tethering an 8520 curve to o2 on linux mint 11
 
Hello folks, fairly new to the blackberry and a little less of a newb to linux . . . . . but by no means a guru !

as the title says, i have an 8520 curve along with a lenovo t61 laptop and i want to tether it as a modem/wifi hotspot via the usb cable (i think? ) using my o2 UK connection which i just changed to enable tethering. . . . . . .

i have had some success and some outright fails getting what i assume are the 'packages' of software together to do this - i looked up 'barry' and have managed to get barrybackup installed via the terminal, i 'appear' to have the barry-utils installed as well although i cant seem to get a GUI up like i can for backup.

I also looked up berry4all which i found via this forum and have tried to follow the installation instructions, but just cant seem to get anywhere, i've downloaded tar files off the berry4all site about three different ones, cant open them, I just cant seem to be able to get anywhere at all and the more i search the more involved it seems to get til i'm lost!

is there anyone here that can give me some newbie proof instructions on how to set this up ??? I'd really appreciate it, dont mind doing stuff in the terminal and will hve a go at anything if it means getting it working !

thank you

Dave

Ok . . . . so i made some sort of progress . . . . i re read the info in the ink at the top of the forum and realised i didnt have the two files created -

/etc/chatscripts/blackberry:
Quote:
ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' ABORT VOICE ABORT 'NO DIALTONE' ABORT 'NO DIAL TONE' ABORT 'NO ANSWER' ABORT DELAYED ABORT ERROR
SAY "Initializing\n"
'' ATZ
SAY "ATE\n"
OK 'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"'
OK 'AT'
OK 'ATDT*99***1#'
SAY "Dialing\n"

And this ...........................

/etc/ppp/peers/blackberry :
Quote:
debug debug debug
nodetach
/dev/pts/0
115200
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -f /etc/chatscripts/blackberry"
nomultilink
defaultroute
noipdefault
ipcp-restart 7
ipcp-accept-local
ipcp-accept-remote
# added this, so that it doesn't disconnect after few mn of innactivity
lcp-echo-interval 0
lcp-echo-failure 999
modem
noauth
nocrtscts
noipdefault
novj # refused anyway, no point in trying every time
usepeerdns
user ""
password ""

so i created them . . . .

then i did this . . . . just out of curiosity . . . . .sudo pppd call blackberry and it comes back
ATZ

after a minute or so if i click anywhere in the terminal it goes back to
dave@dave-ThinkPad-T61 ~ $

but on another occasion i got this -
dave@dave-ThinkPad-T61 ~ $ pppd call blackberry
bash: /usr/sbin/pppd: Permission denied

this is all on my mint install by the way so if that helps any ?? let me know

thank you
