Hi

I am struggling to run adblink on Linix Mint 18.2 Sonya - I would like to reset my Amazon Firestick from my laptop through USB 

I have downloaded adbll38.zip, extracted it and confirmed rwx access (I am doing this all as root anyway)

Any tips please?

You shouldn't need root, except for moving the adbLink folder to /usr/local/bin/, if you choose to do so.

What is your issue?  If adbLink won't start,  cd to its folder and try running it from the command-line 
Code:
$ ./adbLink

Note any error messages.
I've deployed a patched version of adbLink 3.8 that displays as usual when using macOS dark mode. Note, it does not implement a dark mode version of adbLink, it just keeps the original appearance no matter which mode is selected. Please download and re-install if dark mode is an issue for you.

macOS: Dark mode support.

macOS: Use iTerm as an alternative to Terminal

Windows 7: Console didn't open for some users. Fixed.

Moving Kodi data to external storage fails if external
storage lacks an Android/data/ file structure. Fixed.

Log file location for Windows incorrect: Fixed.

Hi There,

I'm sorry if it isn't the right place..
I seem to have trouble in seeing files on my Nvidia Shield Tv box..
I'm connected but for some reason I can't see the files..
I'm running adblink 3.9
Can you tell me what am I doing wrong?
Kind Regards
Guy

I got your email.  Thus far I haven't been able to reproduce your issue, but I'm still investigating.
Do I need the plexmedia server running for this? at the moment it is
Do I need a account with plexmedia for this? at the moment I don't have a account
I have to say using the install apk was NO problem

I'm just asking because when I plugged a usb stick in it asked permission for this app.
adbLink doesn't require plex or interact with it in any way.  It's a front-end for Google's adb utility.

I used adbLink to backup my Plex Media Server data files on my Shield remotely. Works like a charm.
Hi,
On your advice I installed version 3.5 but there was no change in behaviour.

I do seems to be able to install apk's.

Is there anything I can do to help troubleshooting?

Kind reagrds

Still working fine here, oddly enough.  Try double-clicking the device id in the "connected devices" listbox.
adbLink 3.9 says on the web site "10.7 or greater" for the version of OS X support, but when I tried to install it with El Capitan here (10.11.6), it says it requires macOS 10.12 or greater.  Thus, I can no longer use the latest version.  Sadly, every time I start the previous version it keeps hounding me with "upgrade to 3.9 now?"  Yeah, no means no, right?  Sadly, it doesn't.  It doesn't remember your selection.
Thank you for the heads-up.  You can turn off version checks in preferences.

I'm all Mojave with the exception of one High Sierra 2011 Macbook Pro for dev/testing purposes, unfortunately.  I'll make adjustments to the website regarding macOS requirements.
adbLink 4.0  02/02/19

File manager empty panel issue fixed

If file manager still has a blank panel you may have
to reinstall busybox on your device:

1. Utility menu
2. Reinstall Busybox

Google+ support links removed. Google+ is EOL 4/2/19.

Just to reiterate, if file manager still displays blank panels with v4.0 adbLink, reinstall busybox via the utility menu.  That should fix the issue..
