fslint-gui(1) A GUI wrapper for the individual fslint command line tools


fslint-gui [OPTIONS] [PATHS]


fslint is a toolset to find various problems with filesystems, including duplicate files and problematic filenames etc.

Individual command line tools are available in addition to the GUI and to access them, one can change to, or add to $PATH the /usr/share/fslint/fslint directory on a standard install. Each of these commands in that directory have a --help option which further details its parameters.

findup - find DUPlicate files

findnl - find Name Lint (problems with filenames)

findu8 - find filenames with invalid utf8 encoding

findbl - find Bad Links (various problems with symlinks)
