I’d love to switch to Mylio to manage my personal media. Is it possible to install on Linux without a GUI? Thank you
No. There are multiple threads here already about this - just search for “headless”.
Main thread on that topic:
Leaving Mylio because of their obvious choice to ignore their technically capable user base.
while I manually clean up the 100,000 duplicate images that were created…
if only they had enough sense to decouple library/database processes from GPU bound processes to provide a NAS / container option.
Guess i’m going back to Apple or Google.
While I would really love a headless version of Mylio, I don’t see how Apple or Google are offering this at the moment… do they?
true, perhaps i’m a little bitter… particularly about the situation with my personal data and the significant amount of duplication the software made.
a headless linux offering would likely also require the company to be more forthcoming with technical documentation than they’ve ever been willing to do in the past.
i ran some commands suggested by support, since emailing support back and forth is the only option and self-help with proper documentation of technical functionality is not….
Yes sorry to hear about your many duplicates. The Mylio de-dup tool has been promised before, I will believe when I’ll see it! In the meantime, VisiPics works really well for most cases.
Compared to many open source software I use, Mylio certainly feels more closed… but then it is proprietary software, and the fact that their staff is increasingly showing how to use the console here is a nice touch, which you don’t get from bigger corporations (those you mentioned + Adobe). Not a bad balance overall – I also would love more details of how to use the console fully, but understand it’s tricky to share these when they may change at any time…
help in the console. If there is any command there that looks interesting and you want more info on (more than what’s in the help), let me know!
I wouldn’t recommend just trying every command on your real photos to see what they do, but if you have a test device that you can create a separate free account on with some test pics, go for it.
They are unsupported because we don’t test them or trying to maintain them release-over-release. But if something seems like it could help you, I’ll try and help you make it work.
Wow. That’s excellent nerd-sniping here… must resist the temptation to try all these…
Seriously though, thank you for your willingness to solve issues and find workarounds, even though you’re a small team! Appreciated
I love it! It happens to me sooooo often!
