I'm experiencing many problems trying to properly connect and access the memory of my phone from my Linux system.
I'm running openSUSE 13.1, with KDE, and my phone is a Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo equipped with Android 4.4.2 (it is not rooted, it it makes any difference); it can't be connected with a simple USB protocol but it needs to use MTP.
Now I have found that MTP under Linux is not exactly what you will call "working out of the box". Usually I can see the content of the connected device, but I get any sort of error when I try to work with it, i.e. by copying files to and from its memories, both internal and SD card (which, in the end, is the point of having it connected to the computer), without being able to perform these tasks.
By searching on the currently installed packages for "MTP" I can see that only
libmtp9 are installed; do I need something else?
I've also tried to use KDE Connect, a superb application that amongst other things should let me access the phone memory; but when I try to do that, Dolphin (I mean KDE file manager of course) hangs and I must terminate it; I don't know exactly what kind of protocol KDE Connect uses, but it doesn't work for me either.
What should I do to make it work?
