General :: Run Application Or Boot As Specific User

Apr 18, 2010

I have a need to run a specific app as a specific user when the machine boots into init 3. I can not run this as root so I need to specify a user. Can someone tell me how to accomplish this?I usually have to log in and start this application by typing check -D which starts this app and daemonizes it. I want to be able to run that at boot with my normal user not root.I hope I explained this correctly.I have added it to rc.local but it runs as root.

Ubuntu :: Allow A Specific User To Mount Or Remount A Specific Partition?

Jun 9, 2010

my system I want user1 and only user1 to be able to mount and unmount a specific partition, this partition contains backups and is usually mounted read only, needs to be temporarily mounted read/write by user1 while doing the backup.user1 is an unprivileged user. I've read that the user option will let any user mount the file-system (and only that user can then subsequently unmount it) and that the users option allows any user to mount or unmount the file-system.I also found this in mount's man pageQuote:The owner option is similar to the user option, with the restriction that the user must be the owner of the special file. This may be useful e.g. for /dev/fd if a login script makes the console user owner of this device. The group option is similar, with the restriction that the user must be member of the group of the special file.So it looks like I'd need a login script for that user to make the user owner of the device file (/dev/voiceserv/backup in this case)

Fedora :: Cannot Login To KDE As Specific User

Jul 17, 2010

I have a very peculiar issue - I can't log in to KDE as one particular user (andrew, which is my regular account) though all other users including root, mythtv & other family members can log in without any problem. When I try to login as andrew the X server appears to crash as the screen goes blank and I have to press Ctrl+Alt+BkSp to get back to the KDM login screen. The proximate cause seems to have been updating KDE to 4.4.5 using yum - I did this logged in as andrew in a terminal session using su - root, and the black screen problem arose next time I tried to log in.

I can log in OK as andrew using a different desktop manager e.g. Sugar. I am using radeonhd graphics driver; if I change to "vesa" in xorg.conf I can log in OK. If I change the home directory for andrew to that of another test user and change the file ownerships, I can log in OK. Therefore the problem must lie in a config file(s) somewhere in the andrew home directory tree, which is specific to KDE and also radeonhd. I have checked in all the obvious (and unobvious) places but can't find anything. There are no relevant SELinux errors or entries in syslog or Xorg.0.log. The .xsession-errors file from a failed login attempt is here [URL] it isn't significantly different from a normal one, and as the entries are not time-stamped I am not sure which ones arise during the login and which when I restart the X server. I am running F13 (kernel 2.6.33.6-147.fc13.x86_64) without any other significant issues.

General :: Set Specific Application To Always Reside In Ram?

Jun 12, 2010

how can you set specific application's data to always reside in ram, so it runs and launches super fast all the time?

i recall reading about how you could put all your libs folders into ramfs once, but it took up a lot of ram, so i never bothered, and it was really just for faster (instant) launching times.

i just want to be able to set that for specific things, like for example, the GIMP and Inkscape.

Debian :: How To Change Keys For Just One Specific Application

Aug 14, 2015

I want to remap my keys for a game I'm playing, for example WASD instead of arrows to walk, r, f, c to act like f1, f2, f3 and so on. I'm aware of xmodmap, but I want to do this just for one application and be able to use hotkey to toggle between this script and default setting. I've been trying to use AutoKey, but I cannot force it to work just for specific app. On windows solution is AutoHotKey, but it won't work through wine.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Specific Sound Car Per Application?

Oct 28, 2010

I have two sound cards in my computer. OpenSuSE 11.3 recognizes them both without a problem, and I can play sound through each of them. Is it possible to set one application to use one sound card simultaneously with another sound card routing to a different application? That would be sweet. For example, I have my surround speakers plugged into one sound card, so I can provide music for the whole room, and have my PC speakers next to the monitor playing a movie.

General :: Make Specific Keymaps For Application ?

Oct 14, 2010

I want to make specific keymaps for application, that working only in it and doesn't affect other apps.

For example, I already use my Caps key to toggle input language (via xorg.conf), but I want Capslock to behave like Esc in vim.

Looks like xmodmap doesn't have any options related to that.

Debian :: Set Default Application For Specific File Extensions

Dec 17, 2015

How to properly set some entries in:

$HOME/.config/mimeapps.list

so that:
*.odb files are opened by default with libreoffice base
*.org files (just org files not plain text files) are opened by default with emacs

For some reason I can not figure out how to proceed.

