Fedora :: Start And Stop Script With Screensaver

May 26, 2009

I would like to start and stop rtorrent based on my screensaver. I used to do this awhile ago with ubuntu and still have my script. However now I am using Fedora with KDE and the script no longer seems to work.

#!/usr/bin/perl
#gnome
my $cmd = "dbus-monitor --session "type='signal',interface='org.gnome.ScreenSaver',member='SessionIdleChanged'"";
open (IN, "$cmd |");
while (<IN>) {
if (m/^s+boolean true/) {
#when screensaver activates, run the following commands
#system("/home/eric/compiled/scripts/rtorrentstart");
system("touch /home/asoukenka/rtorrenthasstarted");
} elsif (m/^s+boolean false/) {
#when screensaver deactivates, run the following commands
#system("kill `pgrep rtorrent`");
system("touch /home/asoukenka/rtorrenthasbeenkilled"); } }

Fedora Security :: User Access To Start And Stop Tomcat But Also Gives User Access To Start And Stop Other Services "/etc/sudoers"

Mar 13, 2009

I am trying to give access to ONE single user to start and shutdown tomcat server. The problem being, when I enter syntax: username ALL= /etc/init.d/tomcat5, /usr/local/tomcat/webapps, PASSWD:ALL This gives the user access to start and stop tomcat but also gives user access to start and stop other services within /etc/init.d - such as httpd etc... What is the proper way to give user access to start and stop service, and limiting that power to only one service....

Ubuntu :: Install WINE Screensaver In Gnome-screensaver Possible?

May 19, 2010

There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.

Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..

Red Hat :: Informix Start - Stop Along

Mar 4, 2009

I'm trying to start/stop Informix along with my linux os start/stop. For this I've made a test script in order to test this but I'm facing a problem. The service is starting along with the system but when I'm stopping (rebooting) the system it doesn't run the "K10test" script.

After sistem reboot you can see that the /etc/init.d/test stop is not executed.

Ubuntu :: USB Transfers Stop / Start In 10.04

May 30, 2010

When copying files to USB drives, the file progress bar moves it 'bursts', sometimes doing nothing for long periods, then moving forward quickly and stopping again.It's almost like it is showing the transfer to the cache, not the transfer to the actual drive.

Debian :: Unable To Start / Stop Lightdm

Apr 4, 2016

I'm running Debian 8.4 on a Lenovo W500 laptop and I recently upgraded from kernel version 3.2.0-4 to 3.16.0-4. Since then I encounter issues with lightdm (I suppose) which manifest themselves in two different scenarios:

1) scenario 1: lightdm fails to start.Instead of showing the graphical login screen, the system boots into terminal. Lightdm seems to be running, but I can't enter the X-Session (Alt+Ctrl+F7 doesn't work), nor can I restart the lightdm via

Code: Select all# service lightdm stop
# service lightdm start

dmesg shows the following (I've only pasted the end of dmesg):
Code: Select all[  240.100071] INFO: task kworker/0:2:39 blocked for more than 120 seconds.
[  240.106512]       Not tainted 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1
[  240.112956] "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this message.
[  240.119494] kworker/0:2     D ffff880155155a48     0    39      2 0x00000000

[code].....

and /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log shows errors of type
Code: Select allGtk-CRITICAL: gtk_container_foreach: assertion 'GTK_IS_CONTAINER (container)' failed

when I then try to shutdown via
Code: Select all# shutdown -h now

the OS gets stuck on a message of the form
Code: Select allirq 17: nobody cared

and eventually I have to force a shutdown by holding the poweroff button.scenario 2: lightdm starts, but can't be stopped/In this case I can login and use the system as usual, but when I try to shutdown either via # shutdown -h now, or via the GUI or the power button, the system gets stuck and I have to force a shutdown by holding the poweroff button.It seems that people had similar issues on other distros (see e.g.: URL... but there doesn't seem to be a good fix so far. I can for now solve the issue by downgrading the kernel to 3.2.0-4, but I was wondering if there is a permanent fix.

