Have you installed the gobi_loader program, the udev rules, and the firmware necessary to load the gobi's firmware?

Comment 2 Dan 2010-05-22 03:58:23 UTC
I now have a working Qualcom modem in F13, just needed the gobi_loader and firmware. Now works like it should, and I'll now close this bug report.
