GNU Solfege is written so that it can easily be extended, even if you do not know any computer programming. The steps are:
Create a lesson file and save it it in the first directory listed when you select from the menu. Create the directory if it does not exist.
Selectonce again to see the file show up in the list.
Click the link to your lesson file and enjoy!
To get started, you can copy one of the lesson files included in GNU
Solfege. The lesson files are located in the
exercises/standard/lesson-files subdirectory of
the installation directory. You can find the installation directory by
selecting from the
menu. It is important to store the lesson files you
create in the directory intended for user created lesson files, and not in the
applications directory. This because all files in the installation directory
may be removed while upgrading the program.
If you create many lesson files, you might want to group them together
in a separate subdirectory and attach them to a front page file. This way you
have a set of files in a subdirectory that you can easily distribute to other students. So create a new directory side by side the
directory you found by selecting
earlier this article. Your files might be structured like this:
myfiles/myfrontpage.txt myfiles/lesson-files/chords-1 myfiles/lesson-files/chords-2
To create a new front page file, you should selectfrom the menu, and then click on the toolbar of the dialog that pops up.
