Iphone 5s

 

version 10.2(14C92)

 

Works like a dream...most of the time...

 

Attach it via usb cable to my pc...running linux mint 18

 

Immediately asked...'do you trust this pc'

 

I answer in the affirmative

 

I double click on the iphone icon....it opens and tells me 'the media contains digital photos.....and on the other side of that windows says...'open pix photo importing tool'....and has a folder names 'store_00010002' further down the window....(see attached screenshot)

 

Clicking on open pix importer etc returnsan empty box...nothing to import ...

 

Help.

 

I need a quicker, easier way to acess my pics without emailing them to myself then saving them from the email etc etc etc

See if the following helps:

http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/linux-iphone-6.html

That page implies the author could not get Mint Linux 17 to work with an iPhone 6. Admittedly, the article is more than a year old, so things could always change.

At the end of the day, iOS is not officially supported to work with Linux, so you likely will always have issues. This is not to say that you might not find ways to make it work, but it will be work getting it to work...pun intended.

The other option is to use a cloud service like Dropbox to get your photos off the iPhone. Dropbox does appear to have Linux clients. And the Dropbox app on an iPhone can be set to automatically backup all the photos in the Camera Roll on your iPhone. Then if the Linux Dropbox client works for you, the photos should automatically sync from the iPhone to your Dropbox account and then from the Dropbox servers to your computer running Linux. Even if the client does not work, you should still be able to log into your Dropbox account by way of a webpage and download the photos that way. Other cloud services such as Box, Google Drive, etc will likely work as well, but I only have direct experience with Dropbox's photo backup functions.

Put dropbox on my phone and also on Linux.

 

It appears if I have taken a pic on my phone and wish to upload it to BC,..on the PHONE.... I hit the + button...select that pic...hit on upload.

 

It then appears on my PC on the dropbox site...i need to double click on the pic to open it....then right click and 'save as'....it ends up on my desktop......and is then easy to attach it where ever via tinypic...

 

Hopefully someone else having dramas with an iphone will see this and at least know that it works.

In the iOS Dropbox app, go to Setting (gear icon in upper left corner). In the Dropbox Settings, turn on Camera Upload. This will result in all photos added to the Camera Roll automatically being uploaded to Dropbox.
