convert filenames case
Is there somebody who knows how to convert easily all filenames of a directory into
lower case ? There is certainly an utility or bash script to do that, but I didn't find any
so far, and I don't have time for now to write one... I'll have to learn bash commands
before :-). Actually I saw the "Ark" archive program could do that, but I didn't succeed
to make the functionality work.
Thank you in advance for your help !

If you want a GUI (and have KDE2) try Krename . If you want a command line tool, then rename .

for i in *; do mv "$i" "`echo $i | tr A-Z a-z`"; done

GUI? pahh not likely!

Of course no ! But I'm surprised by the power of
a simple command line !;)
