I never heard of wifi-radar, thanks I might check it out. With
a windowmananger (fluxbox) on stretch for a laptop that might move around
I used this as a starting point:
There's really not much need for a gui app, so basically I just use a
script to run 'wpa_cli enable all' when I want to connect to the several
known ap I use. For adding a new network, sometimes it's easier to use
the interactive interface, but adding them to the wpa_supplicant.conf
is pretty easy, it's up to you.
I really have no idea why installing wicd would replace sysvinit-core with
systemd-sysv. I don't have a sysvinit system setup to test that install,
and you didn't show the output from the apt command you had a problem
with, so I'm thinking maybe you want to start another systemd thread for
whatever reason... ?
It might be a bug if wicd requires systemd as init? but I have not
researched the issue. I think it's a lot of work for little gain
to fight the way things are. Systemd is here, it has been working fine
for yrs. It is the default init for debian. I really dont see why you
would say it is 'insidiuous' because it is widely known to be this way.
