ADB Not Responding - Wait More or Kill adb or Restart (Ubuntu 13) 64-bit

After unsuccessfully attempting to make my new Intellij and Android SDK to work on my newly installed Ubuntu 13.10, I am coming to you for help. I know there are thousands of suggestions out there already but none of them worked for me.

Here is what I have tried:

  • adb kill-server

  • adb start-server

  • adb devices

That last command listed my device - and that meant that it was able to detect it without any issues.

  • I have added all the necessary rules like 51-android.rules and those should be fine.

  • Started and restarted the IDE several times without any success.

  • I have installed libraries to fix any 64-bit issues

  • I even deleted the adb key in the .android folder since it gets generated automatically each time anyway.

  • I have no other older versions of IntelliJ or SDKs;

  • This was a clean installation of Ubuntu; I totally removed my Windows 8 (yeah, am done with Windows) and installed Ubuntu 13.

I don't know what else to try and do because I have spent hours online trying suggestions from others to no avail.

Any help would be really appreciated because I can't wait to get back to my Android App Development!
Thank you.

I hope this helps.
