How to browse your Android smartphone on Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Antonio Portuesi @ 3:51 pm

Ubuntu 13, is the ultimate distro from Canonical. Nice platform, pretty interface. By the way, mounting an Android smartphone in Ubuntu could be tricky, but luckily there’s a FUSE filesystem called Go-mtpfs, which definitely works. Check this out before getting headache pain!

Firstly connect the smartphone via USB, unlock it and then instruct your finger to open Terminal and hit some key like this:

user@pc:~$ go-mtpfs /media/MyAndroid

until or unless you need your Android smartphone connected to your Raring Ringtail box don’t type:

user@pc:~$ fusermount -u /media/MyAndroid
