Unmount MTP device from the command line


Hi
I have both the Bus and Device numbers for a USB device I want to unmount.
I tried resetting the USB device like so
http://askubuntu.com/questions/645/h...e-command-line

but it doesn't unmount it from the desktop.

Hi there,

Is this a storage device, and a file system you need to unmount, or something else?

Which of the proposed solutions in the askubuntu discussion did you try?

Regards,

Clifford
