mtpfs package for Fedora?

How do I install the mtpfs package on Fedora? I don't see it under Add/Remove Software (I have rpmfusion repos enabled). Does anyone know if it is a part of some other package? Man, sometimes I wish Ubuntu and Fedora would not name their packages different.

And I really hope I don't have to do this but if I have to compile the package from source does anyone know where I can get the source package?

Re: mtpfs package for Fedora?

Maybe what you're looking for is "libmtp" ?

Summary : A software library for MTP media players

This package provides a software library for communicating with MTP
(Media Transfer Protocol) media players, typically audio players, video
players etc.
Oh... wait.
Code:
BASH:~/-> locate mtp | grep bin/
/usr/bin/pbmtpg
/usr/local/bin/mtpfs
/usr/sbin/smtp-sink
/usr/sbin/smtp-source
BASH:~/-> rpm -qf /usr/local/bin/mtpfs
file /usr/local/bin/mtpfs is not owned by any package
Yeah, now I recall. I compiled from source code. You can find the source code using Google.

Re: mtpfs package for Fedora?

I found this link with Google and it will only let me download a "read-only" version. Not exactly sure what that is but it doesn't have the files I need to compile it. Is there anywhere else I can get the source code?

You can grab the source here:
http://www.adebenham.com/mtpfs/

Extract it and then read the INSTALL file for more information on the steps to install.

Re: mtpfs package for Fedora?

Thanks Seve for the package but I am getting this error:

checking for FUSE... configure: error: Package requirements (fuse >= 2.2 glib-2.0 >= 2.6 gthread-2.0 >= 1.2 mad >= 0.15 id3tag >= 0.15 libmtp >= 0.0.9) were not met:

No package 'fuse' found
No package 'mad' found
No package 'id3tag' found
No package 'libmtp' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables FUSE_CFLAGS
and FUSE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
I have fuse, id3tag, libmtp and I am pretty sure mad installed and they are passed the required version number. So I am not sure why it is giving me this error.

Re: mtpfs package for Fedora?

You need to install the *-devel packages of those "missing" dependencies.

Code:
yum install fuse-devel libid3tag-devel libmtp-devel libmad-devel

That's the read-only version of the source. As in you can't make changes to the source code and then write them back to the repository, not a read only version of the mtpfs filesystem.
