    iTunes, Quicktime, Safari in Ubuntu 10.04 Using PlayOnLinux

    Install PlayOnLinux, it's in the repos. It's a front end that will take care of most of the WINE configuration. From a terminal.

    # sudo apt-get install playonlinux

    run it, it will update for a while, install the Microsoft fonts to be ready to use. Click install, then multimedia, then iTunes. point it to the iTunes setup file

    It's not available, and no matter what anyone tells you it's not worth trying to run in Wine. It won't run well, and you won't like it.

    No is my first answer, iTunes is not official available for Ubuntu. It can be installed via WINE, but I am fairly certain functionality will be limited.

    Is there a specific reason you need iTunes on Ubuntu, iPod, iPhone etc.

    iTunes is not available for Linux

    You will have to use one of the alternatives available for Linux. You can find a list here.

    Rejeev,

    iTunes is not available natively for any Linux distribution, however you may install iTunes using Wine. Read more about how to do that here.

      Wine is a compatibility layer that lets you install Windows programs on Unix-like systems, including Ubuntu.
      Using Wine, it’s possible to install Apple’s iTunes jukebox software on a Ubuntu system. The implementation isn’t quite perfect, but it will let you play music and video files.
