    Maybe I'm just really slow today, but all I'm seeing on the source page is the source and the diffs for each successive version. I don't see any .debs there

    I won't answer to difficult guestions.

    Re: network-manager .8 broke USB 3G mobile broadband

    I see the entire version history and links to the diffs. I cannot, for the life of me, find any reference to builds on the page. The only .debs I can see are the ones from the PPA listed under "other versions..." that I had linked to a few posts ago.

    EDIT: Never mind, I am overtired and lacking observational skills today!

    @taavikko thanks for the walkthrough.

    I removed modemmanager and downgraded network-manager and can verify that this returns the funcionality of my USB 3G modem. Hope to see some movement on the related bugs going toward Alpha 5.

    Hi tekstr1der,
    regarding your bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/410634
    especially comment#11:
    1) Stop NetworkManager
    2) run /usr/sbin/modem-manager --debug
    3) Start NetworkManager
    4) Plug in your modem
    I am trying to get 'log info' but I faced:
    Code:
    g@KKa4:~$ sudo /usr/sbin/modem-manager --debug
    
    ** (modem-manager:3669): WARNING **: Could not acquire the org.freedesktop.ModemManager service as it is already taken. Return: 3
    after stopping network-manager with: sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager stop

    Can you help me skip this problem?

    Thanks in advance,
    George

    Re: network-manager .8 broke USB 3G mobile broadband

    I had a similar problem in Jaunty. When i plugged my 3G USB Dongle (Option), it was recognized only as USB storage and mounted as a new usb drive.


    Ejecting (not unmounting) the drive makes Network Manager recognize the 3G modem and work ok.

    Haven't tried it in Karmic.

    Hope it helps.

    Run it without sudo.

    Code:
    /usr/sbin/modem-manager --debug

    Re: network-manager .8 broke USB 3G mobile broadband

    Hi tekstr1der, aprox. same results:
    Code:
    g@KKa4:~$ /etc/init.d/NetworkManager stop
     * Stopping network connection manager NetworkManager                    [ OK ] 
    g@KKa4:~$ /usr/sbin/modem-manager --debug
    
    ** (modem-manager:3056): WARNING **: Could not acquire the org.freedesktop.ModemManager service.
      Message: 'Connection ":1.84" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.ModemManager" due to security policies in the configuration file'
    g@KKa4:~$ sudo wvdial
    [sudo] password for g: 
    --> WvDial: Internet dialer ...
    ... possibly because I moved one step backwards to Alpha 4, I will test it later after upgrading it.

    Thanks,
    George

    @GeorgeVita: I was mistaken about sudo. I had assumed modem-manager was not running. From comment #14 in Bug #410634:
    To get the log of modem-manager, you need to kill the previously running process launched at boot time. Otherwise you will get a dbus error.

    Re: network-manager .8 broke USB 3G mobile broadband

    1) Stop NetworkManager
    2) run /usr/sbin/modem-manager --debug
    3) Start NetworkManager
    4) Plug in your modem
    In 'plain' command line is:
    Code:
    g@KKa4:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager stop
     * Stopping network connection manager NetworkManager                    [ OK ]
    g@KKa4:~$ ps -A | grep modem
     2292 ?        00:00:00 modem-manager
    g@KKa4:~$ sudo kill 2292
    g@KKa4:~$ sudo /usr/sbin/modem-manager --debug
    ** Message: Loaded plugin Huawei
    ** Message: Loaded plugin Option High-Speed
    ...
    g@KKa4:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager start
     * Starting network connection manager NetworkManager           [ OK ] 
    g@KKa4:~$
    From https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/410634
    I am just adding the detailed procedure I used to get the 'modemmanager log data' (in case a less experienced user like me is trying to find it):

    0. boot without the modem, wait for the system to fully load

    1. open a terminal window and stop network manager:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager stop
    system responds: * Stopping network connection manager NetworkManager [ OK ]

    2. find the modem-manager process number:
    Code:
    ps -A | grep modem
    system responds: 2292 ? 00:00:00 modem-manager
    where in above example '2292' was the process number

    3. kill the modem-manager process:
    Code:
    sudo kill 2292
    REPLACE 2292 with your results

    4. run modem-manager in debug mode:
    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/modem-manager --debug
    system responds some messages and remain there waiting for new triggers:
    ** Message: Loaded plugin Huawei
    ** Message: Loaded plugin Option High-Speed
    ...

    5. open a NEW terminal window to start network manager:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager start
    system responds: * Starting network connection manager NetworkManager [ OK ]

    6. attach modem, wait at least 30 seconds for the full initialization

    7. try to connect via network manager icon

    8. wait at least 1 minute for the connection and if not established clisk disconnect

    9. disconnect modem

    Finally copy paste all data from first terminal window (containing log data).

    Regards,
    George

    P.S. I believe that my E169 problem is similar to E220 and I am not going to open a new 'bug' report
    And also copy comment #25 of https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/410634
    Also, I'd like to request that if you're having NM 0.8 3G problems and you *don't have an Huawei E220*, please open a new bug, as these problems are usually vendor specific. Thanks!

    Regards,
    George
