Feb 28, 2010
I am using debian 5.04(base) + lxde. I am using gdm to login. I want to change the gdm to commandline login only, which similar to (ctrl +alt + f2) but whenever computer restart, it boot into gdm. what is the file to change the boot level?
is there a way to change the gdm login screen (either the background image or the text in the login window) from the command line?i'd like to check several things at boot and report that on the gdm login screnn.
Few day back I have installed fedora 15 in my system with gnome desktop environment. when i was using fedora 11 I used to login via command line by changing the /etc/inittab from run level 5 to run level 3 . once if i login when ever i need GUI, simply i will type startx command , but when i tried to change the runlevel in fedora 15 , It was confusing to me , there is no 1,2,3 is there . how can i change to command mode login in fedora 15..?
Basically, I need a command line solution for sending an HTTP POST request essentially clicking on a button. For future reference, it'd be helpful to know how to send a POST request with, say, a username and password if I ever find myself in that situation in another hotel or airport.
I have a Debian Linux desktop. I want to change the screen's brightness without pressing the brightness button of my monitor. How can I do this? is this possible in command line or is there an application to be installed?
OS: CentOS 5.3 Enterprise Server Red Hat Nash Version 18.104.22.168
I need to find a command-line program to randomly change my MAC address. I know on Ubuntu there is a program called 'macchanger'. And on Windows another one called 'macshift'. I just can't find one for CentOS 5.3 Enterprise Edition.
I would like to open the file manager by command line using sudo, but I just can't remember the name of it!! I can "almost" remember it... but it escapes me. And I am afraid I don't know where to look for it.
I made a live USB memory stick / pendrive with Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 using my desktop computer. I want to install / update my netbook that has no network function yet. I booted the desktop with the pendrive & ran update manager. I want to update the kernel so I will have the driver that will operate my netbook ethernet.Acer AOD260 has Ethernet Controller: AR8151 v1.1 Fast Ethernet, Atheros Communications & Network Controller: Broadcom 4727 (rev 01)and will not work from the current release of 10.04 (too new) but there are supposed to be drivers in the newer kernels.
Running Update Manager I get a box labeled "Debconf on ubuntu" & says "Configuring grub-pc". There is an entry box that says "linux command line:" & is empty. When I press the help button I get the message "The following Linux command line was extracted from /etc/default/grub of the 'kopt' parameter in GRUB Legacy's menu.lst. Please verify that is correct, and modify it if necessary.The installer is hanging, Preconfiguring packages ..., probably waiting for a response, but I have no idea what to do.
openSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 release 2.I can change the desktop theme and the splash theme, but I can not change the KDM login manager theme.First, I changed th setting /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME from suse to nothing in Yast -> /etc/sysconfig editor in order to get rid of the ugly Suse login theme.That resulted in having the traditional KDM login theme with the clock.I go to Personal Settings -> Advanced tab -> System: Login Manager (I enter the root password).In tab "General" I checked "Use themed greeter". Gui style and color scheme are set to default.In tab "Theme" I select a theme, click apply, then clikc ok.I log out and log in again. Nothing has changed. I still have the oldstyle KDM login theme.
I have installed the astercc box it is running by centos 5.2 and i want to add some text to the " login page " i dont know how its called but when i start the pc when everything is been loaded it ask for the user and password And in top of it i want add tekst there,
I was expecting a gnome window login prompt after installation was done. Instead I am getting a command line login prompt.Am I right expecting a X-Windows login prompt?I login successfully, but I am dropped into a shell (bash) instead of a gnome desktop.
The hardware I am installing on: Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GB Ram 137 GB HD Radeon X1300/X1550 Series Monitor - Dell E156FP (max res 1024x768 60 Hz)
I have used the below command to do that successfully for the previous version of ububunt, but this time I failed to do that with Ubuntu 9.10. I know I can do that manually by "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop" command. I try to change the name of /etc/init.d/gdm files, but the problem still exist.m"sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove"
I decided to dual boot install Ubuntu with my Windows 7. After a lot of hair pulling, i finally managed to boot the live cd environment with "nomodeset". From there i installed ubuntu. When it finished installing, i booted to the new ubuntu install only to be presented with a command line login. If i change the boot line from "quiet splash" to "nomodeset", i can coax ubuntu to boot in low graphics mode. However this is not a permanent fix, and doing so causes a 2 inch offest of the screen on the right hand side. Only the have the missing 2 inches appear on the left side. If from the "Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode" message, i select "console login", and type "startx" i just comes out with "X Server Fatal error- No Screens found". I also tried:
But it still didn't help. I'm running out if ideas here, can anyone point me in the right direction?
This is a cd that i got free from Canonical themselves. It's Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I have Intel Integrated Graphics.
I have Fedora 14 with minimal installation (without graphical interface and so on) and the application I've been working needs to be initialized on boot up. So, I need to disable the login prompt (and password) by command line. How can I do it? I've seen by GUI, but with command line nothing...
A few days ago I installed a fresh ubuntu 10.04 LTS without the X-Server (only cli) and I'm looking for a good Download Manager for rapidshare and megaupload free account that work with WebUI. I tried a some software :
- FatRat (doesnt work without X-Server) - Slimrat (doest have actualy a web ui) - Plowshare (no WebUI)
I understand the basics, where certain files are located, how to change basic things, and very basic stuff with the command line (I use it to organize my files mainly). If at all possible could you supply me with a guide - be a website or a book to:
1) Just the general layout of the system (whats in the depth of the /etc folder and what naught)
2) How to more efficiently use the command line. As in where I am not giving in and using the GUI all the time.
3) What programming language(s) should I learn. I am thinking C and Python to start.
I decided to install Chromium OS to my dad's netbook, and it works perfectly. The only problem is that i can't change the time. Luckily, I can access a command line by pressing CTRL+ALT+T. So maybe I can change it from the command line.
I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.4 and for various reasons I found myself selecting a KDE session without KDE being installed. This has locked me into a situation where I can't boot up/log in properly. I can get to a command line and start the x environment as root. How can I re-set any user's preferences to default (via the CL)? Ie, I'd like to re-set a user (myself) so that I can again choose the log in to a gnome session.
I have installed opensuse on VirutalBox , during installation I said "yes" to autologin as normal user.After installation and restart , it shows follwing message "Logging in Laks ...Cannot enter home directory . using /"I can login as single user by passing "single " in grub.
I want to change the default command line editor from vim to nano, so for example when I type "visudo", I want it to user nano. In Ubuntu this can be easily done by using "update-alternatives --config editor", but openUSE doesn't have an editor-option
