Ubuntu / Apple :: Any Way To Index Drives For Instant Search?
Nov 28, 2010
I am used to doing very fast searches on the Mac. When I type into the search box in any finder window, the search results present themselves as I type. I am looking for the same functionality in Ubuntu. I tried Catfish but it doesn't have the speed I see on the Mac. Is there a way for me to index my drives so that searches are instantaneous, or are there any options I haven't explored yet?
I noticed that Ubuntu takes some time in building the file search index. It seems to do it overnight while my PC is powered down )Is there a way to build the index by a command so that I could do searches whenever I wanted, specially immediately after installing a new program?
Can anyone point me to already built and mostly working utilities that will catalog the contents of (external) USB and flash media in a way that they might be searched?With cheap (under $100 US) terabyte external drives, it is too easy to get another drive and fill it. I'm looking for utilities or applications that will help me know what I have, cull the duplicates, and avoid the need to spin a drive just to see if it holds what I seek.
Years ago there were utilities that would read the contents of diskette media and create a printable "index" or "catalog" page. The pages were conveniently sized to match the diskette so that one could store the page in the diskette sleeve for future reference.Later, the pages got replaced with applications that stored a disketter ID along with each file name. One could then search for a name, or pattern, and discover which diskette held the file(s) of interest. Today we don't have diskette sleeves, but we do have cases for our external USB drives and wallets for our flash media. A printed index would be nice to have.
am using the community build of Ubuntu 9.10, I have an old as dirt Power Macintosh G3 Blue And White, and I can't get it to install. I tried the live CD first of course, and now the alternate. Both tell me that no disk drives detected, even though Mac OS 9, X, and Fedora all detect both my 40gb seagate, my 120gb seagate, and my 120gb maxtor.I am trying to get this running with some sort of linux for a school project.What is happening is it asks me what driver to use, and if I select the bottom option that it is none of the above, it asks me to load a driver from a USB flash drive, which I don't know what driver to use. They are all standard IDE devices hooked into the built in bus. I obviously can't move past this point.

When I first got it, I started out running Ubuntu 5.10 way back in 2005. I was thinking of downloading and burning 6.06, and upgrading from there.
I have been going crazy trying to get Ubuntu 10 installed and working on my G3 B&W. When I boot into the live CD, hit Control-Option-F2 to get into a terminal, then do Fdisk -l, it only shows my CD-ROM. I got 9.04 to install, then updated to 9.1, then to 10, but when I reboot, I get the gave up waiting for root error. Tried typing exit, and changing the wait time to 90. I've spent a lot of time on this, and learned a lot. Anyone no how to get past this?
I am installing Ubuntu 10.04 on my new Mac Mini. It has 2 500GB hard-drives, and I have created a partition for Ubuntu. During installation, however, Ubuntu is not able to detect my disk drive, neither my network interface. So I am not able to 'Partition Disks' which is part of Ubuntu installation. Did any of you encounter this problem? Any solutions or workarounds? Should I setup my disks in anyway before installation or use boot args?
I have a set of Mac software RAID 0 drives that my friend gave me for spring break. I need to access a file on the drive in the Extra folder on one of the drives. It contains some startup settings that need to be changed before I can boot it properly. I loaded up ubuntu and tried to access the drive but only the top level files are readable and when I try to access the Extra folder it says "permission denied." The info on the folder permissions tab is User ID: 501 and Group ID: dialout. Owner permissions = r/w, all other groups/users = none. How can I make Ubuntu read/write to this Extra folder?
My time capsule's ip is 192.168.1.10, it's name is "Time Capsule", the drive I'm trying to mount is called Movie HD
If I input the following command:
sudo mount.cifs //192.168.1.10/Time Capsule/Movie HD /media/timecapsule/ -o pass=mypassword
I get a connection refused error.I tried a couple different variations such as "/"Time Capsule"/Movie HD",etc,every combination, but I get a connection refused error (111) every time.(I have two drives on my time capsule, the internal, Movie HD, and an external usb one, Media HD, I want to actually mount them both)On my time capsule I did set it guest access to read only... Also, when I go to my places> network I do see the time capsule in the list, but I get an error message that it can't access the shares when I try to open it.
