Ubuntu: Problem While Upgrading Modem Manager Ubuntu 12.04



Question:

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.


Solution:1

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.
