I believe I can access the files on my Android mobile from my Linux Desktop if I turn on 'usb tethering' on my mobile. However, when I do it, nothing appears on my file manager. I am using Debian9 Linux and I have tried it with KDE desktop and Dolphin file manager (where I also checked 'Network' in places) and also on LXDE desktop with PCManFm and Thunar file managers.
On checking dmesg, I see following at messages:
...

How can I access files on my mobile with usb tethering? Thanks for your help.
