Not related to astronomy, but simple and usefull stuff.


My photo manager, ShotWell, stored all my photos in a /year/month/day/ tree. I wanted

all my photos to be stored by month only (/year/month/).


I have more than 8.000 photos (30 GB), so, I wrote a small script moving

all the files in the parent directory, in the recursive manner, removing all the

empty folders once the job done.


My script :




# get all the full files names

find . -type f | while read -r file do

    # for each file

    # remove the file base name

    folder=$(dirname "${file}")

    # remove the folder name

    subfolder=$(dirname "${folder}")

    # move the file to the sub folder

    mv "${file}" "${subfolder}"


# remove all the empty folders

find . -type d -empty -exec rmdir {} \;


It could help somebody...


Best regards !

I worked a lot on qastrocam-g2 5.0, more 4000 code lignes changed...


Changes planned :


- Uses cmake for building, instead of the old automake/autoconf system.

- Better dependencies management, less libraries required.

- The old libavifile library as been replaced by libav/ffmpeg.

- The migration form Qt3 to Qt4 is almost done.

- qastrocam-g2 becomes a "pure"  Qt4 app. No Qt3Support needed.

- Packages also available for rpm distributions (packages build on Mageia 2)


qastrocam-g2 on Qt4 snapshot :
