MTP: The story goes on...

Finally I got my mobile-sync working with linux and android. And no, its not MTP...
A USB stick with a file called '.is_audio_player' is recognized by banshee and rythmbox as a valid sync-target. After sync to stick I could copy over to my device using MTP...

What a mess!

Linux & MTP

For those who don't know: Since Android 3 Google decided to use MTP as transport protocol. Device vendors could optinally add SD-card mounts but they don't need to.
My Nexus 4 from Google for sure does only support MTP which has very bad support on linux.

Is there hope on the horizon? gvfs-mtp
I have had no time to test this, but I will do soon.
