Ubuntu :: Saving Downloaded Install Files For Future Use

Feb 10, 2011

I just switched to a faster isp with monthly usage limits. When I install a program using Synaptic, where are the install files stored? I'd like to save them for future use. Also, I'm downloading Conky right now to monitor usage.

General :: Downloaded Files Saving Above And Behind The Panel Menubar?

Apr 26, 2011

I download a file to my laptop desktop, it saves above and behind the panel menubar (Applications / Places / System). As such, the files aren't easily accessible.How might I ensure that downloaded files are visible on the screen and not 100px above & behind it? Perhaps related, I've got a second monitor attached to the laptop (primary). It seems this second monitor's resolution is affecting where downloaded files are put...out of sight.

Primary laptop: Dell Vostro 1310. Resolution = 1280x800
Secondary monitor: Acer 19-inch LCD Flat Panel. Resolution = 1280x1024.

I've tried all the settings in Monitor Preferences to no avail. Searched Google without luck. Currently on Ubuntu 10.10 and the system is (according to Update Manager) up-to-date.

Ubuntu :: Can't Install Downloaded DEB Files?

Aug 2, 2011

Just installed Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit on an older Dell D610 laptop. Everything was running a little slow but all in all running fine except one thing - I downloaded the Chrome deb file and also the deb file from Moneydance. When I double-click on either of these deb files, it opens up the Ubuntu Software Center and shows an 'Install' button for the app. I click Install and then enter my root password, then nothing happens. A short while later the Install button turns from grayed out to clickable again. So I click it again, and it says that the deb file is not packaged correctly.

I've tried it with multiple deb files now and get the same thing. Installing directly through the Ubuntu Software Center works fine, but unortunately Chrome and Moneydance aren't in there (I prefer Chrome to Chromium). What could be causing this?

Also - due to the slowness of the Ubuntu install I did a clean install to Xubuntu and I like that much better and it is running perfectly except for this issue of not being able to install any 3rd-party downloaded apps.

General :: How To Install Downloaded Files - MKDir Command

Jan 11, 2010

"You'll probably want to operate from inside your home directory. If your user is (for example) username, your home directory will be /home/username/. For the rest of this section we will assume you have downloaded your zip file to /home/username/src. If you do not have a src directory, you can create it with the following "mkdir" (make directory) command:"

Where do the commands go? I cant make it work in terminal. How do I get back to "home" from where i am now? example /home/mydesktop/. I am working in mydesktop. I have downloaded some packages that pkcon search will not find, but when I try to install them using "synaptic" it cant find the packages i dl. So I found this tutorial.

"So, we have our source package in /home/username/src/.
Change to the /home/username/src/ directory with the "cd" (change directory) command like so: cd /home/username/src/
but I dont know where to write the commands.

Ubuntu Servers :: Set Permission For Future Public Files / Folders?

Jan 2, 2010

I just set up an VPS with ubuntu. I made a user1 and gave it ownership

chown -R user1 /home/www

This user also have been given all the root privileges (I know it is not recommended!)

The problem is that each time I make new site, and user1 wants to upload (through ftp) files to /home/www/newsite I need to redo the the above command in order to be enable user1 to upload. Not only this, I need to rework permissions (744 for folders and 644 for files), otherwise the newsite throws permission errors message.

May 18, 2010

I am considering buying a netbook and installing the netbook remix from a bootable USB. During the installation, does the installer give me the option to create a dual boot scenario and keep the windows 7 as a partition? If it does not, what is the best way to clone the windows 7 install and can I put it on a usb to boot and install from in the future?

Ubuntu Installation :: Downloading Applications For Future Install?

Nov 4, 2010

I'm going round everyone I know installing Ubuntu on their computers whether they like it or not, and I must say so far they all like it except. I have to spend 5 hours downloading and installing all the software they need to make their system run 'as good as windows'.

