If you look at the images of the two systems? In Linux mint it detects RNE L03 which is the hardware of the Huawei phone, while in Devuan it only detects the disk, and does not detect RNE L03 of the Huawei hardware phone.

Re: Devuan does not detect Huawei smartphone hardware!

do you see it as a device inside thunar file manager?

edit: also what is your purpose, why do you want to detect your smartphone, to detect files or to use it as a network device?

In devuan I do not see the device RNE L03 which is Huawei, only the Huawei disk is there. And logically the devices are used for what is needed, not for networking.

Re: Devuan does not detect Huawei smartphone hardware!

so you only see the storage device?

Id say you need to look into the desktop settings and enable view volumes on the desktop.

As shown in the pictures, that's all you can see. How to enable it? In the desktop settings, Removable devices is enabled in the default icons section,

Re: Devuan does not detect Huawei smartphone hardware!

maybe you need gvfs-backends installed, but it should be installed if you have a full devuan installation.

I dont use desktop environments so im probably not much help.

Good little program if you are willing to learn how to use it in the terminal is jmtpfs

https://packages.debian.org/buster/jmtpfs

This program can help you mount your smartphone storage.

Re: Devuan does not detect Huawei smartphone hardware!

The image you posted is no longer available but from what I've gathered you're using XFCE, right?
I'm assuming you want to access not just the phone's SD card but also its internal storage, correct?

As dice said, make sure you have these installed:

gvfs-fuse
gvfs-backends

And make sure you're connecting your phone in "data transfer" mode or something along those lines.

Do repost the screenshot.
