When connecting my Samsung Galaxy S3 to Ubuntu 13.04, the phone is recognized OK and the file system is working. Picture files (like jpg, png...) cannot be seen as thumbnails and cannot be opened by the picture viewer - gives an error message. I had the same result with other viewers. When copying the same file to the computer, this problem does not occur. This does neither happen on Windows nor when connecting an iPhone to Ubuntu. Any ideas?
