Ubuntu Mount HFS +

HFS Volumes can be mounted on a linux system, here's the instructions for ubuntu (12.04 LTS):
First, make sure that you have hfsprogs installed. Example installation command:
sudo apt-get install hfsprogs 
Next, mount or remount the HFS+ drive; commands need to be as follows:
sudo mount -t hfsplus -o force,rw /dev/sdx# /media/mntpoint 
sudo mount -t hfsplus -o remount,force,rw /mount/point 
Finally, if the drive was improperly unmounted or has otherwise become partially corrupted run fsck.hfsplus (provided here by Jayson) as such:
sudo fsck.hfsplus /dev/sdx#
