In this instructable i will show you how to synchronize-transfer files or photos to your linux pc from ipad/iphone without using itunes or wine compability layer.

This works with all debian based distros. Open up a terminal and copy paste the following 2 lines (1 by 1).

First we update our system..

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-utils libimobiledevice-dev libgpod-dev

That's it. After those steps connect your ipad,iphone and you're ready to go.

Check from a terminal by typing "ideviceinfo" if it print details about your device. Congrats.
