Physicist/Artist who fools around with electrons, photons, pixels and bits. Currently in San Diego, formerly of Socorro NM, Orlando FL, Boulder CO, Ann Arbor and other places in Michigan.

Mainly, I've been making 2D and 3D illustrations and animations, writing explanations for things in physics, astronomy and electronics, writing software for image processing and science number-crunching, and teaching the cats to do my work for me. Regrettably, the latter endeavor has been a total failure.

I don't know about the OP, but I'm certainly in the market for a Linux friendly phone or tablet.

comment Why would /mnt/sdcard/ not appear?
adb sees the device just fine. It just has to be under the right astrological conditions :P Yup, I did that udev rule thing long ago.

comment Why would /mnt/sdcard/ not appear?
BTW, all this is just to get some photos over to my main desktop machine. If I, a Linux expert, can't figure this out easily, how the heck to ordinary folk get their photos off their Galaxy Tabs?

/sdcard is just a symlink to /mnt/sdcard, prolly as a convenience.

comment Why would /mnt/sdcard/ not appear?
From what I read, external-sd is for actual physical sd cards. I don't have one. For the Galaxy Tab, /mnt/sdcard is a virtual card. My understanding is probably faulty, though.

There is a /mnt but nothing at all inside it. For me, this mythical sdcard directory is as real as unicorns!
