Wicd on openSUSE 11.1

On July 29, 2009, in openSUSE 11.1, Wicd, by Dipin Krishna
For this, the easiest way is to use one-click install.

Once installed, go to YaST, and as root user remove all matters related to NetworkManager:

Afterwards, go to Network Devices> Network Settings, which warns us that the network is currently controlled by NetworkManager and …. Click OK.

Changes to the Traditional Method with ifup option and uncheck Change Default Route via DHCP. Then in the Summary tab, select the wireless card, and click on the Edit button. In my case, it is necessary to switch to DHCP only with version 4. In the General tab, uncheck the Enable Device Control for users not using Root KInternet.

With this we are able to connect using Wicd. You must restart the machine.
If for some reason, when asked to restart the root password to run Wicd, it can be solved by opening a terminal as Root and entering the following line:

chkconfig wicd on

It may also be unable to see the icon in the system tray so it would be necessary to have installed the packages for gtk.
