Some parts of GCfilms could be updated without updating the whole software. This page describes how this should be done.
The update should be launched with a user that have enough rights to modify files where GCfilms have been installed. On a Unix system, the root user may perform that.
As the process will use some files that are stored on the Internet, a working connection is obviously required.
What is updated
The update won't change anything in the program itself. It will only impact some components. They are listed below:
- Websites plugins
- Import plugins
- Export plugins
The websites plugins are used to search the information concerning a movie. There are more information about the import and export plugins on the page about conversions.
It could only be launched from command line. It is done by the gcfilms main executable with the -u option (or --update).
The user will be prompted for a proxy. If there are none (or if you have no idea about what that means), just press Enter.
The default behaviour is to find all the available updates. But it is possible to specify to look only for some of them. There are some options for that using in a short and a long form.
- -l or --lang: Translations
- -w or --website: Websites plugins
- -i or --import: Import plugins
- -e or --export: Export plugins
