How to make a hidden file visible


I have FC-5 and use KDE.

I changed the encoder in the "grip" ripper. For that encoder it rips to hidden files. I know there there because I did a search and found the files and played them. Is there a way to globally make hidden files visible?

How do you make an individual hidden file visible?

Thanks,

royeo

What do you mean "rips to hidden files"? I've never seen that, not unless the file path is set up to make them hidden (files become hidden when they start with a period).

But you can tell grip to place the files in whatever location and in whatever format you specify. In the 'config > rip > rip file format' space, put something like this:

/home/david/music/%A-%d-%t-%n.wav

and it will rip the tracks to an artist-title-track#-track.wav file in /home/david/music.

You can do the same thing for the final compressed files in the encode file format box.
