Class: Keeping your ipod up to speed
Difficulty: Straightforward
Time: 30 second install, however long you need for songs
Desirability: Getting rid of itunes

For those of you who happen to have an ipod or are considering getting one but don't know if it will work in peppermint this is for you.

I have only tested this with one version of ipod (5.5g 30Gb) however the list of supported devices seems very complete.

The only thing you need to install is called 'gtkpod', you can install this one of two ways.

Enter this into a terminal (ctl+alt+T):

Code:
apt install gtkpod


or search for 'gtkpod' in Synaptic Package Manager.

After installing you can access this from the menu under the "Sound & Video" entry.

Everything from here is pretty self explanatory. You can sync music with the computer, retrieve music from the ipod, and add/remove playlists, etc.

Enjoy your ipod with out the headaches of itunes!
