You're welcome. Let me know if it works - don't leave me hanging!

Oh, and I missed another Ubuntu-specific thing. Instead of
16. Go to System>Administration>Networking, use K Menu -> System Settings -> Network Connections. Actually, you probably won't even need to do steps 16-22, but you might need to if it doesn't automatically work.

Sumguy I have opened Synaptic Manager and eagle isn't listed. It goes from dnsutils to finger, gaim, gaim-data etc. nothing even starting with an E. I am using Xubuntu by the way (I dumped Kubuntu - Too many 'Ks'). JimBass that's why I asked if there was a difference between any of the Linux systems in case some had more packages built in. At the moment the only way I can download anything is through my Windows system and that can't see Linux files can it ?!!
If at first you don't succeed - DENY EVERYTHING.

Those packages are probably on the cd. I don't quite remember, but if you haven't already type in a terminal
Code:
sudo apt-cdrom add
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install eagle-usb-data eagle-usb-modules-source eagle-usb-utils
If they aren't on the cd, you'll need to download them on your Windows computer and transfer them over to the Xubuntu computer. Windows can definately 'see' the files, it just can't do anything with them. You can get them here:
http://packages.ubuntulinux.org/edgy/net/eagle-usb-data
http://packages.ubuntulinux.org/edgy...agle-usb-utils
http://packages.ubuntulinux.org/edgy...modules-source
You need to click on the 'all' or 'i386' links there, and go to a terminal and type
Code:
sudo dpkg -i eagle*.deb
to install them. I hope this works, and I'm sorry I keep getting confused!

Sumguy I am completely LOST. I checked the links but they just took me back to a page saying packages not available. I have downloaded (from Windows) a compressed Linux file direct from the Sagem site called Fast8x0_3-0-6.tgz. I copied this onto a flashdrive opened it in File Manager (Xubuntu) and now it wants to know where to extract the files to! OK where to? and then what? This certainly ain't Plug & Pray.
I did the cdrom thing in Terminal but it said:
Package eagle-usb-modules is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only availablefrom another source
E: Package eagle-usb-modules has no installation candidate
It's my birthday today and I think I may be getting too old for all these shinanigins, but it would be bostin' to get something to actually work!!

I really recommend that instead of installing it the hard way (with the .tgz archive) you use the debs. Let me clarify: you can get the .deb files specifically at these pages (select a European mirror: If one doesn't work, just choose another.)
http://packages.ubuntulinux.org/cgi-...=all&type=main
http://packages.ubuntulinux.org/cgi-...=all&type=main
http://packages.ubuntulinux.org/cgi-...=all&type=main
Why I didn't just link to these pages in the first place is a mystery to me.

Oh crikey sumguy I made a temp folder in my home folder/path whatever and extracted the files to there. Then I opened Synaptic and it picked up some eagle stuff along with other things. So I just selected them all for installing and it's been doing that for about at least half an hour now.
What Have I done??
Well now I filled in what I could where it said details and it seems to have installed
eagle-usb-data
eagle-usb-utils
Ok something has happened.

So did it work? I admit this problem is way beyond my abilities, but I've been following this...

vinaymaurya, please start your own thread. Your problem is unrelated and we're trying to help MyDogAndMe.

If you want to make sure they're installed, type:
Code:
sudo aptitude show eagle-usb-data
and
Code:
sudo aptitude show eagle-usb-ultils.
In that text, you'll see either Installed: No or Installed: yes.

If it didn't work, and if possible, give us the output you got when you tried to install them.

OK Sumguy, sorry it took so long to get back, but I've been a bit rough lately with flu. Any road up here's the output for sudo----data

Description: Userspace tools for Eagle USB ADSL modems
This package provides the userspace tools needed to use the USB ADSL modems
featuring the Eagle chipset. This includes the Sagem F@st 800 modem.

You'll need a kernel module to be able to use these tools. Such a kernel
module can be semi-automatically compiled and installed if you install the
eagle-usb-modules-source package and follow the instructions in
/usr/share/doc/eagle-usb-utils/README.Debian.