I am running OSX Tiger (10.4.11) here on my trusty old G4 MDD with a "giga" 1.4gig CPU accelerator and doing quite well with it actually.I have discovered Gimp and Inkscape and love the open source concept.I registered only a few days ago, and have been lurking around to see if I can get a look at Ubuntu in action.Would it be possible to install some version of Ubuntu on a partition of one of my internal hard drives and be able to boot it, using the option key at power-up time?I guess this would be called a "dual-boot" situation.If so, can someone provide a link as to what to download.
i guess this is an installation issue as i am newish to Linux and got a F14 laptop from a used/refurb store... Anyway it seem i have difficulty with getting GTK running or maybe it is WGET...?
i did manage to install apt-get and was able to run synaptics ... but now whenever i try to run synaptics it flashes the interface and crashes. i tried apt-get search wget and it says invalid operation search. i tried apt cache wget and get a crash box in the upper right corner... i tried apt-get gtk+extra-2.1.2-4.fc14 and it says invalid operation gtk...
All of which is frustrating my attempts to get the GTK interface to J working. Their script uses WGET which i also cannot get.
I have just installed Ubuntu in a Windows Vista system. The installation seemingly went fine. After installation, system restarted to boot menu (grub?) where I selected Vista. Vista started fine. I restarted the pc from the Vista login screen. Now the problems started. At grub, I chose Ubuntu. It began to start up, made it through the Ubuntu logo with the dots, some splash screen or wallpaper came up and *bam* the computer powered off. Next I Wanted to boot Vista again. Grub came up for a half-second before power-off.
I tried to boot from the CD again to see about repairing grub or just reinstalling. The installer ran for a second before power-off. Next, tried BIOS boot manager to boot from the HDD again. Powered-off at the BIOS boot manager screen before I could choose where to boot from. Twice in a row. Tried to boot into BIOS to check settings for anything odd. Powered-off within 1 second after I got into the BIOS. Finally, I would hit the power button and it would turn on and then power-off instantly.
I unpulgged my Logitech VX Revolution mouse and the charger (it's fully charged and holding fine). I thought maybe the computer was hot (feels normal though), so I waited one minute. After that, I was able to boot from Grub to Windows fine. I restarted the pc from the windows login screen to try Ubuntu again. Got into grub and just repeated the same process from before with the same results. Nothing works. I waited one minute again, and I was able to boot into Vista fine. I am posting this from Vista with everything connected and working fine.
I downloaded the 32bit desktop version from the "enhanced download page." I burned the iso with the Toshiba DiscCreator software that came with the computer. I've used DiscCreator many times before with great success. Ubuntu was burned to a normal 80min/700mb Maxell CD-R. I'm afraid to reboot from Vista now and find that one of these times, I won't be able to get back in. I installed Ubuntu into an empty 9.77gb partition and formatted it as ext3. Used an empty 1.46gb partition as swap.

Is there a program already set up to do this? Probably similar to WASTE (URL...), though waste's client is currently unsupported on the newest version of ubuntu (make error having to do with char* or something). Preferably windows and linux supported. Another thing that could be of use would be a local ssh chat. For example someone connects to my box either as me or as another user and runs 'hiben' and a window (or i ran a command or something and have a window open for it) pops up that we can chat in. Something other than single line messages.
i am working on a model based on cpu load / cpu usages. where i need the instant cpu usage/cpu load, but i can able to find the cpu load average for last 1 , 5 or 15 minutes. Is there any command or any software by which i can able to find out that?
My Firefox used to start instantly, or at least near instant, but since yesterday it took about 30 sec to launch. Opening subsequent windows is near instant, but once all windows are closed it would take a long time to open again.
When I open it up in a terminal, it has absolutely no error message, clean start up and shutdown.
I turned up the CPU clock speed from 1.2GHz to 2.0GHz and it doesn't seem to help. Other programs starts fine too, so I kind of ruled out performance issue.
Yesterday I also tinkered with compiz settings and also installed the cairo dock and some media codecs. But I can't pinpoint when does it happen exactly, I also struggle to draw any relationship if there is any. And if it matters Firefox is 3.6.10 and Ubuntu is 10.04.

Ubuntu but an advanced user on Windows. On my home Workgroup network, I an running Ubuntu 10.04.1 on a spare PC and Windows 7 Professional on a fast 4 core AMD PC. I built both PCs myself. The Win7 system is fully updated with maintenance. So is the Ubuntu system. The Win7 desktop system sees and shares files and printers with an XP SP3 laptop and Win 7 Home edition Netbook... and the the Ubuntu system The Ubuntu system can browse and see shares on the the XP Laptop but not the Window 7 Desktop or Netbook. Both Win7 systems can browse and share the the Ubuntu system. There are no current problems anywhere in my Windows network.
