I've downloaded Floola, it seems to work - but where should i copy this (maybe bin) file?

should i put it in .local/share/applications/ ??

will that allow me to access it as i need if i use the terminal or a shortcut icon? - by simply using the command "floola"?

Put it in /usr/bin and then you will be able to call by just giving Floola.

If you only want it to be available only to you a directory in $HOME is fine. $HOME/bin. $HOME/floola. Something like that.

To be available to everyone /usr/local/bin is the place, not /usr/bin. That's for system files.

floola should be installed on your iPod ,from what I could see in their documentation...
it also needs some libs installed in linux to use it...

Many thanks, i'm yet to test it but i'm sure it'll be fine.

I've used Floola in XP before and really like it, i think it's got some really good tagging options too.

I'll repost if any problems come up

Cheers

From their website:



Make sure your iPod is mounted with read AND write access.

To enable playback you'll need either gstreamer or lib xine to be installed. If both are installed gstreamer will be used.
Floola relies on libstdc++5. To install it (under Ubuntu) type sudo apt-get install libstdc++5 via terminal.
To start Floola, just double click on application icon or from console type ./Floola
