Re: [trinity-users] Wireless connection in Trinity 3.5.13.2

I have the same problem in 3.5.13.2 - no network-manager applet in
Debian Wheezy. I hope something will be made in 14, as my solution for
this problem is quite temporary.
It was possible to install applet by installing older Network Manager
from Squeeze, but it makes dependency mess at least with GTK (some apps
won't run, e.g. Audacious or even Zenity).
Wicd is good, but is not perfect, especially with two-factor
certificate Wi-fi security (eduroam if you are curious), I'm using
just bare wpa-supplicant for it, so it needs console typing to be
started.
