mktunes - convert GNUtunesDB's XML into iTunesDB format SYNOPSIS
Convert GNUtunesDB.xml into iTunesDB format --help display this help and exit --version output version information and exit -m, --mount=DIRECTORY iPod mountpoint. Default is $IPOD_MOUNTPOINT -n, --ipod-name=NAME iPod Name (For unlabeled iPods). iTunes displays this name, not the label. -v, --volume=VALUE Adjust volume +-VALUE% (example: --volume +5) -e, --energy Save energy (= Disable scrolling title) -g, --fwguid=HEXVAL Enforce iPod serial/firewire-guid. Late 2007 iPod models (3gen Nano, Classic, Touch) refuse to work unless the iTunesDB has been signed with a sha1 hash. This hash helps to detect corrupted databases, prevents sharing an iTunesDB between multiple iPods and locks out non-apple software. GNUpod is able to create the required hash value if it knows the iPods serial number, this is a 16 chars long hex value such as: '000ba3100310abcf' and should be autodetected on GNU/Linux (via /proc/bus/usb/devices) and Solaris (via prtconf -v). Use this switch to set the serial if the autodetection somehow fails to find the correct serial number of your iPod. You can also specify the value in your configuration file (gnupodrc) as 'mktunes.fwguid = 000ba3100310abcf'. AUTHOR

scrobble-cli - a submitter for portable devices SYNOPSIS
scrobble-cli [options] DESCRIPTION
scrobble-cli is a program to submit information about tracks which have been listened to from a portable music player to (previously known as Audioscrobbler). scrobble-cli can read this information from .scrobbler.log files (i.e. produced by the open Rockbox firmware), from iPod databases, or from devices that use MTP (aka Plays for Sure). In addition to this, scrobble-cli can adjust the date/time information relating to when the track was listened to before uploading. This can be useful if your device is set to a different timezone to the machine you upload from. OPTIONS
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -c, --playcounts Remove the iPod "Play Counts" database file after submission. -d, --database Submit information from an iPod database (requires -l) -h, --help Show summary of options. -l, --location <path> Filesystem location of the .scrobbler.log file, or the iPod database. For .scrobbler.log this should be the path to, and including the file name. For iPods, this should normally be the mount point - (/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesDB is automatically appended to this path). -m, --mtp Submit from a MTP (aka Plays for Sure) device -n, --now Recalculates the times each track was played before submission. Automatically enabled if using a .scrobbler-timeless.log or MTP device. -p, --password <password> account password -r, --recalc <datetime> Recalculates the play time for each track. <datetime> should be a UNIX timestamp. -t, --timestamp <offset> Override the detected system timezone offset from UTC <offset> is the number of hours from UTC, i.e. +3, -4.5 -u, --username <username> account username -v, --verbose <level> Output verbosity level -w, --proxy_host <hostname> Proxy hostname or IP address (requires -x) -x, --proxy_port <port> Proxy port number (requires -w) -y, --proxy_user <username> Username for proxy authentication -z, --proxy_pass <password> Password for proxy authentication WWW This manual page was written by Robert Keevil <>, and is licensed under version 2 of the GPL.
