Is there an Android mounter?


I see MX Tools has an iDevice mounter for apple stuff. Is there something similar for Android? I can't get MX to read my Android storage.

Google has progressively made Android more difficult to mount via a USB connection.

You might want to take a look at Airdroid. It works very nicely and you can use it to transfer files locally without creating an Airdroid login.

the standard on linux nowadays is to use gvfs and one of its many modules - gvfs-mtp in this case, i guess.
which file manager are you using?

I have no problem loading my Android phone, and none has been reported on the Forum. There is a section in the Users Manual on the general procedure you might want to have a look at, section 3.1.1. Here is the main part:
Quote:
• Connect phone, and make sure storage option id is set to MTP.
• Open Thunar. When the upper left pane (Devices) shows your phone’s name (or: Storage), click on it. If you don’t see it, reboot the phone.
• Navigate to the location you are looking for.
• If problems, Android phones can be accessed via a web browser by installing an app from Google’s Play Store such as AirDroid.

There is also KDEConnect. I prefer it to Airdroid, personally. https://community.kde.org/KDEConnect

Alas, Airdroid wouldn't install on my older Android tablet, so I guess I get to do it the hard way.

Update. Easier than I thought. My USB to micro USB connector had some goo in one end (no idea how it got there). I bought another one and it connected fine
