Ubuntu :: Sequentially Number Files Based On Date Modified - Rename Cli

Nov 8, 2010

Sequentially number files based on date modified (rename cli)

I'm almost done a larger script which takes all the pictures in a folder, converts it to video, and emails it to me. Everything worked fine until I realized the picture filenames weren't always starting at 1, then ffmpeg chokes.

I have a bunch of files in a folder which I need to rename to:

I don't want to install any additional packages and I'd like this to run in a single command if possible.

If not possible, then a bash script would work too.

Software :: Making A Bash Script To Read In Different Files And Rename Output Files?

May 7, 2009

Until now i haven't had to dabble with bash scripts.

I have a program that reads in data files. These are named datafile01_R, datafile01_G, datafile01_B, they then increment, so datafile02_R etc i have about 600 of these. the program reads in 3 data sets at a time from each run, so files_01 r, g, and b.

The program then does its magic, and outputs about 40 different files, depending on the file, they gone to folders named R, G, B, psa, or tracking.

The program itself has configuration files to say where the files should gone when analyzed, there is also the config files that reads in the data sets.

At the moment i have to run one set of data, then go in and manually change the input file location, and run again. But, doing this, even though a different data set, the new set overwrites the old set in one of the output folders. So i need a way to increment the output filenames after they are written and before the program is run again with the new data set.

Ubuntu :: Application That Plays Single Rar Files Containing Mp3 Files?

May 21, 2011

On Windows I've been using XMPlayer for that purpose. XMPlayer has got a rar plugin and it works as expected.I stumbled across this plugin for Audacious but I'm not sure it's relatedhttp://kittylambda.com/rsn_plugin_for_audaciousI've ran XMPlay succesfully with wine with the rar plugin and it actually works (a bit slower but it works). But what I'm missing is integration with nautilus since drag and drop won't work from nautilus to XMPlayer. I have to navigate to the rar file manually on the file-open window and since Nautilus puts it's mounts on /home/[username]/.gvfsit's a bit cumbersome.

Ubuntu :: Program To Rename Many Files At Once?

Nov 8, 2010

I guess the title says it all. I'm looking for a program that will rename a massive amount of files at once. JPGs specifically, or PNGs. More specifically,I'm creating a stopmotion movie. Using the program StopMotion. And for that, all you pictures, or frames, have to be named 001.jpg 002.jpg and so on. I've got about 300 or so images, and they're all named the default thing that my camera names them, you know, like DSCIM8520 or whatever. I'm looking for maybe a command line program or GUI is fine too, that will do this for me.

Ubuntu :: Rename Files - Add Number To All In Folder ?

Feb 14, 2010

Getting together a script that will add numbers to all the files in a folder.

I've ripped most of my CDs to oggs for my new pmp, but I found that the pmp doesn't like files that are numbered just as 1 and 2, as it thinks that the 2 is more than 10.

So instead of going through all of my music folders and renaming every file by hand from 1 to 01 and from 2 to 02, I'd ask if there's a script that can be executed to add these numbers for me. It'd be even better if it only added the number to the files with only one digit.

Here's an example:

I want to rename:

And I'd like to do it to all single-digit files lower than 10 in the folder, if possible. If not, I can isolate them by hand.

Ubuntu :: Rename Files In A Directory Randomly?

Jun 19, 2010

I want to rename all files in a directory to "random" names(the point is that the name does not exist, it can be anything). In my case is it *.wav file i want to rename, i basically want to burn cd's to my pc with cdparanoia, then rename them and put them in a directory with other songs i have which also have been given random names. (i'm creating a big music directory where the songs have no names)And i will eventually make a script to make things easier, but for some reason i can't think out a way to rename the files randomly, and i guess "$RANDOM" is a good variable to use but.. how?EDIT: And while i'm at it, is there any way to use the "play" command in the terminal, by "sorting" music files in a directory randomly, and then play them, so it will not be played the same order again?

Ubuntu :: Rename Hundreds Of .picasa.ini Files?

Sep 11, 2010

In my photos folder, I have hundreds of folders, each with Picasa.ini files.

Unfortunately, a lot of these files are actually ".picasa.ini" files & Picasa 3.0 does not recognize them.

All I want to do is rename all those ".picasa.ini" files to "Picasa.ini".

If there was a GUI way to do this, all in one go, then that would be my prefered method.

I couldn't find one, so reluctantly tried Terminal. After a lot of reading & trying, still no success.

"locate .picasa.ini" finds all the files easily.

I tried many variants around: "rename -v -n 's/.picasa.ini$/Picasa.ini/' .picasa.ini" to run a simulation without screwing anything up yet, but at best they only seem to rename one occurence, not all the files.

Ubuntu :: Rename And Save Multiple Files?

Feb 22, 2011

I am quite new to script programming and I am facing an uphill task to rename files in one folder. I have gone through similar posts but most of them deal with renaming files by changing the file extensions.Problem : I have a folder which contains files like bild01.jpg,bild02.jpg. There are more files in the folders which should remain untouched. I want to rename these 'bild' files as follows:

bild01.jpg -----> 1c.jpg
bild02.jpg -----> 2c.jpg
bild30.jpg------>30c.jpg
I would like to create a script as:
#!/bin/bash
npics=`ls -1 bild*| wc -l`

General :: Script To Rename Files Recursively?

May 8, 2011

I'm planning to writing a script to rename files recursively.

To be said that I'm using /bin/sh (not /bin/bash) as this is the only shell available on the busybox of the linux router (tomato) I'm using.

Basically I would like to rename files with extension .jpg using as a suffix the filename of another file in the very same directory with extension .avi

The reason for this is because pretty much all the DLNA devices like modern TV playing .avi files will display a thumbnail of the video when browsing the filesystem, however to do so they'll need .jpg image wit hthe same filename of the video in the very same directory.

General :: Make A Script To Rename All The Files?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm currently trying to make a script to rename all the files with one provided file extension to a second provided file extension. I've achieved this by commanding "sh newext doc txt" with the following which works perfectly:

#!/bin/sh
for f in *$1;
do
mv "$f" "`basename "$f" $1`$2";
done;

However, I'd like to be able to modify what I've written so far, so that I can choose whether to convert file extensions in a subdirectory or not. For example, I could enter "sh newext -r doc txt" and the subdirectory's files would also be affected by my script, or enter "sh newext -n doc txt" which would only affect the directory I'm in.
