I am having to try ubuntu now for at least 2 weeks. Since that day, Linux has been replace windows and mac for me. But, I can’t mount my iPhone 4 device on Ubuntu. I already try it for several times, but Ubuntu always show a dialog “Unhandled Error Lockdown” that frustrates me.
Recently, now I can mount iPhone 4 in my Ubuntu. This is what I did:
- 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
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.
