i connect an usb device but i cannot see it plz help
how i can see connected usb device in linux unbuntu or i have to install something else to get it working any help would be appreciated when i connect an usb device nothing happens it is a new install of linux regards saulius
"a usb device" is rather ambiguous, are you talking about a web cam, a thumb drive, a art tablet, a mouse, etc... the answers to what and why on all of those are considerably different. We need more details it may be something for a thumb drive as simple as needing to mount it or something for a winmodem of it not working regardless. Everything requires the appropriate drivers no matter what the operating system.
thanks for that but I'm using sony ericsson satio u1i in both media transfer and mass storage modes and the system do not see it I tried connect usb M2 adapter and it worked just had some issues seeing photo's made with sony erricsson k850i but hope it solved becouse I have installed ubuntu from cd now at the start it was done via windows installer package
