Debian :: Locating A Certain Folder - No Such File Or Directoy

Feb 28, 2011

I'm trying to run a "Garry's Mod" game server on my dedicated server. I'm using a very helpful tutorial on the Gmod wiki (I cannot post a link to it as I don't have 15 posts or more ).

Now I have very, very little experience with Linux (I am running Debian on it). However, I've gotten quite far in the tutorial, and everything looks to be perfect. I am using putty to access my server, but I also have FTP on it.

Basically, when I need to access a certain folder called "orangebox" (using cd orangebox), an error comes up saying this:-bash: cd: orangebox: No such file or directory.

However, I know that there is such a folder, as I can see it fine on FTP.

Jan 27, 2011

I am in process of installing a VMware tools PKg and am being asked for the path to the C headers for the kernel. I've browsed every folder, found lots of 'C' header files and tried these paths but none are being taken by the script. which path I need to provide for 'the C headers' for my kernel? running Piapix, Deb5. The os is running perfectly so I doubt there is error other than I am not 'wise' enough to locate these little buggers!

Debian :: Nautilus File Browser - Open Folder By Using The Shift And F4 Keys

In the kde realm, with the dolphin file browser, I can open a terminal in whatever folder is in the gui by using the shift and f4 keys. I'd like to be able to accomplish the same in gnome with the nautilus file browser but can't figure out how to do same. So far I have to open a terminal and then cd to the desired folder. Or do I have to use some other file browser and which one?

Ubuntu :: Drag File/Folder To Taskbar Button Creates Launcher, Not Bring Folder To Foreground?

May 20, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04, I noticed something strange, being that when I want to drag a file or folder from one Nautilus folder window to another which is not visible, I can no longer hold the item over said folder's taskbar button and wait for it to appear. It just shows the + for copy, and when I let go (which I have no choice but to eventually do), it creates a launcher to that item (I assume it's doing that, and not actually copying there, but the + has me unsure).

I've looked in Nautilus's preferences to see if this is some new behaviour that I can revert back to, but could find nothing there.

I'm of course using the Classic desktop with bottom panel being the taskbar. If you know how I can rectify this, please let me know, as the times I would want to create a file or folder launcher without the usual hassle would be rare, but I am constantly dragging stuff from one folder to another, and it would be a real pain to have to line up source and destination folders each time.

Programming :: Make A New Folder For Each File In A Particular Folder

Mar 28, 2011

I been using linux for a while, but I havent had the time to really learn it. Something Id like to get more familiar with is bash so here is a simple example of something I would like to do:

I have a directory full of files. For each file in the directory create a new subdirectory with each files name.

I tried this:

#im already in this directory
for a in $aaa
do mkdir $a

One of the problems is that there are spaces () and - in the filenames so I get many subfolders with names like "-" which i don't want.

I tried stuff like:
for a in $aaa
do mkdir "'"$a"'"

This of course also did not work.

Additional I tried just creating a folder with the name of one of the files and I got this:

mkdir: cannot create directory `(audio) - R56339.EXE': File exists
Well yeah a file exsists with that name, but I want to create a folder- why is there a conflict?

Just to be clear here are the contents of this folder:
~/Desktop/LAB/Media/Drivers - (Image Deployment)/Optiplex_GX260/XP> ls
(audio) - R56339.EXE (NIC-Onboard-Intel) - R54402.EXE
(Modem-datafax-V92) - R54403.EXE OEM_Applications

Ubuntu :: Locating The Pointer With Ctrl?

Mar 2, 2011

Some time ago I did something on my laptop in Ubuntu 10.4 which enabled the Ctrl key to create concentric rings around the cursor so I could find it. I still have that, and it's very useful. But I discovered that it also created very pretty ripples in my wallpaper, as if a stone had been thrown into a pond, and that additional effect has suddenly gone away.I can't remember where this keybinding was set up, and I have searched in vain in CompizConfig for it.

Ubuntu :: Locating Mail - Perl Script For FetchYahoo?

Jun 18, 2010

New Ubuntu user here switched from Windows to Linux. I finally was able to install a program that allowed me to forward my pop3 to Evolution mail so that I have easy access to my emails. However, once I ran the Perl script for fetchyahoo, it asked me what the path was on the system for my mail spool or mailbox. Where exactly is my spool or mailbox for Evolution so that I can get my Yahoo! mail into the client? I have the free version of Yahoo, so I am trying to use fetchyahoo in the hopes that I can circumvent Yahoo's no-pop policy for free users. Found a mail location that I was able to get Evolution's mail client to look for emails in. Still having nightmares getting fetchyahoo to run properly, however. This is a mildly infuriating process.

Debian :: Mysterious Folder Called "file:"?

Nov 19, 2010

A folder called "file:" appears periodically in my home directory.It contains an empty mirror of my home partition's directory structure down to my user folder, under which is an empty Desktop folder. Deleting it causes no obvious problems. My home partition has an XFS file system and I think this is somehow related to that since I've never seen it on an ext3 home partition.

Programming :: Make A Folder For Each File In A Directory Then Move The File Into It

Nov 29, 2010

Initially I thought - use a for loop with ls in it:


However this causes lots of problems (folders have extensions, I have duplicate folders, the names with spaces create a folder for each element of the name).

The contents of the folder is basically movies (some with subtitles). Some of the names have things like (original) or CD1 CD2 in them.
