Huawei E303C 3G modem device - Mobile partner unable to start, calling, ussd issue


I have installed the NDIS drivers needed successfully, and got connected too using wvdial and Ubuntu's network manager, device is detected everytime whever plugged in.

The problem i faced is i can't make a call or recieve a call, for doing so i need mobile partner that i can see in driver installation directory, i am not able to start it. what i've tried as per readme file so far is,

Code:
Readme file

1.Installatiion
  a. To install the Linux Driver tool only:
     call the following command in the installation directory:
		./install $PATH         (The parameter "PATH" is where the driver directory is)
     And the can copy usbmod file to /sbin/
                 copy startMobilePartner file to /sbin/
                 copy 10-Huawei-Datacard.rules file to /etc/udev/rules.d/
                 register the auto run settengs into the current system.
     To make the settings applied, you must restart the system.
  b. To integrated the Linux Driver tool into the third dashboard application:
     call "install norestart" in the installation tool of the third dashboard application. 
     This call scheme will disable the restarting function in the tool installation.
     And after the third dashboard application installed, its installation tool must restart the current system.
 
 2. To inquire about the version of the Linux Driver tool,
    call HWActivator --version.

 3. The current version is : Linux Driver 4.19.07.00

Code:
tousif@ubuntu:~#chmod +x ./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop
tousif@ubuntu:~#tousif@ubuntu:~#./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop
tousif@ubuntu:~#./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop
./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop: line 1: [Desktop: command not found
./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop: line 4: AutoRun: command not found
./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop: line 5: AutoRun: command not found
./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop: line 6: +: command not found
./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop: line 13: X-KDE-SubstituteUID=false: command not found
./HuaweiAutoStart.desktop: line 14: X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true: command not found
how to register the auto run settengs into the current system? i am stuck here help me out. thanks

their are other file called runactivator, HWActivator

what i did next is,

Code:
tousif@ubuntu:~#sudo ./HWActivator 
Get CDC status failed or current port state is cdc specs
modprobe: FATAL: Module hw_cdc_driver not found in directory /lib/modules/4.4.0-80-generic
Code:
tousif@ubuntu:~#sudo chmod +x ./runhwactivator 
tousif@ubuntu:~#sudo ./runhwactivator
Usage: ./runhwactivator {start|stop|restart|force-reload|reload}
tousif@ubuntu:~#sudo ./runhwactivator start
Starting HWActivator  *   [done]
Code:
tousif@ubuntu:~#sudo ./startMobilePartner 
grep: /root/Desktop/*.desktop: No such file or directory
use /etc/datacard_config
grep: /etc/datacard_config: No such file or directory
grep: /etc/datacard_config: No such file or directory
DISPLAY=:0
XAUTHLOCALNAME=tousif-System-Product-Name
MOBILE_EXEC=
ISRUNNING=
Code:
tousif@ubuntu:~#sudo ./skeleton 
CURPATH/driver/HWActivator not installed
Code:
tousif@ubuntu:~#sudo ./HWActivator --version
HWActivator tool version : Linux Driver 4.19.07.00
at the end i am not able to run mobile partner or can't see any GUI running for it !? guide me to get it working !

Kindly note i am using Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and the device Huawei E303C is detected and recongnized by system and i am able to connect to internet but i want to make a call using Mobile Partner, USSD checks and other fuctions i can't use.

Thanks again.

" i can't make a call or recieve a call,"

Not sure how you are trying to use a 3G modem to make calls.
Not sure why you needed ndiswrapper either. Pretty sure it was or is supported in linux.

Could be a usb 3 issue. https://vctechblog.wordpress.com/201...13-10-usb-3-0/
"sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install wvdial
sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch usb-modeswitch-data
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade"

Dupe of post https://askubuntu.com/questions/9267...no-gui-calling

Did you have to install ndiswrapper because there was no other way to connect to the net?
Just asking; it happened to me.

Is Mobile Partner an application for an Android phone?

You mentioned USSD checks that is code for Android phones if I'm not mistaken.
Are you getting a ussd error?

Try these links.

I didn't see the E303c here in the Debian WiKi.
https://wiki.debian.org/Modem/3G

Maybe the other searches will help.

Good luck:-