If anyone knows what the hell all that means they deserve a medal.
The modem still isn't working anyway, and besides that I have got a problem with Xubuntu on start up. I have to keep powering down a few times before it loads the OS properly, yes it CRASHES. I didn't seem to have that problem with Kubuntu, so do you think Ubuntu would be more stable if I installed that instead of Xubuntu.

IGF if it's beyond me as well, but it certainly is all very interesting!!

That's not right at all. Can you describe the crash more? Did it happen after you first installed Xubuntu? I suppose a reinstall is the easiest way to get rid of it, but something like that doesn't have much to do with which desktop you're using so I don't see how switching to Ubuntu would help more.

About the modem, do a:
Code:
cat /usr/share/doc/eagle-usb-utils/README.Debian
and paste the results. Perhaps I can translate for you.

I hope you're feeling better, the flu is no fun.

Hello sumguy. Thanks for that but I still feel a bit groggy. As for Xubuntu crashing at start up, it doesn't do it every time. What seems to happen is, I type my username and password in then it goes away and thinks about it and comes up with the user name and password box again. So I fill it in again and then it just doesn't load the desktop. I found the only way round it, is to completely power off and boot up again, sometimes for the third time.
OK this is the output for README.debian.

Eagle-usb packages for Debian
==============================

This source package gives three binary packages:

- eagle-usb-utils contains the userspace tools used to manipulate the modem, as
well as some scripts to set up the connection;

- eagle-usb-data contains the DSP codes for the modem;

- eagle-usb-modules-source contains the source for the kernel module,
the kernel-space part of the driver, which is required for
the modem to be usable.

There are (at least) two ways of having this kernel module working.

- The Debian way (with module-assistant): install the "module-assistant"
package and the kernel-headers-* package corresponding to the kernel
version you want to use, then run the following commands:

# module-assistant prepare # May not be needed
# module-assistant get eagle-usb
# module-assistant build eagle-usb

you should now have an eagle-usb-modules-<version>.deb file in
/usr/src, which you can install with dpkg -i to get the modules
installed.

-The "by hand" way: if you prefer handling your kernel by hand, then
you're supposed to know what to do with eagle-usb-modules-source and I
won't bother you any longer. It is for you only that there is no
dependency on eagle-usb-modules (only a recommendation) :-)

There also used to be a third way, using kernel-package. It's been
removed (module-assistant becoming the standard way to build modules
in Debian). For reference, here's the text that used to be above
(will probably be removed in some future version):
,----
The Debian way (with kernel-package): if you compile this kernel
module using the standard Debian tools to manage packaged kernels
(which involves using the package named "kernel-package"), you'll get
a package named eagle-usb-modules-#KVERS#, where #KVERS# is the
version number of the kernel package you are compiling. read the
documentation for kernel-package to know about compiling kernel
modules that way.

The eagle-usb-modules-#KVERS# "provide" eagle-usb-modules virtual package.

The eagle-usb-utils depends on eagle-usb-data.
It only recommends eagle-usb-modules virtual package for the user
who install driver "by hand" way.
Pay attention to kernel version numbers and you'll be fine.

This has got to be a wind up right? This bloke must be having a larf.
I think I'll have to go and have a lie down. I only wanted to install
a ruddy modem for crying out loud.
I think I'll take up knitting or eggshell painting or even aligator wrestling,
you know, something less stressful!

Uh oh, you really have me stumped. It sounds like a problem with GDM, the login manager. Maybe when you have an internet connection you can try to reinstall it.

I'll sum up the 'Debian way' they listed:
Code:
sudo -s
aptitude install module-assistant
aptitude install kernel-headers-* (The star depends on which kernel you're using. Type 'uname -r' to find out.)
module-assistant prepare
module-assistant get eagle-usb
module-assistant build eagle-usb
dpkg -i /usr/src/eagle-usb-modules-*.deb (This time I really do mean the *, type it like that)
Hopefully that helps. I know it's an awful lot, I've never seen a modem quite like yours.

Even though I didn't like Kubuntu it never had any problems while I was trying it out.
Got stuck at the first line. I typed in aptitude install module-assistant
The reply was:

Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "module-assistant"

'module-assistant' isn't on the cd either, you'll need to bring it over from Windows. The kernel-headers should be there, though.
Edit: Oh, and you can get module-assistant here:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/d...=all&type=main
