Allow making a playlist read-only
August 24, 2016
Add a way to lock a playlist in order to prevent it from being edited or deleted
When people not used to Audacious use your Audacious setup, it usually ends with missing songs, or unwanted extra songs in the playlist, and sometimes even missing playlist itself.
It would be nice to be able to lock playlists to avoid that, for example by adding an item in the context menu on the playlist. Thus one could have locked playlists, and still keep an unlocked playlist to let people add songs and listen to them, without destroying your own playlists.
- Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
Almost but not quite a duplicate of #190.
As you say, "almost but not quite"
Protecting from closing is OK, but protecting from editing is needed as well.
Anyway, I can't find this optional dialog you were talking about...
How can I activate it?
If you don't see a confirmation dialog on deleting a playlist, you probably clicked "don't show this again" at some point in the past. Look for a line reading
~/.config/audacious/config and delete that line.
