Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 815491
usbmuxd not seeing iphone
Last modified: 2012-06-29 12:52:09 EDT
Description of problem:
/usr/lib/udev/rules.d/85-usbmuxd.rules looks to be telling usbmuxd to run under the usbmuxd account, however that account seems to be missing some access to function properly. When I plug in my phone I see it is launched as usbmuxd -u -U usbmuxd, but the phone never sets up for tethering. Also if I run usbmuxd -x, which should only cause the process to end if no devices are plugged in, it stops. ideviceinfo, idevicepair, etc. also don't think there is an iphone plugged in.
Modifying the startup to run as root causes most things to work properly, but I'm guessing this isn't ideal from a security standpoint either.
rhythmbox, gtkpod, etc. still don't see the phone, but I don't think that is usbmuxd's fault if pairing, tethering, and so on are at least functioning.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seems 100%. Tested on two systems.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 17
2. Plug in iPhone
Nothing works as it should
Tethering, pairing, etc. work properly.
Should be fixed in 1.0.8-2.fc17
Updating to 1.0.8-2.fc17 (currently still in updates-testing) fixed this problem for me.
So did editing /lib/udev/rules.d/85-usbmuxd.rules and changing OWNER="usbmux" to OWNER="usbmuxd".

Hi, yestarday I installed fedora 17. Today in the morning I realized that I can mount my iphone on the OS, I also can acces to photos, but neither rhytmbox nor banshee are capable to acces my music....I checked that usbmuxd-1.0.8-2.fc17.x86_64 is installed, and now I don't know what to do...Any help?...
