Re: TUTORIAL: File Sorting on the Raspberry Pi

MAGIC UNDO: In the very near future, I'll be posting my brand-new image viewing solution – with automatic natural sorting! It will be in the "Graphics, sound and multimedia" forum, the home of my gigantic FFmpeg / mpv tutorial . That already covers video and audio, so this new tutorial should compl...

Re: TUTORIAL: File Sorting on the Raspberry Pi

Wow, scruss! With blatantly over-the-top words like "robust, powerful and majestic", I thought it was obvious that I was joking! So let me spell it out: Though harmless, the "cat -n" and "n" are not serving any purpose in the command line. As you suggest, they can be removed. But you may not want to...

The variable n

My command line is so robust – so powerful – so majestic – that even if some guy in Canada erroneously strips out the important "start" feature, it still maintains its core functionality.

THAT is the purpose of the "n"!

Re: TUTORIAL: File Sorting on the Raspberry Pi

I guess the real issue is that we hope we can find a way to sort our files on the Raspberry in the same manner they are sorting in Windows. Maybe that's not possible. Big news! For image viewing, I figured out how to replicate the entire Microsoft Windows experience on the Raspberry Pi – complete w...

Re: TUTORIAL: File Sorting on the Raspberry Pi

by sticking a serial number on the front of the file name, that's not preserving the original file name at all … Also, now try using the feh options from the file manager. Without a shell script. Good luck there!] Someone dares to question the self-proclaimed King of File Sorting? I'm shocked! Seri...

Re: TUTORIAL: File Sorting on the Raspberry Pi

Re: TUTORIAL: File Sorting on the Raspberry Pi

Hi. We are a small non-profit that recently installed a dozen Raspberry PI 3 with the Raspbian OS and GPicView application. We have over 500,000 jpg images that are viewed for genealogical research and they appear out of sort order using the viewer. Is the sorting issue due to the Raspberry PI hard...

Re: GIANT UPDATE: Build FFmpeg and mpv – Automatically in 54 Minutes!

Apologies if you thought I was in any way criticising your brilliant work. I should have said "the script didn't work on my system because of previous attempts I had made to install FFmpeg which I had failed to fully remove from the system". This tutorial is excellent and if the instructions are fo...

Well, at least my Pi is booting now... But, it tells me the following: "Error mounting settings partition. Persistent settings partition seems corrupt. Reformat? Yes/No" I guess it didn't work for me because my issue is from 2015 and has since lived on different Pis. OH GEE, AN ERROR – WHAT A SURPR...

Thanks for admitting you made a false assumption!

I can't say I'm surprised by any of this, however:

It's inevitable that a high-quality tutorial like mine is going to attract a variety of unprovoked and baseless attacks.

That's the power of jealousy.
