- curses-based wicd(8) controller
wicd-curses is a curses-based network controller that uses the Wired/Wireless
Internet Connection Daemon (wicd) to control your network connections. It is
suitable to run in terminal multiplexers like screen(1).
It is designed to imitate the GTK-based wicd-client(1) as much as possible, and
uses the Urwid (http://excess.org/urwid) console widget library to vastly
This man page only documents the current status of wicd-curses. This may/may not
be the most up-to-date document.
All of these are case sensitive.
- C or enter
- Connect to selected network
- F8 or Q or q
- Quit the client.
- Disconnect all devices from network connections
- If connecting to a network, stop doing so
- F5 or R
- Refresh the network list
- Bring up the preferences controller
- Bring up hidden network scanning dialog
- H or h or ?
- Bring up a rather simplistic help dialog. Of course, it mentions this man
page first. :-)
- Raise the "About wicd-curses" dialog
- Bring up network configuration controller for the selected network
- Delete the selected wired network profile (from the wired network combo
box at the top)
- Rename the selected wired network profile (from the wired network combo
box at the top)
- Bring up instructions on how to edit the scripts. I have implemented a way
to do this in the interface itself, but making it function with all Linux
distros would be difficult. Since you are reading this, you should know
how to do what I suggest. ;-)
- Raise the Ad-Hoc network creation dialog
- Show the list of saved wireless networks, to be able to remove them
- Reminder that your network configuration files are not here ;-)
Probably lots. ;-)
