Ubuntu :: Script To Rename File Based On Mime Type?

Jan 9, 2011

I have a folder containing the output from Windows XP "File and Settings Transfer Wizard" - the folder refuses to be imported into any flavour of Windows and the original windows system is no more - so I found a little program called fastconv [URL] which extracted all the files but fails to rename them - been working on this solidly for 3 days now, there are 47,000 files in 20gb, so naturally the customer is very concerned.

I noticed that Ubuntu cleverly recognises the type of file, assuming its looking at the contents of the file rather than the extension.

Is there any way I can automatically rename the files based on the mime type?

Ubuntu :: Edit Mime Types To Remove A File Type Association?

Oct 30, 2010

I installed a trial copy of Anquet Map V06 under Wine then decided to remove it. Afterwards I could find many remnants associated with the Anquet program which I've deleted. Except what remains is an association between my .gpx files with Anquet and that includes and any new gpx file I download. My interpretation is that during the install process an association has been created with the gpx file type and the Anquet map program. This is what I want to stop. If I download a .gpx file and look at it's properties I see- Type: GPX File -Anquet Mapsv06 (application/x-wine-extension-gpx) I found this file and it's contents-

<mime-type type="application/x-wine-extension-gpx">


Running "sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime" and rebooting didn't remove the association. How can I stop the Anquet name making as association with my gpx files?

Ubuntu :: Changing File System Type To Another Filesystem Type - Does It Effect On Data?

Feb 4, 2011

In my system around 73gb(pc-desktop) i have,1 primary partition(windows)-25gb, 1-extended partition(remaining gb) 3 logical partitions were there in (under) extended partition in one of the logical partition is d:drive. in my hard disk d: drive is -/dev/sda5

previosly i was fat -file system , (d:drive-/dev/sda5), i remember i changed the d: drive(d:drive-/dev/sda5) file system to ext4file system ,with following command using terminal

After doing(changing the file system)this one ,i couldnt see the d:drive data

By doing that

1q) Did i reformatted the partition? i think the new filesystem(ext4) has no knowledge of the data that was on it when it had a FAT filesystem.

2q) How to do undo operation,i tried to change the filesystem type to fat/ntfs in terminal using command --sudo mkfs -t FAT /dev/sda5.

Result:its showing text message-'mkfs.FAT: No such file or directory'(not in single quote)

I had very imp data in d:drive

Programming :: Get Program Based On Mime-type In C

Feb 10, 2010

I need to launch programs in my program and the program can be a script, a Linux executable or even a Windows executable. The first thing i tried is to use xdg-open from my program, but i can't pass arguments to it, otherwise it would have worked perfectly. Is there maybe a way to determine which program is set as default according to the mime-type of the program i want to launch? I also tried kfmclient and gnome-open, they don't allow arguments either.

Slackware :: Mime Type Associations For Office Files

Oct 22, 2009

I installed MS office 2003 via wine on Slackware 13. I need to know how to associate files with the right Office (msword, msexcel, msppt) program. I made launcher scripts that can launches office files from the CL, but the user on this computer will want to be able to just double click a file in dolphin and have the right office program come up.For some reason all office files show up as x-ole-storage instead of application/msword or something similar. So, even if I tell Excel to associate with that file, it will do it for Word and PowerPoint files as well.

.ppt, .doc, and .xls extensions were configured via the KDE file associations panel, but this did not help. I played around with the raw files under ~/.local/share, but I did not find the solution.The version of WINE is 1.1.24 (built from SBo SlackBuild).

General :: Executing The Default Application Assigned To A File Type?

Dec 10, 2010

Using gnome terminal (Ubuntu 10.10), is there a way to execute the default application associated to a file type, only by typing its name, as it is possible with Windows ?

For example, say I create a mime type associated to every file with the pattern *.abc. Lets say I associate this file type to application 'my_app'.

If I have file '' in current folder, what I want is that when I enter only '' at the prompt, it executes 'my_app' feeding it with '' as first argument. (assuming of course 'my_app' is in the path)

General :: Accidentally Type Concatenate Large File On Remote System

May 6, 2010

Every once in a while on a computer I'm ssh'd into, I will accidentally type "cat largefile.txt" and my screen will start rushing with text for the next 10 minutes. I'm always working in a screen session, so my current solution is to just log out and then log back in, and since it can go 100X faster when I'm logged out, it'll finish in the short time it takes me to type my password in again. Is there a better way? Either involving the fact I'm in a screen session? Or a way to do this within SSH? What doesn't work: detaching from the screen session (doesn't respond until file is done outputting) trying command to move to a different window in the screen session (also doesn't respond) typing ctrl+C to kill cat command (also doesn't respond, probably because the command is done and the buffers just have to catch up).

General :: GRUB Legacy - Unable To Determine The File System Type?

Dec 8, 2010

I had only Arch on an HDD.sda2 was "/".Now it's with Windows XP and sda2 is not a root any more but a container partition wich has sda{5,6,7} in it. I configured the dual boot and it works. It finds Arch and boots it, but not completely. Stops after some time and says: unable to determine the file system type of /dev/sda2. FSTAB is configured, sda{5,6,7} are on their places. So I can't boot Arch. XP boots correctly. What do I do with this error?Also it says: try adding rootfstype=your_filesystem_type to kernel command line.
