I now can sync my MTP formatted YP-U3 mp3 player using Amarok under Kubuntu 9.10, but I want a more general solution for simply moving podcasts, etc.

Qlix looks very attractive, and in the past I have found some claims in other forums that it works.

It crashes every time I try to use it under Kubuntu 9.10 on a desktop and netbook. My experience comes closest to that reported by Inspired on 27 Feb 2009 in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1082037&highlight=qlix

I never get to see the expected interface as described on the developer's webpage:

I found no recent Kubuntu/Ubuntu bug reports until this one. My crashes display no messages. They start with just "no devices found. Please connect a device" (generally, but not always when I had not yet plugged the YP-U3 in) or "Detecting Devices" when it recognizes my YP-U3 supposedly but soon crashes. Most of the time it fails to close and Kwin has to kill it.

I have libmtp, mtpfs, mtp-tools, and qlix-dbg installed as well as qlix, all from Ubuntu repositories.
