Ubuntu :: Install Firefox Tar.bz2 File After Extracting?
Apr 26, 2010
ish but I did manage to right-click the Firefox tar.bz2 file and choose to 'extract here'...now I've got the new extracted folder on the desktop but I'm lost as to how to run the installation of the 3.7 alpha 4 release.

I am really trying to learn the heart of linux, and not rely on gui's and package managers for everything. I am trying to download firefox 3.6. I downloaded the arc file, and extracted it to my home folder, but I don't know what to do next. I am also clueless as to how to install tar or tar.gz files, and tell them where to go, etc. Firefox is the priority question here. I am sure I can get it from the package manager, but I want to learn to do it with the arc files, and tar files, etc, and not rely on the gui for everything like in Windows. I am a Linux newbie, converting to Linux for hobby and educational purposes, but I have no direction, or no sense of where to go, or how to learn. I am running Kubuntu 10.04 LTS.
I have a remote Debian 5 machine on which I'm trying to extract a tar-file (Django 1.2.1, but that's unimportant). The first 1300 or so files extracts just fine (of about 2800 in total), after which errors liketar: Django-1.2.1/tests/urls.py: Cannot open: No such file or directoryshows up for the rest of the files, finally ending up with atar: Error exit delayed from previous errorsI use the commandtar xzvf Django-1.2.1.tar.gzI've also tried with sudo (but I'm extracting in my home directory, which I should obviusly have permissions to use without). I've tried gunzipping first (runs flawlessly) and then running tar xvf, but to no avail. I've fetched the file using wget:
I have this file that is in ZIP. I can open it and browse the files inside via archive manager. But extracting it gives me an error. When using GUI it says that 'ERROR while extracting files' and in command line when I command: unzip -q myfile.zip
It display this errors

I'm trying to extract a file from a zipped archive, and receive an error message saying "caution: filename not matched:".
I suspect the route cause of this is that the original filename contained accented characters (which now show as question marks in the zipped filename). I've tried renaming the file in the archive, but get the same error.
My OS is Fedora 14 - 64bit. I want to extract and install this file "LEXMARK-INKJET-LEGACY-wJRE-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm.sh.tar.gz". At the moment this is in the download box in the top left corner of my monitor.
I have tried several ways, but all I get is Command Line Output. Gzip:stdin: unexpected end of file./bin/gtar: unexpcted EOF archive. /bin/gtar: error is not recoverable: exiting now.
I'm trying to extract the audio from an mp4 video file and convert it to mp3 using ffmpeg. The problem is that the resulting audio file is only 3m2s long, whereas the video file is 8m15s long. Anyone know why the audio file is being truncated? Am I doing something wrong? Apart from being truncated the mp3 file plays perfectly. Here's what ffmpeg has to say about the video file:
I have a bunch of tar files in a folder with the name in 'file_name.MMDDYYYY.HH.mm.SS.tar' format. I need to write a shell script that picks latest and greatest of the above tar files and extracts it to a particular folder
I am trying to extract just a few files/folders from a Time Machine backup, but can't seem to find them. The drive is automatically mounted in Ubuntu, and am able to access after enabling view hidden files, the HFS+ Private Data Directory. But that is a jumbled array of thousands of numbered folders, with each taking a fair amount of time to open on this aging Dell running 10.10.
I've tried running the standard Places - Search for Documents, with 'Show hidden and backup files' enabled, but that won't pull up any of the search times I'm going for (and seemingly won't find anything at all on the drive). So, is there any way to decipher the directory tree so as to be able to access this data from Ubuntu? Or perhaps a file embedded somewhere in there that lists out the original structure, so that I can use it as an index to see what number correlates to what originally named folder?
There are some log files that I wish to get some information from (Apache Access Log) but it is huge! All I need as of right now is any information from date and time A to date and time B. What commands can I use to extract this information from the access_log and put it into another file with just that information? I created a file called "access_info" by doing Code: touch access_info but I was not sure where to go from there.
########## some text text also includes empty lines ########## some more text ##########
Basically all sections are separated by 10 hashes and I need to somehow only print all lines in the last section (the "some more text" part in the example above"). I tried all kind of things with sed and awk but I didn't find any way to identify the last "section".
I use Lenny, and was trying to mount a .iso image, supposedly a cd imagem.
This is what I get from dmesg | tail:
debian:/home/zac/cscd# dmesg | tail [ 1811.505199] floppy0: disk absent or changed during operation [ 1811.505207] end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
I did a little research on the web and it seems that this file is not really a cd image, but simply data in a .img file. What do you think of that?
debian:/home/zac/cscd# file cscd3.iso cscd3.iso: data
Some people recommend to extract the data via the dd command, but it didn't seem very safe for me to do that!
is it possible to extract the data into a directory (instead of a device) using dd? This file is supposed to be a software. I wanted to run it on wine by keeping it mounted on a mount point in my file system. Does it make any sense to try to do this if the file simply isn't a cd image?
