Silly Issue with itunes2amarok


One of the last things I need to do is get my ipod synced up again. Since I am no longer toting Windows on this machine, I need to figure out a workaround. Amarok seems the most viable candidate. So...

When reading the instructions on how to use the application itunes2amarok, I come across a line that says "...in the menu, select plugins..." I am aware that this is a newbie question but...where is that option? I see an output plugin option under "Configure Amarok" but that is all.

I know I will probably feel silly once I have the answer but it has plagued me for a few days now. Thanks for any input.

I think the part you need is here:
Amarok -> Settings -> Configure Amarok -> Media devices

Amarok wirelessly syncs with my jailbroken iTouch perfectly.
I cannot get the "Album cover art" to work, but I don't care.

Yes, I see that but that section is only for plugins for media devices. itunes2amarok is an app designed to import your library's playlists.

Thank you for the quick response. That is still worth knowing. It just isn't quite what I am looking for. There has to be something that I am missing.

itunes2amarok currently imports ratings and play counts. It does not import your music into Amarok, it only applies ratings you have set in iTunes to your music library in Amarok.
It doesn't seem to import playlists if I am reading this correctly. Just the ratings and the number of times each track has been played.

OK, I found a link, here: http://code.google.com/p/itunes2amarok/
So it looks like this is a script.
Probably you need to click Amarok -> Tools -> Script Manager -> Install script to get itunes2amarok to install as a "plugin".
