Installing Samsung Tab2 in Ubuntu is just like a breeze. Go through the steps below.
1. Install libusb-dev with below command
$ sudo apt-get install libusb-dev
2. Download libmtp from below location
[Hope you downloaded into your /home/<username>/Downloads folder]
3. Now, go into the Download directory with below command
$ cd /home/<username>/Downloads
4. extract it with below command (Hope you have gzip installed)
$ gunzip libmtp-1.1.5.tar.gz
5. this will get you a libmtp-1.1.5.tar file in /home/<username>/Downloads directory. Now you extract it with –
$ tar -xvf libmtp-1.1.5.tar
6. After that a directory/folder named libmtp-1.1.5 will be created in /home/<username>/Downloads directory. Go into that folder-
$ cd libmtp-1.1.5
7. compile the contents and install steps
7a. $ ./configure –prefix=/usr
7b. $ make
7c. $ sudo make install
8. Now we need to copy the rules from /home/<username>/Downloads/libmtp-1.1.5 to /etc/udev directory. So, stay on the current directory (/home/<username>/Downloads/libmtp-1.1.5) and execute below command
$ cp sudo cp 69-libmtp.rules /etc/udev/rules.d
9. Final and last task is to install gmtp
$ sudo apt-get install gmtp
10. And yup … Tab2 is ready to be connected. Plug in your Tab. Go to Applications > Sound & Video > gMTP.
Click connect and enjoy
Note: I got this tips from internet and it worked for me. Hats off to the original author.
Thanks to Darran Kartaschew and all those who worked on and made gMTP available.
