I think we made some progress on that last problem. Urbanvoodoo found the permissions of the skel user are not right. Check this:
With the right permissions you should be able to copy the desktop original config from /etc/skel to your home dir and that, hopefully, will do the trick.

The scanning issue has to do with the wifi-radar default configuration.  This configuration is given in
the file wifi-radar.conf in /etc/wifi-radar/ folder.  You have to find the "Interface" line and replace
the eth0 with whatever your wireless interface is called.  This you can find in
/etc/modprobe.conf.  This way, wifi-radar should let you scan accordingly and form a profile.
As for the automated startup on boot, I would very much like to know how to do that myself.

With wifi-radar 1.9.8 (now in the patches repository) you no longer have to manually edit the .conf file.  Just click the Preferences button and set the interface from within the GUI.  ;D
