    How are you trying to connect to the phone? USB/WiFi?

    I currently do not use a Samsung phone so i can only tell you how my phone behaves:

    If i want to setup an USB-connection i have to choose (on the phone) between those connection types
    • file transfer
    • USB-tethering
    • MIDI
    • PTP


    Only file transfer will grant me access to the complete file system of the phone (except the system area). However that might be different with your phone.

    Another way to get access to your phones file system (via USB cable) is to use adb. There is no official openSUSE package for adb but you can download the Android platform tools from Google.

    Are you using the USB cable supplied with the phone? If not that might cause problems. Several years ago i had a Samsung Galaxy S2 which would only work with the original Samsung USB cable.

    Yes, you have to switch the phone to file transfer mode:
