    Unhappy Help Mounting Kindle Keyboard

    Ok, so I'll fill brief you wizards on what has happened so far.
    In my searches for the Kindle Keyboard mounting, I have been stunted in different instructions.


    #1 Sudo fdisk -l does not show my kindle as far as I know...

    Code:
     Disk /dev/sda: 256.1 GB, 256060514304 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 31130 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x000c676e
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1   *           1          13      102400    7  HPFS/NTFS
    Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
    /dev/sda2              13       29865   239780864    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda3           29865       31131    10173441    5  Extended
    /dev/sda5           29865       31131    10173440   82  Linux swap / Solaris
    
    Disk /dev/sdb: 31.2 GB, 31221153792 bytes
    128 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7561 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 8064 * 512 = 4128768 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0xc3072e18
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdb1   *        2088        7561    22071168    c  W95 FAT32 (LBA)
    /dev/sdb2               1        2087     8413185    5  Extended
    Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.
    /dev/sdb5               1        2087     8413184   83  Linux
    Those are the results of such.

    #2
    the "quickfix" ive heard of by using
    sudo apt-get install mtpfs

    does not auto-mount or entice my computer into reading the kindle.

    watch -n 1 "dmesg | tail"

    produces this....

    Code:
     [ 1213.900358] usb 2-1.1: device descriptor read/64, error -32
    [ 1214.075294] usb 2-1.1: device descriptor read/64, error -32

    [ 1215.560809] hub 2-1:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 1
    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I just want to put my Harry Potter books on my kindle!
    Thanks!

    Moved to General Help.

    What version of Ubuntu are you running?

    Re: Help Mounting Kindle Keyboard

    Maybe it's time to upgrade, since 10.04 is EOL. I've used a Kindle 3G with Ubuntu versions 11.10 and later, they all have automounted it with no problem.

    Edit: Of course I can't guarantee upgrading will solve your Kindle problem.

    At OP, what is your computer like? Maker, model? RAM, CPU? Why I ask is to see if your computer can handle the upgrade.

    Dell Latitude E6410 i5 cpu w/ 2 GB RAM. I know it can handle the upgrade, but what repositories must I add and what command line executes the update?

    Re: Help Mounting Kindle Keyboard

    I apologize, i know how to update to 12.04 as your link instructs. I prefer gnome and would like to know how to update to 11.10 or a suitable series of commands/downloads to mount my kindle if someone could help me. Thanks

    Re: Help Mounting Kindle Keyboard

    11.10 is also no longer supported. You could always upgrade to 12.04 and install gnome-shell or any other DE you might prefer.

    Re: Help Mounting Kindle Keyboard

    I would agree with oldos2er. Backup your data, download the 12.04 LTS, install the 12.04 LTS and then install the Gnome interface. You get a ton of benefit for maybe two hours work. I highly recommend it.
