Am I doing something wrong?

You'll have to do it manually. This is exactly how I can do it in my system (Arch Linux), in yours, the process must be something similar, but maybe not the same.

All this as root

First, I created a script in /usr/bin named adbQT

Code:
touch /usr/bin/adbQT && chmod +x /usr/bin/adbQT
With this content (change the paths according to your case):

Code:
#!/bin/bash
export XAUTHORITY=/home/user/.Xauthority
export DISPLAY=':0'
su - user -c "~/pathtoinstalled/QtADB_0.8.1_linux64/./QtADB"
The, I have to add and udev rule in /etc/udev/rules.d

With the tab connected to the PC, do

Code:
lsusb
Look for the corresponding line

Code:
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 076: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co.
Create the rule (change the idVendor and idProduct)

Code:
echo 'SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTR{idProduct}=="6860", RUN+="/usr/bin/adbQT"' >  /etc/udev/rules.d/91-qtadb.rules
Reload udev rules

Code:
udevadm control --reload-rules
An that's it.

This doesn't work for my Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, which has the same vendor and device ID numbers. gMTP says when clicking connect (after a significant "thinking time" where it greys out as busy):

Error
Detect: Unable to open raw device?

Also when connecting the Tab three windows pop up: two which as me what to do with two media players I just connected, the third one with an error message:

Unable to mount SAMSUNG_Android
Error initializing camera: -60: Could not lock the device

The Tab has been recognized as gtab after ls /dev | grep gtab
It is in MTP mode without USB debugging on stock Ice Cream Sandwich.
The media players recognized resemble the internal memory and the internal sdcard (being a part of the memory). They show proper folders, however, these are empty and files on the root can not be accessed (Access denied). Any suggestions?

It would be nice if there was a Mod => SDCARD Mounter as Mass Storage (MSC Mode) like http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1606940 .

Really like Linux .. never go back to win.

I hope that this in upcoming Ice Cream this is fixed...

I know this is an old thread. However, I used it today to connect my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tab to my Linux Mint 17.3 KDE computer successfully!
It took a bit of fiddling, but works good. I now have to learn how to download files to the tab via the computer.
Subject for another thread though.
Many thanks bcmobile......

Jim.
