Identifying Google Nexus 7 on Ubuntu

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

The Nexus 7 has been around for a year but still not reached the shores of Sri Lanka.  According to the Daily Mirror, – http://www.dailymirror.lk/tech/189-technology-main/27680-google-to-sell-second-gen-nexus-7-tablet-from-july-sources.html there’s a second generation Nexus 7 that would hit our stores this month.

Nexus 7

I was fortunate enough to purchase this device several months back directly from the US and have been rather pleased with its performance.  One of the pros is that it acts as a very friendly book reader as well.

Today, I mounted the device into Ubuntu and the OS just refused to respond! Did a search on Google and came across this amazing site which had a hundred and one “sudo’s”.  The best thing though is that the article is well written and after carefully following the instructions, Nexus 7 showed up on Ubuntu!  So if you do use Ubuntu and Nexus 7 and want to copy some files through the USB cable, get to this site and sudo:

Happy sudoing!
