I'm using Manjaro KDE. Unable to browse for path to my android as with KDE there is not a mount point created in /run/user/100/gvfs like their is in other DE's. Apparently KDE uses a dev rule of some sort to connect though when use KDE's Krusader file manager I can access and compare and sync fine. That app displays an MTP path of sorts but it doesn't work to copy that into FreeFileSync.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm able to run the windows version of FFS in a VirtualBox VM but it's quite slow.

Thank you for any help anyone can offer.

Hi. When i connect mtp an android device to mint (currnetly 19.3) i can perdectly browse the phone. But when i open ffs and i select the phone it says "unable to mount as the device does not support". I deem that someone should fix this bug......
Anyway what i do is that i copy the link to phone from grsync to ffs ans then it works.
For me it is strange that ffs advertise it works with mtp connection....because in Linux it is bugging....
