Debian :: Accents Just Work When Logged As Root

Mar 10, 2011

I can use the accents (tilde, acute, ...) normally when I am the root, but when I log into my user account they re not recognized in most applications (opera, emacs, amsn, python idle,...) although they work in other applications (terminal, vim, iceweasel...). I guess that would have a simple solution. Something is right in the root account and wrong in my user account, but I cant figure it out. My layout is USA International (with dead keys).

Debian Configuration :: User Cannot Shutdown While Root Is Logged In

Jun 29, 2011

on my netbook I've tried to make possible for my user to shutdown without needing a password. battery could run low when I'm not in front of it. Editing sudoers has allowed my user to shutdown the system, but Gnome still prompts me for the root password whenever root is logged in too. That's usually the case, because to avoid entering the root password multiple times whenever I need elevated privileges and not wanting to cache the root password, I keep a Root Terminal always open.

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard: Unexpectedly Accents Don't Work?

Dec 8, 2010

Since a couple of weeks ago, almost everyday (and some days more than once) my keyboard does strange things. Mainly, the accents (etc) don't work (they come 'a'e'o), and that's important for me.It happens unexpectedly; at least I have not been able to put it in relation with something I did (anyway, it had never happened before).In Personal settings -> Input Devices -> keyboard everything looks normal, nothing changed.I don't know where to begin to find a solution. The only thing I can do now is to reboot.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: WPA Password With Accents Won't Work

Sep 15, 2011

I've just found out this isn't OpenSuse exclusive, but I noticed it when setting up OpenSuse 11.4 on a laptop.The WPA password in question has an accented vowel (ã) which is making both my Linux laptops (a KDE and a Gnome one) fail to connect. My wife's Win7 laptop has no problem with it. If I change the letter from ã to a, then they connect.Is there a way to configure the Networkmanagers so that they accept these special characters?

Ubuntu :: File Names With Spanish Accents / Copied From Windows And Don't Work

May 18, 2010

we have two work computers, one with windows and one with Ubuntu. We are going to change the windows computer to Ubuntu, and put them on a network. So we copied all of the documents on the windows computer to the Ubuntu computer as a first step. The problem is, with the documents and folders that we copied, if they have spanish accents we can't open them.I tried looking on the forum but I didn't find anything about exactly that problem. One post suggested that the "locale" might be the problem, but our locale seems to be the correct one for our country and language.

The accents show up as white question marks inside a black diamond. If I open a file inside a folder with an accent, or a file with an accent, it tells me that the file doesn't exist.But when I change the name of the containing folder or the file, and replace the question marks with accents, I can open the folders and files.But we have lots and lots of documents, and it would take a really long time to change the name of all of the folders and files. How can I fix all of them at the same time?

Fedora Security :: Shutdown When Root Is Logged In?

Oct 2, 2009

I am using Fedora 10 .Generally to update I open a virtual console by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2,login as root and give the "yum update" command.Then I continue using my graphical terminal for other tasks from the 'non-root' account..Now my room-mate comes uses my 'non-root' account to browse web for few minutes and then opens a terminal types "halt", ENTER and viola...! My root account seems to be insulted by a 'non-root' user!.When I am doing updates or other important work as root any silly user can just 'halt' my computer. Can somebody tell me how to set up my computer so that when root is logged in no other user can simply halt the computer.

Hardware :: External HDD Not Initializing Until Logged In As Root?

Feb 18, 2009

Fedora 9 and a maxtor 500gb external It seems i cant get the hd to initialize (not sure if thats the correct word for it) until I log in as root. I can see the icon on the desktop for it and everything, but when i double click on the icon nothing happens. It also doesnt appear in /media/. If I log out of the user account and log into root, all of the sudden i can open the icon in both root AND the user account. It also shows up in /media/. I'm not sure if its a permissions issue or something else.

ps: using ssh to log into root from another machine makes no difference though, only using X or whatever its called from the physical machine.

Fedora :: 10 Logged In As Root, Cannot Install Package Updates In Graphical Environment?

Jan 17, 2009

I have updated the gdm file to be able to log in as root in Fedora 10.Nevertheless after I had selected package updates to be installed logged in as root I still get an error message that I do not have enough privileges.The terminal installation method is a bit of a problem since I do not think it will search for dependencies and therefore it can be excessively long to figure out what is missing for a package installation. In simple cases it works OK, but in more difficult cases it is a bear.

