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.

General :: Starting VNC Upon Boot-up Using Specific User

Oct 27, 2010

So right now VNC is starting a session using :1. When I connect to that session, the terminal is logged in as root. I'd like for the terminal to be logged in as a different user as some of my end users are going to be using this and don't require such privileges. I found that I can "su" to a different user and start a new VNC daemon on :2 and when I connect to that session, the terminal is logged in as that user. What I want to do is get that to run at boot-up.

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.

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.

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)

General :: Disable Telnet And Ssh For A Specific User?

Nov 12, 2010

I am looking for a way to deny telnet and ssh to one specific user. So far I've only tested with telnet and my attempts have been limited to various hosts.deny entries:

in.telnetd : user@server
in.telnetd : user@server.domain.com
in.telnetd : user@IP_address
in.telnetd : user@.domain.com

None of these work. The only thing I've found that does work is:in.telnetd : IP_addressBut this is only a semi-viable solution because we will soon have multiple logins for the one username from different servers and sub-nets. Ideally, I'd like to be able to deny telnet and ssh access to this username regardless of where the login originates. I suppose it would be possible to specify each server IP, but that'll be a bear to maintain

General :: Setting Permissions For Specific User And Groups?

May 25, 2010

i wonder, why nobody has written about it ...

How can i grant permission for files to specific user or specific group ??

Updated:

We have 3 groups: "g12" ("u1" and "u2), "g34" and "g56".

"g12" should only read the file.

"g34" should write and read it.

"g56" should have all permissions (rwx).

And others should not access the file at all.

I got an error saying I had to be root in order to do that But when I use the visudo -l option it shows that I have that privellege. Did I edit the file incorrectly?

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.
