@pouar Would you mind sharing how you made the systemd service? I've tried to research it and make my own, but haven't been successful so far. Thanks if you can help out with that.

@theonewho I haven't really have figured how to do that either so I just created my own systemd servce that executes a script that pretty much does that

Found out upstream now has a Arch Linux package on their website, so I'm not sure if this is still needed so I'm disowning it

On the mobile-stream website, it says there are additional steps after installing the package. It says "Arch Linux, Manjaro: For i686/x86_64 enable and start the "dhcpcd@tap-easytether.service".

I'm able to enable the service, but starting it fails with 'dependency'. I have no idea what that means.

I can get online by doing 'sudo easytether-usb' and then 'sudo dhcpcd'. What I'm trying to do is make it so that it goes online automatically once the system is booted or if I unplug/plug in the phone. I think that's what the service is supposed to do. And that's how it worked in Linux Mint.

Any ideas?

Installing this on 64-bit AMD gives this error :

@hagabaka yeah, that was in the PKGBUILD before I adopted it and never got around to fix it, but it's fixed now.

This builds an empty package for me, because it puts files directly in pkg/, while makepkg expects them in pkg/easytether-bin. "../pkg" should be replaced with "$pkgdir" in the the package function:

cd $srcdir
cp -R ./$_extglob $pkgdir
mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr
mv $pkgdir/lib $pkgdir/usr/