I really need a whole bunch of popular programmes to put on a disk and install as I go. I know Ubuntu saves the downloads in a repository on the hard drive, but looking at it I am sometimes at a loss as to which folders contain which downloads, then there is the problem of multiple folders for one programme etc.or point me in the direction of a zipped up file with all the programmes a normal user might need.

Ubuntu :: Saving/opening Files From Firefox?

Jun 2, 2010

I've been getting annoyed with the way that Firefox opens files for me. I used to have it so that they would come up with a window that asked whether I wished to save files onto the hard drive or simply open them. When choosing to Save, they would go to my Desktop. Because I mainly save files from my Uni website, they are generally .pdf files. N for some reason, they open in the Firefox window, so then I have to go to File, Save, then choose where I want to save it. It would be more efficient if it worked the way it did originally. How can I get the settings back to the way they were? I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and Firefox 3.0.19. Because I use a shared computer, I'm not sure whether the version of Firefox has been changed.

I use xfce4 battery plugin and there is the option to invoke a shutdown whn the batt. hits critical percentage, but I would like to be able to run something at the low percentage stage to save any open files in case the critical stage is reached. I have had no luck googling any solutions or potential solutions.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Not Saving Files To NTFS Correctly?

May 13, 2011

Not sure if I am doing this correctly, just the obvious way I guess. I have dual boot with Ubuntu 10.10 and Win7 x64. They are on their own partitions, Windows on NTFS and Ubuntu on ext4.

Every now and then when I am in my Ubuntu system, I will load/save files from the NTFS partition. So I mount the NTFS by just going on places and clicking on the drive.

This morning I loaded some video files and converted them to wav files in Kdenlive, saving them back to NTFS. I then right clicked on the Windows drive and un mounted it, no problem.

Re-booting into Windows I found that the files were not there! Well one of the files was, but it was corrupt and not complete.

Looking in Ubuntu, the files were not there either.

I have seen this behaviour in the past, but never thought anything of it, just that maybe I hadn't un-mounted the drive correctly, but this was not the case this time. Does Ubuntu have a /very/ delayed write to NTFS? I assumed that if it un-mounted correctly then everything had finished writing?

Ubuntu Networking :: NAS Saving Existing Files Fails?

Aug 26, 2010

I have a really nuisance problem. I have two NAS servers - different makes - both of which work perfectly under Windows XP. I can write new files, save existing files without error. Both servers have drives formatted to FAT32 - the only option - although the OS's are almost certainly an embedded Linux.Both units are recognized by Ubuntu 10.04 - and I can write new files to them both without problem (although the directory does not refresh - I have to reload it). I can also delete without problems. If I try and save over an existing file I get an error "Unexpected error: Invalid argument" - I presume the implied delete is failing but am not sure. New files also seem to be saved with the Read Only flag set.OK - I can work round the problem by deleting the files (that works OK) and saving them anew. Works fine - but a backup is impossible as any changed file will give rise to the error.I have tucked both drives into the hosts files in /etc - although I attach by IP address (which is fixed) anyway.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - OpenOffice Docx Files Freezes On Saving

Apr 12, 2011

I have to use and update many documents on a network share in my organization. I am using OpenOffice 3.2 (latest and Greatest). When I go to the document that I need via the network share, I can open up the document no problem at all but the minute I attempt to save it, it will freeze and I have to:

PHP Code:
pgrep soffice| xargs -i kill -9 {}

Kill it. To get it to work I have to save the document from a .docx format to a .doc format then all works well. Unfortunately, all of my coworkers use the latest and greatest of MS Office.

Ubuntu :: Moving Downloaded Files To Correct Folder?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm looking for a script or a bittorrent client which is able to move a file after downloading and placing it in a specific folder depending on the file type. E.g. moving a newly downloaded movie to "Videos" and an ISO-file to "Files".

I feel as if i have used a client with this functionality before but can't remember the name.

Since I at the moment use Transmission as my bittorrent client a script would also work since Transmission can run it after finishing the download.
