Accessing Samsung Galaxy Nexus as USB Media Device Ubuntu 12.04

To use a Samsung Galaxy Nexus as a media device (MTP) there is a utility called gMTP.

sudo apt-get install gmtp mtpfs mtp-tools

NOTE: Unfortunately there is a bug in the 64-bit version at the moment (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mtpfs/+bug/936165) – which means it’s not all that useful to me at the moment.
