    Is there a good and comprehensive way of getting the Behold 2 recognized by Linux (ubuntu 9.10)?

    I have the SDK installed and everything works but I don't Know how to get Ubuntu to recognize my phone, when I do ./adb devices it comes up empty.

    HELP!

    I'm in the same boat, I have created about 10 rules files, but none have worked for me. BH_MAN had said he got his to work, hopefully he can post his rules files. There is also a patched adb file for the galaxy, not sure if we need to use it.

    Hopefully someone can help us! I really want to use Proxoid with my netbook.

    I have the following code on my 90-android.rules:
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666", OWNER="megabite"

    when do the lsusb command I see that the phone is present:
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 04e8:6640 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd Usb Modem Enumerator

    I tried changing the MODE to match the 6640 but it doesn't get recognized after reboot. I run the ./adb devices command and what I get back is nothing.

    I have the following version of ADB: Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.25

    I found about 10 different versions of the rules files, including the line inside of it as well as the number in the file name.

    chadmd23@chadmd23-netbook:/etc/udev/rules.d$ cat 70-android.rules


    SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666", OWNER="chadmd23"
    SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6640", MODE="0666", OWNER="chadmd23"


    I used 70 because that was the number that was in front of the persistent rules.
