OK, I know very similar questions have been asked before. But I have searched for the last week, and cannot figure out how to manage iPod playlists on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit.
All the "usual suspects" (Rhythmbox, Banshee, Amarok, etc.) are completely unable to edit/create/delete iPod playlists correctly. The only program I've ever had any success with was gtkpod, which is unusable on 12.04 64-bit.
So what options do I have? I have a 4th generation video iPod (sort of old). The default music player, Rhythmbox, seems to put playlists on the iPod, but all it does is append. So adding one file to a playlist causes Rhythmbox to double every other file in the playlist!
Is it truly impossible to use both Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit and have a manageable iPod?
