Type "ls" to see if that file exists there.

Or type "sudo killall adb", "sudo ./adb root" and then what you need. Worked for me.

Cheers

I'm getting "device not found" under Knoppix 6.2. How can I make Linux recognize the device?

I have tried Ubuntu, but that gives me "adb-linux; file not found" despite that the file is definitely there.
