I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 in a Dell XPS15. When plugging in the Ipod it charges but when trying to mount it I can't find it anywhere.

I've done a dmesg | grep usb before plugging the Ipod and I can't see any errors, but when plugged in I see:

[ 2133.483377] usb 2-1.6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
[ 2133.670208] cdc_ether 2-1.6:1.6: wwan0: register 'cdc_ether' at usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.6, Mobile Broadband Network Device, 02:80:37:ec:02:00

[ 2755.394943] usb 3-4: ERROR: Endpoint drop flag = 0, add flag = 1, and endpoint is not disabled.

I don't have any clue how can I try to make the Ipod works because the USB seems to be working fine for other devices (mice, camera,...)

Any thoughts or guide about what can I do?

Edit: If it helps, when doing: lsusb | grep Apple I get:

Bus 003 Device 012: ID 05ac:1299 Apple, Inc.

It appears that the iPod touch doesn't support USB mass-storage, so it won't appear as a disk: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1380?viewlocale=en_US

From what I can see you should be able to use it via Clementine or Amarok though

If you're willing to jailbreak there's some useful information here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/IPod#iPhone.2FiPod_Touch

If it doesn't support USB. How I am supposed to even see it with Clementine or Amarok? It doesn't even seem the Ipod is recognized by the system... –  Nobita Jan 7 '12 at 14:11
    
It does connect via USB, it just doesn't support USB mass-storage (the same kind of protocol used by flash drives, portable HDDs etc.). libimobiledevice.org is used to support the proprietary Apple protocols for interfacing with iDevices –  benwh Jan 7 '12 at 14:37
    
Thanks for your support, but I'm not able to see my Ipod with Clementine. –  Nobita Jan 7 '12 at 17:21
    
Try sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-utils and then ideviceinfo with the Touch plugged in –  benwh Jan 8 '12 at 0:49
    
Thanks again for answering the comment. I've done what asked and with the Ipod plugged in (I've tried both locked and unlocked) I get: "No device found, is it plugged in?" :/ –  Nobita Jan 8 '12 at 10:19
