ipod touch and ubuntu 10.04

October 6th, 2010 No comments

At first i was like wow, then i was like wtf, now i am like omg. Thats the short version 😉

I wanted to sync my ipod touch and was really astonished that ubuntu recognized the ipod out of box and i could play songs from the device right away. Trying to sync music from the pc to the pod created a pop-up-box per song stating: Error while getting peer-to-peer dbus connection. After some searching i found out that using gconf (apps->rhythmbox->plugins->ipod) and deactivating the ipod plugin actually makes it work (this, btw, was the wtf moment for me). I’d also like to share the comment of the person posting the solution:

I don’t know how or why it works, but this is true of most things I’ve learned about Linux.

I think there’s nothing more to add to that . . .

Using my bluetooth headset i wanted to listen to music at work without the hassle of coping with cables. Setting up my Nokia BH-103 with a level one MDU-0005USB connected to the USB-port at my monitor worked out of the box. Then i added 2 cool plugins to rhythmbox as i’m rather fond of cover art:

This is it.
