Question Tethering app that will work on Lubuntu


I downloaded easy tether on my keocera hydro (the old one) and when I tried to open the install package on my lubuntu box, the notification said i had the wrong architecture (amd64), and that is the processor I have. I tried to install clockworkmod, but my phone isn't supported. Anybody know an app that will work on my LINUX LUBUNTU box? I use pda net on my windows 7 laptop (paid full version) and it works great.

Hi,

easytether should work.

You may have a 64 bit processor, but are you running a 64 bit OS?

What is the output of "uname -a"?

Debian 7 64bit worked out of the box on a usb hotspot for me. It is a samsung.

Not sure what is saying that problem. Easy tether shouldn't affect linux, just the android. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1941555

If you say that the phone works in windows then I'd have to assume it should be possible to work in linux.

Boot up a live debian maybe and plug in phone. Can we assume it connects usb?

Hi. Thankx for the reply. After you asked, I checked. I assumed I installed a 64 bit os. My brother actually burned a disk from an iso I downloaded. I downloaded some for a 32 bit box I have, then ran across a 64 bit box, and downloaded some of those as well. Anyway, it's possible he burned one of the 32's, so here's what info says: Kernell 3.13.0-32-generic, so I guess that might be why the 64 easytether didn't work. OOps It also says UBUNTU 14.04 I686 2XAMD Athlon 64x2 duel core processor 4000+. Will this ubuntu 32 work as well as the 64? It seems to, lol. I'm new to LINUX. Totally different animal. I'll try downloading the easytether for the 32.

Hi jefro, Thankx for your reply.
You wrote this...

"If you say that the phone works in windows then I'd have to assume it should be possible to work in linux".

Just curious. Are you saying the pdanet I'm using on the windows 7 laptop should also work on the Linux system? I think evo hit the nail on the head. I have a 64 bit duel core athlon, but installed a 32 os. OOps I'm going to try an easytether 32. I also clicked on the connection icon and saw where to configure mobile. I'm going to tinker with that too. I would really like to get the pdanet going on the linux box.

Ok, you are running 32 bit.

For most things it will be fine.

Pdanet is a way to tether your phone. You set proxy settings for these types of apps in windows. As far as I know you don't install anything in windows to get pdanet to work. You just set to use phone as gateway.

I however didn't use any app at all. My hotspot (which is a stripped down phone) was plugged in and Debian said a hotspot was available. I might assume that your phone when set to tether ought to do the same. I have used wifi for all this too.
