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; * tray icon showing network activity and signal strength; * lack of GNOME dependencies (although it does require GTK+), making it easy to use in Xfce, Fluxbox, Openbox, Enlightenment, etc.

This is a metapackage, it allows installation of all the components of Wicd, including one of the clients, which must be manually chosen.
