I cant recall my exact configuration, but I was able to mount the media filesystem by clicking the device entry in Thunar. Thunars address bar contained the device's UUID and :0 at the end, changing the :0 to :1 or :2 revealed the media filesystem. I think I had to compile a recent libimobiledevice myself.

But now I'm using "PhotoSync" to transfer my photos over WiFi, since even wireless transfer is 3x faster (60 MB/s avg. compared to 20 MB/s) than Apples silly USB 2.0 connection.
