    HOWTO: Get iOS 4 to sync with rhythmbox in ubuntu 10.04

    Well with the release of iOS 4, many Ubuntu users are complaining of incompatibility with between rhythmbox and the new update. Here is a simple way to fix that:

    1. Open up synaptic

    2. Go to the Repositories (Under Settings)

    3. Add this source:
    Code:
    ppa:pmcenery/ppa
    (from https://launchpad.net/~pmcenery/+archive/ppa)

    4. Click Close and then click the Reload button at the top left

    5. After it is done reloading search for:
    libimobiledevice1

    6. It will give you two results, install both.

    7. Now after installing, close synaptic and open up the terminal and type in
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    8. After the upgrade Ubuntu 10.04 will have iOS 4 support!!

    Thanks for the info! The only thing I had problems with was how to make my iPod Touch show up in Rhythmbox, or at least show up as a separate drive. Any ideas?

    Hi.

    I tried this on my machine for my ipod touch but it didn't work. rhythmbox keep asking me to initialize my ipod.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    In order for this to work, you might need to first transfer one track to your iP(od|hone) with iTune. It sucks, but it has worked on the devices I've tried.

    I'll try. I allready have several podcast episodes I have downloaded directly from my devices so I allow to mysel to be skeptical.

    Thanks, I'll post again this evening.
