If you're using wicd
, you should first be sure you're using the most recent release. However, even with that release, I had some problems using WPA2. (You're supposed to be able to configure it from the "properties" button network selection box, but that didn't work for me on one of my systems but it worked fine on others.) So, what I did was to hard-code my network information in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
, and that seemed to do the trick. (Note that I'm using a Fedora system, so my conf file location may differ from the Slack one.)
If you do a complete wicd
install, you should have the wicd-curses
package also installed, which provides a command-line wicd
interface. That may be a separate package on Slack, but it should be available.
I understand that I haven't provided many details, but man wpa_supplicant.conf
does describe the process fairly well.
