Plenty of folks have reported so far that their iPod Touches work with Lucid. Well, my brother has one he got for Christmas, and he says it's not working for him. He came up with a (very plausible) hypothesis though. Maybe it has to be used with Windows or OSX once (as some sort of activation mechanism?) before it'll talk to a Linux machine.
So, I'm asking: have any of you have an iPod Touch and used it on Ubuntu 10.04 without first using it on a proprietary OS and had it work?
EDIT: That was quick! Matthew Garrett says that one sync with iTunes is needed before it can be used with Linux.
EDIT2: Paul Sladen adds: I don't think we can generate the initial databases first time
