When i plug a mobile device to my ubuntu (18.04) it prompt an empty file browser, and on the mobile it ask me to approve the computer to explore my files. If i choose "approve" it work as expected, but if i choose "deny" it prompt another browser - and both windows show my home folder.

This behavior repeat itself and i can't tell why. It seems like a bug but didn't find similar questions.

Tried with Samsung J7, Samsung S8, LG Q7 and LG G5.

Wonder if it something i should worry about or if it is well-known bug...

  • Not a bug. Files usually opens with any inserted storage device. – GabrielaGarcia Jul 10 at 19:31
  • I know. but it opens another window while pressing "deny", and both showing the same folder. Expected result is that when i plug it it will prompt files, but if i deny the computer view the files it will close (instead opening another same window - like windows OS acts). – A.

  • It's perfectly normal. – GabrielaGarcia Jul 10 at 19:37
