If you prefer to keep it old school, in a terminal: sudo mount /path/to/iso /path/to/mountpoint -o loop This, of course, will not allow you to edit the ISO as the other mentioned tools will, but if you just need to quickly get into one and pull a few files from it, works like a charm :-)

Brasero which comes with Ubuntu is able to create and open (to manipulate) ISOs. If you're looking for a way to mount an ISO so it's contents are available like a "drive" you may want to use simply Right Click the ISO and choose "Open With Archive Mounter" which will mount the ISO as a drive and you should see it listed under the Places menu. This all ...

There is no difference. Both are the same. But if you like to have the official CD, for keepsake, you can do so. Plus if you have a slow connection, or planning bulk deployment, getting the CD would be an idea. The price is $5 for a pack of 5, so you can pass it on. Or you can download it, and make your own CD, and pass it on.1 1Source:Ubuntu To ...

In Banshee's Edit->Preferences select the "Source Specific" tab, and then select "Audio CDs" under "Source". Under "Input Format" you should be able to select "Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC)".

You should install Ubuntu Minimal from the iso, you can download it here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD Then, once logged on the console, set the network, and install the desktop you need: for Ubuntu, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop on an old laptop, try Xubuntu, sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

You probably won't find a CD that will (naturally) support that size file, and overburning isn't recommended due to issues. I'd recommend using a DVD instead, or if that's not an option, a USB drive. EDIT: I'd emphasize trying to get a DVD... I personally had many issues with using my 8 GB USB drive. The first time I attempted a DVD install was fully ...

The alternate CD is actually a mini-apt repository. You can download the point release alternate CD and then insert it into the machine while it is booted up, after burning it. Then go to Software Center-> Software Sources and use the Add Volume button to add the CD. Image credit Jorge Castro This will work, but the CD does not contain every package ...

isoinfo can probably tell you if it has the right files to boot if you want quick and dirty. isoinfo -l -i is_it_bootable.iso will list the directory structure so you can check for files a live cd / bootable cd should have. isoinfo -d -i is_it_bootable.iso will tell you if the CD has an El Torito section. Ubuntu's live CD iso reports: Eltorito ...

Why don't you try and get in contact with the South Africa LoCo team http://ubuntu-za.org/ or subscribe to their mailing list https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-za They have a couple of release parties set up, I'd expect you could get a CD there http://ubuntu-za.org/news/2012/04/19/precise-pangolin-release-parties You can look up ...

I just made one for myself a few hours ago! I used RemasterSys. The steps to install are given on the page. After installing it, you can type the following commands on a terminal: sudo remastersys dist my-hd.iso to create a distributable image named my-hd.iso. You can burn this on a DVD and share it around. Just make sure you have removed crud like cached ...

You check the MD5SUM. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM. The iso at http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download is guaranteed by ubuntu to be bootable, a valid MD5SUM therefore asserts that the iso is bootable.

For Ubuntu, try dvdisaster for data cd's and dvd's. Really good if you like graphical tools. It's tricky to use with commercial movie dvd's, though. You'll have to open the dvd in Totem once first to "authenticate" the drive. After that, it works well. You also have ddrescue for the terminal. I have used both, and they are good. Once you have the file on ...

Your prompt says: Peter@ubuntu:~$ The part between : and $ is: ~ That represents the folder you're currently in. ~ is shorthand for your home folder (/home/Peter). See this section of the Ubuntu community documentation for more information about abbreviations in directory names, and related concepts. You ran the command cd Rubyscript. The folder name ...

Besides a DVD, you have several other options. Super Grub2 disk. Burn the beta5 (or probably any later version) to a CD, and then put the ISO on a flash drive or something in a directory called /boot-isos/. Boot SG2D and select detect loop bootable isos. (Note that SG2D only searches drives for loop bootable ISOs that were detected when SG2D was booted, ...

A / at the end of the name of a directory/folder is optional. Most of the time, including or omitting the final slash in a directory name does not change the effect of a command. So cd ../ is equivalent to cd ... Paths that don't start with a / are relative paths; they are resolved relative to the current directory. Every directory has to special entries: ...

I stopped burning a CD (or DVD) for ISO files about 2 years ago. A cheap 2GB Flash USB drive is 3-4 times faster for installs, and can be repeatedly reused (for later releases).

find . -type d -exec bash -c "cd '{}' && pwd" \; Swap pwd for your script. And . for the root directory name, if it's not the "current" directory. You have to wrap the exec clause in bash -c "..." because of the way -exec works. cd doesn't exist in its limited environment, but as you can see by running the above command, when you bring in bash to ...

Well, rhythmbox itself is able to rip CDs and get album data from the MusicBrainz database. If you insert a CD, a CD icon appears in the Rhythmbox's side bar at the left. Right click it and choose "Extract to library". Make sure to have the format set to the one you want (probably MP3): Edit -> Preferences -> Music -> Preferred Format.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick should have what you need to install ubuntu. Your EEE should have a recovery partition, so if you want to keep that option you should take care when installing ubuntu not to overwrite it.

It got a little hard to use before 10.04 came out. In older versions the option to rip to ISO existed. Not anymore. I strongly suggest using AcetoineISO for that it is like Daemon Tools in Windows but better, you can convert image formats to ISO, mount them in special ways, etc... Any way if you still want to use it, when creating the new image rename .toc ...
