At least Amarok detects my Ipod shuffle automatically.

However, you might need a high-power USB port to make it work properly  
(check manuals?). For example, I had to change my cable to another USB  
connector until it started working. Low-power ports were on the  
front-panel, while the high-power ports were on the back side of my tower.

Have you tested your player in an Ubuntu machine? If it works in Ubuntu,  
it also should work in Kubuntu.

Sorry, can't say any online help site here since I didn't need any.
