Detailed tutorial how to install Itunes Ubuntu under Linux distribution!
Apple designed iTunes for use on Mac and Windows only. However, you can install and use iTunes Ubuntu on your Linux PC. For this, you will need compatibility software to make the download and installation smooth.
Wine emulator is the most popular software for this. Download it from the Synaptic Package Manager in Linux.
Next, download and save the latest version on iTunes from the Apple store. Sometimes, downloading the latest iTunes version may prove problematic so you may have to use an older version, which will work just fine.
After it has successfully downloaded, you can now install the executable iTunes .exe file via Wine.
Right click on the iTunes installer for installation options. Select - Open with Wines Windows Program Loader. The iTunes installer will start automatically. Follow the installation steps as you would in Windows till installation is complete.
Choose the iTunes automatic launch upon completion if you like, and then click finish to complete installation.
You now have iTunes on your Linux OS and it will play as well as it does on Windows. Note that installation may take longer than it does on Windows or Mac. Sometimes, your device may even freeze in the process.
However, the process should continue to completion even after the freeze up. If the freeze up takes unusually long or if the installer crashes, restart the computer and re-launch the iTunes installer once more.
The installation should now be successful. This is a quicker and easier way of installing iTunes Ubuntu without creating a virtual machine/OS.
