Batch rename files in Linux with GPRename

This is a great utility if you have many jpeg’s or MP3’s that are haphazardly named and want to rename them sequentially, or with a specific pattern.

It has a very friendly GUI front end and allows for many types of character substitutions or prefixes and suffixes to be added. It also supports character substitutions for matching patterns.

Simply sudo apt-get install gprename.
