Debian :: When Open Up Konsole And Type 'su' And My Root Password - Authentication Failure ?

Apr 8, 2010

My system software is installed on an encrypted LVM on hda1 and hda2. My home directory takes up the whole of hdb1 which is also encrypted. I can boot up into the kde desktop okay, but when I open up konsole and type 'su' and my root password I get the message "su: Authentication failure". I am absolutely certain that I am using the right password.

Even more strangely, if I fire up synaptic and give it that same password I am able to install software. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what's gone wrong and how I can fix it?

I can also type Ctrl-Alt-F2 and log in as root to do administrative tasks without any problems so I cannot understand why konsole has locked me out.

Aug 19, 2010

I'm running PCLinuxOS with no other OS installed. Thought I'd have a go at chainloading. just for interests sake.So, I opened Konsole, entered su and entered my root password. The command line turned red so, I imagined all was well. But when I then keyed in '/boot/grub/.menu.lst' I was refused access.

Fedora :: Is Konsole Most Feature Rich Terminal?

Jun 16, 2011

I've been looking for a alternative terminal to work in while using F15. I've done some Googleing and came across Konsole as being the most feature rich terminal. I'd like a terminal that provides a lot of features so I could possibly increase my efficiency. If something is KDE like Konsole does that mean I have to install the whole KDE environment? If so is there any Fedora terminal alternatives?

General :: Can't Resize Konsole Windows Size In Fedora / Make It Possible?

Aug 1, 2011

This may seem to be a silly question, but I googled along
and found that most of relevant complaints was about
a bug in video card driver.

My problem is -
For some unknown reason, I can't resize the Konsole window horizontally while I can still resize vertically. This is bad as the corrent width of Konsole window fills the entire screen!

Fedora :: Cron Opens Konsole On Script Execution And Leaves It Open?

Mar 14, 2011

I am trying to set up a simple script to automatically invoke streamripper to record my favourite radio shows. The script works fine in a terminal window (Konsole), but when scheduling this as a cron job (KCron via SystemSettings) a Konsole window pops up catching the streamripper output.

Now stramripper can behave with the --quiet option, and I set output redirects "> /dev/null 2>&1". Inside the script or on the command line of KCron.


sh myscript.txt >/dev/null 2>&1

...or just as the script without the "sh" command. Same result. Still the same annoying Konsole terminal window pops up, now with no other content than what Cron obviously generates at the end of the script execution:


End of script execution. Type Enter or Ctrl+C to exit.

Well, the whole point of this cron scheduling was to avoid manual intervention and create the MP3 file of the radio show automatically. how to avoid the terminal window completely?

Server :: Fedora Sending Mails From Root With Non-root Account?

Jul 14, 2011

I've started to get emails that would typically come from [URL] as [URL]. These emails come from services that send out emails (backup programs) directly, or from cronjobs. I've logged in as the non-root account and either sudo su - or su - to root and the restart the service at one point or another. If I login directly as root and bounce the service or cron the emails come across as from root. I don't see anything in my environment variables after I su to indicate what would cause this. I'm not sure where else to look? A pam setting? This seems to have happened between Fedora 10 and 14 (did a bunch of overdue upgrades recently) I've only got Fedora so I don't have anything to compare to. In Fedora 10 I did not have this problem.

Fedora Security :: Become Root Without Root Password?

Oct 20, 2010

I found this on Bee's website. For more info on this exploit there are links there:[URl]..All you have to do in Fedora 13 is enter the following lines in a shell as normal user:


I don't think this can be considered solely an "upstream" problem, because I first tried it in Arch using the same version of glibc, and the final command causes both gnome-terminal and xterm windows to disappear.

General :: KDE Konsole Can't Run Some Commands

Dec 14, 2010

I just started having some problem after switching my desktop manager from GNome to KDE. One of such situation is the konsole on KDE not running popular commands like ifconfig that I run when I was using GNome.
Although, I have fallen in love with KDE, I am feeling a little bereaved of some feature. where I could use KDE to mastery? (Because I want to believe that I am not doing somethings I should and not that KDE is so limited)

Slackware :: Vim Not Compatible With Konsole?

Sep 29, 2010

Nobody else seems to be reporting this, so I guess it's down to my setup in some way, but when I run vim from a konsole window under KDE 4.3.3, I find that the konsole screen messes up during the session (feels as if it is writing with background colour on the background or something) and even when you leave vim by typing the right exit commands, display remains upset (most often confined to leftmost 20-30 columns). Konsole "clear and reset" does not help, I have to close the session and start a new instance.

Maybe connected to the konsole settings I use which are "black on light yellow"?

Should I have something in by .vimrc or konsole configuration to fix this ?

OpenSUSE :: Bold 'Konsole' Fonts Get Cut Off?

Jul 30, 2010

Got a problem with fonts in 'Konsole'-windows. 'Bold' fonts are being cut off at the last letter. Sometimes only half the letter is visible, sometimes the letter is completely invisible. No problems with fonts in xterm. Set the standards in '/etc/DIR_COLORS', but the problem still exists in (for example):

- man-pages (headings)
- perldoc (headings)
- vi (infos at bottom, like -- INSERT --)
- ...

Is there a solution to turn off bold fonts in Konsole completely? Would be my favourite! I'm using OpenSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.4.4 "release 2"...

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 - Konsole Tab Autocomplete Feature

Then hit tab; it auto completes to /etc (space on the end of it)

sudo /etc/init.
Then hit tab; it auto completes to /etc/init.d (space on the end of it)
