I just installed TuxGuitar - very cool - and to get the sound to work I had to install Timidity++ as well. Before I start TuxGuitar I have to execute:timidity -iA -Osin a terminal window first, which is kind of a pain to do every time I run TuxGuitar.How do I get this line to execute on startup such that timidity is running when I start up? I tried adding that line to rc.local
I need to auto-mount a storage device AND execute a program passing mount point path to it. How can i do this? I'd like to avoid polling for new storage devices. I'm looking for something like acpid for ACPI events, but working with storage plug events instead.
On my local network, I use my Linux machine running dhcpd and IP masquerade as a gateway to the internet. As it is, the setup works just fine, and I've enabled dhcpd in all runlevels in the services dialog, but for some reason, it still does not automatically start when I boot the machine. If I select it and click "Start", it operates normally, and if I run "services dhcpd start" from a command line, that works too. My only guess is that it's some problem with my config file... it's the same setup I used with previous versions of Fedora without issues, but maybe things have changed?
my eth0 connection is not automatically connected when fedora starts. I checked " activate device when windows starts" in network configuration. still it is not auto connecting and after connection the network icon is not changing to connected status although it is connected.
I have USB Modem ZTE AC2726 . I am always Connect using Wvvdial or Network Manager , it Works Fine , But I want to do that when computer Booting it can auto start but i can�t do this . i have use many rules such as /etc/rc.local or udev rules to failure .I am using Fedora 14.
Problem I have is the Samba server, it does not seem to start up the shares at boot.When I boot the system, nothing is available on the network, I have to run the Samba Server Configuration Tool everytime I want to access a share, edit a share, save and quit, then my network shares become available.I see Starting SMB services during boot up, it says OK.It worked good on Fedora13.
I'm currently running SUSE 11.1 and trying to start Amavis so I can use Kmail. I have just run the latest updates via Yast. I'm getting the following when I try to start Amavis: /etc/init.d/amavis start returned 7 (program is not running):
I have a couple of encrypted external hard drives that I have to mount with realcrypt.The thing is, to start realcrypt I always need to put in my root password, which is kind of a drag.I have combed the internet for information and the most sensible solutions always pointed to do a visudo edit.There were a few things I tried, but none of them seem to work.This is the last iteration - I put in all realcrypt files i could find, which I suppose shouldn't be necessary but desperate times call for desperate measures, right?
I'm trying to find how to schedule a process to start at a specific time (not on start up). How would I schedule a process/application to start at a specific time (if it matters, it will be a background process). For instance, have process abc start every weekday at 5am. I've done this for windows many times though have only been using linux regularly for a few months and haven't figured out the best way of doing this.
So far the best solution I have is to create a program that will start on boot and have it check the time and sleep until the required time and then start the required process(es) at the required time(s). But this seems more of a hack since I'd expect there to be a proper way of doing this.
I want to monitor my work on the terminal.I know we can use script command.But every time when I start the terminal, I have to type script to start it.I want to automate it. So where should I include this command so that it will start as soon as I start the terminal ?
MY WORK TILL NOW: I have put this "script" command in the .profile.The when I start the terminal, it became an INFINITE LOOP.I am able to "echo".Thats coming only once.....but if I write a "script" command then it is becoming an INFINITE LOOP.
I'm running Fedora 15, and am trying to run a program that uses gsoap/soapcpp2 2.7.17 to communicate with different parts of the program. As far as I know everything has compiled correctly and I am using the same versions of the required libraries as several working installations. However, every single time the program tries to open a port, the program is unable to do so. This happens no matter what port I specify.
if there is anything in fedora that would limit or disable the ability of the program to open a port to start communicating. I have tried disabling the firewall with no change to the behaviour.
