Just as the title states how do I install that library to manage my iPhone?

  • On my 12.04 the target sorce list file is here: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-precise.list I have changed precise by maverick, but I still got Package not found error message. – user73787 Jun 28 '12 at 11:30

First try this:

  1. Type in terminal sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmcenery/ppa
  2. Then run sudo apt-get update.
  3. Then run sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice.

If it says Package not found:

  1. Type in terminal sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery.list
  2. It will open Gedit, a text editor. Replace these two lines...

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu oneiric main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu oneiric main

    ...with these two lines:

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu maverick main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/pmcenery/ppa/ubuntu maverick main
  3. Save the file.

  4. Then again in terminal, run sudo apt-get update.
  5. Then run sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice.
