I recently started using Wicd wireless network manager. However I dislike the default tray icons.
Since there aren’t many nice ones available I adapted the NetworkManager icons in the Elementary icon theme by Dan Rabbit for Wicd. I’ve just made the version for light backgrounds for now.
Since Wicd displays the network traffic I added this to the icons with a simple dot; downstream on the left, upstream on the right.
tar -zxvf wicd-elementary-light.tar.gz
Copy to the Wicd icons folder:
cp ./* /usr/share/pixmaps/wicd/
