check the permissions on /usr/bin/kppp
kppp is a program that needs to be root to function, on my computer i see that
i has the setuid permission, so it always runs as root, regardless of who
starts it, maybe that's what you're missing?

-rwsr-xr-- 1 root dialout 546060 2012-04-06 12:39 /usr/bin/kppp

these commands should get you there:

sudo chown root:dialout /usr/bin/kppp
sudo chmod 4754 /usr/bin/kppp

after that, you should be able to run kppp as non-root, and it'll function.

Why do you use kppp? The network manager handles wireless modems just fine

afaik.

Weird. I don't use it myself, but if I push the wrong button on my phone, it
automatically pops up ready to connect to my provider. I got a bit confused
first time it happened :-P

try "kdesudo kppp", that is what I used when I was still using kppp. I
changed the launcher/menu to that command as well.


Otherwise good old cli command wvdial still beats them all..

check if usb-modeswitch is installed. If not install, if it is try
removing it and see what happens. What usbmodem is recognized and which
is not has changed (for me) between upgrades.
