    No, unfortunately no Mac software works on Ubuntu as far as I know. Wine will only work with Windows software, so you're out of luck.

    However, you may be able to use a virtual machine (VirtualBox, for instance, but don't use the OSE version in the repos since it does not support USB. For that, you will have to install the PUEL version from But that would require a second licensed copy of your OS.

    It is possible that there is an open source player (much like amipod or gtkpod for iPods), but that might take some searching.
