Android SDK adb shell error: device not found

Thanks Timur for pointing this link to me.
Really helpful.

I followed all the steps to install Android SDK on a Ubuntu Linux machine.
I went to the "/android-sdk-linux_x86-1.1_r1/tools" directory and run "adb shell"
it replies,
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
error: device not found

The problem is that we need to run everything with root.
So by any chance, if you met the same problem with me, run


sudo ./adb kill-server
sudo ./adb shell


Then you can use "sudo ./adb push" or "sudo ./adb pull" to copy file between a Android Gphone and a computer
