Ubuntu 13.04 comes with MTP support to access files on newer Android devices. My Nexus 10 works OK: after plugging in, I can access the N10 files with Nautilus, and I can copy from and to the device. Evince will open PDF files right from the device, but some applications fail to open files directly from the device like gedit or libreoffice. Gedit says something like:
Cannot open file mtp://[usb:001,009]/65537/5823/5824
I guess MTP is integrated at the gvfs level, so should not all gvfs-enabled applications be able to access the MTP device? Why evince but not gedit?
I know that MTP could be mounted with fuse, but it would be nice if it worked with regular applications from Nautilus just like sftp:// or smb://.
