    gnome-ppp permission denied

    Hi,

    I am running Ubuntu 12.10, connecting to the Internet with a USB modem. I can do this in a terminal with wvdial but only if I use sudo. Without this I am told "permision denied". However, I prefer to use the graphical interface gnome-ppp. With this connection fails, and the log tells me "permission denied". If I open "set up" and click on "detect", I am told that gnome-ppp cannot detect a modem on my system. However, I still have a hunch it may be more of a permissions issue.

    I would be grateful for help in solving this. Please let me know what information I should post here in order to help you help me.

    Many thanks.

    Wrong device was selected.

    Open gnome-ppp, click on "Setup", enter correct device in Device.

    In my case it wasn't one of those in the drop-down menu. It was: /dev/ttyACM1.

    Device can be found with by typing this in terminal: sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
