Software :: Make Uses Wrong Prefix Searching For .la Files?

Jul 19, 2010

I have rebuilded some packages from source to enable some features not in place by default. I usually use /usr/local as prefix for rebuilded packages.Now I have a problem building some other applications. Make exits with error saying that there is no .la file for some libraries from rebuilded packages - and it tries to find this file with /usr prefix, not /usr/local.Of course, I can place link to .la file I need under /usr prefix, but this is not good. Is there any way to make system search for .la files under right prefix (which is right in .pc files for packages too, of course)?

General :: Code For Renaming Files With Prefix In Subfolders?

Feb 12, 2011

I want to rename files in multiple subfolders with a prefix (e.g., rename "file.tif" with "prefix_file.tif") and not have to be in the subfolder.

code: for f in /path/to/*; do echo mv "$f" "PRE_$f"; done

gives you this: mv /path/to/file1 PRE_/path/to/file1

instead I want this: mv /path/to/file1 /path/to/PRE_file1

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Avidemux Renaming Of Mp4 Files - Home Folder Don't Include The Prefix

Mar 24, 2010

I have used avidemux to cut a mp4 file, choosing just a part of it, and I have discovered it automatically adds "avidemux" to the beginning of the name of the file, plus the author of the file and that I cannot edit the file to erase it. Note that I talk about "right click - properties", and that the file, as seen from home folder dont include the "avidemux" prefix, but if, for instance, I run the file with VLC, "avidemux" will appear, and that is annoying. how to delete that annoying avidemux prefix?

General :: Searching For PHP Files With Find And Grep

Nov 2, 2010

I am looking for all the files that contain the text string 'moo.sql'. I ran the following:

find . -name '*.php' | grep -lir 'moo.sql' *

Unfortunately it seems to return non-php files in addition to php files. I thought the find portion of this would filter the file names so grep would only search php files.

General :: Recursively Searching PHP Or HTML Files

May 5, 2010

I'm a frequent user of grep. I know that I can recursively search a directory using the -r flag:
Code:
// will recursively search all files
grep -r 'some string' *

However, if I want to limit my search to PHP files, the -r flag is suddenly useless:
Code:
// for some reason, this only searches the PHP files in the current dir
grep -r 'some string' *.php

Any good way to recursively search a directory and its subdirs for a string but ONLY look at PHP or HTML files (and possibly TXT files too) ? I'm really hoping for a nice, short command that doesn't involve using an exclude file and which isn't really painful to type. I do this kind of search very frequently and have resorted to either searching EVERY file which is really slow (TAR and ZIP files really slow it down) OR typing repeated commands to search *.php, */*.php, etc.

Programming :: Bash Function For Searching Files ?

Jun 15, 2011

I'm making a small script for searching and doing some operations with photos, but I'm kinda stuck on this little function:

Code:

function findallformat {
prefix=""
if [ $1 = -pre ] then

[code]....

That function should find for every file with a certain type; and you can specify a prefix using a "-pre" followed by the prefix that you want to search. The format should be "stackable", so you can use as many types that you want, without repeating the same function on the code.

Example: findallformat -pre IMG_ .JPG .CR2 #That should search files that start with "IMG_" and finishes with .JPG and .CR2. My problem it's that, when I try to use it on the script, it says "bash: syntax error near `token' unexpected `}'"

General :: Script To Copy Some Files With Ftp After Searching In The Directory?

Apr 20, 2011

I was trying to develop a script which needs to check the count of files on hourly basis and if it find any addition it has to sftp and send a email on the status with filenames and number of files copied via sftp. I will put it on cron to run every hour.

I'll use ls /abc|wc -l to count the no. of lines for the first time and from then whenever a new file will be inserted it'll copy that file to another location or I'll take the date of the files and whichever is having a new date that will be copied to another location.

