No, there isn't...Kies doesn't work on Linux. It's a Samsung product, so if you'd like it, please let them know.

That said, there is little reason to load Kies for your pictures for either your phone or tablet. Plug in your USB cable, and it should just appear as a camera/MTP device. Load Digikam (or other photo-management tool), and import your pictures. You can even send them via Bluetooth from your phone to computer, or email them to yourself (which WOULD be a pain, but it would also work).

Consider Dropbox....it works well on Linux natively, and any pictures you take will be automatically synced between your device and your computer.

If you have Google drive, then you can use it like Dropbox. There is no native Google Drive app for Linux, but InSync is a third-part app that works well. But there's no need, since you can just go onto the Google Drive website, and download files through there. Picasa is a fairly junky program to start with, and they dropped Linux support a while back. There are MANY alternatives to it, like the digikam program mentioned previously.

There is grive, which syncs Google Drive on Linux. It's available in the Debian repositories, and I assume the Ubuntu ones also.

i thought kies air turned your fone into a webserver so you can use your pc's web browser to move files around and txt/answer calls ...

i prefer to use airdroid but there is also droidvnc, sshdroid ...
