Absolutely it will be compatible. I created a Kali Linux bootable USB from an ISO. Just download the ISO on your mac. Unzip it if it is zipped. Then open terminal (use spotlight search if you want). Plug in a USB (be sure to back up the usb if you have anything on it). Make sure the USB is blank by opening disk utility and hitting erase. In terminal type "...

The 32bit image doesn't work with UEFI (Unless you have Legacy support enabled). Also, try plugging the 3.0 stick into a 2.0 port and see if it works. – the_Seppi Dec 8 '15 at 12:08

@cas' comment in comments is more strict than gvfs-mount because it has also label option, thus avoiding possible complications better; I think Ubuntu use's the label option for stability so I doubt if gvfs-mount --mount is used at all by default mount -L MasiWeek /media/masi/MasiWeek

Go to "Edit Connections..." in the network icon menu. Find the wireless network name that you're connecting to, select it, and click the Edit button. In the Wi-Fi tab, look at Device field, and it'll be blank right now, meaning that any interface can use that wireless network. Use the pop-up arrow at the end of the Device field to select the mac address of ...

If the BIOS allows you to boot from a CD, you can boot a USB device by first booting with a plop boot disk You can create a bootable USB linux stick with enter link description here. Test the Ubuntu boot-stick on a known-good PC that can boot from USB first, then try it with the plop boot disk.

Not all laptops and PC's have the ability to boot from a USB device. If the option is not in the BIOS, it is not a feature that is supported. You may want to look into updating your BIOS, a more recent version may support USB booting.

If I understand you correctly, you want to install Windows 10 to a USB device and boot/run Windows from that device. This is not an Ubuntu question, but look at http://lifehacker.com/how-to-run-a-portable-version-of-windows-from-a-usb-dri-1565509124 for a method to allow this. Normally Windows does not run from USB, so never tried it myself.

There are several possible reasons for corruption. It can be that your USB stick is bad (e.g. there are some which lie about their size and corrupt the data at the end). It can be that your image writing software is bad. It seems (from various pages on the internet) that Universal USB installer can incorrectly write files to the USB stick so that was ...

I'm just wondering, why insist on creating the stick with the Mac, when it's probably just a couple of minutes to do it in W10? Or did it fail on the W10 machine too? If El Capitan refuses to give you access to the stick, a long shot is to install a VM and install Linux on the Mac and try from there. Edit: A friend of mine reported problems with an El ...

First make absolutely sure that the USB key is not mounted (if it is, unmount it). Next you should use sudo diskutil list To see if the USB key shows up. If it does, then the "problem" is that it isn't formatted. This is not actually a problem, you can proceed to use it. If the USB key does not show up, there may be driver or hardware problems.

Try using a charge-only USB adapter: https://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Universal-Charge-Only-Adapter-Android/dp/B00FA9GXKM or something like it. There are also other types of these charge-only adapters that will negotiate charge voltage, but not allow the two devices to connect. Or you could use a charge only usb cable to connect the device.

I found the solution to my problem thanks to some help from the Ubuntu facebook group. Basically i had to use the command sudo apt-get autoremove This is to remove packages installed by other packages which are no longer needed. This fixed every problem that I was having. I hope this helps anybody who is having this problem.

The equivalent to the Ubuntu GUI's mount action for removable media would be gvfs-mount -d device or gvfs-mount --device=device where device is a block device such as /dev/sdb. Note that this command is executed as the owner of the current desktop session, and will mount the device into a directory such as /media/<user>/<label> rather than to ...

Your script is not working because of a spelling error in the definition of PARTITION. Because of this, PARTITION is empty (while PARTION contains what you want) and /dev/$PARTITION becomes /dev/. Note that the variable $USER already contains the username, so no need to set it (unless you want to do the mounting from a different user).

Usually in Linux world all user's own data and configurations are placed in home directory /home/username/ For example Firefox save its profile data in /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/profilename.default So to backup or sync application data between computers you need to find where it stored in your home directory and just copy application's data ...

