ipod nano and ubuntu

Asked by Valkyrie on 2009-03-25

hello my name is Vanessa, I live in Costa Rica.

I recently received an Ipod nano (4th generation) I refuse to format my computer in order to get windows so I can use it. There must be a way I can use it with ubuntu. I have Ubuntu 8.04 "Hardy Heron".

Please help me!!!

P.S: I am very basic user so I would need step by step instructions :S

Hi

It's easy to follow these steps.

1. Go to Application menu (top bar beside the unbuntu logo) and select Add/Remove

2. Type in search box for gtkpod and it will search it for you.

3. Tick the one you want for gtkpod

4. Press Apply button and it will install it for you. It will ask your admin password to install apps.
It will automatically installed the applications for you.

5. It then should be in application menu ===>>> Gtkpod under Applications menu ===>>>Sound & Video

6. Gpxpod is under Applications menu===>> Graphics

Hope this help! :-)
