This is mostly a note to myself, but I’m sharing it in hopes that it might help someone else.
Here’s how to mount the filesystem of a Nexus 7 tablet under Fedora 17. It will probably work for other Fedora versions and for other devices that use MTP to share their filesystems. The recipe is simple:
sudo yum install simple-mtpfs mkdir -p ~/mnt/nexus7 simple-mtpfs ~/mnt/nexus7 \# fs is now mounted on ~/mnt/nexus7
fusermount -u ~/mnt/nexus7
