Help with CDU-680DOrA Broadband USB

Postby aaronak on Sat Nov 22, 2008 2:14 am

I recently installed Mint Elyssa, and I am trying to install a modem, that has "scripts" included with it for Linux.

The modem is a Franklin ACS offers: http://www.acsalaska.com/NR/rdonlyres/4 ... 080815.pdf

I copied the Linux folder from the modem onto the desktop per instructions,

Instructions included then say to enter: "cd Desktop/Linux",
then: "sudo ./connect", in the terminal and I do,
but the modem doesnt try to connect at all, I get a message saying: "680d interface changer-1.0.1"
and then it says below that: "Segmentation fault",
and then going back to: "desktop/Linux" and cursor in the terminal.

Sometimes it will ask for my password, but when I enter the password the cursor doesnt move, or act like a cursor would when registering input from keyboard, I cant rememeber what the message stated afterwards was.

I am a first time user of Linux, meaning I am actually am trying to get something done (I installed the OS, and registered with this forum), instead of going back to Windows (speaking of which I have Elyssa installed dual with Vista). I need help with commands, and navigating around Linux in general, and will find solutions no problem.

However for now, this is a problem I would like to have help solving.

It appears there are a lot of problems with installing wireless cards from what I saw in the networking section, I am hoping this problem is simply something I am not doing right, as the modem does come with the Linux scripts included.

I work at a Library, we have 3 of these cards plugged into our computers, (windows computers) and I am thinking of getting one for myself.

Curious, I just realized the error message has name of modem with error message.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Ok I found this thread on the Ubuntu forum. I am going to try using the solution they discovered to fix an extremely similar problem I am having. I believe Mint is 99% Ubuntu right?

I am thinking maybe Mint is not for me and I should switch to Ubuntu :mrgreen:
