General :: Have A List Of Files, Move Them Using One Command?

Nov 2, 2010

I have run a command which finds a lot of files based on some search criteria. It returns the files like so:

./somepath/somepath/file.something
./asdf/asdf/s.php
./etc/a.php
./a/b/c/d/e/f/g.jpg

So I was wondering, if I capture this output into a file (ie. one file per line), can anyone help me write a command which iterates through the file and moves the files one by one to a specified directory?

Ubuntu :: Move Multiple Files Via Command Line?

Sep 15, 2010

I liked the idea of the "cosmos" screensaver/desktop, but wanted to add my own pictures to the application. I navigated to /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos and tried to drag and drop. I quickly found that I did not have permission to do this.

I googled my problem and found some command line tutorials telling me to sudo cp. My problem is that I have about 30 pics that I want to move in there, and I don't think I can just move the directory, they have to be in that folder as the pictures themselves.

I don't really feel like typing the cp line multiple times with multiple randomly named image files.

Is there a way to have the command line cp all of my files from one directory to another?

Slackware :: Use The Ls Command To List Files In One Column?

Sep 20, 2010

I am doing a spreadsheet for work (for importing data into a new database) and I have hundreds of image files which need to have just their file names in one column called Product Code. Is it possible to use the ls command to list the contents of a directory in one single column so that I can copy and paste to the spread sheet?

Also, is there a single command to remove the file extentions for a batch of files? Bulk rename is what I need, I guess but just to remove the file extension (.jpg on all of them). The normal use of ls lists them in multiple column form and when I copy and paste those it will not let me copy just one cloumn at a time. The spreadsheet only has three columns:

New Product Code Old Product Code Pictures New Product Code will be left black, and the Old Product Code is just the image names. The picture column will be the patch-to-the-image for each image. I am not sure that is even possible in a spreadsheet.

General :: Scripting - Move A List From A Text File To Directory ?

Jan 10, 2011

I'm sure I've done this before and am having a brain fart.

I have run into this a couple of time this last month:

I have a list of torrent files (blahblahhexblah.torrent) saved in a text file. I would like to read the text file and populate the client directory.

I can echo the file using:

But I cannot remember how to pipe the output into the directory, nor can I find any resources that describe the process.

Interestingly enough, I've had a couple of opportunities to do similar tasks with passwords and privileges and even across the LAN in the last few days. Solving this problem will help me solve the others for next time.

Ubuntu :: How To Move XP To First In List

Dec 24, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS installed and have discovered that menu.lst has gone with grub2 and I now have to do something incomprehensible in grub.dI have dual boot with XP and I want to put Windows XP as the default and first boot option (not the last as it is now).

Could someone be so kind as to show me a complete idiot's step-by-step guide of how to move XP to the first in the list.Ubuntu will not connect to the Internet. It always did before Lucid Lynx but not now - See:URL...My easy option is to remove Ubuntu altogether but having used it extensively since Hardy Heron (I think) I live in the faint hope that it will once again become a shining beacon of excellence it once was and not just a waste of space on my hard drive.

General :: Files Don't Move Back To /var/log And Keep Getting Renamed?

Mar 15, 2010

I have this script that I use to find log files in the /var/log directory that are 2 days old, move them to /var/log/tmp, rename them to the system date.filename and move them back to /var/log. Everything seems to work as planned, except that the files don't get moved out of temp, and they keep getting rename. This leads to very long filenames such as:

2010-02-22.user_040.2010-03-05.user_040.2010-03-07.user_040.gz

What is it about this script that isn't moving it back to /var/log? Also, is there a better way of doing this than what I'm doing? Basically, I'm just trying to set up an audit trail on some of the files in /var/log, so that at the end of the month I can tar them, and then have our syslog server pick up the one giant monthly log.

Code:
# Create variables.
dir="/var/log"
tmp="$dir/tmp"
hostname="$(uname -n)"

General :: Can't Rename/move Files From OSX That Were Copied From NTFS

Jun 29, 2010

I recently had data recovered and it was sent back to me on what I think is an NTFS drive. I copied all the files over to a file share I have on a Linux box, that's ext4. Now I have that share mounted on my OSX machine, and I can't move or rename most of the files. However, in a couple cases I was able to rename a folder after the third try. Another time I was able to rename a folder once, but not again. All the permissions are showing up the same on the command-line -- I can't see any differences between the permissions on any of the files/folders. Note that I can create new folders and add files no problem, and then rename and move those all I want.
