Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

In this case that `ls` only seems to be for determining whether the file exists.  This is exactly what test's  -e flag is for.  Or potentially -b/-c/-d or -f depending on the limitations you'd like to place.  That looks like LVM stuff with which I have no experience, so I'm not sure which would be best, but certainly even -e would be better than that ls check:

if [ -e "$FILE" ]; then

Also it looks like there are comments in there that aren't commented out.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

good catch i forgot that.

i had it when i was checking if a directory within the drive which i changed latter but missed that.

I went with the -f file its able to read the /dev/mapper/it file. though I guess -e would be better as a general rule for any type of file.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

You may also be interested in the "user" filesystem option, which allows an unprivileged user to mount the filesystem. An example from my fstab:

LABEL=Data /media/usb	ext4	rw,lazytime,data=ordered,user,noauto,nofail	0	0

You can also add similar fstab lines for your various bind mounts. Naturally, you'd include "bind" in the options and could drop most of the others.

that's normally a good idea but in this case i already have to use sudo for other things in this and i have a short time were sudo will be active without needing to enter it every time(though its just long enough), but definitely if I was just mounting also i use a filesystem that preserves user:groups.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Fair enough. Oh, by the way, you might *also* be interested to know that kill(1) can kill processes by name; it is only bash and zsh's builtin kill (which mask it unless you turn off their builtin) that can't. The builtins exist for hysterical raisins.

Run that through ffmpeg when you are done if you want a different format and a file header on it.

Audio example:

ffmpeg -i file.ts -vn -c:a copy file.m4a

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

You would have to call a subprocess from python for watch.

subprocess.Popen([watch...

Same for sleep

subprocess.Popen(['sleep', '3'])

It was meant to be a python way within a python script without having to call a bash subprocess, to explain post #2907

Thanks for the post about watch

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Just a tool to use usbip a little easier and attach usb devices to my remote upboards rpi's etc.
How to use the scripts.
Install usbip on both server & client.
Put the scripts somewhere on server & client.
On the client, create dir. ~/.scripts/usbip-client, or change the paths.
Edit the variables in both scripts and your set to go.

I know next to nothing about the security of usbip and thus run the tool tunneled.
Because I already use SSH, the 'busid', which is also needed on the client, is scp'd to it
If you wish, you can automate the 'atach' option. To do so, setup a ssh user
that only runs the client script, by prepending the command to the key.

If you know of a neat trick to send a 'signoff' to the usbip daemon, that unbind
could be automated, too, oh and please let me know, thanks.

command cycle

ssh -R 3240:localhost:3240 user@remote_host
sh usbip-server bind    (server)
sh usbip-client atach   (client)
You can do your foo now (client)
sh usbip-client dtach   (client)
sh usbip-server ubind   (server)
quit ssh

A little warning:
Be carefull editing the scripts, you may hang the process client and/or ssh.
If you bind a device be sure nothing is using it, beside a disk, on the host.
A usb disk will unmount and than bind automatic, bluetooth f.i. does not.
You may even end up with unresponsive machines (both), I have warned you.
Your admin/company may not be amused, if you use this, should ask first.

I'm open to suggestions, improvements and the like.

The server part:

#!/bin/bash
## usbip daemon script see: man (8) usbipd
set -x

## Change scpaddr & where to store the busid on the client
SCP_ADDRESS() {
    scpadr='mark@172.16.2.6:.scripts/usbip-client'
}

on_exit() {
    local exit_status=${1:-$?}
    echo Exit "$0" with "$exit_status"
    exit "$exit_status"
}
trap  on_exit 0 1 2 3 15

busids=$(busids 2>/dev/null) || busids=/tmp/busids

## Bind usb to usbip
if [[ $1 == bind ]]; then

  if [[ -e "$busids" ]]; then
    printf "%s\n" "busids exists, run option ubind, bailing"
    exit 1
  fi
  
    ## if off, turn usbip daemon on
    #if [[ ! root == $(ps -ef|grep usbipd|awk -F ''$USER'| ' '{print $1}') ]]; then
    if [[ ! usbipd == $(pgrep -l usbipd|awk -F ' ' '{print $2}') ]]; then
      sudo usbipd -4 -D
    fi

