How do i mount my nexus 4 to my laptop running 14.04. I need a method that mount and unmounts the nexus 4 like how windows does it. I don't want complicated methods. Thanks!!
Go "Settings" -> "Storage" -> Upper right corner button -> "USB computer connection" -> Check "Media device (MTP)".
Connect phone to computer by USB cable.
On the phone once it is connected to the pc press, "turn on USB storage".. then on the computer it will be mounted which you can view by the filebrowser. Or it might appear on your Desktop as a mounted drive.
