Fedora :: Zenity - Bash: [/code]: No Such File Or Directory

Apr 9, 2010

Awhile back, PabloTwo pointed me to zenity as a way to create bash scripts with changeable parameters. That thread is here, for anyone interested in reading about it: [URL] Anyway, my problem is that I'm trying to capture input that contains double-dashes ("--") but zenity (or maybe or it's bash???) complains with the following error message:

"This option is not available. for all possible usages.
bash: [/code]: No such file or directory"

Here's an example of what I'm doing:


# Select the time of day
Flytime=`zenity --list --text="Select the Time" --radiolist --height=300 --width=300 --hide-column=2 --column="Select" --column="Code" --column="Time of Day"
"" "--timeofday=real" "Local Time"


What I want to accomplish is for the variable $Flytime to contain either "--timeofday=real" or "--timeofday=dawn" (without the quotes) depending upon which radio button is selected. I have tried escaping "--timeofday" (e.g. "--timeofday" and even "--timeofday") but that's not working.

Programming :: Zenity - Hiding Hidden Files From File Selections?

Sep 12, 2010

I'm using zenity 2.28.0 in a bash script (under kde4) to select multiple files in a directory. It works fine, but always defaults to showing hidden files. How can I get it to hide hidden files by default?

I know about toggling them on and off with Ctrl-H, but I would prefer not to have to use that. I have my options set so that dolphin and konqueror do not show hidden files by default. I even tried adding shopt -u dotglob to my script. zenity invocation (extracted from a more complex statement): zenity --title "Select Print Files to Delete" --file-selection --multiple

Debian Multimedia :: Make A Dialog With Zenity Which Would Show An Updating List?

Jan 4, 2011

Is there a way to make a dialog with zenity which would show an updating list? Zenity does it with progress, but I didn't figure out if it's possible to do it with the list. I.e. for example, I want to monitor something, and update the dialog with new list periodically. Is it even possible? zenity can wait for data from stdin, but it just adds stuff to the list. May be there are some control sequences which clear the list in the dialog?

For example:

{ echo "Foo"; sleep 2; echo "Bar"; } | zenity --list --title='Dynamic list?' --text='Some data' --column='values'

How can I instead of adding Bar, replace the Foo with it?

Programming :: Bash: Populate A List Of Arbitrarily Named Files?

Mar 14, 2010

How to build a list of files under a directory that may have any permissible characters in the name, that is anything except NUL? The only possible (?) bash data structure to contain a list of such names is an array because NUL cannot be used as a list item separator so no X-separated list can safely be used; there is no "X" that might not be part of a file name. OK -- but how to populate such an array? Here's what I've tried.


# Set up test files
dir=$(mktemp -d "/tmp/${0##*/}.XXXXXX")
touch $dir/foo $dir/bar

Programming :: BASH Read Text List Zip Files Into A Single Archive?

Jul 22, 2010

AKA "zipping on the fly .. the slow-as-molasses way." The list includes full pathnames to each file, and they're all in subfolders of the same parent folder (which, unfortunately, is not the root folder of the drive or system on which the files reside). A cleaned-up and radio-ready portion of the list looks like




What I'd like to be able to do is zip all the files in the list into a single archive, to avoid the step of having to copy them to the same location (presumably another folder on the HD) and then zip that folder. I'm more inclined to make provisions about extracting to a single folder at some other time. Is this possible in BASH, or would I have to consider a faster, more robust scripting language such as python or perl?

Programming :: Bash/Perl Script - Provide List Of Hosts To Choose From And Ssh To Chosen Host?

