So, it seems to be kinda like turkeys have wings, but they can't fly...
I just got a Nexus 7, and silly me, having found out that Android is built on Linux, I thought I would plug it in and it would be like two a meeting of kindred spirits. Um, no, not so much. My computer has no idea that my tablet is in the same universe, much less jacked right in. Turns out there is now MTP, and the tablet is not seen as just another drive.
So, I search the Mint and Ubuntu Forums, didn't really find much that seemed to apply so well. This amazes me, would think lots of people would be hooking Android tablets to their Linux computers? Am I just having a completely different experience from everyone else? Or totally missing something?
So I went to the wider net, found a few things, such as using Dropbox or AirDroid, which seems bizarre, when I have the tablet and the computer right here, and a nice new cable to hook them together. I also found several like the link below, which involve apting MTP-TOOLS MTPFS, followed by a bunch of udev hacking:http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/12/how- ... ile-access
My question is, is this really the way to do this? I already have libmtp-runtime and libmtp-runtime as part of my initial install, should the mtpfs and udev stuff really be necessary? I found something called Qlix in the Software Manager, seems old and not really for Android, but will that work? Or do I really need to do all the udev stuff?
I appreciate any suggestions anyone has.
Thanks so much!
