General :: Adjust And Combine Multiple Lower Quality Photos Into One Better Using FOSS?

Mar 12, 2011

I have multiple noisy photos (caputed without tripod) that needs to be adjusted (moved/rotated) and averaged.

How it's better to do it in Linux with FOSS console-based programs?

Current way is something like:

mplayer mf://*.JPG -vo yuv4mpeg:file=qqq.yuv
transcode -i qqq.yuv -y null -J stabilize=maxshift=500:fieldsize=100:fieldnum=6:stepsize=50:shakiness=10
transcode -i qqq.yuv -J transform=smoothing=100000:sharpen=0:optzoom=0 -y raw -o www.yuv

Update: Experimented with "Hugin". It only distorted all photos according some "projection" and refused to merge them: enblend: excessive overlap detected; remove one of the images. Of course "excessive" - they're all almost in the same place. No averaging? /* and images are not actually aligned */.

Proceeding to experiments with enblend/panorama_tools/ale.

General :: Copy Folder Hierarchy / Recreate All Folders From One Directory Without Copying Over Contents Of Folder?

Is there a way to recreate all the folders from one directory to another without copying over the contents of the folder? I've been trying to do something like this,

Code:for i in `ls $X`; do mkdir $PATH/$i; doneUnfortunately $i is deliminated by whitespaces in the filenames and not the actual folders.

$X contains only other folders so I dont have to worry about regular files but any kind of more "advanced" solution would work.

Hi,I had a Windows 7 installation and I decided to install ubuntu 11.04 I tried several times but every time soon or later something with grub goes wrong.Most times I get the error "no such partition",once it just halted after "verifying DMI ... " .I fixed windows mbr with "bootsect /nt60 C:" and then tried to reinstall grub with boot-repair .It showed no errors but after reboot I get "no such partition" again.
My scheme is something like :

/dev/sda1 -> the windows 7 system partition NTFS

/dev/sda3 -> partition for files(images/music/videos) NTFS
/dev/sda4 -> extended partition

Software :: Dependent Libraries And Header Files In Non System Folder?

Apr 5, 2011

I've a source code of a program and I know that to compile and install that program I've to do:
./configure --prefix=/opt/test
make install

Now I want the program to look for dependent libraries and header files first in a non system folder. Now how can i instruct "configure" and "make" script to look for dependencies first in a different folder without editing configure and Makefile. And after these folders are searched for dependencies by the script it can look in system folder. Is there any environment variable that i can supply to "configure" and "make"? Will that work without any conflict? what are these environment variables? And also if I use these environment variables do I need to edit the source code files?

I mean do I need to change these lines
#include <test1.h> ...
#include "test1.h" ...

If yes then is there any other way to compile them without modifying the source code?

Ubuntu :: Zipping Contents Of Multiple Folders?

Oct 8, 2010

I have a set of folders in some directory /home/dir, and I'd like to generate zip files for the contents of each folder separately. I'm wondering if there's a quick way to do this with a one-liner, or what the bash script would be.

Directory structure: /home/dir/first/second/thirdand I want three files, first.zip, second.zip, and third.zip. I know zip isn't the best format, but these are for distribution to users on Windows machines and I'd prefer to keep them in the zip format.

Ubuntu :: Mount Folder To Different Folders

Apr 22, 2011

I just sat up an openSSH Server with Samba access and all, but don't think about that.here's my question, and as you read you may understand why I posted this instead of googling it, it's un-google-able.can I mount a regular folder like /media/disk1/random to 2 different places ? and if so here's the tricky part:

1: when I end up in that folder, I don't want the direction path to end up like this: /media/disk1/random IE: so I don't want a link to the other folder, I want the OS to think it's a regular folder (in lames terms)the reason is because I want my openSSH clients to move inside a small space, without jumping all over the place, and be able to use the (...) feature in the SFTP client.(don't think about the permissions their already set.)

2: I don't want it to be a synchronized folder, I want the data to be stored on /media/disk1/randomor else it kind of blows the whole file storage server idea straight out of the window.

Ubuntu :: Explain The Multiple Firefox Default Folders?

Mar 14, 2010

Under /home/username/.mozilla I have a default folder which contains folders named "aqeif3n4.slt" and "cache". Under /home/username/.mozilla/Firefox I also have more default folders such as "6ajy4rl7.default", "ad2fpe1q.default" and "ivkrjhk8.default". I do not understand what the default folder under /home/username/.mozilla is for. I am sure that the .default folders under /home/username/.mozilla/Firefox are my Firefox files (duh!) but why are there more than one? Is a new one created every so often so you have copies from past time periods? Or what?

Server :: Multiple Folders To A Single Path

Mar 27, 2010

We have too many audio Paths, for each user have one. We would like to create a unique folder to Read in network.

For example:

The idea is Mapping all folders to the path /pub/Music in server, so all user can access all music online in the server.

Very Well. How we can do it?

And when pc1 and pc2 have the same subfolder, like Beatles, and in the subfolder have different folders ( PC1-Beatles/Revolver ) (PC2-Beatles/Habbey_Road) or The same folder (PC1-Beatles/The_Mistery_Magic_Tour) (PC3-Beatles/The_Mistery_Magic_Tour)...

Is there a way to contemplate this issue?

Here is the deal: On my windows drive I have a folder that is filled with folders inside folders packed full of files in all the folders.

Ubuntu :: Copy All The Pictures From Various Folders In Documents To A Single Folder

Dec 8, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. I want to copy all the pictures from various folders in my Documents to a single folder. So in Nautilus, I clicked on Places > Search for Files. Then chose the Documents folder and typed *.jpg in the search criteria. It found all of my pictures just fine. However it would not let me copy and paste them into a folder I put on my desktop. Copy is not on the "right" click menu and Ctrl C did not work for the highlighted search results. This is so simple in Windows but it does not seem to work in Ubuntu.