General :: Screen Start / Stop Script With Name?

Sep 24, 2010

I use a centos VPS with 1gb memory and enough space and brandwidth (if this info is off any use). What I want to achieve is that I can start and quit a process that is running in a screen, with using a script.

Like start.sh that does "screen serverapp1"
and stop.sh that does "kill serverapp1"

I already tried something like that, but it didn't work. The kill command only works with process ID's and that one is variable.

Networking :: How To Stop / Start Network In Ubuntu 10.04

Jul 18, 2010

This should not be this difficult. I have a plain install of Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit with a wired network card. It picks up a private IP address from my router. It has an app called NetworkManager Applet 0.8 in the notification area of the panel. If I right click on this app and select "Disconnect" it does. ifconfig shows that the IP address is gone. I can then right click on the app again and "Auto eht0 and I am connected again and ifconfig shows the IP address restored. So far, so good. I was testing a crossover cable to see how fast I could transfer files to/from my server - both machines have gigabit cards but my switch is only 100 Mb.

I unplugged the PC from the router, hooked up the crossover cable to the server and found that I had no connectivity - the IP address was gone. Not wanting to mess with hard configuring IP addresses for the moment I connected the PC back to the router. When I unplugged the cable the app showed the networking disconnected icon. I tried right clicking on the app and unchecking [ ] Enable Networking then rechecking it. This works on my netbook running Ubuntu 9.04. No luck on 10.04 (and I had not tried the Auto eht0 as described above - did not discover that until later). So then I tried to fix it from the command line.

ken@taylor12:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking start
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service networking start

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an Upstart job, you may also use the start(8) utility, e.g.
start networking
networking stop/waiting.

So I then tried
ken@taylor12:~$ sudo service networking start
networking stop/waiting
but still no connectivity. A reboot got things back in order.

Then I did a little more testing.
ken@taylor12:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking stop
* Deconfiguring network interfaces...
Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.
and I am still connected.

Editing Connections within the NetworkManager Applet shows "Auto eth0 - last used never" even though I have used it. [Edit] Auto eth0 via the app appears to show information about my wired NIC.

ifconfig shows eht0 as active
ken@taylor12:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:64:e8:18:2c

Software :: Start And Stop Xscreensaver From Cronjob?

Sep 5, 2010

Im running ubuntu 10.04 lts. Ive been struggling with automating a screensaver to come on and off at shceduled times. all is working fine except I cannot seem to get xscreensaver to start from cron. when i run it manually i need to use:

xscreensaver & and then hit enter. I'm not sure whats happening as i only get the line that it ran in my logs but no error. i am using xset to turn the display power on and off, then xscreensaver-command -activate and deactivate, after loading the xscreensaver daemon. everything automated works fine except starting xscreensaver daemon. if i run the same commands manually it works fine. if i leave the xscreensaver daemon running and shutoff display with xset it will come on again unless i kill xscreensaver. fyi what im trying to do: my linux file/web/music server is on a tablet netbook and i flipped the screen around and am trying to also use it as a digital picture frame. which works fine, i just dnt want to run it needlessly 24/7

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Upgrade - MySQL 5.1 Does Not Want To Start Or Stop

Apr 30, 2010

I upgraded from Kubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. 32 bit. The install had not finished as it barked at tripwire config. I have had to stop it and continue from command prompt. More or less the install went OK. After the install, mysql 5.1 does not want to start or stop. Commands
/etc/init.d/mysql stop ( or 'stop mysql' , or service mysql stop' )
/etc/init.d/mysql start

Do not finish - do not return to command prompt. No log messages insyslog or mysql logs. Say, I do 'service mysql start', the command does not return, I click Ctrl+C, then repeat the command. This displays :
'start: Job is already running: mysql'.
Of course mysql is not running. I've tried to remove and reinstall the packages. No result. There is 'stop mysql' command in one of install scripts that hangs.
