Have `mtpfs` installed by default
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This package provides the MTP protocol needed to access the filesystem on android devices via USB.

Without this, Dolphin fails to connect to the phone with a cryptic error.

Added the package mtpfs as a suggests in dolphin. This way the package manager will try and install it if possible. I have uploaded the fix to zesty.

Not sure this worked in Zesty. I have Zesty installed and mtpfs didn't get installed, but is available in the repo.

Fabulous. Thanks!

From today's IRC conversation, it looks mike mtpfs has been removed from Artful, and we should use go-mtpfs instead.

I added go-mtpfs to the seed, and it was added to the most recent iso. Can you test that this now works correctly?

mtpfs is now working splendidly on my AA install.
