Slax 9,2,1 Wifi


I burned the Slax 9,2,1 on a DVD to try it live.
It seems to be based on debian now.
There is a web browser, however I did not see any Wifi manager so
I can connect myself. There is no point to have a web browser without
a Wifi connection.

I'm not familiar with programmation matters, and my knowlege of terminal
commands are limited.

Thank you!

I saw this question after I saw that slax is back (yay)
Since this is my first post I can't put in a url but The guy answered in his blog on slax dot org today how to do it (the blog post dated today November 17, 2017)

To quote him

If you are looking for a GUI to configure your wifi network, you may try

apt install network-manager-gnome
nm-applet &

Or better (half download, only 50MB):

apt install wicd
wicd-gtk -t &
So, you install these from the terminal.
