Running 15.10 Wily. Installed using the minimal ISO (network install) and selected Xubuntu core. After installing procinfo and running ls_usb, I can see the device when it's plugged in

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd Galaxy (MTP)

However, the device cannot be found to interact with it and mount the filesystems. I tried following Will's instructions in this thread here, but when I reached step six,

sudo mtpfs -o allow_other /media/mtp/phone

I get the following

    Listing raw device(s)

the first time. I tried a second time after dis- and then re-connecting the device again and got

Listing raw device(s)
Device 0 (VID=04e8 and PID=6860) is a Samsung Galaxy models (MTP).
   Found 1 device(s):
   Samsung: Galaxy models (MTP) (04e8:6860) @ bus 1, dev 12
Attempting to connect device
Listing File Information on Device with name: Garm

Now, entering t the final command

ls -lt /media/mtp/phone/Card

returns an error

ls: cannot access /media/mtp/Android: Transport endpoint is not connected

(I replaced 'phone' with 'Android' in the folder name and commands to better fit my usual naming scheme; it still says 'phone' above because I simply copy->pasted from the other thread)

Please advise.

Further information:: Following another thread which suggested the problem might lie with udev, I attempted this solution, to be greeted with the following error

adduser: The group `fuse' does not exist.

when attempting to add myself to the group. Should I have such a group?

In order to avoid conflicting 'solutions' (and keep the install as clean as possible), I have since removed

  • /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
  • mtpfs, mtp-tools (apt-get purge)
  • the the /media and /media/mtp folders we created (one was busy and had to be deleted after reboot)

So we should be starting fresh, having undone reversed my earlier attempts.
