The WVDIAL tutorial is very useful for me, unfortunately I am still not able to connect via wvdial but the other Hybrid connection method was simply Out of the Box.

I am getting below error while running wvdial

sudo apt-get install wvdial  
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done wvdial is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. 
sudo wvdial --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.61  
--> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory  
--> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory  
--> Cannot open /dev/modem: No such file or directory  

I have run sudo apt-get update first and then run sudo apt-get install wvdial but still no luck...

I found a command : kdesudo wvdial while hunting on Google. Below is the Terminal output.

mahesh@Mahesh-System-Kubuntu:~$ kdesudo wvdial
