Amarok and MTP Digital Media Device (Samsung YP-T7J) in Kubuntu Edgy

Asked by brg on 2007-04-08

I am trying to connect the above media player using Amarok.

I have the libmtp libraries installed, but I'm not sure what to do from here.

I am still new to Linux, and I'm hoping this will help me solve the problem.

Do I need to mount it? If so, how do I go about doing that, and where would I find it in order to mount it?

I have a MTP device that I sync using Gnomad2. Most everything seems to mount by default in *buntu, but it doesn't show up on my desktop when I plug it in like mounted things usually do. Even so, I don't have to mount it manually. I don't know where it goes exactly, but I know that with Gnomad2 it scans the USB drives and spots it and starts working with it. You should just have to plug it in and then tell it to sync.

It could be that your player isn't listed in libmtp.rules. To see if it is:
gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/libmtp.rules

If it's not listed, in the terminal, type:
and copy your device's vendor and device ID numbers into the above file (use sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/libmtp.rules)

If the above doesn't work, it could also be a problem with the libmtp that's in the repos, in which case you'll have to recompile it (I had this problem on Feisty, but others have reported it in Edgy with the Gnomad2 howto). If that's the case, I can give details about how to do that.

Can you help with this problem?
