When connecting a nexus device, it defaults to being mounted, but then shotwell gives an error -53 (this is MTP). The workaround is to disable automatic mounting via "gsettings set automount false".

  • Expected fix: have an option to not automatically mount a specific device. Via usb vendor-id/product-id pair.
  • Expected better fix: make sure shotwell can access the mtp device by asking gnome to unmount it. The eject button is not good enough, it also "removes" the device. command line "sudo umount" works but isn't user friendly.
