Brand new to Ubuntu or any other Linux distro. It's a great OS so far, but gets me frustrated sometimes, especially when I encounter errors trying to compile and install tar.gz apps (but thats for another post). It's especially frustrating trying to get the same functionality that I previously had on my Windows 7.

I know there are several applications out there that work with ipods, but are there any that not only transfer music to the ipod, but also provides the voice over feature that iTunes provides? (The ipod shuffle doesn't have an interface, you press a button and it tells you what song or playlist you're on.)

iTunes sucks so even if i can't find something, i'll just deal with it.
