I have a desktop and laptop both running ubuntu 16.04. My android phone is configured as 'MTP' mode when connecting. When connecting the phone to my laptop, ubuntu displays a nice icon on unity launch bar and an entry within nautilus -- it's a happy day scenario.
However, when connecting that android phone to my desktop, nothing happens.
here is some facts when connecting to desktop

It seems to me that my android phone is detected as a valid usb device, but mtp is not connected.
I actually have re-install linux kernal as well, still no luck. Any idea what I should do ?
