I can access my Android phone in Files (Nautilus), but how do I access it in Krusader?

I can type 'mtp:/' in the Location Bar, but I get this error:

"Error: Protocol not supported by Krusader: mtp:/"

What is wrong?

    Have you tried mtp://? You haven't stated what version of Ubuntu you are using, but for me MTP is mounted via fuse, so you just navigate to the correct mount point.

  • Hi! Using "mtp:", "mtp:/" or "mtp://" makes no difference. I use Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Where do I find "fuse" and "the correct mount point"?

With the help of Where are MTP mounted devices located in the filesystem? I discovered that my Android phone gets mounted here: /var/run/user/1000/gvfs/ or here: /run/user/1000/gvfs/ - problem solved!

  • Not working for me: I do get an MTP entry in that folder, but Krusader can't open it (it's not a folder)
