The MTP specification doesn't support the basic open/read/write/close operations that are required to implement normal file access on Linux - it only provides upload/download for files, and that's what the MTP backend implements. So Nautilus will copy files just fine, but as soon as you try to use an application that doesn't explicitly account for the ...

My recommend is to use ...

I had the same problem but I solved it a few seconds ago after reading a post on another forum. It seems like the MTP option somehow got unchecked (not by me!), maybe when installing the latest Android update… Settings → Storage → ⋮ → USB-connection to computer → MTP media device ☑ Note that I run Android in Swedish, so the line above is only a ...

I was once looking at doing this myself, but it wasn't guarenteed to work, depending on what model and spec of your tablet is. XDA Developers forums had quite a few devs trying out different custom ROMs to get Ubuntu to install and very few were successful, so you may want to head over there and read through what they tried. Since Ubuntu has already ...

Though this question is not at all related to ubuntu... Have a look at this Mac spoofer for andorid. It allows you to change MAC address of your rooted android phone till you reboot your device. Also I don't think you can turn on both wifi and hotspot at same time in your laptop. You can connect LAN cable to your laptop and then turn on hotspot!

I too had the problem that my "asus padfone infinity" was not mounted through mtp. (adb worked though). Solution was to connect it through one of the USB3 Ports of my thinkpad instead of a usb2 port. Looks like the USB2 port is not recognized as usb2, or are devicenames for usb2 "usb1"? syslog when connecting to USB2 Port: Feb 21 13:59:55 t530 kernel: ...

Instead of trying to mount the device with mtpfs, I found this solution: Install sshelper on the device (no rooted device needed, available from google play market) In my WLAN the device is called "android".

If this were me I would try: A different cable. They're surprisingly fragile things with no internal redundancy. Mass production has done nothing to enhance their longevity. Most people have about a thousand of these cluttering up their houses so it should be a simple swap. A different port. They can break and internal connectors can fall out. A different ...

Yeah with the desktop as a live image on your phone you mean. No it was never made available for download. Essentially they tried pitching it only to Oems (phone-makers).

So you can handle the protocols needed. Use ifconfig to ...

You can add to your $PATH variable directly like this: export PATH=$PATH:/the/dir/you/want/to/add Then, edit /etc/environment. An alternate method would be to still export as I showed above, but then to add the entry to your ~/.bashrc file (if using BASH shell). echo "export PATH=$PATH:/the/dir/you/want/to/add" >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc ...

I know that this is not the place where to make Android Recommendations but the original question is about an Android APP.
