Ubuntu One :: U1MS - Pc Would See An Android Phone As A Removable Drive Instead Of Syncing?
Nov 7, 2010
I'm guessing that when one purchases music that the file first goes to 'cloud storage' and then to sync with Rhythmbox? I would like to see that as an option. I personally would rather the file(s) be downloaded straight to my laptop. B'cause once I get my server up and running I would have the local storage space of my own to grab the files from, and redundancy with backed up partitions if some files would get messed up. I enjoy using Ubuntu OS. I don't use Windows anymore, or OS-X, so using iTunes isn't an option for me.
I wait for the day that I can trade up from this iPhone to an Android. I like the way that a pc would see an Android phone as a removeable drive so instead of syncing. I just prefer to drag/drop or copy/paste music files, rather than syncing.
I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but has anyone had any success in syncing and android phone to KDE PIM?I'm just looking for a new phone and was wondering if this would work. I'm mostly after being able to sync Kontact and the Calender.
I just got this new android today and I am trying to figure out how to sync my mail, calendar, and contacts. Is the only way I can do this is by sycing it with google? I use a att email so really don't know how this will work out.
I used to be able to sync my music with HTC Hero and Banshee, but when I upgraded to 2.1 quite a while back banshee seems to crash. I now have a Nexus One (Android 2.2) and that does the same. (no longer have the Hero). They both seem to crash Banshee when it gets to syncing the playlists (every time), music syncs fine. Does anyone else on 2.1 or 2.2 have this problem or is it just me? (been doing searches every now and then since the Hero update but cant find anything).
I just got an Evo 4g(great phone) but when I attach it to my computer via USB I can't access the memory card. Linux recognizes it as an Evo and shows it as a USB drive but nothing happens when I try to open it as a folder.
I am running ubuntu 10.10 and supplying my internet connection with EasyTether on my Motorola Droid 2. I've got my laptop internet working great, but I've tried to follow a couple connection sharing guides and they don't seem to work with my PS3. So the setup is that EasyTether provides the internet connection and an ethernet cable connects the laptop and ps3. I have even tried using FireStarter, but it says eth0 (the connection between laptop and ps3) is not ready.
So here's the question: What should I do to allow my ps3 to access the internet? I've tried manual and automatic settings on my ps3 and neither worked. I believe the problem is with my laptop's settings.
Here's what happens when I do a connection test on my PS3 (automatic config)
Obatain IP Address - Failed
And when I do it manually
Obtain IP Address - Succeeded Internet Connection - Failed
I've just got a nice HTC Desire (ie almost the same model as the Nexus One), and it can work as a modem for accessing the internet. After googling this, I've found out that on debian it works straight without adding any package, just as the pjone is connected. This is not the case on slackware 13... Has anyone got this to work already?
I've been trying to set up MPD & Icecast to stream my music to my HTC Incredible. I have it set up now to the point that I can open my stream on my laptop through VLC. I can also open my icecast server on my phone's web browser, however, when I try to open up the stream in StreamFurious it seems to download, but then upon finishing says something to the effect of "Broken Pipe - Stopped"
I like playing around in linux. I have Windows 7 Home Premium which does not have Remote access.I want to be able to control my computer from my android phone. Which verison would be best. I was going to try out Linux Mint 9.
I have installed the wireless driver shown in the additional drivers tool but am unable to understand how to set up a wifi hotspot so that i can use internet on my android phonethe guides google returned are a bit too complicated with ip tables and all
I'd like to connect to my Ubuntu via my Android Nexus S phone, and ideally using something works similar on Windows 7 as well. I realize that this topic must of been covered a hundred times before, but given I'm not confident even in the basic theory please stay with me;I need to connect via SSL (installing something like open SSL server on the desk top machines) and a suitable app on the phone (like Connectbot for example)And then a VNC client on the phone as well as my Ubuntu and window 7 machines (?)
Can anyone recommend GUI interfaces, good practice tutorials, that they've found helpful. I'm starting on the OpenSSL docs, but an overview just to make sure that I'm looking along the right lines would be cool.
I'm trying to get my android 2.3 phone to connect to my vpn server and I followed this guide [URL]... but it isn't working. I've tried compiling both xl2tpd and openswan myself but it resulted with the same error I can connect to my vpn from windows 7 but when I try to connect with my phone I get this in the log file (jumped to the interesting part & highlighted the line that's bothering me most)

I have an apache server running perl-based sql-ledger with a postgresql database and php-based egroupware with a mysql database. As of 2-3 months ago I cannot log in to either of these applications from the web browser on my android phone, even when connected to the local network. I cannot find anything in any of the logs for any of these programs reporting an error, nor does the secure and messages logs.