Ubuntu gets into a login loop when trying to see the Win7 systems. But before that problem gets solved.I have problem with random BSODs (00007f) on the Windows 7 systems immediately when I first try to browse the network from Ubuntu. The effect is instantaneous. You click on an icon that will browse the network and bingo the Windows system takes a BSOD 00007f dump.This appears to be something new in 10.04.1. I have loaded 8.04 and 9.10 in past just for training and and curiosity reasons and never had this problem. In the past, I lost interest and never went deeper. This time I have a dedicated PC in my network for Ubuntu and need to get deeply into Linux. I am trying to get up to speed on Linux this time around because I find that Linux systems are appearing in the network at work and I need to understand how to use and network Linux.
I booted up my laptop as usual and found that when I opened Empathy IM Client it would not allow me to login when I changed the status to Online (or equivalent). Normally as soon as I open the client the Messaging Status can be changed in the top right next to the clock so I tried to remove it but unfortunately it took the shut down panel with it.
To try and bring them back I used the restore panel commands in terminal:
how you install Oracle Instant Client on Kubuntu.I have Oracle XE and Lazarus installed on a KB machine, but Lazarus can't connect because it's missing the file "libociei.so".I found that file in the Oracle Instant Client which I downloaded and unzipped from Oracle.com. However, I have no idea how to install it. Normally you issue a "sudo" command of some sort. I can't just copy the files because I don't have privileges to copy to the system folders, and don't know where to copy them to anyway. The only online help I've found is for installing PHP with it, which I'm not interested in.
My laptop is dell vostro 3500, I am using ubuntu 10.10 marvic amd64 operating system.I have installed empathy instant messenger. And I added yahoo chat. from that yahoo account I want use the audio/video call. But I was unable use that feature.
Simple but puzzling problem. When I plug my USB mouse into one particular port, the mouse does not activate. Unplugging it kills the laptop. My laptop will not turn on unless the battery is removed and reinserted. I think this may be a power supply issue, but I'm not sure. I just recently purchased a new A/C power cable because my old one was toast, but this problem has been happening since before then. I'm getting a little irritated and was wondering if there is a diagnosis and solution to this problem.
ive searched the forums and web for info on this but i am stumped.not unusual since i started to use linux.gparted crashes after about 3 seconds of grayed out screentime.here is my terminal readout after entering sudo gparted command.tenza@tenza-desktop:~$ sudo gparted
I need to perform instant filecopy between a pair of servers. Its loosely based on a master slave setup as we have ucarp floating a virtual IP between the two. services are on both boxes (tftp, apache). I'm happy with that, I now need a way to instantly sync files from set directories, as we could see problems if files have changed should the system fail over without being in sync
I know I could cron *1 but I don't want it running EVERY minute, in any case, if the change was within the last minute, then it wouldn't have the change anyway. I think it can be done with rsync daemons on box boxes, but I can't find a guide to to this. ATM the slave has been setup to accept rsync from the master, so I just need the config to have all changes on the master instantly replicated.

I have the normal OS choices menu (Windows XP or Unbuntu) but when I choose ubuntu I get an instant flash of an error message on a black screen so quick I cannot read the whole thing but I caught "error" and "format" and then the computer reboots. I have no problem getting into Windows.
I'm trying to find a good desktop search tool. Beagle is dead, Recoll and Strigi are KDE, and Tracker is not many features (can't even search Thunderbird 3). Do I miss something? Is desktop search on Linux dead? Should I use Google Desktop Search instead
I'm a Linux newbie and for my new job I have to do a lot of instant messaging to clients. They are on a variety of services, aim, icq, msn, myspace, facebook, yahoo, Google Talk, jabber, and .mac/ichat Is there a good instant messaging client that covers most of these on one application? I am using Mandriva with KDE 4.2.
I can't capture sound in aMSN instant messenger. I'm tried to test sound capture in sound preference but it has no sound(Beep). Mainboard AliveNF6G audio Chip: Realtek ALC888 i'm changed to PulseAudio but not work. anyone can help me? or have the other idea.
