OK, I did a little reading at the Ubuntu forums: Ubuntu Forums
A couple of things to check, on your phone when you connect you should show a usb icon on the top status bar of your phone. If you can select it for "more options" make sure that your phone is in MTP mode.(Media Transfer Protocol).
USB debugging didn't make any difference with mine, I think that all that option does is to allow a PC application to run scripts on the phone for the purposes of testing apps.(Im no app writer, but that's pretty much what I understand of it's function.)
When you connect your phone to the PC you should get a couple of pop-up boxes asking about connection options. I tried both, ignore, and open as a folder, but neither one made any real difference. Once I cleared all of the pop-ups off of the screen I took the mouse to the left menu bar and scrolled down to select the "media" device for the phone. (Ubuntu considers the phone as a media player)
There were folders and files to select or do what ever......
GMTP did also work, though it was a little finicky......
