Adb not finding stuff on Nexus4
I've just installed ubports on a Nexus 4.
I've also successfully copied all the stuff I want off my old N4 that was still running Canonical Ubuntu Touch using "adb", onto my desktop machine (running Manjaro).
However when I try to copy anything onto the new phone I get a permission denied error, e.g.:
adb push Music Music/ adb: error: failed to copy 'Music/fanfare.wav' to 'Music/fanfare.wav': remote Permission denied
If I try to copy anything off the new machine it says the remote file is not found e.g.:
adb pull Music ./Music-new adb: error: remote object 'Music' does not exist
The file manager assures me that Music does exist (even if it does not yet contain anything). I have also tried sudo adb with the same results both for pull & push.
I have enabled developer mode and allowed the PC to access the phone. The device is seen:
adb devices -l List of devices attached 01aa97608715709e device usb:3-4.3 product:aosp_mako model:Nexus_4 device:mako transport_id:3
I'm sure I am missing something very simple but what?
@james-t hi, the first time you make an
adbconnection to a device, you have to accept the connection in your device.
You need to set on the
developer modein your device, and the screen needs to be unlock too previously.
@advocatux Thanks, but I had done that (that's what I meant by allow the PC to access the phone).
@james-t ah perfect. Probably the issue then is that you need to specify the full path to that directory (/home/phablet/Music/).
@advocatux Thanks, it's working now.
