When i connect the phone neither phone alerts it is connected nor pc recognizes as usb device. On linux when i try lsblk command i cannot see the phone either . This is not a linux specific problem under windows i have the same problem except charging cannot do anything via usb how can i solve this issue. Android version 4.4.2


In Settings or from the notification area, there should be a setting when connected via USB, is that set to "Charging Only"? If so, set it to MTP/Mass Storage Mode instead. I can't remember how Samsung words it.
