Linux and Android

The Internet greatly simplified the lives of all people who have access to it. Not only due to the fast and wide possibilities in the field of obtaining information, but also because of new functions for consumers. Whether it’s a game license, clothing, food, films or music - recently, all this can be purchased without leaving home. Typically, such services are divided into some narrower specifics, for example, online stores of accessories or knives. But there are large, large-scale projects, which is a kind of sales platform, where any seller easily finds his buyer.

Or other sites where you can also promote your product, but with different conditions. The iTunes Store, which has existed since 2003, is indicative, at the moment most of the content contained on this site is music, movies and games. You can install the iTunes Store only on Apple devices, as well as on Windows. Unfortunately, there is no adaptive version for GNU / Linux, for this reason the user will have to dodge if he needs to install the Apple online store on any distribution. Below you will learn about all the possible ways to use the iTunes Store on Ubuntu.


PlayOnLinux is, in a sense, a fork of Wine. But it would be more correct to call this software add-in. All the convenience lies in automating the installation of Windows programs, which eliminates the need for manual configuration. Installing PlayOnLinux is done by adding a repository, there are five in total. There are no special differences, except that the date of appearance of the new version may vary. There is another way - using the .deb file. But it is better to use a repository, as this will provide the ability to automatically update. To install PlayOnLinux, you need to write these commands to the terminal:
wget -q "" -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install playonlinux

You can launch the installed application in two ways: using the built-in search engine or from the terminal.

However, without some libraries and Wine itself, nothing will work. Therefore, all this must be additionally installed:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt update
sudo apt install wine64
sudo apt install xterm

After that, PlayOnLinux will safely start and work. Now you need the iTunes installation file, which can be obtained from the official Apple website.

After the file is downloaded, in the open PlayOnLinux window, click on the “Install” button. Another window will open, in which it is already necessary to click on the active inscription "Install a program that is not in the list."

Installing iTunes on Linux is the standard way: select the name, program directory and so on. But this is an old method, now in the list of all applications you can find iTunes.

All that is required is to start the installation by clicking the appropriate button. Next, the necessary version of Wine and its setting will be automatically selected. But even so, you must have the downloaded 32-bit iTunes installer.

The main difference between manual and automatic installation is the ability to use the 64-bit version of iTunes, as well as another Wine.

Virtual machine

Software such as Wine most often does not imply full support for the required product. Usually you have to put up with various bugs or incorrect operation. Of course, you can experiment with versions of Wine or a program, but these are more likely to be “crutches” than a complete solution to the problem. For this reason, many users prefer the alternative - virtual machines, for example, VirtualBox.

You can install VirtualBox by downloading the .deb file.

Installation is done through the Ubuntu application manager, you can also use any other manager.

VirtualBox runs on Linux in much the same way it does on Windows. To create a virtual operating system, only an image is required, which can be obtained in various ways. In the case of Windows, it is illegal to download a pirated image or acquire a license. So that iTunes can work with the connected gadget, you will have to install an additional plug-in. It is located on the official website. After adding it, VirtualBox will be able to interact with USB.

There is also an option to use different operating systems. They can be on the same hard drive, or on different. Which installation of iTunes on Linux is the right one for each user to decide for himself.

long ago I tried to put the seventh tuna through the wain trix and got it. he is the only one who fucks me and he works with his code, harking at the variable data on my requests. but with the 10th tuna, everything is much better - he did not swear at me at the start, he did not snort at my requests. he ignored the installation order, the deserter damned.

Duck and what else to wait? Who will put firewood for the i-device? Anyone will put almost any prog under the vine, and they periodically forget about firewood. We must try to slip them.
