Cant figure out how to copy a single file (modem-diagnostics) from my thumb drive. I dont think I need to mount the USB drive because when I insert the usb drive into the notebook a window pops up and shows me the file. So I think its automounted. Please correct me if im wrong.
so under the command line I wanted to see the file on my usb drive the same way that I saw it in the pop up window by doing the following:
$ cd media/removable
So now Im in the removable directory and i type
and I see USB\ Drive
so I decided to type: $ cd USB\
and this I see >
I have no idea what that means?
Im just trying to look at the file in the USB directory.
So my three questions are:
1) what does it mean when you get the > ?
2) How can i change the directory to USB to look at the file "modem-diagnostics"?
3) How can I copy "modem-diagnostics" from my USB to usr/local/bin via the command lines? WHATS THE CORRECT SYNTAX!
FYI usr/local/bin is created already, its just waiting for the file "modem-diagnostics"
Also I tried a few ways to get it to work and have not been successful. I list my attempts below. Maybe someone can tell me what im doing wrong.
1) sudo cp /media/removable\USB\Drive/ modem-diagnostics .
2) sudo cp /media/removable/USB/Drive\ modem-diagnostics .
3) sudo cp /media/removable/USB/Drive\ modem-diagnostics
4) sudo cp /media/removable\ modem-diagnostics .
Thanks in Advance.
