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.

Install either one or both android-file-transfer , android-file-transfer-qt5
https://github.com/whoozle/android-file-transfer-linux This is the original software base. Use your Software Station to download the verison for GhostBSD.

Until I figure this out or you figure out. Its much easier to install and use "android-file-transfer-qt5" GUI Version
To start the GUI Version
Ghostbsd Menu Applications --->System Tools ---> Android File Transfer (MTP)
MTP GhostBSD Menu pic
MTP GhostBSD Menu pic

Open GhostBSD Menu and start Software Station
System ---> Administration ---> Software Station

android-file-transfer Click check box install and apply button Version 4.2 Android MTP client with minimalistic UI

Confirm installation button

After installation click the upper right hand corner red ball circle button to close "Software Station"

Optionally you can install the GUI tool version, "android-file-transfer-qt5" in place of/ or in addition with "android-file-transfer"

Image

Make a directory to mount your phone's file system into.
sudo mkdir -p /media/phone
Password:

Attach usb cable to cellphone. Attach usb cable to computer. have phone top screen open. Swipe down to open message memo. Go to the bottom and find the "Android Systems * USB Charging" Menu. Tap to open, change select USB for file transfer or photo transfer.

Android file transfers for Chrome OS computers, use as example for FreeBSD


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4SBkaC6Wpo Video showing files being transfered from phone to FreeBSD

You'd expect file transfers between Android phones and Chromebooks to be as simple as can be, considering that Google's the driving force behind both of those operating systems — and by golly, you'd be absolutely right.

Just like on a Windows system, all you've gotta do to connect your Android phone to a Chromebook is plug it into any open USB port, then tap the USB charging notification on the phone and select either "Transfer files" or "File transfer" from the prompt that appears — or select "Transfer photos" or "PTP" if you want your phone to be treated like a camera, with a focus exclusively on multimedia files.

Once you do that, the Chrome OS Files app should automatically appear on your Chromebook with your phone present as one of the storage options. The system will probably even prompt you to back up all of your phone's media files to Google Drive; you can allow that, if you'd like, or dismiss it and simply drag and drop files in either direction as needed.

https://www.freebsdsoftware.org/sysutil ... nsfer.html Bare information about FreeBSD version. Reference "aft-mtp-cli" command line tool.
