I did it in 8.04, my question is when I left (opposite) click the desktop CD/DVD icon and select Copy from the pop-up menu where does the extracted image end up.Its always worked well enough I never worried about it, but today I needed some copies of a DVD a coworker authored that had one of those lame "Stomper" labels stuck on. It was applied off center and made the disk so unbalanced it appeared to read at 1X or less I was expecting an option to save the image but didn't get one. Anyone know if its still on my hard drive somewhere so I can avoid the tedium of ripping it again?
I have some large image files that are 30 gig and more. I am running Ubuntu 9.10 whenever I try to copy one of these files to another drive I get a error saying the file is too large. I am trying to copy from an external Hard Drive or a slave drive does the same thing. I have a friend who has expressed the same issue. This must be a widespread bug.
I am pretty much a noob when it comes to Linux. But I desperately need to do exactly what the title of this thread says.I have this ISO file which is a bootable CD image. But instead of booting off of a CD, I want to boot from a USB flash drive. I understand that I can't simply just burn it with ImgBurn or whatever, and then just drag and drop the files and folder to a USB flash drive. Because hidden files, bootloader, etc. would not be visible and not copied. I know I'm in for some special software in order to copy every single byte from that ISO image to my USB flash drive.
I did try extracting the ISO with PeaZip (7-zip based) under Windows Vista, but that didn't work out very well. It resulted in a few files and folders, totaling in at about 2 KB, while the source ISO file is actually some 50 MB. WinRAR, on the other hand, would simply just create an empty folder where to put the files (no files created/extracted), flash before my eyes and call it a day ("complete").I have learned from other posters on other forums that there is this Unilx program/command called DD. How can I use DD to accomplish this task?
I just got a 2TB drive with the intention of backing up multiple Ubuntu machines to it. What would be the best way to do this, keeping ease of restoration in mind? Should I just copy each drive image to the BU drive, or use a utility like Back in Time?
I have 2 partitions on my hard disk1. sda1 is ext3 partitoins with MINT linux2. sda2 ntfs partitions with my files and movies I want to copy, make backup of my sda1 partitions and store it to file (image) in some folder in sda2.In windows I have made that many times with Acronis and ghost, but I dont know how to make it in MINT.Is there some manual that explain that.
i have installed linux (RHEL4) in a PC and have to do the same process for 150 PC's of same configurationIf i copy the image of the first PC(which i have installed)hard disk to other PCs ..will it works?Or I have to install each PC manually?What is the standard process to do this task.
I recently installed Linux to run a few Linux based tools on a disk images I have, and I can't seem to copy the disk image over to my ext3 partition.
The particular distibution I'm using is BackTrack 4 r2, which is Ubuntu based. I can't seem to find specifically which version of Ubuntu is being used. The disk image is 108GB. It is currently located on a NTFS partition on a SATA hard drive connected directly to the computer. The ext3 partition is located on a second SATA hard drive connected to the same computer. It has 200GB total. I do not remember exactly how much free space it had but "df -h" showed a lot more than 108GB. The computer has 4GB of RAM and I gave it 8GB of swap space.
At this point it has been running for more than 12 hours. This is far longer than I would expect it to take had I been copying the file under Windows. How ever I do not have much experience with Linux, so if it's supose to take this long please let me know. I am planning on letting it run until I wake up tomorrow.
"cp -v" hasn't been very verbose at all. The only sign I have that indicates the computer is still trying to do something is the HDD light on my chasis that has stayed lit this whole time.
After I burn the DVD image, I put the disc on the computer and boot. The installation screen appears, the acknowledgement screen appears, then the installation checks my system and gives me a yast window with an error about something related to URLs and repositories. I cannot continue with the installation.
I am 100% new at this and thought it would be as easy as installing ubuntu (which I installed on a laptop and works flawlessly).I am trying distros and opensuse is compatible with my video card right out of the box apparently, so that's why I chose it for my desktop.Do I need to copy the dvd image to the hard disk of the computer I want to install opensuse on, and use the dvd to boot as well?
I am trying to get the dd command to successfully copy a disk image to a remote system.Right now I am testing out the syntax by trying to copy the /dev/sda1 directory of the subject computer. The command syntax that I am using is the following:Code:dd if=/dev/sda1 ibs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror | (ssh 188.8.131.52 of=/roarchive/test obs=4096)The user account running this command is root, and the account does have key-based authentication between the source and destination computers. The command does not return any error messages, but when I check the directory on the destination system, the expected output is not there.
