As the title stipulates, I am trying to mount my iPhone 5 in Arch Linux.

lsusb finds the device
and returns
Bus 005 Device 006: ID 05ac:12a8 Apple, Inc. iPHone5/5C/5S/6

dmesg | grep "Apple" returns nothing

i have ifuse, libimobiledevice, and usbmuxd installed, but ipheth returns "command not found"

idevicepair pair returns "No device found, is it plugged in?"
ideviceinfo also returns "No device found, is it plugged in?"

Any hints?


EDIT dmesg | grep ipheth returns:

   [   20.150489] ipheth 5-6:4.2: Apple iPhone USB Ethernet device attached
    [   20.150578] usbcore: registered new interface driver ipheth
    [   20.155172] ipheth 5-6:4.2 enp0s29f7u6c4i2: renamed from eth0

lsmod | grep ipheth returns:

ipheth                 16384  0
usbcore               172032  5 uhci_hcd,ehci_hcd,ehci_pci,ipheth

Did you reinstall all packages ?

// ifuse libimobiledevice usbmuxd

To test open two terminals:


# usbmuxd -f -v


# idevicepair pair
# idevicebackup -i backup --full backupdir

If working you can enable and start the systemd service:

# systemctl enable usbmuxd
# systemctl start usbmuxd
