General :: Listing Filenames Without The Directories?

Oct 3, 2010

list filenames one-per-line, in BASH without including directories. I think he was either wrong or making that up. There is a way to list just the names and one per line but there aren't any arguments I can find that can be used to exclude directories.


IFS=', '; files=`ls -m`; for i in $files; do if [ -f $i ]; then echo $i; fi; done That does only use ls as a command, however he said his GSI thought he could do it without all that...

suppose in my current directory, I have 50 sub-directories. Now, I am interested only in about 20 of those sub-directories (whose names match a pattern). I would like to recursively list the contents of these 20 sub-directories. How do I do that ? I would like to do this in Solaris 10 and Linux(RHEL 5.x).

Is the command "ls -d" meant for only listing directories? Because i tried it and it ALWAYS display just a blue dot. If not what is the correct way to show only directories? I.e. MSDOS equivalent "dir /ad".

Debian Configuration :: Proftpd-mod-mysql And No Listing Directories

Apr 20, 2011

Im having proftpd 1.3.3a standalone on squeeze with mysql backend. It all works fine with one little problem. When i log in to directory, there is nothing in it - knowing there is shed load of files. Directories are simply not being listed. Im logging in as group member and directory permissions are rwxr-xr-x. In addition to that when i try to create new directory connection is being lost and client attempts to reconnect. After successful reconnection, connection gets lost and over and over again until i abort.

General :: Multiple Users To Create Directories Over SFTP So The New Directories Keep The Same Permissions?

May 15, 2011

I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.

I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.

I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?

General :: How To Use Rsync When Filenames Contain Double Quotes

Jan 29, 2011

I am trying to synchronize the content of the directory my_dir/ from /home to /backup. This directory contains a file which name has a double quote in it, such as to"to. Here is my rsync command:
rsync -Cazh /home/my_dir/ /backup/my_dir/

And I get the following message:
rsync: mkstemp "/backup/my_dir/.to"to.d93PZr" failed: Invalid argument (22)
For info, rsync works well when the synchronized filenames contain single quote, parenthesis and space. Thus, why is it bugging with a double quote?

I have a ton of files that are timestamped directories. These all look like2011-06-24_13.53.36 // a directory name for june 24th, 1:53:36 pmI have thousands of these directories. I want to do operations on some of the older ones. Let's say I give it a string for date time that matches that exact format, like i'll give it2011-06-25_00.00.00 // june 25th, 12amI want to find all the directories BEFORE my time. So if i give the string for 12am on june 25th, i want to find all the directories before then.If not i can find EVERY directory i have like this and then filter after wards. The created/modified dates are not tied to the actual timestamp im looking for (that would make this easier)

General :: Double Quotation Marks Allowed In Filenames?

May 19, 2010

I tried to move a file from my desktop to another folder; moving it was not allowed, for some reason. Neither was opening it and saving a new copy in the target folder. Would that be because the filename contains double (") quotation marks? Are they not allowed? The filename is Edit of Bob's "Lady Liberty" Article.doc. [Filename not enclosed in quotation marks here, to avoid confusion.]I just changed the double quotation marks to single quotation marks; that solved everything.

General :: Bash Scripting - Removing Strings From MP3 Filenames

Oct 5, 2010

I've been surfing and searching the net quit a while now to make my own script, but I haven't been really successful ever since I want to make a script which can remove strings from my mp3 collection (file names).

For example:
101-bob_sinclar_feat_sean_paul-tik_tok_(radio_edit).mp3 --> bob_sinclar_feat_sean_paul-tik_tok_(radio_edit).mp3
10-Young Jeezy-Lose My Mind (78 Bpm) (Repack).mp3 --> young_jeezy-lose_my_mind.mp3

Now the problem is how can I remove the strings like:
101 & 10 (dynamic)
(%%% Bpm) (dynamic)
(Repack) (static)

General :: Delete Files With Complex Filenames With A Script?

I am trying to write a bash script to delete a file where I know the first part of the name, but it has spaces in it. The second part of the file name is a random set of characters. I was hoping to use a wildcard for this, but I keep getting a error massage saying file or directory does not exist. This is a simplified form of my script:

MYFILE=This is my file
rm "$MYFILE*"
The file may be something like "This is my file.123abc456.suffix"

General :: Convert Windows Filenames To *nix Notation - Use It On Shell With Md5sum?

Aug 25, 2011

I have some checksums.md5 verification files from an ntfs external drive, but using windows notation: instead of /, spaces between file names (not escaped), reserved shell characters (like (, &, ', to name a few). The checksums.md5 has a bunch of checksums and filenames:


I want to use this checksums.md5 to verify the files that I've copied to my machine: but I'm on a Linux, so I need to convert the names inside checksums.md5 from Windows to Linux to use the md5sum utility from the shell. The first line in my example would become: f12f75c1f2d1a658dc32ca6ef9ef3ffc My Windows & Files (2010)/[bak]/testing.wmv Is there some application for this (converting a file listing, from windows cmd notation, to linux shell notation) or will I need to create a bash script using sed that just "replaces" what is "wrong" with the filenames

General :: Lower-casing Filenames On Fat32 External Drive

Jan 6, 2010

I have an external harddrive which is fat32 (which was filled when I was on a windows system) with a lot of files on (> 200gb) which have mixed case filenames. I wanted to write a script to rename them all to lowercase however when I did I got an error saying that the filenames are the same (which I guess is true as FAT is case-insensitive). My issue is that I'm mounting this from a linux box now so it would make it a lot easier if things were lower case! I've already run a script to replace all spaces with underscores.

I know I could do this by first going through and renaming everything with a prefix and then renaming it back again (ie, rename File.Jpg to xFile.Jpg and then a second rename to strip that x off and rename lowercase to file.jpg) however I find this approach a bit messy and would prefer to do it all in one pass. Other than that, could I change the drive to ext4 without losing any files on it? The drive has a hell of a lot of stuff on there which is an archive of many years of files - I'd be absolutely gutted if I lost everything.

I think that the file /var/run/utmp might have something to do with this, but it's not writeable by non-root users (permission 644). I'm fairly certain that this can be done by a non-privileged user (because someone told me that they were able to do so), but I don't know how they did it and can't ask them right now.

General :: Listing All Linked Files

Jan 21, 2010

I can't seem to find a way to do this, so maybe it's not actually possible, but I was wondering if there was a way to list all files that link to a file.

For example.

touch a
ln a b
ln a c

I want to find out what files link to a (not symlinks, mind you), assuming that this is more complicated (they are spread around to different directories).

I kind of understand about the filesystem storing links in one area and data in another, so I understand it probably takes more work to find a link from a file location than the other way around.
