Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is a welcome surprise for those of us waiting for Ubuntu 10.04, the Lucid Lynx. Several users are reporting that their iPod Touches and iPhones (including the 3GS) work in alpha 3 - without tweaking, without jailbreaking, without patching - with Nautilus and Rythmbox.

I know how to create iPod videos, Handbrake is indeed the best tool for the job. Gtkpod doesn't want to import them properly though, it gives me an error most of the time and the rest it tries to dump them into the music library. Audiobooks just get dumped into the music section which is odd, since the iPod is typically able to treat m4b files as audiobooks without trouble. Gtkpod does make hash of the iPod's audiobook database more times than not though. Oh well, I've got a Rockbox-enabled Sansa Fuze for Audiobooks and I encode any Audiobooks I purchase on CD to ogg vorbis anyway. I just have quite a few from iTunes, all of which have the Fairplay DRM removed naturally.
