    Default wicd questions

    How can I get wicd to display current connection status icons in the KDE toolbar. I added the application to the toolbar, but is there a way to display if there is activity going through my Wired Network or how many bars my wireless network has?

    Thanks in advance!

    To show signal strength in the taskbar, type:
    Code:
    wicd-client
    in terminal. The wicd in the Internet menu runs wicd-client --no-tray.

    Awesome, I am now able to get the icon to show up.

    Now my next question is what is the correct way to add a program to autostart.

    I see you can add the program in a few different places but which one would be best for starting wicd?
    Here are a few places I have seen so far:
    ~/.kde3/Autostart
    /usr/share/autostart
    /usr/bin/startkde

    Thanks!
