How to connect to mobile broadband without desktop client

hey there. ive got the vim4 running the most recent version of ubuntu

wondering if theres a way to turn on the mobile broadband from the command line. as of now i have to log in over remote desktop and click it on in the wifi settings

im thinking of doing an ubuntu server instillation in stead of ubuntu gnome but i still need access to the 4g chip and mobile broadband

You should be able to setup a command line connection through the nmtui utility.

this works great! exactly what i was looking for. any idea how to configure it to turn on when the system boots up?

Yes… in that entry there should have been a “[X] Automatically connect” section at the bottom. If that selected it should connect when the system boots as long as NetworkManager is properly starting all devices.
