How to connect your Android device on Ubuntu Linux
Buying a media device that needs a special driver and/or connectivity suite to navigate and update its contents is a common case nowadays, and has been ever since manufacturers decided that it would be a good idea to just limit the access that users can have on the products that they bought. This may not be a huge problem to Windows and Mac OS users who can simply download the manufacturer’s suite and use it to connect to their device, but Linux is often (if not always) left unsupported in that part. The first time I encountered this problem was with the first generation of iPods and Creative Zen players that refused to show any contents on the File Manager when connected via the USB port, and then came the newest generations of Android devices which do the same. In this quick guide, we will see how we can overcome this problem, and connect our media device on our Linux system.
