Fedora :: Run (not Run In Terminal) Bash Script With Sudo In It?

Jul 6, 2010

I have written a tiny script which switches between 2 CPU frequency throttling governors. Now I need to assign it to a shorcut key though "Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts".

Here is the script:

Code:

#!/bin/bash
if [ `cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor` = 'ondemand' ]
then

[code]....

As you can see this script involves sudo. I know that usually running commands with sudo requires "Run in Terminal" option for a shortcut, but in "Keyboard Shortcuts->Add" there is no option to run command in terminal. When I double click on the script and choose "Run in Terminal", then it functions as it should. How can I make this script execute by doing "Run" and not "Run in Termnal"?

Ubuntu :: Creating A Text File To Start Up Sudo Bash Without Going To The Terminal?

Feb 26, 2011

I just set up apache on my PC and I cant change the permissions by right clicking because "I'm not the owner" and instead of using the chmod command on every file that I would like to edit I would just like to write a script on a text file, save it to my desktop so all I have to do is double click on it and boom I can edit all my files, etc.

Fedora Security :: Terminal Equivalent Of "sudo" Is It Still Sudo/KDEsudo

May 29, 2010

I am new to fedora (been using debian based distro's for the longest time). With the new release I decided to give FC13 (The kde 64 bit spin) a try. I told it to wipe my entire hdd and encrypt the partitions. The partition manager made a few LVM partitions which I assume are encrypted.

The problem I am having is that if I attempt to use an application that would normally need root access to run, I am not prompted to enter my root password. Instead, I am required to logout and log back in as root. Is there a way to make it so that FC13 will prompt me to enter in my root password so I do not need to log in and out? Or is there something Different I should have done during the install process? Also, what is the terminal equivalent of "sudo" in fedora, or is it still sudo/KDEsudo

I also have not used SE Linux before. Do I need to manually enforce the permissions for my applications and generate my own profiles for it, or is that done automatically?

Fedora :: Terminal Comes Up As Csh Not Bash

Apr 20, 2011

I wanted to change my $PATH and my prompt, had some trouble with setting and exporting the variables and found that the shell was csh instead of the bash which I expected. I worked around it by creating a .cshrc which calls bash but don't know what caused the change. I've got as far as seeing that the gnome-terminal command kicks it all off from the Applications>System Tools menu but what happens between there and the terminal popping up?

Fedora :: Bash Cannot Set Terminal Process Group

Nov 17, 2009

Urgent: on reboot, the Fedora 11 lower bars reach about 70-80%, then I get the message:

/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root: (There are 22 inodes containing multiply-claimed blocks.)
File /home/burnie/.thumbnails/normal/[bunchofhexits].png (inode #15826, mod time Mon Nov 2 04:24:26 2009) has 13 multiply-claimed blocks, shared with 1 file:

[code]....

Just in case this is relevant, yesterday I spent several hours attempting (and failing) to build IcedTea in order to run a Java web service that required it. After the failure occurred, I exited Linux and went to Windows Vista to run the web service, and found that Vista cannot support 64-bit Firefox, so I rebooted to Linux, and ran make clean on the Iced Tea installation, which balked because a stamps directory could not be deleted because it was not empty; I followed this by make distclean which made the same complaint. So I manually deleted the files in the stamps subdirectory, ran make distclean "cleanly", and then rebooted to reach my current very unsatisfactory state.

Ubuntu :: Bash Broken, Lost Functionality In Terminal (gnome-terminal)?

Dec 10, 2010

Linux-goers. I did some research on this, but I am still fairly new to Linux. In Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick), I accidentally overwrote my "/bin/bash" file. Dude, using "sudo" with a small typo can work disasters. Bash is now broken in the Terminal (gnome-terminal). Terminal itself still works fine, technically, but bash is still hosed/broken. Here is what I did to try to fix it: Booted from Ubuntu 10.10 live CD. Mounted my Ubuntu partition and manually copied the good/fresh "bash" file onto my hard drive. Verified copy was successful. Didn't help, as you see. Reinstalled "gnome-terminal" using synaptic package manager. Tried to reinstall bash via synaptic, it failed with error, "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/bash_4.1-2ubuntu4_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 2"

In Terminal, all basic commands work as far as I can tell. ("ls", "pwd", navigation, etc.) Here are some problems:My "username@computername" does not display in the prompt; only the $ sign. Bash keyboard shortcuts such as uparrow and tab do not work. Instead, each inserts a key code. I can't even move the cursor left/right. Aliases (a function of bash and .bashrc) are broken, of course. My sanity level decreases when I use Terminal now. For what it's worth, even with "sudo" I get a "permission denied" error when trying to run Google Chrome! I read something about a ".bashrc" file being a possible problem, but I don't know how to make it work, or the file's proper locations in Ubuntu 10.10. Is there something I can do with a "make" or "apt-get install" command or something?? Could this simply be a permissions problem? Is the link to "/bin/bash", "/bin/sh", or a ".bashrc" file broken? Guide me, oh Linux gurus.

