I just want to let you know that the Telia 4G usb modem (Huawei E392) works out of the box with Kubuntu Linux 11.10.
The guy in the store said they didn’t support linux, but I was allowed to try it out and when I threw it in I had to wait 10-15 seconds before network-manager had discovered it (due to Huawei modems think they have to emulate a CD in order to auto-install in Window, WTF! ).
After that I chose “Manage connections” in network-manager and added a new mobile broadband connection. It suggested the modem (yipee) and I chose country and provide. Within 2 seconds of clicking on the new connection I was online with this fast new modem 🙂
Very nice. So the support on Kubuntu linux 11.01 is good and I it should be the same on ubuntu since it the same base system.
BTW. I use KDE SC 4.8 (standard in 11.10 is 4.7. But now less than a month from official Kubuntu 12.04 release that uses KDE 4.8). I have no idea if it inflicts on anything with the network-manager plasma widget being developed a lot lately.
