Replace Networkmanager with wicd

April 27, 2011 Leave a comment

One year I never use KDE, but now I want to try it. KDE still has bug in Network Management widget. If I connect using usb modem screen may freeze. If you have same problem like me, try replace networmanager with wicd and use wvdial to connect with your usb modem. Install the following packages :

pacman -S wicd wicd-gtk

add wicd to daemons list in /etc/rc.conf. Don’t forget to disable networkmanager daemon first.

Happy Arching 😉
