I have a huawei 3g modem with installed software for linux

Asked by Rob Brugh on 2012-11-25

originally I set up using the manual network conexions manager however while it works with default provider. every time i plug in a box comes up cant find autorun. I managed to copy all software to desktop. however I would like to know how to program from terminal so that when I plug in it automatically recognises modem and the 3g provider (in this case Vivo Brazil, comes with icon)
Just a run down of the programs installed in modem they are write protected but I managed to copy to desktop. I would also like to place them in an apropriate file if possible. already in /:home is Vivo Internet with setup exe, however when I run it and the setup wizard comes up with the following message Error opening file for writing Z:\mediaVIVO INTERNET\NtSetP.exe
  Home\vivo internet contains data.bin and setup.exe
Desktop contains
autorun.sh
Autorun.exe
AUTORUN.INF
install_linux
Startup.ico
SysConfig.dat

How do I program the install from terminal please

I have never seen this problem (that looks like a Windows installer package, but the install_linux and .sh files make that really strange). If the settings you need are not in the built-in 3G modem manager then I am not sure how you would find the correct details to put into the connection wizard it provides.

I am fairly sure that installing something downloaded online like this would operate correctly as it is very, very rare for any internet provider to know ARM Linux even exists, let alone specially support it.

I will have a look around and see if there's a way to support Vivo on the current system image without using this installer.

Can you help with this problem?
