Title: Mint 14.1 Not recognizing my Andriod device.
Post by: Toonman 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?

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

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

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 ?

I think what you want is the mtpfs package.

@Mark
Take a look at this article (http://www.webupd8.org/2013/01/upgrade-to-gvfs-with-mtp-support-in.html) how you can use a PPA which has the latest Gvfs MTP backend

Mint 14 is based on 12.10 right ?

and Mint doesn't update the kernel like Ubuntu ?

 and comes with kernel 3.5. Although not used it for a while, but as I remember it the kernel updates are the same as in Ubuntu
but not offered unless you set the preferences to 5 in the update manager.

That's what I meant :)

According to that bug report, the bug appeared in kernel 3.3, and was fixed in 3.5.0-19 .. so I reckon just enabling the kernel updates, or running:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
should bring in a later kernel.

If you see any messages about the kernel being "held back" .. run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Then reboot, and see which kernel you're now on with:
Code: [Select]
uname -a

Then check if you're still getting those errors in dmesg, and if things are working now.

Well that doesn't appear to have updated the kernel at all .. do you know how to set the mint updater to accept kernel updates ?

If so, try making level 5 updates visible and see if there's a kernel update.

If there isn't, we'll manually install kernel 3.6

Shall we just try manually installing the 3.6 kernel ?

[EDIT]

If so, run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]

then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop/kernel3.6
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.6-quantal/linux-headers-3.6.0-030600-generic_3.6.0-030600.201209302035_i386.deb

then

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

When that command finishes .. REBOOT .. then send the output from:

If my memory serves me correct, for me to mount my SGS3 / N7 in Ubuntu/Mint I had enable mass storage via USB settings on the phone / tablet, or enable UMS mode. Having had enough of the issues, I said f*** it, and just installed Samba on my Android devices. Much simpler, and easier.

Samba for Android - Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.funkyfresh.samba&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5mdW5reWZyZXNoLnNhbWJhIl0.)

Though it's not "THE" solution you're looking for, it is "a" solution. :)

UBUNTU 12.10   Also The Andriod operating system is 2.3 NOT 4.1 as I said in a previous post.

Is this the SAME PC that it previously worked on ?

Seems odd that it would work on Ubuntu 12.10 but not Mint 14 as they use the same kernel series and the same(ish) repos .. so I'm trying to figure out if anything else has changed ?
Title: Re: Mint 14.1 Not recognizing my Andriod device.
Post by: Toonman on May 10, 2013, 02:10:54 pm
Yes it's the same PC.  Even more odd is the fact that I have now plugged in my Samsung Galaxy note 2 and it is instantly recognized.  There have been no problems until the last week or so.  No Andriod updates and as far as I know None for Mint. Now here is the really interesting news......it works with my netbook with Peppermint 3!

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on May 10, 2013, 03:07:11 pm
Do you know how to boot into the older kernel, so we can remove 3.6 ?

I have a feeling this is still related to that bug report I mentioned earlier .. we really need to get Mint to get the 3.5.0-19.30 kernel from Ubuntu updates (which Ubuntu would have installed as an update).

[EDIT]

Are you SURE Ubuntu was 12.10 and not 12.04 ?

Post by: Toonman on May 10, 2013, 03:10:04 pm
Right.  I have re-read this thread and gone through all the terminal commands.  I looked at BKS's post and checked the mass storage box.  For some reason this works over file transfer.  The thing is I never checked file transfer mode over Mass storage it was just an automatic command.  Why this has happened I dont know.  I never had this issue before.  It's strange it works in File transfer mode on Peppermint but stopped working in Mint.

So it is now resolved.  Thanks to everyone who has helped.

OK.  I was a bit excited about it working.  It's not.  The phone now has a check box active for usb mass storage and file transfer that could not be 'checked' before.  I now can check it but nothing happens.  No modem and not recognized in 'Disks'.  DAMN!

Shut down your PC .. turn ON your PC, and immediately hit and hold the "Shift" key until you are presented with the GRUB menu.

In the GRUB menu, use the down arrow key to select "Previous Linux Versions" and hit enter.

In the next menu, select the top option (already selected) and hit enter to boot.

Once booted, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
and
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep 3.6.0



You're also selectively answering my questions again ;)

Are you SURE the working Ubuntu version was 12.10 (quantal) and not 12.04 (precise) ?

