Check out Airdroid. Being web-based, it works great in both Linux and Windows environments.

Try this. Since it works for Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 it should also work for the corresponding versions of Mint. I use Mint 14 and have a Nexus 4, and a Xoom tablet running Jelly Bean and both work fine.

At first I thought you meant app development, but it looks like just read the files data from an Android device..

So, there is a media player available that indicates support for same..

Later kernels which will be used by distributions should start to help with this..

Thanks for the replies. What I was reffering to is that I'm not able to move files to and from my device using the gui file manager. I usually get an error saying my device cannot be mounted or the files arent supported. I have the HTC DNA... I had forgotton about good old ADB shell so I was able to get that to work for transferring files.
