    Lightbulb [How-To] Connect newest Android devices using MTP in KUbuntu 12.04 LTS

    After struggeling quite a time to get my China mobile working I want to share my experiences. This is according to my 12.04 installation. I am not sure if you will need all or less files to get it done. I for one needed all these steps and took me days to find out.


    1. The kio-mtp file was missing:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install kio-mtp
    2. Now we need some more essential files:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libmtp-common mtp-tools libmtp-dev libmtp-runtime libmtp9 mtpfs
    3. Update of MTP Pakage (my device was not working with older ones)

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/libm.../libmtp/1.1.9/

    Download this file, Extract,

    Change into this folder. Inside you need to run:

    Code:
    ./configure
    then
    Code:
    make
    Code:
    sudo checkinstall
    If you have not done already please install "checkinstall" - so it is easier to remove these packages later on.

    You will get a libmtp_1.1.9-1_amd64.deb file which you should install by klicking on it.


    4. We have to add udev rules:

    Added rule for device in "/lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules".:

    Code:
    # Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 (MTP)
    #ATTR{idVendor}=="2717",  ATTR{idProduct}=="ff18", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660",  GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
    Code:
    # Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 (MTP+ADB)
    ATTR{idVendor}=="2717",  ATTR{idProduct}=="ff48", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660",  GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"


    The numbers 2717 und ff48 / ff18 you will find out by using "lsusb" or from "sudo mtp-detect | grep idVendor" AND "mtp-detect | grep idProduct")

    Fill these numbers in according to your mobile!!!


    Code:
    sudo service udev restart
    No reboot needed.


    Some general things:

    a) take a good USB cable. Not the cheapest one
    b) insert your mobile into a direct USB port - no hub in between. (Energy problem)
    c) you have to switch your mobile into the "mtp" mode. (It might be in PTP mode!!)


    Good luck!
