By now it's probably best if I just show you how to find packages you need to install to meet dependencies if they aren't on the CD. Just go to this page to search for the package:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/
Then when you're at that package's page, click on either 'i386' or 'All' at the bottom (next to list all files) and choose a mirror. Your download should begin. Here's the page for debconf-utils:

Ah, a thread with this many replies, is like a bad car accident, you just can't help but look..

I'd follow sumguy's links above, to get your internet connection going, then once that works, start using the repositories, its a 100x easier.

Good luck

Yes sumguy that was going to be my next question, where do you find the dependencies. IGF before my head goes through the screen in this smash (monitor screen not car screen) where do you find repositories?
I think if I ever manage to get this bloody modem to work I am either going to write a book on it or start a new thread to tell anyone else what steps I took to get there(car crashes excluded) with the help of yourself, sumguy and everyone.
OK debconf-utils installed alright, I tried to install debhelper again and got another error message in terminal:
dpkg: regarding .../debhelper_4.9.5ubuntu1_all.deb containing debhelper:
python-central conflicts with debhelper (<< 5.0.37.ubuntu2)
debhelper (version 4.9.5ubuntu1) is to be installed.
dpkg: error processing /home/colin/Desktop/debhelper_4.9.5ubuntu1_all.deb (--install):
conflicting packages - not installing debhelper
This is a real user friendly operating system. I think I am beginning to get the message if you're not an absolute expert in Linux systems, don't ever bother trying to mess with this stuff.

That error was actually my fault - I pointed you to the wrong page, giving you a link to a really old version for an old version of Ubuntu. Try again here:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/d...=all&type=main
I really need to be more careful in the future.

I installed that version too sumguy, but it still came back with exactly the same error message. It's not the debhelper package that's the problem is it?

Sorry, it is debhelper. I screwed up again. You need this version of debhelper:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/d...=all&type=main

Oh, and I thought of an idea. If you haven't already been doing so, save those .deb files so you can burn them onto a cd or something in the event that you ever need to reinstall in the future. That way you can just move them to a directory, go to that directory, and run 'sudo dpkg -i *.deb' on them.

Well we are getting somewhere Sumguy, all the packages have now installed but it's been so long since I started I can't remember what I am supposed to do now they have installed!!
Yes I have saved all the downloaded files on my memory stick and on my old PC. By the way, will these packages work on any Linux variant or are they specific to Xubuntu (xcfe).

Now that you have those packages installed, you still need to go through a few more steps to get it set up. I dug up the rest of the tutorial. Continue here:
Quote:
6.5 Plug in your modem.
7. Go to Applications>System Tools>Root Terminal. (Don't do what I did the first four times I tried this and go to Applications>System Tools>Terminal. You need to be in root to make it work.)
8. At the prompt type in 'eagleconfig'. This will give you a list of options for different ISPs. You'll see Tiscali at the bottom as 'UK01'
9. Type in 'UK01'
10. At the prompt, type in your ISP username
11. At the prompt, type in your ISP password
12. At the prompt about encryption, say 'no'
13. At the prompt about startup on boot, say 'no'
14. You should then get a message saying that configuration was successful.
15. Type 'startadsl'
16. Go to System>Administration>Networking
17. Double click on 'Ethernet connection eth01'
18. Tick the 'This device is configured' box'
19. Change the Connection Settings Configuration drop down from 'Static IP Address' to 'DHCP'
20. Click 'OK'
21. This takes you back to the first dialogue box.
22. Make sure that 'Ethernet connection eth01' is highlighted and then click on 'Activate'
Which ISP are you using again? If it's not Tiscali, make sure to enter the right one after running eagleconfig.
Quote:

They are specifically for Ubuntu Edgy Eft, though you can also use them on Kubuntu or Xubuntu (Which are just barely distinct variants of Ubuntu)

Only part that may confuse him(as it did me for a sec), is to my knowledge, Xubuntu doesn't have a "root terminal" option, so he'll need to use Sudo in a normal terminal window....

ie, step 8... will need to be

Code:
sudo eagleconfig
That will leave him root throughout the config process.

Just think MyDog, once you get this working, you'll be able to use the best part of Xubuntu, Synaptic! I agree with sumguy though, I'd burn those .deb files to a CD/DVD, and make a text file with the instructions he's given you, that way if you ever need to, you'll have no trouble configuring it.

I typed in sudo eagleconfig and it scrolled up a list of countries and codes, I tried UK01 and UK02 but it just comes up with an error message
Error: this is not a correct choice. Exiting...
I tried a few other country/codes just to see and got the same message for all of them. My ISP is called TalkTalk and it uses a British Telecom landline (It's not a British Telecom ISP).

Hmm, this is hard to help you with without having done this before. Can you post the options/codes here?

I think it might be time to give in sumguy. Obviously this modem is never going to work on a Linux system, I don't see there being much chance of getting my printers, scanner, Imation Superdrive etc. to work without an internet connection. 8(

Sorry, this is stumping me too. If found this tutorial, though it assumes you've installed it manually instead of the 'easy' way. Try this anyway:
Quote:
Next you can create a file which will pass a set of parameters every time you start up the ADSL connection. You create it in the folder /etc/ppp/peers/ and you should call it "talktalk". All you need to do is navigate to that folder in File Manager Super User mode, right click on some open space, and select New then Text File and call it talktalk. Now right click on the icon that appears, and open in KWrite. Type in the following, then save:


#put the ADSL user name here. Example is for TalkTalk in UK
user "phonenumber@talktalk.net"

##the two decimal numbers you need to use in the next line are correct for UK only
##they are the VPI/VCI pair should be in your documentation
plugin pppoatm.so 0.38

##IP allocated dynamically be ISP
noipdefault

##other stuff beyond my comprehension but needed
usepeerdns
defaultroute

##network should not authenticate
noauth
From this page:

Sorry.
