As a student in South Asian languages, culture and history, specialising in comparative cultures and cognitive science, I take special interest in the influence of cultural paradigms in the perception and interaction with the world in terms of development. I am also a polyglot with a strong passion for learning languages, including programming languages such as Python. Also I am firm supporter of unix and free software.

Isn't there an equivalent for KDE? I had a prompt in 12.04, why is it gone?

Okay, I created a shared connection, activated it and it shows connected on my laptop. However, it is not picked up by AirDroid which scans other regular WiFi Connections. Did I miss something? (should I post another specific question?)

I have Kubuntu 12.04 and cannot follow the second link you gave me. This seems to be the answer.

This option would require using data credit from both my phone SIM and laptop SIM, it would make transfers expensive, unless I get some free WiFi somewhere. But good one, thanks.
