I have a music folder, and I put all my musics to it. When new music is added, I have to "re-import" my music folder for the musics to get added.
Would be great if Rhythmbox monitored my music folder for new files and automatically added them.
EDIT : There is a way to tell Rhythmbox to do it on the Settings menu - So the complete idea - Either do it by default or at the first run, when asking for the music library folder, have a checkbox for this feature.
you can get this by checking the 'watch for new files in library' option under Edition > Preferences > Music.
Before you do that, make sure you don't have a shortcut (symlink) to your music folder somewhere. If you do, you'll have to delete the shortcut, else it's going to produce duplicate entries of all files in your library.
This doesn't seem to reflect the full problem, only adding new music. Because of directory & tag changes I have duplicate entries, so the update need to remove entries which no longer exist also. So what it really needs is an amalgamation of the above.
Ask for the Library: option to rescan and/or remove duplicates or invalid links.
The setting box is only to add new entries.Ver 0.11.6
