I'm attempting to set up a dial-up connection with elementary OS Jupiter on a Dell Inspiron B120. I already ran "sudo apt-get install ppp pppconfig pppoeconf pptp-linux" in terminal and successfully got everything installed. While it may have provided support, as far I know there wasn't an interface provided to actually connect, so I went into the repositories and download "GNOME PPP" which seems to provide and nice and easy interface for connecting through a PPP (I'm setting this up for my older grandparents). I have some questions, though.
1) Will GNOME PPP work with elementary and PPP?
2) Under the Setup option, in the Modem tab, you can detect the type of modem present (if any?); it returns stating that "No modem way found on your system" and the device location is set at "/dev/modem" -- Do I need to do something else? Am I doing something wrong?
I would greatly appreciate even a gander at the whole thing. I know dial-up is more than outdated, but it's what they got. I'm just a newbie with the inner-workings of Linux. Thanks!Asked by sjoshua
