installing Tata Photon on Ubuntu

I just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 12.04 Beta and connected my photon device to the syste. Oops , I cant see any USB device detected to the system. Now what I had to do is just google a little. After googling I found the solution that the way of connecting to the mobile broadband is totally changed in 12.04. Here are the steps to connect to your device:
1. Click on network icon and goto edit connections.
2. Goto Mobile Broadband and click on Add
3. This will auto detect the device. Follow the steps according the screens.
After completing the steps, again goto network icon and try to connect to the device.
If ur device is not auto detected, try following
sudo usb_modeswitch -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/12d1:1446
