libimobiledevice-1.2.0-x86_64-2.txz -slackwear
libimobiledevice-1.2.0_8 Void Linux

ect
here is there web page you can use it for a guild line to see what files they have on it then check to see if they are in your repo for your brand disto of Linux install them then see if that works - you got a 50/50 on that.

Mine works in Void Linux on my iPhoneSE but not in Slackwear.
iOS 10.3.2

thanks.

I'm running LMDE/2. libimobiledevice4 is in the repos. it's my understanding i need libimobiledevice6; however i don't think that has cleared the backports yet.

i wasted much of the day playing with Bluetooth. I was able to get the device paired and actually got thunar to open the file directory from it...... however i was not able to get a file to copy: it kept reporting "another operation is in progress" ( probably a "false flag" );

i tried to download the libimobiledevice6 from Debian. unfortunately it has additional co-requisites and I don't know how to package it

we are able to get the photos from the iPhone using Windows7 -- but that machine is pretty much on its last legs. I can rebuild it -- but -- the old motherboard is not UEFI so it's wouldn't accept a W10 system ( yea ) . ( probably doesn't have Intel/ME on it either )

could install a different Linux Distro that works with libimobile dual boot or whatever suits you.

I have several different ones here--
my LMDE system wants libcrypt20 at vers. 1.70 or better -- but this is not in the backports.

I can try installing libimobiledevice6 in my KDE system...

I don't know that 6 part but the libimobiledevice-1.2.0_8 if you got a system you can play with - you could use source and compile what you need then install that. https://github.com/libimobiledevice

..... that would still leave the problem with the libgcrypt 1.70 co-requisite.

It's not going to work if you kill the Bluetooth daemon. Don't do that. You may need to kill (or not start) Blueman, perhaps that is using rfcomm channel 9, which obexpushd uses by default.

it appears this is a source code download. i expect it is C code. that would include the source for main and all the functions as well as a make file....

a .deb type file -- includes all the instructions for installing the various modules into the proper places. I've not ever built a .deb file from compiled modules,--

perhaps this is something i should learn

i'll download the source file, and take a peek. it would be nice if i could compile it on my KDE* system and build the .deb hopefully i'd have a .deb that i could install on my service machines.

*KDE -- I have several systems i can experiment on -- a KDE, a MINT18/U-base, and a straight Debian

Does iphone do bluetooth? I heard it only uses wi-fi. But I could be wrong. Just another way of asking the question.
I haven't used american phones no more for quite sometime when Huawei and HTC came into being.
Thank you.

*KDE -- I have several systems i can experiment on -- a KDE, a MINT18/U-base, and a straight Debian

you could just do the ./compile make sudo make install or that deb thing.

as far as creating deb it is not that hard I actually did it for a project I forked a long while ago back when I kind of linked Debian.

all of the instructions on how to do that are out there for the taking. Just need to find them.

Me I'd just install a Distro that is know to work with iPhone already,not trying to push Void Linux but it work and is easy to work with. It is a rolling release so it gets updated often.

I'm am actually going to start looking into seeing where the version is for libimoblexx if it is greater then the one Slackware current is at then I am going to try and figure out how to compile it with a SlackBuild and install it to see if I can get slack to start working again.

because it did work until I updated the iOS - I was using Slackware current ver of libimoble which is an experimental install inside of the Slacks stable version.

Because Void is always current and its libimoble is working and slacks latest in the current is not working. sooo something is funny here - because as far as I know Void pulls off of git ( or where ever the source is) to get the latest to build in their system.
