  1. [other] Re: Need to replace text with other text using SED or AWK or something

    Erm..Can't quite get it to work. I have no clue what I'm doing. What parts of your one liner do I need to replace? Do I replace "oldfile.txt" with /name/of/path/to/myfile.txt (with no quotes) or...
  2. [other] Need to replace text with other text using SED or AWK or something

    Hello, I have a SED command which prints the output of the command to a file. I want to either know how to convert this output to a string, so I can use it to replace the text in another file with...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu moves files instead of copying

    No progress, then?

    Shameless bump.

    Alright, does anyone know how to have an option to copy, move etc. in ubuntu like in kde? Without installing kde?

    Is the answer, drag and drop using...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: How do I send someone a file without email?

    Yeah, I must admit apache looks quite good.

    I can actually do port forwarding already. I'm not too bad with iptables, and i can find out my ip address with ifconfig.

    Well, that's certainly...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: How do I send someone a file without email?

    Hmm. MSN might be a good option. I believe it has limits on file size/type, though, and is pretty slow from what I remember of trying to send files with it.

    Direct connect? Never heard of it. ...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How do I send someone a file without email?

    Okay, I'll download filezilla. Bear in mind, that if my method above works or is capable of working with some modifications, my friend (who is FAR more retarded with computers than I am) only has to...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: How do I send someone a file without email?

    I don't quite remember what the program was called that I used, it was a while ago. It was freeware and it was similar to smartFTP or cuteFTP except it wasn't those. I remember it was very very...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: How do I send someone a file without email?

    Hmm. I was hoping for something without using third party websites etc. as well. So from what you're saying, the only way to transfer files from one computer to another without a third computer is...
  9. [ubuntu] How do I send someone a file without email?

    Okay, first of all, to Joe Sarcasm (in all his many variants)...

    I want to send someone a file. Might be small enough to send via email. Then again, it may not. However, I DO NOT WANT TO USE...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu moves files instead of copying

    Good luck coffeecat, maybe you'll find a solution.

    Maybe some more fancy links are in order, instead of the standard ones? Just an idea.

    "unsullied by Windows"...Hey, windows ALWAYS copies and...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu moves files instead of copying

    You get the same as me? WOO-HOO!

    I am also going to bed. See you tommorrow, perhaps?
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu moves files instead of copying

    Yeah, I can use fstab. I used ntfs-config because this computer is for someone who is useless with computers and I thought ntfs-config would make it easier for him. I shall try it without...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu moves files instead of copying

    Hmm. I just did what you did, make link, put it on the desktop. This computer is using ntfs-config to mount the disks though. Perhaps if I just do it manually with fstab, it won't behave in this...
  14. [ubuntu] Ubuntu moves files instead of copying

    Hello.

    My problem is not really that big a deal, but I have four partitions- windows xp, ubuntu, an ntfs data partition and a swap partition. When I navigate to /media/data and then drag a file...
  15. Poll: Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    Good idea. And it made me laugh.
  16. Poll: Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    Okay, I have gproftpd, a file on my hard drive at /home/file.txt and a chum.

    There are no special folders, or anything like that, that either I or my friend have made. Literally, I've done...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: What's the best way to make a folder invisible WITHOUT USING A DOT . PERIOD?

    Not a very big limitation, though. Certainly not when compared with my fstab editing capabilities anyway!
  18. [ubuntu] Re: What's the best way to make a folder invisible WITHOUT USING A DOT . PERIOD?

    Great bunch of replies there guys, I thought this thread would have died a miserable death overnight!

    McDuck, I think you may have won the suggestion contest. So, I just make a .hidden file on...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: What's the best way to make a folder invisible WITHOUT USING A DOT . PERIOD?

    Hmm. I think system volume information only turns up when you turn on system restore on a drive. I could just turn it off and the recycle bin on that drive I guess, but I don't really want to do...
  20. [ubuntu] What's the best way to make a folder invisible WITHOUT USING A DOT . PERIOD?

    Okay, I have an internal NTFS data partition which Windows just has to place "System volume information" and "Recycler" folders on. So, how do I make these invisible in Ubuntu without using a...
