I have a galaxy tab 10.1, and the charging occurs through the adapter
connector USB cable, that is it charges from a USB socket. This same
USB cable can be plugged into my PC USB socket and it auto mounts (in
ubuntu 10.04.3) and the PC then indicates that a SAMSUNG_Android is
connected. The galaxy tab also indicates: USB connected, MTP-connected.
On the PC the file manager (location) of the mounted folder is

There are a lot of folders listed in the device, which is seen as
apparently a medium containing  digital photos, however, in nautilus,
all the folders are shown as empty. Maybe permissions need to be
managed somehow but my trick of gksu nautilus produces a nautilus
which does not show this medium....
I have other versions of Ubuntu  but have not yet tried it with them.
