This works as i just did a successful installation of the latest wicd package. Although networkmanager is much better thatn before, wicd connects quicker and mostly importantly it never has any problem connecting after resuming from hybernation or standby.

I know that wicd doesn't have support for VPN yet. So, I am wondering... is there any alternative to use wicd + VPN ? I have to use wicd instead of gnome network manager because I keep loosing my connection with the last one.
After rebuilding a machine with a fresh install of 13.10 Server, I see the following errors when trying to run wicd-curses:
Can't connect to the daemon, trying to start it automatically...

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.
