Those who know me might be shocked to here that a little while ago I got an iPod (iPod Touch 4th generation), as a cast-off from [livejournal.com profile] aviva_m's parents. However, I'm having difficulty transferring music onto it. Simply copying it onto the iPod isn't enough; you've got to do something else to make the iPod aware of it.

The Net of a Million Lies says a program called gtkpod will do the job for me, on my desktop running XFCE on Ubuntu Linux. However, this seems to rely on the iPod's filesystem being mounted as a regular directory; and this is not (no longer?) the case in the current version of XFCE. It automatically mounts two sub-areas of the iPod filesystem, but not under /media; and in any case gtkpod seems to want the whole filesystem mounted. I've managed to get the filesystem mounted with a truly horrible hack, but gtkpod is still not playing ball.

Has anyone managed to transfer music to an iPod from recent versions of Ubuntu, and if so, how did you do it?
