I tried following this for Linux Mint but was unsuccessful. It seems that everything I search for on this topic points me to another distro and that doesn't work. At least not for me. Here is the result from lsusb: [root@localhost snapshot]# lsusb

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

The phone is there but I can't access it as it doesn't show up as a connected device on dolphin or the device notifier.
