Settings

link_detect_tool = <0|1|2>

0 = autodetect
1 = ethtool
2 = mii-tool

flush_tool = <0|1|2>

0 = autodetect
1 = ip
2 = route

backend = <ioctl|external>

Default is ioctl backend.

signal_display_type = <0|1>

0 = Show signal strength as a percentage
1 = Show signal strength in dBm

dhcp_client = <0|1|2|3>

0 = autodetect
1 = dhclient
2 = dhcpcd
3 = pump

sudo_app = <0|1|2|3>

0 = autodetect
1 = gksu
2 = kdesu
3 = ktsuss

wired_interface = <interface_name>
always_show_wired_interface = <True|False>
wired_connect_mode = <0|1>

0 = connect to wired interface automatically
1 = do not connect to wired interface automatically

prefer_wired = <True|False>

True = Switch to wired interface if a link is detected, even if already connected to wireless
False = Do not switch to wired interface automatically

wireless_interface = <name_of_wireless_interface>
wpa_driver = <wext|madwifi|ndiswrapper|hostap|hermes|atmel|broadcom|ipw|ralinklegacy|none>

The default (and best supported) is wext.  It should work properly in most cases. The none special value makes WICD pass no -D parameter to wpa_supplicant, which might be useful in some cases.

auto_reconnect = <True|False>

This settings determines whether Wicd will attempt to reconnect on connection loss.

use_global_dns = <True|False>

If set to "True" and values are specified in the global DNS settings below, this will cause Wicd to use these DNS settings.

global_dns_dom = <plaintext_domain_name>

This specifies the default search domain to be used by the resolver.

global_dns_1 = <ip_address>
global_dns_2 = <ip_address>
global_dns_3 = <ip_address>
debug_mode = <integer_value>

0 = disabled
1 = enabled
