I tried to install a dialup connection in my ubuntu 11.10, my device is USB using a beoadband connection, It comes with source files to install the software which run this Internet Connection.

The source files came with .tar.gz ext. (PCL_SUTSDNVOC.tar.gz). and there is ReadMe text file contain the setup instructions. ok ..??
here is it:-
Before installation, make sure you have the needed dependencies installed (qt3, wvdial1.5.6 or newer).

- Make sure you are in root privilege.

The steps of installation are as following:
- Copy the installation packet "PCL_MEDMAR.tar.gz" to Desktop or other path;

- extract and get a folder, the folder include following files or folders:
Join_Air.tar.gz This is a installition packet;
install.sh This is a setup script;
tools There are somes need needed dependencies in the path.

- Double install.sh in the directory to install the software;

I did all the steps. but i am not sure about the if i have the needed dependencies installed (qt3, wvdial1.5.6 or newer).

Q1- What is qt3 ?
Q2- i downloaded the wvdial.deb from the internet but when i started install it (from terminal) it tolled me this source is not compatible with system. ok .. i restart the system but a BIG PROBLEM HAPPENED .. DESKTOP INTERFACE CHANGE COMPLETELY my question is why this happened ... how i can restore my desktop again ..
