Just tried to install some oggs onto my wife’s iPod Shuffle 1G and using the add Files button from within GTKPod I get an error similar to:

/usr/share/gtkpod-aac/scripts/convert-2mp3.sh exit status 5

I had to install the following to make it work.

sudo apt-get install id3v2 lame vorbis-tools

    Thanks for the tip — now my wife can jam the Korn on her shuffle! 😉
