Bizarre - perplexing - camelface file icon

Ubuntu 18.10 (gnome 3.x)

OK, slow day at work and I was looking through my collection of shell scripts in Nautilus (I mostly use the shell and CLI) : and I see this one file that has a different icon and for the life of my I have NO IDEA why!

Camel face, not camel toe :smiley:

The two files to either side of it - are also *.bash shell scripts - but have different icons… All have attributes “-rwxr-xr-x” (i.e. 0755) and all start with the “hash bang” :
#!/usr/bin/env bash

All three scripts respond the same way to the “file” command :

╰─➤  file mon-xfer.bash 
mon-xfer.bash: Bourne-Again shell script, ASCII text executable

╰─➤  file movavid.bash 
movavid.bash: Bourne-Again shell script, ASCII text executable

Why? Why? It’s not a biggy - but it’s perplexing!!!

Also - I probably won’t pastebin the contents of any of these scripts - 'cause I do a lot of swearing and pottymouth words in my shell scripts - like the “F” bomb, and even the “C” bomb :smiley:

FYI : that mcfuck2mp3.bash script converts crappy apple m4a music files to “proper” mp3 files :smiley: (and removes the m4a file) - this is only when I’m forced to buy music from the iSore [sic: deliberate] that’s not available anywhere else…

April fool’s joke?

That’s a reason for pasting it.

I have never seen music only available on the Apple Store. If the artist I listen to would put their music only on there, I simply wouldn’t buy it, because I would’ve lost my interest in them.

It was an Australian band called Tropical Fuck Storm (fronted by The Drones’ frontman Gareth Liddiard and bassist Fiona Kitschen [his missus]) - and their EP/Album only came out on iTunes - and I couldn’t wait for it to come out on Google Play Music - and wasn’t available to buy in a brick and mortar music outlet at the time :smiley:

Also - I do have an iPad (I’ve got two actually) - and I had an iTunes card one of my kids got me few months earlier for Xmas…

Here’s one song off that album (Album : A Laughing Death in Meatspace) - “The Future of History” - and it actually mentions a UNIX “version” - AIX (RS/6000 VLSI running AIX) :

just a quick couple of reverse image searches on mobile yielded only one similar camel out of a russian media group called alisa:

Ofcourse camel toe is a bit best :heart_eyes:
but speaking serious, seems virus attack, despite
Linux have fews virus.It could to be a logomark of
some software, search in google using this image
to see the return.

when I searched for the image, I got some sites in Spanish with sample svg’s…

I might have a hunt through my icon folders…

Looking at that file on Ubuntu 18.04 (at home) in Nautilus - it’s no different (icon-wise) than its adjacent peers…

Went through “mime-types” icon folders and found this :

No idea why Cosmic Cuttlefish thinks it’s a perl script - it’s not - it’s bash… *.bash extension, and bash set in the hash bang! :

#!/usr/bin/env bash

╰─➤ mimetype mon-xfer.bash
mon-xfer.bash: application/x-perl

Oh well : I understand now why it’s a “camel” :

but still no idea why Cosmic Cuttlefish thinks its a perl script (I NEVER write scripts from scratch in perl - I can modify / change kinda understand a perl shell script - but would never choose it to start something from scratch)

Does it run with that line? There might be some issues with that when running scripts with that line on Debian based systems. E.G. I couldn’t execute a certain script at all with that first liner.

I always use that line these days… for maybe 5 years??? Don’t remember when I switched from simple :



#!/usr/bin/env bash

I think I got some shell scripts from an Amazon AWS Solutions Architect that were like that - and I just started using that format…


Never found a Debian instance (from Wheezy to Stretch) that didn’t have a /usr/bin/env binary…

Never found a RHEL/CentOS/OEL/Fedora instance like that either… and certainly not a Ubuntu instance - and - the same on FreeBSD :smiley: - it’s “there”…

This is one of the many explanations on what could go wrong with using arguments (i.e. whitespace) on the shebang.

Interesting read… now I remember why I started doing this - not all operating systems have “bash” (or ksh/csh/sh) in /usr/bin - some (Solaris? I’ll have to fire up my Sunblade 2500 again! Older FreeBSD?) house them in /bin/ - however - on all the systems I looked at /usr/bin/env was “true” - so I started doing this…

Just confirmed - on FreeBSD (my FreeNAS “NAS”) :

x@baphomet  ~  which bash
x@baphomet  ~  which env

So there ya go :smiley:

And - to confuse things even further? TrueOS based GhostBSD :

╭─x@puca ~  
╰─➤  which bash
╭─x@puca ~  
╰─➤  which env
╭─x@puca ~  
╰─➤  which tcsh
╭─x@puca ~  
╰─➤  which zsh
╭─x@puca ~  
╰─➤  which csh
╭─x@puca ~  
╰─➤  which sh

Note “tcsh” is usually the default shell on FreeBSD
