When I plug my Ipod into my computer it does not display it in my home folder or on the sidebar, But 12.04 does. Why?

  • Welcome to AskUbuntu! What doesn't display it? Windows? Ubuntu? You might want to add more information so people can help you out more easily.

  • After you connected your iPod open a terminal and enter dmesg? Please the last 5--10 lines of output to your question.

Ubuntu doesn't came with Apple devices support by default. To see your iPod, you must have ifuse installed. To install it, run:

sudo apt-get install ifuse

After that, replug your iPod, it should appear in nautilus
