I'm trying to get the internet from my Nexus 4 ubuntu-touch through the USB as described here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Android_Tethering (this is for Android).

What I cannot accomplish is to see the USB as a network using ifconfig -a.

Do I need to enable something on the Ubuntu-Touch for this?
