- won't recognize my usb gprs modem (appears as sr1 in file manager)
Hi RSH,

I had a Huawei usb gprs modem (I think it was E1550, I am not sure though.
It would show as sr1.

Had to install usb-modeswitch from fatdog's package manager.

It changed it back to /dev/ttyUSB0.

Here's description of usb-modeswitch in Fatdog's package manager
Quote:
usb-modeswitch 2.4.0 (GPRS/3D USB modem switcher)

USB ModeSwitch is a mode switching tool for controlling
multi-mode USB devices. Many USB devices (especially GPRS/3G
modems have their MS Windows drivers onboard. These devices,
when plugged in for the first time, will present a USB flash
storage contaniing Windows drivers. After installation these
Windows drivers will switch the mode and activate a new device
(the real modem interface). USB modeswitch enable similar mode
switch for Linux users.

Thanks drunkjedi,

To add..., usb-modeswitch package is also available from Debian/Ubuntu, description:

Quote:
mode switching tool for controlling "flip flop" USB devices
Several new USB devices have their proprietary Windows drivers onboard,
especially WAN dongles. When plugged in for the first time, they act
like a flash storage and start installing the driver from there. If
the driver is already installed, the storage device vanishes and
a new device, such as an USB modem, shows up. This is called the
"ZeroCD" feature.

On Debian, this is not needed, since the driver is included as a
Linux kernel module, such as "usbserial". However, the device still
shows up as "usb-storage" by default. usb-modeswitch solves that
issue by sending the command which actually performs the switching
of the device from "usb-storage" to "usbserial".

This package contains the binaries and the brother scripts.


Fred

Thanks drunkjedi & fredx181.

I'd downloaded usb-modeswitch-2.5.2+repack0-2ubuntu1-beaver from bionic beaver repository using my tahr based puppy. Since this comes with different libs compared to bionic I downloaded all dependencies which resulted in these files:

libpipeline1_1.5.0-1_i386.deb
usb-modeswitch_2.5.2+repack0-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
usb-modeswitch-data_20170806-2_all.deb
gcc-8-base_8-20180414-1ubuntu2_i386.deb
libc6_2.27-3ubuntu1_i386.deb
libgcc1_8-20180414-1ubuntu2_i386.deb
libudev1_237-3ubuntu10_i386.deb
libusb-1.0-0_1.0.21-2_i386.deb


Made a first test using upupbb 18.05 which was successful.

After installing these files:

libpipeline1_1.5.0-1_i386.deb
usb-modeswitch_2.5.2+repack0-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
usb-modeswitch-data_20170806-2_all.deb


the gprs usb modem didn't appear anymore as sr1 on the desktop. Instead it appears as /dev/ttyUSB0 in rerwin's gprs-connect (luckily it was installed) and made me able to connect to the web immediately (after setting up the APN and choose phone number).

After installing above listed files into BionicDog I couldn't find anything to setup APN and phone number etc.

What would I need to do to connect to the web then?

PostPosted: Thu 03 May 2018, 19:01    Post subject: Getting Sound on a Toshiba Satellite L775d
Subject description: and some Wifi Questions
 

Hi fred & All,

Much to my pleasant surprise I was able to boot a USB-Key installed BionicDog 64-bit to a workable desktop on my wife's Toshiba Satellite L775d Laptop. With two exceptions everything worked OOTB.

The first exception was WIFI. My network was seen (which tells me that the proper firmware and drivers are present) but it uses WEP encryption. If someone can assure me –from actual experience-- that peasywifi will accept and use a WEP password, I'll make another stab at following its instructions.

My work-around was to install frisbee_1.2-20170928dd64_mod_amd64.deb which had either been built for StretchDog64, or I had stored it in a folder of debs useful to StretchDog64.

Other than wondering whether there was a specific version of frisbee for BionicDog64, that left only the absence of sound. I am certain that there must be drivers and firmware for BionicDog64*, as sound worked OOTB on the 32-bit upup BionicBeaver.

Could someone kindly provide instructions for determining what sound related devices are on the Toshiba, what drivers and firmware are need for them, and how to install those.

I could provide a report from PupSysInfo under BionicBeaver, but think it would be better if in the future I could find out this information in the absence of PupSysInfo.

Thanks in advance,

mikesLr

*Sound also fails on StretchDog64, but as I didn't try dpup-stretch on the Toshiba, I don't know whether there are debian drivers and firmware. Probably, but less certainly.

Yes it does.

As you know, there are variations of the WEP key. For example, 5 alpha-numeric characters WITH quotes or 10 hex digits WITHOUT quotes.

I would try to use the installed wvdial. Here an example of wvdial.conf:

Code:
[Dialer Defaults]
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","internet.wind"
Carrier Check = yes
Modem Type = Analog Modem
Baud = 460800
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
ISDN = 0
Phone = *99***1#
Password = ''
Username = ''
Stupid Mode = 0


Change internet.wind with your APN and change phone number.

That's strange that the sound was gone, there's program from rcrsn51 in repo: sound-card-selector, it might help solving the problem (run after install from Menu > System)
Install with Synaptic or from terminal using apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update # might be required
apt-get install sound-card-selector

No reply?

@backi, strange, I get the same message from terminal, but smplayer works well for me. (don't know what the message means exactly, btw)

Code:

_IceTransOpen: Unable to Parse address /usr/bin/x-session-manager
Qt: Session management error: Could not open network socket

Yes, you need to go in (mounpoint) /mnt/sdaX to open files.
If I remember well, you asked about this earlier, and solved it by installing gvfs + dependencies.
