comment Recover just deleted scanned pdf without unmounting
Actually, pdfinfo found about 50 files, so I had to open it manually. But the one file I was looking for wasn't between them. I'm not sure if I can trust this tool (scalpel). Maybe this answer is worth accepting, but I would like to recover the file in the end.

I know the creation date of the original file yet, if it helps.

@user454038 It is scanned without OCR. I don't know if scalpel do some ordering.

btw. your command does not narrow the results to scanned documents.

comment Recover just deleted scanned pdf without unmounting
This finds hundreds of scanned files. My pdf file is output of simple-scan application, so I guess according to the size of similar scanned documents, that the resulting file should be (6 pages) 354K +/- in size. If it would be possible to add some switch to the grep command that will narrow the results yet.

comment Storing shell scripts
OK, and can you execute the scripts without writing interpreter name, as if they were normal apps?

You work with abstract ttsUtil.exe and this is what I need to find. What works is a gui application TTSApp.exe

For nirsoft: I can't find the command for specifying the voices I need. For jambal: I've stuck with JRE installation. If I would overcome this problem, ptts could be the way.

comment Text-to-speech in a script
When you install espeak in wine, you can run TTSApp.exe (the one I already use) and it offers me the voices I need. I can run command-line espeak.exe where you can list voices with --voices, but the voices I need aren't offered and I can't find out the command switch for them. I can specify for example wine espeak.exe -ven-us for us english but can't find the right switch for the other voices TTSApp.exe offers me.

Thank you. I knew about pico2wave. But I need to use voices that are Windows files. I can do it as above (with manual clicking)

comment Failed to restore file with extundelete
@richard Good idea. I have to edit my .vimrc for my most used settings to work. I hope I haven't deleted something else important.

@psimon I haven't back up it for 2 years. I forgot for this and how many configurations I have made in it :-(

Finally I entered the system as a root but hit another problem. I will ask another question to keep it simple.

OK, I run it with sudo, but the problem with mounting still remains.

@terdon Yes, I checked it. There is no .vimrc~ or .vimrc.swp

Yes it strange, but this is not a main problem. Naturally, I have there a password, but I'm not going to share it here.

In works from terminal without problems. PATH is OK. Only the question to be complete I'd like to work it from dmenu.
