Debian :: Use Screen To Execute A File With A Certain Session Name Instead Of Just Numbers?

Feb 11, 2011

I'd like to use screen to execute a file with a certain session name instead of just numbers... or at least have a more permanent name, I'd like to be able to use it all in one command though. So I can put it into a script.Also: is there a way I can remove or change what comes up at the debian login screen so instead of debain 5.0 I can make it say something else? Also when I login the message that comes up is a little annoying, is there a way I could remove or change that too?

Ubuntu Servers :: Restrict User Session Numbers And Allow Resuming Previous User Session?

Jun 30, 2010

I am currently in a project to set up an LTSP server with 10 thin clients. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic).

Installing server and booting clients are working fine. Now, according to the need, I have to restrict user session numbers and allow resuming previous user session.

I have achieved to do the first one, but still could not able to setup the second one. As per requirement, if some thin can have power failure, the same session should be restored back. I am confused here, if I need to focus on saving xsessions or saving gnome sessions. I am looking for a concrete solution as I am running out of time.

Software :: Redirect ALL Terminal Output To File And Screen (for Entire Session)?

Jul 6, 2010

Is there one command that will let me record an entire terminal session (with any possible errors) to a text file while also seeing all output on screen too? I know it can be done for individual commands, but I'm looking to do this for an entire session where the individual commands will be normal (i.e., not piped into tee, etc.). It would be even better if the command prompt is captured too. The obvious utility of this makes me think someone surely has come up with a solution long ago (probably in the 60's).(I'm sure it goes without saying, but subsequent output in that session should be appended to the file. The file should contain the full history, with all output and errors, of the session.)

Debian :: Screen Session Loses Write Privileges After Logging Out?

Sep 11, 2010

When I start a screen session over SSH, I can edit and save files from within the screen session before I log out of the SSH session. But after I log out and log back in, I find that the screen session has lost write privileges, so that I can no longer edit or create any files, even within my home directory. How do I prevent this from happening?

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Run Mojosetup - Unable To Execute SH File

Dec 7, 2015

I'm not so expert using Debian (3.2.68), especially when it comes to install stuff... I tried to execute for the first time a *.sh 451mb file, but it displayed that:

Code: Select allroot@Poulpe:/home/ambroise# sh

It seems that mojosetup is an open software included for all recent GOG games, but maybe it can't run on Debian ? Or could it be more a directory issue ?

Debian Programming :: Script To Execute String From Text File

Sep 24, 2014

I am having trouble writing a script that monitors a text file. When the file contains number 1 (or any other string that is not a command) it does nothing, but when it is something different from 1, it executes that command.

So, there are 2 files: monitor.mon - this is the file that will be checked constanlty; and - the script that does the job. The monitor.mon file will have its content modified by php. This means a web page will have a form where I input commands and writes does commands in the file. will watch when the file's content changes from character 1 to a command, execute that command and write back a 1 so it will not execute it more times.

I tried combining while and if but with no success. Tried reading the file with cat and grep -e but it doesn't seem to recognize when content changes.

Debian :: Execute Command Mactime In Order To Control Changes Made To The File System?

I am trying to execute command mactime in order to control changes made to the file system, but I am getting an error. I am running the shell as root, and it is the first time I run the command in this system - Debian Squeeze up to date. The I/O is as follows:

The first three lines of output are the ones that are worrying at the moment; I am not concerned with the last. Although error messages suggest the programs date, hostname and uname do not exist in /bin directory, they are available as shown by

Software :: Open Screen As Daemon Will Not Execute Command Unless Screen Is Opened?

Aug 5, 2011

In a nut shell, I have a program called OpenSim which is a 3D virtual world emulator. My ISP provides me with dynamic DNS so I have written a program that compares my external IP to the IP in a file called Regions.ini that OpenSim uses to go out to the Internet. If the IP's are different then I need to change the entry in the Regions.ini file and reboot OpenSim. The program works except for the fail safe I put in in case OpenSim crashes during shutdown which happens one in a while.Here is the code:Quote:

Programming :: Extract 2 Numbers From A Same File?

Dec 22, 2010

I am trying to extract 2 numbers from a same file and my goal is to print them both in another file, on the same line, separated with a space. I have to do that for 20 files and I would like to have therefore 20 lines like this in the output file. It would look like this :


number1_file1 number2_file1
number1_file2 number2_file2
number_1_file20 number2_file20

So far, I did only extract one number and got an output file like this :



And I did this by running a bash script with the following content :


ls execution$1$2*.* | while read filename
cat $filename | grep -e "Total aborts:" | cut -d " " -f3 >> abort$1$2.dat

$1 and $2 are just strings to identify the different files I want to consider in this loop. This script works well to extract a number which is the 3rd field of a line starting with "Total aborts:".Now, how could I change this script to do what I mentioned above (i.e. extracting two numbers from two different lines) ? The second number is the 3rd field of a line starting with "Total throughput:"

Ubuntu :: Script Or Program To Export Numbers Into A .txt File?

Apr 19, 2011

I am working on a project but it consist of a large amount of numbers. I have tried using OpenOffice to produce this list of numbers but it keeps crashing when I reach a certain point. So I was looking for some help. I need to see if someone could either help me with using a script or program to export these numbers into a .txt file or if someone could just make the list for me.

I am looking for a text file that will have the numbers 1000000000 to 9999999999 in order. I understand this is a large amount of numbers but this something I don't have the time to just do manually and each time I try to do it with OpenOffice it crashes around 1009000001. Oh and I need the text file to look like this:

General :: DU Style Directory Listing With File Numbers

Sep 6, 2010

Is there a command to return a recursive listing of sub-directories and the number of files in them? I have found plenty of ways to give me the total number of files in a directory structure, but none that gives a list of the sub-directories with the number of files in them. "du" gives me a listing of directories with their sizes, but I couldn't find an option (or any other way) to give me the number of files as well. Ideally, I'd like to get list with "Size" "Files" "Dir name" - And the order of the columns doesn't matter. Is there a "simple" command line solution or do I need a shell script for that?

General :: Replace Sequential Numbers In A File With A Different Sequence Using Sed?

I am trying to find a way to replace a set of sequential numbers in a file with a different sequence using sed. This might be done easier using awk or some sort of bash script, but it seems to me there must be a way to do this easily with sed. Basically, what I am editing is a Cisco switch config. I want to change the sequence of ports to a different numbered sequence. Here is an example of what I am trying to do.I want to change for example, the file:

Ubuntu :: Bin Ash Shell - Creates A File With Name Of The Value $available_blocks Instead Of Using The '>' Sign For Comparing The 2 Numbers

I don't think its a problem with the if. When i use that code it creates a file with name of the value $available_blocks instead of using the '>' sign for comparing the 2 numbers.
