No it does not, you need to run the command
Code: Select all
sudo simple-mtpfs /media/samsong -o allow_other
but make sure to run
Code: Select all
mkdir /media/samsong
before

Thanks, Eric,

Here's what I get:
Code: Select all
ward@beanthecat ~> sudo simple-mtpfs /media/phone/ -o allow_other
fuse: failed to open fuse device: No such file or directory


Still no mount.
