I have a Nexus 5. Ubuntu detects and mounts it fine, and I have no problem in transferring files or any other action. However, it does show up as an "Unnamed Device" in some places (Ubuntu 14.04, both cases):
- Nemo (with Gnome Shell)
- Nautilus (with Unity, fresh install)
How do I assign a name to it?
I recall seeing the same behaviour on older versions as well, so I think this is not specific to 14.04. And it also happens with other devices: https://askubuntu.com/questions/370551/ubuntu-13-10-nexus-7-is-mounted-as-an-unnamed-device
