How to replace wicd with Network manager 0.7

Postby bigbrovar » Sat Jan 24, 2009 4:28 am

I use mint-xfce 5 (which is the best xfce distro IMHO) although i love wicd and it does most of what i need.. but some of the features in network manager 0.7 are just tool cool to ignore .. so am wondering if there is a way i can replace wicd with network manager on mint xfce.

Of course there is, and in my opinion that is a very wise move.

Open synaptic - search for wicd- right click - select 'completely remove'.

Then search for 'network-manager-gnome' - right click - install.

Job is done. (at least it was for me).
