I have the same as nickoe (Available USB options are: 1. file 2. matches)

After debugging sakis3g, I get this:

[16675] [18:21:15] [usb_connected_devices] Fetching connected USB devices by using "/sys/bus/usb/devices".
[16675] [18:21:15] [usb_connected_devices] Connected USB devices are:

My modem is

sakis3g non working (Segmentation Fault) because Zenity has a bug:

Fix Zenity or install from AUR zenity-gtk2

@nickoe: Your modem probably has multiple modes, eg a flashdrive mode which contains setup software for Windows/Mac. I had to install usb_modeswitch as per then unplug/replug for it to be properly picked up.

nickoe, sorry for late answer, haven't been around lately. Anyway, I had the exact same problem (I don't know what caused it) but I solved it by specifying CUSTOM_TTY in the configuration file; this is how mine looks like:


When you run sakis3g you can specify on the command line as well:

sakis3g 'OTHER=CUSTOM_TTY CUSTOM_TTY="/dev/ttyUSB0"'

Or you can just run it interactively and specify it there:

sakis3g --interactive