Your system is never idle. Install Wireshark (wireshark-gtk) and run it for a few seconds to see what the traffic is about. My guess is that you’ll see multicast broadcasts and other low-level chatter from other devices on your network.

I successfully made a bootable USB for Ubuntu 16.04 desktop, from my 2011 iMac, using UNetbootin. The Mac installer link is on that main page. Note that if you want to use it to install onto a Mac, there are further hoops to jump through. This howtogeek article should help.

contrary to what the other answers to this question suggest, the da200 adapter is not a displaylink device (unlike its predecessor, i believe). it is a "docking station" adapter that connects to the usb-c port, and provides hdmi, vga, ethernet, and usb ports. currently there seems to be problem with the graphics on this device. the laptop does see an ...

Have you tried this method? You also may need to format the usb drive as bootable first, use format fs=fat32 To answer your secondary question above, 'Linux box' is a computer with Linux already running

Make sure your BIOS supports booting from USB - all modern PCs have that, but some may have it disabled in BIOS Settings by default - make sure legacy USB is also on if there is such option. If that doesn't work or is not the case, then try a different tool to make the USB bootable. For example, 1/10 cases when I used Unetbootin it didn't work, but with ...

The file system of Ubuntu is not recognized by Windows. There are applications out there that will allow you to mount the Ext4 file system. Do NOT overwrite the MBR as that will prevent you from booting into Ubuntu.

You may want to try using the script described by Eli Billauer. The script worked for me up until recently. I am using a USB mouse and keyboard, with a desktop computer (no trackpad). I made a small modification (included ehci-pci interface in addition to xhci), so I'm going to post the exact script that I'm using here so you can compare with what Eli does. ...

You could try overwriting the MBR of the pendrive, with: sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/YOUR_DISK bs=512 count=1 You can check the device of YOUR_DISK with sudo fdisk -l. Notice that with this, you will lose the contents of the pendrive, but it should be detected again after that. You will have to format it again afterwards.

This seems to be an issue related to drivers not working starting with Ubuntu's 3.19.0-65 kernel. This is caused by a change made by Canonical whereby kernel and kernel driver signing is now being enforced when secure boot is enabled. During the update process, when a pop-up box asked me to review the secure boot settings, I left them as they were (enabled, ...

Allegedly, AMD support dropped off in 16.04 - and isn't due to return anytime soon. But neither of my machines have anything AMD, and I still had other problems. I'd be willing to bet your problem is not due to your hardware - but live booting/reinstalling an older distro will certainly help you deduce that. The first thing I would try, if I were you - is ...

it's me as well experiencing the same issue. Seems like an issue with the 3.19.0-65 kernel. After some mucking around I simply switched back to 3.19.0-64 by pressing ESC on boot to see GRUB's menu enter "Ubuntu options" select Kernel 3.19.0-64-generic tadaaa

It sounds like using lsusb shows that the drives are being detected, but you're not seeing them mounted on the desktop, or in Nautilus, correct? It looks like one drive has a corrupted partition, and the other has a series of bad blocks that looks like a possible head crash. If the data on these two drives is replaceable via a backup, or the data is not ...

I did a Google on "WD Caviar Green 2TB disable energy saving" and found a number of hits.

I suggest that you unload the driver for the internal device: sudo modprobe -r rtl8188ee And blacklist it: sudo -i echo "blacklist rtl8188ee" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf exit Any improvement? It may take a reboot.

To close this thread: I've booted 16.04 from DVD and directed the install process to an USB key of 15.9 GByte which was visible for the installer as sdb. The installation went fine on the 3rd try.

I had similar issue, don't know how to solve it permanently, but what I do to connect to the internet is going to System Settings -> Network -> Mobile Network[or sth like that, I don't have english software], then in the select you choose to add new connection proceed normally.

You can just point the installer to your usb drive and it should work. Exactly the same as a normal install. Notice that you can also create a live usb with persistence that can be used as an installer and to store your files and install packages.
