    Creative Zen mp3 software on Linux


    I was quite disappointed when I came home after buying my mp3 and saw that I needed Windows XP to install the software that goes with the player.
    If I installed Wine, would I be able to install this software?

    Thank you.

    Not using Wine

    Sorry, I guess I should have elaborated a little.

    I got my Zen working but not by using Wine. I used libnjb, gnomad2 and a few other things I had to add. There is a web page that explains how to.

    Good luck.

    thanks for replying.
    I am using the creative zen vision m.
    I have seen the sight that you posted, as well as a some info on Ubuntu forums and also gnomad2's own sight.
    I have tried that method but still run into problems. I am sure that this has a lot to do with being new at using linux and command lines, but even following the instructions carefully, no luck as of yet.

    One thing I am concerned with (and not sure if I should be or not) is I have properly unistallted everything (gnomad2, etc) before attempting to reinstall.

    I will try again today and post some of my efforts. I would appericate any feedback from anyone watching...

    Just use gnomad2 (Gnomad2 - Getting your Jukebox/Zen running under Linux) its a gui that is very simple to use. It works without any problem on my Ubuntu 7.04.
