Running Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier in Ubuntu Linux #

Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier can copy files from failing media while skipping files that are corrupt or unrecoverable. The Windows version has been listed for many years; here's how to get the Linux version working under Ubuntu 9.10:
  1. Download the Linux version
  2. Extract unstopcp from unstopcp.gz
  3. chmod +x unstopcp or from the GUI: right click unstopcp > Properties > Permissions > check "Allow executing file as a program" > Close
  4. Kubuntu users (or others running KDE) can simply double click unstopcp to launch it. GNOME users may find nothing happens after double clicking. Running unstopcp from the Terminal reveals: unstopcp: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. libqt-mt is the Trolltech Qt library, necessary for running KDE3 apps.
  5. Head to System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager, do a quick search for "libqt3-mt" and install it.
  6. Now GNOME users should be able to launch unstopcp successfully:
