Is it possible to have plays in Ubuntu (using Banshee, Rythmbox or
whatever) update the iTunes library?
iTunes is not available for Linux (You know this). You can use it via playonlinux app.
To install iTunes than do this:
Open the terminal(CTRL+ALT+T) and run following command to install playonlinux.
sudo apt-get install playonlinux
Open playonlinux and Click on install. You will see bunch of application based on category including most popular program, most downloaded, most rated. Type iTunes in the searchbar and you will find the several version of iTunes.
Select the version that you want to install.
- You will be informed with version that you are installing and the location of your installation with some warning Click on next to proceed.
- PlayonLinux now download the iTunes or ask for the source depending upon the version you have choosen.
- You can finally see installation widget for iTunes Click on Next and follow the procedure like installing simple application in windows.
- After following all procedure iTunes will be install in your system.
Note: PlayonLinux has some issue (just some I tested it myself) with iTunes 10. Therefore you can install iTunes 7. You can use wine to install version 10. But the performance isn’t satisfactory like version 7.
This should solve the problem, just use iTunes to play the music.
