Hello I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1(Android 4.1.2) and Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS 32-bit installed on my laptop. I added the following ppa https://launchpad.net/~langdalepl/+archive/gvfs-mtp and did an upgrade. After a restart when I plug in my tablet into the USB port of my computer it detected and mounted it.

However, after a restart it does not mount it automatically and by the way files on the device cannot be edited. Is there a way to edit these files and automate the process? By the way where does the Ubuntu mount the device in the file system? By the way do I have to unmount the device before disconnecting it?

Edit: Files inside the device cannot be copied from one directory into another.
