Ubuntu One :: Drop Box - File Sync In Progress

May 13, 2011

I thought I would give Ubuntu One a try, even though I have used DropBox for ages. I think it is all set up ok, yet the box is open and it says along the top:
Using 102.6 MB of 2.0 GB (5%)
File sync in progress......
It has said that for 5 hours now.....is it actually doing anything? I have closed it a couple of times, and opened it, and it goes right back to the same thing. What is more weird is there are no sent / receive lights flashing on my Modem either.

General :: Copy File In GNU With Progress Bar And Rate Limiting?

Jun 22, 2010

Is there any good tool in GNU/Linux that copy files like cp, but also shows progress and limits speed (and changes limit without interruption) like pv?

Prototype: find source_directory | cpio -H newc -o | pv -s `du -bs source_directory/ | awk '{print $1}'` | (cd /destination/directory && cpio -di)

Also rsync -aP source_directory /destionation/directory/, but this shows progress bars individually and can't change rate after started. Or may be I should just write a wrapper for pv/cpio? Done.

Sep 15, 2010

Is there a clever way to monitor the progress (as percentage or hash) of copying a large file (using pv could be an option)?Like monitoring the progress of a copy command such as this:Code:cp linux.iso /tmp/

I am having a problem in Amarok. Recently I am using the following version of the software:

Code:Amarok Version 2.2.0 Using KDE 4.3.2 (KDE 4.3.2) The problem is that the seek bar is not working.Whenever I play an audio file the seek bar advances to show the progress.

Debian :: Drag & Drop File On Bash Script?

Jul 29, 2011

On Windows, I can drop file on batch script file, then dropped file is accepted as script parameter and script is automatically executed. Trying the same in Nautilus it seems like not possible.Is there some other way of using this approach in Debian?I hope it's clear what I'm after - I don't want to write Nautilus scripts as workaround and want to avoid: - opening terminal - cd to bash script - type script name andmeter file then executeinstead I would like already mentioned, drop filename expected as parameter to bash script, and then script to execute automatically.

Networking :: Large File Transfers Start Fas Then Drop To A Crawl?

Jul 19, 2010

I need to transfer 330G of data from a hard drive in my workstation to my NAS device. The entire network is gigabit and being run with new HP procurve switches. All machines have static IP addresses. The NAS is a Buffalo Terastation PRO which has the latest firmware, is set to jumbo frames, and has just been upgraded with 4 brand new 500G drives giving us a 1.4TB raid 5 setup. My workstation is a dual Quad core xeon box running on an Intel S5000XVN board with 8G of ram. My OS is Ubuntu 10.04 x64 running on a pair of Intel X25 SSDs in a raid mirror. The data drive is a 500G SATA drive connected to my onboard controller. The file system on the SATA drive is XFS. This problem was ongoing before I got my new workstation, before we had the GB switches, and before the NAS got new drives. When I transfer a small file or folder (less than 500M) it reaches speeds of 10-11 MB/sec. When I transfer a file or folder larger than that the speed slows to a crawl (less than 2MB/sec). It has always been this way with this NAS. Changing to jumbo frames speeds up the small transfers but makes little difference in the big ones. I verified with HP that the switches are jumbo frame capable.

Server :: Setup Apache2 To Drop A Core File When It Crashes?

Jun 1, 2010

I'm trying to setup apache2 to drop a core file when it crashes. I know that you need to set the CoreDumpDirectory directive in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf and run "ulimit -c unlimited" from the command line (and restart apache after the ulimit command). But, on a reboot, even though the output of "ulimit -a" shows unlimited, apache2 will not create a core dump file unliess you set ulimit -c unlimited again and restart apache2. There must be a way to configure apache2.conf or something so that ulimit -c unlimited is set prior to apache2 starting, no?

