ModemManager plug-and-play

I installed ModemManager to be able to connect to internet using my USB 3G dongle.

I remember in Ubuntu I could just plug it in. Set it up and go. In Fedora I have to 'sudo modemmanger' and then it takes time to to detect & configure.

How do I make it plug-and-play like in Fedora too? Make the ModemManager service run at boot, may be? How?

I installed ModemManager on Fedora to be able to connect my USB 3G Dongle. I remember in Ubuntu I could just plug it in, it would detect and I could just connect from the 'Network' setup in the settings menu.

Can I make ModemManager do all its detecting and configuring dynamically like that? Does that require me to make it launch at statup? It requires sudo.

There is no need to install any softwares, it should work out of box. Just start the modem manager service as state by hello from the post below. Connect your modem. Give it few seconds and then "mobile broadband" should appear in the right corner drop down menu. Create a profile for your network operator.

I think:

systemctl enable ModemManager.service

should do it
