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.

Hi tylerdurden, I'm sorry, sometimes I use in desktop environment like xfce or lxde, sometimes in window manager, and it's complicated when by default it doesn't detect external devices, I don't know what other packages there may be apart from these gvfs-fuse and gvfs-backends for it to detect automatically, in hyperbola linux, those packages are discarded.

Re: Devuan does not detect Huawei smartphone hardware!

android has specific protocol to access its file system.
It has built in security for many devices not to be auto accessible when connected by USB.

If you enable developer settings in android you can auto enable to use it as file system. That is if it recognizes being plugged into your system.

However, the root directory and much of the system will not be mountable without rooting or mounting the device in a off state from what I understand.

Re: Devuan does not detect Huawei smartphone hardware!

My 2 cents: create a Samba share on your Devuan machine. Then connect to that from your phone. For Android there are lots of Windows/Samba apps and you can then easily connect and copy your stuff to and from the phone. Backup of your Contacts and Messages, you can do elsewhere.