P.S. I always wondered what exactly bash was and how it was different from the basic terminal. LoL, this is an excellent way to demonstrate the difference, and I WANT IT BACK!

Programming :: SU And Sudo Within Bash Script

Oct 27, 2010

I'm working on a script which handles disaster recovery for a system I'm developing. Part of the script will also be used for initial setup. It needs to require as little user interaction as possible. It also needs to be run as root during most of the process. The problem is that there comes a point where some of the software can't be compiled or installed as root. So root needs to su to a regular user who then has to sudo in order to compile & install the aforementioned software. After all this, the script needs to revert to it's original state, running as root. I've never encountered a situation where root had to su to a normal user in order to sudo as root.

Fedora Security :: Cannot Open /var/db/sudo After Sudo Package Upgrade?

Sep 16, 2010

A day ago I finally got around to upgrading the PackageKit installation that had been sitting for a week and a half, so I found a new upgrade for sudo available - the one that gives the sudoreplay command, I forget which version number it is exactly. When I try to use the sudo command I get this notice in my terminal:Code:Can't open /var/db/sudo/me/1: Permission deniedI didn't get it before. What do I have to do to make it open? I'm using SELinux in enforcing mode if that helps.

Debian :: Can't Sign In Using Sudo In Terminal

Jul 23, 2010

I'm having trouble signing in using the sudo in the terminal.

I enter in the line: sudo abc (username = abc)

I get the line returned: [sudo] password for abc:

If I enter my normal login pw i get the message:

abc is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

If I enter the root pw I get the message: Sorry, try again.

I've just set up the debian OS and am trying to learn the linux way but it's a bit frustrating. so when I set up the system originally It had me make two passwords one for root and one for my user acct. So how do I get the sudo terminal to work?

Ubuntu :: Bash Sudo Scripts Fail To Work After Install Of 10.04

Aug 4, 2010

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 :-/

Programming :: Bash Scripting With Sudo / Password Prompt And Accepting User Input?

Jul 30, 2011

I'm creating a bash script to do some tasks for me. I would like the script to be run at a set time of everyday. My first question is if it is possible that if one of the commands in the script requires sudo, is there a way to get around it with out making sudo not require a password. Such as, is there a way to include the password in the script? If that is the case, I can always just set the file as read only by sudo. I've been looking for a way to do this, with no success. if I have a command that wants input, how do I give it to the program. For example, if I want to make a zip file that is encrypted, the command would go as:

Code:

zip -r example * -e

now how would I get the script to insert my wanted password.

Ubuntu :: No Internet Connection Unless Run Command In Terminal - Sudo Dhclient Eth0

Feb 21, 2011

Running 10.04. For some reason, starting today, I have no internet connection unless I run this command in terminal - sudo dhclient eth0. I have a hard wired ethernet connection on a Desktop PC with a static IP address (there are a number of devices in the house) and it has been running 100% for months and months. Why suddenly do I have to enter this command to get connection? When I switch on I get a connection in that when I click on the Top Panel icon and right click Connection Information it tells me I have an active connection to my router on the normal IP address. I cannot ping the router and Firefox says Server not found. After sudo dhclient eth0 everything works - what has happened since yesterday evening and this morning to stop what has been 100% for months?

General :: Bash - Using Terminal Vs KDE?

Mar 18, 2010

Im used to using nautilus within centos but have recently just got a VPS and quickly realising that using a KDE is unacceptable in this environment. Although I do find it so much quicker doing things like folder permissions in KDE rather than typing it all out in the terminal? Everyone I speak to says, use the terminal and I should learn this way as opposed to using the KDE, but theres certain things I just dont get

How is it possible to make quick changes to scripts and viewing them in a browser etc , without a mouse or using KDE? and only using a terminal?? I am wondering how to develop websites just using the terminal?

How can it be quicker to type out/view permissions etc in the terminal when its instant and just a few clicks in the KDE?
