I just recently did a install for Ubuntu and I cant get it to go into usb mode after connecting the usb cable. usb debugging is on, is there anything else I need to do to get it to connect?

Have you followed the instructions as mentioned in the setup guide? developer.android.com/tools/device.html –  Sumit Bisht Nov 22 '12 at 5:34
Ubuntu and linux doesn't support MTP mode. You need to change it to MSC mode (Mass Storage). If you have no option to change it. try this or better to ask in android.stackexchange.com –  Web-E Nov 22 '12 at 8:20
