Re: MTP support?

For MTP support in konqueror install 'kamera-trinity' package:
$ sudo apt-get install kamera-trinity

Another recommended app for fast data transfer between Android and Q4OS is 'gmtp':
$ sudo apt-get install gmtp
See documentation http://www.q4os.org/dqa007.html#android

Re: MTP support?

Installed kamera-trinity, it works but I don't have permission to write on device.
'writing to camera is not supported'

gmpt hangs.

I use pcmanfm as temporary solution

documentation - thanks! missed that.

Re: MTP support?

'krusader-trinity' depends on 'q4os-desktop' package, it's one of required packages. You can install doublecommander still, no need to remove 'krusader-trinity'. Similarly 'flash-plugin-nonfree' depends on q4os-firefox. If you want to remove flashplugin, you have to uninstall q4os-firefox too. Instead of q4os-firefox, you can install Iceweasel without flashplugin.

Re: MTP support?

OK Im back with fresh install q4os from q4os-live-1.4.9-x64 iso.
I can only get mtp support in pcmanfm-qt (siduction repo).
Kamera-trinity installed, gmtp doesn't work.
How do you guys browse files on your android devices? Bluetooth? Wifi?!

Install GMTP:
$ sudo apt-get install gmtp
Reboot, connect your device with USB cable. Set MTP protocol on the Android device. Launch GMTP from start menu, click "Connect", wait a moment to connect the device and browse files. Please read http://www.q4os.org/dqa007.html#android

If you will encounter an error, you are welcome to ask help. Please describe exactly how to reproduce it.

Re: MTP support?

gmtp hangs:

$ gmtp

** (gmtp:15788): WARNING **: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files                        
Unable to read MTPZ public exponent from ~/.mtpz-data, MTPZ disabled.                               
Device 0 (VID=0fce and PID=5171) is a SONY ST25i Xperia U MTP+ADB.                                  
Android device detected, assigning default bug flags

anyway I want to copy files from/to device in regular file browser.
MTP works in pcmanfm-qt but pcmanfm-qt itself gives me more problems (icons, mime types, ark integration).
I don't remember how I managed double-commander to work last year. I navigate to /run/user/1000/gvfs/ but I find nothing there.

Re: MTP support?

You should install 'at-spi2-core' package:
$ sudo apt-get install at-spi2-core

Which Android version does your device run on ? If it's older then 4.2, it's not probably supported by the Debian Jessie MTP library.

Re: MTP support?

Hello everyone, I have Q4OS with Trinity desktop, the problem I have is that I do not recognize my android phone when I connect it as an MTP device, they could help me solve it. My phone is a Moto G4 Play

Re: MTP support?

Follow these simple instructions and you should be good to go, but when connecting to the phone be patient as it can take some time to connect.

Re: MTP support?

Hello everyone, I could solve it by installing dolphin as file explorer, the problem I have is that I only have the option of read only, it does not allow me to copy files neither to the internal memory nor to the micro SD, my phone has Android 7.1.1
