Storage [Q] Data transfer via MTP on ubuntu

Hi there,

has anyone tried to use the MTP file transfer option of the Fairphone with Ubuntu (I'm using 13.04 at the moment). It seems that the phone is recognized by my system:

Code:
[49875.145923] usb 1-1.2: new high-speed USB device number 12 using ehci-pci
[49875.240046] usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=0bb4, idProduct=0c02
[49875.240057] usb 1-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=2, Product=3, SerialNumber=4
[49875.240063] usb 1-1.2: Product: MT65xx Android Phone
[49875.240068] usb 1-1.2: Manufacturer: MediaTek
[49875.240072] usb 1-1.2: SerialNumber: ...
but the device is not shown in Nautilus.

Who knows how to fix that?

Thanks,
Tobi

I guess this is more an Ubuntu issue/question than Fairphone's..

You can follow instructions here

Code:
$ sudo mtpfs -o allow_other /media/MTPdevice

Unable to open ~/.mtpz-data for reading, MTPZ disabled.Listing raw device(s)
Device 0 (VID=0bb4 and PID=2008) is UNKNOWN.
Please report this VID/PID and the device model to the libmtp development team
   Found 1 device(s):
   0bb4:2008 @ bus 2, dev 20
Attempting to connect device
Android device detected, assigning default bug flags

Listing File Information on Device with name: FP1
Nautilus gave me read-only access to content under the custom mount point /media/MTPdevice. dmesg gave me the same log as yours when recognizing the device...

It doesn't work for me either. But this is an issue that is usual in Ubuntu. Even though it is not an issue in Ubuntu.

* libMTP with a detailed description
* gvfs-mtp
* go-mtpfs

I use either the USB storage or PTP.

(MTP is buggy.)

Okay, I see.. With my former phone (LG O4x, cm-11) it was working flawlessly with mtp on Ubuntu, that's the rason I asked.. With the fairphone, I'm simply using adb for the moment to copy single files..
