    This is what finally got it mounted:

    Code:
    @linux-ipxi:~> ifuse ~/ipod -u {40 digit UUID}


    That 40 digit number found by a command line
    Code:
    dmesg --follow
    @malcomlewis gave is what it needed.
    Still not completely happy with it, BUT ! can get it mounted.

    Now to learn to use gtkpod and whatever app to transfer to and from.

    THANKS AGAIN deano_ferarri and malcomlewis

    Well done Bill. So, it seems the UUID is needed explicitly here.

    Yes, I am assuming (we know what that means don't we?) it does.
    Unless I am missing something in all the articles I have read that nothing in them got it mounted for me.

    When I look back at all the forum posts, article reading, trying, adding apps and lib's, months of disappointment, frustration, and knob scratchin'
    Was all because of a 40 digit identifier that I probably ran across in my travels to this point and either didn't know I needed it or I forgot it!

    I don't know if that UUID(it is not a /dev/xxx/ AFAIK) can be added to fstab, and even if, what good it will do because the iPod is not always connected.(More reading)
    For now, I can live with mounting and unmounting it in a terminal.

    I can post the 40 digit number fmy iPod Touch 4th Gen if it will do someone some good, BUT, it is not good for newer iPod's.
    Besides it can be found in
    Code:
    dmesg --follow
    started before plugging the unit in.

    Better than the dmesg line command is this:
    Code:
    sudo lsusb -v | grep -i iSerial
    which outputs similar to this:
    Code:
    iSerial                 3 XxxxXxxx234
    can't get debug descriptor: Resource temporarily unavailable
      iSerial                 3 THE 40 DIGIT CODE

    Yes, that might be an option (with systemd.automount approach perhaps).

    I can post the 40 digit number fmy iPod Touch 4th Gen if it will do someone some good,
    You already did. .....but it's unique to your device so not relevant to anyone else.

    Again, THANKS! now to learn how to use GTKpod.
    Good luck with that Bill. Amarok may be another option here.

    Also, if you have 'imobiledevice-tools' installed, there are a number of useful utilities provided that might have helped with identifying and paring the device:

    idevice_id
    Code:
    idevice_id --list
    ideviceinfo

    idevicepair
    Code:
    ~> idevicepair --help
    
    idevicepair - Manage host pairings with devices and usbmuxd.
    
    Usage: idevicepair [OPTIONS] COMMAND
    
     Where COMMAND is one of:
      systembuid   print the system buid of the usbmuxd host
      hostid       print the host id for target device
      pair         pair device with this host
      validate     validate if device is paired with this host
      unpair       unpair device with this host
      list         list devices paired with this host
    
     The following OPTIONS are accepted:
      -d, --debug      enable communication debugging
      -u, --udid UDID  target specific device by its 40-digit device UDID
      -h, --help       prints usage information

    A nice blog aimed at iPhone 6 connectivity but likely still relevant for IPod devices....

    Aw,jeez! My wife asked me to transfer music to her iPod Classic. Absolutely nothing to do but plug it in, make sure it is mounted, open Amarok and copy her songs to the iPod? I hate Apple! Maybe more than Win 10!

    Anyway, thanks for the information. Every bit has helped. The blog you pointed me too is very interesting. I never thought about doing a ‘pair’.

    Did I say, I HATE APPLE?

    At least your Linux journey is an interesting and positive one Bill! Enjoy the freedom and learning!

    Apparantly according to the gtkpod website and manual I have to 'jailbreak' my iPod Touch to use GTKpod. It has something to do with libgpod.
    Still looking at Amarok to see if is the same, but I suspect that it too needs the jailbreak.
    Had to go back to windows and clean out something that got added to what iTunes labels cagatory 'Other', it grew from less than 500MB to over 3.2GB after trying to use gtkpod to add songs. I still don't know what is was.....
    Back to investigating.
