Package: gvfs-backends
Version: 1.24.2-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Fails to mount Android 4.x Sony XperiaE C1505 and the device is not even being
shown in the file manager in KDE5 (Debian strech). While it can been seen in
the terminal as follows:

steve at DebianOS:~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 006: ID 0fce:018c Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB

And teh KDE desktop notifier pops up on connecting the phone by a USB cable,
but it thinks its a portable music player and when I click on the "open in file
browser" than noting happens...

I am new on Linux (first week) after 25y on Windows and it is so disappointing
that I cannot even simply download my photos from ym phone. :(
