Move gPodder folder

Postby gibbs1984 on Wed Nov 28, 2012 5:18 pm

I really like the gPodder app but it places the gPodder folder in /home but I like to keep this as clean as possible so is there a way to move this folder to say Documents and still use it from there.

I've tried to move the folder but when I go back to the app it doesn't see any of my settings/downloads etc.

How to change the destination folder from its default is described here:

Yeah I have seen that Wiki but that seems to relate to gPodder 2.x.x whereas I'm on 3.2.0 and from what I can find out it looks like they removed the .config file in 3.x.x where I could have changed these settings, can't see any options anywhere.

Also, that only seems to change the Downloads sections but how do you move the settings aswell?

After looking at the website for gPodder it would seem that there have been some version changes, as you pointed out. Basically I would think that you need to re-specify a path statement to point the download destination to wherever you want it.
You might get more useful information if you ask your question on #gpodder on irc.freenode.net, the gPodder Wiki or the gPodder mailing list.
Good luck.

Thanks for your reply :)

I did visit their website but couldn't find a forum but I'll try the other methods you suggested, thanks :)
