Hi Jochen,

if your WLAN worked well with nm-applet then you don't have to install a new driver in order to get wicd running, I think.

The only "problem" of wicd I noticed is the lack of good WPA templates. In my special case I also had to write my own WPA template. If you
know how your wpa_supplicant configuration has to look like, then it's easy to create a corresponding template for wicd.
