Run updatedb and then do a "locate tunesviewer" and see what all comes up.

Did, and now I know why. I'm told "tunesviewer can't work on this type of computer (i386)." I switched from Vista to Ubunbu.

Ahh, ok, that explains it. Want me to try to find something else for you?

If you can run ubuntu, seems to me tunesviewer should work also.

That's what I thought, but I don't know. To the OP - Have you tried installing from the command line using dpkg?

If you can't find the program and/or the associated files with locate, it isn't installed, or the name isn't correct.
Perhaps you should look for
Code:
TunesViewer
You did installed using
Code:
sudo dpkg -i tunesviewer_0.6.deb
right?

Kind regards

Thank you, repo, I did find it from the "updated" list, and successfully uninstalled it. It wasn't installed correctly from the beginning, and I was told several times (every time I tried installation) that this program can't work on my computer.

Oh ok, go get your beauty sleep and report back ASAP! Lol.... just messing with you. Most likely I will be at work when you see me online again. During the time being, I will see if I can find something better. Cheers,

Josh

Minimum System Requirements:

Tunesviewer works well even on older computers, but you must have pygtk >= 2.16 and lxml available. This shouldn't be a problem for recent versions of Ubuntu, Fedora etc, these requirements should install automatically.
Kind regards

I gave it a last shot today, but, so bad, this TunesViewer just couldn't work on my computer, the "re-install" option refused to disappear, and it didn't appear in the application list, besides, to locate it in the software centre (in order to remove it) took some special efforts. I gave it up, and it's for real.
