Hi Guys, this is my situation:

I'm using

1.- ipod nano 3rd gen
2.- Ubuntu 8.10
3.- Amarok
4.- last.fm


1. database collection working (external HDD)
2. every album has its artwork.
3. able to connect my ipod and transfer music.
4. last.fm working good

1. doesn't display artwork in ipod after transfer.
2. when i connect the ipod and play song from it, the CONTEXT menu in amarok menu doesn't show info about the song being played.

a similar problem was posted here:

ok guys, problem solved


thispage has info about what to do


I followed the steps, though that the packages were already installed, but one:

GdkPixbuf has to be available (including development package)

I do not remember the exactly name of the package but I did this:

1.- copy the "GdkPixbuf" text onto the clipboard
2.- open synaptic ... select search ...and paste the text
3.- you will see some packages called GdkPixbuf or something like that... and one of those has the text "-devel" at the end. install it
4.- done, now after tranfering the music from amarok to my ipod i choose "Transfer artwork" or (something like that) and done

hope this info may be helpful
