Android devices in Ubuntu

I was struggling with getting an android device (the Fujitsu F-12C) to be detected in Ubuntu. If it showed up at all, it would show up as:
$ adb devices
List of devices attached
????????????	no permissions

Fixing this required changing the /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules entry from:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="04c5", MODE="0666"

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04c5", MODE="0666"

An Ubuntu upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 seemed to break this, and it had to be redone (and I couldn't find the solution written down anywhere, so I've put it here for posterity).

A quick restart of udev, then an adb kill-server/start-server, and I was back in business.
