How to access phone ?

#1

Post by ychaouche » Mon Jul 22, 2019 12:17 pm

Dear MX,

I have connected my android phone to mx linux but can't access it through gmtp or see it in thunar. This is what I see in syslog :

Code: Select all

Tried to plug the phone on all 4 front usb ports with similar (error ?) messages. Any help appreciated :)

Perhaps the cable and/or connector is broken.

FWIW, it's probably better to start an FTP server on the phone and use that to transfer stuff 'cos it will be quicker than a cable.

I use https://f-droid.org/en/packages/be.ppareit.swiftp_free, it's GPL'd :happy:

Airmore is my weapon of choice if I want to do some simple things like transfer a handful of albums, read and write SMS using a real keyboard etc, or even stream a live-video in near real-time from your phone's camera to a big screen if you have no other option and no cables are needed.

It works best when both devices are on the same network/AP because there is no need to route the connection using the internet, but that option is available too if you sign up and sign in.

Basically, it connects through wireless to your phone and creates a mock android screen on your desktop from which you can perform quite a variety of functions. Airmore is available from the play store and is free of charge. Learn about it at the address below

http://web.airmore.com/

Install and run airAirmore, allow it to access media and apps on your device, then on your computer, simply open http://web.airmore.com/ and it will display a QR code. On your phone, click scan to connect, aim the camera at your screen and in a second or two, you'll be up and running.

If you're solid on using a cable only, depending on your phone make, model and android version, you'll probably need to change the settings for USB connections before your phone will show up in Thunar, or before you can use the preloaded idevicemounter. (click the MX menu button and type idev, or phone and it'll come up)

That's my case. I get this notification every time I connect with a cable. If left on charging it doesn't show up in any file manager.

I have an old Galaxy S5 with Android 5.0 on it, and under Settings/System I have Developer Options. If I enable USB Debugging there, my phone always gets connected as though it was an external hard drive and it shows up in Thunar's Devices pane on the left. I'm not sure but I may have had to enable developer options somewhere else in the settings before it was available, but that was years ago so I don't remember for sure. A web search will probably tell the OP how to do that for his phone and Android version (if they haven't taken that away in the newer versions.)

Shouldn't the phone at least display a dialog when it is connected with the PC ? I also tried on windows PCs to no avail (developer mode USB debugging on with mtp and ptp)

Please run MX Tools/Quick System Info, then right-click paste into a reply. (Quick System Info automatically copies the information to the clipboard and formats it properly for the forum so all you have to do is paste it) and also post your phone's brand, model number and Android version. Thanks.

You need to change it to file or photo transfer. Charging only turns off all communication

All I did on Debian 10 was install gvfs-backends and my G5 showed up in thunar with file transfer set on the phone.
