I guess it is probably easier to use cloud to achieve this however I guess I would ask. Connecting an iPhone 7+ to Linux Mint 10.1 64 ( Cinnamom) in order to transfer photos to Shotwell via USB . Has anyone managed to do this ? I have tried more acrobatic moves than an Olympic gymnast to achieve this.

I thought the iPhone identified itself as a camera and thus allowed any OS to transfer images from it assuming the screen was unlocked?

Apple seem to go out of their way to make simple things difficult.  I recently jumped through all sorts of hoops just to get some movie files onto an iPad for editing - I ended up using the abonimation known as iTunes.

 

I assume MM above is having a laugh about iDevices being visible to the OS.

 

The easy way to do this is with DropBox - seems crazy to have to go via the cloud but that's Apple

Nah, Mint is not allowing Phone to import after initially prompting to advise what I want to do. I select import photos selecting Shotwell. Its shown in the list of devices. I have trusted the computer on the iPhone. I select the iPhone in Shotwell and I get the message "starting import, please wait...." and there it sits for eternity.

I am not near the machine in question but I thought iFuse is included in Mint 18.1

Hmm sorry guys I'll stick with Android going forward however I'll also test this with my sisters iPhone tonight. I remember it was something quite simple however it has been years since I last used an iPhone.

On my Android phone I run Resilio Sync, which talks to the corresponding piece of software on the desktop. It syncs very quickly with my phone. I also use it to back up documents and photos from various family members to my PC, because I have a good backup system and they don't.

 

It's available on most mobile and desktop operating systems, including iPhone and Unix.

You could allow the the iphone to upload the movie to icloud photo library, then go to icloud.com in your browser and download...once again using the cloud.

I finally surrendered on this. Having tried everything it was easier for me to give the person I was doing this for a phone. Had a Galaxy S6 Edge here so gave that to them.
