Hey everybody, i am fairly new to this whole linux thing and am in need of some assistance. I have the new Ubuntu intrepid ibex. I have a Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra and i want to upload my music from it to amarok. The problem is that my computer won't recognize it, it does not even acknowledge that there is a device connected. So after some googling i downloaded "libnjb-2.2.6" the description said it would allow amarok to recognize the nomad jukebox player. so i have this thing on my desktop... now what?

What is the file extension at the end of it eg .deb .tar.gz etc...

You should be able to install it by searching synaptic (System>Admin>Synaptic Package Mananger) or open a terminal (Applications>Accessoires>Terminal)
and install with

sudo apt-get install libnjb5

You would need to compile it from source. The easier way is to try installing the one in the ubuntu repos. See my Edit in above post.