I know 10.4 is not final but I am running it and loving it. I am trying to have synergyc start and be working at the logon box of ubuntu 10.4. I can get it to autostart after the user is logged in. But I want it to be working before the user is logged in. how I can do this with 10.4
I'm on Natty, but this was a problem for me on Maverick as well. Since my mouse is way too fast in Ubuntu even on the slowest settings (a topic for another discussion), I run a shell script at startup to fix this. Of course, the script is only run when I log into my account. Is there a way to have this script run at system start so that it affects all users? I already tried copying my fixmouse.sh script to /usr/share/gdm/autostart/ to no avail. If it's germane to the discussion, here are the contents of fixmouse.h:
I have a "time-server". It's sending time to different devices through different ports/protocols. The problem is that it has no operator and that makes some extra difficulties.
Now when i try to start it using terminal Code: Select allsudo ./myprogram works fine and
Code: Select all./myprogram doesn't work.
It is so because without sudo i have no access to ports. As a result If i add my program to System->Preferences->Startup Applications it has the same problem. So i need to start it as root, auto-start, right after auto-login to system but without entering password cause nobody will do it.
Also I need to start ntpd but it also asks password sometimes I've tried googles but it offer a few ways with entering password that isn't suitable for me or writing some scripts/changing system files but with no example I'm afraid to break it all. So is there a way to start Myprogram and NTPD as root with no password entering?
My system is Debian 6.0.10 Squeeze, Kernel 2.6.32-5-686
Every time I reboot my linux machine I have to set up 5 or 6 terminals and Im trying to find a way to do this automatically. Bind a script to a shortcut or on startup that starts several terminals (extra point if theyre tabbed) and have each terminal ssh to different servers.
I broke PulseAudio accidentally, when I was trying to fix something else. I'm not sure what I did, but PulseAudio no longer starts automatically when I log in. That means I get no sound. I can start the PulseAudio daemon manually by running:
at the command line, but I also have to go into sound preferences and select the correct hardware (Audigy 2 ZS card) instead of my motherboard's sound device (which is not connected to my speakers) to get sound back. How do I make all that happen automatically?
I am setting up a streaming audio server. I would like to have Darkice and sc_serv (Shoutcast server) start automagically on boot.
I have set Xubuntu (10.04) to auto login
Both Darkice and sc_serv are command line apps and I would like them to each run in their own terminal window so I can monitor any status messages they produce. For instance sc_serv displays connections disconnections with time connected, and current number of listeners, and I want to see that.
One important note: sc_serv must be up and running before Darkice can be started.
I usually add torrents to transmission through my iPhone. I have Transmission watch the 'Attachments' folder in my Dropbox. I also have Transmission auto add the torrent and delete the torrent file when done. Thing is if I don't have Transmission running when I add the torrent to my dropbox folder. Transmission doesn't start up to download the torrent. Is there a script that can watch for torrent files in my Dropbox folder that I can run in Scheduled Tasks to run every 5 min or so. Also when I have it up and running and I do have auto add on. It auto adds it to transmission but then the popup dialog appears to ask if I just want to download one of the files from the torrent or all 10. Is there a way to bypass this?
I have it set up to start my music player (RBox) and torrent program (Transmission) when I log in. The problem is all my data is set on my 1TB external hard drive, because my internal hard drive only has 80GBs of space. When I start up the programs open but the external hasn't had time to link the file directories which messes screws up my torrents into having to verify every time and my music has to "recalibrate" as it were.
This isn't an issue when I manually open the programs after a minute or so but what my question really comes down to is... Is there a way to delay an automatic startup? Say, run application 3 minutes into boot up?
I have created a RAID 5 array using the built in Disk Utility.This is great and formatted it with ext4, and mounted it.However on reboot in Disk Utility as RAID Array is not running and under state Not running, partially assembled.I have to stop the array then restart it, then mount it before I can access what is on it.Obviously this is not very good as I often have the system shutdown at night to converse energy, and having to do this every time it boots is a pain.Could someone please explain in plain english what I need to go to get my array to start and mount on startup
Previously work normal. Started from some time ago, after reboot the server, the network card cannot be automatically started. Need to go into YAST's wired network which will activate the network card. Having checked 'chkconfig', the 'network' is on. Where can I check if they is any error log about auto enabling the network card?
