Kiba-Dock in Ubuntu

I'll make a quick post here, so that everyone can have a nice and fun dock in their desktops. Before I begin, I must let you know that you must have Beryl + XGL or AIGL working in your Linux, for this to work. Look at this:

Ohh, one more thing you should know, with this dock you can play with the icons, and they'll fly all over your desktop.

In order to get this going you write the following lines:

sudo apt-get remove --purge kiba-dock
sudo aptitude remove automake1.4
sudo aptitude install automake1.9 build-essential cvs libpango1.0-dev libgtk2.0-dev libgconf2-dev libglitz-glx-dev librsvg2-dev checkinstall libglade2-dev
wget http://usuarios.lycos.es/abrahamtamayo/kiba-dock-0.1.tar.bz2
tar -xf kiba-dock-0.1.tar.bz2
cd kiba-dock
make install-schemas
sudo -s
make install
rm kiba-dock-0.1.tar.bz2

Now all that's left it's adding it to the programs on start up, to do this, we go to System/Preferences/Sessions/Startup Programs and add kiba-dock

Mounting .iso .bin .nrg .cue .dmf and .img in Linux

Ok, let's get started. Today's topic will be managing disk images on Linux. Let's see what we got:

First of all: Mounting Images:

  • ISO:
    1. sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop archive.iso /media/image
Where /media/image is a directory created especially for this.

  • BIN AND CUE: Download bchunk from here
    1. In order yo do this we must convert our bin or cue images to iso, to do this we need bchunk.
    2. sudo apt-get install bchunk
    3. When finished, we must convert our images with this:
    4. bchunk archive.bin archive.cue newarchive.iso
  • NRG: Download nrgtoiso from here
    1. With the nrg images it's the same deal than with bin and cue, they must be converted to iso, so we must install the software and convert the images with this:
    2. sudo apt-get install nrg2iso
    3. nrg2iso archive.nrg newarchive.iso

  • MDF and MDS: Download mdf2iso from here
    1. Same deal here:
    2. sudo apt-get install mdf2iso
    3. mdf2iso archive.mdf newarchive.iso

  • IMG
    1. This one is a little trickier, but I'll explain it anyway, The first way to do this, is using apt, and it goes like this:
    2. sudo apt-get install ccd2iso
    3. The other way is downloading the file and installing it manually, First download the file from: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ccd2iso
    4. The move to the download folder and write this in your terminal:
    5. tar -xzvf ccd2iso-0.2.tar.gz
    6. cd ccd2iso
    7. ./configure
    8. make
    9. make install
    10. After you've done that, you must convert the image, like this:
    11. ccd2iso image.img image.iso

And last but not least, Unmounting all of them:

  • sudo umount /media/image
