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.
This package provides the GTK+ client, which has no GNOME dependencies, making it easy to use in Xfce, Fluxbox, Openbox, Enlightenment, ... It also supports a tray icon showing network activity and signal strength.

It did not work on linux mint 19.3 and even worse, it broke wifi resume after sleep. reinstalling wpasupplicant (apt reinstall wpasupplicant) resolved this issue because wicd-daemon was still installed althougd wicd-gtk was allready uninstalled. Took me a few hours to resolve. Should be removed from repo until fixed.

Doesnt connect automatically even if checked, bad password issues all the time, takes ages to actually connect, locks all network devices so others managers cant detect it.

Leider lassen sich einmal eingestellte Werte nicht abspeichern.Ich habe den Eindruck, daß das Programm eigentlich gar nichts bewirkt.

It's ok. Cannot control more than one device at a time. That's a major drawback.
