Clementine, dolphin, digikam & gwenview will all copy to external media which mount at run/media

of course it's a gmusicbrowser issue
file browser works with no permission issue
Clementine works with no permission issue
as do digikam, gwenview. ez=tag
probably something gnome related, I use KDE on a RPM based system
I use GMB on a pc that is basically a music player having never resolved this & a few other issues
I use clementine to make playlists [which GMB opens with no problem]

Questions / Copying Playlist Files

I'm trying to get songs in the order they are listed on a playlist copied to a SD card or thumb drive
when I right click copy to device
the failure is permissions

after being open for a few days
some songs won't play, resource not found [a square icon displays]
the only cure seems to be restarting the pc
I wouldn't care except Gmusic doesn't just skip to the next song, but requires I clear the nag box

I'm trying to come up with 999 song playlists to use with various hardware that accepts flash drives...
after manually deleting songs from a list of 1300-1500 songs, I'll be left with 700-1000 songs
I've been using clementine, which unfortunately will not copy songs to media with out organizing.  Organizing leaves the songs sorted alphabetically or some other not random way...
I'm not able to get any feedback on how to get clementine where I need it work over the past few years

You seem to be willing to help me understand how GMB works & what is possible
I don't have much aptitude for the commandline stuff, but I'll try

I don't want to exclude[filter] any songs out initially
the que thing doesn't work in a way that is helpful in this endeavor, as the songs disappear from the list as they are played.

got the other thread going in a effort to at least be able to build the lists copying one song at a time to a list without losing my place :D

what about a random list of a predetermined length?
I'd settle for a list of 1500
the goal being 999 song that I want to hear the extra few 100 songs being deleted out

Questions / Displaying playlist order[solved]

I'm on the default layout
How can I have a column displaying play order number?
I'm playing a random playlist of all songs
right now I'm listening to 249 of 13679

Questions / Generating Random Playlists
« on: July 28, 2015, 08:49:01 »
my goal is to generate playlists of 1300 random songs
I see how to drag entire artists, genres, albums
I have a playlist that appeared when I clicked on a song when I 1st opened Gmusicbrowser, this playlist is all songs in a random order list that play in the order listed.   

How would I turn the entire library of 13000 into 10 playlists of 1300 random songs?

I use various simple mp3 players with flash cards
the random function is  not very random out of a 700 file playlist I seem to hear about 50 songs all the time
I've been using Clementine which insists on organizing the files alphabetically
I'd be happy if I could copy the files in the order of the playlist

Mageia 5 has GmusicBrowser 1.1.13
which has support for Mate media keys

thanks for the reply

bear with me
I'd rather not get ahead of the Mageia repository, I'm on version Gmusic 1.1.1
which leaves setting a custom set of shortcuts
How would I do such a thing :D

volume works ok
ctrl up=increase volume
ctrl down=decrease volume

on most players I use
I use F9=play/pause
ctrl left=previous
ctrl right=shuffle mode
