    [GUIDE]Mounting storage in Ubuntu

    I've been trying to get this to work ever since i got my xoom and now th TF, so i'm excited i can finally just plug my TF into my computer and view my files. so with your transformer plugged into your computer do this:

    Code:
     sudo apt-get install mtpfs
    Code:
     sudo mkdir /media/tf101
    Code:
     sudo chmod 775 /media/tf101
    Then this should mount it
    Code:
     sudo mtpfs -o allow_other /media/tf101
    Always be sure to unmount before disconnecting by doing
    Code:
     sudo umount mtpfs
    You may also need to add a rule in /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
    Code:
     sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
    add this line to the file
    Code:
     SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0b05", ATTRS{idProduct}=="4e0f", MODE="0666", OWNER="" #Asus Transformer
    placing your user name in the appropriate spot
    save, then chmod:
    Code:
     sudo chmod a+r /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
    Just browse to /media and it should be there

    thanks to roach at xda for helping me figure this out.

    to get it to automount: (i haven't tried this with the transformer so be sure to make a backup of your fstab in case you screw up your mounting points)

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/fstab
    In the first unused line available you might want to type a comment like:

    Code:
    # mount point for tf101
    then add this line after it:

    Code:
     mtpfs     /media/tf101     fuse     user, noauto,allow_other      0      0
    Next modify fuse.conf to allow_other:

    Code:
     sudo gedit /etc/fuse.conf
    uncomment the last line which should read:

    Code:
     #user_allow_other
    uncomment meaning remove the #

    add your user to the fuse group:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/group
    a long file will open, press CTRL+F to bring up the find dialog and type

    Code:
     fuse
    close the dialog and fuse should be selected and visible.
    At the end of that line with no space add your user name.

    Save that file. Close it.

    Lastly reboot your computer.

    Now when your computer restarts, if you look at your "Places" menu you will see a Drive marked with 'tf101'

    Plug in your transformer, and click on tf101 in Places.

    Nautilus should open with all your files that you have on your device. It will also place a mounted drive icon on your desktop. If you would like to unmount, right click on that icon and click unmount.

    As you can see this was a pain for me, but hopefully this solution will work for everybody. I know the instructions are really long but follow it and you will feel old school mounting your storage in your file browser.

    NOTE: THIS WAS TESTED ON UBUNTU 10.10(and 11.04) ONLY, IF THIS WORKS FOR ANYONE ELSE PLEASE POST YOUR FINDINGS.
