Ubuntu: Connection made via sakis3g not recognised by software center


I have used sakis3g to connect to internet as network manager is not able to make a connection although it recognizes the modem.But the problem is many software including pidgin and software center doesn't know that computer is already connected to internet and I am having problems installing software especially the debs I downloaded. Although I can still download and install packages from terminal.

So is there any way I can make software center recognize this connection?


can I install debs in some other alternative way?


Ubuntu software center depend on the network manager to detect online status.So If you are connecting to internet without network-manager ,you have to quit it,

Open theterminal and type sudo stop network-manager

It solves the problem
