Xoom transfer files to Ubuntu

Yesterday I got my WiFi Xoom tablet. I want to transfer files, but just have a computer running LInux, without Windows.

I get wifi file explorer and run it. The app gives me the IP and port I need to connect in the browser, however the browser isn't working.

Now I can't find a way to get Xoom to mount in Ubuntu. Is that an ftp client app for Xoom so I can transfer files directly from it?

  1. Just copy the attached file (92-motorola-xoom.rules) to the directory /etc/udev/rules.d

    Now reboot your machine, log in and connect your Xoom. To make sure this first part worked, check for the existence of a symbolic link at /dev/xoom. It will only exist while your Xoom is attached. When you disconnect it, it will go away. You will now be able to access your Xoom as a regular user, and not as root.

    Now install the application gnomad2 if it's not installed. It's available in the Add/Remove Software app.
    Run gnomad2 with the Xoom connected, and you should now be connected to your Xoom! You can see your files, browse the different folders on your Xoom, and you can copy files back and forth. That's it!
