I have KDE Connect & GS Connect installed on both devices (KDE on my Tablet & GS on Ubuntu) & the devices still won't show each other. Is there something I'm missing? Please help me out here.

When I have my tablet connect to my desktop pc I boot up my desktop first. Than I boot up the tablet and pair the 2 devices. Try clicking the "Refresh" button.
Make sure KDE Connect is up to date.

Is Ubuntu installed on a desktop or laptop?

Sorry, I'm not familiar with GS Connect.

I got it paired but it won't Mount. How do I fix this?
I don't know.
I've never had a mounting issue.

I think you have to install sshfs so it will mnt.

KDE Connect utilizes SSHFS in order to securely and wirelessly mount your Android device’s file system to your computers. You will be able to browse all of the files on your device via your preferred File Manager whether that be Dolphin, Nemo, Nautilus, Thunar, or etc.
This feature is available in practically all versions of KDE Connect but you will need to install the sshfs package in order to utilize it. KDE’s Dolphin file manager will automatically detect the device but if you are using a different file manager on another desktop environment then you will need to launch the Browse device option from the Indicator menu.

sudo apt install sshfs

Here's the article I found with the above info.

Maybe look in the KDE Forum if you are still having trouble.

What tablet do you have?
