Want to use Ubuntu Network Manager instead of wicd Network Manager on Backtrack5R2?

Try this :

1. Install Network Manager

sudo apt-get install network-manager

2. Edit /etc/network/interfaces

sudo pico /etc/network/interfaces

So it’s just contain this:

rumy@cbug-lair:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

3. Edit /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf

pico /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf

So it’s contain:

rumy@cbug-lair:~$ cat /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf
# This file is installed into /etc/NetworkManager, and is loaded by
# NetworkManager by default. To override, specify: ‘–config file’
# during NM startup. This can be done by appending to DAEMON_OPTS in
# the file:
# /etc/default/NetworkManager



4. Reboot
