I just tried installing Ubuntu as a dual boot and somehow it bricked my windows install. Anyway, that is not why I am here.
I'm in an odd situation and the ethernet at my apartment is going through maintenance, so I have to work with their public wifi. I'm using my desktop and was able to tether the wifi from my galaxy s7 to windows 10, but on Ubuntu it does not detect it. When I plug in my phone, it asks to use it for MTP, and I've tried accepting and declining but that did not fix it.
Does anyone know what to do to make it work? I've also tried editing the connection, and when I try to switch it to my device, the "save" button greys out. Could it be because I haven't connected the OS to the internet and it needs the drivers, or what?
To add to this, I had installed linux mint 18 as well, and it had the same problem.
I'm completely screwed at the moment and have finals, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
