I am new to Linux; I installed Lubuntu 12.10 on my Acer Netbook. I am trying to manage my iPhone through the computer. I googled up information on how to use Libimobiledevice.

I sourced the software ppa.

I installed libimobiledevice* and that installed some other stuff too (I do not know how to check what was downloaded and installed).

Ran all the updates ( I guess there are no updates for this package on quantal, or something else because it will not update the ppa)

Anyways I plug in my phone, enter the passcode, and I am able to browse through my removable media in the file manager but the phone does not pop up on desktop. My iPhone is using iOS6.

Please advise on what and how I need to do? Is there something I am missing?
