General :: Move A File To Some Path And Create That Path When It Doesn't Exist?

Oct 8, 2010

I use this command:

Code:

find ./ -atime +360

to figure out the files that haven't been accessed since 360 days. The command above will return results like this:

Code:

/uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext
/uploads/2009/08/another-file-name.ext
... etc

I'm taking here about tins of directories, thousands of files. I'm looking to find a command that makes me able to move the results above to another path, and to create that path once it doesn't exist like below:

Code:

mv /uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext /old-files/uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext

But I want the executed command to create this path

Code:

/old-files/uploads/2010/02/

If it doesn't exist.

Ubuntu :: Cant Find Trash Bin

Jul 8, 2011

I'm not able to delete files, because Xubuntu doesn't find the trash bin. An error message pops up, telling me that the bin couldnt be found or created. Some days ago I deleted some .trash and other hidden files from a USB-stick, maybe this is the reason.How could I recover the bin?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Can't Find Trash Folder?

May 13, 2011

I accidentally deleted an important folder from my desktop and now need to get into the trash folder to restore it. I thought that it is und by opening my home folder (nautilus?) and that is shows up in the list in the pane on the left. Now I only see two items listed there - "Home Folder" and "File System," and the trash folder is not in either of them. Not even if I select to view hidden files.I know how to get to it from the command line and view what is inside:

Code:
cd ~/.local/share/Trash/info; ls
But I would prefer to navigate to it in the gui

Fedora :: Cannot Find The Trash Icon On Desktop?

Jan 21, 2010

I have another complaint:I cannot find the Trash icon. I want to clean up my disk space. I googled how to delete files and I wasn't sure which way was best. I sometimes use the 'trash' and 'empty trash bin' except I cannot find the icon.I assume there is a command for doing that but after googling, there are only a few (OLDER) posts or articles of doing it in older versions of Fedora and they're all Gnome-based. My install is KDE.

Ubuntu :: Find The Path To Dependencies?

Sep 24, 2010

I am trying to install Staden on a Ubuntu 10.04 machine (64bit). It requires a number of dependencies to be installed prior to configuring the source. I was fortunate to find all of them using the synaptic package manager. now for the configure command I need to specify where these dependencies are as options.

how do I find the programs that I need to reference as options to the configure command such as: tcl, tk, zlib, xz utils, libpng, curl, tklib, itcl, itk, etc. Is there a standard directory that synaptic uses or what?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Move File To Trash / Solution For This?

May 13, 2011

This started happening last week. Whenever I try to delete a file that is not in my /home directory I get the message:

Cannot move file to trash, do you want to delete immediately.

I have found a couple threads in the forums about this issue, but it has always been associated with windows or samba shares.

This is happening on my computer, not on a shared folder or through samba. Its a little frustrating to say the least.

Ubuntu :: How To Find The Current (installation) Path Of A Tool

Jul 12, 2010

Assume I call a certain tool in terminal like

foobar -myoption

But a) there exists more than one installation of "foobar" on the system or b) I don't know where "foobar" is installed.

How can I find out WHICH foobar resp. WHICH path belongs to the currently active foobar tool?

I prefer a cmdline command with option similar to:

findactivepath -tool=foobar
....
Output: Used location=/usr/bin/foobar

I don't want to dig around with PATH investigations by searching every PATH component. Furthermore I don't want to get recommendations and expectations like "normally tools are installed in...". Think of unusual installed software.

Ubuntu Networking :: File 'path Omyfile' Has Been Changed On The File System?

May 28, 2010

I have asked this over on Launchpad and have found bugs filed on the eclipse bug tracker but it seems to be going nowhere so I guess ill ask here.

I am using Eclipse for some development work and having saved a file, defocus the eclipse window (to test changes in a browser) when I refocus the eclipse window I get the following error...

The file 'path omyfile' has been changed on the file system.Do you want to replace the editor contents with these changes?

I have searched and searched and this seems to be a CIFS/SAMBA problem. I even found one solution suggesting that changing his mounts from cifs to smbfs fixed his problem however that would appear not to be an option for me since using smbfs in the fstab causes cifs mounts. This problem would seem to occur in Bluefish as well as some other IDE's so it is not an Eclipse issue.

Programming :: Find With A Regex Path?

May 5, 2010

I'm using bash scripting to find any file that matches a path governed by the following regular expression:

"(monthly|nightly).[0-9]+/home/(user1|user2)/.mailbox/"
to match files like:
monthly.9/home/user1/.mailbox/l23131564
nightly.15/home/user2/.mailbox/cur/6546213

I've tried:

Code:
myRegex="(monthly|nightly).[0-9]+/home/(user1|user2)/.mailbox/"
find ./ -regextype posix-egrep -regex $myRegex

and it just spins and never gives me an answer, even though the file structure isn't that big.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installations Got Messed Up - Programs Don't Find Path To Run

Jan 14, 2010

I have this weird problem. The other day I asked a question about restore the backup file after dual boot installation. I have done the dual boot ( XP installed first) then restored the backup file. Now the problem is that I forgot if I excluded system files from backup or not, so when I restored and rebooted, my installations got messed up, many programs do not find their path to run, etc. But the real problem is when I rebooted again, I got error 15: file not found tried to follow some other posts here to solve this and noticed that running fdisk -l gives me:

Debian :: Find & Modify Path Statement

Jul 19, 2011

I am running Debian Squeeze, 64-bit.I would like to try my hand at bash scripting. So at the author's suggestion (first chapter of Chris F. A. Johnson, Pro Bash Scripting from apress) I created a /bin directory in my home directory. So now I would like to modify my PATH statement so that when I run a script from my bin directory my shell will find it.I did that. He then says that I should add this to ".bash_profile, .bashrc, or .profile depending on how bash is invoked." The find command is unable to locate any of these files. So I searched the forum, found the link above and tried to follow that. No luck so I assume that how Debian handles PATH statements has changed since that post?

I also have checked the wiki and worked Google as hard as I know how to do.Very simply where the heck is my PATH statement and how do I modify it?
