MobileLink Qualcomm With Smartfren SIM Card at Linux Mint /Ubuntu

WHEN I PLUGGED MY MODEM DID NOT RECOGNIZE AS MODEM.
Mobilelink-Qualcomm CDMA/EVDO modem is not automatically detected by Linux Mint or Ubuntu as a modem. So when you will connect it to the internet it needs to detect as modem first. This modem is detected as Usb Mass Storage Qualcomm.

CHECK USB
Open your TERMINAL....
Enter to super user with type this code

$ su

then enter and give your password and enter once again. Type code

#lsusb

then enter and you will see something like this (below)

Bus 002 Device 008: ID 05c6:1000 Qualcomm, Inc. Mass Storage Device
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
.............................................................


Qualcomm Mass Storage Device,.... modem has not been recognizing till here.
You can remove Usb Storage in order to change it into modem/usb serial.

#rmmod usb_storage

If it not work you can use command below;

to show where the qualcomm storage device as CD-ROM, type

#dmesg|grep "CD-ROM"

the you will see kind like this below:

[ 1.119622] scsi 1:0:0:0: CD-ROM HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 1.02 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5

with rmmod is not working, so you can eject it with eject command. And CD-ROM of Qualcomm MMC storage is CD-ROM sr1, so you can eject it.

#sudo eject /dev/sr1

After ejected you will see qualcomm storage by show USB device.

#lsusb

Qualcomm storage now has been ejected and device is only USB.

You have to know that ID of qualcomm is 19f5 as vendor
and the product is 9909.

Last action on terminal is to make the modem detected.
