Make Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 4 work on Ubuntu

In the latest Ubuntu 13.04, the Ubuntu team has upgraded the MTP support, so you now can connect you mobile phone with Ubuntu. But if you are looking for a more stable version of Ubuntu, I recommend that you use a LTS (Long Term Support) version. Which currently is version 12.04.

But when using 12.04, it lack the Android 4 support. But that can be fixed with following the instruction found here http://www.webupd8.org/2013/01/upgrade-to-gvfs-with-mtp-support-in.html.
