I don't think there's a lot of point installing OS X programs on Ubuntu. They won't run.

The .DMG files are disk image files. You can mount these like you would an iso image file under linux as a loop-back device. Not something I've played with but from searching is would seem to be as easy as this:

You would need to do this as root so it would be:

  1. sudo mount -t hfs -o loop myImage.dmg /macdisk


So you should be able t read the contents, but as iJack says no Mac application will run under Ubuntu.

There's several. If you really want to use iTunes however it is reported to run quite well under Wine.

Just to add to Pyroflea's note - that's the Windows version of iTunes, not the Mac one!

Ah, right! Thank you.

Is there any difference interface/feature wise between the OSX/Windoze version though? I don't see why there would be.

Little if any difference AFAIK. Just wanted to make it clear to the OP as he started out with the idea of running OS X software on Ubuntu.
