Hello, I'm trying to filter basic OSM data with Osmosis. I can't seem to get osmosis running though. I've now cut down the command-code to:

osmosis \ --read-pbf file=~/desktop/BA/Modell/SciGRID/data/01_osm_raw_data/germany-24.10.21.osm.pbf --write-null

and I still get the same Error:

SEVERE: Execution aborted. org.openstreetmap.osmosis.core.OsmosisRuntimeException: The following named pipes () and 1 default pipes have not been terminated with appropriate output sinks.

I really don't know what I'm doing wrong.

This error message appears when I run your command without the "--write-null". Make sure that everything is actually on one line. Drop the backslash behind osmosis, and write both the --read-pbf and the --write-null into the same line as "osmosis". Make sure that whatever shell script is called when you run "osmosis" doesn't accidentally remove some of the arguments.

Thanks for your help. That actually works, I thought everything will be read in one line as long as I don't use any backslash. How do you run multiple commands though? I've just have a space block between every command but that doesn't seem like the best option.

You can use backslashes to improve readability, but then you have to make sure to put one at the end of each line. I just advised you to get rid of that above in order to minimize the potential for errors ;)
