    Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE (Dell Latitude 7490)

    Hello all!

    I am venturing into SUSE Linux and I am liking my stay so far. I have a Dell Latitude 7490 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE card installed. I have a Google Fi data-only SIM inserted and I'm trying to get things to work.

    Now, I had this working somehow yesterday. After putting my device asleep and waking it back up, the device seems to have disappeared and I cannot get it to work again. Sadly, I don't know what exact steps I took to get it working in the first place as I was shotgun-debugging at that point (bad bad practice!).

    I'll give you all some output of what I got.

    From the command 'usb-devices' I was able to see my modem:
    Code:

    I:  If#= 3 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
    Within ModemManager (I have the service enabled via systemctl) I get the following status:
    Code:
    ● ModemManager.service - Modem Manager

    Seems odd! So I checked my installed modem devices with 'mmcli -L':
    Code:
    No modems were found.
    At this point I am a bit at a loss. When I had it working, the modem showed up under mmcli as it should. It's almost like the device went into some low power state that screwed everything up. I have tried plugging in the laptop and rebooting the laptop while plugged in with no success.

    Re: Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE (Dell Latitude 7490)

    Hey I did a thing!

    Ok so after some digging around, I started looking into the 'mbim-network' command. I already knew my modem was located at /dev/cdc-wdm0. I modified a config file at /etc/mbim-network.conf to contain the following options:

    Code:
    APN=h2g2
    PROXY=yes
    (note that h2g2 is specific to my carrier, look up your carrier's APN and use that instead)

    After saving the config file, I ran
    Code:
    mbim-network /dev/cdc-wdm0 start
    The command created a bunch of output:
    Code:
    Loading profile at /etc/mbim-network.conf...
        APN: h2g2
        APN auth protocol: unset
        APN user: unset

    After this, I restarted ModemManager via systemctl:
    Code:
    systemctl stop ModemManager
    systemctl start ModemManager
    Now my modem is working again! 'mmcli -L' lists the modem:
    Code:
    Found 1 modems:
     /org/freedesktop/ModemManager1/Modem/0 [Dell] MBIM [413C:81C2]
    And the status of ModemManager:
    Code:

    Apr 02 07:49:44 linux-4er5 ModemManager[12594]: <info>  Modem /org/freedesktop/>
    Now, I don't know why I need to do this after I wake the machine from sleep... but I'm going to do research and see if I can automate this or something. If anyone has a better solution please let me know.

    Re: Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE (Dell Latitude 7490)

    More info:

    After waking from sleep, the modem was off. In order to get it started again I had to do the following

    1. Execute the 'ip link set wwan0 up' command to turn on the interface.
    2. Execute the 'mbim-network /dev/cdc-wdm0 start' command.
    3. Toggle the Mobile Broadband setting to be on withing Gnome's Settings application under the Network section.

    After performing these three steps on system wake, I can use the modem. I'm wondering if perhaps the modem is being disabled on sleep and then not woken up. I do have the tlp and tlp-sleep services installed and active. Will report back if I find out more.
