referring to a folder on a non-boot disk


    Nov 17 2006 | 1:27 pm
    I'm using path -> thispatcher -> tosymbol -> prepend prefix ->
    ubumenu to refer to a folder on my iPod. The path is OK, but ubumenu
    it looks like it doesn't understand the drivename. How do I refer to
    a folder on a non-boot/Max disk?
    Best,

      Did you remember to check the 'Auto-populate ubumenu' option in the
      ubumenu inspector?

      Hi Jakob,
      That's not it, I think. I get an error in the status window telling
      me the path is wrong. But it's not.
      Best,

      On OS X, try some variant of "/Volumes/diskname/path" to get the actual mount point? Might need the boot disk name in front of it.

      I came often enough across things like that, in the end Max was right
      and I was wrong...
      How do you get the path? I get it usually with dropfile or opendialog...
      the clip below is in my clippings folder...
      I just can say I never had a problem because a drive wasn't the boot
      drive...
      Only if you need the correct Unix name you have to be carefull,
      conformpath has not yet the unix-style implemented. I know it was on the
      to-do list of cycling, but didn't make it into the actual object...
