folder of modem-manager. And I didn't see modem-manager exe file be generated
when I do make install networkmanager.  Or we need to download a separate packet
to build and install modem-manager?Also, if I want to set modem in linux
terminal instead of through graphic applet, how can I do it? Currently, I put
"org.freedesktop.ModemManager.service" under /usr/share/dbus-1/system-service
and "org.freedesktop.ModemManager.conf" under /etc/dbus-1/system.d. In addition,
I put a keyfile TestMode under /etc/NetworkManager/system-connection. However, I
am still not able to make the modem run. Do I miss something? thanks a lot for
the helpXiaohong

I have exactly the opposite problem: the Network Manager doesn't start the Modem

I have the pertinent files: "org.freedesktop.ModemManager.service" under
/usr/share/dbus-1/system-service and "org.freedesktop.ModemManager.conf" under
And also an apropriate configuration for the connection under
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connection (it works when I start it manually).

Why does my NM not start my MM?

Thank you,
