    Default opensuse sees android system but nothing whats in it

    hi

    when connecting android tablet opensuse sees device as camera, I can see folders but there is nothing in it. Can these be a issue with mounting point or am I missing something else?

    When I mount my Android phone on my Linux system, there's an application
    on the phone to tell the system to present itself as a USB storage device
    - you might need to do something similar with your tablet.

    Code:
     # 70-motorola-xoom.rules
        # Put in this file in /etc/udev/rule.d/
        #ATTRS{idVendor}=="22b8" , ATTRS{idProduct}=="70a8" , ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="motorola_xoom" , ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_ICON_NAME}="tablet-motorola-xoom"
        #ATTRS{idVendor}=="22b8" , ATTRS{idProduct}=="70a9" , ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="motorola_xoom" , ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_ICON_NAME}="tablet-motorola-xoom"
    
        ATTRS{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="70a8", ENV{ID_GPHOTO2}="1", ENV{GPHOTO2_DRIVER}="proprietary", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", MODE="0664", GROUP="audio"

        # Motorola Xoom (ID 1)
    
        #ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="70a8", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_GPHOTO2}="1", ENV{GPHOTO2_DRIVER}="proprietary", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1", MODE="664", GROUP="audio"
    
        # Motorola Xoom (ID 2)
    
        #ATTR{i
    mounted with the mtpfs -o allow_other,
    and when I plug in my tablet I can see device as "camera" in most recent devices.
    I am not sure what is the proper name for that so I am providing screen-shot:

    when I go to properites on any folder on my tablet (recognized as camera?) I can see that:
    /MTP Device@usb:002,005/store_00010001 (camera)

    is it bad mounting point?

    I have the xoom working using the mtpfs -o allow_other /xoom, you need to create the directory
    /xoom with primissions set for your user can rw. The rule file is used to access the xoom with programs like dolphin but all the directories are empty. Mounting with the mtpfs command I'm able to see the directories and files. Reading and writing work. The difference may be I'm using tumbleweed which may have a updated lib that works. Also, are you in the audio group? If you notice the end of the attrs lines group=audio.
    I'm using the same rules file from the mot web site.

    yes I am in audio group and the /xoom folder has 777 permissions.
    when I connect the xoom new device pops up and I can browse the xoom folders but there is no data there and I can't write any files there.
    When I am mounting xoom with the mtpfs -s -o allow_other /xoom
    I am getting that message:
    Code:
    linux-c6ea:/home/andre/Dokumenty # mtpfs -s -o allow_other /xoom
    fuse: bad mount point `/xoom': Transport endpoint is not connected
    mount point? maybe some other roules has effect on mounting xoom?
    here is the ls /etc/udev/rules.d reuslt:
    Code:
    linux-c6ea:/home/andre/Dokumenty # ls /etc/udev/rules.d/
    40-xend.rules     56-hpmud_support.rules             70-persistent-net.rules

    Hi Jim,

    Android 3.0 doesn't do USB mass storage any more like on the phones up till 2.3 at least (my phone also has Android), the tablets use MTP. I've got the same problem with my xoom. Do you use a specific app on your phone to mount it in Linux or do you use the normal USB mass storage that unmounts the SD card from the phone and mounts it onto the computer?

    I reloaded OpenSuse 11.4 and was able to redo the configuration I used to access the Xoom.

    1) Installed 11.4 and fully updated to the current level.

    2) Installed fuse-devel

    3) Enabled the packman repo

    4) Installed mad and id3tags from the packman repo

    5) downloaded mtpfs_0.9.orig.tar.gz (google the source)

    6) Unpacked, configure and make install the mtpfs binary

    9) Ran mtpfs -o allow_other /xoom after mkdir /xoom

    10) The xoom was readable at this point.

    This didn't require tumbleweed or too many compiles to get it working.

    I was able to copy the rules file into the /etc/udev/rulles.d/ directory, the device notifier sees the
    device but only reads the root directory of the xoom, no subdirectories or files.
    Once the device is mounted dolphin can be used to navigate to the /xoom directory.

    Don't forget to unmount the xoom when done.

    fuermount -u /xoom

    I did most of this with root but I don't think it's necessary.

    I've got all of those things installed except for one: id3tags from Packman. I couldn't find id3tags, but I did find id3tag. However, there was no Packman version. Where'd you get that version from? My Xoom is also not readable
