Software & Applications / Re: Nemo - Unable to mount mobile phone??
« on: October 28, 2017, 02:08:41 am »
Anyone got any thoughts on my last post??
What is concerning is the fact that I'm stuck booting into the 4.4.0-93 kernel which, as I say, probably doesn't bode well for security in the long term & also it appears that the linux kernel is not updating now?  ???

Morning All
Well as the man who found piles of soil being dumped on his allotment said " the plot thickens"  ;D

I was stuck (still am actually) booting into the 4.4.0-93 kernel because of the aforementioned problem with, what appears to be, MTP with the 4.4.0-96 kernel.
The other day I noticed that the 4.4.0-97 kernel was available in updates & duly installed in Pepp 8 on my Dell 6430 - but wasn't flagged up for update in the update manager on my Inspiron 1501 ??? I checked & it was available in the linux kernels tab of the update manager so I installed it & subsequently booted into it. However same problem existed as with the 96 kernel. I purged the 96 kernel & tried again - no change - so I then purged & reinstalled the 97 kernel, booted into it - still the same issue  :(

As a comparison (although I know it is different hardware) I booted into the 4.4.0-97 kernel on my Dell 6430 & could connect to the phone no problems - tether, access file system, re-tether etc any which way you like.

So consequently I'm still  stuck booting into the 4.4.0-93 kernel on this Inspiron 1501, which probable doesn't bode well for security in the long term, so unless anyone's got any ideas how I can resolve this I shall have to do a system re-install on the old  Inspiron 1501  :-\

Good Afternoon
Firstly apologies for the late response  :-[

Secondly @ spence
 I am not sure your issue is the same as mine spence but either way I'm afraid I can't help you matey & if you're having problems best to post a topic on here for 'the knowledgable' to assist  ;)

Finally @ PCNetSpec :

Do you need help making the earlier kernel the default for the time being ?

I'm all sorted ta Mark - a bit of searching turned up this:
https://www.calazan.com/how-to-set-an-older-kernel-version-as-the-default-in-grub-during-bootup-ubuntu-12-04/

So I changed 'GRUB_DEFAULT' in the /etc/default/grub file & voilĂ  all done :)

Ok Mark did what you said in your last post. All went smoothly & I then rebooted into the newly re-installed 4.4.0-96 kernel.
Tested ok the the phone with nemo & unfortunately no change  :(

(although it did get a little futher before freezing):

OK Mark did part 1:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge linux-headers-4.4.0-96 linux-headers-4.4.0-96-generic linux-image-4.4.0-96-generic linux-image-extra-4.4.0-96-generic
Part of the script on actioning that command was:
Code: [Select]
.........
The link /vmlinuz is a damaged link
Removing symbolic link vmlinuz
 you may need to re-run your boot loader[grub]
The link /initrd.img is a damaged link
Removing symbolic link initrd.img
 you may need to re-run your boot loader[grub]
..........

Should I reboot before doing the re-install?

Also I then ran:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep 4.4.0-96
to make sure I had done it correctly & removed everything.
It came back:
Code: [Select]
mick@mick-Inspiron-1501 ~ $ dpkg -l | grep 4.4.0-96
ii  linux-libc-dev:amd64                        4.4.0-96.119                                    amd64        Linux Kernel Headers for development
mick@mick-Inspiron-1501 ~ $

Does that need to be removed too?

Heres the info Mark:

Code: [Select]

mick@mick-Inspiron-1501 ~ $

Don't want to move to a too newer Kernel - I had try to install Pepp 8 on this laptop & it didn't like it (would't shut down):
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,5621.0.html

So think its best to give the 4.10 kernel via the HWE a miss ta  ;)

Well I hadn't but just have (4.4.0-93 as opposed to 4.4.0-96) & yes Mark I can connect now without issue  :)
However since I updated the kernel to 4.4.0-96 on 19th Sept 17 I have successfully mounted & accessed my mobile phone storage from Nemo via USB to transfer files to my laptop from the phone  ???
Would I be right in thinking a reinstallation of the 4.4.0-96 could probably resolve the problem?
If so could you post instructions as I wouldn't want to balls that up ::)

Bit of an update

 After searching regarding 'libmtp error: could not get object handles' I found this post:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/87667/getting-mtp-enabled-devices-to-work-with-ubuntu/308366#308366

The relevant part of my /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules was:

Code: [Select]
# Motorola Moto G (ID1)
ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="2e76", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
# Motorola Moto G (ID2)
ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="2e82", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
# Motorola Moto G (XT1032)
ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="2e84", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
............

The command:
Code: [Select]
lsusb
Showed:
Code: [Select]
mick@mick-Inspiron-1501 ~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 22b8:2e24 Motorola PCS

I backed up /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules to /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules.original

then amended the /lib/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules to make the relevant part shown above read:
Code: [Select]
....................
# Motorola Moto G (XT1032)
ATTR{idVendor}=="22b8", ATTR{idProduct}=="2e24", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
......................

However the same problem exists.  :-\

I have also noticed through several evolutions of trying to connect the:
Code: [Select]
lsusbcommand yields a different idProduct value  ???

Have you tried reinstalling the mtp stuff
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gvfs-backends gvfs-fuse libmtp-common libmtp-runtime libmtp9 mtp-tools mtpfs

Did that & there was somewhat of an improvement however it tried to load the file system for a while then I got this message:

Evening Mark
Same issue with Guest account too. Also I've noticed if I try to mount the phone, which will then necessitate me terminating Nemo & re-opening it, not only can I  no longer tether the phone but I cannot mount any USB drive I have - however I can before I try to mount the phone - just a guess but it wouldn't be anything to do with MTP would it? but I do reiterate:
Quote
Its not the phone - I've got a backup/secondary OS Miyolinux (Devuan LXDE) and I can mount the phone no problem & access my phones file system - l can tether the phone for internet access & switch between the 2 processes without issue - just as I used to be able to do on my Pepp7 OS, on another partition, before the incident that I described in my OP occurred
  .
I don't know if this has anything to do with this issue, & I don't want to muddy the waters at all, but when I logged into my Guest account there was an Error popup box that said 'No session for PIDxxxx' which equated to lxsession

@ alynur thanks for your suggestion - I'll give it a look  ;)

Hello Scifidude
The phones a Moto G 1st generation with Android 5.1.1 & as I said in my OP:

Previously I had had no issue mounting the phone in Nemo.

This problem came about when I was tethered to the phone & I stopped the internet connection & then tried to switch to accessing my phone storage by mounting it in Nemo. I did this pretty rapidly so I don't know if the tethering was fully terminated before I tried to mount the phone & that caused the issue??
So I think that is the crux of the matter  ;)

Software & Applications / Nemo - Unable to mount mobile phone?? (SOLVED)
« on: October 05, 2017, 02:42:37 pm »
 :) :)Good Evening
Had a problem rear its ugly head  :( - I can no longer mount & access my mobile phone storage from Nemo via USB.
When I try to mount the phone Nemo freezes & I have to terminate Nemo. After this I can no longer tether the phone (for internet access) however from a fresh boot, as long as I don't try to mount the phone, I can tether to the phone without issue.
This problem came about when I was tethered to the phone & I stopped the internet connection & then tried to switch to accessing my phone storage by mounting it in Nemo. I did this pretty rapidly so I don't know if the tethering was fully terminated before I tried to mount the phone & that caused the issue??
Previously I had had no issue mounting the phone in Nemo.
Any help would be appreciated
Cheers  :)

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Dell Latitude 3150
« on: July 14, 2017, 05:02:51 pm »
@ PeppermintFan
First of all welcome to peppermints excellent helpful & friendly forum from me  :)

Quote
The feature that I do like that is in there is the reversal of the Whisker menu with the categories on the left and the programs fanning out on the right.  I think this is a clever thing to do and brings it more in line with the Mate menu or ClearOS.  It also gives more familiarity to the "traditional" XP menu that everyone is kinda used to in some way or another.

you know that's easy to achieve don't you? :
Click on whisker menu Properties > Behaviour  check the box: Position categories next panel button  ;)

Im still running Pepp 7 on my old Inspiron 1501 which is doing absolutly fine  ;D

Ive also just invested in a second hand Latitude E6430 (with an SSD) , which I am still evaluating, & ive put Pepp 8 on it & it flies  :D

I personally don't like the concept of systemd & its ever expanding tentacles controlling everything - I think its sinister & quite possibly a disaster waiting to happen  ??? & with what looks like Peppermints impending move away from lubuntu (LXDE) I would ask the team take a look at a Devuan base - I know its not 'mainstream' but it is Debian essentially (like ubuntu/lubuntu are) therefore should be stable & reliable & maybe more lightweight than an xubuntu base  :)
Like you, I love Peppermint - its been my 'home' for the last 18 months since I discovered it  :) & the forum members are top drawer  ;)

Yep im in total agreement about nemo - as far as I'm concerned its the dogs gonadds  :D
