I fixed this problem. I use AS 2.1 and JDK1.7 while it required me to update JDK1.8 for some functions. I download the java setup file. Maybe I only installed jre but not jdk. so AS always warn me that "Please choose a valid JDK directory". So I guess the asker's problem same as me that you should install a JDK but not jre.

I don't think that this is a ubuntu issue. If you check out this LINK it says that your G5 defaults to charging only mode and that you need to set it manually in order to transfer files.

Using the default MTP/usb It's easier than everyone is saying, first notice that when GVFS mounts the MTP mount it'll be available under. You can force this by opening the phone up in a graphical file-browser (thunar/nautilus/etc) /run/user/$UID/gvfs go in there. Assuming you have one mtp device, this should work: $ cd /run/user/$UID/gvfs/mtp* Find ...

I had the same unstable USB connection problem with my S4. I found that it doesn’t like the 3.0 ports. If you have a 2.0 USB port, use that one instead and I think you’ll do better uploading your videos. I use the VLC media player to view my android videos and it works great for me. Hope this helps :)

Use Google Keep instead. It is much more robust and scalable.

Yes, but you need a rooted device! The app drive Droid will do the rest (on most phones, not all are compatible)! Here's a link to the app on the play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.softwarebakery.drivedroid

Try disabling the firewall, if there's one in your PC. I faced a similar problem: files could be transferred from my Symbian Nokia N8 to my Windows 7 PC, but not vice versa. I temporarily disabled the firewall in my PC, and the transfer worked just fine after that.
