Ubuntu :: Creating Readable File From Multiple Html Files
Oct 2, 2010
Here is the deal: my school purchased a test prep which they distributed to us, the only problem is that it is for windows. When I try to run the exe in wine the program windows pops up but the screen is blank (i can see the menu bar and and the title bar). It appears that most of the information is located in a folder as html files (separated into chapters for each section) with links to all the figures/tables/questions
(also html files). This morning I have been trying to find a way to compile the html files into a format that I can read without having to hunt for each individual html file. I tried navigating with firefox but had to change each individual link before I could do that (very time consuming), I tried using doxygen (the GUI front end) to convert it to Latex/rtf/html/xml (all the formats) but did not have any success (It could be that I am using the app wrong). I tried opening some java applications found within the application data folder in hopes that it would bring up the navigator without success. And even tried installing java in wine (unsuccessfully) to see if that was the missing key to run the program in wine.
My question is, do I just have to fork out the $500+ that it would cost me to purchase the books instead of using the school provided program (free to us)? or is there a relatively simple way to compile these files into a format that could be readable.
tl;dr - have multiple html files for a windows native program that won't run on wine that I would like to convert to a more easily readable format (i.e. chm, pdf, etc), is it possible?the program was legally acquired through my school, I did not download or pirate it. I am not looking to distribute it, just looking to use it for my own studying purposes without spending $500+ or buying a windows license/computer.
I want to change some HTML in my files (80+ so I prefer not to do this by hand). I got a script to replace a string in files, however the HTML I want to replace contains an enter (and tab of 4 spaces) (explanation below) Does someone know how I could update my HTML by using a function in Linux?
I also found sed but don't know how to use it with the enter (linenumbers will not work because they variate)...
I have read alot about exporting or printing to PDF using open office. Haven t tried it but its pretty standard to be able to do that from a word processor so I'm not worried about it.here is an example of what I need to do. I just put together my wifes resume. I had the cover sheet in .doc I had the resume in .doc I had a pdf of some ground plans for large scale gardens she had done and I had a few new pix in jpeg. I was able to go into Lightening PDF hit create new, pull all those files in, sort them in the order I needed and it created a single mutipage .pdf from those files.
Any luck on finding something like that for linux? That would be just about the last piece of software (If I can make wings work for me) that I need to start testing ubuntu as a primary operating system.
HI am facing the strange issue in netbeans on ubuntu 9.04. whenever the file contains more than 3000 lines the characters overlap on each other and the file is not readable, where as if the file is less than 3000 lines it works fine. what may be the reason ?
When trying to create a new compressed/archive file in Gnome Commander (GM) the file is created but the selected files are not added. I can open the new (empty) archive file and then add files to be compressed. I have tried using several different formats (zip, tar.bz and others) with the same results. The "file roller" is shown as a plugin but has no configuration other than the compressed file type.
I am wondering how I would go about creating a .deb file that would extract it's contents to two different folders. I would have one file directory that should be extracted to /opt and I have a second that should bextracted to the current user's home folder and /etc/skel - How would I go about doing this?
I got a CD of JPG files from a photographer. Some of the files are not readable on my Ubuntu machine (they show up as X icons in the Nautilus file browser). I figured out that the reason is that they are not "world-readable" (and also not "group-readable") and they are owned by a user that does not exist on my machine. I am able to work around it by doing sudo nautilus Is there any easier way to do this? I am thinking some setting I can make on my system relating to the CD driver works?
I need a little help creating a ftp script that will take connection and file details from text files.For example:ftpscript.sh - script that looks for details and does transferftpparams.txt - ftp server connection details in single line csv formatftpfiles.txt - files that need to be transfer, one file per line.I have tried using awk with no success
I have a little problem using CDs or DVDs. If I put a disc in my DVD-Recorder it is mounted and the content of the disc is shown in dolphin (or any other programm for that matter). The names and attributes (size, date etc) of the folders and files are all correctly shown - except it is a multisession-disc, then there are only files of one of the sessions (probably the first) shown. The permissions say that the files are readable (user is my useraccount and group is "root").However, if I try to open a file on the disc, the program (for example sm-player if it is a video) freezes or displays a message that the file is corrupted (for example open office if it is a textfile).Trying to copy a file from the disc to the harddrive results in an error that the file is not readable, but there is a file created on the harddrive - it has the correct name but the size is 0B.Burning a disc with k3b creates also an error, although the disc is correctly recognized - but as soon as the burning should start an error occurs.I'm pretty sure that it is not an hardware-issue, since this DVD-Drive has worked fine under openSUSE11.1-32bit and it still works if I put a bootable disc in. There is no problem runnig a live-CD and I had no problems with the drive when I installed the very same system that I'm working with from a disc.Logging in as root doesn't change a thing.
