General :: Set A Pattern That Will Output A Filename Equal To The Original Filename In SoundConverter?

Jan 23, 2011

$ uname -a
Linux a #1 SMP Thu Dec 23 16:10:47 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version: :core-4.0-ia32:core-4.0-noarch


How can I set a pattern that will output a filename equal to the original filename? E.g.

something.mp3 → something.ogg

And why isn't this implemented in SoundConverter?

PS: {Filename} doesn't work.

Programming :: Sed - Save Output To File With Filename From Content Of Another File?

Feb 28, 2011

My employer issues pdf files with everyones work schedules. I copy the content and save it as plain text in a file called unformatted (hope to be able to automate this step someday). Im working on a SED script that reduces unformatted to only display what I want to see and saves the result in a file Ive named formatted. After that I have to manually copy formatted and save it with that days date as a filename e.g. 2011-02-25 or whatever day is scheduled in the pdf, for use on a mobile device (Nokia N900). I noticed that the date occurs on certain lines in the file so I added a line like:

sed -n 's/^Date: (201[1-9])/([0-1][0-9])/([0-3][0-9]).*/1-2-3/p' < unformatted >theDate
That creates a file theDate with the date in it that I wish to use as the filename for this particular instance. So I would like to skip the file formatted all together and have the sed- script write to a new file using the content of the Date as a filename, but how do I make that happen? And of course it would be more elegant if I could skip the intermediate theDate file as well.

How to proceed from here?

for i in *; do new=`echo "$i" | sed -e 's/^./U&/'`; mv "$i" "$new";done
I understand the 'for' kinda... but not the 'echo' or '`' and especially the sed command.

General :: What Is The Filename - Including Path - Of A WordPress Database

Jun 17, 2011

I have local Wordpress database that got corrupt as a result of an abrupt power outage (I wasn't even editing it!).

Since the system I am dealing with is pretty static (and old), I just want to restore that database file (or collection of files) from a nightly backup.

But I don't know which files I should be restoring. The WordPress blog in question is installed under a local user account in an old Linux server (FC4).

I checked the wp-content directory, but apparently this is not where the content is:

Any idea which file(s) I should be restoring and what their path is?

General :: Finding A Cmd That Will Kill All Processes That Are Accessing A Specific Filename?

Dec 16, 2009

I thought 'killall' would work, but I need to provide the "command" to kill. I'm really looking for a command that will kill all processes that have a particular file/directory open. Currently, my script fails on an 'umount' because there are several processes that have this filesystem open. The command 'lsof' is a good tool to determine which processes have a filesystem open, but I don't really want to write a script that parses through the 'lsof' output to capture PSIDs. Is there a linux command that can kill all processes that may have a particular filesystem open?

General :: Filename Beginning With Left Bracket: File Cannot Be Erased

Nov 28, 2010

Kernel, Slackware 12.0

I saved a page from Linuxquestions. It was saved under a filename beginning with '[' (left square bracket). And I now can't delete the file. Unfortunately I cannot send you a screenshot because opening a terminal in the GUI makes ls behave differently. I shall try to describe, assuming the file is in dir '.'. Also let '[SOLVED]foo.html' be the file in question:

$ ls
<the file is listed>
$ ls [*
/bin/ls: cannot access [*: No such file or directory

If I want the hdd to get rid of this file, what should I do? Any hint will be welcome.

General :: Ubuntu - Screenshot Tool That Saves Shots Directly Without Asking For A Filename

Jan 21, 2011

I know how to take a screenshot on my Ubuntu, but I want to take many screenshots within a limited time (taking screenshots of a single execution of a program which I can not pause). Is there a program that takes the "PrtScr" keyboard key in charge and just stores every screenshot without asking? The standard Ubuntu tool pops up a dialog to ask where I want to save the file, I would like a tool that doesn't ask and just saves on the Desktop or wherever as 00001.png 00002.png etc.
