MTP on VZW Note 3 with Slackware Linux
Here's what I had to do to get MTP working on Slackware Linux.I'm providing the method as an update archive but it is a simple task if you wish to do it on your own, just read the internal script.
1. Place 'mtp.zip' on your device.
2. Reboot into Recovery.
3. Choose Install.
4. Find and select 'mtp.zip'.
6. Plug the device into Linux.
7. Wait until the Verizon CD Installer has unmounted.
You may need to install something on Linux to provide MTP . This is probably the simplest:
The text at the bottom has a link to pre-compiled binaries.
Here is the script I use to mount/unmount MTP (usinf 64-bit binary):
if [ "$1" == "on" ]; then delay=1; go-mtpfs.x86_64 -allow-other=true -android=true /media/mtp&
elif [ "$1" == "off" ]; then fusermount -u /media/mtp
mount|grep "/media/mtp" >/dev/null && echo MTP is active. || echo MTP is disabled.
mtp on # Mounts the device at /media/mtp. The directory must exist.
mtp off # Un-mounts the device.
mtp # Reports the state.
