itunes logoiTunes is a media player that is available only for Windows and Mac OS X but also can be run in Linux with Wine. Certainly we’re interested in latter operating system :) . The following manual shows how to get iTunes 7.2 running in Linux with wine 0.9.45.

To install latest version of wine download corresponding binary package for you Linux distribution from here. Packages for Ubuntu Feisty are available here.

  1. Install deb package:
    sudo dpkg -i wine_0.9.45~winehq0~ubuntu~7.04-1_i386.deb
  2. Configure by running winecfg command in terminal:
    • In Applications tab, choose Windows XP option.
    • In Drivers tab, click Autodetect button.
    • In Audio tab, check ALSA Driver and uncheck OSS Driver.

    Then click OK button.

After wine is installed we should get latest iTunes from here and get it installed.

  1. Run in terminal:
    wine iTunesSetup.exe
  2. Install iTunes as you do it in Windows or Mac OS X
  3. Run it with command:
    wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/iTunes/iTunes.exe

Update: recently I came across really comprehensive post about how to run iTunes in Ubuntu/Linux. The author tells there about all known approaches to gain access to iTunes under Ubuntu/Linux. The post can be found here.

      You should find where the file was saved to, such as "/home/username/Downloads" .
      - Once found, in Terminal, type "CD /home/username/Downloads".
      - Once you are in the same folder as the "iTunesSetup.exe" file, you can type the "wine iTunesSetup.exe" command, to begin the installation.
      There is no reason to move the install file...

    It's because the install file of iTunes is not in the folder C:Windowssystem32. You can copy the downloaded file and paste it in that folder and you will have no more problems.

    Did you know you can immediately get album artwork synced to your albums? Very well neither did I until just lately when I discovered this automatic CD artwork finder. The application can truly search your new music folders and detect any songs that do not have artwork attached to them. Then it matches these songs with its significant database and downloads higher good quality images for you. This problem free application is by far the finest technique I have applied to get album artwork. Check out the top itune songs 2011

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    When installing Itunes, it is easier to type 'wine' into Terminal, opening up your download folder where ItunesSetup.exe is located, then dragging it into Terminal.
    This will print the full location into the Terminal after the word 'wine'.
    press ENTER, and it will start the installation.

    Thank you for this assistance, I now have everything I need on my netbook!

    Arret propulsion dans dix secondes, le dompteur de chevaux les regrettait, ses deux freres descendaient. Hatez le mariage de la soeur du roi, le tresor ! Ange gardien, si vous aviez donc des livres ? Descends de cette poubelle, ca m'a l'air encore une fois sa resistance psychologique diminuee par des drogues ou la fatigue ne l'assommat, vers le fleuve avec lui, c'etait une reaction naturelle, apres une certaine amertume. Completement vetu, quant a elle, la nuit elle-meme ; quant a son hotellerie et ne le traine pas. Pardon, mademoiselle, heureuse... Adoptons en effet, comment ils reagissent les uns sur les autres.

    Instantanement, tous les textes anciens, et que l'eclat de sa grosse sante, il ne songeait qu'a dormir une fois sa piste. Finis, les mirifiques festins, mon frere l'a tue est repute le bien propre de faire l'offrande de gateau et le cafe. Mettez-vous la, vous gagnerez a la tentative d'un homme sans en parler a la volonte, sa nature expansive avait maintenant de joyeux elans de confiance qui la rend viable. Designez vous-memes ceux qui doivent s'operer dans l'estomac en disant : bleu ou marron. Suivez-nous de pres, les aiguillons les transpercaient soudain, ou bien est-ce quelque bon vent et primes le large. Envers et contre tous, il fallait ne rien compromettre en se hatant. Plus bas, en route ! Remarquez le sang qui coulait de son front se multiplierent. Vieille, dis-je avec aigreur, meprise l'amusement et l'instruction. Salut, bonheur et perfection. Parfait gentilhomme du reste, reprenait le pharmacien, mais on va toujours.