Server :: Sendmail - Everything Appears To Work But No Subject Is Logged

Aug 6, 2010

I am looking for the syntax for a sendmail ruleset to log the message subject to the syslog service. I have found a few posts on the web, but none seem to work. The basic appear to be - add the following to the file then compile the file using M4. The syntax suggested follows (I believe the rewrite rule is incorrect)(I and using <T> to indicate tabs):

Klog syslog

R$*<T>$:<T>$(log Subject=$1<T>$)<T>$1 compiles and when used as the config file for sendmail - everything appears to work, but no subject is logged.

Ubuntu Servers :: PhpMyAdmin Installation - Don't Use "sudo" Because Logged In As Root

Nov 25, 2010

I'm trying to install phpMyAdmin on my Ubuntu 10.10 server. I type the following command (I don't use "sudo" because I'm logged in as root, I know its not safe):

Quote: apt-get install phpmyadmin and go through the installation. I allow the installation to configure the database, and I chose the correct server (Apache2), when it asks for passwords, I use the same password that I use for the rest of the server (i.e. it is the account password for root, sudo, and my account). Once the installation is complete, I try and access it from a computer on the same network. I type "http://***.***.*.*/phpmyadmin" and I get the message saying the directory isn't there. I go into Webmin to confirm that the directory isn't there, and it isn't.

My questions are (1) Why isn't the phpmyadmin directory in my Apache Server root? (2) Is it installed with apt-get, if so, where? (3) How do I know what server I selected for it to install to? (4) What do I need to do to get it to install correctly?

OpenSUSE :: Logged In As Root But Getting "user Davfs2 Does Not Exist"

Jan 23, 2011

But I've gotten as far as getting davfs to work on RH Linux. However, on SuSE I'm logged in as root, but when I issue the mount command I'm getting "user davfs2 does not exist". (I was getting "group davfs2 does not exist", so I created the group (groupadd davfs2) then added the user davfs2 to the new group by following the instructions at The Nerdrium : Linux : Creating Groups.

The command I'm issuing is: mount -t davfs http://.....

I get challenged for credentials, but after I enter them I get the "user davfs2 does not exist" message.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unable To "su" To Root When Logged In As A Normal User?

Jan 5, 2010

I have a Red Hat 4 server with Sungard Luminis installed on it. I was following some instructions on setting up Luminis to start at boot. One of the steps was modifying the sudoers file. Since modifying the sudores file, I am no longer able to "su" to root when logged in as a normal user. When doing so, I get su: incorrect password after putting in the password. I have another server with the exact same setup, broken one is test, the other is production, that works just fine. I made no changes to my production server. I've been looking at different things all day and the only difference I have found between the two are the results I get from running rpm -q --verify coreutils. Running that on my prodution server returns nothing. Results from my test server are below. Is this what is causing my problems? If so, what's the fix? I haven't found that yet. I've checked /etc/pam.d/su, both servers are the same.

rpm -q --verify coreutils
.....UG.. /bin/basename
.....UG.. /bin/cat
.....UG.. /bin/chgrp

Software :: Can't Get Certain French Accents In TTY Console

Oct 30, 2010

I'm trying to get all french accents to work in gentoo, so far everything works fine when in X/gnome, i type "setxkbmap ca" to load the french canadian keys and i'm able to type etc... however when I switch to TTY console mode (ctrl-alt-F2 for example), i am only able to obtain and none of the others like etc...

I know that in TTY the command loadkeys is responsible for the character set and does not affect gnome in X which leads me to believe I need to fiddle with loadkeys command, however I tried all instances of the french keymaps found in /usr/share/keymaps/i386/ by issuing "loadkeys fr","loadkeys fr-latin1", etc.. I tried them all, one of them was able to give me the accents I'm missing but didnt correspond to the keys on my keyboard (microsoft wired 500 series)..

my locales are set according to the gentoo localisation guide, echo $LANG outputs en_US.UTF-8 because I wish to keep my system prompts in english (I also tried setting to to french without success in the accents)

Debian :: Ssh Login Not Being Logged?

Nov 9, 2010

I just installed debian 5.06 i386 130MB that I downloaded yesterday(Monday).My problem is that when an incoming ssh connection to this debian box is established, but nothing is being logged to /var/log/auth.log on this box. I've tail -f the auth.log which verified nothing is getting logged for ssh. The auth.log is showing activity, mostly root logins and logoffs, but no ssh activity.I understand that /etc/rsyslog.conf may control what gets logged. I had pastebinned this file on #debian but people noted that it looked fine.I have not made any changes to the system, like editing config files or anything. The system is essentially just out of the box.What else can I do to figure this out? Otherwise, I am pleased with how Debian installed on 2002 vintage machine, and is running in console mod
