Getting rid of Insert Ubuntu Disc MessagePosted: January 14, 2008
This “Insert Disc” message was annoying and frustrating almost at any time I was trying to install a new software on my Ubuntu (7.10 gutsy-gibbon).
Media change: please insert the disc labeled 'Ubuntu 7.10 _Gutsy Gibbon_ - Release i386 (20071016.1)' in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter
If you want to get rid of it you should comment out the line that point to the “CD-ROM” Source.
Type the following in the terminal:
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Locate the line that reads:
deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 7.10 _Gutsy Gibbon_ - Release i386 (20071016)]/ gutsy main restricted
and comment it out
#deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 7.10 _Gutsy Gibbon_ - Release i386 (20071016)]/ gutsy main restricted
Save the file, close the editor, back in the terminal window type:
sudo apt-get update
Good luck and thank you for choosing Ubuntu.
