Re: Print one page of pdf

If you're not in the directory containing the file, yes, of course. You might want to practice the basics of linux before going further. Thank You Flemur for your help, but I am once again up against the lack of knowledge wall. I am just going to have to sit down and teach myself the terminal synta...

Re: Print one page of pdf

Itried using "pdftk" but it says it can't find the file, The filr is on my desktop. I adapted this pdftk A=7p-aa map.pdf cat A7 output outfile_p7.pdtf You have a delimiter (in this case a space) in the file name, so it needs to be quoted or "escaped" - or better yet, rename the file. pdftk A="7p-aa...

Just make sure you show hidden files before you do the copy, assuming you want to retain your settings.
I unhide all hidden files as a matter of course with in a day or to of installing any OS. In AA they say "Keep it simple, stupid", and that is what I am going to do.

Again Thank You.

Re: Using the Terminal to Backup Home Dir.

What I don't understand is, given you're struggling with command line syntax and unix paths, why you want to backup using the command line when there are enough GUI applications out there that will do the job reasonably well. Next to flying to wherever you live and typing in the correctly modified ...

Re: Using the Terminal to Backup Home Dir.

My preference is the mksquashfs command. sudo mksquashfs /home /media/mute/toshipod-e/2018-05-03-home.sfs ### Duplicate /home as a compressed read-only mountable file image. + Needs no options at all to do the job. + Perfect since 2012. + Every live session Debian or Ubuntu or Mint etc etc keeps it...

Re: Can't move folder

It has been my experience, not to create system files, maybe create a folder on the desktop to put pictures in, but that's about it. Besides why would want to install a JAVA download to a folder you created, when you can do the install from downloads? And the install will create it own folder in the...

Re: finding a file

1) Open synaptic and use it's search function to search for openjdk - the various openjdk-8* packages will be marked if installed. 2) In the terminal apt policy openjdk-8* or apt-cache policy openjdk-8* or dpkg -l | grep openjdk-8 it appears I don't have it. Which begs two questions. 1. If I wanted...
