Package: wicd-cli
Version: 1.7.4+tb2-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I configured wicd to use two wired network configurations.

The configuration "wired-default" is set as default and uses dhcp
whilste the other configuration uses statich values for IP
address, dns servers and the like.

With this settings I can switch these configurations via wicd-curses.

But I want to script my network usage.

wicd-cli -z -l

shows two networks with ids "0" and "1"

but regardless of the value of X

wicd-cli -z -n X -c

unconditionally connects to the default configuration.  It does
not even check if X is a valid id.  So

wicd-cli -z -n 5 -c

happily connects via the default settings (using dhcp in my

I would expect to be able to switch wired network settings via

This is my /etc/wicd/wired-settings.conf:

default = 1
profilename = wired-default
lastused = False

default = 0
profilename = wired-m89-static
ip =
netmask =
broadcast =
gateway =
use_static_dns = True
use_global_dns = False
dns1 =
dns2 =
dns3 =
lastused = True

Thanks for your attention, Gregor
