I have problems when connecting Android tablets using MTP.
I connected to my notebook (openSUSE 12.1, KDE 4.7) several Android
phones (Motorola, Samsung, HTC, original ROMs or CyanogenMod, Android
2.X). When connecting those phones, the phone ask in which mode it
should be connected to the computer. I choose as an USB mass storage
device and it works fine. No problem here.
But when I connect Samsung tablet (Android 2.2), it asks nothing and
tries connect using Samsung Kies. As I saw Samusng Kies on Windows,
it is... IMHO very bad software. :-) And "of course" no Linux
support. As far as I know, it uses MTP (media transfer protocol). I
see it in Dolphin, I can access the storages, but I see only
top-level folders and I see them as empty. I can not copy anything
there or to computer. Dolphin does not complain at all, it is just
loading folder contents and times out... So it does not work. There
seems to by no possibility to connect is as "ordinary" USB flesh
disk. Similar situation is when I connect ASUS Transformer (Android
4.0). In its settings I can choose connecting as MTP or camera (PTP).
Connecting as camera seems to work. When choosing MTP, I see no new
device in Dolphin, nothing. Dmesg says: [ 9405.104385] usb 2-1:

According to Wikipedia, Dolphin should support MTP, but for me it
does not work. :-( Does MTP (with Android devices) work for You in
openSUSE (with KDE)? Do I need any special driver, ...? What do I do
wrong? :-) Thank You in advance,

Does this thread help?

Thank You for the link, unfortunately it does not work. :-( I tried all
variants of mentioned udev rules, but with no success... It seams as easiest
way to run SSH server on my notebook a connect using SFTP from Transformer to
notebook over wi-fi. But often I need to connect directly...
Good evening,
