OpenSUSE :: Search Through Multiple PDFs In KDE Without Acroread?

May 30, 2011

Is it possible to do the following without using the Adobe reader?Adobe Reader (acroread) has a nice search feature that allows to search for strings inside all .pdf files in certain directories (e.g. show me all lines containing the word "recursion" in all PDF files in or below directory "/papers", which gives you a neat clickable list and the sentence for each hit).I much prefer Okular for viewing PDFs, but I am at a loss on how to duplicate the above feature without acroread under linux. The KDE FindFile apparently does not search inside PDFs, or at least not in an intelligible way. I do have Nepomuk running, hogging resources, but I don't understand how to query it - if this is possible at all. So what can I do besides using acroread?

General :: Based Tool To Chop PDFs Into Multiple Pages?

Sep 22, 2010

I've got a bunch of PDF files that have been produced two "real" pages to a single PDF page; I'd like to chop these in half and put each half on a separate page. Essentially, I need something thatdoes the exact opposite of pdfnup (or psnup). Google and apt-cache search are giving me no love.Platform is Linux, open source preferred; as I've got a great pile of these to do something that can be scripted (as opposed to a GUI) would be nice, so I can just give it a list of them and have it chew away.A pre-existing script isn't the only option, either; if there's sample code to manipulate PDFs in similar ways with a third-party library, I can probably hack it into doing what I want.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Open Webpage (and View Pdf) Without Acroread

Aug 17, 2010

Reading local pdf files with okular.

However, when I visited this site [IMG=][/IMG](consisting of a pdf file), I am unable to view the site.

Only, upon installing acroread, the site/file is then visible.

Note that BEFORE installing acroread, the site can be viewed with konqueror. [IMG=][/IMG]

How can Firefox be configured to view the site without installing acroread?

OpenSUSE :: Okular Crashes Opening Some Pdfs?

Jan 11, 2010

Like [Okular-devel]bug report okular started to crash when opening some pdf files after upgrade to kde 4.3.4 I found out that the probelm was not actually in kde but another update - at some point poppler (libpoppler4, libpoppler-qt4-3 and others) was updated to 0.10.1-1.7.1 but okular did not work fine with it any more. I solved the problem by downgrading poppler back to 0.10.1-1.4 (repo-oss) and all pdfs worked fine again. The bug report above states that newer okular would need actually newer poppler (0.12.x) but it is not provided at least for opensuse 11.1 yet.

OpenSuse 11.1 64 bit

OpenSUSE :: Pdfs In Firefox Don't Display Reliably?

Jul 22, 2011

Ok this is a problem that has dogged me for years but I was hoping it was fixed in 11.4. Using the acroreader plugin pdfs sometimes work but most often they result in a white or black blank screen and once one pdf has failed then they all fail until I restart firefox. It is a huge pain - under kubuntu I have used mozplugger to display pdfs with okular in the browser but this doesn't seem to be in the repos.

I don't think it is just me, all the people I know using suse seem to have this problem but it never gets fixed. how to get pdfs reliably displayed in firefox?

General :: Search For Text Strings In Multiple PHP Files?

Feb 3, 2011

Long story short, I got a folder with nearly 800,000 php files. I would like to search each file for a string and if it exists in that file, the file gets copied to another directory. Is this possible from the terminal? So far I got: grep -i -n -r 'ppr-1792' * | cp $1 move_to_here

But this obviously doesn't work. $1 needs to be the file name that contains matching text.

Ubuntu :: Search For Multiple File Extensions At Once In Gnome

Jan 1, 2010

Does anyone know of a way to perform a search for multiple file extensions at once in Gnome? I know that M$ Windows Explorer had this capability, but I'm just not sure how to do it in Gnome, or if it's possible. I just want to be able to perform searches for Video, Music, and Document file types, without having to perform a separate search for each file extension. Example: When doing a search for Video file types (.avi,.mp4,.mov,.wma, etc.), I would like to do one search for all files that have these file extensions, instead of doing one search for .avi files, a second search for .mp4 files, another for .mov files, etc.

General :: Search For A File In Multiple Machines Simultaniously?

