Rename Them All

Rename Them All is a batch renamer, in lay man's terms that means it allows you to rename the file names of multiple files at once. The app was part of The Grand App Writing Challenge.

Although I dont usually try beta/untested softwares, I couldnt resist giving this app a try. After all, it does promise to make life really really easy. Imagine having the pleasure of renaming hundreds of files at one go with the click of a button!

Given below is a screenshot of the app where I am renaming files named 1, 2, 3, 4... to Pic1, Pic2, Pic3, Pic4...

How to Install for Ubuntu 9.10 (Recommended)

Go to the Terminal (Accessories > Terminal) and type the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:loneowais/ppa

Next update your repositories by typing the following in the Terminal:
sudo apt-get update

Now install the software by typing the following in the Terminal:
sudo apt-get install renamethemall

Installing the app by this method allows you to constantly stay updated to the latest version of the app.

Alternate method of installation: (Not Recommended)

You can download the .deb file from the launchpad page here. Direct link to the .deb file is here.

Thereafter just double click on the file and install the software. Do note that although this method of installation is easier, it wont allow you to stay up to date with latest versions of the software which might include bug fixes, added features etc.
