I am using a touch command to setup a specific range of names, identifiers, etc. Now I am trying to move the files from a certain range to another directory I created. Sorry to post just can't remember how to do this but I know it is fairly simple for you guys. I have the output set as fred*_[!g].* and I am trying to get these files to my created directory.
I have encountered the following error, taylor@ubuntu:~/Projects/Slicer4/Applications/CLI/Multiply/Data$ mkdir Baseline taylor@ubuntu:~/Projects/Slicer4/Applications/CLI/Multiply/Data$ svn mv ~/Projects/Slicer4/Testing/Data/Baseline/CLI/MultiplyTest.nrrd Baseline svn: 'Baseline' is not a working copy
I am simply trying to move a file (MultiplyTest.nrrd) into a new directory (Baseline) in order to make the program (Slicer4) more organized. I googled my error and found a few like it but they all involved installing SVN so none of the solutions apply to me. And I have tried deleting Baseline and remaking it.
How do I copy and/or move files to the base folder of a user? I don't know what is is called, so I do not know what to put in the my file "?" command? I know you would normally put mv filename /directoryname, but what is the base username called?
I have limited experience in terminal, but let me first explain what I am trying to do to see if there is some easier way to do it. Basically I want to change the skin in aMSN. I downloaded the new skin but am unable to unzip or move it without /root permissions. I don't know how to acquire this without being in terminal. So I figured there had to be some way to go into the terminal and use it to move the unzipped folder from the desktop to the aMSN skins folder.
I feel like this is probably a dumb question but regardless, I don't know the answer and my eyes will start bleeding if I keep trying anymore. How do you move files between folders? Dolphin's layout (unless I'm not figuring it out, which is probably the case) doesn't seem to let you drag from one folder to another and there's no other pane to see another folder to drag to.I have an mp3 file in my download folder that I want to move to my music folder but I can't get it to move.
F15 Gnome edition. I am trying to move files, no big deal, except they keep moving themselves back again about 4-5 seconds later. This happens in nautilus, gnome-commander, or even at the command line. See the following output. The volume is NTFS, but I have ntfs-3g installed, and i've never had this problem before with NTFS volumes.
Code: [root@kermitfed store]# ls animalstore Cymande Groundation Mutiny
i want to copy a few files from my windows directory into the wine directory - its no big deal, just a few preference files so i dont have to set something up all over again. trouble is, i had the files copied, but i cant find the wine/ c: drive directory anywhere, anyone know where this can be found??
I get a SD card. Put in the SD reader. It's empty. I go to my super-important-pictures-to-a-monthly-relatory folder and select all files. Select them for MOVE. Paste them on the SD card. When the move/paste process is finished, i click on the "Eject" button on top of the SD card name. Card's ejected. I can't access the card anymore. I take out the card and put on my other computer. From 300 pictures, there are only 10 available, the remaining ones are there, but with 0bytes and unrecoveable. I panic. I go back to my main computer, my pictures are not there anymore. The pictures were on the Home folder. I panic again. I reset the computer and boot on the LiveCD. I install foremost, scalpel, photorec and about everything till my USB drive complains about being filled up. I run everything and I can't recover my files. I'm in the danger of getting fired. Things like that makes Windows sounds more appealing. When you securely remove a pendrive, things get REALLY pasted there before screwing everything up with a removal.
I have installed fedora 11, now i want to install touch driver for my dell 15 laptop. when i m moving cursur its moving but when i m clcking on touch pad to open anything its not opening, to open i have 2 select any file then i have to click touchpad keys.
I am trying to move my home directory from my install partition to a new partition. I cloned my installation from a previous ~78 gb HD using g4l to a new 250 GB drive. Now that I am using the new drive i created a new partition to used for files called "files". New partition is sda3 and the boot partition is sd1. I am trying to follow this guide [URL] but I am having no success.

I was moving a folder using Nautilus from an internal drive to a USB drive when suddenly, the power failed and the system rebooted before the UPS could go into backup. After I booted the PC again, half the files are are in neither of the drives. Do they go into a temporary folder first? There's nothing in /tmp and there's no Lost+Found folder. Is there anyway to get back those files? I'll always copy and delete from now on instead of moving.
