Description

Now that users can enter plugin names as arguments to the new audtool option plugin-enable, would you consider adding the proper 1-word name used there in the Settings.Plugins menus, say in parenthesis after the descriptive name? This would be helpful in knowing the proper parameter value when en/dis-abling plugins in audtool.

Thanks,

Jim

History

#1 Updated by John Lindgren over 4 years ago

Yes, this is a good idea.

#2 Updated by Thomas Lange over 4 years ago

I think a new command which lists all available plugins would be better.

  • It does not clutter the GUI
  • Power users can get the information faster
  • "Normal" users do not care what plugin name is used internally

So, guess I'm officially an "abnormal abUser" eh? LOL :D Sure, a sep. cmd. would be just as good for me, I fugureed adding it the menu would be easier and cleaner to do, but I just wanted to try out the new audtool feature you just added, but I don't (and others won't) know what the valid argument names are for most of the plugins.

ls -R /usr/lib/audacious also works.

It actually says that in the manpage ...

The more I think a/b this, the more I'm with Thomas - Since the need for this will be for quick lookup of the proper "names" to be used in the new audtool parameter (when using audtool), I believe there needs to be an audtool command to list the plugins showing their category, description, and "basename", making it easy to specify the proper argument value for plugin-enable.

Thanks,

Jim

I'm still not sure how often this would be used, or why we need to write a new audtool command when the "ls" command I gave above will show exactly the same information.

Ok, never mind, I haven't had a need for it anyway, if so, will just use your ls command. If/since no one else has ask for this, you can cancel this req.

Regards,

Jim
