K1 - Linux(Ubuntu) users?

2012-03-07, 6:39 AM

Hey guys,

 is there anybody who uses Ubuntu as main os ? Switched few weeks ago from win to ubuntu and guess what happened. When I plug in my tablet via usb cable it didnt recognize it so i cant transfer any data.

Other droid devices working normally(Galaxy axe, Nexus). So I guess this is problem of K1. 

Wondering if this is random error.

Yesterday I also bought a K1.  I connected a USB key and it worked.  However, hooking it up to my ThinkPad (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS) did not result in the usual dialogs appearing on the ThinkPad's desktop, although the K1 showed up in the output of lsusb and dmesg.

 

This is a bit strange, because when I connected it to a Windows XP machine, a dialog appeared instantaneously.

 

For the time being I'm using AirDroid to connect to my notebook.

For whatever reason, Google removed the standard USB connecttion from Honeycomb and replaced it with MTP. You can use adb, if you have it installed, to transfer files to and from the tablet. Another solution is to use aafm, which has an "explorer" style interface and works pretty well. You can find out how to install it here:

you can also install the mtpfs file system in Linux.  Google "mtpfs ubuntu" and read all about it.

 

"mtpfs is a FUSE filesystem that supports reading and writing from MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) devices, such as MP3 players, video players or digital cameras."

 

Depending on the build of mtpfs that you get, you may have to do some tweaking to get it to recognize the K1.  Again, google is your friend.  There may also be posts about it here (ideapad or thinkpad forums?).
