I want to get the photos off an iPhone 3. I am using Ubuntu 10.04. When I plug it in via the USB port, the phone buzzes but nothing happens on the computer.

This thread suggested adding a repository that would upgrade your libimobiledevice package. I did that and it still does nothing when I plug it in.

I tried following these instructions on Ubuntu Geek. It couldn't find the package libiphone-utils, but I continued with the instructions and tried to mount the phone anyway. This is what happens when I try to mount it:

$ ifuse /mnt/ipod
Failed to connect to lockdownd service on the device.
Try again. If it still fails try rebooting your device.
Any ideas for what I can do? I'm just using this phone as a camera.
