I downloaded a 1.2GB file in Aptosid linux with Firefox and cannot locate the 'Download' directory where the file went by default - please show location, ta

Where is the default ' Downloads ' location?
I have downloaded a 1.2GB file and it shows in the Downloads window, but I am unable to locate it in the filesystem.
I forgot to make a Downloads directory in my home directory first, and have since made one.
Thanks
Denis

If you can find the downloads window (Keyboard shortcut Ctlr+Shift+Y in Linux) right clicking on the file entry should give an option to open the folder it is in.
If the option is greyed out it was probably only put in a temporary location and may have been deleted. You could try searching by name and date & size.

Note you could have looked at the prefs to try to figure out the location that would have been used, but not once you have reset it.
Does your distro not provide the newest releases of Firefox, you appear to be on Iceweasel 9, the standard Release of Firefox is now fx14.

    I have purchased an app from the app store and cannot seem to download it, the download statrs and then rapidly cuts out, it will not complete and seems to repeatedly go over the same few Mb.  I have previously downloaded large files and not had a problem with them.
    I have tried restarting, checked my hard disk (and repaired a sector of the disk) and checked my connection but this seems to have no effect.  I have also disabled virus protection and my firewall to see if this has an effect.  I have also downloaded other (free) applications to test it since then and some of these download but not the larger ones.  Has anybody else encountered this?  Does anyone know how to solve it?

    Can you download large files from other places apart from the App store, wondering if it is the App store or your internet connection.
    If it just the app store check this url http://www.apple.com/support/mac/app-store/contact/

    I have downloaded 10.5.8 combo several times and cannot get it to install because the disc won't mount or the installation gets hung up after restart. My current os is 10.5.1, and I am trying to upgrade to snow leopard. This is on a dual core macbook pro.

    You don't need to update to Leopard 10.5.8 unless you want to keep Leopard. Upgrading to Snow Leopard requires that your purchase the retail install disk.
    The following covers Leopard:
    Some general advice on updating:
    It is worth noting that it is an extreme rarity for updates to cause upsets to your system, as they have all been extensively beta-tested, but they may well reveal pre-existing ones, particularly those of which you may have been unaware. If you are actually aware of any glitches, make sure they are fixed before proceeding further.
    So before you do anything else:
    If you can, make a full backup first to an external hard disk. Ideally you should always have a bootable clone of your system that enables you to revert to the previous pre-update state.
    Turn off sleep mode for both screen and hard disk.
    Disconnect all peripherals except your keyboard and mouse.
    1. Repair Permissions (in Disk Utility)
    2. Verify the state of your hard disk using Disk Utility. If any faults are reported, restart from your install disk (holding down the C key), go to Disk Utility, and repair your startup disk. Restart again to get back to your startup disk.
    At least you can now be reasonably certain that your system does not contain any obvious faults that might cause an update/upgrade to fail.
    3. Download the correct version of the COMBO update from the Apple download site.
    The Combo updater of Leopard 10.5.8 can be found here:
    http://support.apple.com/downloads/Mac_OS_X_10_5_8_Combo_Update
    If you prefer to download updates via Software Update in the Apple menu (which would ensure that the correct version for your Mac was being downloaded), it is not recommended to allow SU to install major (or even minor) updates automatically. Set Software Update to just download the updater without immediately installing it. There is always the possibility that the combined download and install (which can be a lengthy process) might be interrupted by a power outage or your cat walking across the keyboard, and an interrupted install will almost certainly cause havoc. Once it is downloaded, you can install at a time that suits you. You should make a backup copy of the updater on a CD in case you ever need a reinstall.
    Full details about the 10.5.8 update here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3606
    More information on using Software Updater here:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TA24901?viewlocale=en_US
    Using the Combo updater ensures that all system files changed since the original 10.5.0 are included, and any that may have been missed out or subsequently damaged will be repaired. The Delta updater, although a temptingly smaller download, only takes you from the previous version to the new one, i.e. for example from 10.5.7 to 10.5.8. Software Update will generally download the Delta updater only. The preferable Combo updater needs to be downloaded from Apple's download site.
    Now proceed as follows:
    4. Close all applications and turn off energy saving and screensaver.
    5. Unplug all peripherals except your keyboard and mouse.
    6. Install the update/upgrade. Do not under any circumstances interrupt this procedure. Do not do anything else on your computer while it is installing. Be patient.
    7. When it ask for a restart to complete the installation, click restart. This can take longer than normal, there are probably thousands of files to overwrite and place in the correct location. Do nothing while this is going on.
    8. Once your Mac is awake, repair permissions again, and you should be good to go!
    If your Mac seems slightly sluggish or ‘different’, perform a second restart. It can’t hurt and is sometimes efficacious! In fact a second restart can be recommended.
    9. Open a few of your most used applications and check that all is OK. In this connection please remember that not all manufacturers of third party applications and plug-ins, add-ons, haxies etc, will have had time to do any necessary rewrites to their software to make them compliant with the latest version of your operating system. Give them a week or two while you regularly check their websites for updates.
    N.B. Do not attempt to install two different updates at the same time as each may have different routines and requirements. Follow the above recommendations for each update in turn.
    Lastly, Apple's own article on the subject of Software Update may also be useful reading:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106695
    [b]If you are updating Safari (or just have):[/b]
    Input Managers from third parties can do as much harm as good. They use a security loophole to reach right into your applications' code and change that code as the application starts up.  If you have installed an OS update and Safari is crashing, the very [i]first[/i] thing to do is clear out your InputManagers folders (both in your own Library and in the top-level /Library), log out and log back in, and try again.
    So, disable all third party add-ons before updating Safari, as they may not have been updated yet for the new version. Add them back one by one. If something goes awry, remove it again and check on the software manufacturer's website for news of an update to match your version of Safari.
    Most errors reported here after an update are due to an unrepaired or undetected inherent fault in the system, and/or a third party add-on.
    Additional tips on software installation here:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106692
    To reiterate, Input Managers reach right into an application and alter its code. This puts the behavior of the affected application outside the control and responsibility of its developers: a recipe for  problems. That's not to say that issues absolutely will ensue as a result of Input Managers, but you, as a user, must decide. If the functionality of a specific Input Manager or set thereof is really important to you, you may well choose to assume the associated risk.
    Again, the advice is to remove all Input Managers from the following directories:
    /Library/InputManagers
    ~/Library/InputManagers
    especially prior to system updates (they can always be added back one-by-one later).

