I'm not sure about Debian 8, since I've upgraded everything to Debian 9. My experience was that I was able to get XFCE4 to work with Android phones via MTP with Debian 8, but I haven't figured out how to get it to work consistently with Debian 9.

Instead, I just use gmtp, which is NOT integrated with the normal file system tools. Instead, it's just a simplistic GUI interface to copy/move/delete/etc files. Because it doesn't even try to hook into the normal file system tools, it just plain works.

Jinkels, I appreciate your comments, truly, but no it isnít there. I checked everywhere and there is no icon or anything else indicating a removable device.

There is no icon. Open your home directory in a file browser and open the Asus folder.

I don't get how to use gmtp? I installed it and see the GUI format, but it doesn't recognize my tablet. Most of the tabs are grayed out.

if adb works, you can use this: https://github.com/sole/aafm
...and adb always works

You manually click on the big "Connect" button to connect to your device (after plugging it in and enabling MTP on the device, if necessary).

GMTP does not detect the attached device. It says: "Detect:No raw devices found."

When you plugged in the Android device, did you do the stuff necessary on the Android device to activate/allow MTP?

On the linux side, do you see the new USB device when you type in "lsusb"? What output do you see with lsusb?

Experimenting a bit, I see that:

The error "Detect:No raw devices found." is consistent with either:

1) No Android device connected
2) Bad USB cable
3) Bad USB port
4) Bad module/driver issue causing USB port not to be seen properly

Basically, all the things that could cause the device to NOT show up at all with "lsusb".

However, if the device is connected and seen BUT MTP file transfer mode is not enabled (this is done on the Android device), then the error is "No Storage Found". In other words, it sees the device but the device isn't presenting any storage.

What is "the stuff necessary on the Android device to activate/allow MTP"? I
don't see anything on the device itself that suggests a setting for MTP. What would
it be under? Thanks.

For example, when you connect the USB cable, there may be a notification saying something like:

"USB for charging; Touch for more options"

On my Moto G phone, the options it gives are:

+ Charging Just charge the device

- File transfers Transfer files to Windows or Mac (MTP)

- Photo transfer (PTP) Transfer photos or files if MTP is not supported (PTP)

- MIDI Use device for MIDI Input

It defaults to charging only.
