I have recently purchased a Galaxy Nexus which preloaded with Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Unfortunately for me ICS is using Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) rather than mounting as USB drive. This has given me hard time as I’m using Kubuntu which does not have good support for MTP for the time being. Although Amarok is able to detect MTP devices but it failed to transfer files from my laptop to my phone.
AirDroid allows you to manage content of your phone via wireless connection from your web browser. The following video show you the capability of AirDroid.
After installing AirDroid I was expecting it to be working just fine. However my browser failed to load the address provided by AirDroid. This seems to be a well known issue at their forum.
I managed to fix this issue by installing connectbot. Once installed and restarted AirDroid, I’m able to manage my phone content via web browser.

Make sure that your connectbot is running in local environment before running AirDroid.
