That is not what Zaerc meant, re-read his comment.
He is not saying move your files to the core HDD, he is saying move them to the correct folder on your NTFS drive.
Have you read what is meant by - use LMCE folder structure? It means that there is a set folder structure that LMCE uses to store all its media. I won't explain why, you can find that easily enough on the wiki, except to say it allows you to transparently combine all your media from different sources in different MDs as one single simple folder structure.
LMCE 0710 can happily mount and read/write NTFS, so don't worry about that.
You will find that as you didn't already have the correct LMCE folder structure on your NTFS HDD, LMCE has now created one for you:
LMCE will only look in those last folders for its media and ignore anything else on the HDD. There are other ways of doing this in LMCE - don't use them! This is the best way of doing it.
Simply move your video files under public|video, audio files under public|audio, and so on.
Either wait for LMCE scan them itself, or manually trigger a scan in the admin console.
PS - now you have copied at least some of your media to the core HDD, they will be in the media database, and so when you move them to the correct location, you will end up with duplicate media. You need to use the admin web site, Media File Sync menu - find the ones on the core and delete them using the web site (NOT KDE) to ensure that you clean up the database at the same time.
Yeah, Aureka, Wounderbaum, tears of joy
And he went out of the darkness and into the light
Thanks for good teaching Zaerc and colinjones
Now I understand how LMCE is using the file structure. I see now that I have read about this in the Wike earlier, but I didn't connect the dots properly.... cause this is a new way of looking at file managing for me I guess! Thanks again for for pointing this out to me
By the way, think I have some other folder issue that I don't quite understand. It's presumable connected to the root access in KDE; I am not able to create folders under root/usr
(due to installing java to display the web pages properly). Neither can I store my window folder setting, after changing the layout under View Properties
in Dolpin. Further I am also denied to copy files(a .jpg screenprint) from Home
to a USB thumb drive. On the Properties for the USB drive, I see that Group and Others, only have Can View Content
. If I try to change this to include Modify Content
I get Access denied...
After searching the forum I found a topic that Zaerc wrote as an replay: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=2025.0
The root password is disabeled. Use "sudo" from a normal user account to do things as root.
But I don't see if this can help me with my folders issue in KDE....
