Yeah, just like what @RockDoctor did, you can always mount mtp filesystem manually, since you are using Linux

Wow! It actually worked; however I ran into this problem. I tried to upload a file from the desktop to the phone (is that uploading or downloading?), and I got a message:"single size file must not exceed 10mb; use airdroid in same network environment, or upgrade to premium". I am using it in the same network; just one same wifi connection for both. Also, when I click on "file transfer" on the phone, it gives me a choice of airdroid web or airdroid desktop. I click on the desktop one, and get a message "no computer found with your account", but I did sign in to airdroid on my desktop, and it shows that it is connected to my phone. I don't get it. I was able to transfer a smaller file (4mb) from the desktop to the phone, so at least I know it's working.
Do I have to type in that URL in my computer browser every time I want to connect? Or is there a quick way to do it?
Thanks for your help

I've only used it a few times while connected to my home network. It's grabbed the same address each time, but, since it's DHCP, if that address is taken, it might grab a different one.

Don't apologize for figuring stuff out, zealbert; the important thing is you figured it out. This is how we learn stuff.

Thanks for your support. Any ideas on the other problems I ran into? Did you have those problems, like "same network environment" and the size of the file, etc...?
