I have a problem setting up my android device. It's not being detected by adb.

I've tried the configration from http://developer.android.com/tools/device.html -> '3. Set up your system to detect your device.' -> 'If you're developing on Ubuntu Linux...'

It have worked on older version of fedora but it fails now. Could you please help me with that?

putting things in /etc/udev/rules.d/ works for me. But didn't yet try adb on fedora 21

M0Rf30 maintains a Github repo for udev rules for most of the popular devices. You can get them easily as follows.

cd /etc/udev/rules.d
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/M0Rf30/android-udev-rules/master/51-android.rules
chmod a+r /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules

Thanks for the link, but this is not the best practice... to just copy random untrusted code from github into your linux configs. Some sort of verification screen would be preferable... perhaps a tunnel to nano and save as a requirement. Still, thank you!

If you would like to turn this into proper rpm package that would be very appreciated.
