Debian Configuration :: How To Auto Logoff After Exiting X

Jun 18, 2010

I can use this at the end of bash_profile to autorun start x after logging on. code...

But what about to auto logout after killing the X session? I hit exit from fluxbox, but I could add a menu item I suppose to just kill the xsession. Wondering if there is a graceful way to do it with bash_profile.

Also, on a related note, if I switch to dash with the bash_profile method still work?

Debian Configuration :: Exiting Run Level 1 (Single User Mode)?

Feb 11, 2010

I'm running Debian Lenny. When I exit run level 1 (single user mode), the system automatically continues into run level 2. I have browsed the init scripts and have yet to determine how this "magic" is performed. I would be grateful if a local guru would point me to how the scripts automatically proceed into run level 2 when exiting run level 1

Ubuntu :: Auto Logoff Command When Startup App Is Terminated

Dec 17, 2010

I am using Ubuntu as the client machine operating system. I have a start up program to connect to a Windows terminal Server. I am needing assistance in how I can force the client to logoff if the terminal connection is terminated for any reason. This is more of a security issue as we do not want the students using the computer to access the loacl machine at all. The program works great on boot, but it shows the home screen when terminated.

Debian Configuration :: Auto-login And Auto-connect To Networks

Jun 3, 2010

I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:

1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work.
2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.

And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?

Debian :: Cups Not Starting With The Server / Getting Error Unable To Read Configuration File '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - Exiting?

Feb 24, 2011

cups does not start with the server. When I try to start from the terminal I get the error message

cupsd: Unable to read configuration file '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - exiting!
cupsd: Child exited with status 1!

The log files show nothing. cupsd.conf exists. It is user - root and group - root with permissions set at 0644.

My interpretation of this is that the program is not launching from either boot or terminal for a fundamental reason. I do not quite see what that reason is .

Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Auto-remove Removes Nothing

Aug 10, 2015

The apt-get autoremove command, I use Debian 8 for some time now and I often install a package, test it for some minutes and remove it then. I noticed that in most cases (if not all, I'm not completely sure) all the dependencies that were installed with the package (mostly libraries, of course) stay installed on the system when I remove the package.

And there is no output of apt-get that there are unnecessary pacakges which I can remove with apt-get autoremove. The autoremove command does nothing.Before I changed to Debian, I used Ubuntu and there all the dependencies are removed with apt-get autoremove when I uninstalled a package.My question is now, is this normal? if there are fundamental differences in which packages "autoremove" removes between Debian and Ubuntu?

Debian Configuration :: How To Auto-start GUI As Root

Sep 28, 2015

I have a "time-server". It's sending time to different devices through different ports/protocols. The problem is that it has no operator and that makes some extra difficulties.

Now when i try to start it using terminal Code: Select allsudo ./myprogram works fine and

Code: Select all./myprogram doesn't work.

It is so because without sudo i have no access to ports. As a result If i add my program to System->Preferences->Startup Applications it has the same problem. So i need to start it as root, auto-start, right after auto-login to system but without entering password cause nobody will do it.

Also I need to start ntpd but it also asks password sometimes I've tried googles but it offer a few ways with entering password that isn't suitable for me or writing some scripts/changing system files but with no example I'm afraid to break it all. So is there a way to start Myprogram and NTPD as root with no password entering?

My system is Debian 6.0.10 Squeeze, Kernel 2.6.32-5-686

Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Auto-remove After Installing Jessie

Jun 20, 2015

After installing Jessie, apt-get gives me a huge list of packages with the suggestion to autoremove them. Now, I've tried auto-remove once and was left with a naked Gnome, so I was wondering if there's another way to find out which packages I should keep and which I can safely remove. Is it safe to delete packages that cannot be found using the search function for the stable release? I checked them one by one here URL....How about linux images that won't appear in the above search?


How about results shown by deborphan?

Debian Configuration :: Auto Start Proxy On Boot

Aug 13, 2015

I have a debian 8.1.1 server running owncloud and a proxy server at home. I have everything working fine, with one exception. The proxy server won't start on boot. If I ssh into the server, then run "sockd -D" as root, it starts up and runs just fine. Any guides I find refer to the init.d script method that worked in Wheezy, but that isn't working. I think it has to do with Jessie switching to systemd? I had used someone elses script in init.d, and ran update-rc.d, but it still doesn't start.

With Jessie, how can I make "sockd -D" execute on system startup?

Debian Configuration :: Network / Interfaces Allow-hotplug And Auto?

Debian Configuration :: Can't Auto-Mount External NTFS Volume

Debian Configuration :: Network-manager & Auto Scanning While Connected

May 6, 2010

I'm trying to use network-manager in sid and it's incredibly frustrating because every 2 minutes or so it seems to scan for wireless access points, during which time my SSH connections completely hang and screw up. Pings start dropping packets as well. By doing an "iwlist scan" I can reproduce the behavior. Has anyone else dealt with this? I haven't been using network-manager, but I am currently due to mobility and needed VPN functionality... WICD with no network-manager works better but there's no gui-based VPN support. I've got an Atheros wireless device and I've read that supposedly it should be doing background scanning since kernel 2.6.32, but I haven't seen anything like that, and I'm on 2.6.32-5-amd64 currently, 2.6.32-3-amd64 behaves the same too.

