This a constantly moving target. If you find a tool that works, Apple breaks it in a 'security update' (they sometimes use the term subjectively). For some iPods, try replacing the firmware with Rockbox. For iPhones stick with Windows or a Mac, or try setting up a Windows guest OS with VirtualBox in Ubuntu. Apple will never allow this kind of ...

You don't have to jailbreak your Iphone with Ubuntu however you will probably have to add a new "PPA source" to your Ubuntu installation to get the required packages for Ubuntu to Recognise your phone. The ppa you will need to add is ppa:pmcenery/ppa to add this open a Terminal from the accessories menu and type this at the prompt. sudo add-apt-repository ...

You make no mention of Ubuntu, but you posted this in AskUbuntu. I'm going to assume you are moving photos like this iPhone -> Ubuntu -> eBay, since anything else would probably be off-topic. Shotwell can do this easily, it's in the preferences menu 'Rename imported files to lowercase': If Shotwell can't import directly from the iPhone, just ...

I'm not sure if it's the best way, but Rhythmbox with libimobiledevice (both installed by default in lucid) works for me. There are a couple of glitches to be aware of, however: There's no full-library sync. You have to manually drag individual songs to the iPhone. About 10 seconds or so after Rhythmbox transfers the songs, the iPhone screen switches to ...

I'm not sure about changing how they are uploaded, but if you are uploading them to a folder on ubuntu, you can perform a mass rename to rename everything at once if it makes it easier. Open up a terminal and type cd /path/to/photos rename 's/\.JPG$/.jpg/' *.JPG And that will find all files in the directory ending with .JGP and change them to .jpg.

While some older versions of iTunes can currently be made to work with Wine (or Crossover), they cannot be used to update or sync newer iPods The reason is that Wine lacks a handler for Windows USB device drivers, and the iPod acts as a custom USB device. This is the same reason that software that requires a special key dongle also doesn't (yet) work in ...

You can do it with mpd. You have to set up the daemon such that it allows ssh connection (basically comment the line bind to adress: 127.0.0.1 in the config file /etc/mpd/), then it will play in the background. You can then control it from any client (i.e. from any device which can connect to your PC) there is a list there: ...

Lines in code need to be typed into terminal. sudo apt-get install ifuse libimobiledevice-utils Unlock iDevice from device's lock screen, plug it in idevicepair unpair && idevicepair pair Unplug the iDevice Make sure the lock screen is still unlocked Plug it back in

Here's what worked for me (from imobiledevice.org): When your device is plugged in, close out the error. Then run idevicepair unpair && idevicepair pair Then unplug your device and plug it back in. Also, if it worked in the first place, but then you reset the iPhone (used Erase all Content and Settings option in the Reset menu in Settings) and ...

You can run the apps from Android with an Android emulator, see this was asked before: Can I run Android apps on Ubuntu?. Maybe you can re-compile the source of some app to work on linux. Would you explain better the similarities you found between deb and apk? Finally, about the quality of apps, I think it is a matter of opinion. In my opinion, linux has the ...

Found an excellent script here courtesy of Evan Boldt on how to do this. Thanks Evan! First find out the id of your device by using lsusb The create a script under your home dir (let's use /home/me/iPhoneLock.sh for this example) that looks sort of like this: #!/bin/bash #Replace with the ID of your USB device id="ID ffff:1234 Apple, Inc. iPhone 3G" ...

This is how I achieved it. First don't forget to enable tethering in iPhone settings Use blueman (sudo aptitude blueman), it is more userfriendly In blueman settings make sure that in "Local services" PAN support switch in "NetworkManager" In blueman plugins settings make sure that NMPanSupport is enabled (and MNIntegration is disabled) Pair Blueman with ...

When building software you often have to make a call as to whether to release today with some features missing, or to release later with those features. It working well on ipad was deemed a “nice to have” feature, not critical enough to block release, and so was left for a later date. We are aware of the deficiency however, and will be enhancing the app in ...

Currently the only emulator for testing iOS applications is build for MacOS. There is a work in process to bring an emulation software to linux which you might want to take a look at...but judging by the development status it'll be a while till it's usable. http://www.iemu.org/index.php/Main_Page The long and complicated way of achieving your goal would be ...

I recently checked out the bug tracking page and I noticed a solution. The solution is to download libimobiledevice4_1.1.6-git20140105_amd64.deb. This can be found here: https://launchpadlibrarian.net/161787269/libimobiledevice4_1.1.6-git20140105_amd64.deb Once downloaded, point your terminal to the location of the .deb file and execute the following: ...

I found a project called touchmoused that simulates Logitech Touch Mouse app. Description touchmouchd will act as a server for Logitech's Touch Mouse app for IOS or other clients using the same network protocol. The Logitech Touch Mouse app will allow you to control your mouse and keyboard using your IOS device. Implemented features Mouse ...

The short answer is: You can't. The iPhone is made of proprietary hardware and software. The biggest issue is getting iboot to boot another OS. There was once a project (I think is gone now, due to developers unable to get it to work) to get Android to run on the iPhone. If android can run, then the next step is to get CyanogenMod to work. Apple provides ...

To get iPhone USB tethering working again, just install the following packages: ipheth-utils. libimobiledevice-dev libimobiledevice-utils You can install these packages through apt-get command or through the synaptic package manager sudo apt-get install synaptic

Apples support of Linux is non-existing. There is not a single version of iOS that supports Ubuntu. Please file a bug with Apple. Also, Apple frequently uses obfuscation techniques, which are likely to break the music database on iDevices. RE: I just want to add here that I have filed numerous bug reports with Apple, also mentioning that I refuse to have ...

Go to your home folder. Press Ctrl+H to show hidden files. Navigate to .gconf/apps/banshee/state/ipod. Delete the %gconf.xml file (it will be recreated the next time you start Rhythmbox). Restart Rhythmbox. If it isn't plugged in already, plug in your iPhone. Now you should be able to view your music files on your iPhone.

Banshee is more than capable of syncing content from your library to your iPhone however it depends on the model of iPhone and the software version installed on it. The current version of gtkpod does not support the iPhone 4 (and essentially iOS 5) see the SourceForge release notes here

Just going to add that it's libgpod that currently can't handle DBVersion > 4. The most recent release goes back to July, as does the most recent commit ( http://gtkpod.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=gtkpod/libgpod;a=summary ) I don't know what the status is but my guess is that it's currently on hold and not being worked on. They however implemented ...

I'm only going to answer about Ubuntu One; your question is actually several questions rolled into one, and I can only answer for what I know. You can't use the Ubuntu One logo as your application icon. You can, however, use the Ubuntu One logo and name within your application if your intention is to use it to indicate a “works with Ubuntu One”, as long as ...

This has changed since the initial question was asked. Since Ubuntu 11.04, you can share local printers so they are available via AirPrint. AirPrint support is either built-in a printer or not. For printers that don't have this support built-in (which is most printers bought before AirPrint was introduced in 2010), AirPrint support can be achieved by ...

To add to what Chipaca's written, I should say that you are not only allowed but encouraged to build apps like this that work with Ubuntu One. I'm currently in the process of documenting all these APIs as part of the nascent Ubuntu One app developer programme, and so I'm here to help; if there's anything I can do to make it easier for you to build apps like ...

I had a bit of a hard time with this at first. First try just right clicking on your iPhone in Banshee and selecting "Import to Library" that should theoretically import everything. If not, install GTK-Pod from the Ubuntu Software Center, it works great for pulling music off of iPods / iPhones and organizes them with proper file titles. Once you've ...