      ## List driver assignments for usb devices.
      sudo usbip list --local

      busid=""
      while [[ ! $busid =~ ^[0-9-]+$ ]]; do
        #echo fill in a busid
        read -p "enter busid (example: 1-2) : " busid
      done
  
    ## Need the busids, for the server & client
    echo "$busid" > "$busids"
  
    ## Bind usbip-host.ko to the device of busid 1-2(example)  
    sudo usbip bind --busid="$(<"$busids")"
  
  ## Secure copy busids to the client for a little automation
  SCP_ADDRESS
  scp "$busids" "$scpadr"

## Unbind usb device from usbip
elif [[ $1 == ubind ]]; then

  if [[ -e "$busids" ]]; then
    sudo usbip unbind --busid="$(<$busids)"
    rm -f "$busids"
  else

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

Libinput somehow doesn't read the conf file, cus i coulnd't fix it, just wrote a script to do it manually at startup..


conx.sh

#!/bin/bash

line=$(xinput list | grep -i "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad") #name of the touchpad
number=${line:50:2}
echo "Touchpad is "$number
xoutput=$(xinput list-props $number)


xoutput=$(xinput list-props $number | grep -i "libinput Natural Scrolling Enabled (" )
functionNumber=$(echo $xoutput | grep -o -E '[0-9]+' | head -1 | sed -e 's/^0\+//')
echo "Nat Scroll is "$functionNumber
xinput set-prop $number $functionNumber 0




xoutput=$(xinput list-props $number | grep -i "libinput Tapping Enabled (" )
functionNumber=$(echo $xoutput | grep -o -E '[0-9]+' | head -1) # | sed -e 's/^0\+//')
echo "Tapping is "$functionNumber
xinput set-prop $number $functionNumber 1

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

That's a ridiculous number of subshells, variables, and echoing for no purpose.  For example, the following are equivalent:

line=$(xinput list | grep -i "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad") #name of the touchpad
number=${line:50:2}
echo "Touchpad is "$number
xoutput=$(xinput list-props $number)


xinput list-props $number | grep ...
xinput list-props "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" | grep ...

Also you're burrying grep output in variables only to echo the variable and pass it through grep again, or sed, or head.  "grep -m1 <pattern>" is the same as "grep <pattern> | head -1" but with one fewer process and a lot less work for grep to do.

I have no idea what that is all supposed to do, but I bet it could be done with at most 2 calls to xinput with a single awk command between them.

EDIT: scratch that, two calls to xinput will do it

xinput --set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "libinput Natural Scrolling Enabled" 0
xinput --set-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "libinput Tapping Enabled" 1

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

On the topic of xinput --set-prop, it would be really nice to have a script or bash alias that *always* grabs the correct ID for my touchpad:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                          id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech G500                             id=9    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech G500                             id=10   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad                id=13   [slave  pointer  (2)]
...

Currently ID 13, but that can change if I reboot without my mouse being plugged in, for example. I've once managed to accidentally disable the keyboard as a result of that id changing... But it happens so rarely (my mouse is 95% of the time plugged in at boot) that im not really in the mood to bother exploring the possibility of changing my alias at this time.

EDIT: The alias, in case anyone's curious:

alias touchpadoff='xinput set-prop 13 "Device Enabled" 0'
alias touchpadon='xinput set-prop 13 "Device Enabled" 1'

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

JBS, did you read my post at all.  I don't know why people jump through hoops to figure out a dynamic ID number assigned to devices when they have names.

man xinput wrote:

device can be the device name as a string or the XID of the device.

Just use the name.

How I managed to miss that the first time is completely beyond me... Thanks though! This helps a lot. smile

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

This is pmenu based wrapper around pass (password manager). This script can be adapted for use with dmenu or rofi, however for terminal use I have opted for pmenu.

