    Re: HOWTO : ipod touch 3G sync over USB without jailbraking

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

    2. Install the following necessary packages
    $ sudo apt-get install gvfs gvfs-backends gvfs-bin gvfs-fuse libgvfscommon0 ifuse libgpod libiphone-utils libiphone0 python-iphone ibplist++1 libplist-utils python-plist libusb-1.0-0 libusb-1.0-0-udeb libusbmuxd1 usbmuxd


    and I get:

    don@don-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install gvfs gvfs-backends gvfs-bin gvfs-fuse libgvfscommon0 ifuse libgpod libiphone-utils libiphone0 python-iphone ibplist++1 libplist-utils python-plist libusb-1.0-0 libusb-1.0-0-udeb libusbmuxd1 usbmuxd
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package ifuse
    don@don-desktop:~$

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Interesting note: if you happen to have an iPhone that's jailbreaked and has OpenSSH installed, you can use this guide to tether the iPhone's internet connection. The usbmuxd package (which gets installed along with iFuse) comes with a nifty utility called iproxy that allows you to create a tunnel to the device:
    Code:
    iproxy 2222 22 &
    This creates a tunnel from port 2222 to the port your iPhone's OpenSSH listens on by default.
    Next use SSH to create a SOCKS proxy to the tunnel:
    Code:
    ssh -D 1080 -p 2222 root@localhost
    Now all you have left to do is to set Firefox's proxy settings: SOCKS v5 proxy on host 127.0.0.1 and port 1080.
    Also in about:config, set network.proxy.socks_remote_dns to true. Voilà!

    I had the same problem, so I used:

    Code:
    chown username:fuse /mnt/ipod/
    to change the ownership of /mnt/ipod/ from root to me.

    Does this work for the 3.1 fw?

    Does it work with the iPod Touch 1G?

    I have a 3g ipod touch and I didn't need to do the mounting with 9.10. So I didn't need to do the ifuse commands. I used Synaptic to install the packages listed in this thread. I don't know if clicked something extra, but I'm thankful I don't have to do the ifuse commands. So my mkdir was where gvfs mounted it in my home directory.

    mkdir /home/mason/Mason%27s Ipod/iTunes_Control/Device/

    also run the ipod-read-sysinfo-extended to there.

    Rhythmbox sees it and I can play music off of it. If I try to drag files to it or make playlists it actually copies the files to the iPod but they are not seen by the ipod. So I switched to gtkpod and it seems to be working as far as adding songs to the ipod. Gtkpod says that it is ignoring the extended data and that has me worried.

    Just a heads up to people that already have jailbroken iphones. A lot of the directories already exist. I ran into problems because the Device directory's owner was root and not mobile. This is probably due to playing around using ssh with root. Same with artwork files. Changed all to mobile and it works a treat with fw 2.x.

    As for speed, I know it's not as fast as under itunes but it beats using wireless transfer...
