General :: Conversion - Mobipocket Creator Equivalent - Can't Use Mobipocket Creator
Jan 24, 2010
I'm a Kindle DX owner and I normally download some free PDFs from the internet, but I prefer to read then using the PRC format. As I'm a Linux user, I can't use Mobipocket Creator, then I want to ask for a alternative.
I am new to Ubuntu 9.10.But after reading some tips I was able to install vlc player,handbrake,a free DVD ripper.Now I downloaded a DVD creating tool by nameDEVEDE (devede_3.16.8-0~rastersoft1_all.deb). But it is asking mencoder which I could not install even after installing many uniuversal and multiverse codecs related to mencoder and mplayer.
Therefore I request you to kindly tell me how to install first mpalayer and mencoder also tell me source installing(normally a deb) packages of mencoder and mplayer. Please give me details for offline installation only. Finally tell me how to install DVD creator DEVEDE i.e devede_3.16.8-0~rastersoft1_all.deb.
This was a bizarre problem with my systems bios confusing my usb wireless adapter and hard drive with one another! The solution was to unplug the adapter and reboot. I have been running a dual boot system with xp pro on one hard drive and Ubuntu 9.10 on a second hard drive, both are sata drives. I have been using this system for a few months and have been happy with it. A few days ago I decided to try to put Ubuntu 9.10 on a bootable usb, I followed the directions from help, but when I restarted my computer I could not boot from the usb device or boot from grub2. I read the grub2 documentation and tried all 3 methods of reinstalling grub from the live cd with no success. I then decided to install Lucid beta1 to a small partition on the second hard drive, when I rebooted I had grub 1.98 which recognized all three operating systems. This worked for a couple of days then again I got the error saying that the disk does not exist. I tried reinstalling grub using different methods, I even tried to use the fixmbr command on the xp disk, still no luck, now all I can do is use the live cd.
This utility doesn't work it won't format and won't boot the one time I got it working. Now it has broken my usb flash drive as gparted won't format it to anything . I tried the alternate unetbootin program and now it won't see the flash drive because the startup program trashed it. I still think the external usb devices is the most frustrating part of ubuntu and needs serious fixing. My new netbook install won't see any of my external drives.
ok. here is my problem. when im using these two program, if i change to another window then come back to this program, the program will change to some sort of "view" only mode.i click on the workspace and i can't type or copy my code or edit anything . However, it will still highlight the code i selected. the program will back to normal after i click the applet on the right hand side of the top panel.
Does anyone know of a good web page creator that is easy to install on Sabayon 5.3?? I'm new to Linux and web page creating, so be gentle! I have registered a web address and a host, now all I have to do is get the info to the world.
I was recently trying to use unetbootin for linux but no luck. i want a program that can create a live usb from a cd image i have on my computer, what is it called and where can i find it (it has to work in pclinuxos)
For example I want my Qt Creator app to have multiple custom dialogs. How do I manage them? Also, what if I want to replace all the widgets in a window with new ones, how do I manage that in Qt Designer?
The program damage my external hard disk brand Western Digital of 1 TB and 3 partition of that disk. I'm deeply sad and hopeless... googling a little bit I found that this is and old problem, was my first try. I have a lot, of very important information, I don't even know if is this the right group on this forum to put my question.
I was attempting to create a bootable usb drive for a friend with Startup Disk Creator. I was certain I had selected the correct drive but apparently I had not, because when I clicked "format" it began to format sdb instead of sdc. Unfortunately, sdb was my external hard drive. In a panic i force quit the format window, as i couldn't see any other option.
Now, when i access my external hard drive all I see is 4 files with jibberish titles full of random symbols. When I right click the external drive it still says its ~70% full of data, so i guess everything is still there.. whether or not it is salvageable is the question. Is there anything to be done or is it beyond repair?
I am using default USB Startup disk creator for spreading new versions of ubuntu on all my machines. In 10.04, I point it to GnomeLiveCD of 600Mb, and usual 4Gb flash drive. And the application says I have not enough space.4Gb is empty, fresh formatted, with right partiion. It is OK in short. Do somebody know what to do with app?
I know, as of 2008, no support, but I'm wanting LTS so I'm trying to get Ubuntu 10. I'm trying to use 7.04,s CD/DVD creator to burn the Iso to a CD. I've tried desktop, and alternate, both by bittorrent, and every time I attempt to burn to a disc, it takes 10 minutes with useless spinning, saying "Preparing to write disc" and then it stops, locking the CD drive and having me to restart the system to get it running again. I've run on 2.0x, 1.0x, and 8.0x, all failing. I could really use help. I'm running a Dell Dimension 4500S, Pentium 4, 512MB ram, with a Cyberdrive CW058D CD-R/RW, SCSI, and IS a burner.
I have a DVD that I am trying to burn to a disc. What I have is a VIDEO_TS folder. First I burned just that to the disc and it plays fine in my standard DVD player, but when I try to play it back using Ubuntu's Movie Player, it acts like it is going to play for a split second and then goes into stop mode. So, I tried burning the disc again, but this time I added and empty AUDIO_TS folder to it. Still plays fine on the DVD player, but in Movie Player it plays the menu. Only it doesn't show any image, just a '>' symbol that you can move with the mouse.
I'm trying to use USB Startup Disk Creator. The problem is I can't find it! I mean it is installed on my system, the Software Centre shows that but it doesn't appear in Applications>Accessories or anywhere else I can see. So where the heck is it?
