Song Import Problem in Linux

It's been months since I worked with OpenLP. Failing eyesight forced me to relinquish the video ministry to a younger man. But now I have the opportunity to prepare song files for the choir specials, and I'm excited by the prospect. 

I spent some time today renewing my skills with the software, and I ran into a roadblock. I download a file from SongSelect, the file manager shows the file where I save it, but the OpenLP Import Song "Add Files" doesn't list the file. It lists all the other .txt files in the directory, including a SongSelect file from long ago.

I'm running MX Linux 17.



  • Since no one seems to have a solution, and I haven't been able to come up[ with one, I booted Windows 10 for the first time since 2016 on my multiboot PC. I was pleased to observe that the file import problem did not exist there. So I guess I'll be a Windows user for OpenLP.
