Description
-----------

EasyTAG is a utility for viewing and editing tags for MP3, MP2, FLAC, Ogg
Vorbis, Speex and Opus, MP4/AAC, MusePack, Monkey's Audio and WavPack files.
Its simple and nice GTK+ interface makes tagging easier under GNU/Linux or
Windows.

* can edit more tag fields : Title, Artist, Album, Disc Album, Year, Track
  Number, Genre, Comment, Composer, Original Artist/Performer, Copyright, URL
  and Encoder name
* auto tagging: parse filename and directory to complete automatically the
  fields (using masks)
* ability to rename files and directories from the tag (using masks) or by
  loading a text file
* process selected files of the selected directory
* ability to browse subdirectories
* recursion for tagging, removing, renaming, saving…
* can set a field (artist, title, …) to all other selected files
* read file header information (bitrate, time, …) and display them
* auto completion of the date if a partial is entered
* undo and redo last changes
* ability to process fields of tag and filename (convert letters into
  upper case, lower case, …)
* ability to open a directory or a file with an external program
* CDDB support for manual or automatic search
* a tree based browser or a view by Artist & Album
* a list to select files
* a playlist generator window

  Nautilus context menu
* Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French,
  German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Romanian, Russian,
  Spanish, Swedish and Ukrainian translation languages

### Compilation instructions

See INSTALL.

When running, if you get the following warning about the EasyTAG settings
schema that is not installed:

(easytag:19122): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gnome.EasyTAG' is not installed

make sure that the GSettings schema and enums files can be found somewhere in
$XDG_DATA_DIRS/glib-2.0/schemas (for example /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas) and
that the schema cache has been updated with glib-compile-schemas.

There are two files to copy to the schema path, and the glib-compile-schemas
command must run on the directories which have been updated. Example commands
follow:

sudo cp org.gnome.EasyTAG.enums.xml /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
sudo cp data/org.gnome.EasyTAG.gschema.xml /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

If uninstalling, the files should be removed and the schema cache updated.
