Bug Description

I would like to see an option in library preferences to not show/load itunes and traktor libraries in the sidebar, or even trying to connect to these in the first place.

I have both programs installed, but manage playlists for mixxx separately, and all three libraries contain always exactly same songs as my mixxx library: for me, there is no point going to these tree nodes, and loading them just slows down the UI.

The attached patch solves the bug. It's against lp:mixxx #2986.
Note: Mixxx restart is required after changing propertys in library.

Patch looks good to me but the config option "ShowTracktorLibrary" mis-spells Traktor. Feel free to commit to trunk after fixing the spelling.

Mixxx should tell the user that he has to restart it for this change to take effect.

this page edits the .ui file and tells the user to restart mixxx

Hi Max,

Good idea and very simple!
Since this Bug has already the state "Fix Commited", you should file a different bug and add your path there.
