    I don't use adb under Linux, and I don't even know what "mint 8" is, but I assume its a particular Linux distribution?

    Are you saying you don't have bash on your system, and cannot get it but adb is looking for it? If this is the case, its possible that adb can use another shell (but not guaranteed!)... if you open the adb script file you might find a line at the top such as:

    #!/bin/bash

    which tells the system to use bash to interpret the script. If you modify that to point to /bin/sh, and if you're lucky, it could work.

    A better option though, if you're up to the task, is to just download the bash source package and build it for your system (or simply install bash if your distribution has a binary package for it available).
