I’ve a previously saved Wireless Network in wicd Linux network wireless manager and it appears he has changed his ESSID Wireless Network name.
Pitily there is presently a bug in wicd, so in wicd the wireless network saved under the Access Point (AP) name’s name is changed to another name.
Yet the network is shown in wicd wireless manager under the old name.
Therefore I needed to change the name of the present wireless network.
After a quick investigation I’ve found a way to change it. To do so I had to edit /etc/wicd/wireless-settings.conf and change the old network wireless name to a the new one and afterwards I had to.
debian:~# killall -9 wicd-client
debian:~$ wicd-client &
That’s all necessary as a workaround to the wicd-client bug that presents the old network ESSID name associated to the AP mac address to the new SSID name.
It’s quite ridiculous that such a bugs exist yet in wicd. I’ll report the bug in Debian bug tracking system as well as in wicd website
Let’s hope the developers are about to solve the error very soon.