I have downloaded the firefox 3.7a which was a tar.bz2 file. After downloading extracted the tar.bz2 into a download folder. Now I can figure out to do from there. How can update using this firefox update. All the zypper/yast ect. only use my repositories that dont have 3.7a and I can not figure out what else to do. Google searches all just say use package manager. But how do you use a package manager for a file on your hard drive?
I am trying to create a self extracting file for Windows from Ubuntu 10.04 using 7zip.
I tried these commands:
7zr -sfx7z.sfx a output.exe *.txt 7zr -sfx/usr/local/etc/7z.sfx a output.exe *.txt
Both show this error:
Error: can't find specified sfx module
System error: E_FAIL
I have all the .sfx modules on /home/username/.sfx/ because I use them previously with "rar" and it worked fine, but it's not working for 7zip. I also copied 7z.sfx to /usr/local/etc/ to test the second command like shown here but I get the same error.
I am trying to upload some pics on my Facebook account using Firefox. When I click on Facebook's file upload icon, Firefox bring up a 'File Upload' window. I noticed that smaller image file is previewed on the lower right hand corner, while bigger image file is not. Is there anyway I can change this behavior or maybe change what Firefox is using to browse my files?
I am running F11 and I want to mount an FTP, but when I try to connect to an ftp server using Places -> Connect to Server, or the bookmarks I made I get an error that says 'Failed to execute child process "/usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox" (No such file or directory)' and sometimes it mounts anyway, but most the time it doesn't, and it never connects to the folder I asked it to, I just have to open the mount and navigate to it. I figure this happened because Firefox upgraded to 3.5.1 and the folder is now /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/firefox, but I don't know how to update this so that it looks in the right location.
I never had any problems extracting any rar files until about a month or so ago. Now I can't seem to extract ANY video file that has been rared. It is becoming a pain to have to boot into windows just to perform a 15 second task. I dont have any problems with any other files except video files. I get a 'CRC Failed' message. None of my searches have yielded any results. Does anybody know what is causing this problem and how to correct it? Or yet, why it just started happing? I'm using karmic, and was using p7zip-rar until the problem began. The I added unrar and unrar-free but that didn't make any difference.
Tried running simdock from software center...uninstalled because I was getting this error after trying to run ap "Can't load image from file '/usr/share/firefox/icons/mozicon128.png': file does not exist."
I have a bunch of split Z files and I want to extract them but I cannot find how. To be more specific I have a file named foo which is compressed into files foo.0Z, foo.1Z foo.2Z. I have tried uncompress but does not work I have tried gunzip,gzip etc but no result either. Even 7zip will not do the work.
I am trying to install MySQL, Apache, and PHP onto my Linux Ubuntu laptop from a cdrom that I got from a teach yourself MySQL, Apache, and PHP book I bought. First off there were two steps which i think i did right. The first was to mount the CD-ROM under /mnt in my file system which i did and there seems to be no problem except for the reply "mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only"
now first of all there are two things I need to explain, first of all I was superuser for all of this by using the command su at the beginning of my terminal session. Second of all the symbol "|" on my line of code above looks different from the symbol in the book. It should have a small space in the middle of it. However it looks like this on my keyboard so I am assuming it is simply a difference in text font. That is it, it would be really nice to figure out what went wrong because to be honest I am curious as to why the book is giving me code that gives multiple errors.
I recently saved a large number of web pages from a website on my computer and all of them contains images. I needed help extracting all the images from the webpages(all of them) there are about 17000 saved webpages in the folder and all of them have images. I am not sure how to extract images from webpage in batch. google search dint turn up anything.. is there lika a tool or something for the job or should a script be written for it?
I have come across a webpage where there are several (thousands of hyperlinks). Of those hyperlinks, many are named "CDS" and in each of these CDS hyperlink- there are certain lines which i need to chop off!! I kind of have this feeling that AWK would be the one to use.
Firefox opens file listing instead of Nautilus opening file listing.When I access a folder via "Places" -> "Home Folder" or "Places" -> "Downloads", Firefox opens and list the contents of the directory.I have re-installed Nautilus, un-installed Firefox and then going to "Places" -> "Home Folder" or "Places" -> "Downloads" launches Nautilus and I can view the contents normally. Anybody else had this problem with Firefox ? Anybody know how to fix this Firefox problem ?Running Ubuntu Desktop 9.10 64bit.
I use ubuntu 8.10 with the ubuntu packaged version of firefox, however i would like to use the latest java runtime environment from the Sun website and NOT use the ubuntu packages. the problem I have is that i do not know where to place the link to my latest java plugin file. Where is the location for mozilla plugins ? the directory ~/.mozilla/plugins didn't exist and even when I created one and put a link there I still had the older version of Java.