  • Printing from web pages is excruciatingly slow with most recent upgrades of Firefox .Use an iMac and an HP officejet printer. Printer works fine with Safari and woodprocessed files, but not with Firefox and web pages.

    Printing from web pages is excruciatingly slow since downloading most recent upgrades of Firefox Mozilla. I have a desktop iMac, OS 10.6.8, and an HP officejet printer 4500 G510n. The printer works fine with the Safari Browser and with woodprocessed files, but not with Firefox and web pages. Help please! It used to print fast with earlier versions of Firefox.

    Hello and welcome to the Apple Discussions Forum.
    I have hardly any experience with HP printers but since your posting has not been replied to yet I thought I'd offer some assistance.
    With the printer status and ink levels working, it shows that you have a connection to the printer. So I would look at the issue being with the protocol being used for the print queue on the Mac.
    Since you have XP and Vista working, I would check the printer queue configuration on either box. In XP, go to the Properties and select Ports. Click the Configure Port tab to view the connection. If you are using RAW, then this is known as HP Jetdirect-Socket on OS X. So if you are not sure what protocol was used before I would create another printer queue, this time selecting IP > HP Jetdirect-Socket. Then enter your IP address and select the K5400dn from the Print Using menu.
    If this still fails to print then please reply. There may be limitations with adding the HP driver this way that I am not aware of. There may also be other driver options you can look at, such as HPIJS. If Greg Sahli reads this posting he has expert knowledge on this matter and will be able to offer some guidance.

  • I am making an album with Snapfish and would like to download ome of my photos from iphoto to snapfish, is this possible?

    I am making an album with Snapfish and would like to download some of my photos from iphoto to Snapfish, is this possible?

    You mean "upload"?
    There are many, many ways to access your files in iPhoto:   You can use any Open / Attach / Browse dialogue. On the left there's a Media heading, your pics can be accessed there. Command-Click for selecting multiple pics.
    (Note the above illustration is not a Finder Window. It's the dialogue you get when you go File -> Open)
    You can access the Library from the New Message Window in Mail:
    There's a similar option in Outlook and many, many other apps.  If you use Apple's Mail, Entourage, AOL or Eudora you can email from within iPhoto.
    If you use a Cocoa-based Browser such as Safari, you can drag the pics from the iPhoto Window to the Attach window in the browser.
    If you want to access the files with iPhoto not running:
    For users of 10.6 and later:  You can download a free Services component from MacOSXAutomation  which will give you access to the iPhoto Library from your Services Menu.
    Using the Services Preference Pane you can even create a keyboard shortcut for it.
    For Users of 10.4 and 10.5 Create a Media Browser using Automator (takes about 10 seconds) or use this free utility Karelia iMedia Browser
    Other options include:
    Drag and Drop: Drag a photo from the iPhoto Window to the desktop, there iPhoto will make a full-sized copy of the pic.
    File -> Export: Select the files in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export. The dialogue will give you various options, including altering the format, naming the files and changing the size. Again, producing a copy.
    Show File:  a. On iPhoto 09 and earlier:  Right- (or Control-) Click on a pic and in the resulting dialogue choose 'Show File'. A Finder window will pop open with the file already selected.    3.b.
    b: On iPhoto 11 and later: Select one of the affected photos in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Reveal in Finder -> Original. A Finder window will pop open with the file already selected.

