    install deb file

    22.04, double clicking (easytether_0.8.9_amd64.deb) produces a greyed-out install button, install with, also no luck, terminal, says installed but "dependecy problems". doing a search for dgebi produces an install button, but an apparent error: "too few items" and dgebi is not available to install (easytether), really

    This deb package is my only option to get on the internet, to finish updating 22.04. my little usb-wifi barely downloaded the preinstall updates, it seems to need a driver update cause its to slow, so im back to easytether

          Where did you download the package from? If not here http://www.mobile-stream.com/easytether/drivers.html (download the one for Ubuntu 20.04/mint 20) If you got it somewhere else you may have gotten an older version which will not work with newer versions of Kubuntu. Also most modern phones no longer need this package but can be tether with apps on the phone If it's and android version. This page is a little old now but still should give good advise. https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to...hone-in-linux/
          Good luck

            As the OP uses Kubuntu 22.04 (not 20.04) even the .deb from the aforementioned site could be too old/incompatible. It is meant for (K)ubuntu 20.04 / Mint 20 and/or Debian 10!
            This could be the main problem.

              Yep I agree but that is the newest one I could find and may work.

                  GreyGeek, yes, and here is the result:

                  wyse5010@wyse5010:~$ cd ~/Desktop
                  wyse5010@wyse5010:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i easytether_0.8.9_amd64.deb
                  [sudo] password for wyse5010:

                  Unpacking easytether (0.8.9) over (0.8.9) ...
                  dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of easytether:
                  easytether depends on libssl1.1 (>= 1.1.0); however:
                  Package libssl1.1 is not installed.

                  dpkg: error processing package easytether (--install):

                  im keying on "libssl1.1", so i downloaded the deb file:
                  libssl1.1_1.1.1-1ubuntu2.1~18.04.20_amd64.deb

                  Question: will installing this through terminal fix all my problems or make them worse?​

                    well installing the libssl.....deb file seemed to work, my phone asked for permission like it should , but then no internet

                    so i found this

                    https://github.com/hrkfdn/ncspot/issues/812

                    last entry on the page:

                    davidparks21 commented on May 22
                    ... "it appears that the easytether app just needs to update support for libssl3"

                    so am i correct in assuming this is all on the folks over at easytether?

                        Really.
                        It has always been that way. The difference is that Microsoft would keep security holes secret, even threatening security researchers with lawsuits if they reported their findings to anyone other than Microsoft, and then release knowledge of the security hole and the patch on the same day, and then claim zero day patching. Some holes were known by MS for months and years and nothing was done about them.

                        Linux security began with a public announcement of a security hole, usually within 24 hours of finding it, and a proof of concept script or executable that people could see if their system was a problem. That allowed Linux users to take security measures until the patch to fix the security hole was released. Such patches usually took a few days at the most.

                        Why the difference? Microsoft had an income stream to protect. Linux has a reputation to protect.