I tried to search if this problem was solved before, but all I found were problems where the disc-drive wouldn't mount at all ... so please, if anyone knows a solution or at least a place where I can found one - I really have no idea what to do about this.
Linux permissions have always frustrated me. They are really annoying to work with and very unversatile compared to NTFS.Here's my current situation, and I don't understand what's going on here.
I have a server with a smb share, a user on another machine is in the group that is assigned to those files. The files are chmodded 770. If the user is in that group then technically that user should have access to those files... but it does not. If I chmod to 775 then the user has access. WTF? Why? I don't care given it's a local server, but still, if I have to make files world readable for a single user to have access even though I granted those rights through the filesystem and through samba, then that's a huge security issue, and it's no wonder we're not seeing Linux used for enterprise file servers.
Another thing that pisses me off with linux permissions is when a new file is created, the permissions arn't inherited. This folder gets lot of data added to it but it defaults to whatever the default permissions are. I need to run a script to periodicly fix all the permissions. To me this is really messy.
I have a log file on ubuntu 10.04 that has 500 lines of log data in it. What command could I use in a terminal to split the single 500-line file into generate ten files each with 50-lines of log files each?
I have made the simple mistake of using dolphin to rename several picture files of types jpg and png. I have no problem viewing them and Ubuntu still knows which is which (if i view their properties it will state File Type: JPEG or PNG) but unfortunately Ubuntu Tweak does not allow you to chose them without the extension (I am trying to change my login background using this) So what i need is something that can scan several files, determine the file type, and add an appropriate extension to it. I have found several to do so for music files but none for images. I am using Ubuntu 11.04 at the moment.
I have noticed and this now worries me, if I export a KeePassX xml file then open it with a text editor I can see all my �private� details.Just tested it on my old desktop with Slitaz and open the exported file with leafpad text editor and I can see my details just the same.Previously I used RoboForm and when viewing an exported file in the same way you could not make out any of my details. Is KeePassX designed this way or have I not used KeePassX correctly.I have posted this on KeePassX forum and emailed them direct with no response so far.Ubuntu 11.04.
I have a file with 5 columns. Column 4 contains numbers.Is it possible to split the file into multiple files using a condition for the contents of column 4 i.e if column 4 contains a value between 0-10 then print the lines to a new file called less_than_10.txt
So im trying to un rar my rar. files. I use 7-zip, and winrar, Every time i try to unrar them it says broken file, cannot open file. This happens to nearly most of my rar files in the last few weeks, idk what else to do,
I've been trying to sort this out for several hours and I?m totally lost? I?ve been searching around, but haven?t found the solution to my problem. I have a directory with 100 files. I need to copy 10 lines of each files (let?s say from line 45 to 55) into one unique file. So I guess I could use sed ?w, but I didn?t manage to write the right script. I also tried using a loop to create 100 different files, each one with the 10 lines) to concatenate them later on. But I only got 1 file, not 100.
I have been scouring the internet looking for a good solution to reading .pdb eBooks on Linux.It seems that there isn't one.Could you perhaps recommend a good app to either convert the file easily into something readable or (more preferably) an app that can read them?
I noticed that our /etc/shadow file is readable on a patch I released for one of our in house linux boxes a while back ago. Could they use it to gain access the root account etc? Our passwords are all MD5 encrypted.
I have a file which contains the data i retrieved through prstat and an array that contains all the unique process ID's of that particular file. i want to compare each and every line in the file with each and every element of the array so that i can create multiple files for the multiple value in the array.
i just touch linux, may i know how can i convert the core dump file to a readable textfile, which include all the information, which is in core dump, such as all variables, threads information, call trace for each tasks, and so on. i know use the GDB can view this, but it won't dump all the informations to one text file. but sometimes, people want to view the core dump reason without Linux environment.
I'm working on some scheduled task script files to keep nightly backups of some of our database information in place, and it's a bit annoying when they blow up. I know how to redirect stdout and stderr to a flat file I can view when I come in, and I know that 2>&1 maps them both to the same file (whatever was named in 1). However, I'm running into some cron-time situations where it's easier to have the two streams together, and other cron-time situations where it's easier to have them separated. I can't really tell which is going to happen; is there some way I could create both kinds of output file for my scripts, so that I've got a std_err only file and an interleaved std_out/std_err file?
Note: I've looked at the 'tee' command, but I don't think it will work for what I'm after. 'tee' appears to only work with stdout; I'm trying to work with stderr.
I am using Xfce as the desktop enviroment and Mozilla Firefox as the webrowser. Within the webrowser window, I do File>Save Page As. I save it, and the result is almost always foo.html and directory foo_files. But I think under KDE I could choose the format, one of them being something like "Single page" (only one file; the colecction of .png, etc is embedded into that file). And this is the format I want Xfce (or Firefox) to use when downloading to hdd.
