I'd like to tether my Blackberry 9000 to my laptop via usb cable. Is there a painless way to do this in 10.04?

I googled "ubuntu blackberry tether" and found several results. Did you try any of these?

I've tried xmblackberry which I cant get to compile and Barry which seems to have installed but I cannot find a launcher for it and no response from the terminal.

I haven't installed this nor do I have a blackberry but there are directions for installing and running barry (http://www.netdirect.ca/software/packages/barry/modem.php) at the company's website. Assuming you have configured it properly and installed the associative script, you use pppd not a command called "barry".

Tried it to no avail.

If you want further help with this matter you need to specify where you were having difficulty. List your steps and describe at what point you had trouble. For example, did the package install properly? Which script did you use and did the script return any errors? Did everything seem to work from an application standpoint but there was a connectivity problem? What were your network configurations? That's the type of information we need to help you.

Again, please list your steps and describe at what point you had difficulty or noticed an error.

So long as signed up for a plan to allow to tether with your carrier, this worked for Verizon BB Storm2

I just wanted to say that this worked great for my 10.4! Thanks a bunch guys, my school requires all systems to have an antivirus on them to run their wireless, now I can just bypass it! :KS

You shouldn't have to do that with a Linux distribution due to the lack of viruses that would actually affect a Linux system. What university is this?
