Trying to Install iPod Gen3 Hybrided my system.

Postby cutiger95 on Tue Feb 26, 2008 12:18 am

Somehow I have managed to hybrid my system when trying to install all the codecs needed to get my Nano 3rd generation running.

I ran an update with the Mint Updater now things are really screwy. My desktop icons are gone and my mint start is also gone.

On my start bar I have the Ubuntu button that allows me to select programs. I really don't know what I did as I was pretty in depth when I did it. Any help in getting me back without a complete new install would be greatly appreciatted. Just ask and I will answer any questions that you have.

Did you do a dist-upgrade or just mintUpdate? And does mintMenu exist at all? Right click on panel, click add to panel and look for Linux Mint Menu.

The system has the menu that I can add from the panel but nothing works at all from that menu.

Not really sure what I did as I was following the instructions on a site I found for enabling the 3rd generation iPod.

Could you give us a link?
If you were using Daryna I doubt you did a dist-upgrade, but you might have installed some packages that depends on Ubuntu desktop, or something.. I can dig up a link to get a 8GB Nano working (sorry, I am completely confused with Apples iPod generations) which I believe is 3rd gen.. And that only require the installation of 2 packages (libgpod, I think, is the library that makes iPod "work").

Butting in a sec to mention that I'd love the link to get the 8GB ipod working, if it is something a newbie can follow. It would be nice not to have to keep using Windows for that.

Just install those two packages in the reverse order that is suggested in that guide (first libgpod2_0.5.3+actually0.6.0-0.1_i386.deb then libgpod-dev_0.5.3+actually0.6.0-0.1_i386.deb)
