    Re: MINICOM "NO CARRIER" message

    I have the same modem usr5637 & am trying to set it up for a non-literate friend on an Eeepc 900 running Intrepid. I want it to use Gnome-PPP as the GUI for simplicity.

    Have managed to get it to connect by running sudo wvdial in a terminal. Have had Firefox working by turning off networking & choosing Online mode in Firefox.

    Won't dial unless I run as root. Get this message:

    Unable to run /usr/sbin/pppd.
    --> Check permissions, or specify a "PPPD Path" option in wvdial.conf
    I have done:

    sudo chown root:dip /usr/sbin/pppd
    sudo chmod 4754 /usr/sbin/pppd
    sudo chmod 777 /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
    sudo chmod 777 /etc/ppp/peers
    & also:

    sudo ln -s /dev/modem /dev/ttyACM0
    Any help greatly appreciated!

    You might have a look at this bug report.
    If I have an apple & I give it to you, still only one of us has an apple. But if I know how to do something & show you how to do it, we both now possess that knowledge. This is the community of GNU/Linux.

    Thanks for that (not the reply I was hoping for).

    Any suggestions for a more dial modem friendly distro? preferably a buntu derivative but will look at others.

    I was hoping for a very simple solution. The end user might have enough trouble turning off networking & getting Firefox to go Online!
