Hello I was trying to install Huawei E173 driver by following steps that are available in https://www.ubuntu4u.com/howtos/how-install-huawei-e173-usb-modem-ubuntu-10041204-lts

When I executed sudo bash ./install I received this error: Local path is: /usr/local/Movistar_3.5G

Installing Movistar 3.5G...chmod: cannot access '/usr/local/Movistar_3.5G/config': No such file or directory

                                      [ done ] 

And even if I executed sudo chmod +x install Nothing changed . What can I do to fix this error ?

  • It looks like you didn't Go into the extracted folder – steeldriver Jul 4 '19 at 15:06

    It is quite unlikely that a driver built for Ubuntu 10.04 or 12.04 will ever compile successfully in any recent; that is, not end-of-life, version. Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. – chili555 Jul 4 '19 at 15:10
  • Oh no I already extracted it , and the terminal was opened on it – ubuntu.home Jul 4 '19 at 15:14

I think yo're typo of the string. Read the readme.txt first.

-----How to Install-----
You need login as root

  1. Run tar jxvf linux_install.tar.bz2

  2. Run ./install in TERMINAL to install MobilePartner eg: # bash //install

  3. If you had installed this software in your system before, you will get a prompt: "The software is exist, do you want overwrites? ([Y]/[N])", enter "y" to overwrites or "n" to exit.

  4. If you do not had installed this software in your system before, you will get a prompt: "Please input the install path[/usr/local/Mobile_Partner]:". Then you can input install path(fullpath), or you may using the default path(/usr/local/Mobile_Partner) by press ENTER direct

  5. Finish installing
