Command not found-Linux

#1 Post by Stuartf » 20 Dec 2013, 16:06

Running Mint 15, this is all new to me. Need to find some photos, so downloaded version 6.13 from Software Manager.

I go to terminal and type "sudo testdisk-6.13/photorec_static" and get message:
sudo: testdisk-6.13/photorec_static: command not found

I checked in software manager and it said I had version 6.13-1ubuntu2
so I tried "sudo testdisk-6.13-1ubuntu2/photorec_static" to no better result.

Any guidance, I deleted a couple of year's photos from Picasa as it showed duplicate directories, but I guess that was an artifact, as now they are both gone!

I do not use Mint, but might be you can type
sudo
the system should ask for the root password.
If it doesn't try:
su -

Once you become superuser, just type

photorec

Perhaps it would be better to run TestDisk or PhotoRec from a bootable CD/DVD.
Parted Magic, Knoppix, Ubuntu, or any distro of your choice.
Make sure you save the files you pull to a different device and that you have ample space.

Best of luck
