Fedora :: How To Run Scripts From Gnome Launcher Not In The Terminal
Feb 17, 2011
I want to use the Gnome Launcher to launch a script I made but it will only work if I select "Application in Terminal." It will not launch if I use "Application". I've also noticed that my script will only run in the terminal regardless of how I launch it. Fedora will not let me just double click the file and "Run" the script. I don't want to open a terminal every time I run the script.
Our office housing keeping guy sat on my linux (Fedora 7) system and somehow removed the main panel. By panel I mean where all the menus are there - Applications, Places, System etc. and contains a tab for every running application. I brought back the panel but now I don't see the terminal launcher and I can't find it anywhere.It used to be there in "Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal" but now the System Tools option itself is not present there. System -> Preferences -> Look and Feel -> Main Menu. There one System option is unchecked but I can't check it and apply. I am logged in as root.
How do I create a launcher/shortcut on Gnome desktop, which starts a Terminal window and executes a shell script?The script should execute as if I started the script manually, i.e. if I abort the script by pressing CTRL + C, the script should terminate but the terminal window should remain on screen.If I create the shell script launcher/shortcut using the �straight forward �Create Launcher� method�, the terminal window also closes when I hit CTRL + C
i was wondering, and maybe hoping, if there was any way i can create a launcher to open a program that must be ran in terminal for it to run. i don't really like opening terminal and going to the program's location to launch it, so is there any way for this to work?
shell scripting and launchers. i need to make a launcher for launching terminal, runing in it some commands and after completion i need to close terminal window.in terminal i need tu run such commands:
$fpc test.pas $./test
and then it would be nice that the terminal automaticaly closes
I made gnome launchers (shortcut or what they are called). I selected them : opened by terminal (with some simple commands). The problem is that I have 3 command lines and don't want to use 3 icons (launchers) to execute them. If I edit my launcer on gedit, I get this kind of lines :
I upgraded to 11.04. All went well, until I (stupidly) enable the desktop cube. And my launcher dissapeared. How do I get into terminal, and once there how do I dissable compiz? unity --reset?I tried CTRL-ALT-T and that doesn't workCTRL-ALT-F1 brings up a screen that aks me to log in but won't accept my login info.
Command automatically in gnome terminal, when i open it. so i changed the setting in edit->profile preferences->title and the command->command section. now when i open the terminal,command is running successfully.afterwards terminal is closed automatically. how to open my terminal prompt.with the sl program running and not closed..
I am using Fedora 8, gnome, a tcsh login shell, and I would like to have my directories and files color coded when I use ls. I have been searching the internet far and wide today looking for ways to do this. I have tried all the ways I could find: edit .bsrc file, edit DIR_COLORS, edit DIR_COLORS.xterm, create .dircolors, edit etc/profile, edit .cshrc file, alias ls --colors, and all combinations of this. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.I use su in my terminal I get the colors for ls. So there must be something up with my user profile? I have tried to edit my terminal profiles and my desktop themes neither worked. Please help! I know this is a trivial issue, but now I am on a mission to figure this out.
I run a program by executing this command in a terminal screen.Code:coco@coco-desktop:~/Escritorio/MO_1.10/MagnumOpus$ java -jar MagnumOpus.jarSince it is a bit tedious, I tried to create a launcher. I copied the above code into the Command box. The launcher is created, but fails to run the program. Instead I get an error message.
When I launch terminal it tries to run bash first.I get the following messages in the terminal window..bash: /home/myfolder/appfolder/setup.sh:sion Deniedmyname@computername:~$This started after I installed an application from within appfolder.How can I remove/stop this bash from executing when I launch
Recently Banshee won't start up all the way. If I just start it from the Unity launcher I get a blank white screen which will eventually stop responding. If I run Banshee from a terminal I get this output:

I created a new panel in Gnome (Fedora 12) and it wasn't showing up right. So I just told it to make another (with the same results), and finally one more. So with the two that are there by default, that's 5 total panels... None of the newly created panels where displaying at all. But after creating the last one the system froze up. Now when I try to boot into fedora my system locks up as it's trying to load GNOME...
Is there any way for me to remove those panels through BASH? So I can just boot to a prompt and get them removed. After that I imagine GNOME will load correctly again...
I'm using FC15 and Xfce4 desktop, as gnome3 does not work well with my ATI 5770HD graphics card and the proprietary catalyst 11.4 driver.When I start gnome-terminal from xfce, there is some (animation?) and the gnome terminal appears normal size then shrinks horizontally.Is there a way to disable this re-sizing ?
I'm having Ubuntu Kramic Koala and i want to create a custom application launcher on the panel so when it is clicked it should open a terminal window and run the following command and then show the output for 5 secs and then closes the terminal... how can i do this?
Code: cat /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode && sleep 5
the above command is what i want to be executed at time of running the custom application launcher. if i paste the command in a terminal, it will show the output for 5 secs and then terminates... that's almost what i want. what i exactly want is that, i want it to work like when i click on the shortcut launcher, it should open a terminal and then exectues that command, show the output for 5 sec, pause, and then exits the teriminal.
Using the following command: xterm -e tail -f stdout.log
I can see the log of an applications and it's update in realtime. I want to uninstall the gnome and I'm looking for the equivalent command for the terminal. I want on startup tty4 for example to show me the log.
I am using the X server of Fedora 7 for displaying my application.I am getting the display as I need but I dont want the title bar of gnome terminal titlebar to be displayed.I also dont want the maximize,minimize buttons to be displayed.
I have been using Fedora 11 for some time and I ran into a major problem today. I had installed some packages by yum (especially bacula-related) and erased them. Now I can't use gnome-terminal as root. Quote:
[webman@localhost ~]$ su - Password: su: incorrect password
The password is correct, but it is not accepted as such.
I use an ancient text editor - Jove - that I maintain and update myself. It has worked fine on Fedora 6, 7 and 8 under gnome-terminal (known to the Jove editor as xterm). I just installed Fedora 12. When moving around a file being edited, the cursor often 'replicates' itself into a series of blocks (or underlines, depending on the cursor type setting) that seem to correspond to tab-stops. I initially thought it was stumbling on TABs, but it does this weirdness on long strings of blanks, as well. Clearing and redrawing the screen cleans things up until the next movement command.
I _intensively_ checked the code for anything that might be sensitive to the new termcap strings that have come with F12, but nothing. I could live with this if the underline cursor blinked so that I could SEE it in text, but alas, there ain't a blinking cursor. Just found out how to get the cursor blinking on another thread. But, I'd _still_ like go get the 'block' to work right. I compared the termcaps used by Jove in LF8 and LF9 and they were identical. Since the "7-block-wide" cursor bug happens in LF9, 10, 11, and 12 but not in LF8, I can confidently conclude that support for termcap/terminfo has been broken as of Fedora 9. And people ask me why I have four computers. (So I can run F8 F9 and F12 and compare their performance!).
I had Emacs installed in Fedora 11 and want to run it text-mode,but everytime when I type emacs command in gnome terminal,an emacs graphical window pop up. I want to emacs to back to text-mode by typing M-x text-mode, and it doesn't work.Can emacs run in text-mode in X11 environment?
I have a 'special script' in my .bashrc file, which I want to be performed only at Login. When I open a terminal (through a gnome launcher <gnome-terminal> as the command) it unfortunately sources .bashrc.
Hence the opening of the terminal runs the 'special script' again.
How can I instruct .bashrc not to do something except when and only when I am logging in? I found a segment of code which is supposed to do what I want but I am not sure of how it works.
Will this work to put my 'special script' in to ensure that it only runs when it is a login script and not when it is a simple launcher terminal opening?
