Issues With Electrum-LTC Not Connected

I am running Ubuntu Linux, I downloaded the Electrum Litcoin wallet. When I launch it is says Not Connected. I am using the standard wallet, with auto connect server. I is trying to do something, since it takes away all my bandwidth. I have a Slow connection so that is why I was wanting to use Electrum, my Electrum BTC wallet works fine…

did you download the latest version of electrum? you may try the older portable version as well…they have 3 versions on their site available for download

The only one I seen was on this page

sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools python3-pyqt5 python3-pip python3-dev libssl-dev
sudo pip3 install
