I'm using ubuntu 12.10 and have a folder that contains a hundred or so .jpg files of varying names and lengths. I'd like to rename them all to a standard (and keep the .jpg). I've tried researching rename and other bash options but they generally assume that the files already have some kind of standard naming convention to work off. I don't. So my question is this: how do I use bash to blanket rename everything in that directory to my new naming convention?
