Please link to to the instructions you're following? –  Jorge Castro Apr 9 '12 at 12:56
    
It is the INSTALL file in the tar.gz –  user54092 Apr 10 '12 at 16:50

I have not added the pmcenery/ppa to my software sources and I have libimobiledevice available in the Software Centre.

Simply open the Software Centre and type libimobiledevice in the search box, you should see a result like the following;

libimobiledevice results

Select it for installation and once complete you should get the following;

libimobiledevice installed

You should note that the version in the software centre is 1.1.1-4 and according to the developers website it is the development release.

Launchpad has packages for all versions of Ubuntu from Oneiric to Quantal

Yes it is the development version, but it doesn't yet support iOS7 (see github.com/libimobiledevice/libimobiledevice/issues/20) –  NoBugs Jan 4 at 2:35

Just type in the Terminal (Invoke it by pressing Cltr + Alt + T) this:

sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice2

From what I know, the package is already included in the default repositories.

Do this in terminal
1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmcenery/ppa
2. sudo apt-get update
3. sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice

If it says Package not found(it will most probably then):

  1. sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. Replace
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu precise main
    and
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu precise main
    by
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu maverick main
    and
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu maverick main.
  3. Save the file.
  4. sudo apt-get update
  5. sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice

If that does not work manaully download the ppa files for maverick(links below)(these are packages for 32 bit)
Libgpod-common
Libgpod4
Libimobiledevice1
Libplist1
libusbmuxd1
usbmuxd
