Feisty's Amarok appears to be experiencing some severely odd bugs at the moment.
You can search on these forums for the how-to on installing gnomad2 - which should work.
Great how-to! I can use my Zune with Amarok now.
Installing with Edgy, and so far have had to take these extra steps:
* Had to `sudo apt-get install build-essential` because of configure complaining that gcc couldn't compile executables.
* Had to `sudo apt-get install libusb-dev` because of configure for libmtp complaining about missing the usb libraries
* `sudo checkinstall` does nothing ... I ran `sudo make install` instead.
Also, http://archive.ubuntu.com/pool returns a 404.
I think I've finished the tutorial, but Amarok still isn't detecting my iRiver Clix. I'm going to just restart my computer...
I'm not sure if this problem is zune related or not but i can connect my zune and browse its contents via amarok with mtp support but when I try to transfer files to it amarok freezes.
I'm using edgy and I followed your how-to to the T.

It could be that the Zune introduced new protocols that aren't implemented in libmtp yet.
Try installing gnomad2 via the howto on this forum (you shouldn't need to compile libmtp again; just gnomad2) and see if that works betterforyou.
when i try to configure libmtp i get the following error. any suggestions?
configure: error: I can't find the libusb libraries on your system. You
may need to set the LDFLAGS environment variable to include the
search path where you have libusb installed before running
configure (e.g. setenv LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib)
thanks, that got me to the command
sudo apt-get build-dep amarok
to which i received
E: Build-dependencies for amarok could not be satisfied.
