wicd-curses doesn't show networks, but I am connected over WiFi

I’m currently trying out a BBB rev c with debian in order to gain some familiarity with the system. I have a WiFi module I purchased from Adafruit (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1030) plugged in and it is working. I have configured it via wpa_supplicant.conf and interfaces, it is connected to my network, and I am able to pull up an Apache page with it, ssh sessions, etc. It is wlan0.

However, wicd-curses doesn’t show any available networks. It should be able to see about 10 networks in the area but wicd-curses reports that it can’t find any. Is wicd failing to use a correct driver or something?

From memory as I recall you’ll need to remove eth0 from the wicd-curses conf file, move it to /etc/network/interfaces, then place wlan0 into the conf file if it’s not already there. Something about wicd-curses only being able to handle one interface at a time.

Thanks, I’ll give that a shot and report back. Might be a couple of days though.
