How can I create multipart rar file in Linux using the official console rar client?RAR 3.90 Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Alexander Roshal 16 Aug 2009Shareware version Type RAR -? for helpI want a multipart rar with each part size being 150 MB.
I can do:mkdir messages and then: touch messages/hello.txt Is there a command that will do both - create the directory if it doesn't exist, and then the empty file? Something like: touch -p messages/hello.txt
i need to write a short script that will compress a specific folder that`s on the Desktop (and all it`s content) and also will encrypt it with a password that is inside the script --->meaning it wont ask for a password+verification when compressing+encrypting
I am trying to create a self extracting file for Windows from Ubuntu 10.04 using 7zip.
I tried these commands:
7zr -sfx7z.sfx a output.exe *.txt 7zr -sfx/usr/local/etc/7z.sfx a output.exe *.txt
Both show this error:
Error: can't find specified sfx module
System error: E_FAIL
I have all the .sfx modules on /home/username/.sfx/ because I use them previously with "rar" and it worked fine, but it's not working for 7zip. I also copied 7z.sfx to /usr/local/etc/ to test the second command like shown here but I get the same error.
As a strategy for learning linux I have decided to adopt using a lean windows based approach. I want to focus on command line machine system, network basics, and file management knowledge. In other words find out how desktop manager does it's business, so I know how to master my machine, but by and large once I have made my choices, leave it alone to do just that.
I figure I should know how applications are internally configured etc., but I also figure an apps GUI and config choices should take care of installations, and program usage as in M$ windows. Surely taking care of an applications dependencies are the responsibility of the developer, are they not?
I am working my way through "Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition (Version 1.0.0)" right now for an overall viewpoint. Can anyone suggest a specific source for a point by point explanation of the command basis of a generalised "desktop management" application (KDE,LXDE)? Better yet would be if it had some parallel comparison of the varied approaches taken by different distributions of linux.
A secondary question, is that allowed? Up to a certain point in Ms windows, a thorough knowledge of DOS 6.xx would theoreticaly enable one to more or less duplicate the actions of the windows overlay. Is there a basic distribution (or subset in all of them maybe?) of linux that would be consistent with that paradigm? What would be analogous to DOS batch files, or GM-Basic? Oh! that's 3.I am certainly appreciating the depth of this forum, and the breadth of knowledge among you forumite's. Reading it is time well spent.
My .jar file needs and uses some files in the same directory it's in (everything, including the jar was unzipped into said directory). It runs perfectly when I do java -jar file.jar in the command line, but there's trouble when I double-click the file when running from the file system manager. I've tried a custom command under properties ie java -jar, but the problem is that the .jar file doesn't seem to be able to use any of the files in the same directory. When running, the jar can't find any of the files that it needs.
I use putty to get to my RHEL 5.3 workstation from my Windows laptop.
Typically, if I want a new terminal on my windows 7 workstation from another terminal or mc, I have to type start and I will see a new terminal window running the default shell.
QUESTION : What is the equivalent command in RHEL 5.3 (and or solaris) to create a new terminal window from the command line ? I will be entering this command from the shell prompt or mc's command line.
In Windows, if I want to start another terminal and in that terminal, I want to run a program, I can do "start program.exe arg1 arg2". this will create a new terminal window and runs program.exe in that terminal window. I don't have to create a terminal and then in a separate step run the program. How can I do this in Linux ?
I am currently interning at a place and my job is to essentially learn UNIX. My supervisor gives me problems here and there to help guide me with my learning but for the most part I'm doing this all by self-teaching myself. Needless to say I have run into a few obstacles...for instance-Create a *one* line command that, using tar, will collect the full /usr/local directory (you need to run this as root again) and copy the whole /usr/local structure under /optFor example /usr/local/bin/hello will become /opt/local/bin/hello, etc. I want this as follows:1. /usr/local is collected by tar, but the output of this tar command is its stdout.. what you get from the previous stdout, you compress with gzip and send it to stdout again 3. get this output and decompress with gzip.. get this output and pipe to tar in a way that will extract the tree under /opt.If anyone knows how I could go about doing this, please let me know, or at the very least point me in the right direction. What I've got so far (which could be completely wrong) is:tar cvf - usr/local/ | gzip -c - | gunzip -c - | tar xvf -in theory I feel like this should work (except for extracting the tree under /opt...i'm kinda stuck there)
I work with a Debian Squeeze on my laptop and I have a 160GB external hard disk. My hard disk was formatted FAT32, but I decided to format it using ext2. I formatted it using fdisk from command line and everything went well. Unfortunately, when I mount my hard drive(which is auto-mounted from Debian) it has got root both as owner and group. Then I can't write to it because I have no permission to do that. Is there a setting to create an ext2 partition which has as owner the logged system user in order to have right permission every time.
I love Ubuntu Linux - especially the commmand line. But I have to admit that, at least for now, Windows is more user-friendly - there's more software for it, more drivers, and more stuff just works.
Knowing that Mac is built on Unix makes me wonder if it's the sweet spot between them. But I wonder: how similar is the Mac command line to Linux's bash? Could I pick right up with using vim and bash scripting and git, etc? Would common commands like changing directories be different? Does anybody know an online "compare and contrast" resource?
I have a project due for my Intro to C++ class and we are suppose to generate a file listing that will take an input of a C++ source code with .cpp extension and make a copy of it with a .lst extention that will have a line number preceding each and every line.
I just started using ubuntu after being a long time windows user.
what i find really interesting is that in command line, i can type many programs and commands, eg firefox can be run via command line from anywhere. In windows cmd prompt, im used to having to run the .exe file by first navigating to it, then being able to run the .exe.
what i wanna know is how does linux know all the programs at the command line?

Which software of Linux to use for command line running? Since I am using MySQL to run from Linux and want to run Linux, which software to download in Linux? There are multiple ones. Can I run .sh scripts and learn how to operate on Linux using the command line? Also use MySQL as backend on Linux?
I have a Debian Linux desktop. I want to change the screen's brightness without pressing the brightness button of my monitor. How can I do this? is this possible in command line or is there an application to be installed?
I have a jar, and I need to replace a class in it, at this moment, I can only open it with "archive manager" and then drag and drop the new compiled class into the jar, but I think this is really boring, if I can do with with just a command ?