What I am trying to do: I am trying to use my G1 Android Phone as a remote to control my netbook playing music in my bedroom, My net book is playing music from my server using DAAP + Rythmbox. That part is done. The part I can't make work is the Andromote App on my phone controlling when the netbook plays, pause, next, prev, & volume.
What I am using: I am running Ubuntu 9.04 both on my server as well as my netbook (netbook has the netbook interface) I am running a rooted version of Android 1.6. The programs I am trying to use are Rythmbox on my netbook and Andromote on my G1.
Has anyone hacked/installed Ubuntu on the Nokia N900 and/or Android phone? MeeGo is coming very close to a full desktop distro. I am very curious to see what sort of performance Ubuntu (or something lighter like Lubuntu) exhibits on a mobile device.
I have a samsung vibrant. I can play my music files over one of my work computers via blue tooth. but have been able to do the same with my home ubuntu 10.04 computer. oddly enough.I can connect to the phone and see all the folders on the phone but I cant see any files.also, I can download files to the phone but not up from the phone. am i missing something that enables playback over blue tooth? or is it simply something that windows has zeroed in on that linux hasn't as of yet?
I have just bought a HTC Desire Z mobile phone, running Android 2.2.
It has a feature to allow, via the USB cable, use of the Internet connection on a PC so that the phone can connect via that, rather than use the 3G or wi fi when those are not available or not wanting to use them. I want to download lots of applications without draining my 3G data allowance.
I have searched via Google, and some people have said that it just worked for them. They plugged in the phone to their Ubuntu PC and they could use the Internet on the phone.
But I cannot get it to work. I am new to Android, and still figuring out the phone. In the Settings/Wireless & Networks, there is an option for Internet Pass-through, which is trying to connect but never does. Then it comes up with a message saying: "Unable to connect to PC" and asks me to install HTC Sync software (which is Windows only).
Is there something I need to install in Ubuntu to get it to work?
How might I go about syncing my Windows Phone 7 phone with Ubuntu? All I really need is just the Music and Contacts would by no means hurt. This is my only MP3 Player at the moment and I had just had to switch to Ubuntu due to a long series of very frustrating issues with Windows 7 x64 and Windows XP x64
Used to be, when I connected my phone and turned on USB Storage, it would automount, and I'd get a popup window asking me what I wanted to do (open and view files, or import photos with gthumb). I would just choose open and view files, move photos, music, etc. back and forth...
I would see the device listed in pcmanfm or thunar. Now, nothing happens. I do not get the popup, nor see the device in any file manager, etc. When I do fdisk -l, I do not see the phone listed, but when I do lsusb, I do see it.
Code: Select allBus 008 Device 067: ID 0482:0734 Kyocera Corp. Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
It's a Kyocera Hydro Elite, an android device, set for USB Mass Storage upon connection. The phone knows when it's been connected and gives me the option to turn on the mass storage, which used to trigger the popup on the computer, but the computer no longer responds.
I have thunar-volman and mtp-tools installed.
I don't seem to have any relevant entry in /etc/fstab. Not sure if I did before upgrading to jessie from wheezy or not... I don't believe so...don't think an upgrade would wipe anything from there.
Why I'm not getting access to the phone now? Or how I can mount it without knowing it's location from fdisk? I do not use gnome, but rather plain openbox.
I am trying to use scp in order to copy files from an ubuntu machine to my Android phone. I use connectbot to log in to my ubuntu. However, when I use scp I get an error as if the destination does not exist. The destination is /mnt/sdcard/download on myAndroid 2.2.
I recently downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and installed it onto a 250gb removable disk using a 240gb ext4 partition and a 10gb swap space.
I am using a Sony VAIO (VPCF115FM) and it would appear that my BIOS is very limited as to bootup options. I can only choose internal HDD/external device/network/CD Drive. I cannot check whether or not my BIOS is able to recognize the external ext4 (but from experiences so far it would seem that it cannot)
After much tinkering i got my internal windows 7 to recognize the drive as ext3 (Used ext2 volume manager to add a registry entry for the drive). However, I need to unplug and replug in the drive for it to be recognized, if i leave it plugged in from booting it shows up as unrecognized.
Summary: I would like to be able to boot up Ubuntu off this external drive, but as of now it would appear that my BIOS is unable to recognize the drive. Windows can recognize it as ext3, and I can access contents of the ubuntu partition from windows.
how I could get this working that would be fantastic, i've tried formatting the drive to other filesystems (ext3,ext2,XFS) but none of them would work either, so any information would be sweet
