I'm trying to connect my tablet nexus 10 + android 4.4 + cyanogen-mod 11 to my desktop computer where I have installed debian wheezy using adb. It worked until some time ago,now it doesn't anymore neither with debian linux nor with windows 8 or Mac OS. Check here :

root@localhost:/home/marietto# lsusb

root@localhost:/home/marietto# adb devices
List of devices attached 

The devices is attached to the computer with a common usb cable but it seems that it is not recognized. I've already enabled the usb debug on the nexus 10 configuration panel and I have installed the adb tools under debian with the following commands (taken from this site :


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

This is the version of the adb bridge installed on my debian wheezy :

root@localhost:/home/marietto# adb version
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.31

On the nexus 10 I have enabled the root access for adb and applications. I don't know what to do

    On the Nexus, go to Settings => Memory, then go the other Settings (top right) and choose USB-Connection. Try the other connection method.

Have you tried changing between MTP and PTP. Tap the USB debugging sybol and it gives you the option.