Ubuntu :: Format External Drive - Copy The Entire Home File Be Drag And Drop

Jun 8, 2010

I have an 500GB Iomega external drive connected to my iMac and used for the Mac Time Machine back-ups. I want to put a small partition on there that I can use to back-up my Ubuntu files which are on my laptop. I thought that I would be able to just copy the entire Home file on Ubuntu to this drive be drag and drop but this does not work. I get a notice to inform me that I do not have permission to create file there. I can however move files in the other direction (from the external drive to Ubuntu on the laptop. I assume this is because the external drive was formatted for Mac and I hope the problem will be solved if I could format a part of the drive in ext4 to accommodate the linux files.

Ubuntu :: Clear List Of Recently Opened Files In 'Location' Drop-down Box In File-Open?

Apr 13, 2011

I realise KPDF is quite old now but as this issue may recur when I move to a newer distro (well, newer than Hardy) with Okular I thought I'd better ask.I use Gnome, but prefer KPDF to evince when viewing PDF files. However, KPDF's "Open Recent" list behaves very oddly - there's no apparent way to clear it, and items which were on the list one day aren't on it another day (coinciding with old items reappearing on the list).

Is there any way to clear this list?Similarly, is there any way to clear the list of recently opened files in the "Location" drop-down box in File-Open? (which also seems to mysteriously lose list items inbetween reboots).

Ubuntu One :: Sync Chewing Up CPU Cycles - Using From 50-80% Long After Any Sync-able Files

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Sync Audio On Already Badly Out Of Sync Video?

Jul 9, 2011

Audio sync method. "Stretches/squeezes" the audio stream to match the timestamps, the parameter is the maximum samples per second by which the audio is changed. -async 1 is a special case where only the start of the audio stream is corrected without any later correction.Searching the net makes one believe that this command is just some sort of magic.People just put it in the line and it just works. Isn't that nice?

It says nothing about how to change the TIME the audio starts syncing. Like do I want it to start 5 seconds delayed? Or what about 5 seconds sooner?What if the audio gets more out of sync as the video goes on? Can I slip it a little at a time? What? No magic?No one mentions a file that already has badly synced audio.So what -async 1 really does is simply start the audio at the beginning of the file. LIKE AS IF THAT ISN'T STANDARD PROCEDURE?So what is the exact solution to syncing a messed up video? And why can't it just do the proper "timestamp" sync in the first place?No docs, no info and you are left out in the cold.

General :: Sony PSP File Transfer Inaccurate Transfer Progress?

Jan 1, 2010

Having a bit of a issue with Debian Squeeze and transferring files to the Sony PSP..Hook up PSP to USB port and Debian mounts it..I go to drag a 125 meg mp4 to video folder..Copy windows takes about 10 seconds to transfer it..Exit USB mode and there is no video there. Go back into USB mode and look at video folder on the PSP memory stick and there is no video..It vanished. From another after copy progress closed I right clicked PSP and unmounted it..

It error-ed saying device was busy and could not unmount..Looking at light on PSP i see memory stick is still being written to..i wait for light to stop flashing..About a minute or so..Then am able to unmount it..Go to PSP video and theres the video ready to be watched. Debian isnt accurately showing the copy progress...Its showing complete when it isnt..I have to watch the light on PSP to know when it is truly finished.

Ubuntu One :: Can't Connect For File Sync / Enable This?

Jul 27, 2010

I've been happily using Ubuntu One for a few weeks now, synching some files and notes.

Today I inadvertently clicked another folder to 'synchronise with Ubuntu One'. This was a 500mb folder containing work and personal files which I'm not ready to rely on the cloud for.

I must admit I panicked a bit as I attempted to stop the synch. I deleted the entire folder (got it backed up on an external hd) and the synch stopped. I then logged in to the U-One website and deleted the folders and files it had uploaded by that point.

When I restored the folder from the ext hd it started to synch again. This time I removed my machine from the U-One preferences and eventually cancelled my account.

I have now restored that folder under a slightly different name so it doesn't try and synch it.

Meanwhile I've re-started my U-One account and have added my machine so it appears on the webpage. I've uploaded a file via the website. I've also been able to successfully synch Tomboy notes in both directions.

