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?
I have around 150+ folders in one directory. All contains some pdf files. Now i want to give some prefix no. to folder only not the files inside. How can i give the prefix to all my folders?Eg : Suppose i want no. 8562 then i want it like as follows
OLD FOLDER NEW FOLDER ABC/ 8562-ABC/ AABC/ 8562-AABC/
under avidemux-qt, the videos play and encode w/out any audio output, and audiodevice is set to "dummy" and cannot be changed. but avidemux-gtk has no problem w/ audio playback.Is this an application specific problem, and if not how do i configure phonon to fix this issue?
I have a folder where all of my movies are placed. Each movie lies in its own folder. I want to write a script which renames all the movie files and gives them the name of the folder they are in.For example I want this file:/home/tryfon/movies/Black Irish /black.irish.dvdrip.avi to be renamed to /home/tryfon/movies/Black Irish /Black Irish .aviOne issue is that the video files are of several file types (mostly avi, divx and mkv).Another issue is that some movies consist of two parts, so if a second avi file is found I would like the two (or more) files to be named like: "Black Irish  CD1" and "Black Irish  CD2", or if this is not possible at least notify me of the folders that contain more than one video fil
I created a little bash script for renaming files from a folderEvery time i hv to put that bash script file (rename.sh) in folder Is there any ways i will call (rename.sh) from terminal without moving rename.sh into any folder ?ne More Question : Whenever i run any .sh file automatically one .sh~ file created it is my programing mistake or is it exists ?
I managed to very stupidly (and avoidably) overwrite the hard drive that contained all my stuff--music, photos, home videos from the 80's that were painstakingly converted to digital movies, etc.After running Photorec and recovering much of the data to another disk, I'd like to be able to rename the music files using whatever exif data/tags are available.
Running kubuntu 11.04x64 w/ xrender and folder-view plasmoid:
I cannot view "open with" for directories on the desktop (but it is visible w/in dolphin file structure) and whenever I try to rename folders on the desktop it crashes and restarts (but the rename is successful and no open windows crash).
This glitch is reproducible under OpenGL and Xrender; had to switch over to xrender after a recent system update that seems to slow my computer to a crawl after a little time and kept it cause it seems much smoother and crisper.
Is there any way to fix these issues or is there an alternative to the folder-view plasmoid to view a folder content on the desktop that is more stable?
I have an FTP account that when they log in they go to /var/ftp/uploads according to etc/passwd.I want to temporarily stop the uploads from coming in, but don't want to change the password on that account. If I rename the uploads folder to something else, what will happen when they go to log in since the /var/ftp/uploads path is no longer valid?
Installed Ubuntu along with Debian on my Notebook and use Grub Manager to choose between them on startup. Since i like Debian now a lot (in past days it was a very hard system to handle, but there has been some progress i noticed), i have to change some things (want Debian as main system now) For Ubuntu i have: (was meant to be main system on Notebook) "/", "/home" and a "swap" partition, but since i am now going to use mainly Debian, i wanted to store my files all in the "/home"-folder of my extended Ubuntu partition (has much more space available) not in the "/home" folder of the Debian system. So i want both (Debian and Ubuntu) to use the same extended partition ("/home") which i created for Ubuntu to save their files like downloads, videos, and so on.
I don't know what just happened, but all my photos are gone, as are just about all the other files in my home directory. The file structures are there (all the folders and subfolders under /home/matt/pictures), but there are no files in any of them.
Scattered around the home folder, there are folders that still have stuff in them, but lots are empty. Pictures are by far the most precious thing gone.
I was playing around in a Virtualbox install of PC Linux and trying to get my home folder to display there. Did I do something bad? (I was granting read/write).
Nothing in trash. I have a backup that is fairly recent, but I'm afraid I might lose some precious stuff.
in a fresh CentOS server (64b), after setting up vsftpd server (like i did many times), when using ftp protocol, i can't see the content of the home ftp folder, afetr when using sftp then i can see them, to fix ftp issue i did stop iptables and the router config is fine, but the problem is still there.is there any other app that is preventing me from using ftp, this a fresh installation (knowing that i have another CentOS (32)) with vsftpd and working great?
