Tethering Huawei u8100 in Ubuntu Linux

Attempting tethering on Ubuntu, using instructions originally posted here:

http://blog.swatteksystems.com/whats-that/archive/2010/03/07/tether-huaw...

But that site was down, so I got it from Google cache here:

First, install usb_modeswitcher:

sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitcher

Then, I have (for now) left in place the Android Rules explained elsewhere on this site.

File /etc/modules has this before starting:


# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

lp
rtc

We'll do the following to add something else to that file:

sudo echo "option" >> /etc/modules


sudo gedit /etc/rc.local, and add before exit 0:

echo '12d1 1031' > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
