Can not install wicd (conflicts with network manager)


Not sure if I should put this here or in networking, but since it's about an install...

Anyway, I'm trying to install wicd to replace network manager, but when I try to dpkg, I get this:

"wicd conflicts with network-manager
network-manager is present and installed
conflicting packages - not installing wicd"

I've tried uninstalling network manager (through the ubuntu software center), but that hasn't helped although the taskbar icon has disappeared.

So basically, how can I properly remove network-manager and install wicd? Mind, I don't have internet on that computer, but I can airgap.

Could you attempt to do the following.

First to see if ubuntu software center has really removed network-manager, as follows:

Code:
dpkg -l | grep network
check for something like this:

Code:
ii  network-manager                           0.8~a~git.20091013t193206.679d548-0ubuntu1 network management framework daemon
ii  network-manager-gnome                     0.8~a~git.20091014t134532.4033e62-0ubuntu1 network management framework (GNOME frontend
If it's there, try removing it as follows:

Code:
sudo dpkg -r network-manager
Then check with the first shell command if it's gone.

GOod luck!

ii  network-manager-gnome                     0.8~a~git.20091014t134532.4033e62-0ubuntu1 network management framework (GNOME frontend
Was indeed in there, so I did the uninstall and it changed to

Code:
rc  network manager 0.8~a~git.20091013t193206.679d548-0ubuntu1 network management framework daemon
rc  network-manager-gnome                     0.8~a~git.20091014t134532.4033e62-0ubuntu1 network management framework (GNOME frontend
So I'll assume it worked.

Thanks!

It'll work now yes, for insurance i'd run dpkg --purge "packetname" where packetname equals the name that is shown behind dpkg -l | grep network-manager. purge the 2 remaining.

Just to be sure you won't have any remaining block issues with network-manager!

Good luck!
