I recently got myself a spanking new Nokia 5310 (xpressmusic) mobile phone, which uses a MicroSD card and is connectable through a Micro-USB cable.
I dualboot Intrepid and Windows XP (for those pesky gaming needs), and run an Asus EEE 900 on the side dualbooting EEEUbuntu and Windows XP.
In XP on both machines, I'm very much able to see the phone as a regular USB mass storage device. No funny business.
In EEEUbuntu, the phone is instantly recognized and mounted as an USB mass storage device. Again, no funny business.
However, my Intrepid install refuses to play along. I get an incredibly annoying error message, as follows:
This error message only comes up the first time I try to plug the device in after a reboot, irrelevant of user login etc. In kde-hal-device-manager (which i installed because I could not find anything similar for Gnome) I can see the phone just fine.Unable to mount Nokia Mobile Phones Nokia 5310 XpressMusic.
Failed to get folder list: -1: Unspecified error
I have purged and reinstalled HAL (and all associated packages). No change. Since the DBUS package is tied up in all kinds of packages I'd rather not have to reinstall later, I've only tried aptitude reinstall:ing it. No change.
This is incredibly annoying. According to google, noone has EVER gotten the same error message I got. Not one hit. Not only is it annoying, but it's kind of ridiculous.
In any case, I'm starting to wonder if it could have anything to do with DBUS. I may have managed to fsck up some config file or another. I have no idea which one or if I'm even on the right track.
Any ideas? Please? Pretty please?
