Bug Description

As suggested by nachtigall on the forums:

For those of us that both gig out with Mixxx and test/develop it, it would be handy to have a --configPath command-line parameter (that defaulted to ~/.mixxx as usual if not specified) so we can easily keep the profiles separate without having to copy & rename directories every time. This would be especially handy for storing the profile on removable media.

Hi Jens,
did you make any progress in this? If not, I would like to start working on this issue.
Cheers Daniel

Hi Daniel,

I think I can have it finished by the end of next week. It is more
complicated than I first thought.

I hope that isn't too much of a pity for you, but certainly there are
many more open issues to start workin with ;-)

Best,
jens

Sorry, realistically I cannot make this happen in due time. Please

judgement about my availabe time earlier.

I am happy to test and review the code if you have somthing.

jens

A small bug. Controllers should be loaded from resource path, not settingsPath
