Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

bansheeThis post is thanks to Ricardo Ferreira who sent us the tip (actually most of the post is written by him).

iPod sync with Banshee is broken in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx since HAL is now D-Bus activated and does not have an init script. This bug was fixed by Banshee developers last night but isn't yet available anywhere - except GIT.

So here is a short guide to compile the latest podsleuth from Git in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.

1. Install the dependencies required to compile Podsleuth

sudo apt-get install git-core automake libmono-dev libndesk-dbus-glib1.0-cil-dev libndesk-dbus1.0-cil-dev libhal-dev libdbus-1-dev libsgutils2-dev mono-mcs mono-gmcs

2. Get podsleuth from GIT:
git clone git://git.gnome.org/podsleuth 

3. Compile podsleuth

cd podsleuth
./autogen.sh && ./configure --prefix=/usr && make

And finally, install it with:
sudo make install
