Accessing HTC One m9 filesystem on Linux Mint with Thunar
I'm trying to transfer some pictures from my HTC One m9 to my laptop running Linux Mint 17.2. I'm using the XFCE desktop and Thunar file manager, if that matters. When I click on "Android Phone" under "Devices" in the file manager, I get these error messages:

"Failed to mount 'Android Phone'. Unable to open MTP device '[usb:003,009]'."

"Failed to mount 'Android Phone'. No such interface 'org.gtk.vfs.Mount' on object at path /org/gtk/vfs/mount/1."

When I run lsusb in the terminal, my phone is listed as "Bus 003 Device 009: ID 0bb4:0f25 HTC (High Tech Computer Corp.)".

I tried running the command "sudo mkdir phone && mtpfs phone" after some googling, and got this output:

"Unable to open ~/.mtpz-data for reading, MTPZ disabled.Listing raw device(s)
Device 0 (VID=0bb4 and PID=0f25) is UNKNOWN.
Please report this VID/PID and the device model to the libmtp development team
Found 1 device(s):

Error 2: Error 02fe: PTP: Protocol error, data expected

Any idea what's wrong here?

I take it you already


sudo apt-get install mtp-tools

apt-cache policy mtp-tools
will tell you if it is installed or not.

Make sure Banshee if you have it is closed as it will cause a conflict if open.
So make sure Banshee is shut down first.
Make sure phone is unlocked also.

Might help, or not.

Looks like having Banshee open was indeed the problem. I shut it down and now I can access the phone without a problem.
Thanks for the help!
