Title: Recent update broke my custom layout - What happened?
Post by: helloindustries on February 21, 2011, 04:49:23
Today's update removed the option for me to select a custom layout, saved in /home/.config/gmusicbrowser/layouts

The option to have GMB look like other players is great and all that, but i'd really prefer to have my custom layout back, please.

I don't see what change could have caused that, can you be more specific ?

in case you're using my ppa, i cleaned up the default layouts a few days ago after evaluating them since i think it's better to ship less but nicer layouts :)

i don't see how that could affect your custom layout selection though, are you sure you're not just missing the other default layouts?

If you maintain the shimmer PPA, then yes.
I suppose i should really have mentioned that in my original post...

The layout options i have are:

make it look like>
exaile
quodlibet
rhythmbox
rhythmbox compact

minimal
netbook
shimmer
small player
with queue
with search
with tabbedlists

And that's all.

yes, i reduced the layouts to these, if you edited a layout in /usr/share/gmusicbrowser/layouts then i'm afraid it's gone.
if your layout is in /home/$USER/.config/gmusicbrowser/layouts/ then it should in fact show up in the list.

My custom layout is in /home/$USER/.config/gmusicbrowser/layouts/custom2.layout but doesn't show up.

Is the file completely gone? 

The other issue is that it could have "lost" it's [Title] at the top and would not show up.

I am sure that no update removed a file from /home/$USER/.config/gmusicbrowser/layouts/

it occurs to me that it may be that my custom layout is based on a layout no longer included with GMB/shimmer.

Does anyone have the file/data for the layout; Playlist, Library & Context?

hi, sorry for the inconvenience, you can find the layout here: https://github.com/squentin/gmusicbrowser/blob/master/layouts

indeed it's problematic for layouts that are based on others, possibly the "classic" gmusicbrowser layouts will return in a submenu/category, but i have yet to decide if/how.

You could also use a tool like Meld Diff to append the old into the new... Cumbersome, but effective..

I would also recommend that each layout be parsed from the master layout into individual files so that ppl could download these for the layouts directory...  I could do this if anyone agrees...

Thanks :)
That seems to have solved the not-listed problem, but now the layout is completely wrong....

i updated the ppa to version 1.1.6ppa6 yesterday and now the original layouts are included again, so your original configuration should work again.

Ahh *checks* WOO!
Thanks!

no problem ;)
and sorry for the initial irritation.

in fact for the future you might make your layout complete and independent (not "based on"), just to be sure history doesn't repeat itself...

No apologies required. Not your fault.
I'll look into merging my custom layout as suggested.

Again; thanks for the update, and the way the classic/'make it look like' options are arranged.
