       wicd-curses - 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 ( 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.


       All of these are case sensitive.

              Bring  up  a  rather  simplistic help dialog.  Of course, it mentions this man page
              first. :-)

       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.  ;-)

              Reminder that your network configuration files are not here ;-)

       Probably lots.  ;-)
