    No iTunes on Ubuntu and sadly no drag 'n' drop music onto iPhones.

    I think Banshee can put music onto iPhones. Not too sure, sorry. If you want a phone that is truly easy to load music onto with a drag and drop, check out any Android phone.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    There is workaround, and it is THE only solution working after have spent 5 days searching.

    You can put music on Iphone with TuneShell app over the wifi! Awesome app, it lets you access the device over browser and add files.

    Please support the developers! Don't get me wrong, I have no interest if you do support them, I only think that they deserve it.

    Probably not the best/easiest approach, but just use iTunes on windows vm?

    If you use Clementine as your music player, you can select the tunes and then right click and choose copy to device including iPhone, and should also appear on your devices tab

    I use iTunes on a Windows XP virtual machine. Works fine.

    The reason it's so difficult is down to Apple not making their players simply drag & drop.

    I don't think you can drag and drop onto an iPod/iPhone even in Windows, you have to use iTunes.

    As has already been pointed out: it is so hard because Apple make it hard. They want to force you to use iTunes, which leads to you buying all your music via iTunes, so Apple continues to make money off you.

    it isnt that hard, I know Apple can be a PITA, but there are many ways which are not "hard".

    As i pointed out Clementine post #7, I know not everyone wants to use it, but then not everyone wants to use iTunes either
