Viewing Android Files from Linux

Apparently this is easier with Windows - something is done automatically there.

What I found worked for Linux was
  1. On phone - Settings | Applications | Development | Enable USB Debugging.
  2. Connect Phone to Linux using USB.
  3. This will create a notification on phone - tap the notification - phone will ask if you wish to access files from PC and answer "Yes". 
As a side note I couldn't add ringtones from the Sound Menu. Need to create folders on the phone which are all one word and all lower case named
  • ringtones
  • notifications
  • alarms
And put the proper sound files in the proper folders. Some folks say you have to restart your phone for this to take effect but I did not have to do this - it just worked.
