Quick notice for fellows at Politecnico di Milano

Hello people,

if any of you happen to study at Politecnico di Milano, use Wicd, and being frustrated by opening 6 shells to open up a f*****g connection, I might have something for you:

http://github.com/drf/policonnect/tree/master

It’s a Qt+Polkit-qt generator of templates for Wicd to connect from Wicd to the “internet” network just by entering a password, as if you were using a standard WPA connection. Try it out, if you like, and report any issues to me.

Beware: italian language only, even though I’d appreciate if somebody at least wrapped up all the strings and provided an english translation. Patches more than welcome.

UPDATE: For people using Arch, you can also grab the pkgbuild.

Laters,

  1. se me lo dicevi potevo evitarti la “perdita di tempo” (che poi perdita di tempo non lo รจ mai) di scriverlo…
    esiste uno script creato da quelli del poul che poteva esserti utile…ecco il link: http://polinux.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/polinux-desktop-2.0/script/wifiwizard-wicd.sh

  2. Infatti รจ proprio basato su quello ๐Ÿ™‚ ho mandato il link anche a loro, solo che lo script mi sta sulle balle e con questo puoi gestire meglio i certificati. Tra l’altro gli avevo promesso tutto questo tempo addietro, quindi mi sentivo un po’ in obbligo ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Thanks a lot, it’s really a pain to connect my pc to the wifi connection. I will try as soon as I’m back to polimi (sede como \o/)
