Debian Configuration :: Default Colours In Console (no X)

Feb 13, 2011

I know that in an xterminal I can redefine the default colour with something like
!!red
URxvt.color1: rgb:cc/00/00
URxvt.color9: rgb:ef/29/29
Is it possible to do something similar in the Linux (framebuffer) console?

Debian Configuration :: Can't Use /bin/false As Shell For FTP Users?

Feb 2, 2010

I have vsftpd installed on my Debian (squeeze). I wish to let a local user (ftp) access the FTP server, but not login as normal user through SSH. In vsftpd.conf, I have enabed local user and chroot. I have also changed the shell of the local user (ftp) to /bin/false. The problem is that, I cannot login the FTP server from another computer (I login as "ftp" on a Windows machine). But when I change the shell of the local user (ftp) to /bin/sh, I can login the FTP successfully.

Is this the problem of Windows, or I should use something else instead of /bin/false if I want to prevent "ftp" login service other than FTP?

Debian Configuration :: NIS User Not Allowed Because Shell Does Not Exist

May 6, 2011

I have two machines running SQUEEZE, both installed and configured within the same week (not simultaneously). Both get the users info from a NIS server. In one of the machines (named "corona"), users cannot login, neither locally nor by ssh, in the other one ("xxlager") there is no problem. Both mount the users home directories by NFS. I have not found much useful info in the web. /etc/passwd, /etc/group/, /etc/shadow, are equally configured. The only difference I have found is when I use getent. Using "getent passwd isaenz" on xxlager yields:

isaenz:x:1001:1001:User Name,,,:/home/isaenz:/bin/tcsh
but on corona the result is
isaenz:x:1001:1001:User Name,,,:/home/isaenz:
so the shell info is empty.
Checking /var/log/auth.log I see a message saying:
"User isaenz not allowed because shell does not exist"

But "ypmatch isaenz passwd" returns complete information for isaenz, both on xxlager and corona.

Debian Configuration :: Change Prompt Color In Bash Shell?

Jan 13, 2010

I am getting more and more comfortable working with the shell, thus I would like to change its prompt color to my liking, as it will be easier for me to distinguish commands vs. outputs.

I've read a couple of instructions of how to change the .bashrc file and am familiar with what the codes in PS1 mean. Except, this file can be intimidating to newbie eyes.

Where exactly on the file is it that I need to make the change?

Here is what I am trying to do. I would like my prompt to like exactly like the prompt I use in Backtrack - which consist in two different colors, one for the host and another for the pwd. Here is what the Backtrack .bashrc file looks like:

# /etc/profile: This file contains system-wide defaults used by
# all Bourne (and related) shells.
# Set the values for some environment variables:
export MINICOM="-c on"
export MANPATH=/usr/local/man:/usr/man:/usr/X11R6/man:/usr/local/share/man:/usr/bin/man:/usr/share/man
export HOSTNAME="`cat /etc/HOSTNAME`"

[Code]....

I also read that in order to have the same results when I log in as root, I will have to copy the modified .bashrc file into /root

Debian :: Meaning Of Strange 'ls' Colours?

Mar 16, 2010

Anyone know what the 'ls' command means when it outputs the file name in red on black, with the permissions, owner, etc. all missing? The 'man' page was of no help. In the example below, from a DVD ROM, the third file was OK and I could read it. The first two could not be read, even as root.

?--------- ? ? ? ? /media/dvdrom/DVD_RTAV/VR_MANGR.BUP
?--------- ? ?? /media/dvdrom/DVD_RTAV/VR_MOVIE.VRO
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 132624 2007-09-20 02:18 VR_MANGR.IFO

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video File Colours Messed Up Every Time Restart?

Nov 12, 2010

every time I reboot and play a video file the colours are messed up. I need to manually increase then decrease the hue or saturation to get the picture to normal in smplayer. The colours aren't competely inversed as in the common bug with the totem sliders, they're just far too red and bright.Smplayer is the latest from PPA. I've checked the totem settings and everything is OK. It only takes two key presses to resolve but it's a pain, to be honest, so if anyone knows what causes this and how to fix it permanently I'd be much obliged.

Aug 23, 2010

I searched the menu-bar of gedit, i searched the web, i searched the help of gedit.(try a search on "change background to black for gedit" and similar and you know what i have gone through).If i use the embedded terminal in gedit (the only reason i use gedit at all) its background color is set to white.I barely can read it and it is useless.This is not a gnome-installation. Perhaps i miss a package needed ?

Debian Configuration :: Can't Copy A File From SMB Share To The Local File System

Aug 17, 2015

There is this bug in the latest version of Ubuntu, which is also Jessie, which is:

Can't copy a file from SMB share to the local file system: Software caused connection abort

The problem, apparently, is that newer versions of Samba hit servers with multiple requests at the same time, and for some reason the Zyxel and Iomega boxes can't handle this. The best solution they've come up with is to modify the smb.conf file on your server to include this setting: "max mux = 1".

Here is the reference material on this bug: [URL] ....

People who develop samba have fixed it in the latest version but neither the ubuntu nor Debian have released the fixed version of nautilus, as of yet. Here, is the reference: [URL] ....

Debian Multimedia :: Search File Contents From Gnome-Shell

Dec 16, 2014

I have tracker installed, and when I use "tracker-search ..." from terminal, I can find files as expected. In particular, it searches within file contents, not just the titles.

I was hoping to have similar functionality directly from gnome-shell. I've found a number of extensions to do this such as: [URL] .... but none of them work (gnome 3.14, debian Jessie).

How to set up file contents search directly from gnome in Jessie?

Debian Configuration :: How To Add A File To Initrd

Dec 13, 2015

I have an encrypted root and encrypted boot drive... To avoid entering a passphrase multiple times I'd like to add a keyfile for my root drive to my initrd... I've done this in Arch and it was relatively simple but I've hit a road block in debian finding the analog processes...

