Since I upgraded Fedora to version 28 I have problems seeing from the terminal at which point my phone is mounted.. I can see it through the GUI only, and when I take a look its path from the file manager I view this mtp://%5Busb%3A002,009%5D/.

With lsusb command I can see it, but nothing about its mount point using lsblk command

# dmesg | tail

mtp:// devices aren't typically mounted at the top level of directories that lsblk would reveal. They're often times nested under a path such as /run/user/$UID/gvfs/, where $UID would be your username's userid when expanded. You can find this out via the id command:

$ id
uid=1000(manny) gid=1000(manny) groups=1000(manny),4(adm),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(dip),46(plugdev),108(lpadmin),124(sambashare)

NOTE: Here my $UID would be 1000.

I'd investigate this directory to start from your terminal, find /run/user -type d and see if it's located under there.


  • Hi slm, thank you for reply me. I had tried to go at /run/user/1000/gvfs/ directory, but with root permissions the /gvfs directory is hidden... So using the command CD normally only I goal. Thanks for your help now I understand. Have a nice day !
