Apple has not released or provided Linux/Unix version for iTunes yet. But using emulation software like PlayOnLinux, we can install iTunes software on Ubuntu Linux.
PlayOnLinux is a graphical tool to run windows-based applications(especially games ) on the Linux platform. The system provides wrapper shell scripts with a .pol filename extension which specifies the configuration of Wine needed in order to install and run a particular application. PlayonLinux is basically a graphical frontend for Wine.
In this tutorial, we are assuming that PlayonLinux is already installed on your Ubuntu Machine.
