With my android I can plug a USB cord into both the android device and my Ubuntu desktop computer. What happens is that the android device is mounted on the ubuntu computer, and I can then do file transfers. Also, I am able to run adb commands in the desktop’s terminal to operate on the android (if I need to). Finally, I can mirror my android device on my desktop computer.
I am curious how to do these same things with the Librem 5 and my Ubuntu desktop computer. I connected the phone and the computer together, but nothing noticeable happened.
How does a person do these things (or are they not possible) when the Librem 5 and a desktop computer are connected via a USB cord?
- File transfers and manipulation
- The Librem 5 counterpart to adb type commands
- Mirror the Librem 5 and control it on the desktop
- Also - I’ve read about “convergence”, but it seems that works only with certain, custom “hubs” - is that true?
(I previously asked a much simpler, more limited version of this question, and got a response, for which I am grateful. But upon further research I am thinking that these things should be possible but still left me very confused, so I thought I’d post once more, this time trying to make my question more detailed.)
