Ah.. OK, sorry for the false assumption, I just checked with my Xubuntu
install, although I'm currently using Kiwionline for dialup not Paradise.
Gnome-ppp worked fine but only with the "ignore terminal strings - stupid
mode" box ticked. Gkdial also connected ok but the only indication it was
connected was the button changed to "Disconnect" the timer didn't seem to
get updated. Did you check the user privilages to make sure both "use serial
devices" and "use tools that dial out" are selected.

Leith, are you in the Wellington area? (Not sure what difference it makes,
but the number shown in the screenshot is for "outside the Wellington area")

Wellington number is 086727235
