How can I automate the following: When I insert a flash drive into any of the available USB ports, some kind of script or software, must automatically mount it, delete everything off the flash drive, copy an audio file back to it and then automatically unmount the USB.Maybe I should setup some kind of Kiosk to use the above functionality - would that be easy?

Ubuntu :: Copy ISO CD Image File To USB Flash Drive Using Dd?

Jul 13, 2011

I am pretty much a noob when it comes to Linux. But I desperately need to do exactly what the title of this thread says.I have this ISO file which is a bootable CD image. But instead of booting off of a CD, I want to boot from a USB flash drive. I understand that I can't simply just burn it with ImgBurn or whatever, and then just drag and drop the files and folder to a USB flash drive. Because hidden files, bootloader, etc. would not be visible and not copied. I know I'm in for some special software in order to copy every single byte from that ISO image to my USB flash drive.

I did try extracting the ISO with PeaZip (7-zip based) under Windows Vista, but that didn't work out very well. It resulted in a few files and folders, totaling in at about 2 KB, while the source ISO file is actually some 50 MB. WinRAR, on the other hand, would simply just create an empty folder where to put the files (no files created/extracted), flash before my eyes and call it a day ("complete").I have learned from other posters on other forums that there is this Unilx program/command called DD. How can I use DD to accomplish this task?

Debian :: 8.1 - Script That Automatically Install Flash Player

My dad don't like that windows is no longer on the laptop, but I can't install linux on it cause they want windows back... in the meantime we're using Debian 8.1 with KDE but is live and doesn't have flash player which my dad uses to listen dossiers from Walter Martinez and hates that he can't do that now without me doing the installing every single time and sometimes I'm not there so he can't watch his favorite shows. Is there a way he can just double click something so is automatically installed?

Debian Configuration :: Can't Copy A File From SMB Share To The Local File System

Aug 17, 2015

There is this bug in the latest version of Ubuntu, which is also Jessie, which is:

Can't copy a file from SMB share to the local file system: Software caused connection abort

The problem, apparently, is that newer versions of Samba hit servers with multiple requests at the same time, and for some reason the Zyxel and Iomega boxes can't handle this. The best solution they've come up with is to modify the smb.conf file on your server to include this setting: "max mux = 1".

Here is the reference material on this bug: [URL] ....

People who develop samba have fixed it in the latest version but neither the ubuntu nor Debian have released the fixed version of nautilus, as of yet. Here, is the reference: [URL] ....

Debian :: Delete A File On Every Startup?

May 20, 2010

I would like to delete some files stored in the personal directory, say .adobe, .macromedia, .xsession-errors, on every start-up or shutting down. I can do it with cron but I would like to learn different (simpler) options. The thing is, I haven't been able to input the proper terms in a search engine. Note that these files must exist in their default location during the session. This is, I don't want to make them links to /dev/null or move them to /tmp.

General :: USB Flash Boot Copy To Another USB Flash

Sep 3, 2010

I have a USB flash drive, which is bootable and I would like to copy the whole drive to a different drive.Can I just do a low level dd copy between both USB memory drives, or do I need to make an ISO of the source, and then put that ISO on the destination? I figured I could ask in less time than trying, and exhaustively testing to make sure I had it right...

Debian :: Copy Pasting A File Via Ssh Possible?

Mar 28, 2011

Is it possible to use the cp command to copy a file from computer A to computer B?

Also, assuming that it is possible, does Linux SSH add extra (=its own) encryption via the file transfer or is it solely reliant upon my WIFI's encryption?

Debian :: Mounting An FTP Address To My File System Automatically During Boot?

Apr 7, 2010

I'm having difficulties mounting an FTP address to my file system automatically during boot. After a bit of research I have discovered a package called curlftpfs, I've installed this package using aptitude and I had no errors.

I've successfully mounted an FTP address manually using curlftpfs at the command line and proved to myself that this is working as it should...However, I can't get this to mount automatically and I am receiving the following error during boot when I try and mount it through /etc/fstab...

