Linux Mint KDE 12 RC - No mobile broadband (Huawei E220)

Post by vaxxipooh »

Hello

I tried out Linux Mint 12 KDE RC on an USB stick, there was no way at all to get up an connection with my Huawei E220 usb modem, besides
that it was VERY slow and unresponsible - Software Center also dies when i try to open it . . . but it looks promising, i hope the flaw's will be gone
in the "real" version.

Have a nice day

What are your system specs? Your overall performance will be impacted if you don't have enough CPU power or system memory.

As for the Huawei E220, see this topic: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=89466. There are more topics on the forums for this device.

Well this should be enough - i have this:
  • CPUs = Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz
    Memory = 1581/2011MiB
    Disk = 354.8/915.0GiB
I had also tried out the latest Xubuntu 11.10 on the same USB stick and that runs lightning fast, but well no connection with Huawei E220 there either
but there it worked when i installed modem-manager from Natty but that doesent worked in Linux Mint 12 KDE RC ... (sigh)