Code: Select all#Part 1) Generate the keyfile, give it suitable permissions and add it as a LUKS key:

dd bs=512 count=4 if=/dev/urandom of=/crypto_keyfile.bin
chmod 000 /crypto_keyfile.bin
chmod 600 /boot/initramfs-linux*
cryptsetup luksAddKey /dev/sdX# /crypto_keyfile.bin

[Code] ....

Code: Select allupdate-initramfs -v -k -u all

What is the analog to Part 2 (and Part 3 if I'm wrong about how to regenerate the initramfs...)??

Debian Configuration :: Samba - Add The Subtitle File

Aug 1, 2011

I'm using Xfce 4.8, which now provides built-in samba browing in thunar. This works like a charm. I can browse a samba share (external HD connecter to router via USB). Yet it appears to me now that the support is limited to thunar. I mean double clicking on a file allows me to open/edit that file if and only if the software itself has samba support. In practice, double-clicking on a movie opens it with vlc thanks to vlc's own smb support. Even then, I can't find a way to add the subtitle file. I reckon that to use the share transparently, I would need to mount it the "mount" way. Either on a mount point like /mnt/hard_drive or something like .gvfs/hard_drive.

Is my understanding correct ? Is that my only option? Considering the disk won't be switched on at startup, fstab is not the solution. Would gigolo be the right choice? I spent some time trying gigolo a few days ago, following an easy tuto found on the web and it didn't work as expected. If needed I could give it another try.

Debian Configuration :: Testing/Sid - ProFTPD - File Wrong?

Feb 26, 2010

I've been working on the setup of a FTP server on my Debian system for the whole afternoon. But I can't get it straight! Normally I get it working in just a second, but it's been a while I guess.

I installed only proftpd-basic and it's default dependencies. Should be enough right?

My configuration files are as follows:

I created the user zeitgeist, gave it a password, group and a homedir. Group of the user is nogroup and the homedir is correct with the 755 permission. My port 21 for FTP is open I tested it with nmap -p 21 [ip-address].

My Filezilla client tells me that at first he is connecting, then the connection is established, And then the connection is closed by server.

Debian Configuration :: /sbin/ifconfig: No Such File Or Directory

Aug 2, 2010

I am using Debian Lenny as my server to host multiple databases.

Whenever, I used to add a new database, I used to add an IP address like eth0:test in the /etc/network/interfaces file.

Today when I tried to do the same, I got an error when I tried to start the interface by typing "#ifup eth0:test". I also tried to do in this way "#ifconfig eth0:test up" but both of then yielded the same error saying "/sbin/ifconfig: no such file or directory".

The path is valid and the files are also present there. There are ifup, ifdown, if and ifconfig files in the /sbin directory. I also checked the permissions which is root:root. But still I cannot find the problem.

Debian Configuration :: Setting Up Home File Server?

Jan 3, 2011

I have 2 windows pc's in my home and an office computer that have my files strewn about. I wanted to have them all in one central location that keeps a backup copy, so i used an old machine to start building a file server. I installed debian 5.0 on the machine, command line interface only. I have gotten ssh working so that i can do all my work on the box from one of my windows pc's by logging in with putty.my current problem is how to easily use the box hard drive for storing my files in an easily accessible way. i'm still working on getting samba to work so that i could map the /home directory to a drive letter on my two home pc's, but i'd also like to access files from my work pc. Before i do that, though, i wanted to know if this is safe and secure to map a drive on a remote machine through the internet? Are there any other security concerns I need to be addressing by having this file server set up?

Debian Configuration :: Aptitude Update From Specific File?

Feb 18, 2011

I'm developing with puppet, and I need to do an aptitude update from a specific file, here is my configuration: The file sources.list in /etc/apt/ is deleted. I've created 3 files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d each one with their repos:

00-debian_sources.list
deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free

[code]....

All the repos are updated/refreshed , and I only want to refresh/update the specific repos insie of the file 01-debian_security_updates.list. On the other hand if I put some repos in the sources.list and delete the 3 files and I create an external file for example in /tmp/temprepo and I do the command aptitude update -o dir::etc::sourcelist=/tmp/temprepo it works fine.give some workaround to update and then upgrade packages from the files specified in my config.

Debian Configuration :: Configuring Sources.list File ?

May 19, 2011

About configuring my sources.list file.

The default file was:

To which I have added this: deb [url] stable all

Today I decided to include again Debian Volatile and discovered that it doesn't exist anymore and that I can get the same packages using this line: deb [url] squeeze-updates main

And the first question is: is this the same than debian-security?

Then, I decided to use [url] to make things less confused, and this was the output:

The first line is Ok. The second line, I guest it's the same than my second line. But, the third, is something different. So, the main question is: what is the difference between squeeze-proposed-updates and squeeze-updates? Are those repos completely separated from squeeze/updates (in security.debian.org)? And, what else should I add to have an always up-to-date and secure system?

Debian Configuration :: How To Import VPN Config Files With No File Extension

Feb 10, 2016

I've downloaded configuration files for my VPN, Kovurt, and they don't have a .ovpn file extension. Further, when I tried to enter the information manually (using this guide), I saw that the files only include the <ca> tags, and no <cert>, <key> or <tls-auth> tags.

Here is the content of one of the config files, simply named 'Tokyo' with no extension. (adding .ovpn didn't work either):

Code: Select allclient
dev tun
proto udp
remote 50.31.255.86 443
resolv-retry infinite
nobind

[Code] ....

I have an open ticket with Kovurt asking for the other info, but I know already that they don't have much in the way of documentation or support for Linux.

I need the wireless to work because now a bridged network from my windows laptop isn't working.
