    Ensure that usb Debugging mode is off on your phone.
    Ensure that your phone is on pc mass storage mode.
    Ensure your linux user is in the group 'storage'. (check by typing 'groups' into your terminal.)

    That's groups with an S. Are you usually able to access other USB storage devices such as pen drives and external hard drives?

    This may be similar to what you may need to do:

    To transfer pictures from my Samsung Galaxy SII to my 'Mint Linux' world, this what I needed to do:

    1. Boot your PC into linux.
    2. On the phone, turn off USB Debugging: Settings ->Developer Options -> USB Debugging (Off)
    3. On the phone, invoke USB mass storage: Settings -> More -> USB Utilities -> tap 'connect storage to pc' & you will be asked to connect the USB cable.
    4. Connect the USB cable between the phone and PC
    5. The phone will display a new screen, tap connect.
    6. You should see your phone's storage under 'Computer' in the file system or as an icon(s) on the desktop.
    7. My pictures are in: DCIM folder -> Camera
    8. Copy and paste whatever you want.

    The key is to 'turn off USB debugging' and to connect to the 'USB mass storage'.

    Sorry that I can't be of more 'specific' help to you.

    I was looking for the same solutions and found that AirDroid and Kies Air work pretty well.

    Well, i just went through the process! I got too many photos on my Samsung phone without deleting any one! And it appears to be such a mess! To better manage the files, and also for backup, i just copy photos from Samsung phone to pc! I used a transfer tool from the web after comparing a variety of tools!
