Not really. Mines not rooted. Just to show. Different distro. Same phone steps as described by others. No problemo,

Nothing special added or done on my distro. Walla

Hence why I am saying operator error maybe on the phone settings end.
Because I can do this on Ubuntu and Debian based distros

Just to clarify though. My phone is one of these

To disconnect. I just pick unmount in my file manager with the icon in the l/h panel and unplug the usb cable when it is done unmounting the phone.

Easy Peasy.

Just to show when things won't work via a regular file manager.
Like in my AntiX linux install which uses spacefm and rox file manager.
With no automount given like in Ubuntu or MX linux with XFCE.

But using a Window Manager instead like Icewm. I installed Airdroid on my phone.
Signed up after the application install so I could log in.
My phone is turned on.
No developer settings touched. I open the Airdroid app on my phone.
Then I go to http://web.airdroid.com/

I log in. I open my music folder in my phone in Airdroid shown in the screenshot below

Then I open rox file manager in Antix and open my Music folder. I drag and drop a music mp3 file from rox file manager to my browser window music file on my phone that is shown open. It loads the mp3 on the phone. Airdroid screeny below.

http://postmyimage.com/img2/736_screensh.jpg

http://postmyimage.com/img2/920_screensho.jpg

This is on a bare window manager install with no special bells or whistles to need mountup. Everything is handled through the airdroid app and firefox in my Antix laptop.

Just showing more ways to skin a cat.

Edit: I borrowed the idea and thanked LennyUsesManjero for

You can also try using web based managers like Airdroid. It uses the web browser as a file manager to connect with your device and do file transfers and more

Google pixel smartphone was released just a few weeks ago.
With linux, you'll probably need to give it more time before Google provides the compatible drivers.

Can you use it on Windows or Mac OS right now?
Have you tried to find out?
Maybe it doesn't work with them either.

You have a Google phone! So Google will be able to tell you what info you have on their phone and what hard disk serial number you transferred that info to.
They know your phone and now they know your pc.
But hey, a new phone is cool, right?

I use KDE Connect to transfer files when phone/computer on same network. There is an app on Google Play for it and in Debian, probably Ubuntu too, you can apt-get install it.
