Very strange scenario here - my Galaxy Nexus automounts just fine (!), but my new Nexus 7 does not.

I had the same problem, however using the solution immudium pointed out above, didn't even allow me to manually manage the files on my Nexus 7. Using sys-fs/mtpfs-1.1, and manually mounting the device appeared to mount the internal storage and show the correct directory structure, but it showed no files, (and was read only of course). So it definitely wasn't working right. (BTW, same when I tried accessing the Nexus 7 with gMTP)

My solution was to use jmtpfs instead. I used the ebuild from this Gentoo forum post, copied to my local overlay, to install sys-fs/jmtpfs-0.4 into my system, and then modified my /etc/fstab line to;
Code:
jmtpfs         /mnt/nexus      fuse      user,noauto,allow_other               0 0

So now, after I plug my Nexus 7 in, when I issue the command;
Code:
mount /mnt/nexus

I can manage the files on my device. BTW, I don't know if it matters, but in order to keep my mtp support up to date, I keyworded and emerged media-libs/libmtp-9999, and then I made sure to create a symbolic link in my udev directory for the rules file that is installed with it;
Code:
ln -s /lib64/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules

At least I notice that when the Nexus 7 is mounted, there's no "unknown device" message.

Good Luck..

to mount my galaxy nexus. It's not an automount solution but it works and is the best solution I have for now. An alternative I suppose is to root the phone and then copy files over wifi via the sshdroid app but I haven't tried this.


thank you, immudium, that just did the trick for me!

The sys-fs/mtpfs / fstab solution isn't quite there with the Nexus 4 just yet...
Code:
gr0x0rd@teletran4 ~ $ sudo mtpfs /media/nexus
Error: Unable to open ~/.mtpz-data for reading.
Device 0 (VID=18d1 and PID=4ee1) is UNKNOWN.
Please report this VID/PID and the device model to the libmtp development team
Android device detected, assigning default bug flags
Hopefully a newer release of mtpfs will do the trick...
