To launch Rack from the command line, cd into Rack’s directory, and run ./Rack .
-d : Enables development mode
-g <path> : Sets Rack’s global directory
-l <path> : Sets Rack’s local directory
but can someone explain to an illiterate/noob how it is done?
how do I start the command line? what do I need to type there?
I think now that V1 is gettting closer it will be more imprtant to have
a way to seperate a V0.6.2 install and a V1 install and start them with different folders for plugins
but not every user will undersand how it can be done.
would be cool if someone can make a little howto
(I myself don’t understand how it is done, I just hit the icon on my desktop )
You are asking dos command basics here.
Really look at the link to the google search, and watch a video that explains how to use the command line.
With basic command for example: cd (current directory) , list, dir, help.
From there you will learn the basics on how to move around through the folders and files etc
After that comes the rest.
I know some most dos commands from my old dos days,
and the question is not about me and dos basics, but about VCV basics
this doesn’t need the command line, but how to fill the target field.
I would like to have a simple as possible handout for new users and noobs,
that now start with v0.6.2 and then i a few weeks will change to V1 and maybe
get confused by an ovewritten global folder or some trouble like this, when they install V1.
Doing this is imho customer service and will pay off in the long run.
and yes that needs explanations of even the most basic uses imho.
I thought some of the more skilled users could do an easy to understand introduction to this.
or maybe a youtube video on how to do it for a parallel install of v06.2 and v1,
because this is what many users might want to do and to know how to imho
Yeah you can and that’s probably better for this user; the difference is do you keep the process attached in the terminal. (If you do the direct execution of the bundle content you can see stdout, attach a debugger, and stuff like that too which was why it was in my fingers!).
you’re right, sorry
now with the correct line: open /Applications/Rack.app --args -u blah
Rack don’t open directly, i have first the little window: rack quit…ignore/signal/restart (restart works…) and this line in the terminal: LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810 for the file /Applications/Rack.app.
and sorry if i’m dumb, but in all cases how to choose a different folder for autosave, plugins …do i need to add a path in this line command ?
