Re: [Banshee-List] Documentation

Bertrand, thanks for the questions in the email, that's exactly the kind of information I'm looking for.

I've written a blog post with a call for more information just like that:

So if you have any ideas about what should be in a help file, or have seen good howto's on the 'net, let me know.   Anyone who wants to help is more than welcome, don't feel like you have to know Docbook or Mallard to write docs!

Sounds great indeed !

1/ How to get banshee to recognize my usb mass storage device as a music

A description is available here :

2/ How can I customize my library's directory structure and file names :
the /apps/banshee-1/library/file_pattern and folder_pattern gconf keys
Their description is in the source :

3/ How can I unsubscribe from a Podcast : Right click on it in the

And I guess you already know about the items there :

Anyway, those are just random suggestions, so feel free to do whatever
with them. ;)
