    Default iTouch on Suse ?

    Hello,

    My iPod Touch (16Go) doesn't seem to be recognized by Suse. When I plug it in, nothing happens at all (except that it seems to start charging its battery). Nothing pops up, it doesn't automount, it's not seens by KDE or by GtkPod... Nothing at all.

    It tried installing a bunch of iPod-related stuff from the repository, rebooted, nothing more happens.

    Can someone please help me ?

    Thanks,

    Nicolas

    One addition : in Yast, when I list all the devices on my machine, I see that the iPod is seen as a webcam !

    Any ipod touch owners with 'suse out there? - openSUSE Forums

    It's possible that if you don't want to dual boot, you could install XP in Virtual Box and run it there.

    Hiya,

    Last time I looked into this--admittedly that was a while ago--I read that
    because the filesystem on the iPhone/iPod Touch is encrypted we're SOL.
    Personally, I run WinXP on a secondary machine and use that. If it ever
    does get figured out though the Songbird application looks really slick.

    However, there is this petition to apple:
    http://www.petitiononline.com/itmslin/petition.html

    and this from their 'contact us' page:
    http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunesapp.html

    Now I know Apple is a company not a government and petitions have less
    effect on them than if it's going to make them money or not but hell, it's
    worth a try no?

    With the latest libgpod4, you can sync music in your iTouch.
    openSUSE 12.3 (x86_64) with Kernel 3.7.10-1.16-desktop and KDE 4.11.2 on MacBook Pro

    libimobiledevice - Teaching Penguins to talk to fruits

    Add the openSUSE repository and install libimobiledevice along dependencies. openSUSE 11.3 should support iPhone/iPod Touch natively on the GNOME Desktop.
