Description of problem:
Iphone 3GS is not mounted on Fedora 17 when connected via a standard USB cable.
This is the same problem reported by BUG #815491 which is in status "CLOSED" but to me, should not be.When the Iphone is connected to the USB port it seems detected but then nothing else happens. I Cannot acces have to my pictures on my Iphone because the File manager does not see the Iphone File system.
I'm using Xfce instead of Gnome3.
Any Idea to help ?

Iphone Icon on the desktop and Iphone Filesystem shown in the filemanager.
Same thing done on the same computer under UBUNTU 12.04 works perfectly !
Iphone is detected ans Iphone FS mounted.
Have you got ifuse installed. It works fine for a number of other iDevices and the 3GS isn't exactly new

Thank you for your help. Yes ifuse-1.1.2-1.fc17.x86_64 is installed. I also installed Gigolo which shows the iphone icon when it is plugged in, but then Gigolo gives a strange URI : afc://*** lot of digits ** for the Iphone.
What does this mean ? It looks like there is no mount applet available with XFce desktop as there is one in Ubuntu / gnome .
Nothing shows up on my desktop and I'm not able to browse my Iphone directories.
In both cases ( Fedora and Ubuntu ) NetworkManager shows that there is an Apple Iphone on the Wired Network.
After spending hours and hours searching the Internet I still don't have any fix.
got gvfs-afc installed? You shouldn't need any mount applet as it should just automount

Yes, gvfs-afc-1.12.3-1.fc17.x86_64 is installed. There is something strange on my laptop , there is no eth0 network interface , I have a p35p1 interface instead ( ?? ).
Here is the result on ip addr :
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN

In fact I do not use my Ethernet connector at all since may laptop is connected via a wireless link . Does that matters ??
Another info I've found on the Internet is about thunar, here is the thing
"Open resources in Thunar on Xfce 4.4 and 4.6
By default, Gigolo uses gvfs-open to open the connected remote resources. On some systems this will either result in an error or open the wrong file manager because gvfs-open uses the mime types to determine which application it should launch and those mime types are often not configured properly.
First, you need to install the gvfs-fuse backend for GVFS and fuse-utils so that gvfs mounts the remote resources in ~/.gvfs. Make sure that your user is in the fuse group or this will not work. "
I tried to install gvfs-fuse and fuse-utils with yum , but it didn't find any of those !! and more : there is no fuse group in Fedora 17 !
Anyway thank you for your fast replies , and merry christmas to you.
The p35p1 is consistent network interface naming, it is as expected and fine. It won't have any effect what so ever.
I have no idea above Xfce and I've only uses it a little. I suspect the issue is with how it deals with the load. It all seems fine to me from the libimobiledevice / usbmuxd PoV

Hope you had a merry christmas.
just to say that my problem is still open and, like you,I do not see what's wrong in this Xfce desktop and its applications! I took my time and moved back to a Standard Fedora 17 with Gnome3 and desktop session gnome-fallback. Everything works fine,my Iphone is mounted and I can view or download my pictures from it.
This is just fine to me.
Anyway , thank you for your help!
Not a bug with the libimobiledevice components