  • Getting file from directory where class files are

    hi i want to load a properties file from the directory where my java program is (the class/jar files)
    somebody told me that i could use System.getProperty("user.dir"); but it would only work under windows; under linux it points elsewhere.
    how can i determine the directory where my program lies? sounds easy but i failed :(

    why to hell put it in the classpath? Because that way you don't have to ask the user where the hell he put the file.
    and if i would do so the next question: how can my
    program modify the classpath?It can't. And it doesn't need to.
    isn't there another way to determine the directory
    where the app is started from???If you mean the current, or working, directory, then yes there are several ways to determine that. But that directory need not be where the classes are actually stored. In fact the current directory doesn't even have to be in the classpath.
    Now, here's the best way to deal with properties files. (IMHO of course.) Put them in the classpath, in the same directory or jar file as your classes. Then to create a Properties object and load it from your properties file named e.g. "default.properties" you do this:Properties props = new Properties();
    props.load(this.getClass().getResourceAsStream("/default.properties"));

  • Upload text file to oracle table with checking and aggregation

    Hi Friends,
    I am new to ODI.  I have encountered a problem which is specific to ODI 11G (11.1.1.6.3) to upload text file to oracle table with checking and aggregation.  Would you please teach me how to implement the following requirement in ODI 11G?
    Input text file a:
    staffCode, staffCat, status, data
    input text file b:
    staffCodeStart, staffCodeEnd, staffCat
    temp output oracle table c:
    staffCat, data
    output oracle table d:
    staffCat, data
    order:
    a.staffCode, a.staffCat, a.status
    filter:
    a.status = ‘active’
    join:
    a left outerjoin b on a.staffCode between b.staffCodeStart and b.staffCodeEnd
    insert temp table c:
    c.staffCat = if b.staffCat is not null then b.staffCat else a.staffCat
    c.data = a.data
    insert table d:
    if c.staffCat between 99 and 1000 then d.staffCat = c.staffCat, d.data = sum(c.data)
    else d.staffCat = c.staffCat, d.data = LAST(c.data)
    Any help on fixing this is highly appreciated. Thanks!!
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Dear Santy,
    Many thanks for your prompt reply.  May I have more information about the LAST or SUM step?
    I was successful to create and run the following interfaces p and q
    1. Drag text file a to a newly created interface panel p
    2. Filter text file a : a.status = ‘active’
    3. Lookup text file a to text file b : a.staffCode between b.staffCodeStart and b.staffCodeEnd
    4. Drag oracle temp table c to interface panel p
    5. Set c.staffCat : CASE WHEN b.staffCat IS NULL THEN a.staffCat ELSE b.staffCat END
    6. Set c.data : a.data
    7. Drag oracle temp table c to a newly created interface panel q
    8. Drag oracle table d to interface panel q
    9. Set UK to d.staffCat
    10. Set Distinct Rows to table d
    11. Set d.staffCat = c.staffCat
    12. Set d.data = SUM(c.data)
    However, the interface q should be more than that:
    If c.staffCat is between 99 and 1000, then d.data = the last record c.data; else d.data = sum(c.data)
    Would you please teach me how to do the LAST or SUM steps?  Moreover, can interface p and interface q be combined to one interface and do not use the temp table c?  Millions thanks!
    Regards,
    Chris

    Hello, I have a Mac computer with NVIDIA 750M dedicated graphics card and monitor EIZO but the problem was there when I was working with Windows and Acer monitor. When I open a file from Camera Raw in PS this is smaller than the screen so I double-click with the tool "hand" to fit on the screen, but the picture loses sharpness and becomes blurry. If you magnify the image even only slightly with the tool "zoom" the picture comes back clear. In Camera Raw instead is always sharp. I solve the problem by turning off the graphics card in PS but often use plugin that need the graphics card otherwise the processing time is much longer. I ask for help.
    Thanks.

  • Acrobat Pro "save as" function in the file menu does not show the current directory of the file

    It forces me to navigates through my hard disk for this very straightforward thing in normal conditions. I precise: Acrobat is the only software reacting like that.

  • How to Save XML file in the same directory as the swf file automatically?

    Hi all,
    I'm really new here with flash and actionscript 3, so i might not make any sense, probably. Any input is greatly appreciated.
    So here's my problem, i'm trying to make a Top Score history for a flash game, which i load from an XML file. The problem comes to when i want to update the XML file. how do i do that automatically without prompting the user (ofcourse). I want it to be saved automatically to the same directory as the flash file.
    here's my code right now, but it prompts the user where it wants to be saved, which i don't want to happen:
    var xml:XML = <XML>
                        <topScoreList>
                        </topScoreList>
                  </XML>;
    for(var i:Number=0; i<10; i++)
         var Record:XML = <Record>
                             <score></score>
                             <playerName></playerName>
                        </Record>;
         Record.score.appendChild(topScores[i].toString()); //topScores[] -> class variable containing scores
         Record.playerName.appendChild(topNames[i].toString()); //topNames[] -> class variable containing names
         xml.topScoreList.appendChild(Record);
    var ba:ByteArray = new ByteArray();
    ba.writeUTFBytes(xml);
    var fr:FileReference = new FileReference();
    fr.save(ba, "topScoreList.xml");

    yeah that makes sense, actually - after reading a dozen more forums. It's really weird tho that flash doesn't have a Buffer writer, unlike other programming frameworks.
    But yeah, thanks. i'll start reading on flash.net.SharedObject, correct ? Thanks.
    Anyways, if anyone out there has a different input, will be greatly appreciated!!
