Debian :: Preserve Long File Names (>37) In Genisoimage?

Dec 2, 2010

I need to make an ISO9660 file from a directory, but some of the files have names that are logner than 37 characters. I could not find a way to get the long names preserved.
I've tried various ways but in vain. "genisoimage -J -R -U -max-iso9660-names -o tst.iso cdroot" gets most close to the end, but not close enough!

Software :: Convert Directory Structure From Long File Names In System To DOS 8.3?

Sep 2, 2009

I've been looking high and low for a utility program or perl script or something that can take a linux directory structure as input and convert it to MS-DOS 8.3 directory structure.

The purpose of this is to conform to the path format that is expected on my rather old Creative Zen Neeon MP3 player for m3u play lists.

Fedora :: Fortran Programs And Long Path Names Input's

Apr 30, 2010

I have a fortran program example call like this:

This call cant run my fortran program because they output to the screen that the file ' ' (empty) cant be loaded!

So the problem is that my program cant see the file in the long path name above ( the real name is a bit more longer). I try with shorts path names , and the program can run, reading the input file.

I googleit for this type of error and only found that bash have limits on the filenames and inputs, so i change them (/usr/local/linux/limits.h or some like) to a very high value (999) ,but no success.

CentOS 5 :: Evince Not Opening Postscript Files With Long Names

Feb 28, 2011

I am using CentOS 5.5 64 bit.

My work requires me to have a lot of postscript files. Hence i have elaborate names for easy identification. For example --- AP-1_Jul-Ctrl-noEqSA_bg25C_precip, I am unable to open them using evince. I get a blank evince screen with loading written on it. The same file named as opens in a jiffy. As of now evince quickly opens pdf files with long names. But i would not like to convert ps to pdf.

Even kghostview does not open these long-named files.

Server :: Proper Way To Sync Debian Mirror But Preserve Sarge?

Aug 21, 2010

I have been tooling around with different way of getting our local Debian network mirror back up and running with different various scripts. I have tried apt-mirror which was a breeze to setup and run, anonftpsync again super easy to get rolling.

My question is there a way to make sure our Sarge distro doesn't get deleted from the mirror? A filtering command for rsync possibly?

I started to go over the script for the ftpsync (debian recommended!) and to be honest it seems way over my head due to lack of documentation that I have been able to find.

Ubuntu :: Ext4 File System Hosed After 11 Upgrade (duplicate Directory & File Names)?

May 8, 2011

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11 and a few days later my ecryptfs filesystem began misbehaving in a weird way. In my home directory, many subdirectory names are duplicated verbatim. Here's an ls -F excerpt:


I can no longer access files in those directories (if I ls the directory, it appears empty; I can cd to it, but there's nothing inside). Not all of the directories are duplicated/damaged like this, but most are. A few non-directory files are also duplicated in this fashion, so for example:

something like: -printfunction -printername < file*

General :: Add A File Extension To A Bunch Of File Names?

Oct 20, 2010

I have a considerable number of files in a subdirectory (some fascinating old military clips from - search on Big Picture if interested). Anyhow, I am downloading them using Internet Download Manager running in an XP virtual machine in VMWare on my Ubuntu 10.04 PC (due to the queuing, restart and speed capabilities of IDM). But I digress - the files are being saved on the host (Samba share) without a file extension. So I have a collection of files with names like


The Douglas MacArthur Story

I wish to add the extension ".mp4" In Windows this is simply done with the command


rename *. *.mp4

This of course does not work in Linux. I have researched the Linux rename command and reviewed a lot of examples. However, I have not found a way to add an extension to a batch of files which are named with no extension to start with. The spaces in the file names also seem to present an issue. At the moment I am renaming them from the Windows VM while they are sitting on the Samba share using the ancient File Manager program from Windows NT which works great on XP. I have experimented with the file rename facility in Gnome Commander however, it does not seem to want to do something so simple.

General :: Using Underscore In File Names?

Apr 4, 2011

I use the command line frequently to navigate my files so I try not to have spaces in file names. Typically I have used an underscore to connect words but it was recently suggested that I should use a dash. Are there any disadvantages to using an underscore in file names?Should I switch to a dash? My system is running Xubuntu and I almost exclusively use the bash shell.

Software :: Use CLI To Swap Names In A File?

Feb 25, 2010

I have a csv file of my students' names, but they're listed in the Asian order (last name, first name) and I need to list them in English order (first name, last name).

I know I can use something like awk, but that's usually substituting one thing for another. How can I get it to modify the names in a column in a csv file and swap the order? code...

I would want to switch "Tanaka Hiroto" to read "Hiroto Tanaka". There's about 500-600 names in the list, so doing this using CLI would save a lot of time.

Ubuntu :: Cli Comparing File Names Recursively?

Apr 24, 2011

I would like to use the command line to compare two directories against each other. I have two folders called music collection that have evolved over the last year on two separate computers. 90% of the two folders are the same, but there are small differences. I would like a solution that will print out all the differences so I can analyze them and choose what I want to do with them, before merging the two folders. for example.I would like some kind of output that shows the differences and where its located.

comparing MusicCollection1 and MusicCollection2
dif1.mp3 located in MC1/folder1 (this one I might want to keep and merge over)
dif2.mp3 located in MC2/folder3 (while this one I might realize does not exist in both folders because I deleted it for a reason)

I've looked at sort, uniq, and even tried scripting my own solution, but haven't come up with an elegant solution thus far. Its important that it is recursive because there are about 15 folders in Music collection and more folders under those 15.

General :: KDE - File Names With Special Characters ?

Feb 20, 2010

I am running gentoo openbox(rox file manager and desktop) I installed Digikam and Amarok. But I have problems with files which include special character in their names(such as �,�, �,ğ... ) The files are shown with strange and weird characters in the file dialogs of Digikam and Amarok.

I don't have this problem in other applications. I can create files with special character included. I think some settings do not agree with KDE4. How can I solve this problem? Does anyone have an idea? I also installed KDE systemsettings program but could not find a relevant config option for character encoding.

Programming :: Bash File Names With Spaces?

Jul 24, 2010

I have a laptop that I am in through SSH. The laptop does not have an Xwindow system so I am using the program fbi to open an image on my laptop screen from my SSH connection:

fbi -T 8 picture.jpg #this opens the image on the laptops tty8 terminal

I've found that making a for loop does not work with files that contain a space in the name. Something to due with a bug that they call a "feature" that stops the first variable at the first whitespace.

Using a "while" loop is not exactly what i require either seeing as I want to be able to view each image in the directory on screen and tag it accordingly, before it jumps off to the next image, and I'm not sure how to add a pause to a while loop.

How do I make a Bash script and loop Variables handle files like "files that contain spaces.jpg"

Slackware :: Takes A Long Time To Delete A File?

Mar 6, 2010

It takes an awfully long time to delete a file when deleting it though one of the KDE programs, like kdevelop or konqueror file manager.

Deleting files with rm works fine. I suspect it has to do with KDE recycling bin mechanics which I know nothing about. I am running fluxbox wm if that matters.

Ubuntu :: Bash - Check If All The File Names Are Correct?

Sep 23, 2010

I have bash script for converting files. I have a problem. If file name is "corrupted" then mv command for that file will not work. For example file with "-" in front of the name.

Is there a way to check if in some folder (subfolder) all the files have correct file names or they don't?

If they are all correct -> OK proceed with execution of the script!

If they are not all correct -> NOT OK stop with execution of the script!