I want to move a simple .rules file from a downloaded package which I have extracted to my homefolder, to the rules.d folder. So I open both Nautilus windows and drag it over, and I get the great "permission denied" error
I upgraded from ubuntu 9.10 to 11.04. During installation (Natty) I chosen the option to encrypt the home folder. After a day the system crashed. It was showing that disk is having health problems. If I boot from live cd then i cant access the home folder. When I tried to mount the home folder, it says "Reading directory: input/output error"
Because I used Karmic without problem I reinstalled the Karmic, then I can mount the home folder, but cant access it as it was encrypted.Now Karmic is installed. I tried to boot from Live CD of Natty and tried to mount /home folder, it says some super-block issues.How to access the files in the home folder?
I'm running ubuntu 64-bit server edition so ill have to use the command line for this. i want to create or change a file in my own home folder, i have to do it as sudo, otherwise i get an error message saying "permission denied".
All I want to do is rename the folder containing my VMs but when I do that it breaks the VMs. In the settings of the individual VMs under Storage, there is a location for the .vdi file which I think may be the culprit but I see no way to change it. So is there a way to easily just rename the folder without importing/exporting the entire VM?
I had Fedora 7 and Windows-XP dual operating system. Few weeks ago, there was GRUB error. Now I want to install Fedora 14, but before it I want to back up all data in one external hard drive. I used Fedora 13 live-CD I could access all the drive formatted as NTFS, but I couldn't access /home and the drive formatted (ext2) and owned by the user-name.
Please, inform if there is any idea to copy my files that remains in the home folder. (I can see them but copying is prevented)
While trying to install a new copy of my distro today, I paid attention for the first time to the installer asking what the /home partition will be (presumably meaning I can put my /home partition of a partition separate from the operating system). Can I safely install /home on the partition where I keep all my non-Linux-related data? Will that be deleted or otherwise disturbed? (Space is not a problem.)
I was curious if I could have the home folder system from a desktop install point to a set of home folders over on the server? It would streamline my backups and make files a bit more central for accessing
I was messing around with fed 12 yesterday (only on a test installation) and i've hit a snag. I installed openbox and tint2, nitrogen, obconf etc so i could have a #!-style session at startup. It all worked fine until i installed pcmanfm and removed nautilus. The problem is that i can't display files in my home directory, either using pcmanfm, a reinstalled nautilus, or in terminals. Every time i try to point a file brower there it just seems to get stuck searching forever, until i kill it. Weirdly in terminator i can do an 'ls' to see visible files, but 'ls -la' causes the problem again.
ps i thought permissions might have something to do with it, so i did a 'chmod -R 777' as root. it changed permissions for quite a lot of the files but then froze again, and now the problem persists.
I installed Fedora 12 a couple of days ago. This is my secondary operating system. The main one is Mint 8 and in order to have the same documents in both OSs I have a separate /home partition, but for some reason I don't see any of my Documents. In the installation I told fedora that I already had a /home partition and to use it. Also if I mount Mint's disk, while I can browse the folders, I can't see any document .
Finally I can access my Mint's home folder and files but since my username in fedora has a capital A it created another home folder. How can I change my home folder path so it point to the other home folder?
I messed up the whole thing and the settings. Created some new thing named rhk which I can't remember as it got all messed up and Now I am getting nothing after Linux Mint 10(julia) boots up - no start menu, no panel, no taskbar nothing. I tried to work in the recovery mode and got some(downloaded) 216mb of something(in the repair broken packages). Moreover whenver I have booted in it shows messages like Could not update ICEauthority file /home/rk./.ICEauthority
there is a problem with the configuration server. (usr/lib/libconfig24/gconfsanitycheck2 exited with status 256) The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID: NOME_mintMenu" The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID: GNOME_IndicatorApplet" Naulitis could not create the following reqiured folders: /home/rk/Desktop, /home/rk/. Naulitis Moreover Alt+F2 gives Run application or run with file and nothing seems to be working.
