Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

First, im new on linux so please bear with me.

I have a rooted android phone and i was able to run the adb via wifi network on windows, where i just need to go to the adb's directory and type adb connect.

However, i can't just do that in my ubuntu. Everytime i enter adb connect, the terminal always said that i dont have the adb and i must install it. When i check the ADT Bundle (I downloaded the bundled one from here), i can see the adb is there inside the platform-tools folder.

I already tried to change the directory to the platform-tools and run the adb connect from there, but its still not working.

Do i need to install the adb again via terminal? Or did i miss something?

You may be wondering why dont i just download the adb (again) via terminal and do trial and error? The answer is because i dont have a good internet connection, so i want to avoid unnecessary downloads.

Thanks for your time :D