As far as I know - i.e. for what I have been reading in the documentation - the default application for a given MIME-type is specified by writing into the group [Default Applications] in the mimeapps.list file

My configuration is the following:

- 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1+deb8u6 (2015-11-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux
- gnome desktop

Jul 11, 2011

concerning controlling the windows in virtual desktop.

a) Say to a application to be launched to virtual desktop 2 for example.

b) How can you ask from a virtual application to be only visible at one virtual desktop. For example I work on virtual desktop 6 and I want to start skype that should be on virtual desktop 2. Right now If I launch the app on virtual desktop 6 it will appear on the same one. Would it be possible to ask for an applicaiton to be launched on an other virtual desktop. If yew how?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Launch Application In Specific Monitor?

Aug 24, 2010

I have a laptop running Ubuntu hooked up to a TV via a VGA to S-Video converter with the VGA-out through an external monitor, and I am trying to find a way to set vlc or mplayer to open fullscreen in the external monitor by default. Eventually I want to be able to hit enter on a video file and have it play on the TV without any dragging to the external monitor. I have googled around a bit, checked the monitor settings options, and looked through the media player options but so far can't find anything.

Ubuntu :: Select An Application To Open A (specific) File?

Mar 16, 2011

I have this problem, that I want a specific .exe file to open in Mono, but all other .exe files to open in Wine.

However, the only option there is, are 'Select an application to open XXXX.exe and other files of type "DOS/Windows executable"'

but I just want to open THIS .exe file in mono, and the rest in WINE.

I have been in similar situations before, in that I opened a folder containing music with VLC, and it worked fine, but after that, it assumed that I wanted to open all folders in VLC.

I assume that there must be an option for this, and I can not see why it ain't an option by default.

(I'm using Ubuntu 10.10)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Application Specific Audio Output To Headphones Only?

Jan 22, 2010

I currently have my desktop setup with two displays, one of them being my living room tv that I run Boxee on. My problem is that all the audio runs through the same speakers preventing me from listening to music or gaming at the same time as when Boxee is in use.

I would like to know if it's possible to split the audio so that an application of my choosing only outputs sound through my headphones. I was thinking it would be possible with some of the controls in pulse, but if it is I cannot figure it out.

Ubuntu Networking :: Forcing An Application To Use Specific Network Interface

Apr 19, 2010

How can I force a Wine application (or Wine itself) to use a specific network interface? I have installed hamachi and am trying to play starcraft over virtual LAN. However, when I run Starcraft with hamachi running, it does not work. I have now determined that hamachi creates a network interface called "ham0". How do I force Wine/Starcraft to use the "ham0" network connection? I have looked into forcebindip but it crashes on wine.

Ubuntu Networking :: 2+ Internet Interfaces - Control Application Specific Usage?

Mar 24, 2010

I currently have two internet interfaces installed, one is ethernet (eth0) and the second is wireless (wlan0). Many command line applications allow you to specify which interface should be used, but many gui apps don't provide this option or at least I haven't found it. I have some questions:

1. How would I tell Firefox to use only my wlan0 interface? If it's possible in Firefox, is this also possible with Google Chrome?

2. If a program doesn't provide a command line argument to support this, is there a standalone application that could help manage preferences for multiple applications?

CentOS 5 :: Specific Uid And Gid For Default User

Jul 9, 2009

Because I keep a lot of data on a Netgear ReadyNAS which can be presented as a NFS server, I would like to have the default CentOS user have a uid and gid that match those for the user that owns the main NFS share. That way I can treat it as if it were a directory that I owned on the local machine. I'm probably going to install CentOS 5.3 over again to get a totally clean system. What is the neatest way to ensure that the default user has the desired uid and gid? Or is there a better way to work with the NAS? (Right now I'm running it with CIFS shares, but these are quirky and do not behave quite like a local file system, I'm hoping that NFS would be more consistent, but previously attempts to run NFS were hampered by different uid and gid values).

Ubuntu :: Auto Login As A Specific User?

I'm working on a kiosk-type system. What it needs to do is boot, auto login as a specific user, display only the Gnome desktop (no icons, etc), and auto start an application.

Is this possible (I'm sure it is)? If so, can this be scripted, i.e. without having to use graphical tools like Sabayon.

Ubuntu :: Detailed Logging Of A Specific User?

Nov 9, 2010

we are in a place where we have to give an account (with sudo access...) to a user we don't completely trust (I am reminded of this comic). What we need to set up is some way of logging pretty much everything that this user does, especially what he does as root (via sudo or sudo -s). Now, I know that anything we do can easily be undone by another user with root access, but we feel that if he does disable logging we can use this as a really good excuse to revoke his access. So, does anyone know what logging stuff I'd have to set up to completely monitor one user (it is ok if we are monitoring everyone, but we'd prefer to watch one user if possible)?
