Sorry for this little post. Just want to inform autowifi's users that the new release should now support neuf/sfr hotspots too.
my PPA is not up-to-date (due to quickly/launchpad trouble)
you will find latest releases here !!!
Sorry for that ! It seems it makes some times since autowifi couldn't autologin on freewifi hotspots. In fact, free.fr made some changes in the authent process, and autowifi was broken for 1 or 2 months (?!). In daylife, I use only FON spots, so I never saw this bug, sorry ;-)
Now it should be corrected with 0.1-public23 release for lucid.
It's an old project I used in my netbook since one year. But I released it under GPL2 licence, thanks to quickly ;-).
It's a simple pygtk application which stays in the gnome systray. It will try to automatize your web-based authentification on free hotspots which support this kind of thing (currently, only freewifi), letting you surf without the hassle of filling a web-based authentification.

The original announce on ubuntu-fr
To test the marvelous quickly : I've done a little application which is able to send files/folders (as a zip archive if needed) to dl.free.fr (which is a sharing host service). I called it FreeTP, and it's now available in my new ppa.
Quickly is marvelous : it works as expected. You just have to code your app, and it does all the rest (template, packaging, licensing, source control (thru bzr), debian repository (launchpad)). A real breeze in the world of ubuntu/gnome/gtk/python development ! A lot of time was saved, thanks for that ! I've not taked the time to explore launchpad yet, but it seems it could provide bug tracker, mailinglist, ... great!
I think I will use quickly in the future, for this kind of things.
