My 3G dongal requires the proprietary driver to properly work with Ubuntu.
It comes along with Huawei Mobile Partner installer. I was able to install Huawei Mobile Partner and the corresponding driver in Ubuntu Linux 10.04 without an any problem.
However, I can't install it in Ubuntu 13.10. (Didn't work since 12.04)
It gives the below error.
I've tried installing build-essential.
Any help is appreciated!
"make: *** [install] Error 2
Install NDIS driver failed.
The compiling environment is not all ready.
Please check gcc, make and kernel build(/lib/modules/3.8.0-26-generic/build) to be all installed?
Now please enter any key to finish other installations.
NDIS is disabled, and only Modem can be used".
These packages gcc, make, and others are installed.
(The output is taken from a previous version of Ubuntu. The same error message is generated in 13.10. You can regenerate this error by trying to install my driver package. The mobile broadband is not required for the installation)
