[SOLVED] 3ginfo 3g / 4g status monitor

I have a TP-Link archer MR200 which I have just upgraded to OpenWrt 18.06.4 and was wanting to monitor the status of my 4g signal. I used to use 3ginfo but I downloaded it and installed it manually before from a link that no longer exists on the http://eko.one.pl/?p=openwrt-3ginfo website.
3ginfo does not seem to be in the opg packages for OpenWrt 18.06.4 so, does anyone here know how I can install it?

Bad thesis. 3ginfo is still in my repo, download and install it manually: https://dl.eko.one.pl/openwrt-19.07/packages/mips_24kc/base/

Thanks for the link cezary
I have installed using the following commands

opkg install comgt
opkg install http://dl.eko.one.pl/openwrt-19.07/packages/mips_24kc/base/3ginfo-text_20190418_all.ipk
opkg install http://dl.eko.one.pl/openwrt-19.07/packages/mips_24kc/base/3ginfo_20190418_all.ipk
uci set 3ginfo.@3ginfo[0].device=/dev/ttyUSB1
uci commit 3ginfo
uci set 3ginfo.@3ginfo[0].language=en
/etc/init.d/3ginfo restart

However I get

File missing: /usr/share/3ginfo/msg.dat.e

What am I missing?

Probably you set uci set 3ginfo.@3ginfo[0].language=e (without n)
