ADB on Linux Mint 17.1 doesn’t recognize Zenfone 5 with Android Kitkat 4.4.2

As described in the title, ADB v4.2.2 in Linux Mint 17.1 KDE with latest updates doesn’t recognize my Zenfone 5 A501 with Android Kitkat 4.4.2 with latest updates. When I tried:

adb devices

the output is always

List of devices attached 
????????????    no permissions

despite I plugged/unplugged. My laptop didn’t have Windows so I can’t check. Please help me. Thanks a lot.



You must do this settings (Using Hardware Devices):

If you’re developing on Ubuntu Linux, you need to add a udev rules file that contains a USB configuration for each type of device you want to use for development. In the rules file, each device manufacturer is identified by a unique vendor ID, as specified by the ATTR{idVendor} property. For a list of vendor IDs, see USB Vendor IDs, below.

To set up device detection on Ubuntu Linux: Log in as root and create this file: /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules. Use this format to add each vendor to the file:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0b05", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev" 

In this example, the vendor ID is for ASUS. The MODE assignment specifies read/write permissions, and GROUP defines which Unix group owns the device node. Note: The rule syntax may vary slightly depending on your environment. Consult the udev documentation for your system as needed. For an overview of rule syntax, see this guide to writing udev rules.

Now execute:

chmod a+r /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
