comment How can I sync music from Ubuntu 14.04 to my Ubuntu Phone (bq Aquaris)?
@Frederik - sync'ing to a SD Card is a common issue - its not a libmtp issue but an app issue. For the BQ phone, this question has been asked - askubuntu.com/questions/601942/…

comment how to play BBC radios music live on rhythmbox after BBC stops WMA streams (februar 2015)
@CedricKnight - ubuntu 15.04 plays these streams ok - probably because it has the latest gstreamer libraries.

comment Ubuntu doesnt see my Kindle (4th generation) as mtp device
Marc - according to this bug report on the libmtp website, your kindle isnt an mtp device - are you sure you were using mtp? Try switching on mass-storage on the kindle. sourceforge.net/p/libmtp/bugs/518

comment Accessing tty1 through 6 takes unreasonably long
@Grant - check that you havent pinned using an old kernel - if in doubt, from grub make sure you are booting from the 3.16 kernel.
