Files

~/.gtkpod/prefs
Per user configuration file. Should normally only updated through the program itself.
/etc/gtkpod/prefs
Global configuration file. Used if no configuration file exist for the user starting gtkpod.
~/.gtkpod/gtkpod.in
If this file exists, gtkpod will try to execute it at startup This is done before attempting to mount the iPod directory (optional) or read the iTunesDB (optional).
~/.gtkpod/gtkpod.out
If this file exists, gtkpod will try to execute it while exiting the program. This is done after attempting to unmount the iPod directory (optional) and sending the "eject" command to the iPod (optional).
/etc/gtkpod/gtkpod.in, /etc/gtkpod/gtkpod.out
Used instead of the per user scripts if the former ones don't exist and these do.
~/.gtkpod/gtkpod.load
If this file exists, gtkpod will execute it before loading the contents of an iPod with the iPod's mountpoint as the only command line argument. Put any commands needed to access the iPod here, for example if you need to mount the iPod manually.
~/.gtkpod/gtkpod.eject
If this file exists, gtkpod will execute it when ejecting an iPod with the the iPod's mountpoint as the only command line argument. Put any commands you want to execute after gtkpod has written the changes to the iPod here. For example:

sudo eject $1

gtkpod will not attempt to do any magic of it's own to mount/unmount/eject the iPod.
