comment How to find which files and folders were deleted recently in Linux?
ravi, @SampoSarrala - is this applicable if I want to watch files in the / root, taking into account mounting/unmounting drives? I would guess, in that case the only thing viable for keeping a deletion log would be a kernel module that would hook into unlink (see stackoverflow.com/questions/8588386/…); also man inotifywait states: "--recursive: Warning: ... this option while watching ... a large tree, it may take quite a while. Also, ..., the maximum amount of inotify watches per user will be reached. The default maximum is 8192;"

comment How can I make ffmpeg be quieter/less verbose?
Just a note: on my ancient ffmpeg I get "ffmpeg: unrecognized option" for -nostats and -hide_banner; however -v 0 disables progress output (while -loglevel quiet doesn't); I also tried -vstats_file /dev/null, but that doesn't influence the stderr output.

comment How to convert a multi-page PDF file to PNG files, with one PNG file per page of the PDF document?
Just a note: ImageMagick's convert does use Ghostscript when rendering .pdfs, see stackoverflow.com/questions/14705727/…

comment ffmpeg - Create a video from image frame with a start and a cout
I appreciate this command, because it works with old ffmpeg which I have to use right now; the only thing is -t is not "end time", man ffmpeg states it is "duration"; so end time would be start+duration. Cheers!

comment Continuously re-execute a command when it finishes in Bash
Thanks for this, I was looking for it, especially since yourcommand; !! does not actually work with commands on the same line, however, !# seems to do. Cheers!

Just tried it, the site will seemingly do a conversion of NOKIARAW files, but the output is meaningless noise, unfortunately..

comment Open Office Calc time to decimal
... having selected the result cell, click on the formula entry again; and now add the *24 to, say, (D7-C7) - and now you should (hopefully) get the result with decimals; after this, you could re-format the number with the proper amount of decimals, I guess. Hope this helps - cheers! (EDIT: may have forgotten to say, that at first, I didn't enter the whole formula (with *24), just the difference (D7-C7)).

comment Open Office Calc time to decimal
You could have also edited the original question post, and added what you typed here there, and then written a comment to the answerer.. Anyway - what I did was to format the time cells as [HH]:MM in Format cells/Format code (as per Documentation/How Tos/Calc: Date & Time functions - Apache OpenOffice Wiki); then after you enter the formula (and get the 2), right-click and "Clear Direct Formatting" - this should give you a floating point number (0.1041666667); now ...

comment Pipe VLC output to ffplay?
Thanks for that @DarthAndroid - of course I have, among the first things :) Doesn't work - the linked Slitaz post confirms that loading 'nvidia' driver for X11 was what solved the issue; but on my system, radeon.ko.gz is loaded, and X11 doesn't accept it in its setup; which is why I'm looking at this workaround (which actually works - for those pipes that don't segfault with avi as in OP edit)... Basically, I just want to use vlc as audio player and video demuxer/decoder - and ffplay as basically just a "projection screen" :) Cheers!
