This to install daemon. You have to run 'wicd-client' if using LXDE or Xfce4, otherwise 'wicd-client --no-tray' as nor mal user.But wait with wicd till pygtk.tczl is updated, current version is broken.

I'm currently using Qubes OS which uses F18. I've run into several issues with netmanager (such as disconnecting frequently when multiple AP share the same SSID) and have found the switch to wicd give me a greater degree of control and more consistent connection.
I would like to know how to have the wicd-client NOT start on start-up.

I have been using wicd rather than the standard network manager without issue until I updated a couple of days ago. I don't have any references to wicd in my autostart file. I just installed it and let it configure itself. Here is the output of sudo ps -o user,pid,ppid,command -ax, when it starts up with two tray instances running USER PID PPID COMMAND
I have Fedora 17 with KDE 64 bit.
I have removed knetworkmanager and installed Wicd-client in kde.
I would that Wicd doesn't ask me the root password every time I turn on my PC.
I have added a rule in /etc/sudoers to avoid this problem but Wicd continue to ask me root password.
