Can you use Ubuntu 12 to communicate with an iPad using iOS6?
I have solved my problem by putting dropbox on both my laptop and ipad and now I can transfer data between both with no problems..
you can manage music on ios devices with rhythmbox in ubuntu 12.04
Use WINE to install iTunes for Windows on Ubuntu and then communicate with your iPAD with iOS6 as you would normally do from a Windows Desktop.
Alternatively, install VirtualBox on Ubuntu and install iTunes on it.
Kindly elaborate your question as communicate can have many meanings like communicating via remote control software,chatting or email etc..