Debian Configuration :: Auto Syncing Folder With Windows Share?

Aug 10, 2010

I use Debian Squeeze on my laptop, and in my office we have a WinXP box where we store all our documents and stuff. When I'm in the office, I can directly mount my directory to edit documents, and at home/wherever I can use VPN to connect to the box so it's no problem again.

However: I'd like to know if there is a way to set up a directory on my laptop, that I can use even when offline, and then when I'm connected to the office computer, it automatically syncs with it.

Debian Configuration :: Stop Squeeze Auto Using My Mobile As Wired Network?

May 25, 2010

I have Debian Squeeze AMD64 bit release. It finds my wired ethernet connection and ues itfine, although nothing shows up in the top right corner under the networking icon.

When I plug my mobile phone in (HTC S620) it always uses this as the main internet connection and then even if disconnected wont use my wired connection until I reboot.

Is there a way to stop it doing this or at least have my wired connction as an option so I can just click to reconnect to my ethernet connection?

Debian :: Openssh-server Auto Configuration Fails When Upgrading Lenny To Squeeze?

Sep 10, 2010

I'm in need of a bit of assistance from you Debian users. I have two servers that I thought were identical installations, both running Debian Lenny. Tonight I started the upgrade to Squeeze on both servers and one of them went smooth. The other one started out good but fails on the postconfiguration of openssh-server. I'm getting the following message:

Setting up openssh-server (1:5.5p1-4) ...
Auto configuration failed
2524:error:0E079065:configuration file routines:DEF_LOAD_BIO:missing equal sign:conf_def.c:366:line 67
invoke-rc.d: initscript ssh, action "restart" failed.


It looks like there's an error in one of the files in openssh-server that prohibits it from installing correctly. However on the other server it all went well.

Debian :: Iceweasel Not Exiting From Video Full Screen Mode

Aug 11, 2015

I use Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 64-bit stable OS with Gnome 3.14.1 and Iceweasel 31.8.0

Some times, when watching full screen videos on: „you tube”, the only way to exit from full screen is to navigate with Alt+Tab to another open window, which cancel full screen mode, or Alt+F4.

Esc and „Exit from full screen mode” down right button, do not cancel full screen. Also on vimeo full screen videos freezes on half way.

I read that these may be because of VGA so i changed the VGA adapter, problem persists!

General :: NetworkManager 0.8 Auto Configuration Not Working

Jul 11, 2010

I just installed Linux for the first time and I'm having some internet connection issues. I am running Linux Mint 9 on my HP 210 netbook. I am unable to connect to anything using NetworkManager 0.8's automatic configuration. I can't even ping my other computer. Both computers are connected to my cable modem by a switch. The other computer (the one I'm on right now) is running Windows Vista and is working fine.

eth0 is getting an IPv6 address assigned to it, but no IPv4 address. When I do dhclient (I'll include it at the bottom) it says no DHCPOFFERS received and then makes another adapter called eth0:avahi with an IP of, which I think I understand from what I read is just a default.

I noticed when I looked at the ipconfig results from my Windows computer that there were a number of things called tunnels on there. My ISP is cox, and I saw some other people with cox had the same setup. One of the tunnels seems to make it so IPv4 and 6 can coexist. Could that be a problem? When I asked Cox why it was set up that way they helpfully referred me to wikipedia.

Here are my ipconfig (from windows), ifconfig, and dhclient results. Let me know if I can provide any other information.

Ubuntu :: Logoff From DE From Console?

Logging out and logging in again seems to solve this problem, but sometimes I cannot even access the terminal from the Desktop.
Is there any command that I can use from the console so that my session at the desktop environment ends and I log out?
I already tried gnome-session-save --logout but it doesn't work

OpenSUSE :: VBox + Suse X64 - Freezes During Auto Configuration

Has anyone successfully installed the x64 on VBox? Is there a different way to install the x64, because I don't think VBox can process this version. The few problems I have are:

1) it freezes during Auto Configuration.
2) freezes during boot initialization.
3) after reboot it keeps prompting me to complete a failed install, and doesn't matter if I accept to complete or not, I have the same problem.
4) freezes randomly executing system programs.

Ubuntu :: Erase Profile At Logoff

Aug 3, 2010

I work for a public school and we are implementing a number of Ubuntu NBR 9.1 netbooks. I wanted to use Likewise Active Directory for authentication, but have problems with the software so now I'm onto another solution for our problem.
We are going to have one login for all users (Students, is the name). The problem with this is that Website passwords can inadvertantly be stored, potentially compromising users personal data. Additionally, I don't want to have any files left in the Students profile in case people accidentally save personal information in their files.I'm thinking there are potentially two solutions:

1. The Students profile is deleted when the user logs off. This will erase web history and files

2. The Students account is always logged in with a temporary profile (or no profile, if that is possible) that deletes itself at logoff because it is temporary.

I'm having a hard time coming up with search terms for a solution like this, so I thought I would put the question to the experts.
