What does this say ?
Code:
des@des:~$ ls -la
Code:
des@des:~$ cd /home/des/.local/share/Trash/files
and then do following on the above path.
Code:
ls -la
DO NOT COMBINE THEM IN ONE LINE, THEY ARE DIFFERENT
Previously you had combined them on one line :-/

Kindly do me a favor, execute the wget -c for gparted command once again from here: des@des:~$

AND
when it reaches to 1%, press Ctrl with c, thus STOP it ! Then again do
ls -la there and present the output here.

Copy paste WHATEVER you do on the terminal and paste here.

Have I extracted the correct information that you wanted ?

Seems to already have the file as it says:
Quote:
The file is already fully retrieved; nothing to do.
Do I need to extract any other info because of that ?

I too have a GParted ISO downloaded through wget -c command in my home folder as you have done and I can see it lying there. And when I re-issued the command wget -c it said The file is already fully retrieved; nothing to do. !

Since from wget manual page:
Quote:
If there is a file named 'xyz' in the current directory, Wget will assume that it is the first portion of the remote file, and will ask the server to continue the retrieval from an offset equal to the length of the local file.
which is quite true in my case !

The a attached with ls -la shows hidden files.
and I am perplexed that why gparted was not shown in your home folder even through ls -la !

and the following two outputs of yours are giving me goosebumps now !

Here it is visible that gparted has *somehow* landed in Trash !!
Code:
des@des:~$ locate gparted
/home/des/.local/share/Trash/files/gparted-live-0.6.2-5.iso
/home/des/.local/share/Trash/files/gparted-live-0.6.2-5.iso.part
/home/des/.local/share/Trash/info/gparted-live-0.6.2-5.iso.part.trashinfo
/home/des/.local/share/Trash/info/gparted-live-0.6.2-5.iso.trashinfo
/usr/share/app-install/desktop/gparted.desktop
/usr/share/app-install/icons/gparted.png
/usr/share/locale-langpack/en_AU/LC_MESSAGES/gparted.mo
/usr/share/locale-langpack/en_CA/LC_MESSAGES/gparted.mo
/usr/share/locale-langpack/en_GB/LC_MESSAGES/gparted.mo
des@des:~$
But here that Gparted is not shown, even through ls -la ??????????
Where did it vanish ?
Code:
des@des:~$ cd /home/des/.local/share/Trash/files
des@des:~/.local/share/Trash/files$ ls -la
total 8
drwx------ 2 des des 4096 2010-10-13 16:39 .
drwx------ 5 des des 4096 2010-06-24 05:58 ..
des@des:~/.local/share/Trash/files$
Is the above output complete from your part ?
If yes, then I am helpless here

Since this thread has already got 81 replies, I doubt if some other member would be willing to read all the replies here and ...

So all I can suggest you is to create a new thread in the Linux-Newbie section titled:
Quote:
Unable to locate "GParted" after SUCCESSFULLY downloading it through "wget"
and present there the outputs of :
and make sure from now on you present all the outputs in seperate code tags.
To present a readable output, do not club the different outputs in one code tag:


http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...do=bbcode#code

do all this from :
Code:
des@des:~$
and I have stressed the newbie section for the new thread since most members visit that section, so chances of getting a problem solved are high there.

I hope that this story will helpmake some sense of it: -- My grand Daughters husband loaded UBUNTU for me and set up the dual boot. Had his own disk of gparted. to do the partitions

Later (when back in Mildura I attempted to download a fresh copy of gparted on this computer - well of course my ISP did it's usual trick and dropped out after 15% or so had loaded. I then put the incomplete gparted file in the trash and left the problem for another day. Anyway now I have emptied the trash using the "empty" command. - so that now a locate gparted command results are different as follows.

Code:
des@des:~$ locate gparted
/usr/share/app-install/desktop/gparted.desktop
/usr/share/app-install/icons/gparted.png
/usr/share/locale-langpack/en_AU/LC_MESSAGES/gparted.mo
/usr/share/locale-langpack/en_CA/LC_MESSAGES/gparted.mo
/usr/share/locale-langpack/en_GB/LC_MESSAGES/gparted.mo
des@des:~$
and here is the ls -la

Code:
des@des:~$ cd /home/des/.local/share/Trash/files
des@des:~/.local/share/Trash/files$ ls -le
ls: invalid option -- 'e'
Try `ls --help' for more information.
des@des:~/.local/share/Trash/files$ ls -la
total 200
drwx------ 2 des des   4096 2010-10-16 06:40 .
drwx------ 5 des des   4096 2010-06-24 05:58 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 des des 195280 2010-10-10 07:15 Screenshot.png
des@des:~/.local/share/Trash/files$
Does this shed any light? Thank you again for your incredible amount of work and patience. Don't go away.

BTW I will follow instructions for a new thread

Did you open that link in a new tab and then copied the address from the address bar and then pasted it on terminal with wget -c command ?

I just tested that link and it is working fine here !

Not sure - but I tried copying your code from an earlier post and that has worked better - as follows:

Just checking is that the result you wanted - so I'll use that in the new thread - Yes?
Did you read my addition in Post 83 ?

It is nice if it is working now but for the next time you should always do as per post 85, to avoid any problems.

and for the new thread also do mention at the beginning, the distribution and its version you are using to do all this

and when you present an output of a command it is always better to bold the command executed to make it more readable as follows:

When (6 months ago) I first started a download in UBUNTU , I'm sure it asked me where I wanted to store the file. And I have a sneaking suspicion that I instructed it to go to an area that Vista could read as well And that would be NTFS area. I'm searching now for a folder in the windows drives C: & D:

The reason I put them there is because UBUNTU reads may files quite easily from that HD area, But Vista does not read parts of the disk that are partitioned of for Linux.

So I'll have to sut down and go to Windows and see if there is a "Downloads" folder there

Does this sound to you like a possible cause ?

Thanks for all the good advice about bold font etc. I'll do that

I don't think what you have stated will effect wget -c. Because wget -c downloads the file in question only in the directory from where it was launched !

Did you read the reason for the Trash getting some of gparted - about half way through post 83 ? ?

It's all scary to me ? What was is that was frightening to you ?
