Fantastic! Actually I couldn't see any reason why it wouldn't since ripit is very similar to abcde. But I'm no programmer so thanks for the experiment.\julian67 wrote:I meant the abcded daemon runs as root, not when the regular user runs abcde from the terminal.
Yeah. This was something bothering me. All the rips, folders, files are owned by root so there's an extra step to chmod/chown. I unashamedly use foobar2000 on windoW$ XP to tag and organize (lately). It's really the best and easiest for me to use that I've found anywhere. So when I check the tags or rename files folders, I need write permissions. I will still have to be vigilant with the tags since freecddb can be a real mess sometimes. Foobar2000 is about the only reason I keep a windows machine around.
So you set it up like you described? An init script to run as your user? That would be ideal, I think.
I guess my next step is to figure out whether I can have a DVD-combo drive for dynamic playing in addition to the dedicated CD-ripit drive used by the daemon.
You define the drive in ripit's config so it should be easy enough to have it use one and ignore the other.
I didn't bother with an init script. I started ripit with
- Code: Select all
$ ripit & disown
