im using ubuntu and yes.. i got it working with gtkpod but i have to do
this to mount my ipod
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb2 /mnt/ipod
the default /media/ipod mount doesn't work correctly with gtkpod u needa
mount it as vfat
ALSO if u use GTKPOD 0.94 it should work correctly after setting up ur ipod
if you use any thing newier the only way iv gotten it to run is by doing
Then launch GTKPOD in the same consol
another trick is before you keep sync'ing music.. gtkpod might say the
transfer is complete.. BUT this isn't always the truth.. check the ipod it
should tell you if any data is being transfered by a little spitting icon in
the top left
hopes this helps.. if ya got any other Q's lemme know :)
