|Does google have a File Transfer application for linux - To transfer files from Android 4.0 devices???||Santeno||2/12/12 8:19 PM|
Device: GalaxyNexus & Transformer Prime
Carrier: not applicable
Country / Language: US/English
OS / Browser / build number (if applicable): Mac OS, /windows & Linux Mint
I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and an Asus Transformer Prime, both running IVCS. I understand that with ICS, Google dropped USB file transfer support and replaced it with MTP. Windows reads everything with no problem. MacOS required that I install Google's Android File Transfer Tool (http://www.android.com/filetransfer/). However for Linux there seems to be nothing. Yes there is a convoluted hack I've seen posted on line, but you would figure that since Android is a linux based OS and since Google is big on Linux, that they would have made a version of the Android File Transfer MTP tool for linux.
I get it that Google Never replies to these posts (at least they never have since I've been reading), but if anyone has any connections at google, please bring this ridiculous omission up with them.

Have you looked at gMTP? I also read about someone installing an SSH server on the phone and just using SCP/SFTP to transfer files back/forth. Hopefully the Android File Transfer app is released on Linux though some day.

I have not tried gMTP. I'll give it a shot to night and report back.

gMTP WAS working for me, but now can not see my Galaxy Nexus. libmtp can detect it with no problem, but have not been able to connect using any of the GUI interfaces. Have tried gMTP and now Clementine with no luck.

I just thought, what would happen if I switch to PTP? ... did it with the USB cable plugged in and got an instant pop-up window in Ubuntu asking me what to do, so I said "open folder" and just tragged a folder inside the "Galaxy" drive with no issues :)

B. A. What Ubuntu release are you using? It didn't work for me on 10

Moi aussi, j'ai le même problème et c'est tout de même très fâcheux pour un produit aussi cher d'avoir une compatibilité aussi pauvre !!!
Aucune compatibilité avec GNU/Linux pour un produit Androïd... on marche sur la tête !

Same here, have a Galaxy Nexus and Iconia both running ICS.
I haven't tried gMTP because I'm running Lucid LTS and gMTP isn't in that repo, which means I have to make the application which is always a PITA. Where is the app from Google for transferring files on Linux systems?
Won't somebody please think of the penguin.

I tried switching my Galaxy Nexus over to PTP last night, and I couldn't even get F-spot to recognize my phone as a camera. It did popup in my music player, but I wasn't able to do anything with it.
