Ubuntu: Problem While Upgrading Modem Manager Ubuntu 12.04


I am having a problem with Mobile broadband, it frequently disconnects about every 2-3 seconds. There was not any updates available in the synaptic package manager.

I downloaded the source from this link (ver. 0.7.) http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/ModemManager/

And then tried to install according to instructions given, configure Make, the install was done, but modem manager is not working.

When I type command modem-manager in the terminal, it asks to install modem-manager.

Is there anything I am missing. I don't know what to do next. Can somebody provide me the .deb package for 12.04.3 LTS x64 version, so that I can install the same with just one click, with GDEBI.

Thanks in advance.


It doesn't need to install Modem manager from sources which are difficult to install. Modem Manager is in Ubuntu Repository . Run this command to install :

sudo apt-get install modemmanager modem-manager-gui  

If you need to upgrade Modem Manager, run:

sudo apt-get --only-upgrade install modemmanager  

Or you can Download the latest version from www.updatesubuntu.org and install the .deb file.

sudo dpkg -i [FILENAME]  

** Or right click on the file and select Open with Software Center or Open with Gdebi Package Installer.
