View Full Version : [ubuntu] 6th gen iPod classic and Karmic

January 13th, 2010, 06:45 AM
So. For christmas I got a brand-new silver 160gb iPod classic. I plug it into my Hardy install and as soon as rhythmbox tries to put music on it, the program quits. So, figuring it's because it's not the most up-to-date install, I move to Karmic. So far, I'm having some mouse problems, but I'll deal with that later. Right now, I want to get my iPod working.

Plugging it in, Rhythmbox recognized it, told me to initialize it, which I did. I moved music onto it, unplugged it correctly, and see that no music is on it. I've looked up how to get it working, and everything deals with Jaunty. I try to follow the terminal commands, and it there's always at least one package that won't download.

I'm a pretty big n00b on ubuntu, I mostly use it for internet browsing. I know how to run basic commands on terminal, but can't get gtkpod to compile. I've seen that other people can get it to work, and it's a little bit upsetting that I can't use listen to music.

How in the world do I get this to work? Does amarok support the newest iPods? Any help is appreciated. thanks in advance!

guys, I've always been helped out on this forum. Somebody's gotta know something. Even if you just point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.
