3 ZTE MF112 Dongle help


I have a 3 ZTE MF112 dongle & it's not compatible with linux lite, i have tried downloading usb_modeswitch but that won't install it says:

gcc -o usb_modeswitch usb_modeswitch.c -Wall -l usb
make: gcc: Command not found
make: *** [usb_modeswitch] Error 127

Any suggestions?

You need to install gcc, which is the compiler needed to compile programs. What distro are you using? Next time, please give us more details about your system too. Thanks,

Josh

Which mobile carrier are you with? If it's Vodaphone, you might like to google Betavine to get their open source Mobile Broadband manager Checkout...

Other distros are covered.

Play Bonny!

Ok, so then install what it tells you to? And how are you trying to install gcc?
