Grabbed libmtp from sourceforge and compiled that, but it installed into /usr/local/bin and mtp-detect was still using the version in /usr/bin.
Then tried grabbing libmtp9 source packages for oneiric and building them locally the "normal" way (configure, make, make install). When I tried using debian/rules, got some errors that were beyond my capabilities.
Setup: gtab 10.1 from I/O (running 3.1), natty x64
Can't seem to find any libmtp9 PPAs, either. And trying to dpkg -i the libmtp9 .deb file just gives me loads of dependency problems.
Anyone making any progress with this?
I got it working using the source from sourceforge, but adding: "./configure --bindir=/usr/bin --libdir=/usr/lib"
hope that helps!
maybe i was a bit premature; mtp-detect finds gtab, but there's still a problem connecting - i'll work on it!
