Mint 14.1 Not recognizing my Andriod device.

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?

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

When you plug the device in by USB, what's the output from:
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.

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

First try SeZo's idea:
sudo apt-get install gvfs-mtp

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

and post the output from:
mount

I tried Sezo's idea, this is what I got.

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:
dmesg | tail -n 40
and
mount
and
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 ?
