Linux already contains all the necessary generic drivers that are required by most of the devices out there. This is possible because Linux is powered by a huge community of open source developers (which surprisingly nowadays include Microsoft too.) It does not mean that you an not install your own drivers, you most certainly can.

If you run lsusb terminal command, you will see what chip is installed in your dongle. Your device is 05c6:6001 Qualcomm, Inc. In most cases Linux identifies the dongle by the chip code 12d1:1506. Some of devices are implicitly defined in the option kernel module by vendor and product ids, but some are identified by some other parameters. Your device ...

The default kernel driver is weak and gets a range of maybe 2-5 meters with a clear line of sight to the AP. I have this card and it works great when you use the newer firmware from realtek. The original new firmware won't build properly on kernels >=3.10 however, patched versions are available from github. Here are the instructions: 12.04 & 14.04+: ...

The output of adb indicates it doesn't have permissions to do what it's trying to do. In this case list all connected devices. To fix it you should do adb kill-server followed by sudo adb devices Basically you're killing the adb server and then starting it with sudo privileges to access usb devices.

Linux (and therefore Ubuntu) works with "generic" devices. "Generic" means 1 module (A.k.a. "driver") that supports many devices. Not every manufacturer of these dongles have their own chip inside these dongles. They tend to purchase these in large quantities from the same manufacturer so internally they are identical to other dongles using the same chip. ...

I have identical behaviour with my 3G dongle. Ubuntu has support already built-in while Windows OS doesn't. When you plug in the dongle in Windows the OS installs the drivers which is on the dongle automatically.

Are the devices being created at boot time? Yes. So, if I ask, which list do I update to cause /dev/sr1 created at boot time? makedev DESCRIPTION MAKEDEV is a script that will create the devices in /dev used to interface with drivers in the kernel. Note that programs giving the error ``ENOENT: No such file or ...

You can use the mmcli command line client of Ubuntu's default ModemManager to send a USSD code and get the reply: Start by listing your modems: mmcli -L. This will show a modem device path like /org/freedesktop/ModemManager1/Modem/0. The number at the end is the modem index, remember it. Enable the modem (assuming your modem index is 0): mmcli -m 0 -e Send ...

You can use AT commands directly to query your balance via USSD. For that, use any serial terminal program that lets you communicate with your modem directly (putty, minicom etc.). I chose atinout because it integrated nicely with the command line. First you install it: sudo apt-get install ruby-ronn; git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/atinout/code atinout; ...

You can use the Linux command line tool gsm-ussd to send USSD codes, get answers, and even navigate USSD menus (though that was not stable / usable for me). For detailed installation and configuration instructions see here. The version 0.4 Debian package offered there for installation is the latest dev branch version. If the USSD code to get your balance ...

You can fix it this way. Run in terminal sudo -H gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/15-zte-MF100.rules Editor will open. Paste there this text SUBSYSTEM=="usb",SYSFS{idProduct}=="0039",SYSFS{idVendor}=="19d2",RUN+="/lib/udev/modem-modeswitch --vendor 0x12d1 --product 0x1446 --type option-zerocd" Save the file, reboot the computer and plugin the modem. It should ...

You can use the command-line utility gammu for this purpose. If the USSD code to get your balance is (say) *901#, you would execute: gammu getussd "*901#" For installation and configuration instructions and more details, see here.
