    How Do I install EasyTether?

    Hi, I'm trying to install EasyTether on Ubuntu from my phone because I have no internet. When I open the Deb package it opens in ubuntu software center and it wont let me install it. How do I install it without having to use software center?

    I also read a thread saying it works better in WINE. But as I do not have internet access, I can't install WINE. How would I go about installing that as well just incase?

    Re: How Do I install EasyTether?

    When I turn on tethering on my Android and plug it into the computer, Ubuntu automatically knows to get its internet connection from it.

    I am using Androids built in tethering function, but the Easytether website says it uses "standard APIs" so it should be the same.

    Or just use the standard Tether feature from Android? It is in Wireless And Networks in the Settings program, unless your phone came from an American carrier.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Yeah, Im running on Sprint off of my HTC Evo 3D. I rooted it for the sole purpose of tethering. The built in tethering in CM7.1 Alpha blocks HTTPS.

    try putting the deb in a folder all by itself. Then open a terminal and cd into that folder. once there run the command
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i easytether*
    What is the output?

    Well, I got it to install, but its just going in loops trying to connect. Is there any way I can download WINE onto my phone and install it?

    You don't need it please explain loops? I've used easytether for quite some time. And found lots of ways to bugger it up.

    Two possible reasons for that
    1) you don't have usb debugging turned on in your phone
    2) you have an adb shell connected to your phone

    Wait, can you even use adb? if you haven't set that up esytether won't work either
