WICD-CURSES(8)              System Manager's Manual             WICD-CURSES(8)



NAME
       wicd-curses - curses-based wicd(8) controller

DESCRIPTION
       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 simplify development.

       This man page only documents the current status of wicd-curses.  This
       may/may not be the most up-to-date document.

CONTROLS
       All of these are case sensitive.

       C or enter
              Connect to selected network

       F8 or Q or q
              Quit the client.

       D      Disconnect all devices from network connections

       ESC    If connecting to a network, stop doing so

       F5 or R
              Refresh the network list

       P      Bring up the preferences controller

       I      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. :-)

       A      Raise the "About wicd-curses" dialog

       right-arrow
              Bring up network configuration controller for the selected
              network

       delete Delete the selected wired network profile (from the wired
              network combo box at the top)

       F2     Rename the selected wired network profile (from the wired
              network combo box at the top)

       S      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.
              ;-)

       O      Raise the Ad-Hoc network creation dialog

       X      Show the list of saved wireless networks, to be able to remove
              them


FILES
       ~/.wicd/WHEREAREMYFILES
              Reminder that your network configuration files are not here ;-)

SEE ALSO
       wicd-client(1), wicd(8)


BUGS
       Probably lots.  ;-)

       If you happen to find one, ask about it on #wicd on freenode, or submit
       a bug report to http://launchpad.net/wicd.
