Ubuntu :: Directory Exists But Bash Says It Doesn't - No Such File Or Directory

Aug 19, 2011

I've run into a problem with my bash program.

Code:a mkdir -p /home/chris/Downloads/ARCHIVE/`date -I` find /home/chris/Downloads* -mtime +14 -exec "cp {} /home/chris/Downloads/ARCHIVE/`date -I` ;

It's meant to move old files from my Downloads folder into an archive file (later tar them). The directory exists, I've used $PWD and nautilus and ls to make sure it's there, yet for every file it gives

Code: find: `cp /home/chris/Download/foo.bar /home/chris/Downloads/ARCHIVE/2011-08-19': No such file or directory I tried to test it on a different destination, specifically my home folder. IT still gave me the error.IS it a bad syntax within find or something else? I'm running a 32-bit system with 11.04

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 Updates And Kdesu Command - Directory OpenSUSE_11.2 Doesn't Exists

May 23, 2011

Not sure but has support and updates for 11.2 come to an end? Every monday morning i make sure i'm upto date with updates etc. This am i get a message saying "repo not available" and having looked online to see if the directory openSUSE_11.2 exists, it doesn't.

At the same time loged in as a std user i regularily offer the command kdesu kwite. the command is accepted without error and the cursur returns on a new line as expected but kwrite doesn't start. I'm guessing that my last update has left me with a broken OS. It doesn't seem very long at all since i installed 11.2!

Ubuntu :: "No Such File Or Directory Exists"

Jun 1, 2011

My laptop keeps shutting down out of nowhere- now more so than ever since installing Ubuntu. After starting a thread in the hardware and laptop section asking anyone if they had a solution to a well known fan problem with the Acer Aspire 5315 (my laptop), the only responses I received were rubbish in nature. Simply put, the Acer Aspire 5315 has a faulty fan which runs only when it wants to- not when the computer NEEDS it to.

I found THIS solution to my problem: [URL]. As suspected, this isn't a BIOS thing as some have told me that it was. But here's the REAL crappy part - the solution posted in this thread works up until you're about to install the fix via the terminal. The commands spit back at me that "No such file or directory exists". THUS, I'm unable to get this thing working.

I need someone to explain to me why the terminal is spitting out the garbage that it is- that no such file or directory exists when attempting to install and launch the fix for this fan issue. Please be as detailed as possible. What? Should I move the script to some sub-directory? how does this input into the terminal?

Ubuntu :: Help With Bin File - Error Message - Bash - /hldsupdatetool.bin - No Such File Or Directory

Jun 9, 2009

I am new to Linux and I wanted to setup a dedicated game server on my notebook.

I've installed Ubuntu 9.04. I than created a directory named /home/phlex/kfserver. I downloaded the application binary from Steam. I changed the file permission with chmod +x hldsupdatetool.bin and now the file attributes are -rwxr-xr-x.

The problem is when I try to run the binary file. If I type ./hldsupdatetool.bin I get an error message "-bash: ./hldsupdatetool.bin: No such file or directory. It seems the OS can't find the file. I've downloaded the file several times thinking it may have been corrupt but it's not. I can delete the file, I can rename it and so the file is there. Sometimes Linux can be aggravating to use.

Software :: "No Such File Or Directory" When File Exists

May 21, 2011

I'm having a rather strange problem - I'm trying to run an executable which is viewable using 'ls -l', and whose assembled code can be seen in programmes such as vi, but when I run it it says "zsh: no such file or directory". Here is a transcript of the commands:

[joshua:/usr/bin]$ ls -l gst-launch
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9224 2008-11-22 16:13 gst-launch
[joshua:/usr/bin]$ file gst-launch
gst-launch: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped


There's been a couple of similar questions on LQ, but only one which seemed to have a vaguely helpful answer was this one. I too am running 64-bit Slackware, so it may well be a similar problem. The poster installs "ld-linux.so.2", which I don't have on my system (I have "ld-linux-x86-64.so.2" installed, though)... However, he gets it from a package using apt, and the source package which contains ld-linux.so.2 seems to be glibc.

