installing ubuntu 10.04 package


Hello all,
I am relatively new to using Ubuntu (thankfully upgraded from Windows) and have run into an issue recently. I was using a 3g iPod nano which was supported by my flavor of Ubuntu . However, recently I have acquired a 4g iPod Touch and to my dismay, it is not supported on my OS. After doing some research, I discovered that Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx supports all the newer generation Apple products, including my 4g iPod Touch. Is there anyway I can install this package without reformatting my computer COMPLETELY over again? Are there any easier ways to be able to sync my ipod with my computer?? Any feed back would be GREATLY appreciated. Many thanks.

Hey, I have a 4G iPod Touch too, and tried several configurations to make it work, none of them really worked so if you find anything, please let me know.
If I get to make it sync I'll let you know and I'll make sure to post it here.

Thanks a lot. I'm considering installing Ubuntu 10.04 since it's supposed to be compatible with all the newer generation apple products. I will try that and also post on here if I'm successful.

Ubuntu versions prior to 10.04 will all reach end of life at the end of this month: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases
You should upgrade (or better yet, do a clean install of) Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10.
Or wait until later this month when Ubuntu 11.04 will be released.

I have 10.04 however it is not compatible and 10.10 isn't compatible with any software on the ipod higher than 4.01. I fear that my only option will be to test out itunes with Wine and see how that works.
