will this work on linux?
I use mine on Kubuntu 8.10.
I’m not very demanding - I put tracks on the Fuze and listen to them grouped as albums. I don’t hold with playlists - I come from a simpler age when you put the needle in the groove at the edge, and listened till it reached the middle, then turned the thing over
If you want playlists to work seemlessly, or want to watch videos, you might find problems.
USB MSC mode works most effectively.
MTP mode works OK if you don’t want to use the microSD card - libmtp supports external storage, but I have yet to find a music manager app that will use it in an effective manner.
If you search the forum for RhythmBox you should find a recent thread with blow by blow details. There’s also a current thread on how to hack playlists…
