Ubuntu :: Create A Command That Can Be Typed In Any Old Terminal Window And Display Screen For Anyone Who Typed It

May 24, 2011

i want to create a command that can be typed in any old terminal window that would display a message on screen for anyone who typed it. is this possible? i just want to do this for the randomness of it.
and cuz i need to get used to messing with terminal windows.

for example i would like to have "rawr" setup as a command to display a message on screen in a popup window with an "Ok" button to close the popup. i googled it but all i came up with was creating commands to launch applications without having to type the full path/command. not what i'm looking for. thanks in advance!!!

Debian Multimedia :: Type "xlock" In A Terminal And It Would Lock The Screen Until Came Back And Typed Password?

Feb 10, 2011

When I was using AntiX, I liked how I could just type "xlock" in a terminal and it would lock the screen until I came back and typed my password. I saw that there was no "xlock" package, so googling around, I saw it was replaced with xlockmore and xlockmore-gl, neither of which there seems to be a package for in the Squeeze repositories. I tried xscreensaver, but I prefer the simplicity of xlock (and I like that it doesn't leave a daemon runnig when not in use). Is there a way to safely install it, or should I just be looking for an alternative?

Slackware :: Start A Terminal With Pre-typed Text?

Apr 17, 2011

Does anyone have tips for starting a virtual-terminal with pre-typed text?

This starts 'xterm' and keeps open at desired directory:

xterm -title installed software packages -e 'cd /var/log/packages && /bin/bash'

But I want to be even more lazier and have 'ls | grep -i ' already pre-typed so I can quickly search/ls packages by name.

david@slackware13:/var/log/packages$ ls | grep -i <READY FOR MY TEXT>

david@slackware13:/var/log/packages$ ls | grep -i CALC

Programming :: Create Doc Comments In Vim Using Pre-typed Text?

Jul 5, 2011

I currently have a set up in vim so that when I type "<leader>ns" it takes any given word and turns it into a sub "sub word(){}". I also have it when I type "<leader>nc" it creates a doc comment section that is "blank". I was wondering if someone could help me out with combining the two so that when I typed <leader>ns it would create the doc comments with the word already in the Subroutine: line and create the new sub routine aswell. I'm trying to understand what I have (downloaded from the internet) and only doing so so.

" Put cursor over word and hit ,ns to create new Sub
nmap <leader>nc o

Fedora Security :: Accidentaly Typed Password In The Terminal?

Nov 30, 2010

It does happen occasionally that I type a password in the wrong place or at the wrong time when I'm working with multiple terminal windows. It's not a frequent occurrence but sometimes it does indeed occur (most recently as an argument to g++ instead of the password prompt to scp).Would you guys consider it adequate to clear the view with "clear" and the history with "history -c" or should I change my password after such a mishap? I realize that this should probably not be a problem with my computer at home as I'm the only user but when I log onto school (where we mostly use ubuntu, solaris) would the same precautions be enough?

Ubuntu :: Typed Page To PDF / DVI

Mar 29, 2010

Does anyone know of any (GNU) software that can scan in letters that have been typed, and encode the text to unicode/ASCII/etc. I've looked for "Handrwriting recognition" (figuring if some software can interpret handwriting it could interpret typewriter text) in the Ubuntu software center and on an internet search, but all the hits are for tablet and stylus type programs.

Ubuntu :: Alt Key / Tool Run To Examine The Key Strokes As They Are Typed?

Jan 13, 2010

Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit on Dell XPS 8000

This one is really busting my balloons. I have been running my new machine for a couple of weeks now. I have either beaten most issues into submission or come up with work arounds or just learned to live with them. Except for this one...

About once a day, I cannot duplicate the circumstances, my Alt key ceases to function in Ubuntu. My left hand has over the years evolved into a specialized tool which presses Alt-Tab and Alt-F4 instinctively. When these do not work it is driving me nuts.

I have determined that this is not a hardware issue. I generally have a VMWare virtual machine running and Alt-Tab and other Alt key combinations work in the VM at the same time as they are not working on the host.

I must at a minimum logout and back in get the Alt key to be recognized again in the host.

Is there a tool which I can run to examine the key strokes as they are typed? something like the keyboard tester which runs during installation?

General :: Create A New Terminal Window From The Command Line In RHEL 5.3

May 18, 2011

I use putty to get to my RHEL 5.3 workstation from my Windows laptop.

Typically, if I want a new terminal on my windows 7 workstation from another terminal or mc, I have to type start and I will see a new terminal window running the default shell.

QUESTION : What is the equivalent command in RHEL 5.3 (and or solaris) to create a new terminal window from the command line ? I will be entering this command from the shell prompt or mc's command line.

In Windows, if I want to start another terminal and in that terminal, I want to run a program, I can do "start program.exe arg1 arg2". this will create a new terminal window and runs program.exe in that terminal window. I don't have to create a terminal and then in a separate step run the program. How can I do this in Linux ?

Ubuntu :: 10.4 - Setting Default Terminal Window Size To Screen Width

Oct 3, 2010

In 10.4 I had set my default terminal size to my screen width - I type some long commands. After running an update this morning, my terminal comes up in the install default size. Using the preferences dialog, I cannot find the control to set the default width. Has it been removed? I hope I'm looking in the wrong place, but I have a chilling feeling that it's been dropped or perhaps just accidentally commented out.
