    Android Mounting problem Ubuntu 12.04

    I'm attempting to get my Android (4.1.2) to mount on Ubuntu 12.04. I've tried following tutorials (http://www.webupd8.org/2012/12/how-t...-go-mtpfs.html or http://askubuntu.com/questions/25787...-android-phone), but they seem relevant to situations where the Android is already recognized by the file system.

    In my case, the Android never even shows up in the file system.

    I do see it when I type the command lsusb. "Bus 001 Device 006: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9100 Phone [Galaxy S II]"

    But I don't know how to make it appear in the file system. Any help is appreciated.

    This is how I did it with my Acer A210 tablet, though I haven't bothered to check recently whether it still works as it did.

    Install mtpfs package on your machine.
    Attach tablet to ubuntu 12.04 with USB cable.
    Run
    Code:
    lsusb
    Note line like:-
    Code:
    Bus 001 Device 006: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9100 Phone [Galaxy S II]
    Disconnect USB cable.
    Create UDEV rule file
    Code:
    gksudo leafpad /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
    Add content to the new file:-
    Code:
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666"
    Create a mountpoint and change owner to yourself.
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/Galaxy
        sudo chown rangerk:rangerk /media/Galaxy
    Add mountpoint to /etc/fstab with following text:-
    Code:
    # mount point for Galaxy
        mtpfs     /media/Galaxy     fuse     user,noauto,allow_other      0      0
    Modify fuse.conf. Uncomment user_allow_other.
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/fuse.conf
    Look for
    Code:
    #user_allow_other
    and remove the #.
    Add yourself to the fuse group.
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/group
    Look for the line starting with "fuse" and put your username at the end of that line (if it's not already there).

    Thanks for this comprehensive list. It seems I'm having package / dependency problems I'll need to resolve before I can try this.
