I'm super puzzled because my phone used to just appear when I plugged it in. It doesn't anymore and The development options are definitely set to allow USB debugging. The phone is charging via USB but doesn't appear in lsusb:

adb devices -l shows nothing.

Based on some instructions on the internet, I also went into my Wireless and Network settings and changed the USB connection settings to "Mass storage" -- they were set to "Ask on connection" though I definitely wasn't getting asked. I don't get any Click here to connect via USB alert either.

I wouldn't be surprised if I clicked some "stop asking me" button at some point, but I don't see how to undo that. What else should I be doing to mount my phone?

I asked the same question over on Ask Ubuntu and someone suggested it was a dodgy USB cable. I'm kind of speechless, but indeed, swapping the cable solved my problems. Now when I plug my phone in to a USB port, I get a little notice that the USB is connected. Onward.
