Re: Connect to Motorola RAZR HD?
Android 3 and Android 4 devices don't mount on Ubuntu 12.10 and below without some hacking around.
I couldn't get it to work even with the hacking around. Installing Windows software in Wine will not help.
In the end, I downloaded a program onto the Nexus that sets up an FTP server. I connected my Nexus to my wifi network, and used the Ubuntu computer to access the FTP server running on the Nexus (File > Connect to Server... in Nautilus). This works pretty well.
Alternatively, I've heard that Ubuntu 13.04 fixes the problems with MTP support and will mount Android 3.x and 4.x devices out-of-the-box.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
