Depends on your phone. There is no single answer to it. Some phones are developed by sane people, and just mount as a USB storage device (like an external hard disk). An icon should appear on your desktop, or you should be asked what you want to do, after you plug in the phone. Some phones are developed by insane people, and will only exchange files if you use the manufacturer's own application. Which is usually Windows only.
Generally, doing an Internet search for "linux brand model
where you replace brand
with your phone's brand and model will turn up something.
Feel free to share your brand and model here. Also, please do share which version of Linux Mint you are using as that may be relevant. If you don't know, please open a terminal and type the following command:
- Code: Select all
Copy the output here (see the terminal's Edit menu for copying text).
