Re: gen2 ipod shuffle vs rhythmbox + gtkpod
Use the pmcenery ppa and remove libimobiledevice0.
Then get the default libgpod library for lucid, that's 0.7.93 and put it somewhere, backup the current library and replace it with a symbolic link to the older one.
This is the only way I got my 2nd gen ipod touch and ipod shuffle 2nd gen working beautifully with rhythmbox.
There's something with libgpod 0.8 (current stable) that breaks the sync and filesystem check on the older ipod shuffle. I didn't have the time and energy to try solving it... So I just replaced it.
Be aware that an older libgpod doesn't support the newer ipods that was added after 0.7.93.
 just restore the ipod in itunes once, no need to do anything else. Should work after that, atleast it did with me. And make sure rhythmbox has the ipod plugin enabled[/edit]
