I'm a little confused on how I'm to install the Helium/Carbon backup tool in Elementary OS :blush: The read me document says to execute the file name after plugging your Android device, which I recall doing but I didn't have the MTP feature installed in Elementary OS at the time but I'm not sure if this is the only reason I'm having issues installing it. Helium/Carbon desktop a utility designed to work with the Android app of the same name which can backup&restore data/settings for apps such as games without the need for rooting. I would like to be able to backup and restore some of my data files that aren't device locked to my new phone.

Any suggestions?
