My Android device won't connect. I've never got MTP to work, I've only ever got it to connect by USB mass storage, which was how it was working most recently. But now, since 13.04, it seems that option has been taken away entirely.
I need to be able to connect by USB to transfer files.
When I plug in the device I get an error that says
Unable to open MTP device '[usb:002,003]':
After some web searching, I found that I might need a program called
go-mtpfs, so I tried that, and it failed:
$ go-mtpfs /media/MyAndroid 2013/07/16 16:41:43 compiled against libmtp 1.1.5 Device 0 (VID=04e8 and PID=685e) is a Samsung Galaxy Y. 2013/07/16 16:41:43 found device Samsung: Galaxy Y (04e8:685e) @ bus 2, dev 3 : LIBMTP PANIC: Unable to find interface & endpoints of device 2013/07/16 16:41:43 rdev.open failed: open: open returned nil
How do I get my USB device to just connect, automatically, like it used to?
