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.
