Is there a user friendly way to access a MTP device from Ubuntu such as an Android 3.0 tablet?
One suggestion is to use Ubuntu One or DropBox to move stuff on/off.
Ubuntu's default music management application, Rhythmbox (Applications → Sound & Video → Rhythmbox Music Player), supports first to fifth generation iPods, including the iPod mini, iPod Photo, iPod Shuffle, iPod nano, and iPod Video. Rhythmbox can transfer music to these iPods and create playlists.
I think your answer can be found here in the 10.04 manual:
