Tilda: terminal disappearance

Today we speak of "Tilda”, a small utility for GNU/Linux useful to those who are getting to grips with the terminal.

Tilda is a small terminal disappearance, called up by pressing a key or combination of keys more. The project open source "Tilda" is very small, and the only objective of the project is the "terminal disappearance”. (more…)

Resize all images in a directory

This mini-howto is taken from blog in Kayowas.

Imagemagik is an exceptional tool, I would say essential, it allows an almost endless array of processing on the images.

In systems derived from Debian, the installation is quite a:

[user@localhost ~]$ sudo apt-get install imagemagick

To vary the size of all images in a given directory, you must use the tool "mogrify"In the following way: (more…)

“Print” time and date automatically in a photo

Today we are insert current date and time in an image using the terminal. By itself, the procedure is not complicated, let's see how.

Meanwhile, we see how to make us say the date and time from PC:

[user@localhost ~]$ echo $(date -R)
Tue, 24 Aug 2010 11:45:04 +0200

And now let's see how place it in the we are interested in using ImageMagick. This program allows us to perform many image manipulation, without having to go through the GUI. There is also a primitive graphical interface, but ImageMagick is mainly used for a number of automation (that soon we will see) command line, the invoked by PHP. (more…)

Stream images from the webcam every minute with GNU / Linux

Recently I was asked how he could do to organize a stream webcam that may control the Weather Conditions of a given area. The images of the stream must then be placed on a dedicated page of a site. Unfortunately, (or fortunately) I had to run into a big problem that at first seemed insurmountable: la webcam is locally attached, the server that hosts the site è remote.

This small detail was going to make me give up, when I remembered the existence of “Curlftpfs” (where there we have already discussed) to mount the remote FTP seen by the system as if it were a local. A real godsend. (more…)

Shell: burn at the command line

Recently I've had to burn an iso. So far I have always entrusted k3b the brazier. I wanted to change right now, because brasero do not let me delete the disk (speaks of imaginary plugin), mentre k3b using the kde libraries (I do not want to load into my Gnome). The only alternative (perhaps not the only, but the one I most accredited) It is the use of command line. (more…)

Mount the remote FTP locally with “curlftpfs”

Today is a little advice for the use’FTP in a very simple way. Curlftps usually is not automatically installed in major distributions, although this can be easily found in repository. As always the installation instructions are the usual: “yum -y install curlftpfs” to Red Hat, and “apt-get install curlftpfs” to Debian. Furthermore curlftpfs is a program command line, to my knowledge has not been created yet gui, despite this, the operation is simple and I will not go into explanations: (more…)

Shell: some command to start

The “shell” di GNU/Linux (the terminale) is a very important part of any system GNU/Linux, and although it has been largely “bypassed” by the various GUI, remains the most direct way “communicate” with the machine without many intermediaries.

This article aims to show the most common commands (the most widely used) to the command line: (more…)
