    Honeycomb and MTP


    Hi all,
    I have problems with connecting my Samsung Galaxy Tab to my Ubuntu 12.04 via usb. The tablet has Honeycomb (3.2) installed.

    I have followed a tutorial and installed mtpfs things. When I mount via
    Code:
    mtpfs -o allow_other /media/Tablet
    , I can't even ls the directory.

    When I just connect the device, it takes it as a digital audio player and suggests to open via music player or file manager. When I open it via Nautilus, I can go 1-directory-layer deep only, can't see subdirectories of highest level directories in the device.

    Is there a real solution for this connection thing? Or should I try the FTP way people mention?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    When you connect an Android device to a Linux or other (Windows) system, you should have an option on the device on how you want it to be presented to the host. If not, then you may need to go to the settings menu on the tablet.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
