iPhone Unhandled Lockdown Error -15 in Ubuntu 11.10

Getting an unhandled lockdown error -15 with your iPhone in Ubuntu? Here's how to solve it

Having just picked up the iPhone 4s the other day, tonight I plugged it in to my laptop (Ubuntu 11.10) to get some photos off it. Up came the alert that it couldn't mount because of an Unhandled Lockdown Error -15.

The solution for me was the following:

1. Open Terminal

2. Type:

idevicepair unpair

3. Unplug your iPhone and plug it in again.

Hey presto, you're up and transferring until your heart is content!
