Move your screenshots to pictures folder

I wanted to be able to view my screenshots with the Kindle image viewer, so I made this shell script:
Code:
echo 'Moving Screenshots'
mv /mnt/us/documents/*.gif /mnt/us/pictures/screenshots
echo 'Screenshots Moved'
To use it, make a folder in the /mnt/us directory called pictures. Put a folder called screenshots inside of it. Then, run the script from the shell.

This moves all .gif files from the Documents folder to the Screenshots folder. Non-screenshot .gif files will also be moved. I think that replacing "*.gif" in my code with "screen_shots*.gif" would only move screenshots, but I really don't know much about using * as a wildcard.

To make it easier, you can use Kite and make a "book" that runs this script when you open it. However, I have not tested this because the Kite hack appears to dislike my Kindle.

If you happen to know more about wildcards on Linux, please tell me if what I think is right. I'll make an edit for any corrections.

Edit: Forgot to add this... This is for a Kindle 3. I do not know where the other Kindles store their images. If you know where the screenshots are stored, replace the first directory in my code with that directory with "/*.gif" after it.

Well, the Kindle Touch and I think the rest of the newer models store them in
Code:
/mnt/us/screenshot_{YYYY}_{MM}_{DD}T{HH}_{MM}_{SS}.png
I use mv /mnt/us/screenshot*.png /mnt/us/images/ to move them to the new location for the now well-hidden image viewer (requires Collections Manager to unhide, is Collection at the very end of library list).

Yeah, the wildcard works fine.
