I use iTunes on Windows and recently installed Ubuntu 16.04.1. How can I install the same iTunes version in Ubuntu?


  • you can install a slightly older version of itunes, but not the latest, run sudo apt install playonlinux then once that is done, open play on linux, select the install button, wait until it is done loading, select itunes, then follow the instructions onscreen

The only somewhat RELIABLE way to run iTunes on a Ubuntu host, is to install Virtualbox with a Windows guest OS. Then install the standard latest version of iTunes in Windows.

Forget about trying Wine or Playonlinux, etc.
