jmtpfs: FUSE based MTP filesystem

NAME

jmtpfs - FUSE based MTP filesystem

SYNOPSIS

jmtpfs [OPTIONS] <mountpoint>

DESCRIPTION

jmtpfs is a FUSE and libmtp based filesystem for accessing MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) devices. It was specifically designed for exchanging files between Linux systems and newer Android devices that support MTP but not USB Mass Storage.

This manual page documents briefly the jmtpfs commands.

OPTIONS

FUSE Options:

-h
Show fuse help options.

Application Options:

-l or --listDevices
list available mtp devices (busLocation, devNum, productId, vendorId, product, vendor) and then exit.
-device=<busnum>,<devnum>
Device to mount. If not specified the first device found is used.
-V or --version
Show jmtpfs and FUSE version information.

UNMOUNT DEVICE

Use fusermount -u <mountpoint> to umount the device.

EXAMPLE

jmtpfs -o allow_other ~/transformer

fusermount -u ~/transformer

UDEV RULES

You will need to identify the device (via dmesg) and add a new rule to; /lib/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules to identify the ATTRS{idVendor} and ATTRS{idProduct} for the device.

Current rules are for the ASUS Transformer TF101 and Samsung GT.
