I'm having issues with programs reading files in the wrong order, and also outputting in an undesirable order with utilities such as
I've tried some of the
LC_COLLATE options, but none of them fit the preference I seek, so I figured there must be something more I can do.
Examples of commands producing wrong order:
user@host: /home/user/Video $ mpv *.mkv
There are 150 files in /home/user/Video, and here are the first 12 a command from a program like
mpv *.mkv would read:
TVSeriesName - 01.mkv TVSeriesName - 02.mkv TVSeriesName - 03.mkv TVSeriesName - 04.mkv TVSeriesName - 05.mkv TVSeriesName - 06.mkv TVSeriesName - 07.mkv TVSeriesName - 08.mkv TVSeriesName - 09.mkv TVSeriesName - 10.mkv TVSeriesName - 100.mkv TVSeriesName - 101.mkv
It's reading 100 before it reads 11, even with leading zero.
Ideally, it should read them in the correct 1-150 order even without a leading zero.
What I want is to have a universal order in which files are read and sorted that resembles the default of the
ranger file manager.
.1-hiddendir/ .2-hiddendir/ .a-hiddendir/ .b-hiddendir/ .C-hiddendir/ .d-hiddendir/ .E-hiddendir/ 1-dir/ 2-dir/ A-dir/ b-dir/ c-dir/ D-dir/ .1-dotfile .2-dotfile .a-dotfile .b-dotfile .C-dotfile 1-file 2-file a-file B-file c-file
OS: Arch Linux, FS: ext4
What can I do with environment settings, or anything, in a Linux distribution to achieve this?
