    No permission on my mobile phone

    Hi there!
    I have a mobile phone and I've never experienced any major issues with it. Now, it's a disaster for me. After making a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.10 I cannot make any changes on my mobile device. I get an error message that I've no permission. What I've changed is that I've made something around 7 partitions - maybe that's the cause? I've tried to install fresh Ubuntu 12.04 but that didn't helped so I revered back to 12.10.

    As always, all problems began with an update...

    What method did you use to install Ubuntu on the phone? What kind of phone?

    How did you manage to create 7 partitions? I'm assuming some of those are logical partitions? Can you show us the output from gparted?

    Are you saying:
    1) You installed 12.10 to your mobile phone -- which has seven partitions on it -- and now you can't do anything on the phone?
    2) You installed 12.10 to your desktop -- which has seven partitions on it -- and now you can't access the phone from your desktop?

    Very different questions -- very different problems.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    I've installed Ubuntu on my desktop computer and I have read-only permission on my mobile.

    What phone is it? How do you access it? (USB, bluetooth). Does it show up as a 'mass storage' device or is it an MTP device?

    Connect the phone, access it's data and post the output of:

    sudo dmesg | tail -n20
    linux-git/fs/super.c: "Self-destruct in 5 seconds. Have a nice day...\n",
