Software :: KDE Shutdown (4.3.2) Makes A Big Show Of Logging Off - Other Sessions

Mar 19, 2010

My parents make me quickly turn off my comp every night, which isn't a problem, just hit kickoff->shutdown. But the thing is, when I have tty2 open to run a console session, or if someone is on by ssh, KDE (4.3.2) makes a big show of logging off, but when it does log off, I have to hit a dialog (these users are still logged on). I was wondering if I could just turn that message off. If so, how?

Ubuntu :: Computer Makes A Buzz Sound On System Shutdown And Restart

May 3, 2010

For some time now, my laptop makes a quick but loud buzz sound when I shutdown or restart it. Muting my sounds doesn't fix it. Before, it didn't do this. It just started one day and got worse till it happened everytime I shutdown or restart.

Going to preferences > sounds > changing sound theme to no sounds helped a bit and after doing this, it doesn't happen all the time anymore. This is quite disturbing especially when I'm in libraries. What worries me the most though is that it might affect my speaker.

I'm using Karmic btw.

General :: Link Terminal Sessions - Show Logged In As The Same User?

Jun 7, 2011

I was doing some rather lengthy procedures using a terminal. Then I wrote script using Kate, and input it into that terminal, and then realized that I was logged in as a normal user in that terminal as opposed to a superuser, which is how I was logged in at the other terminal. I've never noticed this before because I've never done anything that takes this long.

Is there any way to link all terminal sessions in such a way that they all show me logged in as the same user? I don't even know if this is even important, but I don't want to risk losing any things that I had done.

Server :: Shutdown The Nodes From The Master Terminal Using "shutdown -h Now" Get Shutdown?

Dec 10, 2010

I have installed a cluster computer with 10 nodes . The manufacturer is HP . All nodes and the master node have redhat enterprise linux installed in them . When I shutdown the nodes from the master terminal using "shutdown -h now" they get shutdown . But they dont get completely turned off . This issue bothers me when the power supply is given , all nodes boot up simultaneously generating a huge heat .

Thing to note : When we shutdown our PC they get completely turned off . When the power supply is given , a press on the Power On button is required to boot the system. But , why does it not happpen in the case of cluster? Is there any other way of completely turning off the nodes from the master terminal ?

General :: Locate Shutdown Log For Linux Shutdown (RHL 5.1-2.6.18-53.el5PAE)

Apr 22, 2010

I cannot locate shutdown log for Linux shutdown to check various activities carried out during shutdown. I can view Startup Log which is availble on console>Applications>System Tools>System Logs.

I have included Shutdown/Startup in dbora, so that Oracle 10gR2 Shutdown/Startup will be automated during OS Shutdown/Startup.

I want to check Shutdown log because Oracle Shutdown was not running, as from $ORACLE_HOME/shutdown.log contains no entries, where as startup log contains latest startup details.

That means here 2 issues are there. One, I want to locate OS Shutdown Log and the other being Why Oracle Shutdown not getting executed.

General :: Evolution Does Not Show Content Of Inbox Or Sent But Does Show Other Folders

Apr 28, 2011

I configured it to use IMAP to access our exchange 2010 server front end on a LAN connection. Our webmail connection is segregated behind Forefront, so it was not connecting/authing that way. Even though smartphones have no problem. (sidenote, is there an activesync linux mail client ?)

I have many root folders and several folders underneath my inbox. total mailsize in inbox is 3.5 GB without subfolders. The sent is likewise as large. And is likewise empty.

Things I checked already:
View is all
Folder subscription is on and local copy is on

More info:
Thunderbird worky fine.
But thunderbird is missing calender
Tried adding lightening, but it won't add into thunderbird.
Will try finding a diff add on, or if anyone knows how to get lightening into thunderbird 3.1.8 on ubuntu 10 that would be great as well.

for example if I want to create a an "Empty File", I'll right-click on desktop and when I want to go to "Create Document" menu, it doesn't show up! so I must click somewhere else and try again so for the second time it works!!

OpenSUSE Install :: OpenSUSE 11.4 Delayed Shutdown While Pressing The Shutdown Button?

Mar 12, 2011

I did a live upgrade from 11.3 KDE and observe a following issue.When I press the shutdown button on the laptop it initiates the shutdown and shuts down fine but after a significant delay of time (something like 30 seconds). When I click the shutdown button in KDE it initiates the shutdown instantly. This was not the case in 11.3 where the shutdown worked the same regardless of the method that triggered it

Ubuntu :: Can't Login - No Sessions Available?

Oct 17, 2010

I have Lucid Lynx 10.04 installed on my eee 900ha and I'm unable to log in to my desktop.

Earlier today I logged in successfully and I uninstalled a couple of unused programs (pitivi, evolution, fspot, and another that I can't remember). I then shut down the computer. Later when I booted the computer back up, I was greeted with the usual ubuntu login screen but I noticed that there were no options in the sessions drop-up menu. I entered my login information and pressed enter, and the screen went black, then went back to the login screen again.

I'm using gnome.

I have two Debian boxes, A and B. I would like that a window (for example vlc, or whatever) displays on both A and B. The process (i.e., the X11 client) runs on A.

General :: Shutting Down PC Without Killing SSH Sessions?

Aug 10, 2010

I have some heavy, long processes running on remote Linux machines. I use my laptop to SSH to these machine and run the processes from my couch.

BUT, when I want to shutdown my laptop, I am in trouble since the remote processes are killed.

I did my research and found out that "screen" is a great solution for me, it is! (As long as I don't SHUTDOWN my laptop). Isn't there a way to "persist" the "screen" sessions so I can shut it down and then re-attach to a session?

Ubuntu :: Different Gnome Sessions For VNC Display?

May 31, 2010

i have tightVNCserver running to provide me with a means of working on my machine whilst the wife watches mythTV on the (physical) display.

in 8.04 i used to have "gnome-panel &" as a line in my /home/mike/.vnc/xstartup file, and it worked fine, when i logged in via VNC i had a nice gnome panel to start apps from etc.

since 10.04 this stopped working and i had to change gnome-panel to gnome-session. this works... but now it loads everything up in the VNC window just like it does in my main window. this is a problem because it loads things like mythTV front end and so on... i don't want it to do that in my VNC window.

does anyone know how it might be possible for me to have two different 'types' of gnome session? Settings i change in System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications are common to both my VNC and my physical displays so i can't turn off mythTVfrontend in there to solve the problem.

i'm not sure why gnome-panel stopped working in my xstartup file, but it happened when i upgraded from 8.04 to 10.04. if i try it in the ugly xterm window on VNC i get:


Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":1.0".

** (gnome-panel:26161): WARNING **: Cannot register the panel shell: cannot connect to the session bus. the RANDR stuff i get when i launch gnome-session too so i think its the second bit that's the real problem.

Ubuntu :: Will It Be Possible To Maintain Multiple Sessions

Oct 4, 2010

Will it be possible to maintain multiple sessions from Ubuntu?Actually we are working on one open source application and we have setup this application on one of our Ubuntu machine and this would act as a server for other developer's windows machine. Is any utility available(preferable open source) using which we will be able to access the Ubuntu server from all 4-5 developer's Windows machines?

Our requirement will be to access the whole system including console and GUI (same like remotely access) by using different sessions so that all 4-5 developers can start work together on the same Ubuntu machine.
