I'd like to sync my music and transfer it to my iPhone in Ubuntu 13.04. Trouble is I've tried using Banshee, Rhythmbox, GTKPod and nothing happens. Banshee goes through the process of viewing/adding tracks and it even "appears" to sync music, but when I check it on my iPhone, there is absolutely no music on the device. Over at the libimobiledevice.org website, it states
Latest Release: 1.0.7 Development/Unstable Release: 1.1.5
Tested with iPod Touch 1G/2G/3G/4G, iPhone 1G/2G/3G/3GS/4/4S/5, iPad 1/2/3rd Gen and Apple TV running up to firmware 6.1.3 on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.
So I believe I should be able to sync my device. However Ubuntu's version of libimobiledevice is 1.1.4, so how can I update that package exactly? I don't really want to use an unstable package to get syncing to work, but I've found no other solutions. I have even tried installing iTunes with PlayonLinux and sadly, syncing is not supported with Wine at this time. Any suggestions? Any help would be much appreciated.
