As you may know, iTunes is designed for Mac and Windows only. Therefore, it would be difficult for the Linux to run the program. But there are some ways for you to install it and use it in the Ubuntu version of Linux. The steps are not complicated.
First of all, you should download a program called WINE. This is a program which is written specifically for Linux. The program can allow people to run Windows-based programs on the Linux system. You would find that there are a lot of websites posting the links about WINE, particularly the community websites for Linux supports. Therefore, it would not be difficult for you to manage to download it.
Then, you need to configure the WINE that you have installed. You can type the words ‘winecfg’ without the quotation marks. You should choose the Windows XP option and select the Auto-detect in Drivers tab. Then, you can check the driver option and choose the ALSA driver. Of course, you should also uncheck theOSSoption in Audio tab. Then, everything would be done and you can use the WINE program easily.
After that, it is time to have the iTunes Linux done. You can download the iTunes in Apple. You would not see the iTunes Linux there so you just need to download the version for Windows. Then, you can type the commands in your Linux terminal, which would be to set up the program using wine. Then, you would be brought to a welcome page.
You can accept the license and configure the options as you like. You should not use autorun to run the program and you should type the commands step by step. Then, the thing would run smoothly and you would be able to use the iTunes Linux in your own computer.
During the process of installing the program in your Linux system, you may encounter several types of problems. Therefore, you have to pay attention to every step and type the corresponding commands to solve the problem. The auto-run option may make the installation fail so you have to be careful in this regards. You should also try your best to make sure that you download the latest version of the software because it may be complicated for you to install the program again later. Therefore, having the latest iTunes Linux installed would save your future efforts largely.
