Thank you all for tips! I was unaware of that helpful MTP wiki entry. With the 
help of newest libusb and libmtp I am able to connecto to T30! Whee! 
However, I cannot upload files, but it seems to be a problem with libmtp 
(according to their mailing list). So, sorry for trouble and thanks for help!
