libmtp 1.1.2 is now in [extra].

Can the Galaxy Nexus users try that version out and let me know if you have the same buggy behavior with it? If you do, we know the bug is not related to my PKGBUILD.

Thanks! I didn't realize the same thing happened in USB Debug mode. Something weird is definitely going on here. Hopefully the Rhythmbox and/or libmtp people get back to us soon.

Stumbled upon a similar problem recently (Rhythmbox crashes after file transfer to Galaxy Nexus), posted a bug report a few weeks ago:

Got an email notification about the following comment, but for some reason it's not here any more. Pasting below.

> Great work. thx. After installing the Galaxy Nexuss appears in Rhythmbox. After dragging one mp3 to the device Rhythmbox crashes.... is it a Rhythmbox or a libmtp-git issue?

I also had problems with Rhythmbox. I talked to the developers, but they weren't sure if it was a Rhythmbox or a libmtp issue. I'll submit a Rhythmbox bug and link it here.

w1ntermute: It looks like mtpfs does use libmtp. If you have libmtp-git installed, it would use libmtp-git instead. Thanks for letting me know that the behavior is the same whether you use libmtp or libmtp-git. This means one of the following must be true:

1. The behavior you are experiencing is not related to libmtp at all. For example, maybe mtpfs has a bug.
2. The behavior you are experiencing is related to libmtp, but they haven't fixed it yet even in the latest development snapshots.

I would file a bug with libmtp (, if for no other reason than to get their thoughts on the matter. I would do it myself, but I don't know the specifics of your issue. Let me know how it goes -- I am very interested in what is causing this.

What I meant was that there's an 'mtpfs' package (in the repos) that I'm having trouble with. I'm using it to mount my Galaxy Nexus's storage to a local directory. I'm getting the same results regardless of whether I'm running libmtp or libmtp-git, but I'm not sure if this is because (a) mtpfs doesn't use libmtp, and thus wouldn't be affected by any changes to it, or (b) the changes made from libmtp to libmtp-git didn't fix the specific problems I'm having.

I want to make sure that (a) isn't true before proceeding to (b).

Correction: If the problem goes away after doing that, let me know. Basically, feel free to let me know one way or the other. :-)

Hey w1ntermute. This is libmtp, just a newer version of it.

Do you have the same problem when you use the normal libmtp package? You can install it by doing "sudo pacman -S libmtp". If you have the same problem after doing that, let me know.

I'm still seeing several bugs when using mtpfs - does it use libmtp on the backend, or should I be looking for support elsewhere?
