Questions / gmbrc crashed again
« on: September 10, 2015, 03:02:21 »
Hi.
After system crash I restarted Mint 17.1, finding:
gmbrc        8,5 kB
gmbrc.bak         0 byte
gmbrc.bak.20150909.xz         2,1 MB
...
...
gmbrc.error         0 byte
gmbrc.premove         3,1 MB

when my last backupped gmbrc is 12,4 MB
GMB says my collection is empty...

After restoring it, everything is fine.
What happened?

Thanks

I received a BRAND NEW (2 gmbrc's mixed together) gmbrc file from Quentin that seems to be containing all my (precious) data.
Let's hope this problem doesn't happen again in the future.
Thanks sincerely to Quentin!  :) :) :)

Hi, I'm back!  :) :) :)
First of all: YES! Please try to restore my data! The three gmbrc files I sent you are the most recent and they should contain (don't know in what manner) all the data I need. Thanks in advance for that!!

Then:
My attempts to restore gmbrc were simply the substitution of the 'corrupted' with the backupped ones that I keep in other disks (exactly what I sent you).

Neither I know the cause or what happened. I just remember of a strange and unusual very-long session of file-verifying (?) that I stopped after a long time because apparently with no end... Don't care of Extra: it's a partition of passage where I spend the files not yet stored in gmb.
No special filesystem: just an ordinary EXT4 under Linux Mint. This is the first time I have such a big problem with my music collection.

Hope in your help... Thank you again!

Quentin, thanks for your answer.
No, I didn't move or rename any of my files.
I noticed (more or less 2/3 months ago) that some files were losing their album image (each album has an image, each file has an album) with no apparent reason. Reassigning them was a matter of seconds, but after a while the image disappeared again.
One day my system was heavily slowed down: after half an hour waiting gmb could end up with its checks, I closed the little progress window and I realized what happened.
Thinking it was a database corruption, I tried to restore an old gmbrc file, but with no evident success.
At the moment, also files with correct ratings, etc., have lost their image, but many of them show an unwanted one (every file > the same image).
I sent you my last 3 backupped gmbrc files: note their size is decreasing, but I didn't erase or clean anything.
Thanks

Questions / [SOLVED] Lost ratings, images, etc...
« on: June 27, 2015, 21:24:16 »
Hi,
my collection is 43882 songs.
Few days ago I found 17097 files which had lost their ratings, album images, # reproduction/skips, genres, labels...
Thinking it was a gmbrc file corruption problem I restored a backup version of it, but with no positive result.
Am I doing something wrong? What can I do to get back my settings?
Thanks

« on: June 12, 2014, 20:39:40 »
from your main page:
support ogg vorbis, mp3 and flac files (and mpc/ape/m4a with gstreamer or mplayer)

I'm trying to read some .mpc files (with gstreamer) but it fails:

Errore di riproduzione : Impossibile decodificare lo stream. at /usr/bin/../share/gmusicbrowser/gmusicbrowser_gstreamer-0.10.pm line 137.

Nedd some extra tool?

Bye'n thanks

Questions / Re: newbie: How to move [many] files and covers
« on: July 23, 2011, 16:58:50 »
OK, that's not the problem.
The real problem is that the perl command tells gmbrc where will be stored FILES I'm going to move, but what really I want to move is a WHOLE HIERARCHICAL SYSTEM of nested FOLDERS and - finally - files.
So , if I move files only, everything is fine (tags etc.), but if I move all folders gmbrc doesnt find the files it is searching, so I need to rescan and newly rescanned files are "new" with-no-tags.
Here is the problem, isn't it?

Questions / Re: newbie: How to move [many] files and covers
« on: July 23, 2011, 12:55:47 »
I think the problem is the terminal slash "/", try :
perl -pi.premove -e 's#/home/ego/Scrivania/VANNELLI#/home/ego/Musica#g' ~/.config/gmusicbrowser/gmbrc

OK, that's good... so and so...  ;)
Now the Perl script (without final '/') correctly overwrites gmbrc.
But, relaunching gmb, my settings are always lost: it reads VANNELLI in /home/ego/Musica, but nothing more than that. No counts, ratings...

Goin' to try again...

Question: how has to be set Settings/Library/ FoldersToSearch before and after filemoving?

Thank You  :)

2 things
1) gmusicbrowser must NOT be running while you run the perl -pi... command
2) make sure you replace by the exact same folder, if you move everything that was in /A/ into /B/ use :
perl -pi.premove -e 's#/A/#/B/#g' ~/.config/gmusicbrowser/gmbrc

you can move the files however you want, use a graphical file browser if you want.

I'm going crazy...  :o
Target: to move folder "VANNELLI" scanned and tagged in gmb from /home/ego/Scrivania to /home/ego/Musica without losing gmb data and tags

OK, let's start...
1- in gmb I can play files, add rating and follow playcounts...
2- quit gmb
3- gedit ~/.config/gmusicbrowser/gmbrc

SO NOTHING HAPPENED!!!
Let's go on...

8- run gmb: <Playlist Empty> ...sigh!
9- gmb Settings/Library: add folder to search for new songs > /home/ego/Musica
10- library gets populated with my songs, but I've lost my work in tags, ratings, counts, etc...
11- quit gmb
12- gedit ~/.config/gmusicbrowser/gmbrc AT LAST:
