@all who care...

I like the idea of a set library. I often have too many different versions of the same column throughout old and new libraries...(they multiply worse than rabbits), having one column dedicated throughout the system would be great. Especially when I do a copy to from one library to another and the data is on different columns.

Only for information:

After switching to a new library, and configuring the GetFileName (0.0.12) plugin, I must restart calibre, otherwise it does not work.

Thank you, @AnselmD, I'm aware of it and I'm trying to solve it.

Docs for GetFileName plugin

Hi folks -- first off, thanks for this plugin, and I wish I'd discovered it before yesterday; I have a large library and it would have been lovely to keep the original filenames for all those books!

After reviewing the plugin and starting to configure it, I realized I might be able to help folks who, like me, had a few questions around details of the process.

As I worked through config, and ensuring the plugin worked, I wrote up a doc in Word and uploaded it to my Google Drive for review:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6...203aHpEZ3dkbnM

(Let me know if you have issues seeing it; it should be set to View for Anyone, and I did test for such on a non-logged in browser.)

This is written against the 0.0.12 version of the plugin, for future reference.

I'm more than open to edits in the next little while, as well as putting it somewhere else more appropriate. I'm also open to putting a FOSS license on it so people can take over updating it, if so moved -- since I can't own/update this doc long-term.

In the meantime, I'm happy to take corrections/edits/improvements to content, although I'd like to avoid major changes to formatting until I have a more permanent home.

I prefer to do it in one batch without making any interaction. if something goes wrong, I am prepared to do it again. I am now able to do it with calibre command line tool, see:

Code:
calibredb add --help
With closed GUI, setting environment variable cal_lib to the new and empty library, using Ubuntu (with ext4) I am importing the epub books:

Code:
calibredb add -r -d --dont-notify-gui --library-path=$cal_lib .


Using the command line tool is important to finish in a reasonable time!
Additional I used some performance improvements during the import:

Setting the database metadata.db to RAM Disk. Setting the Journalling Mode of Sqlite for the time of the import to Write-Ahead Logging (with ext4).

Importing 106000 epub books (with and without images) of:

Mirroring How-To - Gutenberg
http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Gutenb...rroring_How-To

in less than 16 hours. This includes generating al opf backup files. So there is no need to call calibredb backup_metadata after the import.

Aside of some small changes for switching libraries, that I'll try to publish on weekend, no.

I cannot configure the plugin, GUI is very small and buggy, calibre 3.6 here.

HHi, I'm a bit late to the party, and was just wondering if this plugin was still being developed? I've been experiencing problems with even configuring it.

Sorry, out of this a bit. I'm going to upload the last version with my best effort for getting the directory (there are still some glitches that I'm not able to remove without a lot of rewriting).

Which are the problems? About development, it's finished aside some changes for trying to solve some sporadic mistakes getting directory.

@Terisa de Morgan - I'm not sure of the status of the issue relating to where configuration data should be stored (per library or in a configuration file)- as per the exchange you had with Kovid starting about post #196.

My understanding is that it's currently per library, I use different custom columns for different libraries - including none.

I wondered if something could be added to the configuration settings dialogue that would force a restart (as happens for some Look and Feel settings) and whether that would resolve the issue.

That doesn't seem to onerous to me. For me at least, the GFN settings are much more 'set-and-forget' than some of the L&F settings (e.g User Interface Layout - Narrow or Wide).

BR

But it's only happened since I tried installing this plugin.
