I have a usb internet tether, but it will not work in Ubuntu, unless I download something in the terminal, but I also can not get internet until I get this device working. I am able to use my Windows side on the internet, that's how I am doing this, but not with Ubuntu side.
Is there any way, that allows me to download a packet (that i have directions for) while using Windows side, in the command-line?
This is the fix I found for my usb device, that I can't do without internet.
To get it working, make sure your iPhone is not plugged in. Then open up terminal and add the following repository:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmcenery/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-dev libimobiledevice-utils ipheth-utils gvfs
After this is done, turn MyWi application back on and plug it in. It will not seem to work if you have it plugged in, and then turn it on.
