tonight i spent some time creating a playlist on my duet controller, and saved it called "nye party"

i upgraded to 7.3.1 to get "party mode"

my playlist has disappeared, i've checked the location on my linux box, and an older playlist is there "radiohead.m3u".

I created a new playlist and saved it as "9999". I can see this on my controller, and through the squeezecenter webpage, but it is not in my playlists folder.

if i do a "find / -name *9999*" it finds nothing.
if i do a "find / -name *3u" it finds my old radiohead playlist and nothing else.

i am running ubuntu

where are the playlists saved?

If you go to settings and look at the basic settings tab (first one) it shows what directory your playlists are saved to.

thankyou, but mine aren't saving to there.

only my old radiohead playlist is in that directory.

Make sure that the playlist dir is writable by the squeezecenter user. If it's not, I think the playlist is only saved in the database and will be lost anytime you do a rescan.

Been there, more than once in the past.
There really should be some warning when you save your playlist that the
playlist dir isn't writable...

Good idea. Also it would be good to have a similar warning when specifying the playlist directory in SC's Settings, even though that would amount to a "false positive" for people who create playlists outside of SC.
