General :: Copying All .jpg Or .JPG Files From A Folder And All Its Subfolders To /usr/name/pictures Folder?

Sep 10, 2009

How would i go about copying all .jpg or .JPG files from a folder and all its subfolders to my /usr/name/pictures folder? I'm guessing I'd have to use some sort of .[jJ][pP][gG] to get all the pictures from other examples i've seen, but really not sure how to use that in a recursive cp.

Ubuntu :: Copying All Files In Folder To Another Location?

Feb 21, 2011

suppose I have a tree structure like this:

/home/mahmood/sim/a/b/file1.cpp
/home/mahmood/sim/a/b/file2.h
/home/mahmood/sim/a/c/file3.txt
/home/mahmood/sim/d/file4.txt

How can I copy all of them to /home/mahmood/sim. So that when I run "ls" in /home/mahmood/sim, I see all files:

file1.cpp
file2.h
file3.txt
file4.txt

Can 'cp' search for all file and copy them in another folder?

Ubuntu :: Duplicating Folder Structure And Copying Files

Nov 21, 2010

I'm looking for some way to search a given directory, copy its folder structure to another given directory, and copy from the original only certain files into the newly created directory.Vague, I'm sure. But here's what I'm actually looking for:My music player won't display album art without a "cover.jpg" image in each folder where the files are, but I have Rhythmbox set to only copy the top rated songs. Each file does have its cover embedded in it, but there's also a cover.jpg in each folder.

So I'd like to let Rhythmbox handle the actual song copying, and then have a script or something that I can run that will scan my onboard music directory for cover.jpg files and then place them in the appropriate folders within my music player's folders. Obviously I can't just copy my onboard music directory, or I'm getting *every* song, not just the top-rated, which defeats the purpose of syncing at all.

Ubuntu :: Inherit Parent Folder Permissions When Copying Files ?

Mar 28, 2011

I do have an Ubuntu Headless server which is running Samba on it. My mp3 file collection resides on that server on is being share.

So far, no problems connecting to that drive and writing from my Windows box on that share. But if I use my main laptop, which runs Ubuntu Lucid and download an mp3 song from Amazon, the moment I move that to the share, I got permissions problems from the Windows machine. This is clearly a permission issue with group and others; the song is being created on the share without read and write permissions to others or the samba group I created.

My question is. How can I make this process simple or automatic, when moving songs to the share? I don't want to go there everytime and run ...

Code:

Which was basically how I reset or fixed the problem.

I've read about umask, but not sure if that applies here or not, because I'm not creating the file but moving it.

General :: Copy Folder Hierarchy / Recreate All Folders From One Directory Without Copying Over Contents Of Folder?

Jul 2, 2010

Is there a way to recreate all the folders from one directory to another without copying over the contents of the folder? I've been trying to do something like this,

Code:for i in `ls $X`; do mkdir $PATH/$i; doneUnfortunately $i is deliminated by whitespaces in the filenames and not the actual folders.

$X contains only other folders so I dont have to worry about regular files but any kind of more "advanced" solution would work.

Ubuntu :: Copying Folder To Home Folder?

Jan 8, 2011

I'm not positive if this is in the correct section but I am hoping so. I am running dual-boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10. I hunted down my files from Windows that I need for school (old papers, research, etc.) and found it under "file system" --> "host" --> "users" --> "zbollman". I can access all of my files and I'm happy now that I don't have to boot between the two constantly to get what I need. However, I tried to copy the file to my home folder, but it said I do not have enough room. I'm about 5GB short. How do I go about allocating more space so that I can copy this folder so that all of my information is easily accessible?

Programming :: Bash Command To Remove All Files Within A Specific Folder?

Oct 19, 2010

I want to delete all files within a specific folder without actually deleting the folder, what is a good bash command for this?. I found this one but encountered some errors even though I am executing it within the specific folder:

useratdebian:/home/user/folder# find . -type f -exec rm -rf {} ;
[1] 5052
useratdebian:/home/user/folder# find: missing argument to `-exec'
[1]+ Exit 1 find . -type f -exec rm -rf

The command as it appears is:

find . -type f -exec rm -rf {} ;

how to delete only the files contained within the folder called "folder" for example?

Ubuntu :: Copying To Protected Folder?

Nov 12, 2010

I am trying to copy a (custom XML) file to a protected folder (namely /usr/share/games/FlightGear/Protocol) for data Input/Output.I tried copying and pasting the folders and it doesn't work. I realized that it is because only root user has the permission to do modification.So, I tried using "sudo cp" to copy the file. The file was copied, but the content now becomes unreadable when I tried to open the file

OpenSUSE :: Dolphin Losing Files When Copying Many Files Or Large Folders?

Feb 14, 2010

I've discovered that Dolphin seems to lose random files when copying many large folders.

I first noticed this a few months ago when I tried to copy my music library from one folder to another on the same HDD. It consisted of around 600 folders and 6500 files. During the copy there were no errors but after the copy I found that some of the newly copied folders were missing files. I put it down to human error or a glitch.

Yesterday I tried to copy 13 folders containing rips of some of my DVDs. Each folder basically had one film of either 700MB or 1.4GB. Again no errors showed up during the copy but I found 3 of the newly copied folders were empty.

It's not so critical with music or films but I can't afford to lose work data like this.

Has anyone experienced or seen a similar problem with Dolphin? I'm going to have to do some more extensive testing but this is not good.

The first time I noticed the problem I was running KDE4.3.4 (I think) and now the latest was with KDE4.4.0.

General :: Unable To Share Folder In Suse 10.0 / Folder Defaults To Not Shared

And now I see what looks like an electrical plug icon symbol over the folder icon symbol like I might see used for some of the root folders. What does the new icon indicate about the folder attributes and why does file sharing default to 'not shared'?
