Linux USB driver

I would like to connect my Nokia 3 to my Linux computer via USB, to copy photos and such. From a first quick connect there doesn't seem to be a Linux USB driver. I expect there's most of what's required in the android core. Nice to be able to connect to windows or OSX. I will have another try but if its already possible I and thereare instructions, that would be handy too.

When connected via a USB data cable to a Mate Desktop Linux, my Nokia 6 prompts whether to allow file transfer. The default is recharge only.

The USB options appear in a notification in the top menu on the phone.

I did not install additional drivers on the PC. Phone as modem via USB works too with the standard drivers in Linux (it mimics an Ethernet connection).

Yes. This is what power users need. Also I guess it might be fair for me to share my other similar request here:
