About

The Thunar Media Tags Plugin (thunar-media-tags-plugin) adds special features for media files to the Thunar File Manager.

Currently, these are:

  • a so-called bulk renamer, which allows users to rename multiple audio files at once, based on their tags (e.g. ID3 or OGG/Vorbis),
  • a special media file page for the file properties dialog, which displays detailed information about quality, length etc.,
  • and finally, an audio tag editor which is reachable from both, renamer and the properties page.

Usage

The renamer, which you can see in the above screenshot, is reachable through the Rename… context menu entry after selecting more than one file.

The tag editor can be found in the file properties dialog (Audio page).

Releases

Version 0.1

Subversion / Git

http://svn.xfce.org/svn/goodies/thunar-media-tags-plugin/

git://git.gezeiten.org/thunar-media-tags-plugin.git

Dependencies

  • Thunar (0.2.3svn-r20526 or above)
  • Thunar-VFS (0.2.3svn-r20526 or above), which is either part of your Thunar installation or has to be installed separately (e.g. on Debian/Ubuntu you will need libthunar-vfs-1-dev, on RedHat systems the package should be named thunar-vfs-1-devel or something similar).
  • Thunarx (0.2.3svn-r20526 or above), for which the same rules as for Thunar-VFS apply (just that the package is named libthunarx-1-dev or thunarx-1-devel).
  • C bindings of TagLib (1.4 or above)

Building and Installing

If you downloaded a source tarball from the download page, you can run

./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable prefix thunarx-1)

in order to configure the plugin. If you fetched the source from SVN, you have to use this command:

./autogen.sh --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable prefix thunarx-1)

After that you should be able to build and install the plugin, using the following commands (remember you have to be root for that!):

make && make install
