IÂ´ve installed Linux Mint recently and itÂ´s almost perfect. ItÂ´s clean, simple and fast. But it hasnÂ´t direct support for my softmodem (Smartlink) from cd.
As I am not an experient linuxer, I tried to install it manually and didnÂ´t make any progress. After five seconds of conection the modem stops and disconnect.
I suggest you to put the drivers for softmodems with a script of installation (like those present on Kurumin Linux), so the begginers, like me, would install them easily. Since MintÂ´s purpose is to provide the best desktop out of the box, it should be nice to have native support for softmodems.
Thank you. (Sorry about my english)
