Unhappy Ubuntu places now longer stays showing


I have installed Unbuntu on recommendation from two users to get the USGS ISIS program to run on it when OTHER versions of Linux seems to have issuyes..not necessariliy LANY edition of Linux either ... imho after two full months of trying to get USGS and ASU to help give me honest geo-referenced and map-aligned data of all 10 bands each IR image has from Odyssey.. NasaView opens and gives individual bands..but...geo-referencing and map-alignment only ISIS can do.

I finally got it to work when two Ubuntu users got the main lib of ubuntu think certain old libraries are there when not. I think...worked anyhoo the ISIS commands worked...but now...the OUTPUT of the commands are INACCESSABILE !!!

https://isis.astrogeology.usgs.gov/I...ic,3202.0.html

The above topic is where you'll read about the two month attempt and also see the Ubuntu rescue.

But now the PLACE folders open for a VERY VERY short time about 2-3 seconds, if that, then shuts down again.

From the Home terminal I got this list

main2@main2:~$ dir
commands\ for\ isis\ activation\ and\ thmproc
Desktop
Documents
Downloads
examples.desktop
Music

I36978021RDR.cub
outputBand10.j2w
outputBand10.jp2
outputBand1.j2w
outputBand1.jp2
outputBand2.j2w
outputBand2.jp2
outputBand3.j2w
outputBand3.jp2
outputBand4.j2w
outputBand4.jp2
outputBand5.j2w
outputBand5.jp2
outputBand6.j2w
outputBand6.jp2
outputBand7.j2w
outputBand7.jp2
outputBand8.j2w
outputBand8.jp2
outputBand9.j2w
outputBand9.jp2


Pictures
print.prt
Public
Templates
Themis\ processing\ commands-tracie-usgs
ubuntu-grey-lisitng-their-problem
Ubuntu\ One
Videos
work1
main2@main2:~$

As you may guess correctly everything between Music and Pictures in the listing is THE stuff produced by the output of the ISIS program made FOR Linux systems. Which One? Well Suse 10 and above not supported anymore and there are others. So I don't know what to do.

I thought del meant delete in ANY language...guess not.

What's up and how can I delete these files from the Home folder at least so it STAYS OPEN?

Thank You in advance for any replies...especially helpful ones.

Bob

I don't exactly understand your problem, but to delete files, you can use "rm".

For example, if you want to remove "outputBand10.j2w", type:

Code:
rm outputBand10.j2w
If you don't have permission to do that for some reason, try using sudo to give you root access for the command:

Code:
sudo rm outputBand10.j2w

in addition to what lamouche said, if uneed to del a whloe dir, use this:

rm -rfv directory_name

r = recursive
f = whatever it means
v = verbose output

The f stands for "force". If you use it, then rm will not ask you "Are you sure you want to delete this file?" for each file being deleted.
