I think Ubuntu detects the modem automatically. You just look for the VPN option and you should see mtn nigeria listed there. I dont think there's a way you can install the interface they use for windows on ubuntu so you have to load and choose your plans manually before getting to connect with it, if you still have any problems call me, 08030794302, id be glad to help for FREE

you don't need to do any setup to use it. Just plug in your modem, go to the network manager applet on the upper right corner of your screen (it shld be the first icon. the one that looks like waves , or maybe arrows up n down). click on it and you will see "MTN Default 1" or something like that. Click on that and you will be connected rightaway. The only caveat is that you will not be able to check speeds and data usage but that can be remedied by using this http://ubuntunigeria.wordpress.com/2010/08/18/monitor-your-data-usage-on-ubuntu-easily-using-ntm/. As for topup and plan changes, i'm afraid you'll have to do that from a phone or a windows computer.

Whether for mtn b.i.s,multilinks,etisalat b.i.s,spectrum,tweakwarevpn is the answer, MTN BIS is still on, but with the help of tweakwarevpn, You still have the chance to enjoy your browsing at the very best speed, You can also use tweakwarevpn with multilinks and you don't need to pay for any subscription again, browse at ease...
Tweakwarevpn is back with its new servers, and they are really blazing fast, Contact me for the premium vouchers 08038635701, at 500 naira or MTN Recharge of 750, with instant account activation........... Enjoy it my people..log on to tweakwarevpn.net and register with a username...
