|Re: Ubuntu Linux by 4llerbuntu(m): 6:07am On Jun 19, 2017|
The tethering is done on the device where you installed your VPN app, not on Linux or Windows.
Your search should be how to tether your phones vpn connection.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by jamesbanjo(m): 5:32pm On Jun 19, 2017|
Thanks for d correction,
I have search all over google no prevail...
Pls help me if you've gotten any way out..
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by 4llerbuntu(m): 6:59pm On Jun 19, 2017|
I don't use tweakware etc so I don't know what works, but ask on those sites that share those things, they'll tell you what works
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by jamesbanjo(m): 11:29pm On Jun 19, 2017|
4llerbuntu:i askd the only thing they told me is to use PDNET and its nt available on LINUX
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by 4llerbuntu(m): 6:49am On Jun 20, 2017|
I'll tell you for free that PDANET doesn't do what you want too.
There's apps that you can use to tether the hotspot on a phone after starting a VPN.
Normally, if you use a VPN you can't use the hotspot, but those apps let you do it
So look for VPN tethering apps.
Like I said before, this issue had nothing to do with Linux. Best go ask in phone section
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by jamesbanjo(m): 12:32pm On Jun 21, 2017|
Lemme start ma research ..☺
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by 4llerbuntu(m): 1:26pm On Jun 21, 2017|
please restrict these type of queries to phone section next time
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by rayralph(m): 7:06pm On Jun 24, 2017|
You can use "Easy tether " on linux
There's a workaround for pda.net if you're patient enough.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by rayralph(m): 7:19pm On Jun 24, 2017|
You can successfully tether the vpn connection on your phone to your Linux machine
You need a rooted device
Download Terminal Emulator
download easy tether.apk(if youre tethering via USB)
download pda.net(tethering via WiFi)
Activate your hotspot and connect to your VPN
launch Terminal emulator and on the first line type "su" (without the quotes) and press enter
Copy and paste this to the Terminal Emulator, COPY EXACT FORMAT AS SHOWN
iptables -t filter -F FORWARD
iptables -t nat -F POSTROUTING
iptables -t filter -I FORWARD -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -j MASQUERADE
ip rule add from 192.168.43.0/24 lookup 61
ip route add default dev tun0 scope link table 61
ip route add 192.168.43.0/24 dev wlan0 scope link table 61
ip route add broadcast 255.255.255.255 dev wlan0 scope link table 61

Hello guys, I am a newbie to Linux OS, even though I have used, sparingly, cygwin on window. I recently ordered for this laptop from konga:
Acer ES1 15.6" Celeron QC - 2GB - 500GB - Black, which the merchant said has a Linux OS on it, even though the merchant did not specify the particular Linux that is on the computer.
I don't know if anybody is using the above named computer with Linux?
I have not received the parkage yet but I think the pros in the house will quide me through what to do when I finally lay my hands on the computer.
I am ordering the Linux computer basically because of some scientific models which I have to run only on Linux computer.
The order should reach me sometimes this week.

|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 5:57am On Jul 04, 2017|
You are welcome. Let me know how it goes.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 10:46am On Jul 04, 2017|
I bet it will most likely be Ubuntu. Have fun with it and the good part is you can switch to other distros any time you want to.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by sinkhole: 2:59pm On Jul 04, 2017|
Gargoylesmiles:Thanks guy, the computer finally came and it seems it is pre-loaded with what is called Linpus Linux My head is currently aching seriously now as i could not get anything done with the system.
I don't know how to access the usb nor the cdrom drive, I am currently thinking of installing window alongside the linux! But I just do not want to remove the linux, I will continue trying until I could do something with it
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by 4llerbuntu(m): 9:41am On Jul 05, 2017|
that's a low end device. Linpus is an asian distro for such low end laptops.
if you install windows on that thing you will hate it because the performance will be terrible. why did you buy such a thing ?
anyways, install linuxmint on it. you will be able to cope with that as a newbie
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by blackweaver(m): 11:13am On Jul 05, 2017|
Actually, Linux mint mate or linux mint xfce or xubuntu or ubuntu mate will work
The default ubuntu and the default linux mint might be a bit heavy for your laptop
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by 4llerbuntu(m): 11:29am On Jul 05, 2017|
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by sinkhole: 2:38pm On Jul 05, 2017|
blackweaver:The problem is that I do not know how to do all you just advised; if I could be guided on how to do this I will be so happy!
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 6:13am On Jul 06, 2017|
Your learning starts now...check out this video
Prior to where the video starts you have to download the ISO from https://www.linuxmint.com/release.php?id=29 (select 32 or 64bit as required)
Load ISO unto a USB drive as a bootable drive using Rufus or Rosa image writer.
Change BOIS settings to boot from USB and with the USB plugged in boot your system and install.
Enjoy the process, don't be scared to fail, its a new system so nothing to loose if you wipeout the old OS
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by sinkhole: 10:27am On Jul 06, 2017|
Gargoylesmiles:Thanks my guy! I tried checking and I saw "Cinnamon", "KDE", "MATE" and "Xfce". I think I should go for "Cinnamon" or what do you think? I have also downloaded Rosa image writer but to download the Linuxmint may hold on small as the size is from 1.6G to 1.9G.
I have not watched the video yet due to data
I watched the video (it's not data intensive ), they did the video with Xfce, maybe I should try that also!
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by blackweaver(m): 12:03pm On Jul 06, 2017|
Can your laptop boot from cd? Then get one of the previously mentioned distros, burn to dvd and boot from there. You will get instructions on how to install once you have booted
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by tartarus(m): 3:26pm On Jul 07, 2017|
Been trying to install xubuntu on virtualbox. Using a Windows 7 32bit laptop. When my laptop restarts during installation my whole installation process completely disappears. What could be the problem?
I got the correct iso for 32bit on xubuntu website. Can you help me recommend some light weight os I can use on 32bit?
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by 4llerbuntu(m): 6:15pm On Jul 07, 2017|
For that laptop, use xfce.
