Postby xircon on Wed Sep 05, 2012 3:39 pm

This is what I have done:
Install relevant packages:
Code: Select all
 sudo apt-get install mtp-tools mtpfs


Plug Nexus in:
Code: Select all

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0c45:641d Microdia 1.3 MPixel Integrated Webcam
Bus 002 Device 019: ID 18d1:4e42 Google Inc.
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)

Bus 002 Device 018: ID 413c:8160 Dell Computer Corp. Wireless 365 Bluetooth


Unplug, then:

Set up a UDEV rule:
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="18d1", ATTR{idProduct}=="4e42", MODE="0666", OWNER="molly3"


Set up a mount point:
Code: Select all
sudo service udev restart
sudo mkdir /media/Nexus7
sudo chmod a+rwx /media/Nexus7


Plug Nexus 7 in and select MTP on the tablet, then enter:
Code: Select all
sudo mtpfs -o allow_other /media/Nexus7


Code: Select all
Listing raw device(s)
Device 0 (VID=18d1 and PID=4e42) is UNKNOWN.
Please report this VID/PID and the device model to the libmtp development team
   Found 1 device(s):
   18d1:4e42 @ bus 2, dev 20
Attempting to connect device
Android device detected, assigning default bug flags
Listing File Information on Device with name: (NULL)


Launch Nautilus, click on Nexus, click on "internal storage" folder and another copy of Nautilus opens!

gMTP works as does using AirDroid, but I am officially stumped!!!!!
