Copy files on Linux with exclude

May 16th, 2015

This is what I use to make a backup copy of all my images to a temporary folder in Linux. It excludes a number of file extensions, like the ones for movies. It is executed from the folder that contains the files you want to copy.

sudo tar cvf - * --exclude *.MTS --exclude *.mpg --exclude 
*.MPG --exclude *.mp4 --exclude *.modd --exclude *.db 
--exclude *.avi --exclude *.AVI --exclude *.THM --exclude 
*.idx --exclude *.info --exclude *.mov --exclude *.MOV 
--exclude *.zip --exclude *.dat --exclude *.db  --exclude 
adirectory/* | ( cd /media/spruit/ausbstick; tar xfp -)

Jack issue after upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04

September 20th, 2014

After upgrading Ubuntu to 14.04 I had two problems.

– No sound from Spotify via webbrowser anymore.

Solved by: Installing pulseaudio-module-jack (4.0-0ubuntu11). This caused my PulseAudio JACK Sink to be available again. In PulseAudio Volume Control I then had to set the ALSA plug-in (under tab Afspelen/Play) to Jack sink.

– No connection anymore between my midi keyboard and the Jack Mixer. I could not control the volume in Jack Mixer via my keyboard anymore. The connection was visible in the JACK Audio Connection Kit via Patchbay (loaded via my patchbay configuration file patchbaydefault.xml), but did not get propagated to my connections in the JACK Audio Connection Kit. This was caused by a change in the name of the plug for my midi keyboard. Probably due to some previous re-installing.

Old value in patchbaydefault.xml:

<socket exclusive=”off” client=”a2j” type=”jack-midi” name=”a2j_Oxygen_61″><plug>Oxygen 61 \[20\] \(capture\): Oxygen 61 MIDI 1</plug></socket>

New value that worked:

<socket exclusive=”off” client=”a2j” type=”jack-midi” name=”a2j_Oxygen_61″><plug>Oxygen 61 \[24\] \(capture\): Oxygen 61 MIDI 1</plug></socket>

Solved by: Deleting the plugs via Patchbay and re-creating the connection. I probably also could have changed the xml file directly.
