    Talking MP3 player for Ubuntu Linux

    I have an iPod player but I find it impossible to add music. Does Ubuntu support iPod or any other MP3 player? Help please. New to Linux.

    I also have an ipod, putting songs on it works fine for me. You need gtkpod installed if i recall correctly

    Actually, all you have to do is to enable disk use via itunes in windows and then in ubuntu run your music managment program (ie Rhythmbox, Amarok, GTKpod, or Songbird... I use rhythmbox as it is very itunes-like in behaviour) and plug you ipod in. In the "Source" list of rhythmbox you will see your ipod. Just drag and drop music into it.

    Oh yes that is one issue, Apple's DRM. Here's my fix: In itunes, burn all the music to an audio dvd (or more than one) and then just use rhythmbox to import it all
