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

Jul 2, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Cp - Copy Only The Folder Contents To New Folder ?

Feb 21, 2010

I should know this but I figured I'd ask before I screw something up.

What is the command to cp just and only the contents of a folder, not the folder itself, into a new folder?

Code: cp -R /path/to/folder/ /to/new/folder/

Is this right?

Ubuntu :: Create A Folder Where You Can Copy Files To But You Can't Delete Them After?

Nov 24, 2010

i'm confronting atm. I need to create a folder where ppl can copy files and i need to be sure that those files cannot be deleted after they are copied there. The folder will be accessed over network, and i need to be sure no one will delete somebody else's files.Also i need to tell you that i'm working with regular users, so creating a folder for each user and chown/chmod-ing it won't do the trick(allready tried and ended up with a whole lot of files in the parent directory).I also tried chattr +a but that doesn't allow them to write new files in the folder.

Fedora :: Copy My Files That Remains In Home Folder?

Apr 24, 2011

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)

General :: Making Script To Copy Files To Another Folder?

Jun 5, 2011

make a simple script to copy files from my "hfiles " directory to a "www" folder at leats I think its a directory, it has the permissions as "lrwxrwxrwx " but its like a public branch So I proceeded to make a file entittled MkPublic to copy the "hfiles" directory to the "www" branch

here is the code i used:

#!/bin/sh
# COPIES FILES
echo "copying files"

[code]....

when i try to run the script it tells me that there is a syntax error and an unexpected end of file and nothing seems to get copied anywhere so clearly there is something wrong with one im doing, i tried multiple ways : using the quotes, spacing the equal signs, but I seem to still get the same results.

Software :: Way To Automatically Copy Files Off Of A Cd To A Specific Folder?

Jun 24, 2011

What would be the best way to automatically copy all of the data off of a library of cds to a specific folder on the computer? I was thinking of running a bash script but I've run into a few snags figuring out the correct way to do it. Mainly due to the fact that the cd drive is mounted in a different folder in /media each time I insert a new diskAlso, the mounting and unmounting process causes it's own problems, but I think that could be covered by a for loop that checks /mtab every few seconds or so.

General :: Copying All .jpg Or .JPG Files From A Folder And All Its Subfolders To /usr/name/pictures Folder?

How would i go about copying all .jpg or .JPG files from a folder and all its subfolders to my /usr/name/pictures folder? I'm guessing I'd have to use some sort of .[jJ][pP][gG] to get all the pictures from other examples i've seen, but really not sure how to use that in a recursive cp.

Ubuntu Networking :: User Can't Append To Files In Samba Shared Folder

Jun 18, 2010

I'm setting up a network between 2 pc's where the one should act like "file server" and a normal pc to surf on internet.called ORLA-DESKTOP and the other pc is called OLGA-DESKTOP a pc connecting to the server and automounting the shared folder to the desktop Both pc's run ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx The shared folder is located on the server in /home/orla/svenson

ORLA-DESKTOP have 2 users "olga" and "orla" in a group called "svenson"
OLGA-DESKTOP have 1 registered user "olga" also in group called "svenson"

users on ORLA-DESKTOP can read/write/append and so on and fully manage everything in the shared folder.But on OLGA-DESKTOP the user can make a file on the pc and then drag'n'drop the file the the shared folder, and can also delete files in the shared folder. but cannot create a file directly into the folder like on ORLA-DESKTOP I have 3 configuration files made. 2 for automounting, Located on OLGA-DESKTOP 1 for samba server configurations located on the server ORLA-DESKTOP

The first one is /etc/fstab

Code:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

[code]....

To sum it all up the real problem is that OLGA-DESKTOP can't append to files in the shared folder. but users on the server have no troubles doing it..

Ubuntu :: Made An Error With Chmod - Create User But Don't Allow To See The Other User's Home Folder

I wanted to create an user but don't allow it to see the other user's home folder so I made chmod 0750 /home/folder and it worked fine so I went ahead and decided to completely forbid access to the root folder and I had the "great" idea to make chmod 0750 /, and now I'm having problems with wine and other applications, in example I used to have a folder in this address 209.239.114.51/mmgr but now it's giving me errors and if I try to run some applications I got error "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"
