Thanks for the quick reply but I tryed what you said and I still have the same problem
The above guide is great, thanks. If you're still having problems I suggest taking a look at an excellent post on the mysticriver site: http://www.misticriver.net/showthread.php?t=50579
I have a kubuntu 64bit edition installed on my system and the above did not work for me. it did however give me an outline on what to do.
for others wanting support for mtp devices on an amd64 system these are the steps I went through to get it.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
tar -zxvf libmtp-0.1.5.tar.gz
sudo cp libmtp.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
sudo dpkg -i amarok_1.4.5-0ubuntu7_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i amarok-xine_1.4.5-0ubuntu7_amd64.deb
will amarok work with M$ ZUNE? Or is it just better to dual boot windows for this device?
I'm trying to install libmtp, but when I try to install the deb I created through checkinstall it errors with:
dpkg: error processing libmtp_0.1.5-1_i386.deb (--install):
trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/gcc', which is also in package gcc
OK, following the instructions/comments/other links, I am able to get amarok to recognize a Creative Zen and list all the songs within. However, when I attempt to play a song by double-clicking on it, I get an error message "Error Loading Media Could not open file"
This error does not occur if I am using an iPod, i.e. the song plays. I also notice that the song file on the Zen seems to be recognized as a "stream", as opposed to an mp3 file, which is is.
I have not tried reading or writing to the device as I don't want to mess my daughter's music collection up.
the wget are 404

Then i delete all the files that conflict with other packages (I don't know why these are included. If anyone knows how to prevent this, please let us know.) and repackage it with the following:Code:dpkg -x <deb file> <folder to extract to> dpkg -e <deb file> <folder to extract to/DEBIAN/>
Code:sudo chown -R 0:0 <folder to extract to> sudo chmod -R 775 <folder to extract to> dpkg -b <folder to extract to> <new deb file>
