I know this sounds like a really silly question, but I'm very new to using ubuntu. I was going to post this in the multimedia and video category but I noticed that the threads are very dead there.Anyway, I have a Canon Vixia HF10 digital camcorder, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to transfer my video off of it on to my computer. When I connect it via USB the computer sees the camcorder, but even after navigating through every folder I cannot find my video. I don't know if I'm missing a driver, or if there's something simple I can do in the terminal to transfer my videos, but I'm literally pulling my hair out trying to figure this out.
I installed proftpd on my Ubuntu 10.10 install. I also run multiple websites that I want to allow ftp access to for 2 different users. The websites are located in /home/www/. This is where the guide I was following told me to put them. I also don't have a user named www.How can I give write permission to upload, delete, and edit all the files in /home/www/ for multiple users? They can connect to the ftp server and see the file, just not change them.
have setup a LAMP server with ubuntu 10.04 server edition x86 for my study in VMware Workstation 7.1 For a assignment I had to make a php script that would load a file up to the server and set the name in a mysql database. According to the book the server should set the image in a cryptic folder in the /tmp/ folder.
This isn't working and i also try'd locate and find to find the image i uploaded. I checked the php.ini and file uploads were on but no folder so i set that one to /tmp/ but still no images. Can anyone help me with enabling this function?
every time I try to upload something via FTP it tells me:Quote:ERROR:> Requested action not taken (e.g., file or directory not found, no access).How do I give access to my ftp? (I try to upload to Desktop)I use vsftpd.
On several websites, such as WordPress and Facebook, when I go to upload pictures, in the window that pops up, all that I see is a big, empty box, even if pictures are in there. For example, let's say I navigate to my picture folder to choose a picture of my dog to upload. Neither the picture nor any of the other pictures in the folder will appear. Just a big, gray box, almost as if the folder were empty. Strangely, random pictures that I have downloaded from the web, such as one of Martin Luther that I have, show up. But even then, not all the pictures that I have downloaded!
This is perplexing to say the least!
Is this happening/has this happened to anyone before? Is it a bug in Ubuntu or have I neglected to download something important?
I'm on holidays, away from home and the machines I can use have all XP.
I can access my U1 account from there but it seems it is no possible to backup and upload anything to U1 from these XP's. It's rather anoying because I'll have to buy another SD card for my photo camera at this pace.
I am a photographer and upload a lot of photos online. Both to Facebook and flickr. But these sites although great for sharing photos with the world are not ideal backup solutions. I love Ubuntu One and try to utilize it as much as possible but frankly I am more than a little lazy. So I more often than not don't back up to U1. The same can also be said about my document uploads to Zoho and class projects. The idea here is whenever a user uploads a file Ubuntu should automatically copy it to the Ubuntu One folder. This would likely be implemented through a browser extension.
Although the idea and basic implementation are simple there are issues that must be considered. These include size, bandwidth and privacy issues. As such the user may not want to copy every single thing they upload to Ubuntu One. But having a popup come up every time something is uploaded is intrusive and annoying.
These issues could be combated through: -A strong settings framework -Zeitgeist integration -In browser dialogues (see the new "save your password/settings?" dialogues in Chrome/Firefox)
I can upload using FTP from a Windows machine. On same router, Ubuntu (using any FTP app) will transfer 20KB and then stall, so I cannot alter my own web site. Is there any way round this? Perhaps I should try another variety of Linux. I am certain that I used to be able to upload with an earlier version of Ubuntu.
What I am trying to do is edit the link target to force ip=xxxx.xxx.xxx string at end. I have a software program which access 4 different servers running the software but with different configs. In xp I can copy links and modify as above to correctly force the program to the various servers.
I have read the various how tos on hard vs sym links which I get. Playing around with hardlinks and sysmlinks (the examples I find) does not seem to be what I need. Feel like this is pretty basic stuff but I am a bit stumped.
I have been trying out Ubuntu One for the past couple of days but find it to be incredibly slow. At first i had put a folder will a large amount of images in the ubuntu one folder. The total size of it was 35Mb, after over 26 hours only 11,5Mb of that had been uploaded.
After looking around some on these forums i saw several comments about it being slow when it is a large amount of files, no matter if the filesize is small or large. I decided to try it out with a larger single file. I erased everything that was in the previous share and then put my testfile of 350Mb in the Ubuntu One folder.
After two hours of waiting i could still not see it on the U1 website so i decided to see how long it would take with dropbox and put a copy of that file in my dropbox folder as well. The file was uploaded correctly to dropbox in just a couple of minutes but it has still not been uploaded to the U1 website even though it has been 4-5 hours since i first put it in my U1 folder.
jpg files are not visible for upload. I only see the dir. trying to upload pictures to ebay. 9.10 and 10.4 are the same. I tried another sevice same thing happens. Can some one point me in the right direction.
upload photos to Photobox (other than one by one)? It keeps telling me I haven't got the plugins, offers me 2 but both are installed. FTP can't be used as they say (log in and drop stuff in). I have Mint Helena (Karmic Koala) and Mozilla 3.6.8
i can't even get that far on the ebay website. i've been using ubuntu on this computer for years, it all seems to be set up correctly, i have flash installed and can view videos, i have java installed and can view applets.go to url... and click the link on the top right that says sell. log in if you have to, enter a keyword, choose your category to sell in and go to the next page. on this page there's a picture section and the header says, "bring your item to life with pictures." next to it there's a link which allows you to show/hide options for where the picture comes from so you can upload one, link to a website, plus other options. i click the link to show the option for uploading a picture and it just brings me to the top of the page. each time i click that link it just brings me to the top of the page.
i thought maybe it was trying to open a popup window that got blocked but there's no notification in the url like there usually is, it just moves me to the top of the page and that's it.
Does anybody have an idea why I can't upload photos to Facebook?Always when I try to do it, both in Firefox and in Opera the message "The connection has been reset" appears... What could be the reason? Could it also be a problem with my router or provider? Because I presume the problem exists, since I have moved flat.
I am running php on my ubuntu server, and I am trying to upload files to it.
Heres my code:
I use the move_uploaded_file(), but I can't get the location to work correctly. "/var/www/upload/" uploads to "/var/www/". This is the only way i can get this code to work. I would like to upload to "/var/www/upload/".
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 server edition as a guest OS in Virtual Box. I am trying to configure it as a web server to use for testing purposes for websites. The present problem is that I cannot upload files to it using FTP. I have installed the VSFTPD daemon on the server. The server is connected to the Internet using the default NAT interface of Virtual Box. I have run the following commands to configure port forwarding for FTP with Virtual Box:
The host computer that I am using is a Macbook Pro (Intel) running 10.6.5. I have tried the following FTP clients without success; Mac command line FTP, Filezilla, Classic FTP, Firefox 3.6.12. I get the following errors with each of them:

I have one problem when i run application they dissepear Example : when i try to upload something when i press browse they minimize and dissepear ... also with other application when i press run or something like that they dissepear.
Since upgrading to 11.04, nautilus is crashing whenever I try to upload anything to a FTP server. It starts the transfer but then crashes immediately. Highly annoying as I'm a web developer and now stuck with using another FTP client that is less efficient for drag and drop file transfers...erg.
