Being that at times I use a netbook for portability (the Macbook Air is too expensive), sometimes I would like to send multiple photos by email by connecting my iPhone 3GS smartphone to it, then moving the pictures. However, with iOS 5, until recently it was impossible to do as I was always getting the “Unhandled Error Lockdown” message. However, now I can mount iPhone 3GS in my Ubuntu. This is what I did (thanks FuelledbyKrawu):
Open terminal, write it: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmcenery/ppa
And that, write it: sudo apt-get update
After that, write it: sudo apt-get upgrade
Now, you need to install ifuse. Write it: sudo apt-get install ifuse
First tool, write it: sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice2
Second tool, write it: sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-utils
The final step, write it: idevicepair unpair && idevicepair pair
If nothing happens, just like me, replug your iDevice. Ubuntu will detect it. Here’s mine:
iPhone on Ubuntu
iPhone detected in gtkpod
By the way, if you want to install gtkpod, although you are not necessarily to do that, you can write: sudo apt-get install gtkpod in your terminal.
I hope this help you to get your iPhone or iPod mounted in Ubuntu.
