comment Invalid Partition Table
I guess your problem is the same as the question you cited. If you have access to another Linux machine try the dd command mentioned there.

Also to be free of the LANG variable setting, one can do: iconv -f WINDOWS-1256 -t UTF-8 in.txt > out.txt which I tested and worked. So it may be a good idea to edit your command like this.

Thanks! The second command (the one using iconv) worked. But the first one (using recode) didn't work correctly and the output was still gibberish. Edit your answer to only include the iconv command and I will mark it as the answer.

comment Ubuntu Freezes when Switching to Full-screen VirtualBox VM
@markkirby I doubt that question is related to my issue. That question is for VB-4.3.16 and on a Windows host. Also, the mini-toolbar is disabled in my situation and still the problem exists. Like I said, I'm a regular VB user (almost everyday in full-screen mode) and I had no issues with this VM until this morning.

comment Ubuntu Freezes when Switching to Full-screen VirtualBox VM
@markkirby After a clean boot, there is only one instance of compiz. Running VB itself doesn't invoke another instance. Even starting up the Win-7 VM in windowed-mode didn't invoke another compiz. But then I tried switching to full-screen mode and the system froze! I didn't had a chance to check the processes list.

@markkirby Yes, my CPU is a 1st generation Intel Core i7, and Intel virtualization tech is enabled in the BIOS.

comment Convert Text File Encoding
Gedit can't fix the problem. Although Gedit doesn't show an encoding error for my file, even when it does it can't fix it. I've also tried "save as" with UTF-8 encoding in Gedit, but it doesn't fix the problem.

Actually it doesn't answer the question! I read the details in the referenced post, and it's clear that Gaupol does nothing about the encoding problem and is just a subtitle editor! The post states that to fix encoding problems, one should use iconv!