Is ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 in any sense equivalent to ld-linux.so.2? Have other people seen this problem, and do they believe installing ld-linux.so.2 will solve the problem? If so, is installing glibc the right way of going about it?

CentOS 5 :: -bash: /usr/bin/yum: No Such File Or Directory

Feb 8, 2011

I upgraded my php from 5.1.6 to 5.2.10 but at php -v I got a weird error, so I figured let's reinstall some things. This was the probably very dumb commando I used:

yum remove gcc-c++l zlib zlib-devel php*

Now I think my whole server is fxxxed because I get the following messages:

-bash: /usr/bin/yum: No such file or directory
-bash: rpm: command not found
-bash: ls: command not found

And the only thing I'm glad about is I still have an SSH connection open because creating a new connection isn't possible either. what should I do to repair this all.

Ubuntu :: Checking To See If A Directory Exists Remotely?

Jan 14, 2010

I'm working on my first bash script. My script will do several things but right now I'm just trying to get the basic part of it down and working.I have a section that looks like this


if [ ! -d `ssh ${1} /somedir`];then
echo "Bad"


The problem is that if you take that right now and run it, it will return back good in that it does exist. What I need it to do is pass back that it's bad because it doesn't exist (that is unless you actually do have that directory in your root).

Fedora :: Zenity - Bash: [/code]: No Such File Or Directory

Apr 9, 2010

Awhile back, PabloTwo pointed me to zenity as a way to create bash scripts with changeable parameters. That thread is here, for anyone interested in reading about it: [URL] Anyway, my problem is that I'm trying to capture input that contains double-dashes ("--") but zenity (or maybe or it's bash???) complains with the following error message:

"This option is not available. for all possible usages.
bash: [/code]: No such file or directory"

Here's an example of what I'm doing:


# Select the time of day
Flytime=`zenity --list --text="Select the Time" --radiolist --height=300 --width=300 --hide-column=2 --column="Select" --column="Code" --column="Time of Day"
"" "--timeofday=real" "Local Time"


What I want to accomplish is for the variable $Flytime to contain either "--timeofday=real" or "--timeofday=dawn" (without the quotes) depending upon which radio button is selected. I have tried escaping "--timeofday" (e.g. "--timeofday" and even "--timeofday") but that's not working.

Fedora :: BASH :: Change File Stat In Sub Directory?

Oct 23, 2010

So I have created a Bash script with the intent of the program to change the names of the files in a folder's subdirectory.The code recognises the individual subdirectories, then is able to enter into one and list the files individually, but when it tries to change their information it says;' cannot stat ' : ' No such file or directory 'As if it is looking in the directory that contains the Bash script, not its subdirectory.It is essentially saying, I see a file here called FILE but sorry, I can't change FILE because FILE doesn't exist. kweh?Is this something outside the capabilities of Bash? Am I asking too much of it? Can Bash only manipulate files that are in the same folder as the script?

echo enter directory

General :: Bash - Finding Newest File In A Directory?

Aug 24, 2010

Basically, I am trying to locate and copy the newest .json bookmark backup in my .mozilla/firefox/w987sdg9.default/bookmarkbackups directory.

I tried this


ls -t ~/.mozilla/firefox/b1ahb1ah.default/bookmarkbackups/ | head -1

which does return the newest file, but only the filename itself. I found readlink, but I haven't gotten that to output a full path which I can then feed to copy. So, it seems to me that find might work well here, and I know how to find based on absolute dates, but not relative.

Ubuntu :: Hidden Directory 'RECYCLER' Creates .exe File In Directory Called 0x2D9FA278

May 30, 2011

I've done a low level format on them so they're completely empty. When I use them with my windows machines, they're absolutely fine. When I plug them into my Ubuntu machine, there is a hidden directory created called 'RECYCLER' which I'm assuming is for deleted files?However, it also creates a .exe file in this directory called 0x2D9FA278 which has an Icon with an H in it and a comment of 'Facebook Photo' This has the effect of making all the directories on the stick into shortcuts! I googled the file name and it seems to be some sort of Trojan, but I don't understand how it's go into my Ubuntu machine, I've scanned with ClamAV and it finds nothing.
