Samsung Galaxy Note Ubuntu Linux USB Connection Error

This pops up when connecting the phone and it doesn't seem to charge.  The phone keeps showing a status message every few seconds "Connected as a media device". 

It's ridiculous why this phone doesn't just default as a simple USB Mass storage device.

Here's what I see in /var/log/messages:

Apparently this will fix it: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/12/how-to-connect-your-android-ice-cream-sandwich-phone-to-ubuntu-for-file-access/

My only issue is that my Ubuntu can't find mtp-tools even with --fix-missing:
