Mint 14.1 Not recognizing my Andriod device.
« on: April 28, 2013, 07:46:45 am »
Just moved to Mint 14.1 to see if I can get any more life out of my laptop.  Ubuntu was starting to misbehave in many ways and I really was sick of Unity. Mint seems to be flying along. The thing is  I use HSPA on my Andriod mobile for the Internet.  It's very fast and serves me well.  With Ubuntu my mobile was recognized as a USB drive or a router instantly (when connected by lead).  Now, Mint can see the wireless on my mobile and connect but in is not recognizing it as a device at all for file transfer or router when connected by a a usb lead.
Can you help?
Life is for living.  RIP Keith Floyd.   ;)

IIRC diidn't Mint do something weird with the .gvfs directory ?

When you plug the device in by USB, what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dmesg | tail -n 40
and is there anything listed at

/run/users/<your-username>/gvfs
WARNING: You are logged into reality as 'root'

logging in as 'insane' is the only safe option.

Yeah they moved it location to /run/user/your-user-name/gvfs


If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

If this is the phone, it appears that it IS being mounted as /dev/sdd1

First try SeZo's idea:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gvfs-mtp

Then see if anything is mounted at /run/users/<your-username>/gvfs

and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
mount

I think what you want is the mtpfs package.

Was that with the phone plugged in ?

Unplug the phone from the USB socket .. Plug the phone back in, then send the output from:
Code: [Select]
dmesg | tail -n 40
and
Code: [Select]
mount
and
Code: [Select]
ls -a /run/user/adammaureen/gvfs

Can you also mention the phone make/model/OS

When you say it worked in Ubuntu .. which version, and what exactly happened when you plugged it in that isn't happening now ?
