Oddly enought I never had any trouble connecting the few phones that I
had with linux but always had pain with windows (due to drivers not
being ported to windows 8...)
it depends on how the usb connect is set on the android device, there
is under advenced settings for usb connection a few things that may
change like mtp connection for media sync , or direct connect,  there
is also ftp access , it really depends on how the driver is made. old
android phones will attempt direct connect, some prefer mtp, and some
refuse unless they are told to connect either way,   the htc one
should be able to direct connect I think, at last the one S does (I
really should root this one)  my Htc Status does direct connect (on
stock rom and on cm11) I just had to uncheck the mtp setting em...
can't remember where exactly O.o
I had the adb installed if it helps
