This will bring up a dialog from where you can choose the downloaded file.

Once the file is opened you will be presented with a list of the songs in the file and you can choose which to import or not import

Note: The usage/display of these songs may be dependant on the copyright laws in your area.  They are provided here only as an aid for users. Check your local laws if concerned.

Bible Downloads

Lyricue can load bible verses from either via it’s own SQL format, or any sword bible module

Sword Format

Lyricue can use bible translations from the Sword project as long as you have a small utility called ‘diatheke’ installed.  If diatheke is installed any sword bibles installed will show up automatically without configuration. You may need to add/install the ‘diatheke’ tool from your package manager

Sword bibles are also used by Bibletime and Gnomesword/Xiphos

The most common method is to download from Crosswire.org.

The Sword project provides a number of bible translations in a number of different languages. When downloading from there please use the ‘Raw ZIP’ download.

Your distribution may also provide pre-made packages for some bible texts.

In the case of Ubuntu and Debian the packages are named ‘sword-text-*’. On other distributions they may be named differently.

Lyricue Database Format

Lyricue can import bibles in it’s own SQL-based format.