I'm trying to make a live USB of openSUSE from the 'startup disk creator' in Ubuntu. I wanna try it and see what it's like. As well as Fedora and gOS. As soon as the downloads for Fedora and gOS finish I'll try making the startup disk with 'startup disk creator' for each of those. But my problem is that I tried openSUSE and I select the .iso and it doesn't do anything.... I would imagine it should work with any old .iso, right? Or no? Can I only make an ubuntu startup disk with it?EDIT: Fedora doesn't work eitherEDIT again: Yea, requirements state that I can only make a USB startup disk of Ubuntu desktop edition
I have this problem across all my computers running Ubuntu (Lucid and Maverick installations). It works sometimes but it's hit and miss. Sometimes it will load up an iso no problem and i have a start up flash stick in no length of time. Other time's it will not load up an iso. I have tried formatting my flash drive these times but it doesn't make a difference as the drive is always recognised by the program yet i sometimes can't load an iso. When this happens i find that i generally have the same problem at the same time on my other Ubuntu installations. I find it weird. Anyway it's very frustrating when i come across another distro that i really want to try out and i cannot load the iso in the program.
I've tried using usb-creator to create a persistent live USB of Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit, but the program is useless. There's a bug in the program that greys out the options to enable persistence (see here for bug info). I tried workaround #4 listed in that link, but that didn't work either. When I selected another .iso which I moved to the /tmp directory as stated, the "Make Startup Disk" option then became greyed out as well. It'll make a bootable live USB but I need persistence. Is there a good way to do this without using that program And I tried Unetbootin twice, and it wouldn't boot the live system at all. After seeing the Ubuntu splash screen it just stalled at a black screen forever.
I am trying to create a bootable usb flash drive for installing ubuntu 11.04. I have already downloaded the desktop i386.iso file. It contained the usb creator. When i tried to use it to create the bootable usb drive, i am unable to load the .iso file into it.
I am trying to rip some home made sound tracks recorded onto CD using kaudiocreator. I am not infringing any copyright in doing this.It goes through ripping then encoding process but fails with'the selected encoder was not found'I am trying to get the sounds from a cd onto my mp3 player, so using mp3 as the chosen encoder. Do I have to use MP3 or can I use another encoder to do this job? I tried ogg vorbis but it failed with the same error.
I'm installing the qt creator v2 IDE on slackware-current.Installation went smooth but I saw this message:Quote:External DependenciesAdditional development packages requiredApart from a C++ compiler, a number of development libraries need to be presentto enable Qt Creator to build your Qt applications. On Debian and Ubuntu, usethe following command in a terminal to make sure they are installed:sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev libSM-dev libxrender-devlibfontconfig1-dev libxext-devIf you're using QtOpenGL, you'll also need OpenGL development files. You can usethe following command to find out which packages to install: sudo apt-get install libgl-dev libglu-devPress [Enter] to continue :The question is. SHOULD I CARE ? abit more analytically: Does Debian separate development related files and creates those lib***-dev packages or I should get these packages and try to install them in slackware too
I searched but couldn't find this specific error. I'm using a Toshiba with Windows7 and a new 2 gb USB.
Fedora-13-i686-Live.iso selected Verifying filesystem... Verifying SHA256 checksum of LiveCD image... Error: The SHA1 of your Live CD is invalid. You can run this program with the --noverify argument to bypass this verification check.
I have been an Ubuntu user for a few years now, and in the previous versions I have made numerous bootable USB devices, I always thought it was so useful, and I never have had any problems.I just installed version 9.10 the other day, and it seems to be working well, but the USB bootable disk creator is messed up big time.When i try to select an .iso image to add to the source disk image area, it is just unresponsive. And when i try to do something else, like format a USB device, it says i cannot format because the device cannot mounted. But i know its mounted because i can access the contents of the drive.Anyways this was a huge disappointment as I was showing a friend how useful the UBUNTU tools are, and it does this. Does anyone know anything about this bug?
I have 2 USB drives. I have had 9.04 running on one for some time. I used Disk Creator in 9.04 to 'create' the drive. I use it as a reference to verify how things went in 9.04 if I hit a problem with 9.10.
However, after some months, when I tried this USB drive it produced this 'Boot Failure'. I followed up by checking the other USB drive which had Lubuntu installed via USB Disk Creator and it produced the same result ie 'Boot Failure'.
The Machine bios is set in the correct order.
I have tried to 're-do' things via 'Disk Creator' in 9.10 and 9.04 with the same result. It is not likely that both USB drives have failed at the same time.
I am having a problem with the USB Start up creator. I am down loading the Ubuntu Netbook Edition ISO image in the normal way.I then start up the Start Up Disk CreatorI then attempt to select the ISO image to add to the USB stick by clicking 'Other'I then locate the image and double click on it to select it.The image does not show up in the Source disc image section at all.I have tested the image in a virtualbox to confirm that it is not faulty and have tried two different downloads of the imag
If I use Ubuntu's (10.4) Startup Disc Creator app to create Debian (Lenny) start up USB I just get (when using it on a separate machine) a black screen with the text "boot:" If I press Enter I get a pale blue screen but nothing else, some text if I press the TAB key, but it will do nothing. Is this because I use Ubuntu for a Debian OS or is there some other problem? I've noticed that the disc creator in Ubuntu only really likes Ubuntu related OSs. But since it recognised it when I created it I would have thought it'd work!
