General :: Show Permission In Octal Notation?

Feb 8, 2010

'ls -l' gives me the permissions in the long format - drwxr-xr-x format. Is there a way i can get the permissions in a form i can use in a bash script? the only form i can imagine of is the octal one... something like '755' for the above, but i dont know what would give me such an output.... are there other methods to consider while using (rather comparing) them in a script?

Programming :: Date Formatting From Stat Command?

Jul 23, 2010

I'm writing a script that takes the date attribute of a file when it was created and appending it to the name. I'm pretty close to what I need, but the date appears in yyyy-mm-dd format and I want it to read mm-dd-yyyy. What I have done so far is something like

for ((i=1;i<=50;i++));
do fdate=`stat -c %y Video Snapshot $i.png|awk {'print$1'}`;
mv Video Snapshot $i.png $newname;

This works decently but the date comes out in the yyyy-mm-dd format. How do I change it?

General :: Using Find Command To Print Timestamp

May 27, 2010

I am looking for a way to print the timestamp of a directory using find command. I can do that for a file, but for a directory, it is printing the contents of the directory as well. Lets say there is a directory called doc, and there are more than one occurrences of that directory.

find . -name "doc" -type d -exec ls -l {} ;

This is printing the contents of all the files under doc directory as well.

Feb 5, 2010

I have a script that is in Unix. I wanted to know is there any difference between output of ls command in unix and linux

In Unix

According to above output nothing will be displayed for

Jul 17, 2010

If I try the sudo mv command on the file listed below I get the error listed. I am confused. It is my file & I have permissions. Somehow a slew of files on my system are now showing this way. This seems to correspond when I ran rsync from my netbook to sync it up with my desktop where I am having a problem.

sudo rsync -av --delete --rsh=ssh joe@ /home/joe/Pictures/

General :: Printing From Command Line Won't Work - Just Sits In Print Queue

Apr 3, 2011

CUPS was not originally installed on my server, I have installed it but cannot print to my network printer. On my laptop, I can... they are both running the same version of Debian. What could be missing?

Here are some details...

I have two computers running the same version of Debian. One is a server with no GUI and the other is my laptop with GDM installed. My laptop (which prints with no problem) is connected via Wifi. My server is connected directly to the router via Ethernet. I cannot print from the server.

The printer is a Canon Pixma MP495 that connects to the router via Wifi. I have downloaded drivers for the printer from [url] and installed them successfully using dpkg on both computers.

Right now I have a regular text file that I am using for a test page. To print from my laptop (with success) I type:


This does not work from the server. What could I be missing?

lpq run on server:

Fedora Hardware :: Print - Client-error-document-format-not-supported ?

I have just installed a Canon Pixma iP2200 on Fedora 14. The installation 'seemed' to go OK but whenever I try to print anything I get the following error:

"There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-document-format-not-supported'."

I have done a bit of searching and the only advice i could find is to uncomment some lines in /etc/cups/mime.convs and /etc/cups/mime.types but I don't have either of those files!
