Vodafone /ZTE K3570-z

i have been booting from windows into ubuntu 9.04 so many times trying to install things and dependencies and have finally got the Vodafone / betavine software installed, the problem i'm having is the system still doesn't recognize my mobile broadband dongle at all, i have done a lsusb and it shows the vendor and product id but shows no name, i hoping this is the problem and it is solvable.
supplying lsusb and lsusb -v of the device

home@ubuntu:~$ lsusb

9.04 is now 18months old; so not supported I suspect;
if you want to go on using it, can I suggest you download this small programme: sakis3g

http://wiki.sakis3g.org/wiki/index.php?title=Sakis3G_installation

this page gives ubuntu instructions: it is only 200k I think, so quick;

I used it on Vodafone UK and Vodafone NL this year; it worked well;

this is the home page: http://www.sakis3g.org/

it has:

list of providers and usb_modeswitch built in, so it just .. works

thank you pdc, that worked a treat. Sorry for posting about a now unsupported distro but i keep getting the same problem with later version's of Ubuntu and mint9 which just keep freezing the system.

With a tip from the Betavine forum (http://www.betavine.net/bvportal/forums/index.html?threadId=ff8080812988fa9c012a3ca78fc002 ac&postId=ff8080812988fa9c012a3ca78fc002ad) I got the K3570-Z working on both Kubuntu Lucid and Kubuntu Meerkat as follows:



$ sudo aptitude install python-twisted-core python-tz python-gnomekeyring python-notify wmctrl network-manager-gnome python-glade2 python-gnome2
$ mkdir VC
$ cd VC
$ wget https://forge.betavine.net/frs/download.php/654/bcm_2.99.12-1_all.deb
$ wget https://forge.betavine.net/frs/download.php/652/python-messaging_0.5.9-1_all.deb
$ wget https://forge.betavine.net/frs/download.php/651/usb-modeswitch-data_20100826-1betavine1_all.deb
$ wget https://forge.betavine.net/frs/download.php/653/wader-core_0.5.5-1_all.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb


UPDATE:
After installing the above I was able to add a new Mobile Broadband connection and connect with the standard KDE network manager found in Kubuntu 10.04 as well as on my Kubuntu 10.10 Netbook.
