  • It would be better if you mention what your final goal is and maybe it'd be better to ask in android stack exchange – xangua Nov 2 '14 at 2:19

    my goal is to be able to have my laptop recognize my phone so i can use adb commands like pulling logcats for example – Oggie7797 Nov 2 '14 at 6:38

    You shouldn't need any additional drivers to use adb with your phone on Ubuntu (I have been able to use adb with my S4 without any additional drivers). Just try running an adb command (adb devices is a good place to start) with your phone plugged in. – hal7df Nov 3 '14 at 1:34

You need to put your computer into developer mode and enable USB debugging.

Steps to take:

Goto: Settings > About phone > Build number

Tap it 7 times. You'll enter developer mode.

The go back to Settings > 'Developer settings' and turn on 'USB debugging'. Your device should then show up when you run 'adb devices'.
