Strange problem with Wicd connection manager windw

Post#1 by niculinux » 20 Feb 2012, 12:36

Hello

Just wanted to say that despite my wi-fi problems (see here)

when I click on the button "Disconnect" of the Wicd connection manager main window the sistem suddenly hangs at once and there's no way to bring it back to savyness...I could reboot by firin some ctrl+alt+canc burst fire... :D

that'all, hope this may be useful :friends:

To get some more information as to why this hang occurs you could to two things:

Open a terminal and type: wicd-gtk
Now click the disconnect button and watch the terminal for info.

You can also type into the terminal: cat /var/log/wicd/wicd.log
after clicking the disconnect button and doing your trick to get back from the hang state.

Maybe the problem can be fixed if you have more information.
