iphone mounting problems can't tranfer music etc

Post by bluestrypes » Fri Jul 03, 2015 5:15 pm

First I apologize in advance if this has been covered before, but I never found what I was lookin for via the search bar.
Here goes, I'm wanting to transfer mainly music between an iphone 5s and my lm17.1 os.
From the looks of things itunes won't work in any way, and clementine says my iphone won't mount, but I can see it in the device list. I would greatly appreciate any help or advice on this subject, as it's bout the only reason I still keep windows on my machine. It just becomes annoying having to switch os's in order to add a song or 2 to my iphone. Windows is soo slow :roll:
btw, I do have a few of the libmobiledevice things downloaded.

If the mods feel that my post is in the wrong place etc, please do with it as you see fit.
However any help is appreciated, thank you

iTunes doesn't work in Linux, period.

Apparently it works in Windows in Virtualbox, which may be preferable to dual booting.

In an attempt to keep my sanity, I stopped trying to get the alternative to work.

But I do have have a question about using media monkey without itunes altogether.
See on my windows os I don't have itunes installed at all, but with this hack

I can transfer music perfectly in windows with media monkey. Would it be feasable to get this hack to work in linux mint?
