How to get iPod to work in Daryna

Postby Acid_1 » Fri May 02, 2008 1:46 am

Probably one of the biggest pains in the butt is when you try to get your new iPod to work in Mint. I spent *hours* (no joke) trying to figure it out. Turns out, the answer is rather simple. You need two files.

libgpod-dev.tar.gz
libgpod-dev

libgpod2.tar.gz

Install them in that order, then type

Code: Select all

df
in a terminal after you've plugged in your iPod, and your pc recognizes it. The iPod should be show as

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1 47927940 27244416 19709668 59% /media/IPOD

or something along those lines. If that's what is is, then run

Code: Select all

sudo bash

/usr/bin/ipod-read-sysinfo-extended /dev/sdb1 /media/IPOD


I recommend copy'n'pasting that line. It has a couple of spaces in it. (Replace /media/IPOD and /dev/sdb1 with your corresponding locations) Then disconnect by right clicking on the ipod and ejecting it. Reconnect, open amarok, and choose your model from the new list that appears. This works with any iPod that has been connected to iTunes at least once. I don't know about brand new ones, or the iPhone/touch, but it works for me, and I have the fall '07 80Gb Classic. Let me know if it works for you :P

Rythmbox is awesome too, but I find songbird way too much like iTunes for me to use it. Plus, it doesn't flow with everything very well. Feels kinda sluggish.
