Unsure - however when you connect the iPad to the device with Ubuntu or any other OS installed you get a pop up message asking if you want to backup to that device.

I don't use Apple devices so can't offer an answer that I've confirmed myself, however can you communicate between the two devices using wifi or bluetooth - which might enable you to backup from one to the other.
if you are using Gnone, does GVFS recognise it?
Would the program

be of any use to you (the page says that it's in the Ubuntu repositories).

Hi Bromerzz and Kwacker, Thanks for your replies.
When I connect by usb cable the wi-fi is recognised by both ipad and ubuntu, but I am unable to see any directories etc, and can do nothing with it. I have not tried bluetooth.
No, I haven't used libimobile device. I will look into this tomorrow as I will be going to bed shortly. Thanks again for replies. Regards, Jim.
