Bug Description

Reporting this as a bug after I asked a question and a suggestion was made to report a bug.

I am currently using/testing lubuntu 12.04 daily build (11.04) and usb-modeswitch is not installed by default. Because of this, it is not possible to use bradband connection via USB modems (in my case Vodafone K4605) because some of the USB modems depend on usb-modeswitch.

Reassigning to lubuntu-meta.

affects: usb-modeswitch (Ubuntu) → lubuntu-meta (Ubuntu)
Changed in lubuntu-meta (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Triaged

As far as I can recall this package was not installed by default in any of the previous lubuntu releases either? I had the same problem with the package not being available, pretty bad if you just installed Lubuntu on some new machine before you left home and are now trying to get online with the USB 3G Modem you have with you.

I would also opt to include this package by default, but this is probably even an Ubuntu, not just an Lubuntu problem?

Yikes! Julien was working on some final tweaks for 3G, it is in the laps of the Gods as to whether he can get it squeezed in as part of that overhaul, or we are too late for 12.04

I guess adding "usb-modeswitch" will mean "usb-modeswitch-data" is also added as there is dependency?
