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

General :: Ubuntu / Sudo Also Doesn't Work
I have ubuntu server 8.x which works Ok but the other day I changed the owner of some files "the directory /etc" from root me. Now a lot commands do not work like reboot and such. So I tried to put ownership back to root and I can't. I say I dont have proper privilege. Sudo also doesn't work. I conect to the server using ssh with putty. What could I do to fix the problem? Update to the new version? This server has been working really well for a few years. The reason I changed the owner of the directory to myself is so I could edit some config files from my windows machine using a FTP client like WinSCP.

General :: Why Doesn't 'sudo Gedit' Work In Vinagre
I've set up a low cost box with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx at home behind a router, and managed to get remote access running. My goal is to be able to host a small website and work on it remotely, so I isntalled ftp (vsftpd). When I tried to edit the vsftpd.conf file in Vinagre from work, I could only open it read-only, no surprise. When I tried 'sudo gedit' or 'sudo gedit /etc/vsftpd.conf' from terminal in Vinagre, I received the prompt for the password to elevate privileges (again, expected); however, after I hit Enter, nothing happens. I've tried a bunch of different things, but I can't get it to work. I can stop & start my ftp service with 'sudo service vsftpd stop/start' and it seems to work fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: "Error Booting Operating System" - Sudo Grub; Root (hd0.0)...) Doesn't Work
I installed 10.04 (clean install) on a 250G drive (partitioned to 107G for the system files). It was working fine, until I wanted to install Window$ for the use of Adobe stuff. I popped the Windows XP disc in, it loaded its files, then I tried to choose a partition for installation. There was an error saying that I can't do that, and needed to delete a partition blah blah. I thought it was too much trouble, so I quit and just wanted to use my 10.04. Booted, and it says "Error booting operating system" I WAS SHOCKED.

I tried to install grub (but don't need that right? I DO NOT want to dual boot now), but the usual method ( the sudo grub; root (hd0.0)...) doesn't work ,because something like "stage1" is missing. I tried many methods by still the same error. The reason I do not want a clean install is that I did many fixes on my 10.04 so that it would work with my EeePC 1001pxd, and I do not want to go through that again. I will be checking my email frequently on other computers if I have a chance.

General :: "sudo Su - Someuser -c Xterm" Doesn't Work
I have a user A that need to log into a linux box, change to user B, and then fire up a GUI.

I've tried this:


[userA@server ~]$ sudo su - userB -c "xterm"
X connection to localhost:10.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).

Running "echo $DISPLAY" shows the same value for user A as for user B when I first run "sudo su - userB". I thought that if the $DISPLAY variable is set correctly this would work, but apparently it doesn't. Does anyone else here know how to get this working?

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I'm SSH-ing into the server, and have x-forwading enabled.

Ubuntu :: Bash Sudo Scripts Fail To Work After Install Of 10.04
I had some bash scripts on Ubuntu 09.10 (mint version) that fail to work on Ubuntu 10.04. The line that fails is the following:

Code: # cat file_with_my-password.txt > sudo -S something cat: invalid option -- 'S' Try `cat --help' for more information. In my case "something" mounts some filesystems (that fail to load from fstab - bios "fake" raid 10), but I get the same error for any sudo command. It is the same script that used to work under 09.04 :-/

Ubuntu :: Install Boost Library - Sudo Apt-get Libboost Didn't Work
Trying to install e4rat that was on LifeHacker on Friday and have zero idea what I am doing. I have the e4rat extracted to a directory in /usr/local/src The README says that there are dependencies including boost library components. I am fine installing the whole boost library but sudo apt-get install libboost* did not work.


I tried to bang around a little to try to learn something with this but can't get any further.

OpenSUSE Install :: Multiboot System, But Last Bootloader Install Doesn't Work?
I've got a multiboot system with Windozin the first drive and first partition like everyone recommends. I have several distro's and just let them install their bootloaders, but always on hd0 mbr. I installed Debian 5.0.1 this way and it wouldn't boot, so I got SGD to "fix" it, which it said was successful, but all I get is a partition doesn't exist when I try to boot. I put Debian on /dev/sdb3, I loaded Linux Rescueand mounted sdb3 and verified that its menu.lst had the right boot numbers (hd1,2). fdisk even showns /dev/sdb3 as boot as shown by the asterisk under the boot column. Should I do a complete reinstall of grub, maybe using one of the other distro's as the holder of grub? At one time they did all the grub launching as each addition was made

OpenSUSE Install :: Revert The Changes Or Change The Permissions Again To Root:root Or Make Sudo Work
Accidentally I changed the ownership of all the directories under / to my own instead of root:root. Now I am unable to use sudo and many bad things are happening. Is there a way to revert the changes or change the permissions again to root:root or make sudo work ?

Ubuntu :: Restoring EEE PC After Install. F9 Doesn't Work?
I have a 904HA that I am taking to Argentina for my mother to use and video chat with me. It occurred to me though that since I am a total linux newbie, it would be hell for me to setup a PPPOE account as they limit their DSL usage. Last time I was there they used proprietary windows only software. So having said that,need to restore my EEEPC to windows.Unfortunately in the process of installing linux I broke the restore?I didn't delete the restore partition but now when I hit f9 or f10 etc, it doesn't bring up the restore partition.I remember I had a similar problem before and I solved it but I don't remember how.

Ubuntu :: New Install, Keyboard Doesn't Work
Windows crapped out on me (not surprisingly) and I am using Ubuntu to transfer all of my files to an external hard drive. However, when the computer loads the Ubuntu disk I get to a language selection menu, but my keyboard doesn't work. It won't let me make any sort of selection, and the 30 second timer eventually times out and my system just restarts and the process starts all over again.

I've tried plugging my keyboard in to all of the different USB ports on my computer, but still nothing. The strange thing is that the keyboard works just fine when I changed the BIOS settings to boot from the cd-rom... it just doesn't work when Ubuntu is ready to run..

OpenSUSE Install :: USB Doesn't Work At All Once
As stated, NO USB functions, not at all, the light on the mouse is on, but it does not move on screen, the PS2 keyboard does not function either. Nothing that would allow you to install it, works at all. I am absolutely shocked not one single person on here has mentioned this.

The last time I tried OpenSuse was version 10, it installed without issue, I noted the installer as the nicest one in the Linux world I had seen to date, only to be utterly let down by this USB fumble.I have Legacy USB support, Legacy Keyboard and Legacy Mouse USB support on, that isn't the issue, and this didn't happen with 10 on the same system.

Fedora :: Software Updater Doesn't Work After Install From FTP / Fix It?
I successfully installed FC5 from FTP. But when I click on the Software Updater or the Package Manager on the menu, both just sit and spin, indicating they are retrieving software information. If I had done the install from CD, this wouldn't be a problem. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix it?
