you will need to do the next steps.

> sudo aptitude install gtkpod ifuse

> mkdir /media/ipod
sudo chmod 777 /media/ipod
sudo adduser YOURUSERNAME ifuse

Now let's make the iPod / iPhone to be mounted automatically at boot ifuse gtkpod:

> sudo gedit /usr/bin/ipod

Write to the file:

ifuse /media/ipod

We save it and close and give you the appropriate permissions:

> sudo chmod 777 /usr/bin/ipod

Now let's modify the launcher menu to boot directly instead of gtkpod start the script we created earlier:

System -> Preferences -> Main Menu -> Applications -> Sound & Video -> gtkpod Manager -> Properties
Change the command gtkpod for ipod and close everything.

It's done, now you can connect your iPod / iPhone and open gtkpod from Applications -> Sound & Video -> gtkpod iPod Manager
