    Can't connect Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus to Kubuntu

    Hi all!

    I'm trying to browse my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy s2 Plus) with Kubuntu - I really would like to avoid Windows, if possible.
    However, I have tried 3 different ways and it didn't work:
    1) Simply connecting the device to the pc and browsing it with Dolphin
    2) Trying go-mtpfs
    3) Trying mtpfs

    I know some would suggest to tap on "connect as USB mass storage" on the phone, but the kernel has recently changed and I can't find the option anymore.
    Can anybody help?
    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure about the Galaxy S2 but my Galaxy Nexus will only connect if the device is unlocked. After a few minutes of being idle it will lock itself like it's supposed to but that also causes it to disconnect from the computer.