However, I can't synch files with my Home/Ubuntu One folder. I've attached screengrabs of the three tabs in U-One Preferences which show 'disconnected'. If I click 'connect' on the Devices tab, it simply greys out and nothing else happens.

Files in my Home/Ubuntu One folder all have the Unsynchronized emblem against them (a cloud with a cross in a red circle). code...

Ubuntu One :: Ubuntuone File Sync Overloading CPU

May 5, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04 I find that if I launch ubuntuone my machine immediately slows to a crawl and there is intense hard drive activity.This persists for hours. Only solution so far is to close ubuntuone and remove it from list of startup applications. I have made no changes to the files marked for ubuntuone syncing, and everything worked fine in 10.10.

Ubuntu One :: Repeated Sync Of Nonexistent File

Sep 1, 2011

U1 is trying to sync a file which doesn't exist on any of the devices attached to the account nor in the cloud folder. I've tried using U1sdtool to stop it, including the following commands:

I've also tried actually creating a file of the same name that it keeps trying to sync in the hopes that it will latch onto that one instead, but no go. I tried deleting that file, but no go. It constantly loops through the same nonexistent file, over and over and over and over and over...

It also only does this on one device. It does not do that on the other devices.

And, yes, I've done u1sdtool --waiting, and there is the nonexistent file, on the list, with all of the real files that actually do need to be synced backed up behind it.

File sync doesn't not appear to be working and my logs are filled with this error:

"Connection to the other side was lost in a non-clean fashion."

The sync daemon after awhile will take up 1.3gb of memory and will peg one of the processors.

I also get connection errors for the control panel app.

I'm on Ubuntu 11.04 64bit.

OpenSUSE :: Sync Pim Data With Palm Treo 680 Via Bluetooth - Jpilot Sync Suddenly Broken

Oct 24, 2010

I use jpilot on opensuse 11.3 64bit to sync pim data with my Palm Treo 680 via bluetooth. This worked fine until today. Now I get the following error message when I try to sync: Syncing on device bt: Press the HotSync button now dlp_ReadSysInfo error Exiting with status YNC_ERROR_PI_CONNECT Finished.

The last successfull sync was on the 20th October and today is the 24th October. I did not change any settings in jpilot or on my palm device. So I guess there must have been an update of opensuse which causes this error. But I do not now how to look up the updates during this period or how to undo them. Was there an update between the 20th and the 24th Oktober, which might affect either jpilot or bluetooth functionality?

Ubuntu :: File-Sync With Unison To A Password-protected Share?

May 11, 2011

Been thinking about a new backup-strategy for my family and me. In our house is an Ubuntu Server (10.10) and NAS (Zyxel NSA210). Now I thought I'd create a Cron Tab entry on all machines which will sync specific folders automatically to either the NAS or a specific backup drive in the server. So now the question is: "How do I do that without seriously compromising each family members privacy by making their backed up files available to everyone in the house?" So in essence I'd like to sync/back up the files to a password protected share for each family member. But this process should still be done automatically every few minutes or so without them having to enter any password at all as their specific password is stored locally.

General :: Real-time Sync File Between Machines?

Jul 15, 2010

I have a few servers that are exposed to the internet. When someone tried to brute force hack in to the ssh, ossec adds their IP to the hosts.deny. Then the hacker (read: script kiddie) moves to the next IP up the line and hits my next server, etc, etc.

I end up getting 20 emails for all the servers that they hit.

My question, is there anyway to sync the hosts.deny file across multiple servers so that if they are locked out of one, they are locked out of all?

Ubuntu :: Display Progress Bar Using Cp (if Possible Mv Also)

May 16, 2010

A quick google search gave me a possible answer at this post: [URL] However, this isn't my question exactly. It sort of is, but the answer is not correct for me. I'm wondering how to show progress of a cp or mv command. The man page says -v should do it, but it seems it doesn't show any progress at all. Is it possible to show progress info with cp or mv? Or, is there a different command I could use that would show a progress bar. I know for example scp will show a progress bar, but that is for local-->remote or visa versa, but I'm trying to copy locally.
