wicd is a wired and wireless network manager for Linux.
Some features include:
- Ability to connect to wired and wireless networks
- Profiles for each wireless network and wired network
- Many encryption schemes, some of which include WEP/WPA/WPA2
- Compatible with wireless-tools
You will need to start the wicd service at boot by adding the following
to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd ]; then
my rc.wicd is shown to be executable. I try to add if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd ]; then
but not able to save. I'm writing these codes to these files as root.
I can't think of a reason why you would not be able to edit (and save) the files if you are doing it as a root user. Specifically, what file are you editing, with what tool, and what error message do you get when trying to save?
