I loaded wicd along with the required deps I didn't already have loaded  when connecting via a  3 lines iwconfig script:

python.tcel
dbus_python.tcel
pygobject.tcel
pycairo.tcel
pygtk.tcel
wpa-supplicant.tce
libglade.tcel
dbus_glib.tcel
dbus_python.tcel
wpa-supplicant.tce

No problem with the 3 line iwconfig script, but wicd didn't load.  I'm not very interested in a graphics wireless connector when a script is so easy, but maybe someone else can check this out further who is interested.  (I've got all the other deps loaded in addition to the extras listed above).  Does wicd provide any better connectivity than a script? (note: tested on tc1.2).

3 line solution for atho:

Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe ath_pci
sudo iwconfig ath0 channel X essid linksys key xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
sudo udhcpc -i ath0

I didn't spend a great deal of time on this, but fwiw/ never got this working no matter what prefs I set.  It simply can't find a network, even when already connected.  The kind of gui that tests for available networks (and devices),  lets you choose one, and connects might be nice, but this ain't it (at least, not on my setup).

did u try the latest version of my package, which actually is a downgrade, cause I've used a modified version of wicd that works with udhcp.

I downloaded the version you replaced.  DHCP is set (default) to  automatic (recommended), but the other choices ...like dhcpcd don't seem to work either.  It will actually interfere with my wired connection.

This extension derives from a .deb which is an hacked version of the original wicd, for interfacing with udhcpc that is in TCB.
Don't change the dhcp options.
This application should run out-of-the-box.

Not on my system....(dell laptop) running tc1.2.  I haven't updated, since I'm mostly using tc2, if that's the issue. 

Edit. I tried it on tc_1.4.2, which didn't help.  If wicd is loaded, if have to "sudo udhcpc -i eth0" to get my wired connection going.  I have to get out of wicd, though, because every time it retries the connection is lost.

On 2.0RC1 I've seen that my eth0 device is not autorecognized, but in the options of the program I changed dummy0 to eth0 and it works.

That also works for 1.4.  It's now able to connect to wired eth0.  Got a fix for wireless?     (maybe ath0...)

making some progress using wlan0....it's showing wireless connections....still trying to get it to connect though...

It's working  for wireless, using wlan0 and wext for supplicant driver. This could be a valuable addition to tc...

edit:
It's connecting well to my 80211A, but having problems with 80211B.  There's a problem trying to cancel an attempt to a wireless that isn't connecting.  Nothing short of rebooting seemed to give me another opportunity.
