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.  Grin
