Tried to give root permissions to KPPP, now KPPP doesn't exist?
I recently installed Kubuntu onto my computer. I'm happy with it, but I had trouble connecting to the internet. For most settings I was told that there was no modem. I think I found the right settings in the end (something like com1/dev/ttys0, where ttys1-3 would work too), but it would continuously tell me that the modem was busy.
When opening KPPP I kept on getting a message saying that /etc/resolv.conf could not be accessed due to permissions, and I suspect this to be the problem.
I was told to enter the following in order to stop the message:
su root chown root:root $KDEDIR/bin/kppp (in my case that was /usr/bin/kppp) chmod +s $KDEDIR/bin/kppp exit
Did I enter the command lines wrong? How do I access KPPP now? Was the opening message at all relevant as to why I couldn't connect to the internet?
Failing anything else I can reinstall Kubuntu and start fresh, but if there's a solution for now then obviously that would be preferred.