OK, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-3.6.0-030600 linux-headers-3.6.0-030600-generic linux-image-3.6.0-030600-generic linux-image-extra-3.6.0-030600-generic
(wait for that command to leave you back at an $ prompt)
then reboot normally (without holding shift), and hopefully it will boot into 3.5.0-17 .. you can check this by running:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
again.

If you are at 3.5.0-17 after the normal reboot, do this -

Launch the Mint Updater .. Go to Edit>Preferences .. tick "Safe" and "Visible" for all 5 categories.

Apply, and you should now hopefully be able to see and select the 3.5.0-19 kernel update.

If it DID upgrade the kernel to 3.5.0-19 .. REBOOT.

Check it booted into 3.5.0-19 with:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
again.

If "uname -a" says you're now running 3.5.0-19 .. try your phone now.

Do what you did before .. hold shift etc. and select the 3.5.0-17 kernel to boot into.

if it boots, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
and post the output.

Nup.  keeps hanging on boot and when I force a restart it will not recognize my phone.  There is now a folder on my desktop which is named Kernel 3.6.

are there any kernel updates listed ?
Title: Re: Mint 14.1 Not recognizing my Andriod device.
Post by: Toonman on May 16, 2013, 07:17:42 am
Done that showed 5 updates for Kernel 3.5.

Still doesn't work and worst still my other phone that did work now won't.

This is a right so and so to fix.

Have you considered moving back to Ubuntu and installing Cinnamon on that ? ... or maybe another distro, Hmm let me think what would I suggest ..... ;)

is it booting OK now ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
now ?

Ubuntu 12.10 and Cinnamon I think. Is it easy to do?
Title: Re: Mint 14.1 Not recognizing my Andriod device.
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on May 16, 2013, 05:21:38 pm
I do believe it's supposed to be this easy:

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinnamon
See here:

Thanks Mark.

Installed Ubuntu 12.10 and followed the instructions to install Cinnamon.  I can't get it to load.  I followed the links you posted and still no joy , just Unity.  I have logged in and out, restarted, re- installed etc.

Oh! and just for an extra bit of fun..................my phones are not recognized.    :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(  I don't have much hair left to pull out!

Have you selected "Cinnamon" as the session from the login screen ?
Title: Re: Mint 14.1 Not recognizing my Andriod device.

Hi Mark.

I cannot find that option.  All I have is my user name and guest.

At the login screen, BEFORE entering your password, click the little cog icon .. you should be offered Cinnamon.

I don't have a little 'Cog Icon!
Title: Re: Mint 14.1 Not recognizing my Andriod device.
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on May 19, 2013, 05:49:30 pm
The Ubuntu logo then .. the one that's in the same place as the cog was in 11.10 .. the one the freaky little green bird-fish-thingy is pointing at here:-

(http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/login-screen-12.10.jpg)

Are you sure you were running 12.10 when the phone worked before .. there was some confusion as to whether you were running 12.10 or 12.04 IIRC ???



IIRC you can also change the default session somewhere in "System Settings" .. but I'm not sure that's a good idea until it's tested as working OK from the login screen, or how would you (easily) change it back ;)

Post by: Toonman on May 20, 2013, 09:13:48 am
Don't have the logo either!

OK.  Here is some more important info'.

IMHO there is a hardware failure problem.  My printer that was working fine has now stopped being recognized.  If I plug it into another usb port it will work (sometimes).  I know that my phone works in Peppermint 3 so I live booted Peppermint 3 onto the laptop and it won't recognize it.  Just plugged my phone into my netbook with Peppermint 3 and it works a treat.  I recently asked in another thread for advice on buying a cheap Computer as my laptop seems to be failing.  I now think that that is the case.  Many error messages and peripherals not working properly, overheating and slow performance.

I have a Laptop which has sat unused for a couple of years.  I am now going to upgrade the memory and install Peppermint 3.

Thanks for all the help. 

Yes Mark, I was wrong it was 12.04 not 12.10, sorry.

Well yeh there's definitely sommat freaky going on as you SHOULD have that logo .. so you can select Unity 2D (fallback DE) etc.

Good luck with the other lappy :)

Well, an update. Installed Pepermint 3 on the said knackered laptop and works a treat. Phones recognized straight away. This will keep me going untill I save some pennies up for new kit.
Dont know why it did not work on the live version though.

Good to hear .. probably some kind of regression after 12.04 then.
