Ubuntu Networking :: Copy Files From XP Infact Folders Using TERMINAL In Netbook, Not Copy And Paste Using Mouse?
Jul 9, 2010
just installed ubuntu couple of days back on my netbook. I am still a beginner, enjoying my adventure exploring ubuntu. I have another desktop which runs on XP. I am able to access XP shared folders through my netbook(linux). However, i wanted to copy files from XP infact folders using TERMINAL in my netbook, not copy and paste using my mouse. Are there any commands for it?
I started having some serious issues with my mouse after running updates yesterday. I am basically unable to copy and paste any text and this is making editing essays a major major major PITA! Basically when I click and drag my mouse to copy, the highlight looks good until I unclick then nothing is highlighted. Even trying to double click on words to highlight single words results in the entire paragraph being hightlighted. For my two laptops running 9.10 I have to disable the touchpad, I prefer a usb mouse, after logging in, but if leave the touchpad enabled the problem still exists.
This problem only showed up yesterday, after the update as best I can tell, and disabling my touchpad for like the past 4 or 5 releases, including 9.10. I run xubu/xfce4, but I have booted into Gnome and its the exact same problem. I have the problem on two laptops, both running 9.10, and both were updated yesterday.This is not one of those childish "that's it I am going back to winblowz, Linux suxorz!" , but I will have to temporarily go back and use MS Office until I can find out what is wrong here, b/c I gotta get essays written and without being able to copy text it is very rudimentary.
I would like to have the following actions enabled in vim: 1. To go to some place, I click the left mouse key 2. To copy text TO the vim editor, I mark the text first in some other window (browser, emacs, xterm) and then I middle-click (or shift-middle click). 3. To copy text FROM the vim editor, I select the text (left-click, hold down, select text, release left button) and then paste the text to somewhere else via the middle button 4. The same as (3) but TO the vim editor itself.
I have the following content of my .vimrc: :set number :set mouse=r :set selectmode+=mouse :behave xterm
With that configuration, the points 2-4 are working. When I change mouse=r to mouse=a, then 1 AND 3 is working, where I have to press the shift key in addition to press the middle mouse button. How to enable all pieces 1-4, and at best without having the shift-key pressed down to be able to paste text? How should my .vimrc look like? EMacs is not a solution since I am working remotely over a large distance and the network is not suitable to have an EMacs session opened at the remote pc.
I just noticed that highlighting text and middle button clicking no longer copies and pastes as it has it has been for years. I haven't upgraded anything or installed any new software so this is a bit confusing for me. How I may restore this function? BTW, it doesn't work anywhere, terminal, firefox, etc. For clarity, the mouse itself works, I can point, click, etc... it is just the copy/paste function that has failed -disappeared- Using Suse and KDE desktop
What is the best way to copy and paste some text among text documents in Linux terminal environment? Suppose I have 2 documents, A and B, and I want to copy some part of A to B. What is the way to achieve this?
I often have issues starting my window manager--xfce. My computer misbehaves in one of 3 ways, one of which is to fail to open X, but generate several screens of info. I want to paste that info to this site, but since I'm in the shell, not the terminal (please correct my vocabulary if it's wrong here), I don't know how to copy and paste the output, since right-clicking doesn't give me a menu. Even if I could copy I'm not sure the information would be accessible in X. Are there any other options?
I have this treacherous program in C which uses external static libraries (extern etc), and want to do a coverage test of it. The libraries are written in fortran. I compile like this Code: gcc -fprofile-arcs -ftest-coverage -o main main.c library.o I run my nice program like that
Code: ./main Then I do the magic stuff Code: gcov main.c library.f
Ok 98% of the lines were used in main.c, and I get a file with line counts and all that. Great! But, I need to know the coverage in my library too! It says 0.0% and that's impossible. So what can I do? I can't run it like an executable because it's a library.
And why is the terminal not accepting my copy paste? I copy some lines from my IDE, then I want to paste it into the terminal (with ctrl-v of course, not some crazy local application non-standard counter-intuitive key combo made just to cause agony among honest users!), and that could've been the only problem here, but it isn't. I can't even paste with that right click menu. So, if I was crazy before, I went nuts after that. My great "solution" was to paste it into the firefox URL field (not the search field ) and then copy that and paste it into the terminal. Is that common practice for you all while dealing with that unburied DOS-window?
I installed Slackware 13.37 current 32 bit (kernel 188.8.131.52-smp) last saturday and almost everything works fine. I don't understand why I cannot use Ctrl-Ins and Shift-Ins shortcuts for copy and paste in console terminal. Shortcuts works fine in X terminal (fluxbox) Konsole... but they don't in text console.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. Now I am organising the structure of maps and folders, etc. My struggle is that I seem to have no permission to copy, paste and move files to another place then the home folder and the desktop.I am a total newby in Ubuntu and coming from a Windows operating system, so please give me some assist. I guess it must be very simple, but I don't have a clue at the moment.
I just installed Fedora11 with the KDE desktop and completed a yum update. Every time i try to copy and paste files and even delete files from a file manager or my desktop, I get this error:Quote:Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:klauncher said: Error loading 'kio_trash'.or thisQuote:Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:klauncher said: Error loading 'kio_file'.orQuote:Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:klauncher said: Error loading 'kio_desktop'.Current KDE version is 4.2.2
1) I manually enter a particular web site address in the browser.
