so after playing around a bit i finally got it working, NOTE this requires compiling from source if you are not confortable doing it then don't

First of the libmtp that is installed apparently doesn't work with out S3 so we are going to compile a version from source that is.

First off install git ( if it isnt installed)

Open your terminal

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install git


then we will grab the sources for lbmtp

Code: Select all
git clone git://libmtp.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/libmtp/libmtp


next we will configure it and install it

Code: Select all
cd libmtp
./autogen.sh  (answering yes to any questions)
./configure --prefix=/usr/
make
sudo make install


ok now the new libmtp is installed we can install jmtpfs

i won't reinvent the wheel here so install these dependicies

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libfuse-dev libmagic-dev


Download http://research.jacquette.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/jmtpfs-0.4.tar.gz

Extract the file to your home directory

open your terminal again and follow these commands

Code: Select all
./configure
make
sudo make install


now jmtpfs is installed :D

now for the moment of truth

create a directory in your home folder called "mtp"

open up your terminal

to mount the phone type
Code: Select all
jmtpfs ~/mtp

to unmount when your done
Code: Select all
fusermount -u ~/mtp


not ideal but it gets the job done, i really suggest buying a microsd and a card reader it is a lot easier
i hope this helps

Totally Awesome!! It is fully functional. This does not integrate into Banshee (my preferred player) or Rhythmbox, but is satisfactory. if someone can figure out how to integrate into a music player preferably banshee, I would be grateful.

Thanks Again for the help. The answer has brought me to a point where Windows has all but been formatted from my HD, which is quickly approaching!

OK, when I posted the above reply, I was using Kies, I didn’t even notice there was a 2nd page with a post from
Hawks-SOAD
I followed the instructions, and Bang! It worked. Not only does it work, but I have complete access to my phone, every single file within, and its fully integrated into Banshee and Rhythmbox.

Noting like a knowledgeable team to provide solid support. Thank You Very Much Hawks SODA. Indeed!

Thank you everyone else for supplying such well thought out answers, and not giving any unnecessary remarks.

Kies also works, and has a nice and user friendly interface.
Thanks to:
Pam
For the Kies information!!

Let me say again, how grateful I am for the support.

OK, now that I've got this whole thing working, and have also found out that no other description on the Internet works as well I'm trying to take it a step further.

I would like to create a script (or whatever necessary) containing the mounting and unmounting commands and create a unity launcher icon with right click and there is an option to either mount or dismount the phone. (obviously running the correct command from above in the created script) is this possible, and if so is it easy enough to explain? And... If its easy enough, can someone attempt an explanation.

I love this stuff... I spend day and night screwing with my Linux machines, short of my days work... and when I'm stuck, I can always depend on the folks at Ultimate Edition Forum to provide superior in-depth help and support. Thanks Again.

Picture of such an idea, taked from another website, same idea different commmands in the script. thisone uses go-mtpfs which does not sych with banshee or any other music player. so i wanted to create my own with the commands from within this thread...

YEP.

You want to mount an Android?

Plug it in.

XAN its an android 4.0 problem... Most devices are made to use the MTP protocol instead of ums mode which is basically USB mode.

Its fixed on 13.04 by default. For previous versions

There is a ppa on webupd8 that makes it mount easily. Will post a how to later in the evening.

I have never had any issues with any of my Droids. Seriously, the only one that has presented any problem whatsoever is my Samsung. As far as 4.0 that could be it, but none of my other ICS have presented any issues at all.


I always hear about Android not being able to connect to Linux and it's crazy, I used my Androids almost exclusively to set up Linux OS until I could get my POS Cisco dongles Windows Wireless drivers set up. That was over months and at least 30 different flavors of Linux and about 10 different Androids.

I mean..if it wasn't for Android, I wouldn't be here. It was using Android that made me get on a Windows PC and think "Wow..this is horrible." I had to learn Linux after that.
