USB file transfer?
#1
Currently only if I insert an SD Card with JumpDrive installed PinePhone gets detected on my PC, but without it I cannot transfer any files to or from via USB. I have tried both Plasma Mobile and Phosh versions and in both of them USB file transferring didn't work.

How to make USB file transferring work?
Will it be enabled by default in feature?

Mobian used to have a daemon that would let you transfer files over MTP. Try to see if the "umtp-responder" package is available for Manjaro and install it. You can also submit a feature request in the Manjaro issue tracker (all the graphical environments have a separate one).

Apparently warrior linux style is via scp over ssh e.g.
Code:
scp ~/*.txt kde@<ip address>:/home/kde/
You can invert source and destination to copy from Pinephone to laptop/desktop from which you ssh.

You need to be able to ssh e.g. kde@<ip_address> for scp to work, of course. Google or man for scp info.
Pinephone v1.2 UBports CE. Adelaide, Australia using Aldimobile SIM with Mobian SD card.
Manjaro Plasma Mobile on EMMC.

First of all sorry that I replied after so long. Until now I wasn't able to perform the above you have mentioned, so I just gave up. Now after reading other's posts in Mobian category, I installed pinephone-devtools from AUR using yay and then ssh is working now (sftp/scp/etc.). Thanks for your replies! Hope this might help some other Manjaro PinePhone users having the same problem.
