Is wicd needed for LXQt/Kwin?

Currently using KDE and LXQt DE's. Wicd is appearing in KDE alongside KDE's Network Manager Applet - any reason not to remove wicd? (Remember using it many years ago on earlier Linux Distros. wink

Probably not but you can check by simulating a removal:

aptitude --simulate purge wicd{,-cli,-curses,-daemon,-gtk}

Re: Is wicd needed for LXQt/Kwin?

That's strange, the LXQt desktop metapackage only lists wicd as a Recommends and it also has network-manager-gnome or nm-tray as alternatives for that.

Does this work:

apt install --simulate nm-tray wicd{,-cli,-curses,-daemon,-gtk}-

If that still results in a mass removal then just disable wicd instead:

# update-rc.d wicd defaults-disabled
