    I found a solution in here.

    The problem is somehow related to the Ubuntu's Head-Up Display (HUD). Using the keyboard settings I set the Windows key (Super L) as the key that launches HUD.

    Vaphell,

    thank you for joining the effort! You are right:

    steeldriver,

    thank you very much! This talk of associative arrays makes my palms sweat - is it fear, is it eager anticipation? It will take days for me to apply this idea, but I shall try.

  5. Re: In search of a semiautomatic filing system - Bash newbie

    schragge,

    thank you very much! I shall test these ideas. I suppose at least the idea of using the case statement would make the code a little bit more efficient.

  6. In search of a semiautomatic filing system - Bash newbie

    I use PDF printing to collect news items and other articles. Consequently I have saved about 1500 files in my ‘PDF’ folder. At times I move some of these files to directories that are organized by...
  7. Re: Finding and deleting directories and files with similar names

    Thank you - it is so clear
    (when somebody explains it).
  8. Re: Finding and deleting directories and files with similar names

    For me the best solution was


    while read -r dir; do rm "${dir%_files}".html && rm -rf "$dir"; done < folders.txt

    Thank you both! It is amazing what you can do when you have about 100 times the beans I have. I'll have to take a weekend break here.

    When running

  12. Re: Finding and deleting directories and files with similar names

    I tried

    while read -r dir; do echo rm "${dir%_files}".html && echo rmdir "$dir"; done < folders.txt

  13. Re: Finding and deleting directories and files with similar names

    Thanks for the words of wardning. I have taken precautions - there is an up to date safety copy of my home folder.

  14. Re: Finding and deleting directories and files with similar names

    Thank you - I am new to this so I do not understand what makes this command to delete the htm or html files as well. I must be reading your suggestion somehow incorrectly. To me it seems it deletes...

    Yes that is right, I want to get rid of both the htm/html file and its associated folder.
  16. Finding and deleting directories and files with similar names

    On my computer there are about 900 redundant internet folders with the extension
