i found thius link to ceni packagehttp://mirror.lug.udel.edu/pub/siductio ... in/c/ceni/
downloaded the .deb file and opened with gdebi
clicked install and all dependencies were met and package installed correctly
I then connected my vodafone mobile broadband usb adaptor, switched it on a ran sudo ceni in terminal
ceni asks to disable network manager, which i did, it then lists the available hardware interfaces
however unlike ceni on antix ceni on lmde does not recognise the vodafone mobile broadband usb adaptor
so the question now is this...
what is the difference between antix and lmde that allows ceni on antix to recognise the vodafone adaptor while ceni on lmde to not recognise it?
both are based on debian testing...
