[HOWTO] Play/Share Minecraft with friends without buying in Ubuntu 16.04

Me and my friends were trying to play some Minecraft on our free time, but the problem is that we all didn’t had Minecraft bought. Two of us had it bought but other four still wanted to play. So, I have to look for some sort of solution so everyone can enjoy the game. We mostly work on Ubuntu so all had same platform. This version of solution shall work on Windows and MacOS.

[SOLVED] Huawei Mobile Broadband E1550 not working/switching to modem mode on Ubuntu 16.04

I have a 3G dongle, Huawei E1550. But I cannot change the mode from DISK to Modem mode. I just searched through the internet and with multiple places and help I found a way to switch mode and device is working perfectly. I create a new Mobile Broadband connection from the network connection and filled up the details of my mobile broadband provider.

After that I inserted the USB Modem and checked with the lsusb in the terminal. And one of the response was following:

Note the bold figures above. 12d1 and 1446 is what we need to make the modem switch perfectly. But first we need to install the modeswitch by following command[May be installed on other OS with similar command]:

Note: this may work for any other USB dongle that is not switching from one mode to another
