Re: MP3 Playlists & my sanity

Although, does it not seem strange that: ls -l *.csv # for example Works fine. But when to add the "R" option it doesn't? i.e. ls -lR *.csv After all, the help for the "ls" and "dir" commands does say: -R, --recursive list subdirectories recursively You have to think like the shell when forecasting...

Re: MP3 Playlists & my sanity

One other insanity, when i do the command(S) below they ONLY find the m3u file in main (root) dir - i.e. not the one's in any of the sub-dirs - inc the Pink dir! I can't see this being related to the playlist issue but it is to my sanity. ls -lR *.m3u dir -lR *.m3u ls and dir can't do that, I think...

Re: Request for translations thread

mx-tweak/mx-tweak-gtk3 A few new translations are requested on Transifex . There are 4 new strings for mx-tweak . And 8 new strings for the new gtk3 variant: mx-tweak-gtk3 . There is commonality, so as soon as you update one, you'll find fewer to do in the other. -------------------------- Edit: Al...

Re: Request for translations thread

Thanks for asking. It used to matter, but it hasn't for some time. For example, you can translate "Name=MX Tools" as ... Name[es]=MX Herramientas Name=MX Herramientas Nombre[es]=MX Herramientas Nombre=MX Herramientas MX Herramientas All are acceptable. Essentially, anything before the "=" is ignored...

Re: Request for translations thread

Some new translations needed on Transifex . There is a new resource formatusb . Since there is some commonality with other resources, just 32 words in 10 strings are required for most up-to-date languages. Also, please supply a Name and Comment for this resource in mx-all-desktop-entries . Thank you!

Re: What are your favorite sports to watch - and why

No worries, cricket isn't even a sport . Russia's sports ministry has refused to include cricket on its register of officially recognised sports. The order was issued on 15 July - the day after England's dramatic Cricket World Cup final win over New Zealand. Among the sports officially recognised in...

Re: What are your favorite sports to watch - and why

Watch less and less as time goes on. As a teenager, very much a sports fan, live and die with the local teams, played all sports. Now not so much. Occasionally attend local uni football, semi-pro baseball, junior hockey. Like to orienteer, but do it badly. Do more listening on the radio than watch o...
