Something to manage songs for ipod on Linux

Does anyone know any good free software that lets me sync my ipod nano to linux mint? I'm hopeing something pretty close to what itunes is.

you're not going to find anything like itunes, and that doesn't work in Linux. Apple Linux support is poor and changeable. You may want to read this:

Though not all apps listed are necessarily going to work, from what I've read I'd try amarok first.

And deliberately so. Apple wants you to buy more of their expensive stuff, not use it with anybody else's stuff.
