Ubuntu 15.10 
Digikam 4.14.0 
Android Lollipop in mtp mode

Smartphone is mounted by gvfsd under the folder:
/run/user/1000/gvfs/mtp\:host\=%5Busb%3A001%2C009%5D and is accessible from the
CLI and Nautilus, including images in the /Internal Storage/DCIM/Camera folder.

Note that because of a gvfsd or Ubuntu 15.10 bug, Ubuntu may run two instances
of gvfsd at boot so to get CLI file access I stopped and restarted a single
instance of gvfsd: sudo killall -9 gvfsd

I added the /run/user/1000/gvfs sub-folder as a collection in Digikam (Settings
- Configure Digikam) - but there are no images showing in Digikam, although
they are visible in CLI and Nautilus and I can see the phone's Camera folder in
Digikam's dialog box. I tried adding it as a local share, and as a network

The camera shows as auto-detected in the Import - Cameras sub-menu. Selecting
it opens the Import dialog box without images and with the error message
'Failed to connect to the camera. Please make sure it is connected properly and
turned on.'
