What version of Linux are you running? (just as a point of reference; it
does not make a difference.)

When you connect via USB, does your Linux automatically connect to the
device and show a file manager (Nautilus for Gnome or <I forget> for KDE)?

Does it show hidden files/directories? If not, go to the options and
turn it on (View menus or preferences dialog).

Does the .rockbox directory show up? Is there anything in there? There
should be a dozen or so sub-directories and other assorted files. If
not, try reloading the rockbox software itself, maybe after downloading
the latest build.

See if this helps.
