As you may already know, managing file via MTP on linux is really really pain in the butt, even using gmtp i ever post before, … as times goes by, that’s not the real problem solver. The file transfer speed suddenly became the last thing i worried when the application is behaving like jerks and constantly throws warning errors during copying a bunch of files from or to the device. Was trying to understand and debug, … very time consuming … and finally, I think this is enough for this bullshit and uninstall it … forget gmtp.
Almost given up on this MTP shit and just used adb to push things over. There are no better solution or alternatives so far, until today, i stop by on this blog, gathering info and continue to this awesome gomtpfs recompile and packaging on ppa by andrew webupd8. This is very good and reliable mtp mounter !! Tried it on my Nexus7 and Galaxy Nexus both are on 4.2.1 cm10.1 and PA, it works flawlesly and very fast. Thanks Andrew 🙂
I don’t have time to recompile it for klixs with libmtp-1.1.5 (not yet), so this time this is only a share. You may read the details explanation on andrew’s blog, he explain much much better than me 🙂 i only share how to install this gomtpfs in short for my own note :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install go-mtpfs
To mount the mtp device type this at konsole :
To unmount the mtp device :
fusermount -u /media/MyAndroid
I don’t need the unity launcher since i’m on KDE, but if you need it … andrew already make that one … great!! I only create .desktop file to execute that command for easy launch.
