       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.

       C or enter
              Connect to selected network

       F8 or Q or q
              Quit the client.

       D      Disconnect all devices from network connections

       ESC    If connecting to a network, stop doing so

       F5 or R
              Refresh the network list

       P      Bring up the preferences controller

       I      Bring up hidden network scanning dialog

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

       A      Raise the "About wicd-curses" dialog

              Bring up  network  configuration  controller  for  the  selected

       delete Delete  the  selected  wired  network  profile  (from  the wired
              network combo box at the top)

       F2     Rename the  selected  wired  network  profile  (from  the  wired
              network combo box at the top)

       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.

       O      Raise the Ad-Hoc network creation dialog


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


       wicd-client(1), wicd(8)


       Probably lots.  ;-)

       If you happen to find one, ask about it on #wicd on freenode, or submit
       a bug report to
