MPMan F60 / F55 / F50 Manager for Linux

Now available on Mac OS X!

Mplinuxman is a manager for the MPMan F60 portable MP3 player. This player has PC connectivity through USB and it comes bundled with Windows manager software, which has its limitations. The main one being it cant be used on Linux! Well now you can, Mplinuxman uses Linux kernel support for USB devices, and can be set up for hot swapping. If you own an MPMan F60 its time to wipe those windows and use Mplinuxman.

Easy to use interface using GTK 2
Downloading, uploading files to and from the player, deleteing,re-ordering files on the player
Playlist loading/saving and can create a random list of files to fit on the players available memory
Hot plugging, Mplinuxman can be set to start/stop when you connect/disconnect the MPMan
Lets you upload MP3s from the player to your PC unlike the Windows version
Uses default Linux console font to display ID3 tags on the player!

Mplinuxman is licensed under the GNU General Public License.

bugmenot reports here that the d-link dmp-220 mp3 player works with mplinuxman.

Patch for 1.4 on OS X
There is a small problem with the 1.4 source code when compiling on OS X. This patch should fix it. Download it here.
You can apply it by doing something like

 patch -p1 < mplinux14-osx-patch.diff 
from the source directory.

Version 1.4 released
* Added support for building on Mac OS X, thanks to Kris
* Added Japanese (by Shimada) and German (by Thomas) translations

* Support for MP-F55, changed the find devices routine to find F55
* Decreased playlist/directory loading times.
Download here
The source should be able to be build on OS X now, (look at the README.osx in the source) . If you make a build for OS X, please send me a binary so I can add it to the project. In the mean time if you need a OS X binary, there is one of version 1.4 beta here.
Thanks to those who helped in making this release.

Version 1.4 beta released
The main additions are: that you can now drag and drop files or directories from your filemanager onto mplinuxman (so you dont need to use the playlist anymore),
you can now customise the title string that is displayed on the player.
Also you can now use the advanced options to enable logging, and change the vendor/product id that mplinuxman looks for (so other similar players might be supported)
Please test , and email me with any bugs.
