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 Day
Romans 1:11-16 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established; That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles. I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
