  1. [all variants] Re: Is there a utility to scan for non-Joliet file names?

    Thanks for all your advice.

    I realise now that I had been thinking about this too narrowly. I was looking to be able to check the file names once they had been copied to the NTFS volume, but of...
  2. [all variants] Re: Is there a utility to scan for non-Joliet file names?

    Ah. I see what you mean. The thing is that I do want to be able mount the volume in Linux with the non-Joliet filenames intact so that I can identify them and change them.
  3. [all variants] Re: Is there a utility to scan for non-Joliet file names?

    do you mean in the "mount" command? I can't find anything in the man page about this.
  4. [all variants] Re: Is there a utility to scan for non-Joliet file names?

    You mean copy the files first to an iso image and then to the ntfs volume from the iso image? That might not be a bad idea if I don't come up with anything else.
  5. [all variants] Re: Is there a utility to scan for non-Joliet file names?

    It's definitely Joliet I need. I got into trouble once before when I successfully copied files to an NTFS volume, but found that Windows got upset when I mounted the volume in it.

  6. [all variants] Is there a utility to scan for non-Joliet file names?

    Please can anyone just tell me the answer instead of questioning my motives?
  8. [all variants] Re: Create trash folder in root file system when home is somewhere else?

    I want a trash folder for the reason they were invented, to allow me to change my mind if I delete something by accident.

    In /home I have two directories. One is my home directory, which is...
  9. [all variants] Create trash folder in root file system when home is somewhere else?

    Hello,

    I have a very small encrypted home folder, but nearly all of my larger files I keep unencrypted on the root file system. This means that I need to create a trash folder for these other...

  12. [all variants] Network connections keeps getting dropped since 15.04

    Since upgrading to 15.04 my network connection keeps getting dropped. First the wifi connection gets dropped, so I plug in the ethernet cable. After a while the ethernet connection gets dropped, so I...
  13. [all variants] Both ethernet and wifi keep disconnecting after 15.04 upgrade

    When the ethernet stops working I find that unplugging the...
  14. Re: Is the ancient OpenOffice Linux-killing highlighting bug a wontfix?

    Thanks for the link. That's not a bad workaround. But it depends on being able to do without MS Word shading. Does anyone ever use that in the real world? If they don't then this will be a viable...
  15. Re: Is the ancient OpenOffice Linux-killing highlighting bug a wontfix?

    VTPoet:

    Thanks for the pointer to WPS Office. It looks interesting, but I'm wary because the Linux version is still in alpha and there is a long list of recently fixed serious on the community...

    How can I get music players such as Rhythmbox and Clementine to copy music to the SD card on my Android phone (a Galaxy S4 running Lollipop and connected by USB) instead of the internal storage? In...
  18. Thousands of built-in low quality fonts makes typography very hard to manage

    Isn't it time for Ubuntu to rethink the fonts that come with it? I have just done a clean install and I have over 1900 fonts (including the few installed with Wine). Most of these fonts are low...

  20. [ubuntu] Re: unidentified daily disk-intensive activity makes computer completely unusable

    The strange thing is that it doesn't happen at the same time every day, but it does happen every day. I will try leaving iotop running in a terminal and if I can swap the windows on my desktop after...
