Change file localation

Asked by Thomas Bohn on 2013-04-02

I noticed that Pasaffe uses a fixed location for its database, even though this might be useful for people who are not familiar with such a software it also makes it difficult to use.

I have my database file in my Dropbox so that I can use it on my phone, on my tablet and currently on my MacBook. And I'm looking for a solution to continue to use my psafe3 database on Ubuntu/Linux in the future.

in there a way other than creating a symlink or was this a design decision from the beginning?

TIA

Thomas

It's a design decision to not have it configurable in the GUI. It can be changed in gsettings though.

If you want to change the database location, copy it to the new place you want it, and change it using dconf-editor under net.launchpad.pasaffe.database-path

I also use Dropbox to sync my database, and I can sync the Pasaffe's database with a shortcut.

The app stores the database at the following address: ~/.local/share/pasaffe/pasaffe.psafe3.

Change the database to the Dropbox, and in his place you can use the shortcut.

Observations:

1) The shortcut should be described as follows: "pasaffe.psafe3". Otherwise, it will be ignored by the Pasaffe;

2) On Dropbox, the file will also should be named as "pasaffe.psafe3". Otherwise, the app can display errors.

Can you help with this problem?
