I have decided to work for a while in pure text-mode and not using GUI.
Therefore, I use virtual terminal in my Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) which accessible easily with pressing ‘CTRL+ALT+F(X)’, X could be 1 to 6.
If you press ‘CTRL+ALT+F7’ you will back to GUI again.
To make it short, I wanted to make a playlist (.m3u) to play my favorite songs in Mpg123 player.
At first it looked though but after thinking I found a solution. To be exact I use the following commands.
$ cd /home/kixz/Music
$ pwd >> playlist.m3u
$ ls >> playlist.m3u
$ nano playlist.m3u
Then I edit the playlist and add the path before each file name.
Description of procedure.
1- I put the current path (which is my Music folder) to a file (playlist.m3u). Generally, m3u file is text file and you can open it with text editor.
2- I redirect the file names to playlist file.
3- Finally, I edit the file and remove the file names which I do not want to listen and add the path before the names of songs which I want to listen.
Easy, right ??!