Error connecting to ftp: Failed to connect to (IP address of server): Network is unreachable

My research indicates this package should be able to do this.

I'm still a learner when it comes to Linux, but could this be because TCP/IP services are not started at the time of mounting the filesystems? I've tried a continuous ping at this computer whilst it is booting and I don't get a response until after /etc/fstab has been processed. If this is the reason, can I start them these processes earlier?

Another option would be to have a script/command run when the computer boots, but prior to MySQL loading. If this is possible, it would also satisfy my problems.

Debian Programming :: Replace Certain Text In A File With Person Username Automatically?

Mar 16, 2014

Is there any way to use sed to replace certain text in a file with the persons username automatically? Right now i'm using
Code: Select allsed -i.bak s/STRING_TO_REPLACE/STRING_TO_REPLACE_IT/g

I would like it to automatically inject the persons usrname in the replacement string. Is this possible? I've been looking on line at various sed tutorials and I cant quite find what i'm looking for. I also didn't really see anything in the forums search function.Essentially i'm trying to take this file URL...Android.rules and replace all instances of username with the persons actual username automatically.

Code: Select allsed -i.bak s/username/$USER/g 51_Android.rules

Is there a way to automatically remove the old linux image when a new one is updated?

When my system boots up it shows option
Ubuntu kernel version x.x.x-21
Ubuntu kernel version x.x.x-22
Ubuntu kernel version x.x.x-23

General :: Copy A Read-Only File And Make The Copy Writable With A Single Cp Command?

Mar 1, 2011

How to copy a Read-Only file in Linux and make the copy writable with a single cp command in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? The --no-preserve and --preserve seemed to be good candidates, except that they should "and" the mode flags, while what I am looking for is something that will "or" them (add +w mode).

More details: I have to import a repository from GIT to Perforce. I want that all Perforce depot files are Read-Only (that is how Perforce was designed), while all other files that were derived/copied from depot files are writable. Currently if a Makefile tries to copy a Read-Only file then the derived file will also be Read-only. This leads to build-errors when cp tries to overwrite Read-Only file second time. Of course the --force is a workaround here but then the derived file is also Read-Only. Also I do not want to mess with "chmod" after each "cp" command - I will do that only as the last resort.

Ubuntu :: Create A Folder Where You Can Copy Files To But You Can't Delete Them After?

Nov 24, 2010

i'm confronting atm. I need to create a folder where ppl can copy files and i need to be sure that those files cannot be deleted after they are copied there. The folder will be accessed over network, and i need to be sure no one will delete somebody else's files.Also i need to tell you that i'm working with regular users, so creating a folder for each user and chown/chmod-ing it won't do the trick(allready tried and ended up with a whole lot of files in the parent directory).I also tried chattr +a but that doesn't allow them to write new files in the folder.

General :: Make A Bash Script That Automatically Delete The Home Folders?

Feb 15, 2011

I am administrating a lab in a university and every semester we need to delete all the home folders of the accounts for the next semester. I would like to make a bash script that does this automatically and having trouble with it. Note that I am writing my very first bash script. What I need to do is make a script to delete the following:

Delete everything in /home/$exp$num/$dir
when "exp" could be either "rt", "ic" or "sp".
"num" could run from 1(single digit) to 45 and dir is "profile" and "work".

This is what I tried to write:


cd /home
for exp in "rt ic sp"


What seems to be the problem is the reading of "$exp$num" as a joint expression.

Programming :: Shell Script To Automatically Delete Files With The Same Name As The Parent Directory?

Mar 18, 2010

I am facing a problem in Windows due to a virus called Newfolder.exe which creats files with the same name as it's parent directory and an extension .exe and this happens for every directory in the entire hierarchy in the infected pen drive. The antivirus detects them, but is sucking slow. So I thought this is a good opportunity to use the concepts of the all mighty shell script to remove those as they follow the same pattern. Say my complete path is



The virus would have created an file with complete paths



If fol1 has two more directories fol11 and fol12 Then there would be two more .exe(virus created) in the following path
