Software :: Running MPlayer DVDnav Option From Command Line?

Jun 27, 2010

I am having a problem with running the mplayer dvdnav option from the command line or terminal. I run the command and this is what I get:

mplayer -nocache dvdnav://1 /media/CDROM /dev/scd1
MPlayer SVN-r1.0~rc3+svn20090426-4.4.3 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team

Playing dvdnav://1.
No stream found to handle url dvdnav://1
Playing /media/CDROM.
File not found: '/media/CDROM'

I went on the forums and they say that some of the packages built to support dvdnav are out of date and that they should be updated. By the way I am running ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx with lxde as my desktop manager.

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 And Command Line Scripts - Error - Android: Command Not Found

Mar 26, 2011

I know my way around MS Windows much better, but I just don't feel right trying to program something for Android on a Microsoft operating system. I am interested in Android programming so I followed the instructions on [URL] to install the environment on my computer...

I just installed the JDK, SDK, Eclipse successfully (or I assume):

* When I get to Step 4 where I'm supposed to run 'android' it will not run. I get the error message "android: command not found" (I am definitely in the right directory).

** When I double-click it in nautilus, it opens up in gedit. I can set the permissions in nautilus (through the properties - Allow executing file as a program) and get it to work,

My system:

Intel i7
Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat
android-sdk-linux-x86
eclipse 3.6.2

General :: Bash Dirs Command And +N Option?

Feb 8, 2011

I'm trying to use the dirs command with the +N option. The manual says: dirs [-clpv] [+n] [-n]Without options, displays the list of currently remembered directories. The default display is on a single line with directory names separated by spaces. Direc- tories are added to the list with the pushd command; the popd command removes entries from the list. +n Displays the nth entry counting from the left of the list shown by dirs when invoked without options, starting with zero.

dirs -v shows:
0 /dir1/
1 /dir2/
2 /dir3/

However, dir +n 1, dir +N 1, dir -v +n 1, dir -v +N 1 all give:

General :: Unzip Command: Option To Force Overwrite?

Jan 26, 2010

I am writing a shell script that unzips a ZIP file into an existing hierarchy of files, potentially overwriting some of the files. The problem is that the unzip command asks for confirmation: replace jsp/extension/add-aspect.jsp? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename: y

This is unacceptable for a script.I need an option to force unzip to overwrite the files.I did not find in the man page nor with Google.

General :: When Extract The Tarball - Forgot The '-C' Option Of The Command 'tar'

Apr 23, 2010

I tried to install gfortran on my computer. When I extract the tarball, I forgot the '-C' option of the command 'tar', which should be added, according to the instruction of installation.

That is to say, I wrote in the mp directory:

Then, the tarball creates a '/usr' directory under '/tmp' directory, and it contains only a /local directory, which contains only a /gfortran directory.

The thing is, when I modify the name of this directory, for example, from /usr to /usr-modi, I found that the name of the directory /usr under the root directory is also changed from /usr to /usr-modi.

How can I delete this annoying /usr directory under /tmp, without tragically affect /usr under the root directory?

General :: Use '{}' To Redirect Output Of A Command Run Through Find's -exec Option?

Jan 10, 2011

I am trying to automate an svnadmin dump command for a backup script, and I want to do something like this:

find /var/svn/* ( ! -name dir -prune ) -type d -exec svnadmin dump {} > {}.svn ;

This seems to work, in that it looks through each svn repository in /var/svn, and runs svnadmin dump on it.

However, the second {} in the exec command doesn't get substituted for the name of the directory being processed. It basically just results a single file named {}.svn.

I suspect that this is because the shell interprets > to end the find command, and it tries redirecting stdout from that command to the file named {}.svn.

General :: Trying To Use Run Level 3 Through Command Line

Mar 30, 2011

I was trying to learn more about xorg configuration and came through an exercise that should be run at run level 3. So, I wrote init 3 in the command line then the x server stopped and the system was trying to enter run level 3 but then it hangs and nothing happens. At that time I was connected to the system via putty and wrote the command init 5 and the x server started again normally. I tried init 3 again and had the same thing.
