i've gotten my fedora 12 to the point where i can run python3 scripts from command line and can call up python 2.6.2 idle with the command 'idle' from command line. what command will call up python3 (3.1.2 to be exact) idle?
I have just installed pdfocr. Unfortunately it does not have a gui and so in time I will forget how to use it or not remember I have it.
Is there a simple generic program that will browse to where the file is and then run the command line? I suspect python will do it. Could someone point me to a suitable tutorial for this purpose.code...
I am going to do a web based search for several thousand webpages which may or may not exist. I just want a list of the addresses which work. I dont want to load into firefox, and I'd preffer not to ping the url. I just want to test the URLs for validity and kick back a list of good URLs. Any Ideas on a simple program to do this, which I can use in a bash script?
I tried to install Vlc using the terminal (terminal as root). I've used the command aptitude install vlc. Instead of installing only vlc, my gnome desktop environment was removed, gdm was removed, many more programs was removed! What's the command for installing just a single program using the command line? I was used under Ubuntu to use the command sudo apt-get install [***]
I have reinstalled Suse 10.1 as dual-boot with Windows XP. I am now unable to get a program to run from the Linux command line. I am familiar with the program and have had it running previously when the machine was Linux-only. Everything else, e.g.Firefox and Office, work fine in Suse.
The problem occurs with all commands - not just this one. isis3Startup.sh is in green on the screen so I assume I should be able to run it - I have never had any problem when it was installed previously.
ipcalc isn't the one I am thinking of. I remember another one that was a bit better, with more options -- easier to use.I remember that if you gave it a CIDR network /23 and an IP, it would list all of the address ranges, network, broadcast for that network..
Is there an easy to use program that I can use to send mail from the command line? I want to be able to create a batch script to send mail from different text files. What I'm looking for is something like: mailapp mailserveraddress destinationmailaddress mymailaddress filetosend
Example: In rc2.d I have S99test. In it: Code: #!/bin/sh mplayer -playlist "/music/Thom Yorke - The Eraser" Reboot; hear the loveliness; press pause (lirc setup)...still loveliness.
Login as root; "pkill mplay";hear nothing; "/etc/rc2.d/S99test"; more loveliness; press pause...silence! I know that i the former case, mplayer is assigned (for lack of a proper term) to a session, e.g. tty1. Not so in the latter. But why should a program like mplayer not receive (or ignore?) input from lircd, simply because it doesn't have a session? And how can I get mplayer (or any program run from boot scripts) to work with other programs (like lircd)?
I thought about this a while ago when reading through a Python tutorial and I googled some and couldn't find an answer. Now I want to know it for Ruby, also, and it's more important now because I want to invoke Ruby with -w.
How can you use:
with a -w option to ruby, like:
This doesn't work and I can't find an explanation of how to do it.
For whatever reason, the "Ctrl-Alt-Fn" sequence has no effect on one of my Ubuntu machines; the sequence is interpreted as ordinary input. I need to get the system to a console because I'm trying to do a dist-upgrade and that's going to bounce gdm etc.
Is there some command-line tool that can be used to switch consoles? I have some vague distant memory of that being possible.
(I'm running Ubunty Jaunty at the moment. Yes I know it's old; I'm trying to march forward.)
I use a few command line programs quite often such as nano and mpc. I'd like to create a shortcut icon to open them rather than opening a terminal and then typing in the program name to open it. For example, how could i open konsole with nano opened in one step?
Is there a program I can install and run from the Command Line that will hibernate the computer (pausing all running programs (like my Minecraft server)), cutting power usage TO A BARE MINIMUM, and the un-hibernate after a set time? The laptop this will be used on is SliTaz linux with the GUI disabled (unless i run startx)
I'm sick of screwing around trying to script a clean solution to burn multiple files and folders to CDs and DVDs with wodim, growisofs and genisoimage.I'm looking for a high level command line program that uses sensible defaults and takes arguments something like this:[program-name] [cd|dvd] /path/to/dir1/ /path/to/dir2/ /path/to/file ...It should then do all the low level copying and ISO generation transparently and just burn the damn disk!Does anyone have any suggestions? I've looked at several programs but it seems there are too many choices to trawl through and not enough information about them online.
So, I usually write/find a test case generator for any code that I write. This type of code generally leads to some file output. To be thorough, I try and generate many different files to test my code on.
Say the command is like this:
Is there a way to automate this for many different values of the parameters and generate many different files?
I wasn't able to use the $i in the filename, and without it the command gave me no errors, but did nothing else either. I know the Unix command line is very powerful, and I have a feeling that this should be possible, but I just don't know how to do it.
OS: CentOS 5.3 Enterprise Server Red Hat Nash Version 220.127.116.11
I need to find a command-line program to randomly change my MAC address. I know on Ubuntu there is a program called 'macchanger'. And on Windows another one called 'macshift'. I just can't find one for CentOS 5.3 Enterprise Edition.
I need to use some PCs located on my university from home through the internet. I am using a program called Teamviewer [URL]... The problem is that this program transmits the whole graphical interface, which is slow, but I just need to use the command line with these computers. I am aware of ssh, but my university won't give me access to theses computers over the internet.
Can anyone tell me what the pros and cons are between heirloom-mailx vs mailutils? This is for ubuntu 10.04 LTS. AT this point my only purpose is to use the mail command line program to occasionally send log output to email aliases.
I have downloaded the source code of bochs. and I use make install command to install it onto my box. But how could I uninstall it? I run the sudo apt-get remove bochs, but it said I didn't install the bochs...
