I was messing around with fed 12 yesterday (only on a test installation) and i've hit a snag. I installed openbox and tint2, nitrogen, obconf etc so i could have a #!-style session at startup. It all worked fine until i installed pcmanfm and removed nautilus. The problem is that i can't display files in my home directory, either using pcmanfm, a reinstalled nautilus, or in terminals. Every time i try to point a file brower there it just seems to get stuck searching forever, until i kill it. Weirdly in terminator i can do an 'ls' to see visible files, but 'ls -la' causes the problem again.
ps i thought permissions might have something to do with it, so i did a 'chmod -R 777' as root. it changed permissions for quite a lot of the files but then froze again, and now the problem persists.
My manager askmed me to find out all the jpg files in a directory and copy to another destination directory.I tried to write a shell script.But the problem is this source directory contains thousands of subdirectories. The jpg files resides in all of these directories.We have to search inside all these sub directories.I am reallyconfused.Can Any one help me.I am only a beginner to Shell scripting.
Initially, I was trying to get around a Nautilus log in error. Using this, I was able to log in, but I entered what seems to be a perfectly clean version of Ubuntu...with no access to my files. [URL].... Now, I can't seem to find any of my original files. Some of the commands I entered in the terminal included:
I'm afraid that I may have deleted the files, or have moved them to another user or someplace on the drive I can't see.
how come I can create a shell script file with two functions, I can execute the file, but when running declare -f, the functions are not on memory, and when invoking the function bash returns invalid. In the other hand, I can copy & paste the two functions at the end of my /etc/bashrc file.... then I can called the function by name.... and the commands within that function run on my session. here is a print of all my bash packets:
Does Fedora has restrictions on shell scripting? I haven't touch bash in seven years, so if things have change on it I'm behind on it, and sorry for my ignorance.
i want make a bash panel and i want he will copy files from orginal folder to $user folder i mean when for explame i type i want install some server he say cp: cannot stat 'root/Desktop/2/files/beckup/sa-mp-steam': No such file or directory.
I had Fedora 7 and Windows-XP dual operating system. Few weeks ago, there was GRUB error. Now I want to install Fedora 14, but before it I want to back up all data in one external hard drive. I used Fedora 13 live-CD I could access all the drive formatted as NTFS, but I couldn't access /home and the drive formatted (ext2) and owned by the user-name.
Please, inform if there is any idea to copy my files that remains in the home folder. (I can see them but copying is prevented)
I installed Freeradius using Yum and then RPM, where the heck does the default program folder get installed and how do you even find it. I did a find . -name free and I come up with nothing. In Windows, I can go to a program respoistory, download a program to the default directory or choose one, launch the installation, and more often than not the program and most of it's components are installed in the 'Programs' directory. It is a pretty consistent, neat, and organized process. Can someone relate how Linux works in comparison? I am not knocking Linux, just trying to understand if there is a consistent method to how it downloads, installs, and stores applications.
I am doing my web radio project. i hav the exact code for the application. It needs sland and newt libraries to be installed. I installed them succesffuly. but when i compile the code it is showing number of errors. actually i hav to copy the libnewt.so file into /usr/lib folder. when i copy tat file it is displaying error as permission denied.
how to copy that file in to that folder. and tell me the stteps to install newt on fdora core 9.
the errors displayed when i compile the code are
[root@localhost newt-0.52.4]# cc -Wall -I/usr/include/slang -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -c -o setup.o setup.c setup.c:4:18: error: newt.h: No such file or directory In file included from setup.c:10: newt_pr.h:20: warning: enum newtFlagsSense declared inside parameter list newt_pr.h:20: warning: its scope is only this definition or declaration, which is probably not what you want
Is there a non-root shell command that can tell me if a user's account is disabled or not? note that there is a fine distinction between LOCKING and DISABLED:
LOCKING is where you prepend ! or * or !! to the password field of the /etc/passwd file. On Linux systems that shadow the passwords, this marker flag may be placed in /etc/shadow instead of /etc/passwd. Password locking can be done (at a shell prompt) via password -l username (as root) to lock the account of username, and the use of the option -u will unlock it.
DISABLING an account is done by setting the expiration time of the user account to some point in the past. This can be done with chage -E 0 username, which sets the expiration date to 0 days after the Unix epoch. Setting it to -1 will disable the use of the expiration date.
The effect of locking to to prevent the login process from using a supplied password to hash correctly against the saved hash (by virtue of the fact that the pre-pended marker character(s) are not valid output character(s) for the hash, thus no possible input can ever be used to generate a hash that would match it). The effect of disabling is to prevent any process from using an account because the expiration date of the account has already passed.For my situation, the use of locking is not sufficient because a user might still be able to login, e.g. using ssh authentication tokens, and processes under that user can still spawn other processes. Thus, we have accounts that are enabled or disabled, not just locked. We already know how to disable and enable the account - it requires root access and the use of chage, as shown above.To repeat my question: is there a shell command which can be run without root privileges which can output the status of this account expiration info for a given user? this is intended for use on a Red Hat Enterprise 5.4 system.The output is being returned to a java process which can then parse the output as needed, or make use of the return code.
I have a number of crash.log files scattered about my system and I would like to run a command to find all the crash.log files on the system and copy them to a single directory; each with a unique filename. For example, copy crash.log from ~/directory_1 , ~/directory_2 , ~/directory_3 and so on to ~/crash_logs/crash.log1 , ~/crash_logs/crash.log2 , ~/crash_logs/crash.log3 etc.
I have a question which has been in part answered many times but nothing I found relateds completely to my situation. I am sure there will be people who will say RTFM but believe me I did, and searched as well but to no avail. I have a situation where I want to copy files created withing last hour in one directory into another one. The problem is that that the directories are on different levels in the dir tree so the absolute path is different. But I want to keep the relative path the same.
I want to copy new files from /mnt/path_to_webdav/user to /home/user. so if there is new file /mnt/path_to_webdav/user/doc/xy.txt I want it to be copied to /home/user/doc/xy.txt. Also if there is a new dir, say /mnt/path_to_webdav/user/newdir I want a new dir to be created in /home/user/newdir with all the files in it, should there be any. I can do find with exec and copy all the files into one directory.This is not what I want though. How do I preserve the relative path and get the files copied into their corresponding directories?
With Windows XP, I just right clicked a folder/directory and pressed FIND then I could search for whatever file/folder name i wanted to. I could even do custom searches based on the size, modification date etc.How do you do this on Ubuntu? There doesnt seem to be a way to easily do it like this. So far i found PLACES -> SEARCH FOR FILES but that means I have to go into the directory i want. Where as I would much rather be browsing through directories and THEN want to quickly search in a particular folder. The SEARCH FOR FILES method in PLACES just wastes more time.
am trying to write a shell script to find the size of a particular log file and if the log size grows, script should mail the changes to the administrator or a any user so script should monitor the log file continuously in a time interval, how can i do that?
I tried with these codes to find the file size but it throws me error says command not found
I want to use find and scp to copy files. Is there a way to copy files that have spaces in their names? I know you can add " tags for a single file but can find do that? This is the command that i use:
I'm relatively experienced with UNIX and Linux, but this has me thrown for quite a loop, and it seemed like such a simple question. How would I go about finding the newest file in a file system? I thought something like:
ls -ltr `find /usr -type f`
would work, but I seem to be exceeding the argument maximum for ls:
ksh: 0403-029 There is not enough memory available now
I thought something involving xargs might work, but I really suck with that command.
I have installed Fedora 12 x86_64 and vsftpd. I would like to set up an user for FTP so that he/she could only view/edit files in one certain folder (the one that I set up). How would I go about doing that?
