Re: [K12OSN] Help with a script



Good use of find.
find /home_student/tutorgroup/${w$}/{x}/.mozilla/ -exec rm -Rf {} \;
Can we simplify this to a one-liner?  I believe you said you wanted the .mozilla directory and all contents deleted?
The above will leave the .mozilla directory in place.

find /home_student -name .mozilla -exec rm -Rf {} \;
I'd like the script to remove the .mozilla directory completely

I've got a issue where I've had to tweak the setting for firefox but of cause some users have been using it and they're not working as they have settings in ~/.mozilla.

I've looked at the script on this page http://k12ltsp.org/mediawiki/index.php/Cache_Removal and tweaked it slightly.

Our users homes all live in a structure like this

/home_student/tutorgroup/xx-xx/username

where xx-xx is a tutorgroup such as 3P-SC

so you have

/home_student/tutorgroup/3P-SC/k999999

I'd like the script to remove the .mozilla directory completely so next time they start up it'll copy it over again for them hopefully fixing the problems.

Can anyone see any problems (I'll be amazed if there arent' any *grin*)

Thanks
Brian

#!/bin/bash
for w in `ls /home_student/tutorgroup`; do
echo "doing $w ....."
         for x in `ls /home_student/tutorgroup/${w}`; do
             echo "Doing $x ..."
             find /home_student/tutorgroup/${w$}/{x}/.mozilla/ -exec rm -Rf {} \;
         done
done
