Installing /e/ on FP3 with Linux Mint


I just bought a FP3 and am trying to install /e/ from a Linux Mint PC,

I am stuck at the part where the “Allow USB debugging?” should pop on the phone and doesn’t.

I installed adb and tried “adb devices” on the command tool and it says: AXXXX (phone serial) unauthorized.

Can someone help me ?

I must say I am a total newbie to Linux but eager to learn :slight_smile:

Thanks !

I guess you already tried a couple of times. But if not: disconnect and reconnect the USB cable and try again.

try restarting adb and be sure to use root commands in terminal. I had the same problem on mint 19.3. Once I restarted adb things started working.

sudo adb kill-server
sudo adb start-server

check your phone it should ask you to allow your linux os by usb connect debugging .

sudo adb devices
