Fedora :: Bash Arrows While Waiting For A Command To Complete

Jul 31, 2010

For as long as i can remember, using arrows (and home/end) in a bash shell that has a command running would print some fancy ^[[A caracters and then return the prompt at the end of this.

Now this behavior has changed. Using the arrows while a command is running actually moves the cursor on the screen. When the command completes the prompt appears at the new cursor position which is kind of strange and messes the screen.

For testing, just enter "sleep 10" and during the wait move the cursor with the arrows and home/end.

How can i get back the original behavior?

Fedora :: CUPS Stuck At "waiting For Job To Complete"?

Feb 2, 2010

For some reason my new F12 install can print one document, then its seems to hang.

It never clears the print queue even when the document has printed, which I guess is why the next job never gets through. Even if I cancel the finished job, the next one won't start because the status in cups is "waiting for job to complete".

To fix it I have to kill cupsd and any print processes, reboot the printer and print server.

I guess F12 must do something to hang the print server (uses IPP) as I can't even print from a known-working F10 machine after F12 has printed.

I don't really think the below is relevant as its a F12/CUPS 1.4.2 issue I'd say (as its works fine on F10 and Ubuntu 9.04) but here you go:

Print server: Linksys WPS54G v1
Printer: Samsung ML-2510
Driver: Samsung ML-2010 Foomatic/gdi (grayscale)

Ubuntu :: Bash Commands' Auto-complete Not Working For Some Apps?

Jan 15, 2010

I've got an annoying problem that 'man' and some other commands do not auto-complete (via TAB). e.g. typing: man rsyn (TAB, TAB, TAB, etc) will not auto-complete to 'man rsync' however, if i 'sudo -s' & then try the above, 'man' auto-completes everytime. (Directories always auto-complete successfully) My ~/.bashrc contains:


# enable bash completion in interactive shells
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ] && ! shopt -oq posix; then
. /etc/bash_completion

Ubuntu :: Bash-completion + Mount = Failure To Complete Directories?

May 27, 2011

I've spent some time searching for answers to this and I haven't found much at all.Please feel free to post pointers to other threads that discuss this particular problem, if you find any.The problem is that in bash I want to mount an iso file to inspect the contents with the command:Code:sudo mount myCD.iso CDMount -o loopThe command works fine, but pressing tab to complete either the iso filename or the CDMount directory does not work. The completion suggestions I get are existing mountpoints which The completion suggestions should include the files and directories in the current directory. This worked with Ubuntu 10.04 and not with 11.04.

Fedora :: Bash Hangs When Command Not Found / Sort It?

Dec 9, 2009

I've been using linux for a long time, and I just ran into a problem that has me stumped. Any time I mistype a command, it says "Command not found."... yea, I know that's normal. But it doesn't return me to my # prompt. I have to press Ctrl+C to get back. code...

I know I do have one issue with this computer, I have 2 blown caps on my motherboard. This was a dual boot system, but after a virus with winblows, I decided to switch it to strictly linux. (roommates... *grumble*) I think I was running fc10 before I wiped the hd & installed fc12. Fc12 does seem to be running slower, and I still haven't got my sound card working properly... but that issue is for another topic...

Red Hat / Fedora :: Bash Script To Monitor Server Load / Mail From Command Line

May 4, 2010

I am attempting to write a very basic script that monitors a server's load and automatically emails an administrator upon the load reaching a certain threshold...

1.) `uptime | awk -F ' ' {'print $10'} | cut -d ',' -f1 | awk -F '.' {'print $1'}` -- the output from this command results in a decimal figure, so when that value is parsed and placed in an if statement, the value is not seen as a number. load-monitor.sh: line 9: [: 4.96: integer expression expected/How can I allow a number like "4.56" to be seen as an actual number within the if statement and be compared to 4, for instance?

2.) I am running a cPanel server on CentOS 5.4 -- when I run mail -s "SUBJECT" $EMAILADDRESS the command just hangs, and stracing the process shows it stuck on a read syscall.

3.) If I wanted to write this script in PHP, I have one primary confusion -- how can I mimic the functionality of obtaining the output from uptime via awk, etc. so that I can determine what the server load is at a given time? Which PHP function(s) would assist in that regard?

Ubuntu :: Font - Alphabet With Directional Arrows

Apr 17, 2011

I have been searching for some time for a font that can be used to put together letters and words for examples to get children learn how to write. I need letters with and without arrows pointing in the direction of how to write the letter. This font will be used for creating worksheets for letters and words. I need to be also able to change the colour of the font to really light gray so that children can also trace the letters.

I found alot of commercial software but was looking something thats free and can be used by a tuition company/tutor to print materials for their students without any license restrictions. In a worst case I can blow up individual letters in open office and manually draw the arrows but would be great if a font exists that can be used as would give great scope in future projects.

General :: Bash Command History Update Before Execution Of Command

Jun 7, 2010

Bash's command history is great, especially it is useful when adding the history -a command to the COMMAND_PROMPT.However, I'm wondering if there is a way to log the commands to a file as soon as the Return key is pressed, e.g. before starting the command and not on completion of the command (using the COMMAND_PROMPT option would save the command once the prompt is there again).

I read about auditing programs like snoopy and session recorder like script but I thought they're already too complex for the simple question I have. I guess that deactivating that script logs all the output of the command would lead already in the right direction but isn't there a quicker way to solve that probelm?

Ubuntu Installation :: "gave Up Waiting For Root Device" - Page With A Command Prompt Flashing At Initiramfs

May 26, 2010

I have a Toshiba NB305 netbook running windows 7. I installed netbook ubuntu 10.04 from a USB drive this morning after playing with the live ISO off the USB. I chose to repartition and keep Windows 7. Upon boot, I get GRUB and when I choose either the Ubuntu or the Recovery I get a "gave up waiting for root device" page with a command prompt flashing at initiramfs.

The Alert reads, "/dev/disk/by-uuid/49024e15-119a-4339-ad23-f201ce4a6d1f does not exist. Dropping to Shell!

I'm still able to boot windows 7 as well as the live cd and see all the partitions and operating systems.

I've looked inside the Grub.cfg file and the commands aren't pointing to /dev/sda5/ but rather to the uuid? Is this normal? Does this need to be changed?

I will run this script and try and get some more info.

Ubuntu :: BASH: Execute Next Command Until Another Command Succeed?

I have a big bash script ,its goal is to download movie one by one . But I often get into a problem: if this script is executed in cron,it often does not completely download the movie.I often find the movies it downloaded are several KB while the movie is actually 20MB.So I think it is because it did not wait for finishing one task ,and jump to download another.So I want to know ,is there a way to force the bash script to wait until one movie downloaded completely and then start to download another movie ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Simple Graphic Editor For Arrows And Text?

I need to add arrows, text, geometric shapes, etc. to graphical charts. Gimp doesn't have any way to easily add arrows (that I know of) -it's way sophisticated compared to what I need.Back in the MS Windows world I used to use Snagit Studio. I could probably run that in Wine but I'd prefer something native.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Theme Menu Arrows Have Randomly Disappeared

Jun 25, 2011

I'm running Debian Squeeze, and I have a gnome theme called "Moomex" installed. I have had it for a while and it has worked fine, until it suddenly stopped displaying menu scroll arrows (like for long bookmark menus in web browsers). I can still scroll, but in place of the arrows is a solid colored rectangle that clashes with my theme. I went searching and found my theme's arrow image files (see code below). I have no idea how these files are implemented into the theme display, so I don't know how to re-enable them. I tried reinstalling the theme, but it changed nothing. These arrows show up just fine in any other stock theme, and they were fine in this one too until they randomly disappeared.
