Problem copying photos from Iphone to Ubuntu

+1 vote

I'm currently running Ubuntu 13.10, after upgrading from 13.04. A problem that I'm not having is copying photos from my Iphone to the 13.10 machine. I was not having this problem with 13.04. Using the 13.10
machine, when I plug my iphone in, it's recognized, and I can access the folder where photos are stored with no problems, and I can view photos with no trouble. The problem is, when I try to copy photos, using drag and drop, I get a message that says " Not supported at the backend", and the photo won't copy to the 13.10 machine. I have 2 other machines. One still running 13.04, the other running 12.04. I have no problems with either of those two machines. Does anyone have any ideas?

It's a regression in glib. According to the latter bug report there is a fixed package in the proposed repository that will be undergoing testing. If no problems are found it'll then be released as an update. In the meantime, you can either copy the files using a command-line utility like cp or gphoto2, or use a gui utility like Shotwell or Gthumb to import photos. Of course, you could also install the fixed glib package from - proposed, but only if you are comfortable with testing and know how to recover a potentially broken system (glib is the core gnome library).

With the release of iOS 6 and iphone-5 I'm trying to figure out how my app can know if the phone is in LTE mode vs GSM mode.

I haven't seen any updates to the Reachability API which can give whether it is connected to Wifi vs WWAN but I need to know what kind of WWAN connection it is.

Any ideas?
