I have an Android Phone (a Motorola Milestone) and trying to connect it to my Ubuntu Maverick (10.10). The problem is that i can't even charge it using USB, so there's no message on the phone nor on the computer that a device has been connected.
I also have a Laptop running Ubuntu Maverick aswell and there I can access the phone via USB.
I already created the 51-android.rules file with the according settings, but it didn't work. And I guess this rules-file doesnt matter in this case, because my laptop doesn't event have this file.
Other USB devices like external hard drives can be used as usual, the USB cable itself can't be the problem, because I can use it on my laptop and it works.
I really don't know what the problem could be.
It is also not listet in lsusb on my computer.
Did anybody have a similar problem?
Thank you in advance for any help!
