Ubuntu :: Creation Date For Directories Isn't Stored Or At Least Couldn't Find It?

Feb 19, 2010

i'm trying to make a script that gives one output if a directory in /home is older than one month, and another if the directory is less than one month old. I looked around and saw that the creation date for directories isn't stored, or at least i couldn't find it? How is this possible to do then?

Ubuntu :: List Files By Creation Date?

Aug 19, 2010

I'm looking for a terminal command that gives me the latest created folder in a directory tree.


ls -lR --sort=time --reverse

this i almost good, but a) it gives me files (rather than folders only), b) it sorts the files by folder (rather than just giving me a plain list of everything) and c) it takes way to long.

what i want:


2010-08-01 ./path/to/folder/a
2010-08-03 ./path/to/folder/b
2010-08-06 ./another/folder/c

Fedora :: Rename JPG Files To Creation Date

Sep 2, 2009

I have a list of .jpg files from two cellphones that I would like to rename to the file creation date... but so far I can't seem to find a suitable script (or anything remotely close to what I need).

These are jpg's snapped on cellphone cameras, so no EXIF data exists.

General :: Adding A Files Creation Date To It's File Name?

Sep 17, 2010

I have some basic experiencing creating simple scripts/making directories/changing permissions/etc. but I'm stumped on this one.

I have two linux boxes. I have a script set up on box 'A' to SCP into box 'B', grab a copy of a database backup and store it on box 'A'. It looks like this:

scp root@X.X.X.X:/blah/blah/blah/dump.23.gz /home/blah/DB_Backups/

I have generated a public key on box 'A' and placed it into the authorized_keys file on box 'B', so a password is not required and the file copies over successfully when the script is run. On to my problem...

I need to know what date the 'dump.23.gz' file was originally created when I'm viewing it after it's been copied to box 'A'. If I ls -l on box 'A' it only shows me the date it was created on box 'A' when it was copied.

What would I need to add to my script to append the backup's original creation date on box 'B' to the filename so that when it gets copied to box 'A' I know when the backup was created on box 'B'. I'm sure this is probably confusing. I've done lots of searching and can only find information on how to append the current date and time to a file name. I need to append it's original creation timestamp to the filename when it copies over.

General :: Merge Files By Creation / Modification Date?

Oct 4, 2010

I have a folder with hundreds of .txt files (logs of some java application) that I have to merge in to one single .txt file. This application produces a new log file everyday:

day1: logFriday10September2010.txt
day2: logSaturday11September2010.txt
day8: logFriday17September2010.txt
and so on...

I could merge the files easily with "cat" and ">>" however, the problem is that I have to do it by taking into account the date (creation or modification) of the file.

If I simple use the cat command the output file will receive for example, all Fridays in a row, then all Saturdays, etc. and in that way I'm not considering the date.

I've searched for the options of the find command, since the files after creation are not modified...I try to use this for example:

$ find . -newer <some old file>

but that lists me all files after that <old file> and not by correct date.

Software :: Change Creation Date Of .mpg / .avi Videos In Digikam?

Feb 16, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and have been using digikam to get my photos and videos in order. A lot of the creation dates are messed up, but I have been using the "adjust time and date" tool in Digikam to ge the photos set to their correct creation date.

However, when I try to do that on a .mpg or .avi I get an error that reads "Unable to adjust metadata in ****.mpg" I've tried opening the videos in other programs, like avidemux and cinelerra, I even tried opening the properties section of the videos. I haven't been able to find a way to modify the creation date of videos.

Is there a way to change the creation date of videos on Ubuntu? I would prefer to use digikam, but at this point I'm open to anything. Do I need to download a plugin? A program? Use a command line command?

General ::anything Special About Home Directory Before Users' Home Directories Are Stored There

Jun 19, 2010

Is there anything special about a home directory before users' home directories are stored there, or is just as typical as any other "empty" folder?Let me just cut to the chase, but please no ear ringing about the folly of messing around as root, particularly with directories at root level. I know it's considered stupidity, but I deleted my home directory.

Is there an easy way to restore a working home directory? I tried copying /etc/skel under root, but I'm not sure what a home directory should look like once it has been restored. Besides . & .., there were .screenrc & .xsession in my home directory when I copied /etc/skel. Are these files suppose to be in "/home" or "/home/~" or both?

Ubuntu Security :: Iptables - Where To Find IP's That's Stored With RECENT

Apr 18, 2010

I'm playing around with iptables on Ubuntu 10.04 Beta2.


That's what I got so far. Accoring to iptables man pages: "/proc/net/ipt_recent/* are the current lists of addresses and information about each entry of each list." There's nothing like that there on my Ubuntu installation. There's a file that's called /proc/net/ip_tables_matches. However, it doesn't contain the information I'm looking for. It contains:


where I can find the file where iptables stores the matching IPs? Also, can anyone verify that I have put the rules in the right order for them to work?

Ubuntu :: Find Command For Multiple Filenames Stored In List?

May 3, 2011

I searched the forum and didn't find any threads that seemed to answer this question. I have a large directory of files, and dozens of subdirectories on a remote box I have ssh access to. I need a subset of these files copied to another folder.



files I want (the files are all the same format, but some have extensions and others dont)

Unfortunately, I need a lot of files, and plan to do this on a regular basis (the files I need will be different each time) I was thinking it would be nice to be able to put the filenames in a text file (one filename per line) and use the find command to copy the files (I don't necessarily know which subdirectory the file will be in).

Software :: Unable To Find Any Stored Data In Kwalletmanager

Oct 6, 2010

I'm probably doing something stupid, but I thought I'd ask here, because I'm stumped. I'm on slackware 12.2, KDE 3.5 and AIR 2.02.When Echofon abruptly stopped linux support, I switched to tweetdeck (v. It worked great, and they recently pushed a new update. I installed it, deleted the ELS directory in ~/.appdata/Adobe/AIR, and it was unable to find any stored data in kwalletmanager. (I got the error that it wasn't able to find any stored data and that AIR isn't installed properly--the error one gets when tweetdeck is started without kwalletmanager running.)

I deleted the entry in kwalletmanager for AIR, deleted the ELS directory again, and restarted it. Same error, and no new entry in kwalletmanager was made. I downgraded to the previous version (, and it worked perfectly once more.

Ubuntu :: Couldn't Find Instructions Online

Oct 25, 2010

I'm new to linux, have been somewhat of a computer geek my whole life and thought it about time that I delved into the world of linux. So I installed ubuntu 10.04 on my computer. I love it. However, I can't get my wireless to work. In my dorms there are no ethernet hookups, so I have to use the wireless. I typed "sudo lshw -class network" into the root terminal. The important things that I figured out was the bus info: pci@0000:4:06.0 and the pysical id: 6 (not sure if the physical id is important but it sounds like it is). I then did a lspci and found that at bus 04:06.0 it is a RaLink Device 3060. I downloaded the .tar file for the driver. I could not find instructions for it online so I followed the ones for the rt2860 driver : [URL].... I could not get it to work, It built ok and installed ok, but when I do the modprobe I get an error saying the device or resource is busy. Either that or that it cannot be found. One thing that I found weird was that I couldn't get it to build a 3060 driver, it would only build a 3562 one.

I'd like to know if anyone knows where this pw data is stored on the system so I can start fresh. I already tried uninstalling Remote Desktop Viewer and installing it again.
