The forum mangled my post. At the end of point 1, it should be:
"the box replaced my input with a [ 0 ] and sets the cursor to the left"

It seems "[ 0 ]" without the spaces gets processed as a numbered list item...

Sorry for triple-posting: Any plans to add UTF-8 log writing?

Thanks I love this program. I use it a lot to process many rips.

It's alive!  :)

Thanks, after tinkering a bit with wine and playonlinux I got CUETools working with no problems. Fortunately I had my old windows config from the days of winXP floating around with all my presets and everything...

Before this I was running it with mono on linux, but that way only works with WAV files, now I can save an extra step of transcoding and some tagging... and verifying in one step is much easier.

edit: I just tested it out:

- install wine (any version really, it's been working for me for several years, I'm currently using 3.0rc6)
- install wine-mono (or whatever it is called on your distribution)
- create a new win32 prefix (WINEARCH=win32)
- install dotnet20sp2 using winetricks. It shows a couple of errors (i.e. "mono not installed", even though it is), but the process finishes fine
- install vcrun2008
- copy the CUETools folder to your prefix/drive_c/Program Files/
- launch CUETools.exe with WINEPREFIX set to your prefix

It takes a while to launch, but it does launch fine. The only problem I had was that configuring it as I wanted crashed on some steps.
What I did was configure it as I want on a windows machine, then copy the settings.txt to my linux one.
is there any benefit to install wine-mono in first place when dotnet20sp2 gets installed right afterwards? afaik, mono is a replacement for dotnet and gets uninstalled by winetricks when you attempt to install dotnet anyways.

A word of warning to those using CUETools 2.1.6 on linux (WINE): Do not use the libFLAC decoder! For some reason, it doesn't produce valid output. The audio checksum differs on every decoding attempt (verify/encode), and of course no accurateRip/CTDB match is possible.
i just tested and split an accurate flac image of mine with libflac and with cuetools encoder under wine 3.0 rc5.

the result is still accurate, but the bitrate of the libflac encoded files are higher by 2 bits and the encoder is also much faster!

which version of wine do you use? have you tried a new prefix?

sanskrit44, did you test using the libFLAC decoder? (I haven't tested myself, just looking for more information)

no, i have tested the encoders. no differences between libflac and cuetools on my side. btw it was a wav image that i had split up. my mistake.

ok, i have tested again (flac image this time) and set libflac encoder + decoder and the result is still accurate.

Do you know where I find this settings.txt file? I have CUETools running in an XP VM. I would love to not have to use a VM to run CUETools, it's the only WIndows program I use. Thanks!

Wow, I've been running CUETools 2.1.5 in kvm (Linux VM) with XP for years. Running CUETools 2.1.6 under wine 3.0 on the same system is 7.5x faster (6 seconds vs 45 seconds) for a verify on the same album. Fortunately I did not encounter any crashes using wine, all the config screens worked fine. The font size is microscopically small on my 4K monitor though.

I was wondering if there is any possibility to add a "blank/unknown" option for metadata, or simply a button to erase all the info.

I often encounter some singles that don't have the right information in the DB, but CUEripper will auto-select the first result. Then, I have to remove all the fields one by one (I do just override some, but there are some of the fields I never manually fill in, like barcode, so I still need to delete them).

Thanks!
