Ubuntu :: Renaming The Smb.conf File?

Apr 5, 2011

I am trying to follow the instructions in the smb.conf file which says, "name original file smb.conf.master and create the "real" config file with test parm -s smb.conf.master >smb.conf".

First I made myself the owner of the smb.conf file. Then I tried to rename the smb.conf file to smb.conf.master. When I try to do this with: rename smb.conf smb.conf.master the result is: Bareword "smb" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at (eval 1) line 1.Bareword "conf" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at (eval 1) line 1.

Can someone tell me what this means, (why it is happening) and what do I need to do in order to rename the smb.conf file to smb.conf.master.

Ubuntu :: Deleting File While Renaming / Recover These?

Feb 25, 2011

This has happened twice to me. I'm editing a filename on the desktop, for example, I have a part of the name highlighted and press delete. Inadvertently, I press delete again, but with nothing highlighted. The file is deleted, but is not added to the recycle bin (possible bug).

I believe that is what is happening. I cannot seem to recreate it purposefully on my work computer --I had done this at home this morning while sans-coffee.

Is there a way to recover the files?

General :: Renaming File Permission Chmod?

Apr 11, 2011

that works to disallow non-owners from renaming the file, but what I wouldlike to do is disallow EVERYONE ( including the owner of the file ) fromediting, moving, or changing the filename once it is created. the only personwho should be able to make those changes is a special user.

Programming :: File Renaming Based On A Pattern Match

Jan 8, 2011

What I am attempting to do is rename some television shows into the format that my PVR will understand for the naming convention. I have a script that cleans them up about 95%, now I just cant figure out the last little detail..

For example: NCIS_01.mkv
I think it can be done in sed, but I just figure out how. I need it to be renamed to: NCIS_s01e01.mkv

How can I make sed (or something else) match the last "_" and any numbers after it until the period and then insert text between them reliably?

Depending on the show, it can be something like: This_show_name_243.avi so I need it to be more flexible than I can figure out how to do..

General :: Renaming Files With Sed - Mv: Missing Destination File Operand After `$i'

Mar 20, 2011

Today i am trying to learn how to use sed. I set up a testing folder with the following files:


My goal is to create a script (test.sh) which renames all the files to their original name without AA. I want to end up with this:


sed seemed to be the perfect tool so i went ahead and created a script which i think should clear the job.


mv: missing destination file operand after `$i' From that 2nd line i can tell that $NewName is just empty. I also read something about sed needing the -e option for scripting purposes but i just don't understand it.

Ubuntu :: GDM Broken - Gdm-binary[230]: WARNING: Unable To Load File '/etc/gdm/custom.conf'. No Such File Or Directory

Sep 1, 2011

I've had Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my desktop since it's release. Up until an hour ago, it was working fine. I clicked on an update from the update manager, now booting into a graphical mode is completely broken, (the start-up load hangs at 'Check Battery State ... [0k]'). I restarted my computer, and booted into safe mode, and launched the terminal. This all works fine. I then typed :

Code: sudo gdm start into the command prompt, hoping that I would be able to start things manually. Instead, it spat out this: Code:

gdm-binary[230]: WARNING: Unable to load file '/etc/gdm/custom.conf'. No such file or directory.
gdm-binary[230]: WARNING: Unable to find users : no seat-id found.
gdm-binary[230]: WARNING: Gdm Display: display lasted 0.070467 seconds

The last line was printed about 8 times, with slightly different times, before it gave up and failed. Some information which might help, I have Gnome 2, Unity and KDE (not sure which version), installed. My graphics card is the GTX 275, and I have driver the Nvidia driver 275.21. So yeah, I think the update has gone and moved custom.conf somewhere, but I have no idea on how to fix it. I have a graphics programming assignment due on Friday and I would be eternally grateful if I could get this fixed well before then.

I successfully shared a subdirectory of my home directory, using GNOME under Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop. What drives me crazy is that I can't find this directory listed in /etc/samba/smb.conf, in a "path" line. Please tell me where is this directory specified, since smb.conf seems to be the only samba config file.

Ubuntu :: Configure Xorg.conf File In Lucid?

Jun 8, 2010

All I need to do is get my screen resolution to 1024x768, I can currently only get 800x600 and that's unacceptable for school. I created an xorg.conf file in Lucid and it does in fact refer to and use it. what led me to believe that is when I looked in the mirror and noticed smoke slowly rolling out of my ears! After replacing some of that smoke with a cigarette I decided to make this thread. As I said, I created the xorg.conf.new file with:

sudo Xorg -configure from recovery mode. And then moved it to its proper place with:

cp /home/william/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf

And that nested it right where it needs to be. X does in fact use it as confirmed by my Xorg.0.log.

Now I have an xorg.conf file, but am quickly becoming overwhelmed with information as to what to do. I've tried to create mode lines with xrandr, which gave me new settings, but I was unable to use them. Obviously the EDID info. is not being read because there is no mention of clock speed, Vsync or Hsync in my Xorg.0.log either. I have tried many things and really don't have time to spend all day at my computer, at least not with this issue. I'm in school and have to focus primarily on that right now. I will give what info I know is relevant starting with my monitor specs:

Dynex DX-LCDTV19
vertical resolution: 720 p
aspect ratio: 16:10
screen refresh rate: 60hz
comb filter: 3D/YC digital

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Wpa Wireless Without A Conf File?

Jan 4, 2011

I'm interested in learning how to start a wireless connection via the terminal rather than the NetworkManager applet. Every resource I've found on this subject talks about how you need to make a .conf file, then use wpa_supplicant. Is there a way to establish the connection without having to a create any file whatsoever? What are the steps for establishing the connection?

From what I've read, establishing a WEP connection is as simple as calling iwconfig and then dhclient. Are there similar steps for WPA2?
