You can use 'sshfs' to mount the file system on your tablet. This way, you can more easily browse and edit files on your tablet. First, ensure that you have sshfs installed on your Linux machine.
sudo apt-get install sshfs
sudo pacman -S sshfs
Then create a writable catalog where you want to mount and run sshfs:
mkdir foodir; sshfs firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/root foodir
