Great app, just one suggestion: change the wireless icons to match the kde 4.5 monocromatic icons.

Thanks for your suggestion. I still have to figure out how the other applications get their monochromatic icons (if they provide them or if they are part of the icon set), but I haven't upgraded to 4.5 yet so I'll get back to that later.
ps: thanks for the gentoo ebuild ;)

Thanks for such a great masterpiece. I love it. Just in case you want to consider a few of improvements, here I go:

1.- It would be nicer to change main window title from "Wicd Client KDE" to "Wicd Client for KDE".

2.- I miss the ability to show the currently-connected network strength signal in the tray icon.

3.- Unlike the position, the main window does not remember its dimensions when resized.

4.- When selecting a network, the "Disconnect" button should change to "Connect" when not connected to such network and the other way around when connected.

All the above tips and minor improvements that would improve Wicd Client "for" KDE's usability.

Thanks again for such a great job!

Thank you for your comments.
1- Well "Wicd Client KDE" is just the name of the application (I admit I was short on ideas :p), does it sound that bad? If it's just for the window title, "Wicd Client for KDE" seems a little bit too verbose to me, maybe just "Wicd client"?
2- hmm I'm not sure i understand... The tray icon is actually changing with the signal strength, but maybe it is hard to see. Or maybe you want to display "xx%" over the icon?
3- Thanks for pointing that out.
4- Again, maybe I misunderstand, but what you describe is how the behaviour is supposed to be and how it behaves for me. But maybe it's a bug... could you please eleborate or provide screenshots?

Hi again,

Well, I'll try to explain my comments to you better:

1.- Regarding the name, if you thought about something like "Wicd client KDE", I would prefer "Wicd client for KDE" since the yours sounds like incomplete to me. However, it's more verbose as you say. Maybe you might consider a new name: what about KWicd?

2.- In keeping with the tray icon, I meant to have something more visual to know the signal strength just watching at it. A nice idea would be to use a different set of icons. You could base on the current one but having the antenna different colours depending on the signal strength:
.- Red: when signal is very low (<25%)
.- Orange: when signal is low (<50%)
.- Yellow: when signal is good (<75%)
.- Green: when signal is excellent (>=75%)

3.- Good I got you understand at least something! :-P

4.- OK, I see now why you didn't catch what I meant. For each network you have a set of 3 icons to its right side. Each of this icons refer only to the selected network. The first one is to connect/disconnect. The second one is to enter its settings dialog. Finally, the third one is to show an information dialog. However, there is another disconnect button in the upper bar. This is the one I meant and it doesn't change no matter what network you've selected. I think it would be nice to change its function depending on the selected network. When the select network is connected it should allow you to disconnect and the other way around. In this scenario, maybe the first button of the 3 icons set is a bit useless, isn't it? I think it's enough having just a single connect/disconnect button for all networks, because you can connect only to a single one at a time. If you are connected to the network A and want to connect to B, if you press "connect" on B, it should firstly disconnect from A and then connect to B. So you need just a single button for this.

Again, fantastic job. I hope you understand my comments fully this time.

A million thanks! :-)

1- KWicd seems to be used by another project... But I changed my mind, go for "Wicd client for KDE". You win ;)
2- I agree with you, we need something more visual. I'm not very skilled at drawing icons, so at first I might just take the ones from the NetworkManager applet (they look quite similar to the current ones, with a blue gauge on the right hand side).
3- ;)
4- The problem with removing the connect/disconnect buttons in the list is that they are the only way to toggle a connection with only one clic (note that you can also toggle a connection by double-clicking in the list). I don't want to loose that. So considering this, I don't think making the "Disconnect (all)" button "smarter" is necessary. To be honest, I don't use this button myself, but I decided to put it there because it was present in the gtk client, so I thought some people might want it.
Thank you for taking the time to explain your thoughts!

Hi,
thanks but I decided to go with another solution (see above).
There is no clean way to change the icons at the moment, because the app uses the system icons. So technically you can change them, but this will have effects on all your system, so I do not recommend it.
Note that this might change in the near future, so stay tuned.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
