Ubuntu :: Change Folder Timestamp Recursively?

Sep 2, 2010

I was wondering if anyone knows how to change the timestamps of folders recursively based on the latest timestamp found of the files in that folder.

So for example:

Code:
jon@UbuntuPanther:/media/media/MP3s/Foo Fighters/(1997-05-20) The Colour and The Shape$ ls -alF
total 55220
drwxr-xr-x 2 jon jon 4096 2010-08-30 12:34 ./

[Code]....

Programming :: Sort Oldest 5 Files In A Directory Tree Recursively Based On Timestamp?

Jun 3, 2010

I have a directory listing with many subdirectories having many files. I want to recursively search for the oldest 5 files starting from the base directory and not 5 from each subdirectory. I am writing a shell script which sorts them using ls -lRtur|egrep "txt|jpg" > /tmp/file1 Now from this /tmp/file1 file I want to sort the files same as what the ls -ltr command does that is oldest file time to newest file time first. How do I sort based on Linux time stamp? The files itself also have Linux timestamps embedded in them So I can sort based after extracting them as well if it is easier.
My /tmp/file1 has entries like below.

-rw-rw-r--. 1 usr1 usr1 705 2010-01-22 17:25 sample20100603173659.jpg

I want to get the 5 oldest files and then delete them.

Software :: How To Change Timestamp Of Symlink

Feb 10, 2010

I have a directory containing files and symlinks to files elswhere. I make a copy of the directory like this:
cp -rp dir/* new_dir

The files in new_dir have their original timestamps, but the symlinks have the current time. touch -t does not operate on the symblink but on the files they reference. Is there a way to set the timestamp of the symlink to a time in the past?

Programming :: Recursively Upload A Folder From [2] To [1]

Apr 1, 2010

I work on two hosts, [1] with online ftp access, and [2] without ncftp installed, but with ssh access.

Now I need to recursively upload a folder from [2] to [1]. So I can't use hardfeed - which is for downloading

I think I can use a

find ./orig -exec curl ftp://pinshosting.net

But I'm not so so known with the params of find and curl to get it working recursively.

Ubuntu Servers :: Renaming Files Recursively From Folder

Mar 26, 2011

I'm trying to rename files recursively from a folder. I want to delete the & from every filename. i've searched the net and found the following script:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
dir=/whatever/directory
for file in `ls $dir` ; do
# ANYCASE TO UPPERCASE:
newname=`echo $file | tr '[a-z]' '[A-Z]'`
mv $dir/$file $dir/$newname
done
and changed it:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
dir=/home/test
for file in `find $dir -type f` ; do
#rename files containing &
newname=`echo $file` | tr '[&]' ''
mv $dir/$file $dir/$newname
done

But the for loop explodes the filename after each & sign, so i don't have a whole filename. if the file is named lorem & ipsum, the for loop will break it in 3 parts.

Ubuntu :: Script To Recursively Make Folder & Filenames Lowercase

Jul 23, 2010

I'm looking for a shell script that will recursively make all of the file and directory names in a large directory tree lowercase. It has to work with file and folder names with spaces and keep the spaces in the converted names. The reason I want to do this is because most of my personal files are on my Windows partition, and before I discovered Ubuntu, I made my file and folder names have mixed case as in "My File.txt", and now I want it to look like "my file.txt".

General :: Get The Last Change Time Of Directory Recursively

May 28, 2011

How can I get the last time any of the files in a directory or its subdirectories has changed?
e.g

Dir - changed 1/1/1
Sub Dir 1 - changed 2/1/1
Sub Dir 2 - changed 3/1/1
File 1 - changed 10/1/1
File 2 - change 5/1/1


The output for this for Dir should be 10/1/1 (File 1 was the last modified one). Getting the last file name to be modified is a bonus but isn't necessary.

Ubuntu Servers :: Any Way To See Running Commands With Timestamp?

Jul 26, 2010

I recently hired a new tech guy to start managing our servers. In doing this I went ahead and upgraded all the servers. It has been awhile now since I sent him the details of the new server and the last time I talked to him he was joking around with one of the other clients not realizing how long it took.

I know on other server moves, my old guy could have everything setup and running in a couple days as a good amount of time is waiting for the data to copy over. I am starting to wonder if this guy is going to try and throw a huge bill at me, so I would like to know what hes doing on the server with time stamps just so I can get a idea of how much time he has been logged into the server. Does this server OS have anything like this built in?

Ubuntu :: Folder Icons Won't Change / What To Fix It?

Jul 17, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu Studio 10.10 and I was installing some programs the other night. After I had finished installing the programs, the folder icons (and their respective windows) changed to this god-awful beige colour. I'm using the "UbuntuStudio" theme which has these nice glossy blue folders by default, but they've changed as I said to this ugly colour that, quite frankly, sickens me.
I've gone into the Appearance Preferences and tried to work it out there, but no matter what I do, the folders never change.
If any of you know how I can fix this.

Ubuntu :: Timestamp Format - Shell Versus Cron Job

Jun 16, 2010

Setup: 10.04 server with "bash" as /bin/sh
When I run "ls -l" in a shell I get the following format:

Code:
-rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 0 2010-06-13 06:53 /var/log/user.log
Whereas if "ls -l" executes from a cron job the format is:

Code:
-rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 0 Jun 13 06:53 /var/log/user.log
Notice the different time format. Now I could fix this by changing the cron job to

Code:
ls -l --time-style=+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M ...
but I'm interested in knowing why this behavior occurs. What's different between the cron job and the shell?

Ubuntu :: Accidental Permission Change To 'none' On Folder?

Mar 13, 2010

A rather new user here, was messing with the preferences on a user folder of mine on Karmic, looking for a way to make the folder invisible to users (like the old windows option). Set it to 'none', then closed it, returned to the directory finding the folder with a box with an 'x' on it.

Went to open it, it says 'access denied'. So I think 'okay, how do I undo that', go back to see if I can restore it back to 'read & write' with no sucess.

Seached the forums for a solution to this issue, most of solutions revolve around 'gksudo nautilus' which I attempted to open via command-line. Nothing seemed pop open after I entered my password in responce to entering said command-line, probably because I really don't know how to use Nautilus.
