Automounting an mtp device

I am attempting to configure my system to mount a mtp device when it is plugged in to the computer. I have installed mtpfs, put the libmtp.rules file in /etc/udev/rules.d and added the following line to the /etc/fstab file.

mtpfs                /media/zen           fuse   user,noauto,allow_other   0 0
While manually mounting the device is much simpler now the device is not mounted when it is plugged in. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
