transferring photos from Slackware to iPhone 5?


Hello,
I am running Slackware64-14.0 with the generic 3.2.29 kernel.
I installed ifuse and libimobiledevice and managed to mount iPhone 5
under /media/iPhone. I can see the iPhone directory structure under /media/iPhone.
However, I do not know how to transfer pictures from my laptop to the iPhone. I tried directly copying photos to the Photos subfolder of the iPhone, but I cannot see the photos from the iPhone. I open the Fotos application, but nothing is to be seen there.
Is transferring of files to the iPhone actually possible? Gtkpod is not an option, because it does not support iPhone 5 still, and iTunes has still no Linux version.

Best regards,
Martin

In slackware, connected to your home router:
/etc/rc.d/rc.sshd start (chmod +x if needed)
run ifconfig and note your IP

On iphone 5:
ssh in & do an sftp?

works on android.

OK, I DO NOT use iPhone!!!

But I think following MAY help

attach the phone to the computer

Open terminal

change to root

then

# ls /dev/sdb*

OR

# fdisk -l

# mount -t hfs /dev/sdb(x) /mnt

-> if hfs is not viable, use hfsplus instead

-> where (x) is the partition of your iPhone where user's data is stored...For more information follow the link below

Probably it is 3.

Now you have got it mounted, copy anything as usual

Thank You very much for Your suggestion. I had no idea I could use sftp in iPhone. I used iTransfer to
download my pictures and and music from the PC. Thank You very much again!

I'm no iphone person, but I'm sure there is an app to do it if the system doesn't.

First time for sshd in slackware, you may have to generate keys.
/usr/bin/ssh-keygen
