Mint should understand that command as is (with the typos fixed that is). Have you tried running it? And if so, what is Mint doing or not doing? Error messages would be very helpful. You could also try a modprobe variation of that command:
modprobe usbserial vendor=0x16d8 product=0x6280
Of course one of the questions is why you would need the vendor and product information. If you're working off of some different advice, please post a link.
I don't remember where I got the command from - it was during hours of trawling about trying to get friend's new telstra turbo wireless modem to be seen by just-installed Mint.
I ran it, not noticing the space in it - I don't spot any other typos, but I wouldn't know for sure, not familiar enough. Just copying and pasting what I read from some forum
I think terminal said command not found.
But it.s useful to know that it looks like acceptable Mint command, and will get back to friend and try again.
The only other real potential gotcha is the backtick (`) around the uname -r command. Make sure you type a backtick and not an apostrophe. The backtick causes the command in between them to be evaluated, where an apostrophe won't.
