How do I install Network manager???


I want to try the new Debian(5). Someone here from this forum told me that ath5k is included in that release.
But. Since I'm not the best debian user (I use ubuntu), how do I install Network manager for gnome.?????The same network manager as in ubuntu. I tried using downloaded packages but can get it to work.

I prefer wicd as well but you do need to add the repository for it

http://wicd.sourceforge.net/download.php

wicd is in the regular debian repositories. No need to add the sourceforege one to sources.list Check it out.

Absolutely correct, and one more reason to switch to Squeeze unless you have an excellent reason not to. My feeling is that "testing" sounds a bit scary to a newbie (oooohhh better to play safe and use stable). That was my reaction when I installed Debian for the first time. It lasted about 3 days and I switched to testing and never looked back.
cheers,
jdk
