76  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AutoHotkey script to replace spaces in file names with underscores on: May 23, 2014, 06:20:30 AM
Thanks for all your help. I have UAC switched off. I've never seen that tray balloon pop up, but then I only managed to execute the script twice so far, and after both instances things got messed up.

I'm starting to think that the problem may have to do with some conflict with my Apple keyboard remapping. For example, I get different behaviour with clipboard related shortcuts depending on the types of shortcut keys I use. Also, when I tried to set up a hotkey for the ArsClip macro and hit Command, which is mapped as Win, it showed up as Win+CTRL. So I suspect a lot more is happening when I press certain keys than I'm able to see.

since the script worked on tomos' PC, we can isolate the Apple keyboard and see how AHK recognises the key presses. right-click on a running script and select 'Open'. from the window that appears, go to View|Hotkey and their methods. now you can see how your hotkeys are registered. it should look like this then post it here.




Anyway, here is my keyboard remapping script, in case anyone might be able to spot the culprit in there:

i don't think there is anything wrong here.

I had a quick go, got an error message showing file paths with underscores added - but there is no change to focused files.
No change if I also run the Count_words script.
I see that these paths are also copied to the clipboard.
 (see attachment in previous post)
Win7 x64 / UAC on highest setting / AHK_L
@tomos: thanks for testing out. Kiss don't worry, the changed text is only stored in clipboard. in any case, you can press Ctrl+v to paste the new contents.

@dr_andus: i cannot replicate the problem you face. i too run several AHK scripts (5 raw, 4 compiled) with a couple of clipboard extenders but the script i posted had no problems.

what happens if you copy-paste my script in to the Alt+W one? do you get a tray balloon like in the image below?



at this point, i suspect it has something to do with Win7's UAC which suppresses the script silently, instead of elevating the process.

i wonder if someone could try the script and post some feedback. @rjbull, do you fancy? smiley
79  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: AutoHotkey script to replace spaces in file names with underscores on: May 21, 2014, 09:21:59 PM
lanux128, many thanks for the script! I'm having a bit of trouble with it though. As I'm using an Apple keyboard, there isn't a Win key. So I changed WIN+D to ALT+V. After that I was able to have one successful instance, but after that it wouldn't do it, even when I reload the script.

This makes me wonder if some bits of this script interfere with some other bits in my file. I don't know anything about AutoHotkey, but for example I already have this elsewhere in the file:

are you running the script by itself or you copy-pasted in to your main script? i have added more error-trapping in case copying to clipboard somehow fails so please check out the new script from the above link.

btw, what OS are you running this on? it works fine here on Win 7 Pro (x64).

NB: currently there are a few AHK forks. fyi i am using this one, previously known as AHK_L.

Edit: I didn't try run it though.

thanks NigelH for pointing to the web archive! thumbs up i tried downloading but only two apps were available - RRunner and Drive Namer.

i ran both files by virusscan and they came clean.

@dr_andus: i have a script that does that, see if you can use it.

Formatted for Autohotkey with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1.  
  2. SetWorkingDir, %A_ScriptDir%
  3.  
  4. ; Select the text and press Alt+v to convert space -> underscore
  5. ;#d::
  6. !v::
  7. Send, ^c
  8. {
  9.    TrayTip,, The attempt to copy text onto the clipboard failed.
  10.    Return
  11. }
  12. StringReplace, Clipboard, Clipboard, %A_SPACE%, _, UseErrorLevel  
  13. {
  14.  TrayTip,%ErrorLevel%,%Clipboard%,,1
  15. }
  16. Else                                  
  17.  TrayTip,,%ErrorLevel%,,1            

usage:
1. run the script
2. select some text
3. press Alt+v

I specifically asked about the new v2.0 beta. Valtam said they all should be fine at 1024x600. I can't personally vouch for it because I don't own a netbook to test it on. Their IRC is on Freenode - #Linuxlite.  Why not drop by with your specifics and chat with them? Or visit their support forum here.

Again, it's a "live" CD -so you can run it without installing it first. That's always a good idea no matter which distro you're interested in.
thanks for the reply! since they're on Freenode, i will drop by and have a chat there. smiley

the thing with netbooks is i can't use the "live cd". instead i have to go the "live usb drive" route which is a hit and miss with some of the thumb drives going undetected at boot-up but that's a story for another topic.

my netbook, MSI Wind U100 only appears in the archived H/W Database for version 1.0.6. does that mean the newer 1.0.8 won't run on my netbook? just want to clarify before taking the leap.

@phitsc: i plugged an old pair speakers into the Odroid and streamed music from Subsonic server. the quality of the audio, while not outstanding, was certainly listenable.

lanux128, can you comment on the quality of the analog audio out of the ODROID-U3? I'm running Raspbmc on a Raspberry Pi as an audio player and the Raspberry's headphone output definitely has room for improvement.

@phitsc: currently i am using it more as a video player (audio via HDMI) but wrt to analog audio-out i will try to find a pair of speakers and do a test for you. smiley

oh baby, this is sexy.
Very nice in any case!

thanks guys! i have finished setting up but there is a bug in the current image where xbmc can't see any SMB shares unless it is run as root. i plugged in a wireless keyboard and manually keyed-in the sudo cmd but i prefer not doing it at each boot-up. the plastic case handles heat quite well but haven't started streaming any movies yet. i am also trying to add an external hdd and see if i can install steam and play some controller-centric games.


Yes and no, says Wikipedia smiley

The S III comes in two distinct variations that differ primarily in the internal hardware. The international S III version has Samsung's Exynos 4 Quad system on a chip (SoC) containing a 1.4 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 central processing unit (CPU) and an ARM Mali-400 MP graphics processing unit (GPU).

thanks for the clarification. i found Odroid as giving the best value among the SoC boards that i came across. if i had chosen for aesthetics values alone, then CuBox would have had my vote plus it already has a GeeXboX build.


NB: if you have an android smartphone, then you can use the XBMC Remote over your wifi. no IR-based remote controller is required.

i received mine within a week but hardly had the time to set things up. i also had to buy a micro HDMI adapter.

the default setup came with kubuntu (xfce) and xbmc frodo 12.2 but i am planning to flash xbmcbuntu soon enough.

here are some pics from the unboxing.

I'm looking for this feature too. I have no need for saved files - I use them directly from the clipboard. I can find no way to turn off the saving of files.

you can turn on this option under "Misc. Tweaks" (see image below for reference).

from my personal experience, TP-Link is a poor choice when it comes to custom FW. i too had bricked one due to same differences as ewemoa encountered.