2) When the page displays on my machine, it shows a number of links I need to visit, one after the other.
3) Each of these links display another page (file) from which I "cut and paste" information. I do this by highlighting manually the wanted info, click "copy" then select an open file on my computer, select "undo" if necessary to remove any previous content, click "paste" and then "save".
4) I then call a Yabasic program that reads the saved file and trims unwanted info.
5) At the completion of the Yabasic program, I click the web page tag, click the "back" button to return to the first page (since I am in the second) and click the next link in this first page till all links have been visited.
6) visit the next known web site and repeat 1 to 5
In an automated program, what I need to do is:
1) Visit the known page of the web site showing the links 2) save the page showing the links (the first page) 3) make a list of those links 4) visit each link one after the other and save its page from which I will programmatically (Yabasic) select info. 5) repeat 1 to 4
I can do this in "Yabasic" (which can issue Linux commands) or PHP although I do not know PHP much.the purpose of this is to associate towns and cities of the world with their respective political/geographical divisions and their respective time zone. This has to be done often because that data changes regularly.
My usb stick will not allow me to easily copy and paste files on to it, or delete them once I no longer want them on the drive. Its owner is root. How can I change the owner? At the moment it is loading as a stylesheet in media/usb0.
The file is transferring at a very low speed. 74mb in 4 minutes
I suspect I will do better if I set up the drive via fstab. What entry should I put in fstab for a USB stick drive?
just want to download the 60mb-ish pack of family photos from my external usb hard drive. I've gone through a multitude of wikis and help threads and can't seem to figure out how to copy and paste those files to my laptop The usb hd works perfectly as I just was using it about 1 hour ago when I still had vista on this laptop. Here's a copy of my fstab as that seems the file all the wiki's:
Lets say I log in to bash, open a file in vi, then using alt-f2 I open a new terminal. After logging in I navigate to a second file and open that in vi. How can I CnP between these two files?
I found this from [URL]. I'm not familiar with this command shift-8-y-y. I follow the vimtutor and use virtual mode. I tried this sequence and was unsuccessful.
And, I read this about registers. I found a mention of using double_quote-p to 'put' or paste the register, but this does not work in a different file. The second file reported the register empty.
Alternatively, I read in the VIM docs, it is possible to open multiple files under split screens. This may be a course to a solution. The need I often encounter has me navigating in a different bash window to find a file, then wishing to copy between the two. Whereas, I imagine, a split VIM window useful for files in the same directory.
At the moment I'm using:"cp -ap . /destination-folder"to copy everything from the folder I'm in to another folder.That works.Is it possible to cp everything except:folder1/folder2/in the current folder I'm in?
I have been using Ubuntu 10.04 (32 bit) as a headless workstation, running a VNC screen. Worked perfectly for about 3 weeks, then suddenly, I lost the Drag and Drop capability, for all applications.For example: Dragging and dropping to move items on the desktop does not work. The item simply pops back to the original location.Dragging and dropping to move items from one folder to another does not work. Same behavior the item just pops back to the original location.Dragging and dropping Bookmarks in Firefox does not work. The attempted Drag and Drop is ignored.Copy and paste still works fine.The problem does NOT occur when using an attached monitor (primary display screen :0).After much Googling (including these forums), I suspected that the changed behavior was caused by an update (from Ubuntu Update Manager). I confirmed this with the following:
Reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04 fresh from the live cd. Configured minimal networking and installed VNC server. Tested Drag and drop -- works okay Applied pending updates (116) from Ubuntu Update Manager Tested Drag and drop -- not working
I am using vnc4server and openssh-server installed from the repositories using Synaptic.
I have encountered a problem:I have "while" loop; at each run a set of outputs is produced but then I need to shift them into a corresponding folder ; otherwise next run the new outputs will be over-written. Furthermore, I need to pipe what I have on the screen inside a file. I have put my code in the following:
I have a 160GB harddrive which I installed a F12, would like to upgrade to a bigger drive, but I hate to have to re-install everything.
Recommend a good disk copy utility? The utility should be able to not only copy files, but boot sector and everything. So I just need to make a copy, change my BIOS to boot from the new drive and run everything as before.
im using ubuntu 10.04 sometimes i find more useful to use the terminal to copy or move folders or files to other directories (more important when they need admin permission)
today i tried to copy ALL files from a directory to another. and i realized that i dont know. i know that that "~ mv /ThisThing/ /ThisFolder/" "~ cp /ThisThing/ /ThisFolder/" but howould i be able to copy EVERYTHING from a folder into another. tis is diferent from copying the folder itself (which i also would like to know)i bet is a simple thing that i havent figured out!
Anyone know why, my copy & paste in the terminal doesn't work....it's there, just not highlighted, I need to install Sun Java and can copy the command lines from the forum I just can't paste them into the terminal. Also is there a way to check that my Ubuntu download to my USB stick is error free?
I can't Copy, paste, select all, or find with my keyboard... pretty much all the commands that involve the Control key don't work. in firefox... the edit> copy, paste , etc commands are actually grayed out too.
