How to install Device Android on Ubuntu Linux

1. Open a terminal and issue the following command:

gksudo nautilus

This will open the 'root - File Browser'.

2. Navigate to the following file in the root filesystem: /etc/udev/rules.d/70-android.rules (Ubuntu 9.10) /etc/udev/rules.d/70-android.rules (Ubuntu 7.10/8.04).

3. Open the text file (This is an executable file, so choose the 'Display' option) and add the following line to the bottom:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666"

This file should now look like this:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666"

Save the changes, and close.

4. Optionally at this point you may wish to restart your computer.

5. Open a terminal and issue the following commands:

cd /home/username/sdk/tools/
sudo restart udev./adb kill-server./adb start-server./adb devices

And in fastboot mode you obviously need the following command:

./fastboot devices

  Your Nexus One should now be detected! As always if anyone sees anything obviously wrong with this update please let me know, I can confirm I have used this method on both my desktop and laptop running Ubuntu 9.10, and it works fine!!

Hope this helps people out a bit!
