you do it by sypnatic. you go to administration then sypnatic. then you type on the search banshee and the latest one will show
mark it for installation and click apply

Try to follow the procedure from here. Choose 'The Hardy Heron' in the 'apt sources.list entries' section.

In a terminal type

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list


In the file that opens add these lines to the bottom of the repositories list if you are using Mint 5 (Elyssa), then close an save.

Code: Select all

## +++ Banshee +++
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-team/ubuntu hardy main


If you are using Mint 6 RC1 (Felicia), add these lines instead

Code: Select all

## +++ Banshee +++
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-team/ubuntu intrepid main


Now go to the Package Manager (Synaptic) and click on reload. When it finishes reloading the repos you should have access to the latest version of Banshee.

hth :)

Don't use Banshee. Try Songbird or Rythmbox and use the iPod support add-on or Hipo to transfer music
