I use Xubuntu 12.04. I have searched the forum for answers regarding the Samsung Galaxy SII Android phone not being detected in Ubuntu and have applied every suggested solution that I thought might work. The problem for me isn't Ubuntu, as I have the same OS on my desktop and using nautilus I can see my phone. But on my laptop, I don't have nautilus installed and would prefer not to install it along with all the accompanying required files.

However, my phone doesn't show up in Thunar. I'm not a complete novice, but not particularly proficient in Linux, either, but I cannot figure out how to make the phone show up in Thunar. Any help?
