The wicd image is not yet available, it will be added once it is created on the slackbook, the namespace is reserved. — Matthew Fillpot 2012/09/16 18:25

I strongly believe there should be another section here. The current implementation of wicd uses wireless-tools V29, which has a major flaw in how it allocates space for scanning. In regions where there are too many wireless networks (common now-a-days), scanning fails and the user cannot connect with wicd. A good solution is to use Network manager instead, and there should be a section here which discusses this. — Chris Duston
