If you are looking for effortless and minimum configuration GUI apps to share files between Linux and Android devices over a local wireless network, this article will help you out.

While it is possible to share files in Linux using tools like Samba, FTP and SSH, these utilities often require fiddling with terminal commands and there is no GUI in most cases. A lot of people prefer these methods, however this article focuses on easy to use GUI alternatives that provide similar functionality.

As I recall, setting up for 'terminal' style was pretty trivial/simple, and once set up, for me its ...

One script containing

simple-mtpfs --device 1 /android

... to mount my phone to /android on the laptop via a usb cable

Or another script containing

sshfs 192.168.1.10:/storage/emulated/0 /android -p 2222

to mount the phone again to /android on the laptop using wireless

(The default phones password is 'admin', which like Puppy's default password of 'woofwoof' should be changed).

For the first simple-mtpfs needs to be installed on the laptop (already pre-installed in Fatdog), nothing additional needed on the phone. For the latter it requires sshhelper to be installed via the Play Store onto the phone (nothing else needed on the laptop, assuming ssh/sshfs/fuse are available already which in most cases they are)

I use both of those both in Fatdog and my own cut-down BullDog (Fatdog's initramfs cli - a 15MB system). In that Bulldog I use mc as my file manager, text editor and as a program launcher (F2 user menu). For instance to download/watch a video/play audio/view images whilst in that cli/tui I just download it directly to the android phone and view it on that device.

Nice to be made aware of other choices however, so thanks labbe5.
