Everytime I plug my iPhone into my computer (Ubuntu 11.10) a folder pops up titled "Documens on Jamie's iPhone."

How do I stop this?

Initially it asked me what I wanted to do,but I must have hit something on accident to choose to open a folder.

I also want to know the answer to this question - I can't figure out how to stop the 'Documents on iPhone' folder from opening automatically. – nathan.f77 May 23 '12 at 4:05

Have you tried:

sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-utils;idevicepair unpair && idevicepair pair

Sorry, this doesn't solve the problem. The folder still opens automatically. – nathan.f77 May 23 '12 at 4:05
