I am trying to mount my Galaxy S2 on Debian Squeeze laptop. I turned off USB debugging and then in:

"Wireless & Networks" → "USB Utilities" → "Connect storage to PC"

it asks me to connect a USB cable, as soon as I connect the USB cable the pop goes away and my phone starts charging but I don't see my phone mounted in my laptop.

I did lsusb and don't see any Samsung device connected. Then I decided to turn on USB debugging and did lsusb again but no luck. What could be wrong?
