SUSE :: Keyboard Command To Highlight Pointer In KDE?

Jul 2, 2010

In GNOME there's an option to highlight your mouse when you press CTRL so that it's easier to find. That's a great function for me, because I work with several screens simultaneously. I really like KDE; does anybody know how to do the same thing in KDE or at least something similar? I haven't been able to find anything in Google.

General :: Highlight Console Output - Any Command / Tool?

Oct 13, 2010

when I use e. g. cat file.txt | grep --color=tty "pattern" I get the pattern I search highlighted. When I want some more context around each hit, grep has the -A, -B and -C parameters. However, I want to display the whole file (or whatever command output) and highlight a certain pattern. Does such a highlight command or tool exist?

Software :: Possible To Move Mouse Pointer Commands On A Standard Keyboard?

Jul 29, 2010

As you know it is possible to move the mouse pointer with the numlock keys on a standard keyboard. I would like to know what are the commands for moving the pointer up, down, right, and left? I plan to reprogram different keys/shortcuts to do those mouse functions instead of the numlock keys.

Slackware :: On KDE Log-in Screen Mouse Pointer And Keyboard Input Not Acknowledged

Oct 10, 2010

I just recently installed Slackware onto a virtual machine(I'm planning on buying a new disc drive and 1 TB HDD with-in the next couple of months and plan on Slackware being my primary OS[right now Mac OS X 10.6 is]), and everything went great.

I then went onto edit the /etc/inittab file in emacs and changed the run-level to 4. I don't know why it's decided that I'd want to boot into KDE when XFCE is installed and in the configuration I selected XFCE but it's not really relevant(I have a WM guide thing open in another tab and will probably be able to change it).

The problem is, as the vague title may suggest, is that it basically freezes when I'm at the log-in screen. The input field for the username is highlighted and blinking, and the cursor it self is visible in the centre of the screen, but it simply doesn't pick up on any input from my keyboard or mouse.

I tried booting up the install CD and logging in as root, mounting sda4(which is the root partition) and editing said file but sudo isn't installed(to my knowledge) on the install disc and when I do the command,

SUSE :: No Keyboard On 11?

Jun 1, 2010

After working fine for a year or so, I suddenly have no keyboard after the GRUB boot screen either on normal Linux start-up or fail safe. The computer is dual boot with Vista and the keyboard works fine on Vista. The keyboard is PS2

that also does not recognise key presses and I cannot get into Yast either because of the need for a password.. Linux security is all very well, but it is a serious pain...

I have a second dual boot machine alongside and I assume that if I knew the keyboard driver filename and location, I could copy it across. Is that too simple?

SUSE :: Command To Compare Directorys ?

Jun 17, 2010

A long time ago I came here with a query about comparing directory structures so that I could ensure I had 2 copies of all of my mp3's - 1 in high quality and 1 in portable quality. The original thread is here [url]

Now time has moved on I have begun to encode to flac, and I want to find and delete any mp3's that I now have as flac.

The problem is, the file names are not always identical AND the extensions are different, meaning the command in the previous thread doesn't get me very far.

The music is stored in the format of /home/music/mp3/Artist/Album/ and /home/music/flac/Artist/Album/ if I could just get a list of all the "album" subfolders which are duplicated I could work the rest by hand.

SUSE :: Unable To Get A Program To Run From The Command Line?

Nov 9, 2010

I have reinstalled Suse 10.1 as dual-boot with Windows XP. I am now unable to get a program to run from the Linux command line. I am familiar with the program and have had it running previously when the machine was Linux-only. Everything else, e.g.Firefox and Office, work fine in Suse.


The problem occurs with all commands - not just this one. is in green on the screen so I assume I should be able to run it - I have never had any problem when it was installed previously.

Have a bit of a dilemma I'm trying to track down. Have a user using both date and ps commands with & at the end of the line in a shell script. When he runs the script, it waits until he hits ENTER to get back to a prompt. Other times he doesn't. Also, I've noticed that this will sometimes happen, then immediately rerun the script and the behavior stops.
