Xubuntu 18.03 and Wine

I'm running Xubuntu 18.04 and I've been trying to get Wine installed
such that I can run iTunes on it.

My first try was to install Safari, and that worked just fine.

But iTunes...

The wiki page says I should install Wine (which is now 3.0.2), then
playonlinux, and install iTunes from there.

Wine and playonlinux install just fine.

But when I try to install iTunes 64-bit, playonlinux says I have to
install the 32-bit version, and then it installs wine 1.7.4 (!) even
though wine 3.0.2 is already installed (and works pretty well)..

If I try to install iTunes 32-bit, it says I'm running a 64-bit
machine and need to install the 64-bit version.

I haven't found a solution yet and wondered if anyone else has had
success in this (iTunes on Ubuntu or Xubuntu 18.04).

Thanks.

Instead you may need to mess with Wine directly.

Another option is to get your hands on a Windows license, install
Windows in a VM (or dual boot), and install iTunes within Windows.

Or cough up the $50 for Codeweavers Crossover WINE.

What "exactly" do you need iTunes for?

There may be another way, is it (as I expect) to manage a iPod of some
description?
