Is there a console solution to the following problem? The folder contains a lot of files like:
xaaaacqjz xaaaacqka xaaaacqkb xaaaacqkc xaaaacqkd xaaaacqke xaaaacqkf xaaaacqkg
There are so many of them that thunar simply stops responding, in general, I cannot solve the problem in the huyne.
Can I somehow remove them with the rm command? It would be possible to cut out the folder completely, but there I have too much usable material. Help me please!
in general, of course, you can delete files with the rm program:
$ rm список файлов
in particular, for example, files in the
$ rm /путь/к/каталогу/xaaaa*
but if there are so many files that their full list does not fit into the limitation on the length of the argument list (
$ getconf ARG_MAX will show this limitation – in bytes), then (even in the process of forming the list of arguments) you will receive an error:
bash: / bin / rm: Argument list too long
in this case, you can use the find program:
$ find /путь/к/каталогу -maxdepth 1 -type f -name xaaaa\* -delete
