Graphical user interface to control the connman daemon. The connman daemon must be started as you normally would, this program just interfaces with that daemon. You can see what technologies and services connman has found, and for wifi services an agent is registered to assist in obtaining the information from you necessary to logon to the wifi service.

When the user log in for the first time, a local user is created in /etc/passwd and primary group created in /etc/group, and a local home directory is created in /home. This is useful on roaming computers when the password is set up to be cached by for example libpam-ccreds or sssd to allow login without network connectivity using the password provided by a network authentication service like Kerberos or LDAP.

NetworkManager is a system network service that manages your network devices and connections, attempting to keep active network connectivity when available. It manages ethernet, WiFi, mobile broadband (WWAN), and PPPoE devices, and provides VPN integration with a variety of different VPN services.

This package contains a systray applet for GNOME's notification area but it also works for other desktop environments which provide a systray like KDE or Xfce. It displays the available networks and allows users to easily switch between them. For encrypted networks it will prompt the user for the key/passphrase and it can optionally store them in the gnome-keyring.

Wicd is a general-purpose network configuration server which aims to provide a simple but flexible interface for connecting to networks. Its features include:

  • wide variety of settings;
  • ability to connect to (and maintain profiles for) both wired and wireless networks;
  • support for many encryption schemes, including WEP, WPA, WPA2 and custom schemes;
  • wireless-tools compatibility;
  • tray icon showing network activity and signal strength;
  • lack of GNOME dependencies (although it does require GTK+), making it easy to use in Xfce, Fluxbox, Openbox, Enlightenment, etc.

This is a metapackage, it allows installation of all the components of Wicd, including one of the clients, which must be manually chosen.
