  • An alias i made for myself to play music in a faster way. Works great when you have Guake / Tilda installed (Console that drops down like in the game QUAKE) --- I put this in my bash_alias file (I'm on ubuntu, the bash_alias file does autostart with the right config) but it works putting it in bashrc too. Or anything that autostarts when the console is opened. --- Needs Mplayer and music files to work. With out music theres nothing to play! Oh, and also, without modification, this alias will try to play stuff from your ~/Music folder! (case sensitive). Make sure that folder exists and has music OR edit this alias to fit your needs. Show Sample Output


    -2
    alias mux='clear && cd ~/Music/ && ls && echo -n "File> " && read msi && mplayer ~/Music/$msi'

  • This is the alias command that I discussed in my prior release which you can add to your ~/.bashrc. This command asks for the station name and then connects to somafm, Great for those who have linux home entertainment boxes and ssh enabled on them, just for the CLI fiends out there ( I know I'm one of them ;) You can find future releases of this and many more scripts at the teachings of master denzuko - denzuko.co.cc.


    -2
    alias somafm='read -p "Which station? "; mplayer --reallyquiet -vo none -ao sdl http://somafm.com/startstream=${REPLY}.pls'

  • Execute this in the root of your music library and this recurses through the directories and normalizes each folder containing mp3s as a batch. This assumes those folders hold an album each. The command "normalize-audio" may go by "normalize" on some systems.


    -2
    find . -type d -exec sh -c "normalize-audio -b \"{}\"/*.mp3" \;

nohup that doesn't generate nohup.out
I'm sure this can be piped into another way. Please share!

Create the directoty recursively

Better way to use notify-send with at or cron
we don't need to export variables to set a env to a command, we may do this before the command directly

HourGlass
Displays an animated hourglass for x amount of seconds

ls -qaltr # list directory in chronological order, most recent files at end of list
I find it very handy to be able to quickly see the most recently modified/created files in a directory. Note that the "q" option will reveal any files with non-printable characters in their filename.

Get current Xorg resolution via xrandr
Not sure if it works the same on any shell.

Search some text from all files inside a directory

list files recursively by size

Restart Xen XAPI
Restarts the XAPI service on the host, mostly used by Xen Center. It does not affect any running VMs, just the Xen client tools that may be connected. On my list as XAPI frustratingly keeps running out of memory and getting killed off.

Get Unique Hostnames from Apache Config Files
Get a list of all the unique hostnames from the apache configuration files. Handy to see what sites are running on a server. A slightly shorter version.
