If you want to transfer media between your Android device and your computer, you have to use MTP. Apparently, Windows ships with support for this, and Google makes OS X drivers freely available, but you’re on your own if you want to talk to a GNU/Linux machine.
There’s a library called
libmtpfor this and a FUSE module called
mtpfs. But it doesn’t work very well.
jmtpfs. It seems to be much more stable and performant. Try it!
I just plug the phone in and the sdcard automatically mounts, like any other usb device.
If I’m away from the computer, I can also use an android ftp client and swap files around.
Failing those two options, I can remove the sdcard and use an scard reader.
So many very simple options. No worries.
