Can't automount

Reported by Akovia | July 6th, 2011 @ 10:52 PM

I've read just about everything I could find to help myself, but I need help it appears.

Running xubuntu lucid and was under the impression it should've just worked. Poked around and ended up adding the
pmcenery/ppa. That didn't help but I can see the phone in shotwell.

I also have a problem with banshee in that it used to see the phone but couldn't transfer songs. The error was "The mp3 format is not supported by the device, and no converter was found to convert it (in `Banshee.Dap')" but according to this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/banshee/+bug/705716,
it is not a banshee error and was fixed for others by using the pmcenery/ppa. Anyway now the phone won't show up at all anymore in banshee.

iOS 4.0.1
Xubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) 2.6.32-32-generic SMP i686 GNU/Linux
Xfce 4 Desktop Environment - version 4.6.1 (Xfce 4.6)

ideviceinfo gives no errors *idevicepair procedure went without error

idevicesyslog repeats this:

Wed Jul  6 18:37:32 unknown CommCenter[33] <Notice>: MessageCenterModel is telling PDP context 2 to go active.
Wed Jul  6 18:37:32 unknown CommCenter[33] <Notice>: Telling PDP context 2 to go active.
Wed Jul  6 18:37:32 unknown CommCenter[33] <Notice>: PDP Context 2 cannot be made active since data is not allowed. Reason: -1@@@

**gvfs-afc-volume-monitor** reports "*creating volume for device uuid ........*" then just hangs.

I'm happy to post any info I'm missing, just hoping to get some guidance.

    I also have noticed from mtab that it tried? to mount to ~/.gvfs, but I don't see any files mounted there. In thunar there is a lock emblem on the folder and it is set read-only.

    gvfs-fuse-daemon /home/user/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev,user=user 0 0

    I unmounted the folder to set the permissions to 770, but as soon as the iphone connects, it's back to read-only. I've also reinstalled all the gvfs packages.

    Is this the correct behavior, or is this possibly the root of the problem?
