Ubuntu :: Adding Extensions To Multiple Files Without Extensions?

Dec 28, 2010

I have a directory of a load of files without extensions. I know what the filetype should be, so is there any way of batch renaming the files to append a given extension onto it. i.e. text would be renamed as text.txt?

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 :: How To Tar Files With No Extensions

Sep 1, 2011

I have some directories with a varying numbers of files and subdirectories. All files that have no extensions have to be tared. Their names may change, thus they can not be hardcoded. Subdirectories may also contain a unspecified number of files and subdirectories that are not relevant and should not be included in the archive.

I'd like to be able to do this with a single line, not using any .sh scripts, so that this process could be reproduced as portably as possible.

Sample directory structure:

$ ls -1F

Ubuntu :: Return A List Of Files Without The Extensions?

Jan 3, 2011

I am writing a bash shell script and I am trying to use a select case to modify a few files with the same filename but different extensions (i.e. problem.tex problem.log problem .pdf etc.)

It goes something like this:

Select item in $list
compile $item.tex
open $item.pdf
delete $item.log

Right now my list is list=$( find . -maxdepth 1 -name "*.tex" ) which returns a list only from the current directory of all files ending in .tex so when I try to open the resulting .pdf file I get the error:

error: file problem.tex.pdf doesn't exist

So I'm trying to find a way to use just the name in a select menu.

General :: Symlink All Files But Copy Certain Extensions?

Jul 27, 2011

I'm wondering how I'd be able to symlink all the files in a dir structure and then also copy files of a certain extension in that dir. I'm basically symlinking all files within /foo/a,b,c to /bar/a,b,c and then copying over certain files with a certain extensions.

General :: Convert All File Extensions For Files In Many Sub-directories From Uppercase To Lowercase?

Sep 21, 2010

I'm trying to convert all file extensions for files in many sub-directories from uppercase to lowercase. I have two problems, how to list the absolute path to the files recursively over many sub-directories for which I so far have this:-

find ~/Photos -print which would be fine, except it gives the directories on their own when it finds them rather than just the files with absolute paths. I couldn't find a switch for the "ls" command to do this, so I had to improvise with "find". and once I get grab each absolute file name, to just change the file extension rather than the entire file, which is what I have at the moment.

Ubuntu :: Using Sed To Change Certain File Extensions?

Jun 2, 2010

I have about a hundred and fifty html files that I would like to change image file extension on from gif to png. I want to change this line:

<img src="images/robopix/web/ROBOTNAME.gif" border="0">

to this:

<img src="images/robopix/web/ROBOTNAME.png" border="0">

Trouble is that ROBOTNAME is different in each of the hundred and fifty files. To make it harder, there are other gif filenames on these pages that I do not want to change. I only want the extensions to change if the address prefix is 'images/robopix/web/'. Is there any way to do this with a quick program/sed command rather than manually editing a hundred and fifty files?

Server :: Add PHP Extensions In Debian 5?

Jan 7, 2010

I have installed apache 2 and php 5 on my server. It works great but what I need is to add few extensions to PHP so it supports my website:

PDO (with MySQL and PostgreSQL driver)
GD2 or Imagick

How can I do that?

I have located my php.ini file. It's in the /etc/php5/apache2.php.ini. I have used nano /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini to open it and I searched for "curl", "pdo" etc but there is no mention of them in the php.ini file. No commented lines with these extensions.

Will it work if I just add this on the end of my php.ini?

Ubuntu :: How To Install Firefox Extensions For All Users

May 17, 2010

I am wondering the "new way" to install firefox extensions for all users.

From [URL] we can see that the "old way" is no longer available.

-install-global-extension and -install-global-theme have been removed from Gecko 1.9.2 and upwards.

I'm using the Lucid UNE to write this and note that it has these extensions installed for every user:


Ubuntu Firefox Modifications

I have several users on many computers and would like to have certain extensions installed for them, such as xmarks, add bookmark here, coolpreview, etc.

I searched the entire root filesystem and didn't find any .xpi files.

Ubuntu :: Mass Rename All Picture Extensions?

Jun 24, 2010

Linux cares about case sensitivity. This is a problem when some picture upload services accept .jpg while my camera uploaded the thousands of pictures I have as .JPG.

I can handle this task fine PER DIRECTORY. The problem is, I still have a ton of directories. Is there a way I can select - Pictures - Mass rename EVERYTHING inside and everything inside all sub directories from JPG to jpg?

Basically I want to take the existing command:

rename 's/.JPG$/.jpg/' *.JPG

a step further.

General :: Installing PHP With Choice Of Extensions?

Jul 19, 2009

I was watching a friend of mine install PHP on SuSE with YaST, and it appeared as though he was able to select the various extensions he wanted compiled into PHP for installation. I didn't know this was possible, I thought you pretty much had to take whatever extensions whoever built the package decided to include. Is it possible with CentOS to install PHP with a custom selection of extensions?

I tried logging in as "root" so I could uninstall the packages I installed, but apparently you can't do that in Fedora. What's the best course of action?

General :: Stuck On Converting Extensions Tar.gz To .tgz

Jan 18, 2010

I understand that .tar.gz and .tgz are equivalent to each other.

I did some checking as alway online. I am however stuck how to you make files with a tar.gz extenstion become .tgz. In the case of it being a compressed file is there a right and wrong way of doing this.

it seems that I always encounter things slightly off the beaten path, against my less then optimal knowledge of the man pages.

The first line corresponds to what vim now does. The second one is what I want vim to do.

Software :: Transmission - Add-ons Or Extensions Pack?

I am currently DL-ing a handful of ISO's and am having to set each file's priority to Low on a case-by-case basis. Is there something I'm missing or is there a way to set a Global priority (like speed-limitations)?

Also: I notice that in multi-file torrents (e.g. those found in Fedora-12-x86_64-Live) that each file can have its own priority setting. Can these have a default other than Normal?

CentOS 5 Server :: How To Create Some PHP Extensions

Jun 16, 2009

I'm trying to create some PHP extensions. I have installed php-devel as well as the other preqs I thought were required. However I'm not able to find ext_skel. The file README.EXT_SKEL was installed, but not the actual program (find / -name ext_skel). My understanding was ext_skel was installed with php-devel. I know it is in the source code, but I'm not sure where to get the source for PHP 5.1.6 for my version of CentOS.
