gPodder Bug Tracker – Bug 1704
upgrade problems after installation of version 3.2 (ubuntu 12.10)
Last modified: 2012-11-03 19:13:40 GMT
after upgrading ubuntu from 12.04 to 12.10 also gpodder was upgraded (from 2.x to version 3.2). While the transfer of directories and config via gpodder-migrate2tres worked well in general, two things now do not work as before (also in reference to the manual):
- setting a different download directory via variable GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR
- usage of 'cmd_download_complete' in general, or at least unclear how to put this to the changed config file structure
The support for GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR was re-added in gPodder 3.3.0. You can use the gPodder Ubuntu PPA to get the latest version, see http://gpodder.org/downloads
Fixed in Git: http://gpodder.org/commit/15e8137d

I immediately added the ppa and after setting the variable the download was put in the correct seperate directory.
(Unfortunately) I had listed a second topic in here which is about the usage of the cmd_download_complete: do you have a fast fix available there as well?

This has been replaced by the (more powerful IMHO) extension mechanism.
You can write an extension and implement the on_episode_downloaded() hook. Some example extensions that have an on_episode_downloaded() hook:
% git grep on_episode_downloaded share/gpodder/extensions/ | cut -d: -f1
It might actually be that one of these extensions implement what you have previously done with the cmd_download_complete feature. If not, and you implement a new extension script (you can place it in ~/gPodder/Extensions/ - see the README file for details), feel free to submit it.

this might be true - however I am no Python expert (so far). I will try my best
what would you like to do after the download is completed? Maybe we could point you to the right extension or maybe we could provide a new one (depends on your use case)
Hi Bernd (mit Bezug zu comment 5)

I want to run (like described in the user manual) the time stretch script. At the end it should be rather simple (and as I would not need to much logging this should be the relevant part)
if [ "$ext" == "mp3" ]; then
Any hint is welcome :-)
