Ubuntu :: Can't Write To My Documents

Mar 6, 2010

I have installed Jaunty on my laptop. I have a dual boot with Windows 7 and I've set up access to my windows partition. I can read and write to the music and photos directories but I can't write anything to My Documents in the windows file system. I have tried in Gnome and from a terminal and checked that I have write permissions set correctly.

For example in the My Documents directory:

$ mkdir test
mkdir: cannot create directory `test': Operation not supported

I get the same message if I try to rename My Documents using either mv in the terminal or the Rename option in gnome.

Ubuntu :: Mapping Windows My Documents Folder To My Documents Folders

Dec 18, 2010

I can access my windows my documentsmusic by mounting my windows drive and browsing to it. I can then playwatch my movies and pics in Ubuntu.But what I really want to be able to do is re-map the Ubunbu docs folder like so:

Ubuntu Pics = Windows My Documents pics.
Ubuntu Videos = Windows My Documents Videos.

I'm not very unix savy so I've been using Ubuntu tweak PersonalDefault Folder Locations setting and browsing to my Windows folders. But it doesn't work.I have managed to make a desktop 'short cut' and that works but I'd rather set the system wide default document folders.

OpenSUSE Install :: Change Mountpoint Of Partition / Media / Documents To / Documents

Dec 25, 2009

How can I change the mountpoint of my partition /media/documents to /documents.This is a partition of sdb and a fixed disk.The reason is that /media/ sometimes creates ghostdirectories while /Windows/C never does so, programmes writing/reading from this partition therfore don't work if a ghostdir_ exists.(BTW Suse is on sdb5 and sdb6. on sda is windows and used to be Ubuntu, the Suse-swap is sda5. Windows is out of use.)

Ubuntu :: Get The .iso File Instead Of Apart Documents?

Dec 3, 2010

I was trying to install Ubuntu on a USB stick. Here is my problem. So I went to the ubuntu site and downloaded Ubuntu. Now I have the .iso file on my computer but if I click on it, it asks me to burn but I want to save it on a USB stick. I did that with Universal USB-Installer. It goes smooth but when its finished its not the .iso file thats in it but just some documents and stuff... How do I get the .iso ? ( I want to use it with VirtualBox but you need the .iso for that...)

Ubuntu :: Getting To Win 7 My Documents Files

Jan 30, 2010

So my windows 7 partition got all messed up. Fortunately I have a working Ubuntu partition so I mounted the windows partition in Ubuntu and went in to pull my files over to linux so I could wipe the windows partition and reinstall windows 7. Everything is going great until I try to get into my documents.

I go into documents and settings so I can get at said files and it's empty. I figure it's a security issue so I try to alter the security settings and of course it doesn't let me. At this point I realize "crap my windows user account has a password on it".

So to the point at hand, is there any way to mount the windows partition and get around the windows login so I can get at the secured files (and copy them to the ubuntu partition)?

Ubuntu :: Documents Owned By Root?

Apr 10, 2010

I reinstalled 9.10 yesterday and put the home folder on its own partition. Now it has my home folder as owned by me but all the files in it including Documents are owned by root. I did tell it to change ownership on enclosed files with no luck. So I can't paste my backup files into the Documents folder. I can do GKsudo nautilus but it times out every 15 minutes and I have to restart copying the 67GB of files constantly.

I remember a while back that there was something I could do along the lines of changing my ubuntu user and group and that would make the mac folder think that I am the owner of it. How do i do this and will this work?

Ubuntu :: LPR Not Printing Complete Documents

Jul 20, 2010

I have just upgraded from Jaunty to Karmic. Mostly it's gone okay; a few things broke but I can fix most of them. One thing I can't figure out, though: 'lpr' stopped working properly. Printing via a GUI (i.e.: using the "print" option from an application) works fine. Printing to CUPS-PDF works fine. But printing via the command line (ie: lpr myFile.txt) doesn't work. It consistently cuts off the first line of text. For what it's worth I have a Dell Inspiron connected wirelessly to an HP OfficeJet J6480. HPLIP is installed and working fine.

Ubuntu :: View MS OneNote Documents?

Sep 26, 2010

I just need to view the documents, editing is no required. A OneNote (*.one) to *.pdf converter will do just fine, but I couldn't find one. Why do I need to open MS OneNote files? A friend is taking notes in class with a touchscreen laptop (Windows 7, MS Office 2007) and I can't really complain about his choice of software when he's being nice and sharing his notes.

Ubuntu :: Documents Folder Recovery?

Apr 26, 2011

I have somehow 'disappeared' my Documents folder.I was working on an Open Office document, when I chose "File/Save As" this is the very unwelcome message that came up:/home/ray/documents does not exist. Looking in Places, sure enough it is gone! Looking in Trash the newest file / folder is April 17. Today is April 26.How I may have done this?I guess I'll find out how good my backups are..I need to hit the road for the rest of the day and may not see your responses until tomorrow.Ubuntu 10.10 on a Lenovo R61iEdit:Well, now I've really embarrassed myself. I did find the contents of /home/ray/documents. I'll have to put it down to 'mouse tripping' Earlier I had needed to empty out a USB drive so I could use it this afternoon.

1 - Using Nautilus I created a folder in /home/ray/documents called called "8G holder" to hold the contents of the 8GiB USB drive for the evening.2 - The new folder did not appear to be created, so I did it again.Moved all of the USB contents over, wiped the USB drive and set it aside for use.It now seems that through mouse tripping I some how renamed documents, to "8G holder", created a second folder named "8G holder" in the first one.So now my question is much simpler. It is OK to rename the top "8G holder" to "Documents" and expect all to return to normal?Given that Linux is case sensitive should the name be "documents" or "Documents" ?

Ubuntu :: Change Path Of Documents?

May 31, 2011

I have a dual boot Win 7 and Ubuntu 11.04 I just started setting up - and know almost nothing about Linux - I have all my data on separate drives from my OS drives, and would like to "arrive" at my "My Documents" file when i choose "Documents" in Ubuntu.

The location of "My Documents" is - /media/New Volume/My Documents (which I found by dragging the folder onto the terminal) not quite sure how to put in the right command - something like ln -s /media/New Volume/My Documents ~Documents - (but that isn't right and didn't work).I also want to do the same with Music, Pictures and Videos.

Ubuntu :: Lost All Documents Folder

Jul 30, 2011

Whilst clicking through my toolbar the other day I accidentally dragged a shortcut from my documents folder onto my desktop. Not particularly wanting it there and 'cut' not doing anything I tried 'Move To > Toolbar' and then made the somewhat dumbass mistake of pressing 'Merge' thinking that'd put it back. Instead it did exactly as it said it'd do (shock horror) and turned my documents folder into one unopenable link ie. 'The Link "Documents" is Broken. Move it to the Rubbish Bin? - This link cannot be used, because its target "/home/supergibbon/Documents" doesn't exist.'

Without any obvious Edit>Undo type option, I was hoping you may be able to get the folder back as I don't really want to lose all my documents.

Ubuntu One :: Sharing Bookmarks And Documents?

Sep 1, 2011

I have two Ubuntu Lucid Lynx computers, and I want to share files between them. Whenever I need some file, it's in the another computer. So what I want? I want that my PC's synchronize the files together: When I create a new bookmark (in Chrome) on computer X, it will appear in the computer Y's browser. I also have Documents-folder on both computers. When I put something in that folder I want it to be shown on the other computer's Documents-folder.

Is this possible with Ubuntu One?
