Get iPhone USB tethering working on Ubuntu 12.04 or Linux Mint 13

By Umair Wednesday, June 13, 2012




In Ubuntu 12.04 the USB tethering of iPhone by default is now working as usual. We can set up iPhone as ethernet driver by enabling usb tethering im mywi, and previous Ubuntu 11.10 will automatically connect to the Internet via iPhone but 12.04 won’t work.

To get iPhone USB tethering working again on Ubuntu 12.04, we need following packages installed:
  • ipheth-utils
  • libimobiledevice-dev
  • libimobiledevice-utils

Installation of Utils, open Terminal and enter following command:
sudo apt-get install ipheth-utils libimobiledevice-dev libimobiledevice-utils
Enjoy
