Hi,
Check the "testing" filter checkbox, it's a beta script.
However, to avoid wasted efforts, why do you want to use iTunes for?

I was wondering the same thing. If you are trying to sync your iDevice to it, dont bother. iDevice sync does not work on Linux yet, unfortunately. At least not to my knowledge.

I suspect that the problem is that the script doesn't download iTunes for you, so you must have downloaded it already, and it asks where the file is.
You haven't answered my question either.

Because its an Apple product, and apple only wants you to use their stuff.

Again, even if you get itunes installed, you cant use it with your ipod or phone or iAnything, so what are you trying to do with itunes, because if its that, it wont work at all.

I've been told that Amarok features syncing, but haven't tried personally.

I have tried. It does for older versions of the firmware, but if your iDevice has been updated in the last year, it will probably fail.

Amarok with the gtkpod package installed used to work. Its worth trying.

That all depends on iOS version on your device and device type. No problem trying it though. Just dont be surprised if it doenst work.
