Ubuntu :: Organize Folder With Images By Date Taken Rather Than Date Edited?

As a photographer I'm constantly taking photos and storing them in folders. Now occasionally I'm using two cameras (either for different settings or an assistant is also taking photos) which means that for one event I can have differently named images.Both cameras have the same time set (which always helps in Windows) but in Ubuntu when trying to sort my folder by date taken I can't.The options I'm given are to sort them: Manually, by Name, by Size, by Type, by Modification date and by Emblem.Now none of those are helpful to me once I've done a few edits to the images.So please if anyone knows, how do you organise a folder with images taken on different cameras by Date Taken rather than Date Edited?

General :: Use Date With Touch To Create New File With Date Based Name?
I am using CRON to create a new, blank file, every minute, in a specific location on my web server. After web searching, and reading man pages, I get the impression that the following command is supposed to work:touch /home/mydomain/var/folder/attachments/`date +%H%M`.txtThis should give me a new file with a file name that is the current hour and minute.However, when executed, the CRON mailer reports:touch /home/mydomain/var/folder/attachments/`date +/bin/sh: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching /bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of fileSo, it looks like shell is seeing the plus (+) sign as an EOFObviously, nothing get created.What would be the easiest, single line command to create an empty file, at a given location, with a time based file name

General :: Sort And Rename Images By Date In EXIF Info?
I have a mess in my photos folder; I want to sort them according to date in EXIF information and rename according to the date (like 001.jpg, 002.jpg and so on).

How can I do this in Linux? I have used ImageMagick for some basic bulk processing tasks before (converting and resizing, etc), is it possible to use it for this task?

General :: Move File And Folder Date Stamps?
I wrote this little script and I need some help, I am trying to achieve following:Every day I receive new file in the /home/denis/MyData/ folder and I don't know what the file mane will be but I want to move any file that arrives there to the new location /media/DataBackup/Linux/backup/ (media/DataBackup/ is external 500GB USB drive)to automatically create new folder with the date and time stamp every day and then to move content of the /home/denis/MyData/ into the new folder with current date stamp. So every day there will be new folder and will contain files for that day only.My script is as follows:

cd /media/DataBackup/Linux/backup/
mkdir MyData_$(date +%Y%b%d_%HH%MM)
#this creates file MyData_current date and time

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Digikam - Renaming On Import - "Create Date" Versus "File Modification Date"
I just switched from a basic digital camera to a more advanced one that stores both Jpeg and Raw (.Nef - it's a Nikon) files for me.When importing files in Digikam, I rename the files so that they start with Date and Time. Example: 20110121-223748.JPG for a photo taken on Jan 21st 2011 at 22:37:48.I was a bit surprised when importing both the JPEG and the Raw version of the same photo, that the filename is different by a few seconds (no constant offset, sometimes they are the same):


I did some "research" by looking at the exif data of both files (using "exiftool 20110121-223748.JPG" from the command line). Here is what I got back

(amongst other data):20110121-223748.JPG
File Modification Date/Time : 2011:01:21 22:37:48+01:00
Modify Date : 2011:01:21 22:37:48
Date/Time Original : 2011:01:21 22:37:48


So it seems that Digikam is using the "File Modification Date/Time" (different in the Jpeg's and Raw's of my camera) rather than the "Create Date" (the same for both Jpeg and Raw). (The few seconds difference in "File Modification Date/Time" between the two versions of the same photo is probably due to the time that my camera needs to write away the data on the SD memory card. I guess.) Is there a way to have Digikam use the Create Date? (Or the Date/Time Original?)

PS: I'm on Ubuntu 10.04LTS, using DigiKam 1.2.0

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rename All JPEGs In A Folder By EXIF Date & Time Stamp?
In the Windows world where I came from, Irfanview freeware easily renamed a large folder of JPEG photos by EXIF time & date stamps, appending a unique number if the time and date stamps were the same. Is there an equivalent rename-by-EXIF information batch command in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid? For example, change (based solely on EXIF information): FROM:DSC_0001.JPG TO:20110224_09:34:56am.JPG

Programming :: Keep Original Mod Date Of A File And 'date' It Back To Same File?
I would really like to preserve a file's original modified date and pass it back to the file as the same attribute after a script has worked on it. I get a lot of JPEG files from different places on the Net which I either turn around and upload or burn to disk, and having the "original" date of either download or last mod in a graphics app would be for me, in the long run, a lot more helpful when deciding, for instance, which files to "recycle" or pass on backing up more than once.I've tried doing this on my own every now and then. Where I run into problems is that it appears "stat" and "date" use different formats for date information, and I can't seem to puzzle out how to "translate" one to the other satisfactorily for the latter command.

Just to give an example:
stat foo.jpg |grep Modify gives me
Modify: 2010-07-12 06:28:56.890625000 -0400

Passing that string as-is to date foo.jpg, I get the errordate: unknown option -- 0 and the usual semi-courteous suggestion to Try 'date --help' for more information.Somehow my TexInfo database got screwed up somewhere along the line and info dategives me the short article on date input formats, not the full documentation for the command

Ubuntu :: Find Out The Last "up-to-date" Date For "Update Manager"?
When I clall the "update manager" it tells me if my system is up-to-date or new updates are available. Lets assume I update my system now (I disabled automatic updates).

Then (in a couple of days or weeks) I start the Update Manager again and it tells me again that new updates available. How can I find out now when the last time was when my system was "up-to-date" (=when a complete, successful update took place)?

Is there soemwhere an entry which shows this date?

Ubuntu :: Adjust Date And Time In 10.10?
If one right-clicks on the date and time tab in Ubuntu 10.10 desktop, then there is no obvious way to change the time. If one right-clicks and goes to help, then the explanation for changing time is as follows under the category 'usage':

2.3. To Adjust the System Date or Time.

To adjust the system date or time that the Clock applet displays, perform the following steps:

1. Right-click on the applet, then choose Adjust Date & Time.

2. Type the root password, then click OK.

3. The Clock applet starts the system tool that sets the system date and time. Use the tool to adjust the date and time.

The actual way to do this is as follows:

Right-click on the date and time applet. select preferences, and down at the bottom of the window that opens push the 'time settings' button.

Then you will be able to adjust that date and time.

Ubuntu Servers :: Keeping Up To Date
Fairly new to Ubuntu server. Was curious about keeping a running system up to date. Can any harm come from running the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

What I mean is, is it possible that doing the above could cause a perfectly healthy system to go foobar? If so, what's the best way to prepare a system for a recovery. The Server in question is a Hardy BIND server. In the past, I've seen some ugly things happen to Windows systems after running updates, so I'd like to err on the side of caution.
