Re: shhh I got an ipod...

I think gtkpod is one of the better apps for using an ipod in linux.  Amarok isn't too bad either.  Or if you're really bold, you can try to get itunes working with either wine or crossover office.

Re: shhh I got an ipod...

It's been a while since I used amarok, but I could never figure out how to add a playlist and podcasts just got dumped in with all the other music.

Re: shhh I got an ipod...

hmmm interesting... how well does it work?  I've always tried to get linux on my ipod, but it would never play music well enough and it wasnt as smooth as the ipod firmware

Re: shhh I got an ipod...

For KDE users, I just installed ipodslave from the AUR, which is nice for treating the iPod as "just another storage device". It has a pretty nice interface, and obviously a lot more lightweight than Amarok. I'll check out gnupod, though, as I'm always looking for cli alternatives wink .

Re: shhh I got an ipod...

Unfortunately, NONE of these will let you hook up to iTunes. I was forced to keep Windows around forever just so that I could (a) use iTunes and (b) use Photoshop. I finally got fed up with that and bought a Mac too! It does both iTunes *and* Photoshop better than Windows, and since Mac OS X is based on FreeBSD or OpenBSD (or one of those BSD variants), there is lots of cross learning from Linux.

So, your best interface to an iPod is a Mac! Use it for the stuff you need it for, and use Linux for the rest!

BTW this honestly is not an attempt to start any kind of flame war, just my solution to this very real problem.

Yes, iTunes music store is one of few reasons I keep a windows partition. Every now and then I run into another app that I like that only runs on windows..... like 'orb' it's great.
