Possible to auto-launch Wicd without having to enter password?

#1 Postby Raymzap » Sun Dec 24, 2017 10:12 am

Hi.

I have antiX installed on an old 2.0 USB drive. It works very well. I went to the control center and uncommented the line to show the network manager in the panel. However when I next loggged in, it asks for my password.

How do I auto launch Wicd without having to enter my sudo password?

Thanks.

If you are running liVE then use the wicd boot menu option.

If you are running installed, edit /etc/defualt/wicd. There is a start-dameon option at the top set to no. Set it to yes, save and reboot.

That worked fine. I had 2 instances of Wicd in the panel but commented out the original in the control center method. No password asked for anymore.

Cheers.
