possible to access internet on moto e4 via usb connection to ubuntu desktop computer?

Just bought a motorola moto e4. This is the first cell phone I have ever used, so I don’t know much about them. Is it possible to access the internet on my cellphone via my xubuntu 18.04 desktop comp with a direct usb connection? I have a plugables adapter which works when I plug it into the cellphone and then into my cable modem/router via lan. But this drains the battery fast. I would like to access the internet on my phone while at the same time charging the battery. (I can charge the battery and access the net on my phone via wifi from my modem/router, but prefer not to use wifi if possible).

I have installed mtp-tools and jmtpfs. When I plug the phone into my xubuntu 18.04 desktop, an icon for moto e4 appears on the desktop. I swipe down from the top on my phone and there is written “USB for file transfer” (Other options are “charge this device” , “transfer photos” and “use device as midi” . I have selected “use for file transfer” but still have no internet on the phone. Can anyone help? Please note I am not very expert with linux, so don’t assume too much knowledge on my part.

Update: I enabled usb tethering on my phone and it now says the phone is tethered, but I still have no internet access on phone. Is there a setting in xubuntu 18.04 that must be changed?

How do I install MATE desktop icons?

How do I install MATE desktop icons?

I have installed standard MATE from repositories on an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS system, this way:

sudo apt install mate-desktop 

at this point, the option to select MATE at the cog in the greeter did not appear, so I had to run

sudo apt install mate-session-manager 

after which MATE did appear at the cog in the greeter. I have installed mate-utils because I could not make screenshots without it

sudo apt install mate-utils 

Still, for many apps the icons are missing:
