    what to do
    put "wbfs" executable at /bin/wbfs
    run my app as root
    put hard disk in first text box (eg. /dev/sdb3)
    press initialize
    put path to disk image in second box (eg. /home/user/image.iso)
    press add
    then you wait untill it is responding again, I need to add more stuff like progress bar
    I am not responsible for any damage for you putting wrong hard drive (i wiped a wrong disk once for being stupid)
    enjoy! thanks to everyone for help me!

    Thank you for creating this!! I have quite a few questions though. I've been using Ubuntu for quite some time now, but as I'm sure you know, Ubuntu lets you get away without having to do much terminal work. From your link I've downloaded wbf-wrapper and moved it to my /bin/ folder but from there how do I open it as root? I've tried going to my terminal and using "sudo wbf-wrapper" and "sudo wbf-wrapper start" etc. but haven't been able to open it. Can you try to dumb it down for a Ubuntu dummy? [​IMG]

    you can put wbf-wrapper anywhere you need to put the wbfs executable found here
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144278
    in your /bin folder. You can then open up gnome-terminal and type in
    sudo then drag and drop the wbfs wrapper that I created into it. it should run from there.

    Ok I had missed that first file completely. I moved wbfs to my /bin/ folder but now I'm having another problem. When I type sudo and drag wbf-wrapper into the terminal I get an error. It looks like it's trying to open your executable in Wine for some reason. It tells me "There is no Windows program configured to open this type of file" :-/

    Edit: I right click on the file and changed the "Open With" type. The only thing I saw on the list that seemed appropriate was "Autorun Prompt". So I tried once again to type "sudo" and drag the file into the terminal. I got this error:

    sudo: /home/joshua/Desktop/wbf-wrapper: command not found

    CODEsudo '/home/user/wbf-wrapper'

    (See my edit above) That's what it looks like. I feel annoying having this issue so I apologize. I attached a screen so maybe you can see if you notice anything. You can see wbfs in the /bin/ folder, my terminal and it's error and wbf-wrapper on the desktop.[​IMG]

    Cojiro... Isn't that the name of that weird skinny guy in Ocarina of time? Or was that the chicken? You have some good memory if you can remember back that far!
