SailfishOS | Host OS is ubuntu 18.04.1 latest updates.

Formatting and encrypting microSD card from the SailfishOS UI worked like a charm. But now it is not available via MTP anymore in nautilus file browser.

It was available when it was not encrypted and formatted ext4.

Does anyone have the same problem?

(However i am able to mount it via sshfs and copy over the files i've backed up before)

Thank you for reporting. This needs be fixed.

@daywalker: I observed the same behaviour you described. At first I did not realize that the problem had something to do with the encryption. Thus I posted my problem here on TJC under a more general subject. Good news is, that according to jovirkku's comment, Jolla is aware of the problem now and tracking this issue. So I am hopefully looking forward to the next updates/releases :-)

In case of encrypted filesystems mounting happens via mapper device - and mtp functionality expects direct relationship between sdcard device nodes and mountpoints.

Should be fixed in SFOS >= 3.0.2.x
