ubuntu how to copy all file types to a single folder

So I wanted to figure out an easy way to search my computer and my servers for a specific file type, in my case .eps figure files and copy them all to a single folder for me to review.

So first I need to make a folder to copy them do so I did this:

First I made the directory
mkdir figall

Move to the root folder
cd /

Now copy all files with extension .eps to my folder
sudo find -name "*.eps" -exec cp \{\} ~/Desktop/figall/ \;

Now I could repeat this for any file extension:
sudo find -name "*.jpg" -exec cp \{\} ~/Desktop/jpgall/ \;
sudo find -name "*.doc" -exec cp \{\} ~/Desktop/docall/ \;
sudo find -name "*.tex" -exec cp \{\} ~/Desktop/texall/ \;

make ubuntu gnome look like windows XP

This was great, I downloaded it and within minutes my entire desktop looked just like windows. Don't get me wrong, I hate windows and I can't wait for it to go out of business but this is funny and now people that use my computer will be clueless that it is not windows.


Here is the direct link:


tar -xvf XpGnome.tar.gz
cd XpGnome
sudo ./InstallXpGnome.sh
