posted in: Linux, Other, Technicalities | 0

Alreet.Sometimes Mendeley content has to move. There’s no easy way to tell Mendeley that. So.

  1. sudo apt-get install sqlitebrowser
  2. cd ~/.local/share/data/Mendeley\ Ltd./Mendeley\ Desktop/
  3. sqlitebrowser <you@whatever>@www.mendeley.com.sqlite
  4. Go to »Execute sql«-tab
  5. update Files set
    localUrl = replace(localUrl, 'file:///old/path/‘, 'file:///media/new/path/‘);
  6. click »Execute« (or F5 or ctrl+return)
  7. click »Write changes«
  8. Done. Easy, right?
