I can confirm that opening the disc with VLC does bypass the protection. However, when using dd, I had to use this command after opening VLC (discovered by loading the disc and using the directory exposed in VLC). dd if=/dev/sr0 of=image_of_disc.iso Which is different from many posts I have read that say this command should work: dd if=/dev/cdrom ...

You can use fswatch, a portable tool which selects the appropriate event mechanism if available (Linux, Mac, *BSD) or just stat(2) elsewhere. I did not write it, but I use it. It's open source (GNU GPL). Example usage: fswatch -e '.' -i '\.end$' . | while read file do # Get rid of removed file events ls $file 2>/dev/null || continue echo ...

You can save your MBR to a file using dd dd if=/dev/sdX of=~/MBR.backup bs=512 count=1 Where X is the device you want the backup from. Mind the if parameter it is the device (sda) not the partition (sda1,sda2,sdb1, etc...)

Ah backups... Before portability... The starting point for setting up a backup system is to determine what you're trying to accomplish with the backup. For example, even a simple WordPress backup requires making a copy of both the database + flat files associated with the WordPress install. If the system is more complex, meaning for example there are ...

The add-apt-repository command is part of the software-properties-common package in Debian 8.x (jessie). Once you've installed software-properties-common, you'll have add-apt-repository available and you can use it to add PPA repositories. Note: Be sure that the packages you're installing are compatible with Debian. If the packages are only available for ...

To write to your removable disk, you need to change the permissions of the location where /dev/sdb is mounted and not the permissions of the /dev/sdb device itself. I see from your mount output that it's mounted on /media/masi/_linuxDisc - change the permissions of that directory and then instruct Deja Dup to use that as your backup target. Don't instruct ...

I had a similar problem and found a similar solution, except that I don't have a choice for using PTP over MTP on my device. What I did is : I installed gphotofs and ran gphotofs ~/some-mount-point then I could using rsync as before !

The latest version of the HFS+ utilities on Debian are, as far as I can tell, from 2006 and lacking a maintainer. Apple released Time Machine in 2007, and when they did they introduced some quite significant changes to HFS+ (particularly to do with hard links to directories). It is highly likely that the HFS+ tools on Debian cannot deal very well with a Time ...
