Hi,
Trying to solve copy and paste of song titles out of iTunes for inserting into Clementine or Linux similar. Has anybody solved this problem?

What does that mean, you need iTunes on linux?

You can install Virtualbox with Windows and iTunes. I had it years ago when I was addicted to Apple.
But I never heard about running stable on wine.

Clementine seems to support some access methode of media-files on iPod/iPhone
as stated on their wike here: Using your iPod or portable media player with Clementine
Though you wont' be able to copy from iTunes, but you can get the media files either through MTP or USB loaded into Clementine.

Yes...what OS is iTunes running under? It was my understanding that it won't run under Linux, even with wine.
