I use amarok for managing my ipod and never had any issues.

With kubuntu intrepid, a notification pops up if I plug it in, and I
just need to click on there to mount it, then amarok can see it.
I had some issues getting the transcoding to work initially though,
but it works beautifully now.
(I have an old 2GB Nano, it was a corporate gift ok, I would never buy one:)
