Hmm. I tried this, downloading from, and it seems to have corrupted the databases on my 6th-Generation Nano so that the iPod thinks it is devoid of music and playlists.

Hello everyone,

I've successfully synced my iPod Nano 6G with gtkpod on Ubuntu 11.10.
Here's a brief summary of what I've done to get this running:

- replace Ubuntu's libgpod 0.8.0 with 0.8.2. I may put packages into
  my PPA at a later point for easier installation, although precise
  already has the correct recent version available.

- place the infamous into /usr/lib/libgpod/
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 543K 2012-01-21 19:34
  md5sum (32 bit): bb7180cb0c9cee2a605a5a276672913e
  (Google is your friend.)

- after Ubuntu automounts the iPod, force it to read-write mode using
  sudo mount -o remount,rw,force <mountpoint>

- take ownership of all files & directories
  sudo chown -R <your_user_name>: <mountpoint>

- run gtkpod

- sync, be happy :-)
