       juice.conf - juice(1) configuration file


       The  juice.conf  file is the main configuration file for juice(1) which
       is a playlist editor / frontend for mpg123 and other players.

       Every variable consists of two fields, an identifier field and a  value
       field. These two fields are seperated by one or more spaces or tabs and
       an equal sign. There  are  three  types  of  values:  strings,  boolean
       values,  and integers. Strings must be quoted (i.e. surrounded by "’s).
       Boolean values can be either True or False.

       Lines starting with a hash mark (‘‘#’’) and empty lines are ignored.

       You shouldn’t edit the configuration file manually either since all the
       options can be changed within juice anyway.

       If  you  do  decide to edit this file manually though, please ntoe that
       the program will automatically replace this file  with  one  containing
       all  the  default  settings if this one is corrupt. This means that all
       your nice comments will be gone if you don’t spell  the  variable  name
       correctly or forget the hash before the comment, etc.


       Here  is  an  example  taken from Juice 0.03c. In general you shouldn’t
       need to  ask  questions  about  the  configuration  file,  because  the
       configuration file is well commented by default.

       Global settings

              audiopath = "/"

       Default search path for audio files

              playlistpath = "/"

       Default search path for playlist files

              confirmdialogs = False

       Enable/disable  confirmation dialogs.  True enable confirmation dialogs
       and False disable them.

              playlisttype = "*.[Jj][Pp][Ll]"

       Wildcard for playlist files. Valid wildcards are "*?[]" each  with  the
       normal shell-like meaning.

              fadingtime = 50

       Time  to  fade in/out in milliseconds. This option is currently ignored
       due to some mixer-related problems.

              mpg123frontend = True

       Flag that determines whether a generic player should be used or  rather
       the mpg123-only frontend.  True enables the mpg123-only frontend, False
       enables the Generic player  frontend.  Please  note  that  the  generic
       frontend is quite buggy at the moment and should not be used.

              intersessionmemory = True

       Enable/disable intersession memory.  True = Enable, False = Disable.

              helpdialogs = True

       Enable/disable  help  dialogs.  I don’t know why you’d want to do this,
       but a friend of mine keeps insisting (: True = Enable False =  Disable.

              displaymode = 3

       Set  the  mode  in  which  tracks  will  be displayed in the browse and
       playlist dialogs. A value of 0 indicates that no  information  will  be
       displayed,  1  will  cause  juice  to use descript.ion(5) as a means of
       describing tracks, 2 will cause juice  to  use  ID3  tags  instead.  If
       displaymode  is  set to 3, descript.ion files will be scanned first and
       ID3 tags used as an alternative; 4 is just the opposite.

              displayformat = 1

       Set the format in which tracks will be  displayed  in  the  browse  and
       playlist  dialogs.  0  shows  tracks  as "Title - Artist (Album)", 1 as
       "Title - Artist", 2 as "Title (Album)" and 3 shows only the title.

              shortenmethod = 0

       This is the method that will be used to shorten the shown filenames  in
       the  dialogs.  0 will split the files in the middle, shorten each halve
       and insert a tilde (‘‘~’’) in the middle.  1  will  just  truncate  the
       track name.

       Generic player settings

              playername = "mpg123 -v -b 512"

       Command-line used when the generic player frontend is used.

              audiotype = "*.[Mm][Pp]3"

       Wildcard used to identify audio files. Valid wildcards are "*?[]"

       MPG123 settings

              mpg123name = "mpg123 -b 512 -R -"

       Command-line used when the mpg123-only player mode is selected.

       Mixer settings

              volume = 39

       Main volume (0-44)

              bass = 37

       Bass (0-44)

              treble = 37

       Treble (0-44)

              synth = 37

              ogain = 0

       Output gain (0-44)

              balance = 0

       Left/right channel balance (-22 to +22)
