Fedora :: Strip Current Date With SED?

Nov 9, 2009

I have some text based reports in which I would like to strip the "Current Date" from and replace with equivalent number of empty spaces, for every occurrence.For example, here is what I need to strip:

Date: 11/09/09

If I manually run the following SED command, it works great, however I cannot seem to find a way to use the actual "date" command within SED, to get the desired results.

WORKING: sed -i -e 's/Date: 11/09/09/ /' myfile

I've been messing around with various attempts to do this using the "date" command within SED, but I just can seem to get it right. I've also attempted defining variables which call separate "date" commands for day, month, year and inject them via standard variable calling, echoing variable, expanding variable with brackets, etc... Here are a few of the SED command attempts I've tried:


sed -i -e 'sate: `date +%D`: :' myfile
sed -i -e "s/Date: `date +%d`/`date +%m`/`date +%y`/ /" myfile
sed -i -e 's/Date: `date +%d`/`date +%m`/`date +%y`/ /' myfile
sed -i -e 's/Date: $(date +%D) / /' myfile

I need to replace it with the equivalent number of spaces, as I'm going to be overlaying a PCL Logo here and need to keep the structure of the rest of the file. Cannot have the remaining portion of the line shifting left.

General :: Windows OS User For At Least 18 Years?

Aug 4, 2010

I have tried using Linux several times but to be truthful it just seemed to be so complicated when compared to windows OS's That it just never really appealed. The one thing That really annoys me about Linux is that Widows makes it so easy to connect to the internet and even if you run into a problem nearly every Provider offers support for Win users.

My provider BigPond (Australia) Solves all Win OS problems with just a simple phone call, but when I say LInux " Sorry We don't support that system." is the reply. So! My cable modem is supplied by BigPond but when I try to log in using Ubuntu 10.4 : Nothing works. Linux just can't recognise the hardware and no one seems to be able to tell me how you you link Ubuntu to your normal Internet hardware.

Why is it so difficult for Linux users to do what is just a breeze for Windows users. Until Linux can match Microsoft in user friendly competition, it will always run a dismal Last to Windows in any form and Win 7 is just such an easy to use service. So is there anyone out there who can tell me how I get Ubuntu to recognize my Modem and at least get me started?

General :: Use Date With Touch To Create New File With Date Based Name?

Mar 12, 2010

I am using CRON to create a new, blank file, every minute, in a specific location on my web server. After web searching, and reading man pages, I get the impression that the following command is supposed to work:touch /home/mydomain/var/folder/attachments/`date +%H%M`.txtThis should give me a new file with a file name that is the current hour and minute.However, when executed, the CRON mailer reports:touch /home/mydomain/var/folder/attachments/`date +/bin/sh: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching /bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of fileSo, it looks like shell is seeing the plus (+) sign as an EOFObviously, nothing get created.What would be the easiest, single line command to create an empty file, at a given location, with a time based file name

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Logout System Sound Since Years?

Apr 20, 2010

Since I can remember, Logout sound never plays in Ubuntu, or maybe the problem is Compiz + Gnome. A very similar problem occurs in KDE (Kubuntu), but here the problem is No Login sound.

Gnome + Compiz: Good Login sound, No Logout sound.
KDE: No Login Sound, good Logout sound.

So, what is the problem with Login/Logout sounds in Linux now? I have used the last 4 Ubuntu releases, and Logout sound never plays in Ubuntu(gnome).How could a fix that?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu LTS Software Upgraded Over The 3 Years?

Apr 25, 2010

Is it still true that if I install the LTS version of Kubuntu that I'll be stuck with the versions of software that it comes with? Or, will the versions of the software it comes with be updated during the three years it's good for?

Can I convert my present install of Kubuntu 9.10 to Kubuntu 9.10 LTS by installing Synaptic and clicking on Settings>Updates>Long>term>support>releases>only? I'd prefer using the 10.04 LTS version but not if I'll be stuck with software I can't upgrade.

Ubuntu :: Organize Folder With Images By Date Taken Rather Than Date Edited?

Aug 1, 2011

As a photographer I'm constantly taking photos and storing them in folders. Now occasionally I'm using two cameras (either for different settings or an assistant is also taking photos) which means that for one event I can have differently named images.Both cameras have the same time set (which always helps in Windows) but in Ubuntu when trying to sort my folder by date taken I can't.The options I'm given are to sort them: Manually, by Name, by Size, by Type, by Modification date and by Emblem.Now none of those are helpful to me once I've done a few edits to the images.So please if anyone knows, how do you organise a folder with images taken on different cameras by Date Taken rather than Date Edited?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Digikam - Renaming On Import - "Create Date" Versus "File Modification Date"

Jan 24, 2011

I just switched from a basic digital camera to a more advanced one that stores both Jpeg and Raw (.Nef - it's a Nikon) files for me.When importing files in Digikam, I rename the files so that they start with Date and Time. Example: 20110121-223748.JPG for a photo taken on Jan 21st 2011 at 22:37:48.I was a bit surprised when importing both the JPEG and the Raw version of the same photo, that the filename is different by a few seconds (no constant offset, sometimes they are the same):


I did some "research" by looking at the exif data of both files (using "exiftool 20110121-223748.JPG" from the command line). Here is what I got back

(amongst other data):20110121-223748.JPG
File Modification Date/Time : 2011:01:21 22:37:48+01:00
Modify Date : 2011:01:21 22:37:48
Date/Time Original : 2011:01:21 22:37:48


So it seems that Digikam is using the "File Modification Date/Time" (different in the Jpeg's and Raw's of my camera) rather than the "Create Date" (the same for both Jpeg and Raw). (The few seconds difference in "File Modification Date/Time" between the two versions of the same photo is probably due to the time that my camera needs to write away the data on the SD memory card. I guess.) Is there a way to have Digikam use the Create Date? (Or the Date/Time Original?)

PS: I'm on Ubuntu 10.04LTS, using DigiKam 1.2.0
