Thunar media-tags-plugin (Gentoo)

Does anyone know how to add custom Formats to the thunar-media-tag-plugin, more specifically I want to add:

Artist - Album - Title {year}.***

I've been unable to find any config files or solutions through searching thus far.

edit:If anyone knows a custom script I can use instead that would work also.

Thanks in advance!

for anyone else looking for an answer to this, here is what I did.

utilizing eyeD3, awk and sed

echo "Change values first!!!"
#IFS=$(echo -en "\n\b")
#for ino in $( ls ); do
#    art=$(pwd | rev | awk -F'[/-]' '{ printf "%s\n", $5 }' | rev | sed -e 's/^ *//g;s/ *$//g')
#    alb=$(pwd | rev | awk -F'[/-]' '{ printf "%s - %s\n", $1, $2 }' | rev | sed -e 's/^ *//g;s/ *$//g')
#    ttl=$(echo $ino | awk -F" - " '{ printf "%s\n", $2 }' | awk -F'.' '{print $1}' | sed -e 's/^ *//g;s/ *$//g')
#    trk=$(echo $ino | awk '{ printf "%s\n", $1 }' | sed -e 's/^ *//g;s/ *$//g')
#    yer=$(pwd | rev | awk -F'[/-]' '{ printf "%s\n", $2 }' | rev | sed -e 's/^ *//g;s/ *$//g' )
#    yer="2006"
#    eyeD3 --to-v2.4 -a $art -A $alb -t $ttl -n $trk -Y $yer $ino
#    eyeD3 --rename="%A - %a - %t {2006}" $ino
run this script in the folder where the music is. It grabs the info from the folders/filenames, corrects the id3 and then renames the files using this new format. enjoy!


format, gentoo, thunar
