Hi
I'm trying to create a skin myself. (.mit) I wonder if we should put all the icons in the skin? Or is it enough to change what I want? Thanks. ☺

You mean theme. Check the OP in development thread, there's a theme template you can analyze and edit accordingly to your wishes.

Does MiX have any way to handle djvu files, or should this be a feature request? Thanks.

Hello,
1) How to use RegEx in AutoTasks ?
2) Would the tasks start if MiXplorer is not running (after a reboot) ?

Thank you VM !

First of all where are you attempting to create a symlink. From where, to where? There are some system level restrictions that may be coming into play.

It sounds like you're saying that you cannot get media off of your internal SD card, but I'm not certain that's what you mean.

It would help to know more specific details such as, what type of file is being copied or moved? from which location? to which other location? Additionally, details about the device and the SD cards would help. but let's start by clarifying the task you are trying to perform. If this is just a matter of usage and settings we should be able to figure it out. If it is a bug then a bug report can be submitted.

[EDIT ]D'oh! I did not realize that question was part of the symlink discussion. @R!ffRaff, if you quote the posts you are replying to then such confusion can be avoided. It can also be avoided if I pay closer attention.

I would like to create a symlink from the download folder to the update folder (lineage)
But I can not create a symlink in any folder and more than the name and path can be specified in the mixplorer.

By download folder, I would suspect you are speaking of /sdcard/Download. That path is a mapped path as a non Linux file system and therefore does not support features such as Symlinks. You need to create the symlink in the source file location, which I would guess (going off the top of my head) to be something like /data/media/0/Download.

You're not going to be able to do that. That's a system level restriction that you can't get around.

There are ways to create working hard links, but that would only work file to file, not directory to directory.

You can create symlinks pretty much anywhere else in /data but /sdcard (in all of its forms) won't work. You could create the symlinks in /data/media/0 but, although an entry for them would appear under sdcard, it would be inaccessible. The only way to successfully access those symlinks would be via /data/media/0

The reasons for this (in extremely simplified terms) is that /sdcard is emulating a fat32 file system, even though the underlying system is ext4 or f2fs (depending on device/ROM). fat32 doesn't support symlinks.
