How do you mount a Motorola Xoom in Ubuntu to sync your music? I recently purchased one, and unlike my other Android devices, it doesn't seem to want to mount. I tried using a Windows computer to sync the music but the services aren't as well refined as what we see in Banshee (especially with metadata and album art).
Well, it's necessary litle tweaking to enable it, here we go!
Enabling Motorola Xoom as storage device in Ubuntu
First you will need to install mtpfs package to the whole process work.
After you have installed it you need to tweak a little to Ubuntu recognize Xoom as a USB device.
Save the changes and close it, open a new terminal to changes make effect and then you need to make the mount point and take ownership of it.
At this point you already can mount it by typing
Now add the mount point to your fstab.
You're almost there, now open fuse.conf.
Save the changes, close it and go on to the last step!
You now just need to add your user to the fuse group.
Sure that you won't write "rodrigo", but your username, OK? Just Save the changes and close it.
Finally ( many steps, yeah? ), Restart your machine! Now when you look at your Places in Nautilus there will be a drive named "xoom" and you will just need to plug-in your tablet and play with the files, to unmout just right click on the icon and select to Unmout.
Really, I made my best to summarize the steps, hope very much it will work for everybody!

In Honeycomb, Android switched from USB Mass Storage to MTP as the protocol for transferring files.
Try installing the package mtpfs (you may do so from the terminal), and make sure that in your preferences for Banshee you have MTP support checked in the extensions list.
Should that not work and you have to get more in depth, you can find all the information you need at this website.
I found Rodrigo's instructions allowed me to mount my Android 3.1 Xoom on 64-bit Kubuntu 11.04. I just have 2 comments ...
