OpenSUSE Install :: Batch Rename Files With Special Characters?

Dec 10, 2010

I have about 300 files that need renaming, because the file system does not display the French characters properly. The dodgy letter in question has been replaced by a "question mark in a black diamond" symbol.No way of renaming, other then using mv in the Konsole has worked. Is there any way, script or program out there, that will do a batch rename?

Ubuntu :: Use PyRenamer To Identify And Rename Files With Reserved Characters In The File Name / Expression

Aug 2, 2011

I'd like to use pyRenamer to identify and rename files with reserved characters in the file name. The files came from windows where I'm guessing the characters didn't cause problems. For example, I want to replace the ? (question mark), ' (single quote), etc. I tried using the escape () character before the special character in the replace field on the substitutions tab, but for some reason I don't believe that method was identifying the special characters. What is the correct way to identify a special / reserved character within a file name and replace it?

Software :: DigiKam: Pictures Disappear After Using Batch Rename?

Jan 17, 2010

I selected 10 photos and used the batch rename feature (Batch -> Rename Images). Once I had the settings set and accepted the changes, the tool successfully renamed all 10 photos. The problem is I can't see them in digiKam anymore. It's just an empty album. When I navigated to the folder using Dolphin, all the pictures were still there and they were properly renamed. Back in digiKam, it's just an empty folder. I tried moving the photos to a different directory and then adding that folder to digiKam, but it still showed up as an empty folder.

I don't know what to do. How can I get this app to see my pictures again?

Ubuntu :: KDE 4.4 - Compose Key And Special Characters

Feb 15, 2010

I am trying to type German Umlaut letters on an English keyboard using kde 4.4. For some reason I seem unable to figure out how to do that (I have just recently switched to kde, was using gnome before). I have looked through various threads and the kubuntu wiki [URL], but can't get the compose key to work. In gnome I used to type "AltGr" plus "[" followed by a vowel and thus get my Umlaut - before I fiddled with the system settings this worked in kde, but only in firefox & Open Office (I assume they are gtk apps).

Since it did not work in Kmail, I went to the system settings, set up a ComposeKey (AltGr, but also tried rightWin), but it doesn't change anything for the kde applications. It only means that the old key-combination now stopped working in firefox and OO. In the system setting of kde 4.4 I can't see the options to enable xkb-options, but I assume the advanced options of the keyboard layout are xkb-options of previous kde releases. I unticked the box 'reset old options', but nothing changed. I type a lot of German text, so using a character map is not an option.

General :: KDE - File Names With Special Characters ?

Feb 20, 2010

I am running gentoo openbox(rox file manager and desktop) I installed Digikam and Amarok. But I have problems with files which include special character in their names(such as �,�, �,ğ... ) The files are shown with strange and weird characters in the file dialogs of Digikam and Amarok.

I don't have this problem in other applications. I can create files with special character included. I think some settings do not agree with KDE4. How can I solve this problem? Does anyone have an idea? I also installed KDE systemsettings program but could not find a relevant config option for character encoding.

But none of those works...I think probably because GREP doens't like the special character > in the middle of the serach pattern.

At the end I just need to now if GREP found the pattern in the file or not, so it should give me a 0 or a 1 back, once I check the value of the variable "?" after using the grep command.

General :: Using Sed To Replace String With Special Characters In XML File?

Apr 29, 2011

I am having difficulty getting sed to replace a string of text in an XML file, despite the fact that I have no trouble using grep to find that same string. Since the new string and old string to be replaced contain a lot of special characters, I thought it best to store them in variables as opposed to using a slew of backslashes:

OLD_STRING='<property name="webServiceHost">${jboss.bind.address}</property>'
NEW_STRING='<!--<property name="webServiceHost">${jboss.bind.address}</property>-->'

General :: Tar Fails To Extract Archive Containing Special Characters?

Jun 5, 2011

The command tar -xvf wpa_tables.tar gives this error

tar: ./xai-0/334Regency: Cannot open: Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Obviously the backslash is giving tar some problem, but I've been all over the docs and can't figure out how to either make it skip this file or interpret the character literally. Here's my command history to show some of the options I've tried which don't work.

tar --no-wildcards -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --exclude ./xai-0/\334Regency -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --exclude "./xai-0/\334Regency" -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --ignore-command-error -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --ignore-failed-read -xkvf wpa_tables.tar
tar --transform 's/\/slash/g' -xvf wpa_tables.tar ./xai-0/\334Regency

I'm totally out of ideas at this point and would welcome some input from more experienced members.
