Saving grip's ripping output in a directory other than ogg

How do I specify a directory to save grip's output instead of its default ogg directory? Thanks.

I think the tab you want is Config -> mp3, and the path is defined in the "file format" box.

To confuse matters, Grip has separate paths for the ripped audio (normally *.wav) and the final encoded version (.ogg, .mp3 etc), and the paths are under different tabs under Config.

I reluctantly stopped using Grip some time after Debian stopped providing it, so apologies if I've got the location wrong - hopefully someone will be able to correct me if so.

Hi, Patsychomper,

Thanks very much for your advice. I only want to save the tracks in .wav format and haven't been able to use the command line to specify the destination device or directory. I notice that grip's GUI does not provide a select-all-tracks option, which would be a very handy feature.

I use grip on Fedora. The .wav output path is in the Config-Rip-Ripper tab on my version in the 'rip file format' field.

If you don't specify any tracks from a disk you're ripping, you get a popup prompt 'No tracks selected. Rip entire CD' (at least I do).

Thanks for telling me this obscure handy trick. It'll save me much time.
