In Topic: Wifi Box recognized but can not be connected

I don't understand why I didn't see the file "wicd.desktop" with the folder explorer (with 'show hidden' selected'). I found this file by searching in the terminal with "find / -name '*wicd.desktop' ". Do you know why? 

 

You probably did not enter the proper search path. By default search is limited to the users home directory and its subdirectories. You can change that and start in the main system directory which has the slash / as symbol. So replacing /home/username with / would  result in searching the whole system. (may take some time though)

 

Can you provide the result of:

cat /etc/group | grep netdev

Still puzzled about this whole thing. Too many failures , I'm starting to wonder if your Live USB was maybe damaged or the download incorrect. Did the md5sum match?

When you boot the live CD/USB there is an option to check the distro integrity. Does this show any issue?

 

Another question, any particular reason why you have Bodhi 3.2.1 instead of Bodhi 4.3.1?

No systray is OK.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure wicd-gtk

You need that menu entry to make connections an easy way. After this command it should appear, maybe after logging out and in again.

run

sudo apt-get remove network-manager

this should make the wicd daemon the only network handler. logout and login after the removing.

 

No idea why wicd has no entry in the menu.

Can you give me the outcome of 

dpkg -l wicd*
network-manager*

watch the asterix  ;)

 

While installing wicd did you get a colored screen in the terminal where you had to add your user to the group netdev so you could get access without sudo? How did you act on that screen?

Please execute the following commands:

sudo rm /var/run/wicd/wicd.pid
sudo wicd

The daemon should have started by now.

 

Do you have an entry in the Menu-Applications-Internet? If so can you use it?
