Ubuntu :: Remove Directories That *don't* Contain A File - Safe Testing Method?

Apr 15, 2011

I'm trying to clean up an iTunes-sorted Music directory. For whatever reason, it contains a large number of folders that have album art, but no music. I'm actually more concerned about a safe way to test my removal batch, but I thought I'd paste everything I did in case it's useful to someone. Based on this thread, I came up with the following script:

find ./*/* -type f -iregex ".*(mp3|m4a)" | sort | while read line ; do
echo "${line%/*}" >> file1
sort -u file1 > fileuniq


But I'm scared to just run this on my music folder. Is there any way to run rm in "test mode", so that I would just see verbose output, but it wouldn't actually delete anything? Failing that, does anyone see anything wrong with my plan?

Ubuntu :: Safe To Remove Unity?

Jun 1, 2011

So I upgraded Ubuntu and was greeted by Unity. I was unsure of it at first and figured I would give it a shot. It has failed miserably in almost every way aside from looking nice in some instances. It's slow, clunky, and was a total wreck to my efficient use of the computer. But they can't all be winners I suppose. I can see where it would be useful (since it seems more finger-friendly) on a tablet device, but I'm using a standard notebook, not a tablet.

That being said, I switched back to what is now "Ubuntu (Classic)" and have put things happily back on track. However, since I have no intentions of ever bothering with Unity again, I want to remove it - it's just wasting space. My questions are, would this be safe? Are Unity and Ubuntu entwined to the point where doing so would make future updating/upgrading a problem? If it is a problem for the future, I feel it would be easier to just change distros (Mint, OpenSUSE, or just Kubuntu) - any recommendations?

I'd like to remove all directories of a certain depth that don't contain .txt or .log files -- is this possible? So far I have: find ~ -mindepth 3 -maxdepth 4 -type d -exec rm -r '{}' ; Is it possible to add in "only if the directory doesn't contain .txt and/or .log files"? Or do I have to start learning perl to do that?

For example:

Programming :: Mod_rewrite Remove Sub-directories From URL?

Apr 25, 2011

I have tried this a million ways, got it to work once but it didn't work sitewide for some reason. I have a url: [URL] and I want it to be found by going to: [URL] I am using this


RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/agents/tp/
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/?$ agents/tp/$1/index.php [L]

and have also tried something as basic as


RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/agents/tp/
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ agents/tp/$1/index.php [L]

I keep getting "The requested URL /JoeAgent/ was not found on this server." why it's not working?

Ubuntu :: Can't Run Unity With A Window Manager / Solution For This?

May 15, 2011

I've managed to completely ruin my system for like the millionth time.

Basically my story is this. I cannot seem to run both unity and a window manager/decorator at the same time. Perhaps it is partially because I am not entirely sure what the current window manager is these days.

I thought it was metacity since that has been the default in the past. I ran a code...

I would really like to be able to move windows. I am typing this from my web browser which is permanently stuck in the position it launched in on my screen.

Ubuntu :: Remove Unnecessary Lefthand Taskbar In Unity?

May 3, 2011

I have taken the largest chill pill I could find and have reinstalled nutty into a spare partition with a view to taking a more forgiving approach... i'll mostly stand by the rants for the time being... Has anyone found a simple (or complex for that matter - I just want it gone!) way to disable the randomly activated lefthand vertical taskbar in unity?It really is an unnecessary irritation when I can put my essential apps down the bottom where they belong with docky (thus reducing mouse mileage on my widescreen) and have everything else a WinKey+App away.Interesting that typing "Configuration" into the search box returns 0 results on a default natty install **** Additional ****Tweaking the Unity Plugin through Advanced Compiz Manager (and gconf-editor) leads me believe that I am after a "feature" that is not available:in gconf-editor:/apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/launcher_hide_modeis the key I would like to have an additional option of "Always" added the currently available options being "0 = Never, 1 = Autohide, 2 = Dodge Windows, 3 = Dodge Active Window"

Security :: Remove Read/write/execute Permeation From Directories In '/' For 'others' ?

May 4, 2010

I was running '# ls -l' in '/' directory and I noticed all directories in '/' have the following permeation 'drwxr-xr-x' [except root's home which is 'drwx------' (after I change it from 'drwxr-xr-x' )]

I don't want all the user (except root) to be able to read and execute (in) any directory, I just want every user to be abel to read/write/execute only in his/her home directory.

my question is, is it ok to change file and directory permeation of the following directories in '/' from 'drwxr-xr-x' to 'drwxr-x---' or 'drwx------' recursively?



-I and the other users use the pc for internet, open office and email mainly.

-It does not run server(s) like smb/cif or NFS.

-There are 5 usernames (created by me, non of them are superusers) in th pc, only one user is required to login at any one time.

To make Unity useful for me I need to make some changes. I wonder if it's possible to:

1. Hide the top panel or (better) remove it completely (I can live without global menu).

Ubuntu :: Everytime Adjust A Setting In The CompizConfig Settings Manager - The Top Unity Bar Wigs Out And Disappears

Everytime I adjust a setting in the CompizConfig Settings Manager, the top unity bar wigs out and disappears, it is still clickable but its invisible. Is there any simple fix to this? I don't think it's my hardware because other people are getting this too. I really don't like restarting/logging off my computer everytime I make a compiz change.

Ubuntu :: Update Manager Tries To Remove Applications

I was wondering why some programs are removed when doing a (partial) upgrade. For instance the Nvidia drivers, the network manager and some other server components are removed.

This is very annoying since you're receiving updates on a regular basis.
