Ubuntu 5.04 Live CD retrieving files
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 9, 2005
I'm attempting to find files for emergency backup on a Sony Vaio FS series laptop using Ubuntu 5.04 Live CD. I don't know my way around Linux, though, so I cannot find the files.
If there is information I need to provide you, please ask. I'm not sure what you need to know in order to help.
Edit: The problem has been fixed. Please close this topic.

Download Ubuntu 8.10 in Small Files
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 4, 2010
As I worked at an institution, which has a policy to limit the amount of files downloaded from the Internet, I could not download ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso because the iso file-size beyond the limit. Every time I tried to download the file, on my browser, following error message appears: The request or reply is too large. I am wondering if there any site where I can download in some small files. Another thing: since I received the error using http protocol, I wonder if a ftp protocol will be able to circumvent the barrier. For your information, I particularly need Ubuntu 8.10 because I need to run certain software, which has been tested on the version. Thank you very much for your advice.
Where Exactly Does Ubuntu 9.10 First Store Downloaded .ISO and .EXE Files?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 26, 2010
I DID check out the similar threads and found them helpful. However, none of the threads seemed to answer my specific question. Whenever I download ANY kind of program with any extension on it, I can never locate where the h*** it is!! This leaves me with the feeling of being a complete dunce.
Only one time did I see a triangular shaped icon for an executable file on the desktop after the download had finished. Yet, nothing I tried could open, install, and run the "app." I do know how to click on an .iso link to download it. After that, though, I am completely confused about how to continue, since I can't even find it in any folder or file. Beginning to think there is no hope for me to get through or over the learning curve of this supposedly very user-friendly Linux distro.
Ubuntu 9.10 iso files
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 4, 2009
I downloaded the alternate ISO image for 9.10 and was going to install a little later, hopefully when the worst of bugs are fixed.
I am new to Ubuntu and have not been through upgrades before...
What I am not sure about is, does Ubuntu release updated versions of the ISO images on a regular basis?
If this is the case then I will re-download the latest before attempting the upgrade!

Where does Ubuntu store application files?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 16, 2009
Hi, my name is Marc, and I'm new to Ubuntu (Linux in general as a matter of fact). I'm used to Windows so I'm a bit confused because Linux is very different. So, my first question on this forum is the following:
Where does Ubuntu store application files? I just can't seem to locate them. I think they are in a folder called lib, under another one called usr but I'm not sure. Can anybody help me?

UUID: wrong values in Ubuntu /etc/fstab files
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 2, 2007
Here is a nuissance, a solution and some unanswered questions
Each device, say a partition /dev/hdaN, has a UUID label which might be retrieved as the name of the associated file in /dev/disk/bu-uuid directory. On the other hand, Ubuntu&Kubuntu identify the same device /dev/hdaN, by its UUID label, inside the /etc/fstab file. Now, assuming the abnormal situation when the two UUID strings differ, the boot process of Ubuntu&Kubuntu will hang when checking the file system:
How to check mark files on Ubuntu One
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 10, 2013
Hi, my main computer is a desktop with Ubuntu 10.04. I also have two laptops with Ubuntu 12.04. I just copied several updated files into a folder posted on Ubuntu One, using File Browser in Ubuntu 10.04. However, only two of the eight file icons have the green Check Mark on them. I haven't been able to find any documentation on how to check mark the other files.
My laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 is browsing the folder that I just updated on the desktop. I'd like to work with those updated files. However, it's as if I'm looking at two different directories. For instance, there is a file dated Jan. 2013 on the Laptop, that I want to edit, but on the desktop the file is dated June 2013. How do I put the Check Mark on the file, so that it updates, I suppose---I believe that's what the check mark indicates.
And so, for summary, the desktop with 10.04 is up to date, with files I just copied into the folder using File Browser. But only two of eight files have the Check Mark on the fil
