Hello Linux Geeksters. In this article I will show you all how to do all the necessary tweaks, in order to be able to recharge your Apple devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV) via USB, on your Arch Linux or Manjaro.
As you may know, the Kernel does include support for mobile devices as default, so we have to install some extra packages.
For Arch Linux, Manjaro and their derivative systems, we need to install the libimobiledevice package, which it is available via the default repositories. All you have to do is:
$ sudo pacman-Sy libimobiledevice
Now restart your system:
$ sudo reboot
If everything went OK, your system will recognize your Apple device as Mass Storage.
Also, if you want to sync your device with the system, you need to install the libgpod package, from the repositories:
$ sudo pacman-Sy libgpod
