Problem while creating New Connection

Hi all,

how are you?

I am on pclinux KDE. When I try to create a new Internet connection
from Network Centre, I get the message "/dev/ttyACM not found".

I checked and there is a file /dev/ttyACM0 when I connect my phone.
I cannot proceed to create a connection.

Kindly help me with this issue.

What was the exact command you used that elicited this response? If you used /dev/ttyACM, then replace that with /dev/ttyACM0 in your command.
