I already installed ifuse via this code:

sudo apt-get install ifuse libimobiledevice-utils

and then when I want to pair via this code:

idevicepair unpair && idevicepair pair

I get the following reply:

will@Will-PC:~$ idevicepair unpair && idevicepair pair usbmuxd_get_device_list: error opening socket! No device found, is it plugged in?

And yes I did have my phone unlocked the whole process.

Help would be appreciated!
