Hello,
I could use a file splitter. Ideally with GUI.

Any recommendations?



Thanks,
Mike

Thanks, I would like to use Ksplitter, as I prefer a GUI.

In the meantime, just this morning, I found something online about splitting files.

In terminal, I type:
Code:
split -b 1024m <filename>


1024 is the chunk size, this is just a sample. Replace file name with the actual file to be split.

This creates multiple files of the specific size, named xaa, xab, xac....

To re-join them:
Code:
cat xa* > <filename>


I have tested this, and it works great. However, I still prefer the GUI. That being said, I went to Add/Remove programs, but can not find "Ksplitter"

Thanks,
Mike

Isn't ksplitter a freeware windows app? Might work with wine. Probably not libre, however.

There's a gtklxsplit gui shell for the lx split command line file splitter. These are gpl utilities. http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/#linux

I haven't used either and I could be wrong about ksplitter.

After some more searching, I found a GUI file splitter called:

gtk-splitter-2.0-1.i386.rpm

I downloaded it from this site:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/ ... 6.rpm.html

It installed just fine and works great.

I don't know if it is free and open source. I can't seem to find an "About" for the program. I am assuming it is because it looks like the source code is available at the same location.

Does anyone know about this program? I hope it is ok to install.

Mike

Does anyone know if file-roller does this?

http://gtk-splitter.sourceforge.net/
"gtk-splitter is released under the GPL license."

Ya, if you can dig up your old scripts they probably work! That's the nicest thing about GNU/Unix/Linux/etc. is that you can write something once and you can use it for years unmodified....
