12.04 Dialup Problems US Robotics Modem Detection
I am trying to configure my 12.04 system (Thinkpad T530) to run a US Robotics modem USR5637. I am using GnomePPP to connect. When I gksudo gnome-ppp everything works great-the modem is detected and the connection succeeds. But when I launch GnomePPP without su permission, the modem is not detected.
What is going on?
I guess I could create a custom launcher with a gksudo command, but I would rather fix this problem. I tried adduser $user dip and adduser $user dialout and that didn't help. I have been reading the help pages for this issue but can't find anything else to try.
Please help! Thanks!
