    Installing iTunes requires Wine to be installed first -- and besides, iTunes v9.x doesn't work well. It would be essentially a waste of your time to try.

    As others have said, you need to consider alternative apps to iTunes.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    I don't recommend iTunes because the functionality is very poor compared to something compable in Ubuntu that runs natively.

    Here is a walk-through that contains instructions to get a version of iTunes running on your system in Wine. It is about 1/2 the way down the checklist.

    There are also alternatives listed you might want to try and gtkpod as well for ipod devices.

    I find Rythm Box and gtkpod to work well for music on the iPod. Banshee is way to buggy for anything in my opinion.

    Does anyone know of any way to transfer apps to my iPod while using Ubuntu?

    Fantastic--have not been able to reload our Ipods since changing to Ubuntu (couldn't get Wine and Itunes to work together. Having just read this thread I loaded gtkpod and bingo, new files have been added to the ipod

    I installed gtkpod, but what is "BINGO" and how does it relate to the iPhone, iPod ? Package manager didn't find it.

    Thanks