Ubuntu :: Searching WITHIN Doc - Xls - Ppt Files - Grep Is Unable To Locate Text INSIDE File Types

Sep 1, 2011

I am on Ubuntu 11.04 and using Libre Office 3.3.2 to compose new documents and am saving them using .doc, .ppt and .xls files. (due to having to share them with others who are on Windows systems)

I have a lot of doc files and I need to search for text INSIDE these files. I am perplexed with the fact that no search tool is able to search for text INSIDE these file types. "cat" can display them of course, but grep is not able to locate text INSIDE these file types. I even tried to save a .doc file as an .odt file, but no luck. The Applications>Accessories>Search for Files does not search INSIDE doc, xls or ppt with the option "Contains the text".

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation Stopped At: System Probing - Searching For System Files

May 18, 2011

I'm new to openSUSE, this is the first time i try to install openSUSE version 11.4. on my IBM Thinkpad T43 (on which SUSE Linux version 8.0 has been running before without problems). I have downloaded the ISO images and successfully burned the ISO images on a blank DVD. Having placed my openSUSE DVD in the drive and rebooted my laptop I can see the boot screen.

I then select installation with arrow up/down and press enter. Choosing language and keyboard layout works fine, as well as accepting the license agreement. However, when it comes to 'System Probing' the installation stops at 'Search for system files'. The cursor shows a little turning disk but the rest of the screen is blocked.

I am new to Linux and I am trying to install puppy on an old IBM thinkpad 600X (10gb hd, 196mb ram) When installing puppy from a cd, it loads up and does the kernel stuff before "Searching for Puppy files in computer disk drives" - this takes about 10 minutes before saying "pup_421.sfs not found. Dropping out to initial ramdisk console" then it goes to "/bin/sh can't access tty; jon control turned off". then it stays like that and doesn't continue.

General :: 'make Menuconfig' To Make These Files Modules Rather Than Compiled Elements?

Feb 25, 2011

I need to modify fs/open.c and fs/read_write.c to make my modifications. I cannot find any options in 'make menuconfig' to make these files modules rather than compiled elements. I'm thinking these cannot be modules because the file system won't work without open.c and read_write.c. Is this correct - I cannot compile fs/open.c and fs/read_write.c as modules, only as compiled elements? Or, is there some way for a module to overwrite these routines when the module is installed and re-enable the routines when the module is removed?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Gone Wrong May Have Lost Important Files

Aug 27, 2010

I have had Hardy Heron 8.04 since 2008. Few problems, but when the red arrow indicated updates I clicked on it and it was for an upgrade to 10.04.I decided to upgrade but it didn't go well.I ended up with a black screen and white letters. I didn't know what to do.I don't know many commands.I posted here but got no response.I had no access to the Internet.I decided to reinstall Ubuntu 8.04 from the CD.At one point it asked me about a 10GB partition.I didn't really understand it at that point but clicked ok.When I got the computer running again I noticed that it was a new partition with 7 GB free space.What happened to all my precious other files?

I am panicking because I read a similar thread about a Windows/Ubuntu partition and the person was worried about losing all Windows files.I did back up the files on an external hard drive but not recently. Losing them would mean I had to make up a lot of work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Wrong Time Duration After Concatenating Mp3 Files?

Nov 5, 2010

I have the following problem;When I concatenate several mp3 files the time duration is falsely detected by Rhythmbox when I open the newly created mp3 file. VLC Player however detects the correct time duration. I tried two ways of mergen the mp3's and both have the same falsely result. - mp3wrap- catI currently fixed it by opening the mp3 in VLC player and converted it again to a mp3 file which resolved the issue at hand. However this is not a solution I would like to have, nor a answer to what is the cause of the problem.So my question is simple -- what is the issue with the mp3 file and why is Rhythmbox indicating a falsely time duration?

Ubuntu Servers :: Postfix + Dspam Wrong Path For Digest Files

Apr 7, 2010

I am struggling to get dspam to work properly.

I have follow the instructions [URL] to the letter but when I send spam/ham to the ham@mydomain.net address I see a problem in the logs.

The problem appears to be that when dspam filters the mail it stores the digests in:

/var/spool/dspam/data/mydomain.net/<user>

But when it tries to find the digests to add them to the spam/ham database it looks in:

/var/spool/dspam/data/local/<user>

But I can not find anywhere in the config that controls this.

As I followed the instructions on the ubuntu forums I can not be the first person to see this problem.

logs:
