When openning iTune 7.2 in Wine 1.0.1, an error message say "QuickTime Unavailable, QuickTime is required to run iTunes. Please reinstall iTunes."

However, when I check c:\Program File\, I found that both Quicktime and Itunes are installed in there. So why is it telling me quicktime is not install!

This is what it keeps appearing when I run the command in terminal to open itunes.


err:module:import_dll Library QTCF.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\QuickTime\\QTSystem\\QuickTime.qts") not found

I hear iTunes just doesn't work quite well with Wine. I recommend using an alternate application such as Banshee or Songbird. If you want to manage your iPod both banshee and Songbird can do it. You can follow the links on my signature to get you started. Good luck :popcorn:

If you like the look and feel of iTunes, why not use Rhythmbox Music Player?

Worth a try.

Install it using Synaptic. Just search for rhythmbox

Or type this in a terminal:


sudo apt-get install rhythmbox

I just restart my computer in Window and installed iTune and able to use the iTune U for Stanford. Something just not meant for Ubuntu.

Do podcasts even download on such an outdated version of iTunes? For all the regular music purchases and so on Apple requires the use of iTunes 9.

Besides, from the page linked:
For those who use another operating system such as Linux or wish to avoid iTunes altogether, we plan to offer podcast (RSS) access in the near future.

You do not need a Macintosh, iTunes, or an iPod to play the audio files. All you will need is a player capable of playing .mp4 AAC (Advanced Audio Codec) files. (AAC is not exclusively Apple's, although Apple prefers it to alternative file formats.)

Yes, I read that too. But the key sentence is "we plan to offer podcast (RSS) access in the near future" which mean they don't have it yet and can't tell you a date that they will have it.

Regarding the old version of itunes, I actually tried a newer version 9.0.2 and it tells me the installation is completed but it never even bother to create the itunes folder in c:\program file in wine. So that's why I went with 7.2 and it actually installed but won't run.

I could care less about downloading music from iTunes but I need to download business apps to use with my iPhone. I have 7.2 iTunes using WINE but I cannot connect, register, etc. What is necessary is that I can load apts to my iPhone. I've had no success. Any suggestions or am I up the creek on this one?
