    WICD Network Manager missing?? Alternative ?

    I have tried to look everywhere but I couldn't find WICD network manager. Has it been dropped in the new release? Or am I not able to find it. If it is there, where to look for it. If not, is there a replacement for this software in the new distro. Thanks..

    It's in there you need to install the package

    Code:
    apt-cache search wicd
    Code:
    apt-get install wicd

    I run the command:
    apt-get install wicd,
    but Netwok-manager worked with the wicd.
    then ran the commands:

    cd /etc/rc2.d
    chmod -x S16network-manager


    it correctly?

    Thanks. One more question. Is there any other tool in Kali that does the same thing (Connects to networks)

    Hi Shashwat, here are a few others (But I haven't tried them all to see if they work with Kali or not)
    Besides of Wicd:
    Kinternet, Wifi-Radar, wlassistant, KNetworkManager (For KDE My friend really likes this one, been meaning to try it out; network-manager-applet for gnome), Wifi-wiz, GTKWifi, and I'm sure there others, but I am not personally aware of them. I hope it helps
