General :: Move A File To Some Path And Create That Path When It Doesn't Exist?

Oct 8, 2010

I use this command:


find ./ -atime +360

to figure out the files that haven't been accessed since 360 days. The command above will return results like this:


... etc

I'm taking here about tins of directories, thousands of files. I'm looking to find a command that makes me able to move the results above to another path, and to create that path once it doesn't exist like below:


mv /uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext /old-files/uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext

But I want the executed command to create this path



If it doesn't exist.

General :: Forcing An Absolute Path Where A Relative Path Is Expected

Feb 21, 2011

I have a program that takes a relative path as input appends it to a some path string to get the actual path.

Now all I can input is the relative path. So if I want to go one level above my input will be ../mypath.

If I know the depth of the path used internally, I can use .. as many times to go to the root directory and then give the absolute path. But suppose I do not know the depth of the directory, can I construct a relative path string such that it considers it as a relative path. One way could be to have enough .. in the path string so that I can force an absolute path for some maximum depth of path.

Is there some path string syntax that I am not aware of but can achieve this?

General :: How To Change The PATH Variable

Mar 12, 2011

I was changing my sudoers file to give permission of using "sudo" command to all root commands, asking for the password. It works, it's fine. The problem I'm having is with the variable PATH to my user, I think.

In terminal:
normal user:


ataias@ataias-notebook:~/Downloads$ echo $PATH
super user:


root@ataias-notebook:~# echo $PATH

As many commands are in /sbin/, root can use them without writing "/sbin/" but I can't do the same cause it's not in my path.

while root do this:


shutdown -h now

I should do:


sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now

and I want to use only


sudo shutdown -h now

I want to change my user's path variable to make it equal to root's path. how to change it? I don't know many things of shell still.

Fedora :: Add Path In .bashrc By Commenting Out Old Path And Adding New One - Command Source ~/bashrc

Jun 14, 2011

When I add some path in .bashrc by commenting out old path and adding new one like this:

#EXPORT HOME_PLAY=/home/gem/old_play
EXPORT HOME_PLAY=/home/gem/play

After saving above changes, I enter the command: source ~/.bashrc Now if I do echo $PATH, the path shows both the old PLAY_HOME and new PLAY_HOME. This is really bad and messes up a lot of things in my project. This problem only goes away if I logout or reboot, a rather very long process. What is happening is that the old path is added to new path element and the old path includes the old path element you want to remove.

Fedora :: 12 And VMTools - The Path "" Is Not Valid Path To The Gcc Binary

Mar 23, 2010

running Windows 7 64bit with VMware Workstation 7.01-build 227600. I have some knowledge of Linux, I have installed f12 and have updated the system as of 03/22/2010. All updates completed successfully.

1) How do I install VMTools on the f12 (after mounting the CD/DVD tool package)

2) How do I update the gcc files it says are dependencies?

Here's what I get on installation:Before you can compile modules, you need to have the following installed...

kernel headers of the running kernel

and then I am prompted for this input from the install script:

Searching for GCC...
The path "" is not valid path to the gcc binary.
Would you like to change it? [yes]

and this is where I get stuck. How do I get around this or satisfy the requirements for the install?

Ubuntu :: Change Path Of Documents?

May 31, 2011

I have a dual boot Win 7 and Ubuntu 11.04 I just started setting up - and know almost nothing about Linux - I have all my data on separate drives from my OS drives, and would like to "arrive" at my "My Documents" file when i choose "Documents" in Ubuntu.

The location of "My Documents" is - /media/New Volume/My Documents (which I found by dragging the folder onto the terminal) not quite sure how to put in the right command - something like ln -s /media/New Volume/My Documents ~Documents - (but that isn't right and didn't work).I also want to do the same with Music, Pictures and Videos.

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Change Cgi-bin Path In Apache

Installed Apache and the default web root was /var/www I wanted to change the cgi-bin to somewhere within the /var/www but I cannot. It only works at /usr/lib/cgi-bin. I am trying to work out the Python CGI to be precise. It works at /usr/lib/cgi-bin but gives a 404 at other places like /home/aj/public_html/cgi-bin or /var/www/cgi-bin.I even tried it with putting a webroot directory in my home directory with a cgi-bin in it and made the changes accordingly in the conf. but the only way it works is when cgi-bin settings point to /usr/lib/cgi-bin otherwise it gives 404.

Server :: How To Change Postfix Return-path

Nov 29, 2010

I just set up an internal mail server for my office using Postfix, Dovecot and Squirrelmail. It works great except for one tiny problem. When I send mail, I address it to user@myoffice (no .com, .net, etc) and it works perfectly. However, somewhere in my work, I screwed up and for whatever dumb reason put somewhere in there and now the return-path always shows up as instead of just user@myoffice. Does anyone know how to fix the return-path so that when someone clicks reply it goes to user@myoffice? I've Googled and searched here without finding my answer, apologies if it's out there and I've just failed to see it. Rest assured I have done a couple hours of searching before finally asking for help.
