I got ubuntu working with MTP on my Galaxy Nexus (and A500) using instructions for the Nexus 7. I have documented these at my website.

This setup is the only one I have managed to get working, I am using Ubuntu 12.10, and it should work for earlier versions.

I found that connecting more than one device at a time didnt work - could be something in how the udev config is..

If you post the device ids for the 501 (i guess they are different), then I can add that to my page..

I'll have to give this a try as well, as I've had no luck connecting my gnex to Windows XP, Windows 7, Ubuntu or Linux Mint. I'll be trying it out today on Ubuntu 12.10, and will report back later. Fingers crossed!

Well, it may work for you, but it has never worked for me in XP or 7. Others have experienced this as well.

This method works great on Ubuntu 12.04.
Works for me in Windows XP and Windows 7 as long as I turn off USB Debugging

First of all thanks a lot for solving this long pending issue.

Everything worked for me mounting, data transfer through MTP, but while unmounting I am getting an error saying that "umount: /media/Nexus mount disagrees with the fstab"

I am using Ubuntu 12.04, Nexus 4.1.2
