    If your Ubuntu is 64 bit, you'll need 32 bit compatibility libraries to run adb.

    Re: How to install adb for Android with Ubuntu

    Hi there!

    I am new to Android and adb. And I am so much of a linux-hacker, but using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with pride.

    I installed adb according to your description, but "adb devices" will not list any devices.

    When I do a "ls -l /dev/<symlink_of_device>" I see, the symlink is pointing to the node it should according to "lsusb".

    This happens with two different tablets.


    Any suggestions, where to look for the mistake?

    Many thanks in advance for helpfull answers!

    Stefan

    Another question came into my mind, tonight:

    Do I need special software for adb on Android?

    The debugging-option is activated on both tablets.

    and nothing more ... but every time I need to connect new, the Device-Number grows higher (first it was 005 ... now 016 ...)

    How can I connect this device with NO NAME ???

    The problem is, as device-name there is nothing, but can you help me, how I can connect nothing to use nothing with adb ... ???

    But I can not laugh about it, because this fu... android-tablet with no name cannot be found in adb, not with OS Ubuntu, nor under Windows

    Only with the RKBatchtool under Windows I can see it and I can flash the original Rom

    but I want to root it ............ can anybody help me with my EasyPix EasyPad EP750 ... its everything else than easy


    Don't know if my udev-rules work: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{ID_VENDOR_ID}=="2207", ENV{ID_MODEL_ID}=="290a", MODE="0666"
    That vendor id is same as my RCA RCT6378W2 tablet, and it appears the rules test worked, but "adb devices" comes back blank - no devices found. Argh! BTW, my tablet won't boot (stuck at flashing RCA logo) but will start in recovery mode.

    Only part that needs adding to the OP is that

    Code:
    sudo udevadm trigger --action=change
    should be run after adding the correct rules
    Trial and error are your best teachers.

    Re: How to install adb for Android with Ubuntu

    One IMPORTANT remark.
    Make sure that in
    ~/.android there's an adb_usb.ini file. If not create one and add a line with your device vendor id.
    In my case
    adb_usb.ini
    consist of one line:
    0x2717
    Do NOT forget about "0x" even if it's not displayed as a part of your phone's vendor id.
    Without
    adb_usb.ini my list of devices was empty despite udev rule working perfectly.