Sep 15, 2010

Im new to the forum and fairly new to Linux as well. my apologies if this is posted in the wrong section. My problem is How can you search for a file in multiple machines (like a server farm) ? For example i log onto machine num1 and want to search for a file named "xxx.yyy" which may be in one of 4 machnies. What i do right now is manually log into each machine and run the find command. However i have heard that it is possible to do it via a couple of simple commands. I have looked into pssh and cssh as well as ssh tunneling (along with public key authentication to stop the machines requesting a password every time i log in) and unfortunately i was unable to find an answer.

General :: Emacs - Search And Replace Regex In Multiple Buffers?

Apr 7, 2009

I'm fairly comfortable with emacs but I can't seem to find how to do this. I deal with a lot of text files and find myself performing a lot of regular expression replacements to correct the formatting of the text -- or to extract certain tidbits of data from large ugly-looking files.

I know how to perform a regular expression replacement in one buffer at a time. But how do you perform a regular expression search and replace across all open buffers? I have found a method to perform a regex search and replace across a directory by marking files but I need to do it in the open buffers.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Search And Replace In Documents - Creating A Sed Script?

Jul 16, 2011

I want to do search and replace in multiple files. I've seen that it possible to create a sed script but I haven't got the talent to do it myselfWhatd is to locate all instances of a word - lets say 'day' - and replace it with for example 'night' in all odm-documents in a specific folder. It would be great if the search only matched whole words and was case sensitive.

General :: Search And Replace String Having Multiple Special Characters

Aug 26, 2009

Below is extract of my file:

What I need is to replace "--destination-path=" with "--destination-path=/home/dest"

i.e. desired output is ----destination-path=/home/dest

I could achieve it with below command

$cat outgoing-xfer|grep destination-path|perl -pi -e "s/destination-path=/destination-path=/home/dest/g"

But the problem is that in this case i just wanted to append "/home/dest" for which I could easily escape "/" with just two "", but I wonder if i have a long path like "/a/b/c/d/e/f/g/h/i/j" I will have to escape so many /. Is there any other way by which I can avoid escaping forward slash.

I tried following:

But receiving follo error

Bareword found where operator expected at -e line 1, near "s/destination-path=/'destination-path=/home"
syntax error at -e line 1, near "s/destination-path=/'destination-path=/home"
Bad name after dest' at -e line 1. tried with enclosing in double quotes as well but in vain

Ubuntu :: Use Multiple Words / Terms (boolean AND) With Gnome Search Tool

May 27, 2010

I just want to search file names, not their content.

Using gnome-search-tool, if I search for "word1 word3" I can't find "word1 word2 word3.txt" but I do find it (and too many others) if I just search for "word1"

I would have thought a boolean AND search would just be automatic, but I guess not. I've already come across searchmonkey, but I'm not smart enough to figure out how to set it up to do this - i.e. I don't want to have to use regular expressions or be typing "*" all over the place.

P.S. I do use google desktop search, but I hate using it as the results are way too narrow to be of any use and haven't been able to figure out how to widen it.

P.P.S. I also found this: In terminal type gconf-editor and find gnome-search-tool in the Apps. Then look for the field quick_search_second_scan_excluded_paths and change the slash to nothing, i.e. delete the "/".

It worked for my ubuntu 10.04 pc, but not this one (ubuntu 9.1) - so I thought maybe there's another way...

Fedora :: Any Pdf Viewer Other Than Acroread With Tabbing?

Jan 23, 2010

I want to be able to view multiple pdfs with tabs like Adobe Reader does but I'd prefer to use a native app like okular. Is there anything in Fedora other than acroread that can open multiple pdfs at a time in tabs?

In okular when you try to load more than one pdf, the newer one pushes out the first one.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Find Acroread In Package Manager / Get That?

May 23, 2010

Despite using Linux for a while I'm only just getting a taste of managing my very own system so please be gentle!

After trying a `blind' sudo apt-get install acroread which was unsuccessful I tried installing using the synaptic package manager, and couldn't find it in there either.

According to the software sources info I have both Universe and Multiverse switched on. I'm fairly sure one of my attempted permutations of `acro', `reader' and `acrobat' etc should have hit upon something so I assume there must be something more fundamental wrong!

Am using a newly installed Lucid Lynx 10.04

Software :: Acroread Fails To Print Under Cups / Sort It?

To whom it may concern.

If your acroread chokes with this error
"The print process returned an error. Please check whether the printer is connected to the machine."
check if "lpr" is available in your penguin.

Some distros may not have 'lpr' in cups package.
