I've always had success with gtkam at least in regards to moving pictures out of the phone.
Sure I can tell you how I got it to work, but I'm not sure what hardware and iOS DBs will and won't work.
With Fedora you were using probably using gvfs to automount your phone on your desktop. Haven't figured out how to do that in Slack yet, I'm wondering if I need a GNOME environment or if it doesn't work with Thunar for some reason.
Here's how I got it working in Slackware. Get usbmuxd
, in that order. All are on slackbuilds.org.
Next make a mount point for ifuse in /media, NOT /mnt, and set permissions appropriately so your user can mount there. Then you can mount with ifuse. ifuse /media/ipod
, unmount with fusermount -u /media/ipod
If you want music/ipod synchronization, you only have three options (gtkpod, rhythmbox and amarok) AFAIK. Since the latter two are Gnome and KDE, I use gtkpod. Later versions of gtkpod, after 1.0.0 might have kinky anjunta dependencies.
That's it really. gtkpod should find your device after you mount it in /media.
