Huawei Surf Stick on iBook G4 running Ubuntu 10.04

The Huawei E220/E270 stick I got from my mobile provider is working on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx out-of-the-box.

The mobile provider was pre-configured in the provider database of the Network Manager and there was no need for a special setup of the USB stick.

The latter was necessary on my Dell notebook (see usb-modeswitch), but not here on the PowerPC architecture in the iBook G4.
