   - Use the AUR package: [[aur>​foobar2000]]. A default Wine prefix will hog resource sa bit and my lag, so if you want to skip the AUR package you'll have to learn a bit about prefixes, or use something like [[PlayOnLinux]] maybe?   - Use the AUR package: [[aur>​foobar2000]].

-  - **Font troubles:** Make sure you have the fonts you need installed //in Wine//. The tricky thing is that I can't just run it in say the JP locale, because I have music from different places that use different character sets. I know [[arch>​noto-fonts-cjk]],​ and [[aur>​noto-fonts-cjk-otf]] didn't help. Nor did installing the Takao font with WineCFG, but selecting the option that installs a bunch of CJK fonts seems to work?! \\ See: [[wine#​fonts]],​ [[archw>​Wine#​Fonts]].+  - **Font troubles:** Make sure you have the fonts you need installed //in Wine//.

 +==== Exporting files for the 3DS ====
 +For me, the easiest way to get music ready for putting on a [[..:​hardware:​nintendo_3DS]] is to export it from playlists to their own directories.
 +
 +In Foobar:
 +
 +  - Right click on a playlist
 +  - In that menu go ''​Contents > File Operations > Copy to''​
 +    * If you save your 'Copy to' preset you can do ''​... > Copy to > [preset name]''​. You will still get a prompt and opportunity to change things before it runs.
 +  - Select a '​Destination folder'​
 +  - Select a '​Filename pattern'​. There'​s an easy-to-use dialogue, so you don't have to memorise the syntax.
 +    * I like ''​%list_index% - %title%'',​ which names the files with the number they are in the playlist and the track name.
 +    * Can't seem to find any syntax for adding the name of the playlist, so it can stick it in a subdir with that name :( You'll have to do this manually, either in your file manager, or when you export.
 +  - Uncheck the box 'Copy entire source folder content'​.
 +  - Click '​Run'​!
