Subject: [gentoo-user] MTP auto-mount? (Kindle Fire HD)
Date: Tue, 18 Sep 2012 17:40:01
1 Hi all,
2 Are there any known tricks for auto-mounting an MTP device? I think
3 this stuff is used on some newer Android phone so I'm hoping someone
4 has a nice solution.
6 My wife decided to buy the new Kindle Fire HD based on our good
7 experience with the original Kindle Fire. The new device is very nice
8 - faster, nicer screen, better networking, etc. - but no longer
9 presents itself as a USB Mass Storage device like my older Kindle
10 Fire. Rather it uses Media Transfer Protocol. (MTP) I've managed to
11 get it mounted using a package from the poly-c overlay called jmtpfs.
12 Info is located here:
16 I've copied some movies over and they play fine on the new device
17 but it's all by-hand manual mounting, etc. When the device is plugged
18 in I get this sort of info in dmesg:
20 [15720.370654] usb 2-2: new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci_hcd
21 [15720.490935] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=1949, idProduct=0007
22 [15720.490940] usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=2, Product=3, SerialNumber=4
23 [15720.490944] usb 2-2: Product: Kindle
24 [15720.490947] usb 2-2: Manufacturer: Amazon
25 [15720.490949] usb 2-2: SerialNumber: REMOVED
27 and based on one post I read for Ubuntu (or maybe Arch - I don't
28 remember) I've created this udev rule:
30 mark@c2stable ~ $ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
31 UBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="1949", ATTR{idProduct}=="0007", MODE="0666"
32 mark@c2stable ~ $
34 Anyway, it's all usable but a bit clumsy. Is there a sensible way I
35 can have the device recognized and mounted via rules in fstab? (Or any
36 other fixed file?)
38 Thanks,
39 Mark
