Hello, I want to use gMTP in Debian to transfer my FP2 (with Fairphone Open OS) files. I have installed gmtp, libmtp-common, libmtp-dbg, libmtp-dev, libmtp-runtime, libmtp9 and mtp-tools packages in my computer. But gMTP shows an error message when I try to connect my FP2 (I select transfer files with MTP in my FP2, previously).
When I open gMTP with Terminal, it says this:
Code: Select all
$ gmtp
Device 0 (VID=2ae5 and PID=9039) is a Fairphone Fairphone 2 OS.
ignoring libusb_claim_interface() = -6PTP_ERROR_IO: failed to open session, trying again after resetting USB interface
LIBMTP libusb: Attempt to reset device
ignoring libusb_claim_interface() = -6LIBMTP PANIC: failed to open session on second attempt
Detectar: No se puede abrir el dispositivo de primas?
LIBMTP PANIC: Trying to dump the error stack of a NULL device!
LIBMTP PANIC: Trying to clear the error stack of a NULL device!

As root, similar result.
Any solution using gMTP?

If it doesn’t connect automatically, open the notification panel on your phone, select USB connection and in there select “MTP” mode.

How to connect your Fairphone to your Linux computer:
Connecting your Fairphone to a Linux computer is slightly more difficult, but it's possible and should work without any problems. Read the articles here and here, on how to use your Fairphone with a Linux computer. Also, an easy solution is to install the package mtpfs. Read more here about mtpfs.

I have used gMTP without problems with Debian 8 and my FP2. But since I did a clean installation Debian 9 is not able to connect. Of course I activated MTP on the phone but nothing. I suspect that it is a problem of the usb ports, although I have tried to connect the cell to all of the pc. I would like to continue using the gMTP application since it is very comfortable and I have always worked well.
