I've been following the instructions in this answer for trying to read my iPhone from Ubuntu. I'm still getting the error in the question. Under Edit 2 of the answer it says to run

idevicepair unpair

But I tried that and just get

idevicepair: command not found

Tried installing idevicepair but no package can be located. What do I need to do to get my iPhone (3GS) working under Ubuntu (11.04)?
