yes I read that and also saw that when you again issued locate command you got this:
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
This is frightening since wget is saying that gparted download has been complete but still it is not visible anywhere !

When I issue the locate command on my system I see this and you are also supposed to see something like this if gparted is sitting somewhere on your system.
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> locate gparted
/home/anisha/gparted-live-0.6.3-3.iso
/home/anisha/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso
/home/anisha/tarBalls/gparted-live-0.6.3-3.iso

Good Grief!!!!

Page SEVEN - - -

Seven stands for perfection or completeness. What lessons have I learned from these seven pages, Perseverance, a lot about code, a lot about Forum Manners, that there are always questions but not always answers That I know nothing about the opposite gender That I know even less about LINUX. That life can hold some nice surprises That I have a problem with big feet getting stuck in my mouth That meeting new people and enjoying their camaraderie can be a wonderful treat. That Linux is a great program and demonstrates what people working together can accomplish.

Why don't you read this page : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...do=editoptions

and set the replies to 50 per page and click the save changes button ??? That way you will see only 2 pages like I am seeing now !

...as it is about 120MB in size. Move and rename: 'mv "~/download?use_mirror=aarnet" ~/Downloads/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso', then check if it is an ISO: 'file ~/Downloads/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso'. As to the naming wget doesn't do redirections in filenames so next time you encounter some situation like this you could 'wget -a ~/Downloads/wget.log http://sourceforge.net/projects/gparted/files/gparted-live-stable/0.6.4-1/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso/download?use_mirror=aarnet -O ~/Downloads/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso' which basically gets you two things: all actions get appended to the logfile "~/Downloads/wget.log" to read and start troubleshooting with and output redirection to a named file.

Thank you unSpawn for this response - You are however talking to a newbie and all of the code that I have generated has been under the help and guidance of Anishakaul, who has made me work and taught me much. So I have received great help from this forum. I am hoping that Anishakaul will help me understand your comments.

The problem started with not being able to download gparted at all due to my ISP drop-outs So I had to use a library wireless set up (still with my computer). This was apparently successful until I got home and could not find the file. Now if your input solves that riddle (as it seems to from my newbie position) your help will be counted as mammoth. So thank you to the extreme in anticipation.

Anisha, I am postponing the new thread until you have chance to decipher unSpawn's comments and then tell me what I need to do.

I have also sent an email off to SourceForge, to see if they can shed any light

Anyway the email was returned "wrong Address" so the email address in their "contact us" section is incorrect

Not necessary. The size of your "download?use_mirror=aarnet" download is 122947584 bytes which matches the target. Running 'md5sum "download?use_mirror=aarnet";' should return the hash 925620fbfc025abe64500991e2ad73d8. If it does then the ISO download is complete and you can move it to a usable name and location with 'mv "~/download?use_mirror=aarnet" ~/Downloads/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso;'. Single quotes demarcate the commands to use from plain text, just don't forget to use the double quotes where I added them.

I've found the file ok by using Ubuntu's search button. Then it got renamed as per post from Spawn. But I can't quite follow the instructions to check if it is an ISO or no.

The result of the command Locate gparted Now is;-

Code:
des@des:~$ locate gparted
/home/des/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso
/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:~$

Should I put all these files into one folder ? - do they all Need to go onto the CD ? Are all the files here that are needed ?

Run 'file /home/des/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso'. It should return at least "ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data". All good. Now just burn /home/des/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso using your favorite CD-burning tool.

I hope you are able to follow the above post of unSpawn.

file is the name of a command. This command returns the "type" of the file in question.

e.g.
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> file gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso
gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso: ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data 'GParted-live                   ' (bootable)

You have forgotten the word "shut" there ! Have you ? and you can add that proverb to your signature from here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...=editsignature

and then it will appear at bottom of every post of yours and you won't have to write it again and again

Thank you, now it makes sense - result is:

Code:
des@des:~$ file gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso
gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso: # ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data 'GParted-live                   ' (bootable)
des@des:~$

I guess the word 'shut' is a matter of choice, I prefer to leave it out thanks for the address, I know I've seen the option some-place but didn't remember where. So you have been helpful as usual.

Now I think it is the time to have a grand party, this is the longest thread I have ever followed which is about to get marked solved.

This : /home/des/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso is the only file you have to burn as an IMAGE to a CD and then boot from it for using it.

and IMO you can now safely remove the following other files of gparted: See UnSpawn's post below:
Code:
/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
<removed wrong-information>

and for knowing more about commands you can execute :
man command_name

e.g.
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> man file
Man: find all matching manual pages
 * file (1)
   file (n)
   file (1p)
Man: What manual page do you want?
Man:
But I don't think that Ubuntu has the manual pages installed by default

You cannot delete your posts and it doesn't really matter . <removed wrong-information> OR if you are so concerned you can click the REPORT button of that post and ask the moderators to delete it.

Content deletion is something we'd like to avoid at LQ even if it is due to fat fingering the reply button or network-induced.

That would be the best option.

If files are part of a package then manually removing files will result in b0rken packages.
It would be best to use available package management tools instead.
Like 'aptitude remove –purge gparted' or 'apt-get autoremove gparted'.
