USB ADSL Modem Manager: Annoying window

Filed under
Software

Hi

I am a user of Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic. I have a SpeedTouch 330 USB ADSL Modem
I downloaded and installed the file usbadslmodemmanager_0.5.8_i386.deb which I found on http://www.squeezedonkey.com/svn/linux/trunk/releases/ubuntu/32-bit%20i386/.
I filled in my acces data to connect my provider.
I changed the permissions of pppd:
sudo chmod 755 /usr/sbin/pppd.

Now every time after I start up linux and logged in a window usually appears:
“Enter your password to perform administrative tasks”
“The application 'lsusb -vvv' lets you modify essential parts of your system”
“Password [ ]
After I filled in my password of my username Joris I can connect to internet.
Sometimes the window doesn't appear and then I can't start the USB ADSL Modem Manager.

How can I make it so that this window doen't appear anymore?
Why does this ask to my password? Is this a problem with permissions? Let me know something.
With thanks.

Joris V. H.

P.S. I live in Belgium and I speak Dutch. So my English is not very good.

Migrating to Linux: Network and System Settings

Linux gives you a lot of control over network and system settings. On your desktop, Linux lets you tweak just about anything on the system. Most of these settings are exposed in plain text files under the /etc directory. Here I describe some of the most common settings you’ll use on your desktop Linux system. A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
