Step by Step
Authored by: Xeo on Nov 19, '04 02:13:28PM

Every couple of months I get a new e-mail in my box from someone who is stuck somewhere along the way. Here is my stock reply to these people and in almost every case, it has been enough to get it working for them. I hope this can help others in the future.

1) Download the script to your home directory
2) Unzip it (with Stuffit Expander)
3) Open Terminal
4) Make sure the script is executable by running "chmod 755 gb-deletedupes.sh"
5) Type "./gb-deletedupes.sh" and hit enter. If it is set up correctly, it will show you the various options and what they mean. If it is not working, you will get an error like "file not found" or "command not found" or something similar.
6) Now type "./gb-deletedupes.sh -b " but don't hit return, and note the space at the end, and the space between the command and the -b. I used -b in this example, but use whatever option is appropriate. The choices are -b -g and -j.
7) In the Finder, open the folder that contains the Soundtrack Loops folder, so if Soundtrack Loops is in your home directory, open your home directory, or if soundtrack loops is in /Library/Application Support/whatever then open that folder.
8) Drag the Soundtrack Loops folder onto Terminal, it will fill in the rest of the command for you.
9) Now just hit return in terminal and it will execute. If everything looks OK, it will prompt you to say yes or no to continue, and just type Y (that is a capital Y... it matters) then return to continue. It should delete the files at that point.

Also, I have been considering updating the script and lists with the new Jam Packs but have not gotten around to doing it yet.