Apr 6, 2010

I'm not sure if this is best done in Perl or Bash. I'm thinking surely someone else has created something close to what I'm looking for. The results of the script would be that someone would kick off "" r whatever you want to call it, then a top "folder" of options (with hosts contained within each of these top menu choices), then, based on which number corresponds to that top level, they're presented with a set of linux hosts that are relevant to that top level name. Example:

1. VMware hosts 4. Private Domain
2. ESX servers 5. Red Hat boxes

Programming :: How To Get Zenity Progress Bar Working Properly

Apr 14, 2011

I am busy writing this script to get a pixel count of a large batch of images in a directory for a research project. To do this I'm using a loop to get all the images in the directory. To make the whole procedure more user friendly for some colleagues I decided to use zenity, something I haven't yet really worked with. As not to make sure that the users don't have to watch to this blank screen during the actual processing of the images I'm trying to get the zenity progress bar working. So far the progress bar comes up but instead of changing over time it stays "empty" till all the images are processed and then becomes 100% when all images are done. What servers my needs for now, but since I am trying to learn more about zenity I was wondering how I could change the script to get the progress bar properly working? Below is the piece of script I am talking about.

cd $input #goto path of image directory
(for a in *jpg *JPG *jpeg *JPEG; do
if [ -f "$a" ]; then #was it a image file
b="$a" #set b to $a
convert -resize 1000x1000! ${b} -depth 1 -format %c histogram:info:$b.txt #get pixelcount and write to .txt file
done) | zenity --progress

Programming :: BASH Sort List By End Of Line To X Position In Each Line?

Aug 18, 2010

I'm trying to make another file annotation script a little speedier than it has been by the up-until-now proven method of checking the last four characters in a filename before the "dot" (eg .jpg, .psd) against a list of known IPTC categories and Exiv2 command files. It occurred to me that if one script generated a list of files in directory foo, and the same or another script sorted that list by that four-letter tag,then that list could be used(instead of a for/do/done loop on the real files in the folder) by the command-file-matching script to "vomit out" which annotator file would go with file nastynewfile.jpg, f'r'instance. The script I had been using for this task looks like this:


while read 'line';
sp=$(echo $line)
vc=$(echo $sp | cut -d"," -f1)
cv=$(echo $sp | cut -d"," -f2)


Where I seem to be stuck is with how to sort the lines in templist, which may be any number of different lengths, from back to front. sort -k looked promising, except it seems only to work the other way round. I thought of invoking a


q=$(expr length $line); echo $q
n=$[q-8]; echo $n

kind of thing, but that presented the problems of how to sort by those, how to tell sort where to find them (grep?) and how to "stitch them back in" to the original list, which is what I want to sort in the first place.

Programming :: Create Cvs From List Text File

Dec 21, 2010

I have a file with 5000 lines. it is a list of books authors, series and titles. all lines start with the author names, than there is a dash (-) than the series name, a dash again and the title of the book.

The problem I encounter is that sometime there is a series, sometime not, and as I try to enter this list in a database, I wanted to create a cvs file to import into mysql.


The best would be to be able to add in the second line, a "space dash space" just after the author name, but how to make sure it does not do it to the first line as well.

If I could separate all line with 2 dash, (grep ?) then I would be able to do a simple replace, and change the single dash into two.

Programming :: Get A List Of File Install Locations With Make It?

Dec 21, 2010

I have a bit of a problem and the only solution I can think of at the moment is a very tedious one, so I was hoping there would be a better way. What I am trying to do is cross compile the PPPD program so that I can install it on an embedded system (this system does not have make/gcc on it). It was easy to cross compile it, but I can not run "make install" since I'm compiling on a secondary machine. I don't want to install PPPD on this secondary machine (I couldn't anyway, because it was compiled for a different architecture) and I can't run make install on the target machine because there is no make/build system for it.

So it seems like what I would have to do is to manually copy over each compiled file from the build machine to the appropriate location of the target machine. And the only way (that I know of) to figure out how to do this is to manually examine the Makefiles (yes, there are several for PPPD) and figure out which file should go where on the target system. This isn't trivial because it uses a hierarchy of makefiles and the probability of human error for this method is high.

Is it possible that I could run another command that would give me a list of all the commands that make install would perform? Or a list of all files and their target location for "make install"? Or possibly some other solution that I am completely unaware of that would make this task not so painful and error prone?
