When I plug in my Galaxy S4 into my computer running
Fedora 26, I am able to easily write files to the SD card by dragging and dropping them onto my phone's SD card in
nautilus, the file browser. However, if I try to copy over the same file using
cp, I am told that the opperation is not supported.
I've tried to ssh into the phone by using such apps as
SSHDroid, but I always receive an error telling my that I don't have the necessary permissions when I try to write to my phone.
Steps To Reproduce:
- Plug Android into computer with usb cable.
Open command prompt and attempt to file copy a file:
cp screenshot.png /run/user/1000/gvfs/mtp\:host\=%5Busb%3A001%2C015%5D/Card/fromComputer/. This outputs the following error message:
cp: cannot create regular file '/run/user/1000/gvfs/mtp:host=%5Busb%3A001%2C015%5D/Card/fromComputer/screenshot.png': Operation not supported
nautilusand navigate to the mounted Android phone's sd card. Copy and paste the desired file onto the card. The opperation will be successful.