#!/usr/bin/env bash
## Run this script from terminal or bind it to a key as something like "sakura -eh passmenu"
## assumes working pass installation with password store in ~/.password-store (default)
## the script depends on pmenu

shopt -s nullglob globstar lastpipe

prefix=${PASSWORD_STORE_DIR-~/.password-store}
password_files=( "$prefix"/**/*.gpg )
password_files=( "${password_files[@]#"$prefix"/}" )
password_files=( "${password_files[@]%.gpg}" )

echo -e "password view\ngoogle otp\npassword edit\nnew password\nremove password" | pmenu -p SELECT: | read ops

case $ops in
    password\ view)  pass show $(printf '%s\n' "${password_files[@]}" | pmenu -p PASSWORD_VIEW:) ;;
    password\ edit) pass edit $(printf '%s\n' "${password_files[@]}" | pmenu -p PASSWORD_EDIT:) ;; 
    new\ password) pass edit $(cat /dev/null | pmenu -p NEW_PASSWORD:) ;;
    remove\ password) pass rm $(printf '%s\n' "${password_files[@]}" | pmenu -p REMOVE_PASSWORD:) ;;
esac

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

I got tired of looking up how to do this (pactl wrapper).
Redirect an application's audio to specified output.
/usr/local/sbin/pulse.out

#!/bin/bash

app=$1
out=$2

appstream=$(echo $(pactl list sink-inputs | grep -e "Sink\ Input" -e "application.process.binary") | grep -o "Sink\ Input\ #[0-9]*\ application\.process\.binary\ =\ \"$app\"" | sed -e 's/^.*#//' -e 's/\ .*//')

case "$out" in
  default|speakers|system|pa|surround|5.1)
    output="alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.iec958-ac3-surround-51.equalizer"
  ;;
  bluetooth|portable)
    output="bluez_sink.FC_58_FA_B7_22_0C.a2dp_sink"
  ;;
esac

[[ $output ]] && for i in $appstream; do \
  pactl move-sink-input $i $output; done
pulse.out firefox bluetooth
pulse.out mpv surround

Firefox is an example of an application with multiple sink-inputs (any tab with audio++, even muted?) all under one PID--except for flash content, which may be running as a plugin, eg application.process.binary = "plugin-container".

Get your own sink names!

pactl list sinks | grep -C 2 Name

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

With xbacklight failing with modesetting driver, I have to find a workaround. Here is my backlight script, with added advantage, it works with console.

#!/bin/bash

#max=4882

increase() {

    if [[ $(cat /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness) -le 4600 ]]; then
	sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness <<<  $(echo $(($(cat /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness) + 200)))
    else
	[ -n "$DISPLAY" ] && notify-send -u critical "Backlight at maximum" || echo "Backlight at maximum"
    fi
}

decrease() {

    if [[ $(cat /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness) -ge 1600 ]]; then
	sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness <<< $(echo $(($(cat /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness) -  200)))
    else
	[ -n "$DISPLAY" ] && notify-send -u critical "Backlight at minimum" || echo "Backlight at minimum"
    fi
}

case $1 in
    check) cat /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness ;;
    up) increase ;;
    down) decrease ;;
    *)
	echo "USAGE: $0 check/up/down"
	;;
esac

I have this script bound to my brightness keys as

 backlight up && notify-send "$(backlight check)"

and similarly backlight down.

Re: Post your handy self made command line utilities

It's odd to use the test binary [ in some places and bash's built in [[ others.  Also, there's no need to have a case statement just to call functions of names similar (but oddly not the same) as the parameter names.  Just call your functions 'up' and 'down' and make one for 'check', then after the function definitions:

${1:-check} 2>/dev/null || echo "USAGE: $0 [ check | up | down ]"

You might also just want to retrieve the current value once rather than abusing cats.

Also, why do you call the script twice in your key binding?  It outputs the value after a change, so just send the output to notify send.  Further, you have notify send in the script already, so put that in one place or the other, not both.  Consider this:

#!/bin/bash

base=/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight
cur=$(<$base/brightness)
max=$(<$base/max_brightness)
min=1600
step=200

case $1 in
	up|increase|+) cur=$(($cur + $step)) ;;
	down|decrease|-) cur=$(($cur - $step)) ;;
	check) ;;
	*) echo "USAGE: $0 [ up | down | check ]"; exit 1 ;;
esac

[[ $cur -gt $max ]] && echo "Backlight at Maximum" && exit 1
[[ $cur -lt $min ]] && echo "Backlight at Minimum" && exit 1

echo $cur | sudo tee $base/brightness

Then your binding would be "notify-send $(backlight up)" for example.

(No cats were harmed in the production of this script).

Wonderful
I would have never thought of using case to define variables.
