I have downloaded the jdk-6u24-linux-i586.bin and gone through following steps. nuwan@nuwan-laptop:~/Downloads$ sudo chmod +x jdk-6u24-linux-i586.bin nuwan@nuwan-laptop:~/Downloads$ ./jdk-6u24-linux-i586.bin It works fine on me. These commands create a folder jdk1.6.0_24 in Downloads directory.
My Question is this. If I want to install packages manually.What is the best way to do it. Where should I put artifacts which generates after executing above commands. Another question, If I use sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk where does these downloaded packages are installed. I mean location. I have been using Ubuntu 9.10
If I download a .deb file then when I run dpkg all files install in the correct directories.But with a tar.bz2 file when I run tar xvjf it installs in its current directory. How can I make a tar.bz2 file install into the appropriate directory?

I have been unable to open my Downloads folder for 2 days now. I've tried everything. I can get into every other folder on my machine though. I also have 103GB free space on my machine. Is there perhaps a limit on the amount of data I can have per folder? I'm running 64bit Ubuntu.
I keep on downloading tar.gz files into my downloads folder and i cant do anything with them. what i need to do to install the file so i can use it? An example, i am trying to install Frets on Fire, and am failing bad.
There is some issue with the latest version of LinuxDC++ (version: 1.2.0~pre1~bzr Core version: 0.75). I have upgraded to the latest version a few days back from launchpad repos due to the frequent crashes and system hang-ups. My complete and incomplete downloads folder are same. While my download was going on, LinuxDC++ deleted all the files from the downloads folder.
After about half an hour of tweaking, I updated my database using updatedb, and found my files in ~/.dc++/Filelists/anantwqqwe.BMIU2NFCFXB7ERTSG62PRSQPRJIN63A56EEGO6Q . What does that supposed to mean and why its doing this way? This is the second time this has happened to me, the last time I was unable to locate the deleted files on my system and I suppose they were not there. I use 64-bit Ubuntu 10.10(maverick).
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 had installed this drive as a slave drive yesterday, and it had worked perfectly, mounted good, etc., etc.
Today, I fire up ol' trusty, and my slave drive doesn't show in either "Places," "System Monitor," or "Disk Usage Analyzer." It does, however, show up in BIOS and "Gparted Partition Editor." A mounting option isn't present in "Places" as it was yesterday.
If I need to manually mount it or whatever, would someone please list the steps I need to take to get my HD back?
My main harddrive is a Western Digital 160 Gb IDE and is listed as /dev/sda. My slave is a Seagate 80 Gb SATA and is listed as /dev/sdb
I would like to ask you how to mount audio cds in linux manually. Normally, when I insert disk into cd-rom, Gnome manages to open me a window with content of cd. Everything works ok, until I try to mount same cd through shell.
First error complaining about cd being read-only can be solved using -r arugment. But, second error wants me to specify filesystem, which I don't know of course. I heard that audio cds don't have any filesystem or something similar, but how is it possible to display it's content in Gnome?
I actually mean, I would like to be able to do same thing, but without desktop environment - only through shell.
In the linux machine we need to mount a folder names sever under apps folder with the user as steve. Also the steve user should have the permission to create the files in the folder. As of now, its mounted as root user.steve is in list of sudo users.
So I recently installed Lubuntu on my netbook and I have it all working except for one hitch - when I download something in Chromium (such as a .deb or a .odt file) when I click on the finished download in the bar at the bottom of Chromium it does not open the file in gdebi/abiword as it should. Also when I right click on a file and select "show in folder" it does not work...
Not sure if this is an issue with Chromium or LXDE/PCMan but I figured it couldn't hurt to post here asking about it.
Code: //192.168.0.242/websites /mnt/supercube cifs rw,user=XXX,pass=XXX,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,uid=XXX 0 0 But it doesn't auto mount with everything and disconnects whenever I suspend my computer. The only way to get it to mount is with Code: sudo mount -a and it mounts fine with no error.
Did lucid change the way it uses fstab or something? Obviously writing mount -a isn't a huge concern, but it kind of destroys the point of putting it in my fstab.
I have figured out manually setting the swap partition and setting "/" as the mount point for the primary partition during install. If during install, I want to create another partition to keep the OS separate from installed programs and such, to be able to do a clean install every 6 months and not loose everything (or anything) I have done prior.
I'm installing things in a new Red Hat server and saw that the /var folder is full (100%). I need this folder to have more space or another kind of solution because this server is going to be used as a print server.
Debian Lenny, kernel 2.6.26-2-686 I'm trying to manually mount my digital camera. Picasa recognizes the device and imports pictures. However, I'd like to access my device manually as there are small video files I'd like to retrieve. It's for a fujifilm Z33 WP digicam.

In Picasa...where it says "Select Device", it finds
USB PTP Class Camera@usb:
USB PTP Class Camera@usb:005,010
selecting either one of them can access the camera directly. How can I pinpoint my device and mount it using the regular mount /mnt/point/ /path/to/my/cam?
I'd like to be able to manually mount a USB stick in console (before X is started) and I can't seem to find a good way to do that. I'm not too smart about HAL and UDEV and I don't want to undo the auto mount feature when X is running but still be able to manually mount and unmount as necessary; like for installing patches and packages after an install or version upgrade. It seems like there should be an entry in /etc/fstab and a directory in /mnt or /media but danged if I can find something that points the way.
When I right-click on a file in my firefox downloads window and choose "open containing folder", it opens the folder in EasyTag. I tried both of the below "solutions" and logged out and logged back in to openSUSE and it still uses EasyTag! Is it because I need a restart or is it something else?
Neither one has worked yet... [URL] Open Containing Folder in Firefox under Linux
