I have no idea how to do this. When I connect the phone to my (ubuntu) pc, I can transfer files taken with the camera to the pc, but I want to put some wallpapers on the phone from my pc. The phone in MTP mode won't show up on my computer, but PTP mode is no problem. Do I need Nexus Media Importer (from the play store) to achieve this? Stumped.

If you have a router, I suggest using Airdroid or WiFi File Transfer. Both can be downloaded from Google Play Store.

To enable file transfer between my phone and computer I used this method. I am running Ubuntu 12.04. However, the same guide would not work for my other laptop that runs Ubuntu 10.04. After attempting several different methodsI still can't get it to work. If anyone has been successful getting MTP support on Ubuntu 10.04 please post your method here, it would be greatly appreciated.

cheers

+1 for this. You just need to make sure you made the folder on the PC side shareable to your network.
This also allows easy copy and paste between any cloud folders/PC/tablet/phone/whatever you need without wires.
