Can you suggest the best method to increase the number of analog/V* settings
in the GXSM preferences.
I sometimes have two different hardware setups.
I am thinking of making a different hardware profile, or simply increasing the
number of possible analog/V settings.
I don't know exactly where those are in the code, but if you pointed towards
the file then I am capable of making the changes myself.
If making a different hardware profile seems like a nicer solution, how does
one go about making a different hardware profile?
yes I could. But for a different instrument I would really recommend a 2nd set
of preferences! One set is meant to be for one instrument setup.
Two options I recommend:
a) may be the simplest: Preferences are tied to the user account, so just make
a new user for the other instruments and reconfigure. Then log on to the
corresponding user for each instrument.
b) same user, etc. -- you can do preferences backup/restore simply via the
gconf-tool like this:
Backup to file GXSM-preferences-A:
gconftool-2 --dump /apps/gxsm2 > GXSM-preferences-A
Restore from this file again:
gconftool-2 --load GXSM-preferences-A
So could store a preferences set for each instrument and restore before
However, this will restore everything.
c) adding more V* is possible, but you would need to expand a few fixed size
arrays and indices + all the gconf/defaults/storage handing also.
hope this helps
Thanks. Yeah, I will likely go with the alternate user route. That way I do
not need to remember so much. Thanks for the reply.
