Has anyone had any luck getting itunes to work on linux mint? itunes ver 9... I tried on wine but get a nasty error 7. I asked over there on wine hq tooo but not much input besides upgrade to latest version of wine which didnt work. I installed the lenny version Chris
HAH! I like it! No, its not a requirement I am rather liking Mint to the Max! I will install itunes on my archaic desktop my kids use, that will suffce, just wondered if anyone got it working is all Chris
Other than to purchase songs I don't know why you'd need iTunes. I put music on and off my Nano (3rd gen) all the time, using Rythumbox. I do remember reading somewhere that you can't use both iTunes & any of the linux solutions. Something about messing with the database, I buymy mp3s at Amazon and there are other places. Do the same with my wife's Shuffle.
When I wanted another mp3 player because I decided to leave the Nano hooked up to the radio in my truck I bought a Sansa Fuze,lost it and bought 2 Sansa Clips. They all work fine with Linux, you can drag and drop you music to the music folder. They mount as a USB thumb drive. They will also play .ogg files after a firmware upgrade.
thanks guys tried songbird and it doenst recognize the music. I can only mount the ipod to get to the pics. i will just use my itouch with my old windows pc its a pity though since I got a $50 gift card for itunes! ah well Chris
virtual box runs itunes like a charm. Can buy update/upgrade whatever. Just make sure when doing upgrades, when the device restarts (iphone for example) you set the usb device back to virtual box so it can continue.
