Installing Wicd in Debian

Wicd is included in Debian Sid, so you can just use apt-get install to get it.

You can also use the apt repository. Just add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb lenny extras
where lenny is your version of Debian in lowercase (lenny, sid). You'll also need to add the key used for signing Wicd by running the following command in a terminal:
wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -
Now you can apt-get update and apt-get install wicd to install Wicd. If you are using Lenny and you use Madwifi, make sure to use wext in Wicd.
