I was searching on google for syncing my iphone 3gs in linux. I have seen many forums which say that Rhythmbox and gtkpod are able to sync iphone but I did not find any of them to be very helpful in my case. Any Way syncing iphone in linux so that I don't have to boot to windows.
I have an iPhone 3GS and Ubuntu 10.04 x64 machine.When I plug in the phone it appears on the desktop.GTKPod opens automatically.When I close it and open RhythmBox, the phone disappears from the desktop.Looking at /var/log/messages, I see nothing about the iPhone being mounted.As an aside, I updated from 9.10 x64 to beta 10.04 x64, then upgraded to release 10.04.
I've noticed there are a few threads started not only here but on other forums asking about gtkpod in KDE I was in the understanding that an iphone cannot sync with KDE as KDE detects it as a camera or an I missing something if so what packages do I need to get it to work in KDE.
I can't seem to get my iphone 3gs to sync with banshee. I had it working before upgrading to 11.04. It recognizes the phone but when I try to sync, I get "the mp3 format is not supported by the device and no converter was found to convert it" I've never run into this problem. I thought the iphone supported mp3 files since that's what worked before.
I'm trying to sync my iPhone (3G, 3.1.2) through Rhythmbox on my newly installed Lucid Lynx. While I can access and transfer music files to my iPhone, upon unmounting the iPhone doesn't update the library nor show the music. If I remount it in Rhythmbox, I can play the files from there. In my file manager I can access my iPhone, but I can't either see the iPod_Control directory nor find anything in Music or Playlists folders. BTW, on Karmic Koala I was able to update music on my iPhone, though it would not always update library.
I have my iPhone synced with iTunes like the rest of the world. I played music music from my iPhone with rythmbox, nd now iTunes doesn't know that my iPhone is even there, and therefor won't sync. Would mounting it to Ubuntu have anything to do with that?
I'm an ubuntu user since a year ago. It is the best thing I did no doubt. But, as always, there is some costs doing this. Specifically, My 3G Iphone can't sync correctly with rhythmbox. Though it says that is synchronized and in rhythmbox appears that indeed it is. But when I go to the 3G's play list do not appear anywhere. p.s. Currently I'm using Maverick.
Take a look at this blog I found while searching for methods to sync your music with Ubuntu Natively!!!! AND it works! Take a look at the screenshot attached. STOKED. Below is a link with instructions: [URL]
Since installing Lucid LYNX LTS on my Netbook. (See: [URL] [#136]). Via USB, I can connect my iPhone 3GS. It gives me two simultaneous choices: Open F-Spot and Open Rythmbox. In addition, I can also "Open / Browse Folder". As such, I can view / import photos and videos made on the phone, as well as video PODCASTS. I can also play my music files
What I cannot do: 1) Play / find my purchased audiobooks [decryption not supported] 2) Locate the mp4 videos / movies (NOT encrypted) that I transferred to the phone via iTunes on my MacBook. 3) Send a file via bluetooth to the phone [the Indicator Applet does allow me go go as far as select the file. It gets to the point of "connecting" then "unknown error occurred"
I cannot sync the addressbook, calendar, or notes on the iPhone with my netbook. I have the following libraries installed: ifuse libmobiledevice-utils libmobiledevice0 libplist++1 libplist1 libusbmuxd1 python-imobildevice usbmuxd NOTA BENE: This phone is NOT jail-broken.
ive spent days figuring out how to sync my iphone 3gs firmware 3.1.3 in ubuntu 10.04. my laptop can detect my iphone, i can actually browse its folder. (i can see photos and music from my phone, i tried to paste some photos in a certain folder and went well, just in ONE folder).
i tried almost all instructions i can find on net, but nothing is working well. i even freshly installed my ubuntu, thinking that i did something wrong in my first attempt. still cant sync music and photos.
i transferred songs already to my phone using itunes in windows (on another laptop). they said that doing this can initialize my iphone, but it didnt work.
I use jpilot on opensuse 11.3 64bit to sync pim data with my Palm Treo 680 via bluetooth. This worked fine until today. Now I get the following error message when I try to sync: Syncing on device bt: Press the HotSync button now dlp_ReadSysInfo error Exiting with status YNC_ERROR_PI_CONNECT Finished.
The last successfull sync was on the 20th October and today is the 24th October. I did not change any settings in jpilot or on my palm device. So I guess there must have been an update of opensuse which causes this error. But I do not now how to look up the updates during this period or how to undo them. Was there an update between the 20th and the 24th Oktober, which might affect either jpilot or bluetooth functionality?
I've got Ubuntu One syncing a single 25MB folder on 4 computers. On one of these computers, the ubuntuone-syncdaemon process constantly pegs the CPU, using from 50-80% long after any sync-able files have been modified and successfully synced. The process is only using 8.9MB of RAM.
