One of the big hassles with the ipod touch is that it’s very much a closed system. But it doesn’t need to be. So for those who’d like to run it without needing to bother with iTunes, here’s how…
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pmcenery/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ipheth-utils
Go to System>Administration>Software Sources, click on Add and select
Click on Reload then Close.
Go to System>Administration>Synaptic package manager, search for libimobiledevice0 then install it.
At this point you are able to drag and drop MP3 files onto your iPod.
sudo apt-get install amarok
If this doesn’t work, then:
rm -r ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok rm -r ~/.kde/share/config/amarok*
Which should have you all set for an open iPod.Copyright © 2004-2014 by Foreign Perspectives. All rights reserved.
