Slackware :: Move Files From Within Many Subdirectories To Another One?

Jun 25, 2011

I have a large directory tree with my ebooks and some of these files are zipped. I would like to move all of the zip files to another one so I can manipulate them. Since they are all scattered inside the tree, I would like to do it quickly and painfully with CLI. How should I proceed?

Ubuntu :: Move Music Files From All Subdirectories To Parent Directory?

Mar 1, 2010

I've found several posts discussing how to do this in with the terminal, but none exactly fit what I am trying to do. And since I'm still very new, I was hoping for some help.

I have a parent directory called "Music." The subdirectories all start with "artist", some go further as in "artist/album/cd1". So right now the structure varies in the following ways code...

How can I move all the files (or the file types that I choose) to the parent directory "music"?

(By the way, for any who are interested, this is so that I can use an external hd with a PS3. ("playstation 3"--for anyone who was in my predicament searching the threads)

General :: Find Files In Subdirectories And Copy Them To Another Directory With The Same Subdirectories?

Nov 18, 2010

This question is very similar to this one except that I want to maintain the file's original subdirectories.

For example if I had

/temp/a/a.txt
/temp/a/a.jpg
/temp/a/b.txt
/temp/b/c.txt
/temp/d/d.txt
/temp/d/d.jpg
/temp/d/e.txt

Ubuntu :: Command With The -r Option To Compare A Large Number Of Files And Files In Subdirectories

Jun 16, 2011

I am using the diff command with the -r option, to compare a large number of files and files in subdirectories. My main interest is to find out which files have been changed, and not what the actual changes are, and since a lot of files has been changed, it would be a lot easier to view the file names only. Is there and option for diff that might do this, or does there exist a similar tool/command that could do the job?

Ubuntu :: Bash To Sort Files Into Subdirectories?

Sep 4, 2010

i currently have hundreds of files all in a single directory. What I would like to do is create 8 subdirectories and move the files into the subdirectories based on the first character of the file name. Ideally, the script would omit any 'the' or 'a' and use the second word for filing purposes. No filenames have spaces. Instead they use periodsThe subdirectories will be:

0-9
a-d
e-h

Software :: Read Files In Subdirectories On Encrypted Drive

Dec 18, 2010

Two machines -- both 64-bit, both the latest Truecrypt installed, one Windows, one Linux. I created encrypted pendrive (using partition mode; not file-partition on regular partition) with FAT system on it. I copied several files/directories there -- using Windows. Then I unmounted it, mounted in Linux, but when I checked if everything is OK, it appeared that only the highest level of file hierarchy is visible -- i.e. only files and directories at mount point. Directories are seen as empty (in fact they are NOT empty). When I unmount pendrive and mount it again on Windows, all files/subdirectories are visible again. It is not an issue with older version of TC on Linux, because the version is the same. The question: how to make files in subdirectories visible on Linux?

OpenSUSE Network :: Setup An Apache Server On Computer Which Will Allow Browsing Of Files In A Specific Directory And Subdirectories?

Jun 13, 2011

I'm trying to setup an Apache server on my computer which will allow browsing of files in a specific directory and subdirectories, without needing any sort of authentication.

I've got the Apache2 server up and running through yast, and everything works fine as long as I try to point it to the /www/htdocs folder. However, I want to point it at another folder, which is on another partition. This partition is formatted as NTFS, if that matters at all (here's some background on some permissions issues I had with the NTFS partitions recently).

When I change the "Directory" setting in the Yast http server configuration utility to the directory on the NTFS partition I wish to use, attempting to access the server results in the following error:

Code: Access Forbidden: You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected. If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

Error 403
192.168.1.100
Mon Jun 13 23:43:29 2011
Apache/2.2.17 (Linux/SUSE)

I am to rename all the files within a directory (which contains multiple subdirectories) recursively without invalid characters.

I didn't made a separate partition for my Home during the installation of slackware in the PC.

Slackware :: Unclear Screen - Move Aside All Shell Startup Scripts?

Mar 18, 2010

using any sort of rxvt-based terminal with TERM set to rxvt (or rxvt-unicode) then ^L will not clear the screen, only act as newline. This is not the behavior I see on Debian or CentOS. I have the same user environment at each site. Using urxvt on centos, ^L will clear the screen like readline(3) says it should. If I then ssh to slackware, it won't. exporting TERM=xterm will cause the correct behavior after having logged in to slackware, but I'd rather understand why this is happening. I've tried moving aside all the shell startup scripts, setting clear-screen explicitly in .inputrc, setting stty sane nothing doing. Am I missing something?

Debian :: Move Files From Old Partition?

Aug 21, 2010

Had a bit of a partition nightmare during an install, involving my home directory.

My partitioning looks like this and my install is still completing:

sda1=/boot
sda2=/
sda3=swap
sda4=/home

My old home partition and data is located in a partition that I preserved, called /homebak and is on sdb.

Once my install is complete, what is the best way to move the data from /sdb1 (homebak) to my newly created /home?

For the record, I tried to copy the partition during set-up, but something wasn't happy.

I've got my important files backed-up, but would prefer not to lose about 5 gigs of music and video.

Apple :: How Best To Move Files From An Old Mac To A New Ubuntu Box

Jun 10, 2010

Last fall I got a new Linux desktop computer from System76. Before that, I had a 1997-era beige G3 Mac. (This Mac is pre-USB plugs.)

I still have files on that old Mac that I need to move to the new machine. Some are text files and various other kinds of files, but mostly, they're image files, and there's a lot of them.

The Mac has a SCSI port and an Ethernet port. No Firewire, no USB.

My question: What's the best way to move the files from the old to the new machine?

(I think it would be a hassle to try to e-mail them, as I have quite a lot of image files on the Mac.)

Also, if some of the files (like text-files?) that are in Mac format can't be read once on a Linux OS, how would I make the necessary conversions?
