Yup. The "normal" mount contains nothing that normal users should access.
Accessing the photos will leave ghosts on the device, and there have been no
ways to update the music database in Linux for a few iOS releases.
You can still access the device by editing the URL in the "Documents on..."
location. Just remove the ":3" at the end.
If you have use cases that aren't the 2 mentioned above, or using your iDevice
as a thumb drive, please file bugs against gvfs in the upstream GNOME Bugzilla.
Thanks Bastien. My use case is that I want to be able to copy pictures
off of my phone and onto the computer. I simply copy them off of the
phone, then eject phone from computer and then I delete them on the
phone using the phones interface.. This is my method of recovering
space on the phone.
I used to be able to just double click the icon in Nautilus and
drag/drop the pictures where I wanted them to go. Now I have to use
the CLI to get the same functionality.
