Connect to Huawei Y621 by USB cable.

Post#1 by portypit » 03 Dec 2018, 11:30

Porteus 3.1 can read what's in this phone but Porteus 4.0 can't. Error message reads "The file or folder udi=/org/kde/solid/udev/sys/devices/pci 0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-2 does not exist". Why?

Hello portypit

It seems to be a KDE issue:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=387454

Until you get a better advice...

You may try XFCE or Cinnamon to see if it will work then.

If it does work in XFCE or Cinnamon, try the suggested solution in KDE:

Search for the 69-libmtp.rules file and change

ACTION!="add", GOTO="libmtp_rules_end"
to
ACTION!="bind", ACTION!="add", GOTO="libmtp_rules_end"

-- reboot --

Hello Donald,
I added ACTION!="bind", to 69-libmtp.rules.
When I tried to read from my smartphone, an error message indicated "an mtp process had ended unexpectedly".

So I downloaded XFCE and Cinnamon compressed modules.
I didn't use Cinnamon asits md5 checksum wasn't the same as the one in md5_sums.txt.
However, using the XFCE desktop module does allow me to read from the smartphone.

Once again, thanks for the useful info.
