I am trying to plug my iPhone with iOS7 to my Ubuntu computer. I have installed everything that is necessary, however I get the following error when I run sudo ifuse /mnt/myiphone,

usbmuxd_get_device_list: error opening socket!
No device found, is it connected?
If it is make sure that your user has permissions to access the raw usb device.
If you're still having issues try unplugging the device and reconnecting it.

When you plugin in your iPhone does it show up on the launcher? (I am assuming you are running Unity.) – Cammy_the_block Jun 24 '14 at 18:06
@Cammy_the_block No, there is no launcher (I am not using Unity). – user284234 Jun 24 '14 at 18:26
