SNS buglets fixed

May 22, 2017 — BarryK
SNS is my Simple Network Setup.

Thanks to Philh who posted about showing wifi networks in order of field strength:

I implemented that. But, I do have a list of old buglets, decided to tackle those. Stuff like:

1. Right-click on tray icon, chose "Disconnect from network", but it doesn't. Not always anyway.
2. Click on a button to delete a network connection profile, sometimes not deleting.

I fixed those also. The modified scripts are /usr/local/simple_network_setup/rc.network and sns.
The woof-CE guys would probably be interested in these fixes, except that they have probably diverged the scripts from mine somewhat by now.

Anyway, my fixed scripts will be in the next release of Quirky or Easy, if they want to examine them.

I noticed a recent post, someone wanting SNS to do static address setup, not using dhcpcd. Yeah, that has been on my to-list for a very long time.
