mount and unmount android phone in Linux Mint 13 KDE

Postby donec on Sun Jan 13, 2013 10:42 pm

The Webupd8 method
http://www.webupd8.org/2012/12/how-to-mount-android-40-ubuntu-go-mtpfs.html?m=1
didn't work just right for me so I made some modifications some others finding this thread may find helpful.

First I did as Webupd8 said but when it came to using the Unity script I could not find it. So I created 2 scripts (in my user directory with permissions for my user) called

mountnexus4.sh
Code: Select all
go-mtpfs /media/MyAndroid

and
unmountnexus4.sh
Code: Select all
fusermount -u /media/MyAndroid

made them both executable and then dragged them to my unlocked toolbar creating a widget link. Then created an image of a Nexus 4 and an image of a nexus 4 with a red not symbol on it. Changed the widgets icons and locked the toolbar. Result is when I click on one it mounts my Nexus 4 and the other un-mounts my Nexus 4. Works for me.