I am setting up a Demo website that I am hosting in a Debian Lenny VM, I have installed Apache, mySQL, and PHP5 I know the php server is working because if I place an info php file I can see it in the browser. However, I downloaded phpfusion, as well as phpmyadmin and they are on my desktop, I open a superuser file browser (also added write access to /var/www to everybody and copied the files over as me) and copied over the files. Once in the www folder they are no longer seen as "valid" php files, if I try to access them with iceweasel, IE, Konquerer it asks me if I want to download the file. If I look at the files on my desktop they have different icons. I have attached a screenshot. I can't tell what the difference is, but obviously there is one otherwise the icons wouldn't be different. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here or a way to rectify it?
a lot of ubuntu apps seem to use sqlite3 to store the metadata. some noticable are firefox, shotwell and banshee.
can understand firefox keeping it separate but what if i want to share the music and photos between two users on the same machine.
i've set up a user group (call it "two") that has two users have set up a shared dir under /content/twousers set permissions chgrp & chmod & flicked the sgid bit so that everything is owned by the group.
can then run banshee (or shotwell for that matter) under the primary user (the group owner) and import data (music pictures et al).
try a second user on the same local machine and can see the directories and files - just cant see the metadata in the sqlite db.
any way to get these apps to look for their metadata in the shared directory - doesn't seem like sqlite has a distributed db node mechanism available.
is there any way of assigning a unix evironment variable to do some sort of "directory redirection" - for want of a better term - or an sqlite trigger in the db that connects to the common sqlite?
There are millions of files in many directories. Wherenver i try rm * or find or use xargs, they say 'argument list too long' and exit. How can i deleted files in a directory with so many files without deleting the directory itself.
I just installed the 11.4 version after using numerous previous versions. During this install the /usr directory was placed in a separate partition. How would I go about placing it in the partition with all the other running directories?
So when I try to move the home directory to another point, the sound stops working magically. Well actually the sound still works, but the controls don't work. Here is what I am trying to do.
My home directory is currently at /home/user I want it in another independent partition so I copy all the contents from /home/user to /dev/sda5 and then I mount /dev/sda5 to /home/user with rw permissions. Everything works perfectly, even my mozilla profile is copied and such, but the sound somehow disappears. When I comment out the line from fstab that mounts the the filesystem at /home/user, naturally things go back to normal because my folder at /home/user that was earlier becomes my home again. Things are working again. I can go back and forth, doesn't help.
Here are the specs, though they are irrelevant as everything including the sound works as long as I don't try to change my home dir. I'm using a Thinkpad T410. The destination filesystem btw is ntfs for my home directory, I know it's not suggested and most of you here will feel like lecturing me on how i shouldn't be using ntfs, but the point is I want to have my "Desktop" "Documents" "Pictures" "Videos" "Downloads" and everything in the same place for both windows and linux. So if moving the home directory to NTFS is strongly unadvisable, let me know how to move each of these folders to a desirable location. Here's what lspci has to say about audio device.

I am trying to get NFS mounts working properly using autofs, but I'm only getting partially results. I have an auto.master set up for indirect mounts and a list of map files for each entry. Forgot to mention that when I mount the directory using /etc/fstab or setup a direct mount in /etc/auto.master I can see files in the mounted directory...
I was nosing around in my /home folder and I noticed that the /.thumbnails directory had 38,000+ files in it. That number seem a bit excessive to me. Is there a way to limit the number of files that are allowed to be in that directory, and maybe delete the oldest files automatically when the directory reaches it's limit in order to make room for the new incoming files, so there are no "directory full" type of errors?
I am new in Linux and I need to extract alot of zipped files (different format (e.g tar.gz, tar.gz2)) which are in subdirs and I do not want to go to each subdir and extract each file because it will take alot of time. Is there away to extract all files that are existing in dirs and subdir with "for loop" or is there a script that can do the job automatically.
im switching. Vista is......yeah nothing needs to be said. Anyways i only have a few things preventing me from switching, biggest is Ubuntu is currently partinioned on 10gigs of my hard drive, the rest is mostly crap. All i want off vista is music, pictures, and a few videos. how do i get them onto the ubuntu side, or allocate more space to use a friends external harddrive. I know Wine is used for WoW(problem solved) but how about ventillo and the rarely played EvE online? also if possible i need to bring those over as well. other than than Ubuntu kicks the **** out of any windows or mac OS ive ever used. but thats not sayin a whole lot.
i want to copy files from a local ubuntu 10.04 machine to a remote XP machine on a LAN.using gnome terminal server client i'm able to copy text but not files!is this possible to achieve with terminal server client or do i need to use another program? if so whit and how?
After updating to 10.10, I started getting hard freezes on a regular (read: every 10 min.during use) basis. A bit of diagnosis showed me that it was only a problem during periods of intensive I/O activity (moving files, downloading, etc.).A bug report started with:BUG: soft lockup - CUP#0 stuck for 61s! [kswapd0:26]I reinstalled 9.04, and was able to successfully copy 15gb from one drive to another. I upgraded to 9.10, and copied it back.Upgraded to 10.04 and copied it again. 10.10, it copied a few mb and froze.
I have windows 7 and am soon to partition a large amount of my drive over to linux. I'd rather all of my computer be linux but I'm unsure how to get my files to my other partition, I don't have a thumbdrive and my email doesn't have much space. I have 300 gbs of room, 150 will be linux, how do I get the 100 gigs moved from my windows partition to my linux so I have more space on my linux.
