    Android MTP Connection problem

    Hy
    I have bought an Acer S500 whit android 4.0.4 and i want to transfer files from pc to the phone
    I found a tutorial how to make it to work in OMGUBUNTU http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/12/h...or-file-access
    At the and after restart i must enter commands

    Code:
    echo “alias android-connect=\”mtpfs -o allow_other /media/GalaxyNexus\”" >> ~/.bashrc
    
    echo “alias android-disconnect=\”fusermount -u /media/GalaxyNexus\”" >> ~/.bashrc
    
    source ~/.bashrc
    and after the last command i get this error

    Code:
    No command '“alias' found, did you mean:
     Command '0alias' from package 'zeroinstall-injector' (universe)
    “alias: command not found
    “alias android-disconnect=”fusermount -u /media/Acer”
    No command '“alias' found, did you mean:
     Command '0alias' from package 'zeroinstall-injector' (universe)
    “alias: command not found
    “alias android-disconnect=”fusermount -u /media/Acer”

    I find it easier to just use PTP

    try typing the commands, rather than cut and paste... Websites tend to screw up the quote marks

    " or “

    Those echo commands, append lines to the ~/.bashrc file every time you run them.

    If you have already executed those commands the first time with the wrong “ character, then the .bashrc file will already have the wrong lines.

    I suspect you will first need to remove those wrong lines from the .bashrc file. Or... it's probably easiest to just edit your .bashrc file and make sure the last lines look like this (with the correct " characters) - being careful not to change or remove anything else in the file:


    Code:
    alias android-connect="mtpfs -o allow_other /media/GalaxyNexus"
    alias android-disconnect="fusermount -u /media/GalaxyNexus"

    Re: Android MTP Connection problem

    Something else to throw into the mix. Why are you using the mtpfs at all?

    According to http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pho...articleContent your phone should connect to any computer as a simple storage device like a thumb drive, just connect your micro USB cable.

    MTPFS is used for Samsung Galaxy phones and others which don't connect as a storage device, but connect as a read-only storage with limited access to certain media files.

    Re: Android MTP Connection problem

    Connecting the handset to a PC is a simple case of plugging it in with a micro USB to USB cable. Once done, it mounts itself as a drive and you can just drag and drop media on and off the phone.
    If you're using a microSD card then another option is to remove it from the phone and plug that into the PC, which again enables you to access it like a hard drive.
    .bashrc should be in your home folder on the phone or /home/heavyd , or /media/Acer .

    This is the file from /home, in /media/Acer there is no file

    Code:
    # ~/.bashrc: executed by bash(1) for non-login shells.

    # Alias definitions.
    # You may want to put all your additions into a separate file like

    # See /usr/share/doc/bash-doc/examples in the bash-doc package.
    
    if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then

    # this, if it's already enabled in /etc/bash.bashrc and /etc/profile
    # sources /etc/bash.bashrc).
    if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ] && ! shopt -oq posix; then
        . /etc/bash_completion
    fi

    P.S. Yes under windows itś like a simple mas storage device but under ubuntu is the problem while nothing popping up when pluging in!
