Why do you need iTunes on Ubuntu? – NoBugs Apr 10 '13 at 1:23

Apparently and according to WineHQ, iTunes does not work with Wine in a very good manner. Specially after version 7.

What you are seeing is normal and cannot be fixed using current versions of software.

If you want to try out alternatives that run in Ubuntu please visit these questions, there is already plenty of suggestions on the site

Has an alternative and if you have it available you can use VirtualBox to install Windows and run iTunes from inside the guest system.

And don't forget if using VirtualBox: It will need some extra user rights for usb support: – jan groth Feb 6 '12 at 19:23
