I'm new in Linux please don't laugh at me. I have Samsung galaxy s9 and I'm using mobile data on wifi and decide to try USB tethering on windows its work perfect I get IP and gateway, but in Linux ubuntu 18.04 is not cannot connect to phone I try static IP still, macchanger, (Clockworkmod USB problem in segmentation), easytether connect with some strange IP and again no internet on the phone I try with USB Debug and without still no internet and cannot connect to phone. remove mac address in Identity not help. Linux Mint also cannot connect but windows don't have a problem with USB tethering even in VM.
Now I'm on ubuntu 20.04 from two days and still cannot connect.


Probably a bug in the Samsung S9 firmware since April.
