    Hi All, This question has probably been asked a million times but I searched for it and didn't find anything.

    Please move this post if needed.

    I have a stock unrooted Nexus 5. What is the easiest way to connect it to Ubuntu? I want to transfer files back and forth. Using wifi probably easiest.

    Assume I'm using the latest Ubuntu distro.

    I'm not a geek and I know almost nothing about the command line. Please keep that in mind when answering. Thanks,

    From the Ubuntu forums:

    1. On your Android device, install FTP Server
    2. On your Ubuntu computer, install Filezilla
    3. Make sure both your computer and your Android device are connected to the same WiFi network
    4. On Android, launch FTP Server, and check "Running". It will provide you an IP and a port.
    5. In Filezilla, connect to yoru Android device using this information, and ftp/ftp as login/password (you can change this in FTP Server if you want)
    6. You can then navigate into your device from your Ubuntu computer!
