Running that exe will do you no good (unless your acer has xp on it) what we need to determine is what kernel version you are running. If you don't know how to find that information from the desktop do the following:

Click My Documents, under the Files Tab Select File--> Terminal. Now type: uname -r and post the result to this thread.

The kernel version you are running should already support that modem. We need to check for the presence of two files, make sure the modem is plugged into the usb before continuing. In terminal type: ls -ls /dev the listing may be quite long. Use the scroll bar to the right and look for these two files: ttyUSB0 & ttyUSB1. Then type: lsusb an post that output here to this thread.

It would seem you need to also download a GNU/Linux driver from vodafone, see here: http://uberhack.net/2008/08/27/acer-...0-hdspa-modem/

I've downloaded the driver and is now saved in my disk:///downloads, how do I perform the following steps in terminal-
Change directory to Download
Install driver by typing
sudo -sf vodafone-mobile-connect-card-driver-for-linux-2.0.beta3-ALL-i386-installer.run
When installer prompts for valid users type
root user
Restart computer and plug in the HDSPA modem
Start the program (ALT+F2 -> vodafone-mobile-connect-card-driver-for-linux)
Presto.

Type: cd downloads press enter

Now type: chmod +x vodafone-mobile-connect-card-driver-for-linux-2.0.beta3-ALL-i386-installer.run and press enter (this is to make the file executable)

Now type: sudo -sf vodafone-mobile-connect-card-driver-for-linux-2.0.beta3-ALL-i386-installer.run (this will start the install) and press enter.

Then follow the rest of the instructions.
