General :: What Format Should Rip A CD Track In For A Windows User
Apr 4, 2010
I wanted to show a track from a CD to a friend who uses Windows. I tried to rip it in MP3 (LAME) format, because I couldn't remember whether Windows Media Player can read OGG or FLAC (whatever that is) format. Due to some kind of error (no explanation given other than "command failed"), my K3B would not rip in MP3. Which of the formats can Windows Media Player read? I know it can read WAV, but that's inconveniently large to send by e-mail or over an instant messenger.
I'm using LibreOffice 3.3.2 to open a document I received through work. The document is from MS Word in .doc format and has some track changes. I started using Libre Office to track my changes to the document but the only format I can save it in and retain my changes is .odt which is fine for me. However I would like to return this in .doc format.
It seems odd that LibreOffice happily opens a document with track changes but cannot save them back in that format.
Am I doing something wrong? I am using Edit>Changes>Record and then File>Save As.
I thought Linux couldn't do anything with Windows Media Audio files because the format is proprietary. So when a friend sent me a WMA file, I was surprised to find I could listen to it without needing to borrow a Windows-using computer. Is it only recording and saving in WMA format that we can't do? (And is it the same with the Windows movie format (.WMV)?
just wondering is there a simple script to convert datetime to UTC format. I have been searching different forums but most answers are for converting UTC to datetime. For example what is a simple command/script to convert todays datetime to UTC format i.e. '2009-10-09 11:47:59'.
I need some assistance in trying to format a USB hard drive to vfat format but can't seem to do so. I am currently using RHEL 5.3. I have tried the following commands and they all come back as "command not found"
I have tried using Linux several times but to be truthful it just seemed to be so complicated when compared to windows OS's That it just never really appealed. The one thing That really annoys me about Linux is that Widows makes it so easy to connect to the internet and even if you run into a problem nearly every Provider offers support for Win users.
My provider BigPond (Australia) Solves all Win OS problems with just a simple phone call, but when I say LInux " Sorry We don't support that system." is the reply. So! My cable modem is supplied by BigPond but when I try to log in using Ubuntu 10.4 : Nothing works. Linux just can't recognise the hardware and no one seems to be able to tell me how you you link Ubuntu to your normal Internet hardware.
Why is it so difficult for Linux users to do what is just a breeze for Windows users. Until Linux can match Microsoft in user friendly competition, it will always run a dismal Last to Windows in any form and Win 7 is just such an easy to use service. So is there anyone out there who can tell me how I get Ubuntu to recognize my Modem and at least get me started?
How do you configure a Windows (preferably latest version) machine for a Linux power user, so that s/he can get most out of it?if all you have to add is a one-liner, your answer will be converted to a comment.
Long story short, someone repaired my brother's computer and set a password on his account, now we can't get in and can't contact the person who set the password. Is it possible to create a Windows XP user if I have access to the windows partition, from a linux partition or pendrive, for example TinyCore?
I am accustomed to Windows, and I am inexperienced with Linux. What I am trying to do is open NASM in Linux Mint. After several (poorly made) attempts at finding binaries on the hard drive that might open NASM, I have concluded that the problem is my own inexperience.
I have installed NASM using Synaptic in hopes that I might learn x86 assembly, and I am using Linux as that is the OS that is used in the book I am using to teach myself. Unfortunately, as I have stated, I cannot even figure out how to open NASM, and thus I cannot test what I have learned.
I've come across this rare issue, I have a friend that uses some software that is particularly slow in Windows 7, the best compatibility is in Windows XP, I told him to make a partition and have both OSes in the computer, at which he replied: "Could I have a different OS for each user?", it seemed like a good question to me, so is that possible?, suppose that I login and it boots me to Vista, then I loggout and Linus Torvalds comes and logins and boots him into Ubuntu, he gets bored and logs out, afterwards my friend comes and logs in, booting into XP, summarizing:
The operating system that will be loaded will depend on the user that logs in.
At my office we are having a samba sever, staff will access their respective folder from their Windows XP systems. I wish to track all user access activity like file creation, modification, deletion and etc. I tried smbstatus -v, from the output I am not able to guess what the user done. I am giving some of the results I get please help me or you can suggest best way to get access log.

Possible Duplicate: time tracking application on linux Every Linux time-tracking application I've seen assumes you're tracking time for projects, perhaps to create invoices later for your clients. This is not what I'm looking for. Rather, I just want some insight into how I spend my time on my computer. I'd like to waste less time on my computer, and spend my time on more productive tasks. The first step to improving anything is to measure it. But I can't be bothered or remember to click on some icon and switch "projects" every time I change from my terminal to browsing ....., or something like that. I want the time I spend on different applications tracked automatically.

I received a DVD of my son playing hockey at the Verizon Center in DC. The accompanying audio only comes out of the right channel.

I have a friend that tried to change her user password on Windows, and now can't log in to her account. Of course it's the only user account on the computer. Are there system recovery tools on any Linux liveCDs that could change the passwords of Windows user account?
