Actually it was a little easier than that for me since i have a complete
gnome2 instalation with dbus, hal and gvm (gnome-volume-manager). then
the iPod is automatcally mounted in /mount/ipod. all you have to do is
point gtkpod to it with its menu options and whalah. I even opted to
have gtkpod automaicaly open when the iPod is pluged in, and it unmounts
the iPod when i close it. and they say linux isn't user friendly. ;-)
( is it just me, or is gtkpod 10x faster than iTunes? )
