Hi i have just installed ubuntu and i was wondering whether there is a itunes for linux that can be used to interface with the iPod touch??
anything regarding this would be very helpfull thanks
also any other hep would be great thnx
Perhaps the program rhythmbox (aka music player) would work. There is a package called ipod too, I think, that is specifically for mounting ipods (there's such a package in Debian, so I'm assuming it exists in Ubuntu).
However, I'm not really sure as to whether either rhythmbox or ipod (the debian software package), would help, since I don't have an ipod.
One further thought....
You may be better off with gtkpod as Amarok will require KDE dependencies.
I'm sure it will install just fine via Synaptic or apt-get,but i thought it worth mentioning as you will be using Gnome.
Here's a listing of various packages available for Ubuntu Hardy for ipods. From the site, it seems that rhythmbox, along with exaile, banshee, and amarok, for music players that apparently work with ipods, are available. Amarok is better suited to kubuntu, though, so one of the others might be a better choice. Also, gtkpod is available for general management of playlists and stuff (I think the aforementioned music player programs can do this as well). There's other programs too, such as programs for managing photos, like tripod to gpixpod. Anyway, have a look, and try out some of them.
Note: you must have the universe repository enabled to install most of the aforementioned programs. I'm sure in either synaptic, or application installer, you can do this.