Specs: Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) Kernel 2.6.32-24-generic 1000.8 MB RAM Pentium 4 2.53GHz Free disk space: 280.9 GB System monitor shows 56.8% total RAM usage, 15.4% swap file usage.
Audio sync method. "Stretches/squeezes" the audio stream to match the timestamps, the parameter is the maximum samples per second by which the audio is changed. -async 1 is a special case where only the start of the audio stream is corrected without any later correction.Searching the net makes one believe that this command is just some sort of magic.People just put it in the line and it just works. Isn't that nice?
It says nothing about how to change the TIME the audio starts syncing. Like do I want it to start 5 seconds delayed? Or what about 5 seconds sooner?What if the audio gets more out of sync as the video goes on? Can I slip it a little at a time? What? No magic?No one mentions a file that already has badly synced audio.So what -async 1 really does is simply start the audio at the beginning of the file. LIKE AS IF THAT ISN'T STANDARD PROCEDURE?So what is the exact solution to syncing a messed up video? And why can't it just do the proper "timestamp" sync in the first place?No docs, no info and you are left out in the cold.
Fedora 14 is the first time i have used linux on my machine for any length of time at all. I have been using Gnome but i prefer KDE so have both installed. Now I have libimobile (is that what its called?) and ifuse and have had a bit of a look around. why it mounts automatically in Gnome but not KDE and how can i mount it in KDE?
I can get my system to use the iPhone to tether up, but I don't know how to make Network Manager to do this for me within the GUI somehow. This does work on my eeePC netbook using Ubuntu UNR 10.10. Here is where I think the problem lies. The system sees the phone but doesn't create an ethernet device for it (on either system).
But a: ifconfig wwan0 up dhclient wwan0 will make the connection. On Ubuntu there is a file (/etc/networks) that one can plug some info into, and when once connects the iPhone up to it, it will automatically connect. The data is: auto wwan0 iface wwan0 inet dhcp. How would I either make NM work, or accomplish the long way in Fedora, as I could in Ubuntu?
I am trying to connect my iphone 3GS to my netbook using Fedora 15, tethered via a USB cable. When I first plug it in, it recognizes it as a digital media player and pops up a dialog asking what I want to do, recognizes it as media with digital photos on it and pops up another dialog asking what I want to do, mounts the documents folder on the iphone and opens an file manager window, and adds an eth1 interface dynamically. The network manager recognizes it as a wired connection and tries to connect to it. This times out and the interface is left off.
This is so close to just working right out of the box. I really commend the Fedora team for this release. I am thinking of submitting this as a bug, but just want to ask here first, is there there something I don't know about the iphone which makes it unable to connect to eth1? Mentioned here was an ad-hoc network connection, is this mandatory for connecting to iphone through the USB cable? Ideally it would just connect to the cellular network and pull an IP, but I'm a newbie with this and am not sure about the level of security that affords me.
I have an iPhone and I am trying to get Internet tethering to work. I know tethering works on the phone as I successfully got it running under windows. I followed the instructions at the following site
Next I downloaded and compiled ipeth. Note: to do this I also had to install kernel headers, I also had to edit the ipheth.c file as per the instructions on the site for fedora 14 (see below for more)
git clone git://github.com/dgiagio/ipheth.git cd ipheth/ipheth-pair make sudo make install cd ../ipheth-driver/ sudo make install
This allowed me to successfully make the kernel driver. Once this was made I also copied the config file for the kernel driver to /usr/modipheth.d folder as per the readme instructions in the ipheth*folder.
When I type modprobe ipheth it doesn't state it's an incorrect command. I then plugged in my iPhone. Fedora detected it was plugged in and loaded the iPhone logo on the desktop. Internet tethering is turned on within the phone, however network manager does not see it as a device.
I have a machine with a fresh install of fc14. When I first created the machine about 3 weeks ago I could attache my iPhone 3GS and FC14 (gnome) would detect it and I could use shotwell and rhythmbox fine. Ya!
Now as of about 1.5 weeks ago, when I plug in my phone I get a pop up with : Unable to mount Brian's iPhone DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) dmesg doesn't show any errors, just that an iPhone was attached. Is this just me or are others seeing this? Any ideas as to what might be wrong?
This will allow you to use iphones' data plan as a wireless access point. Currently setup instructions are only posted for windows/mac using a helper app to configure the laptop. Here are the instructions I followed to setup iphonemodem2 to work under Fedora 10: Download iPhoneModem2 from a jailbroken iphone using Cydia. Create a new wireless network on Fedora with the following settings:
a) SSID = "iPhoneModem" b) Mode = Ad-hoc c) IPv4 Method = Automatic (DHCP)
Connect laptop and iphone to new wireless network. Start iphonemodem app on iphone. The "traffic" does not update; the "status" says "Wrong Wifi Network"; and the signal strength says 0%. However, the network connection should be there as long as you have a data signal to your service provider.
