Amarok is a KDE-native application but will work in Gnome. Over Rhythmbox
and gtkpod, Amarok is preferred because a) it's a better music
player/organiser and b) it won't make you initialise the ipod. More than
any other KDE programme, Amarok generates the most envy for Gnome users!
TO get it:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install amarok
In case you need to perform a manual mount (if it has previously been
initialised in OSX it'll mount fine though):
Take not of the device name:
sudo fdisk -l (it'll be something like sdb1)
Create a mount point for it :
sudo mkdir /media/ipodname
Mount the iPod:
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/ipodname
Let me know if you have any issues with it and I'll take you through it.
