I was given an Ipod touch 2g by a friend. Used it for awhile on its own, but wanted to link it to my computer. Tried Gtkpod & Rythymbox for mounting/syncing Ipod with Ubuntu, but there always comes a pt. where something fails or simply doesn't exist as the instructions say, and then I'm lost, as I am essentially computer illiterate (a friend set up Ubuntu for me, but he doesn't know mp3s) So I 'wiped' it by clicking 'reset all settings'. Now it's useless. Touch screen shows a usb cord aiming at ITunes logo. So, what to do? Currently, when my computer asks if I want to Initialize Ipod, and I click OK, I get this error message:
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs: Mountpoint Already registered
My computer is using Lucid Lynx
ps - unclear on distinction among sync, mount & initialize...
