Tips and Tricks / Re: MusicBee 3 with Wine and dual boot« on: November 06, 2019, 04:14:32 AM »
I've got a workaround for using MusicBee on Linux, but you'll need to install a virtual machine with a Windows system. With a few tweaks (on Mint Cinnamon, but probably works on other distros too) you can make the VM look like a standard application. I even got WiFi sync working. However, there are downsides like no global hotkeys from outside.
A recent update made MusicBee way smoother, so there's little to no difference in using it through the VM.
Yeah, this is no solution for the given problem. But as long as WINE won't run MusicBee well, I can live with that. If you want, I can write a guide.
You really don't want to use virtual machines for that. It's a pain in the ass no matter how much you automate or even if you use the best stacks like KVM. Big waste of resources too since there's no such thing as a lightweight windows vm, not even the images MS created just for that.
Changing the temp directory seems to work, at least for meHow to set a custom Temp folder
You can make MB use a custom temp folder instead of the default Windows Temp folder when your C drive doesn't have enough free space for a task you're about to perform. Add the following with the proper path into MusicBee3Settings.ini file.Code
Nice, that solved the problem for me too. Only one issue to go now! I wonder if an ENV for the artwork cache would also solve that problem (it's the resized artwork from internalcache/albumcovers)
