I have personally tested this.


This method didn't work for me, however, I did have success from the link ryanvade gave me. It was very similar to the method I started out with, but with some added info. It shows up in my dolphin file manager. I did try thunar on your method too. It's probably just my phone. I have a rooted (Did it myself on Ubuntu) LG Motion MS770 with ICS 4.0.4

The adduser was already in place because of my previous efforts, but this just worked like a champ

sudo apt-get install golang fuse git-core libmtp-dev libfuse-dev
sudo adduser $USER fuse
mkdir /tmp/go
GOPATH=/tmp/go go get github.com/hanwen/go-mtpfs
sudo mv /tmp/go/bin/go-mtpfs /usr/bin/
mkdir ~/MyAndroid

Now, go-mtpfs is installed. To mount your Android device, run these commands:

go-mtpfs ~/MyAndroid &

Edit-forgot to post the unmount command which is

fusermount -u ~/MyAndroid

This method adds a folder in your home directory named MyAndroid and as far as I can tell works with all file managers as I have tried with 3. Thanks for all the help and to ryanvade for the successful link. :D

PC's, Phones. All finicky creatures of tech. LOL This is the method I used on Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit and it worked fine, but was not the same as the one that worked with Ultimate Edition on my specific phone and is what I originally tried on Ultimate Edition



Install Go-mtpfs in Ubuntu


Update: Gvfs has been updated in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, bringing a new MTP backend which allows users to access Android 4.0 devices which do not support the USB Mass Storage. So this should work out of the box with Raring.


Go-mtpfs is available in the WebUpd8 Unstable PPA, for Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10 and 12.04. Add the PPA and install it using the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install go-mtpfs

To also install the custom Unity Launcher for Go-mtpfs which lets you mount or unmount the Android device from the Unity Launcher, use the command below:
sudo apt-get install go-mtpfs-unity
