Ubuntu :: Text Terminal Unreadable - Can't Start Gdm Even After Memorizing The Process Of Logging In And Starting Gdm

Jul 9, 2010

My terminal text is unreadable. Where as the default output would usually fill half the screen it probably fills around 1/20th now. Basically it looks like the text is 1px in size. I was about to install a graphics driver (nvidia) but doh I can't see what I'm typing... I can't start gdm even after memorising the process of logging in and starting gdm (I think gdm is failing to start anyway) I'm using the default xorg.conf provided with the LiveCD;

Ubuntu :: Emerald Themes Don't Stay After Terminal Is Closed?

Jun 10, 2010

I have instaled compiz fusion and emerald. I understand through research that there is a bug in Emerald that requires the use of terminal to activate a new theme specifically typing the following text at the command line: emerald --replace.

When I do this the theme changes. However when I close the terminal it reverts back to the gnome default theme. What do I need to do to keep the Emerald theme changes. Previously I added the following to the start preferences: fusion-icon --no-start

Red Hat / Fedora :: Terminal - 'unable To Read Input Images'

Apr 28, 2010

1.) Whenever i am starting a new instance of terminal, it is giving messages 'unable to read input images' five times. Actually i had run a shell script that gave this message, but why is it appearing every time, i am opening a new terminal, (that script is already over and it generated the required outputs)? Because of this, when i run 'ls' command, it is showing all the files and directories with the same color, otherwise it used to show them in different colors.

2.) Once my panel had crashed, then i have made a new panel, but after that my instant messenger icon is no more keeps sitting on the system tray as it used to do before, it closes as i close its window otherwise even after closing the window, it used to keep me logged in and the icon use to be there at system tray.

3.) automount for usbdrive not working? Note: all these problems are there only in my own user account. Other user account like root and guest has everything correct.

Fedora Networking :: Cannot Start GNS3 Gnome-terminal In F13

Nov 18, 2010

I've tried to access the console in vain. Every time I try to, I get this message


Cannot start gnome-terminal -t R1 -e 'telnet 2000' > /dev/nul/2>&1 &:No such file or directory

Then i decided to use the xterm client instead. But still didn't work


Cannot start xterm -T R1 -e 'telnet 2000' >/dev/null 2>&1 &: No such file or directory

The last option I had was using Kconsole (linux kde) but still it doesn't work. And i get the same error message

Ubuntu Installation :: Starting After Removing Pulseaudio - Use Terminal To Re-introduce?

Jun 13, 2011

In a desperate attempt to overcome frequent crashing accompanied by XLog lines that suggest to me that Pulseaudio is the cause, I removed Pulsaudio from my Ubuntu 10.4(LTS) using Software Centre. Now I cannot start up Ubuntu but I can get to Terminal via the Recovery Mode. My question is how can I use Terminal to re-introduce Pulseaudio so that I may get back to where I was, albeit with the random crashes that I have had for many months?

Ubuntu :: HFS+ Is Read-only - How Do Change In Terminal

Mar 31, 2010

Basically i have a 1TB USB HDD that is formatted HFS+ (i used to use it attached to a hacked AppleTV, it has loads of media on it).

Appletv wasn't great, so now i have a lovely acer revo running XBMC Live, and it's blooming great. my problem is my USB drive mounts, but i think it's read-only, as i am struggling to sftp new files to it. so my question is:

How do i make the drive writeable?

I've read things about disabling journling, an fstab file, chown in terminal, but im really struggling.

In temrinal if i navigate to the /media folder and run ls -al, i get this: (note the usb drive is called AppleTV)


How to make it read-write? i'm happy for it to have full write access by root, or all users or whatever. im sure its 1 line in terminal!

Slackware :: Virtual Terminal From X The Writing Is Too Dim To Read

Feb 19, 2010

When I try to go to a virtual terminal from X the writing is too dim to read. When I boot to run level 3 all is fine, then I "startx" and use the gui. If I "ctrl-alt-F3" the printing on the screen is so dim that I can't see it. Is there a setting for this somewhere that I haven't found. Before installing Slackware 13-64 I ran Zenwalk for over a year and never had this problem.

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!

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

General :: Launch A Terminal By Clicking On The Terminal Icon At The Top Of The Screen

Apr 22, 2010

I have a favorite REXX program called fv2. When I was a Windows user I had an icon for fv2 on the Quick Launch bar. Click that icon, and the program ran. Now, as a Linux (Ubuntu) user it is necessary to go through several steps to run fv2.

1) Launch a terminal by clicking on the terminal icon at the top of the screen. What's that area called? The GNOME panel?
2) Enter: ~/Desktop/RexxScripts
3) Enter: regina fv2

I run fv2 several times per day and would really like to have the convenience of a clickable icon.

General :: Terminal Proxy Or Screen Without Terminal Emulation?

May 26, 2010

How can I make terminal applications immune to terminal emulator close, but still able to use all virtual terminal features?

egin{UPDATE}I want my terminal application remain alive and accessible if I accidentally close terminal emulator. This functionality is provided by screen and tmux, but they have issues with colors and they flush screen.Yes,I can run the shell inside screen, but I do not want the shell remain alive unless there is some other program running.

end{UPDATE}I see this must be something like screen, but without VT100 terminal emulation, something which will just apply whatever application does with "terminal proxy"'s terminal (like outputting something to stdout/stderr or using stty to set terminal options) to the terminal this proxy runs in.

// I know about screen and altscreen on, but it makes either this (screen with TERM=screen):

or this (screen with TERM=rxvt-unicode):

while I want this (rxvt-unicode without screen):

I have figured out that everything looks fine if I compile rxvt-unicode with USE=-xterm-color (in fact vim looks like on the second picture even without screen if I add this USE flag) and set TERM=screen-256color, but I do not like this workaround because it actually changes colors and I can't be sure that it will always change them only this way:
