    Globe Tattoo on Ubuntu Jaunty

    I recently got myself a Globe Tattoo USB Modem. I followed the installation instructions from this site: http://neildecapia.wordpress.com/200...u-jaunty-9-04/. It worked flawlessly.

    My daughter also bought another Tattoo for her laptop. As she has no Terminal knowledge, I made a script for her. I figure I'll share this with the rest of you just in case you need it. (This is my first script, so proceed at your own risk.)

    Installing Globe Tattoo Huawei E1552 HSDPA USB Stick on Ubuntu Jaunty. Make sure that the Globe Tattoo USB Modem is NOT PLUGGED at this time:

    1. First download the attached file. This tar file contains the following:
    a) The files 62-option-modem-modeswitch.rules
    b) globetattooinstall.sh This file is the installation script.
    c) udev-extras .deb package for Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope
    2. Extract above files to the desktop.
    3. Click on the file globetattooinstall.sh. Then click on "Run on Terminal"
    4. Supply your password as required.
    5. Wait.
    6. The Terminal closes and you're done.

    Above script has been tested on MoonOS (3 pc's) and Ubuntu Jaunty (2 pc's). It obviously will not run on other Ubuntu versions as the udev-extras package is for Ubuntu Jaunty.

    Good luck.

    Excellent. Got this working with your help.

    Now my only problem is the speed. I'm getting about 1kb/sec. Google main page takes 50 seconds to load. Actually slower than my 2400 baud modem I had 20 years ago ... I love the Philippines.

    maybe you're connected using GPRS, lock it to WCDMA/UMTS/HSDPA then see what happens.

    BTW im using Globe Visibility locked to HSDPA, my speed varies from 30Kbps ~ 2mbps

    I think its highly likely I'm connecting via GSM (not even GPRS). In the last two houses I've lived in I've been unable to get a 3G signal - when I turn it on, I'm unable to receive calls or SMS. Great stuff, but I've learnt to live with it ...

    > maybe you're connected using GPRS, lock it to WCDMA/UMTS/HSDPA then see what happens.

    So how do you lock the modem to one of these under Linux? I'll definitely give it a try, and even if I get 30kb/s I'll be happy. I've found this link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8340483 which looks hopeful, so I'll tinker around with that this evening.

    If I can suggest a slight modification to your script, it can all be done in a couple of lines.

    Code:
    #! /bin/bash
    
    read -p "This script installs Globe Tattoo USB Modem on Ubuntu. Please unplug it and press any key to continue" 
    sudo apt-get install udev-extras
    sudo echo 'ATTRS{idVendor}=="12d1", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1446", RUN+="modem-modeswitch -v 0x%s{idVendor} -p 0x%s{idProduct} -t option-zerocd"' > /etc/udev/rules.d/62-option-modem-modeswitch.rules
    sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart
    echo "Process completed.  Please insert Globe Tattoo modem."
