I've got Debian 8.5 running on top of Chrome OS, I plug in my Galaxy On5 and ChromeOS recognizes it instantly, Debian doesn't. I have mtp tools installed, and when I run mtp-detect I get the following output:

Unable to open ~/.mtpz-data for reading, MTPZ disabled.
libmtp version: 1.1.8

Listing raw device(s)
Device 0 (VID=04e8 and PID=6860) is a Samsung Galaxy models (MTP).

There is a newer version of mtp-tools availible in backports, so you could try if it resolves the issue.
