Ubuntu has a program called “disks” which makes mounting and unmounting drives pretty easy, but sometimes the automatic settings for mounting a drive isn’t the best and can lead to strange problems. Like sometimes when you mount a CD-ROM you’ll find the files have strange characters (chinese or japanese or something) instead of the normal english characters and the files aren’t all listed etc. This is pretty easy to fix. Go to the program “disks” which you can find in the dash menu and go click on your cd/dvd drive in the left hand column. Then you’ll see the cd rom in the right hand column. Click on the little gears icon for the settings. Click “edit mount options” and turn automatic mount options to the off position so you can change them. The first box says, “mount at startup,” the second “show in user interface,” the third “require additional authorization to mount,” the fourth “display name,” the fifth, “icon name,” the sixth “symbolic icon name” AND THE SEVENTH is a list of options. That’s the part you need. After one of the commas add “utf8,” that’s utf8 followed by a comma (make sure there is no comma at the end of the line though) and click okay and exit the disks program. Eject your cd and put it back in. It should work now.
Bible Verse of the DayIsaiah 55:6-13 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