This isn't exactly a Linux question, because it also happens with the Windows version, but I've got a pdf file with a number of images in it. When I try to copy the image, it works except the pasted image is just a blank rectangle.I've tried this with The Gimp on Linux and Windows, Photoshop Elements on Windows, and some other programs. I get similar results from all of them. Sometimes the rectangle is transparent, sometimes black, but never the image I've selected. However the rectangle does appear to be the size of the selected image, so something is being picked up.
I have triedShotwellgThumbF-SpotNone of them has the possibility to define a shortcut which will move current picture to a defined folder.I want to get a collection of pictures to send to a friend. Before that I want to resize using imagemagick.Irfanview allows definition of locations for "Copy to" or "Move to" (F8 shows list of predefined locations, press 0-9 for copy. So effectively two key strokes). Does anyone know about an ubuntu image viewer that makes this possible with one key combination?
Greetings from Greece. I tried to install opensuse 11.3 in an empty disk . Unfortunately the installation progress stops in 88% and the message error says "error copy live image to the disk". I have burn two different cd but the result is always the same.Is it a hardware problem or the cd is not correct?I had the 11.2 version in the same pc without any problem for a long time.
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?
When playing dvd's, vob files and wmv files, the image comes with high contrast colors ,very intense red/green/blue. very dark too. I have vlc 1.1.4 installed, using ubuntu 10.10, libdvdcss2 installed. for the rest of the video formats it seems to work fine. any ideas on what should I start debugging?
I was given a forensic Image which I now know is a DD image of the drive (Vista) and am trying to mount the image or extract the image to another drive. I'm not sure of the extention type or if the image is a partition or the entire drive. I think it is the entire drive.
Is it possible to mount a DD image to a device. If I can't do that I just want to extract the files to run some programs against the drive. Can I view the files under Ubuntu or do I have to remove the drive and stick it into a Vista computer.
I purchased a second drive today and was hoping the command line would be something simple.
Or am I on the wrong track, should I be doing this all in a windows environment. The reason I picked ubuntu was because of the reporting tools.
I would like to change my startup image (usplash image). For that i change /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu_logo.png and /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu_logo16.png. Then the splash screen of shutdown screen changes .But booting screen doesnot change.
Whenever i try to download something i do not know where they are saved to. for example, i just tried to download the skype beta for ubuntu. the firefox download prompt pops up with the only option being "save file". i click save file and then the prompt closes and nothing happens.
I'm setting up a single stand-alone computer in my classroom to be used by my students at the school where I teach. I've installed Ubuntu, as it smashes Windoze out of the court every time.
I want the students to be able to log on to the computer using just one account: 'Student'. This computer will be attached to a printer so they can type up and print oOfice documents,web pages, etc. However, once they log out, I want any files they might have saved (such as a word processed document) to be removed/deleted from the account so that when another pupil logs on to the 'Student' account they start with a clean slate. I suppose you could call it a sort-of Kiosk account.
How can I get Ubuntu to clear any saved documents on log-out?
For various reasons, I have reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04 three times on my laptop. The 2nd time I reinstalled it, when I would connect to a wireless network, it would say connected but the network manager icon at the top panel said disconnected. What confused me is when I booted up during the 2nd install, it connected to my wireless without a problem. Is wireless info (saved networks, etc) saved in the home directory somewhere??
I didn't have the icon problem the first time, so I thought hmm, I have my stuff backed up, let's try it again except let's format everything this time. The third time I had no issues with the icon saying disconnected. My partitions are split with /root and /home. The first 2 times, I did not format home. The third time I did. Even though the first time I didn't have this issue, I couldn't understand why it popped up the 2nd time. Now that I formatted EVERYTHING, the issue isn't there.
AKA: 1st try - no issues - did not format home. 2nd try - icon says disconnected when connected - did not format home. 3rd try - no issues - formatted everything.
It's weird - every time I restart Ubuntu, my screen settings are at 1024x768@60Hz. When I change them to my preferred settings, this will completely destroy the order I like about my panel icons and it starts to suck. I use an Onboard Intel graphics card. Any advice on what to do?
When I go to user settings and try to add a new user, I get this error message: "This configuration could not be saved" You are not allowed to modify.. Even though i'm logged in as the admin. I'm running Ubuntu, the latest version.As of now, my account is labeled as "custom". I try to make it admin, yet it reverts back to custom.
I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 64, and when I change the CUPS-server via system->administration->printing->server->connect, the new list of network printers loads up correctly.But when I close the window and reopen it, the old CUPS-server is back, so it seems that the change isn't saved anywhere. Rebooting doesn't do anything.
