Re: [trinity-users] KNetworkManager not working in Wheezy?

I found that it's possible to install Network Manager from Squeeze, but
I don't recommend it as it may cause some dependency problems. In my
case, this dependency hell went up to GTK, making Zenity, Audacious
etc. unusable, so I had to reinstall and find something other.
I've found that Wicd, which I'm using for wired/home Wi-fi, doesn't
work with my university network (Eduroam), so I have Wicd for normal,
wireless connectivity and a script which starts WPA supplicant for
university network.
I've read in mail header that You're from University, if You have
Eduroam (it's an universal site in many universities), have You found
any method of authenticating it in Wicd?
