OpenSUSE Install :: Batch Rename Files With Special Characters?

Dec 10, 2010

I have about 300 files that need renaming, because the file system does not display the French characters properly. The dodgy letter in question has been replaced by a "question mark in a black diamond" symbol.No way of renaming, other then using mv in the Konsole has worked. Is there any way, script or program out there, that will do a batch rename?

Ubuntu :: Command / Script To Rename Files In Datetime Order?

Jun 1, 2010

I'm trying to rename all files in a folder as such:

1.jpg
2.jpg
3.jpg

Renaming them is no problem, the problem I have is, they need to be in order of the datetime that they were taken, so that the 1.jpg would be the oldest file there. The difference in filetimes is going to be very small, around 3 or 4 tenths of a second.

The reason I need to do this is that I have another script (not quite finished yet), that takes the next three files in a loop and applies qtpfsgui to them to output an HDR image to another folder, then move on to 4,5 & 6, and: repeat.

Programming :: Rename Files Matching A List?

Jul 12, 2009

Is there a way, preferably in python or BASH, to rename files from a list? for instance, track1.mp3, track2.mp3 should be renamed to the names stored in a file listing song names. I have tried to loop a variable through directory listing and renamed them, only to find that filenames with spaces can't be assigned to a variable as a whole. To solve the problem above, I have tried the read command in BASH, which enables the program reading line by line from a list. However, It was failed to pipe the results from directory listing to the read command.

Software :: How To Maintain RAID Disk Order

Jul 15, 2010

I have a system with data stored in multiple disk arrays. I have to come up with a solution that will maintain the disk order of the arrays whenever a stripe fails, is removed and then put back in. One solution I came up with was to stamp every stripe with the disk array it belongs to along with its stripe id. I plan to put this stamp in the last 512 KB of each disk. And I maintain all this information in a sqlite database, that is disk array, stripe id, the software diskname, etc. So that whenever a disk is replaced, its stamp could be read and the corresponding entries in the database are updated.

Software :: DigiKam: Pictures Disappear After Using Batch Rename?

Jan 17, 2010

I selected 10 photos and used the batch rename feature (Batch -> Rename Images). Once I had the settings set and accepted the changes, the tool successfully renamed all 10 photos. The problem is I can't see them in digiKam anymore. It's just an empty album. When I navigated to the folder using Dolphin, all the pictures were still there and they were properly renamed. Back in digiKam, it's just an empty folder. I tried moving the photos to a different directory and then adding that folder to digiKam, but it still showed up as an empty folder.

I don't know what to do. How can I get this app to see my pictures again?

How do you rename:

but I have thousands of files like these.

General :: Rename Images So They Burn To CD In Order

May 7, 2011

I have a bunch of images named:

1.jpg
2.jpg
317.jpg
317 (2)a.jpg
etc.

In my file browser (Nautilus), they are displayed in the correct numerical order. However, in Brasero when I order them, it orders them strangely (correctly, but not the way I want them to). They order like this:

1
10
100
101

[Code].....

Can someone recommend a naming convention to rename all these files to so they are in the correct order (for example, cameras use IMG_xxxx.JPG, which is nice)?
Can someone give me a Linux command line rename command for these files so they are renamed to display and therefore burn in the correct order?

They're standard JPEG files, so ordering them by the date in the EXIF data might work. I just need the correct commands, or GUI - I don't mind - to get them in order.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Copy Playlist Tracks And Rename According To Track Order?

Oct 2, 2010

I'm currently running Meerkat beta AMD64. I've been using Audacious in Ubuntu for years, before that I used XMMS.

In Windoze I used to use Winamp. Winamp has a plugin called gen_yar. Gen_yar would allow you to right-click on the playlist and copy your current playlist files in track order to any folder on your hard drive, or to a USB mounted mp3 player/thumb drive, whatever.

It had several checkboxes in the settings.

1) Rename the files adding the track number as the prefix (01_, 02_, etc).

2) Create a .m3u playlist of the tracks in that new folder using #EXTINF: instead of the full path. That way I can copy that folder to any gadget or another computer and the playlist will still play those files.

Here is the Winamp Plugin: gen_yar (Yar-matey!_Playlist_Copier) [URL] There's a link to the source code at the bottom of that site if that helps.

Here's another: Winamp Plugin Save Playlist In Order [URL]

I have yet to see this feature in any Linux media software. I've tried just about all of them. The only thing close would be drag-n-drop playlist files from Rhythmbox.

Does anybody know of a plugin for Audacious or Rhythmbox that will do this?

Alternatively, is there a Nautilus script that when I right click on a folder full of mp3s, it will create a playlist of files in that folder, and save that playlist file inside the folder (without the full paths as mentioned above)?

I hate having to boot into Virtual Box just to use Winamp to create portable playlists.

Programming :: Use The Link Grammar Parser In Order To Do Some Part Of Speech Tagging?

May 12, 2011

Probably a stupid sounding question, but bear with me please. I need to use the link grammar parser in order to do some part of speech tagging. It's freely available and works once you run the makefile or 'make' it or however it's correctly said. Thing is, it has a C API which I intend to use. And once I ran a bit of the sample code given in the documentation it gave a whole host of errors. This is very confusing because I'm including the path for the folder that has all the header files.

gcc -I/path/include/ filename.c. But it still gives me errors about not being able to find things that are clearly defined there. An hour of trudging around the internet tells me I need to 'compile' the API first. I'm not exactly sure how or if I'm supposed to do that. If someone could just shed light on this it would be greatly appreciated. I grow increasingly cynical to the musical swell of my tiny brain rattling in my skull.

Ubuntu :: Rename And Delete Lines In Boot List (GRUB 2) - Lucid Lynx

Aug 28, 2010

how to change (rename, delete) lines from boot list in grub 2, Ubuntu 10.04? For example, when I boot my pc, I have a boot list with options "Ubuntu 10.04", "memtest" and "Windows 7". I want to delete "memtest" line, as I don't need it, and rename "Windows 7" line to, for example, "Windows 117". How can I do that? Where I should look and edit? In old grub it was enough to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, but in Ubuntu 10.04 there is no such file and other grub2-related files (like grub.cfg) do not contain this info to rename or delete lines. So, I can't figure out what to do.

Ubuntu :: Terminal Command To List Disk Usage In Order?

Mar 29, 2010

I regularly use 'df -h' to check usage on each of my primary directories and mount points.

I'm currently somewhat confused by disk usage within my filesystem, so I'd like to do the following:

Display directory size of all, or say, the 10 largest, subdirectories to a specified directory. So, if I passed the root (/) directory, output would list the subdirectory of / with the largest disk usage first and its associated disk usage listed in human readable format (either M or G suffix as appropriate), followed by the subdirectory and usage for the second largest directory and so on.

Can anyone suggest a command or series of commands to do this?
