Plug it in, make sure you hit "Allow" on the phone screen, and mount it. (click on it on your list of devices in the File Manager to mount it) You'll get a blank window, which is what I'm assuming you're getting now. Umount it by clicking on the eject symbol next to the device but don't unplug it. Mount it again and you should see your DCIM folder, which is all you'll have access to.

I know, this sounds weird, but I have the same model of phone and it works.

I don't know, they're hit or miss on working with Linux.
