Fedora :: Gnome Terminal Randomly Can't Find All Files

Aug 18, 2011

yesterday I tried to convert a file with ffmpeg and as usual I type the first letter of the file and hit tab to auto complete and nothing happened, I then cut and pasted the file name, no such file or directory I have 41 files in ~/videos and if I hit tab without choosing anything gnome terminal gives me the choice of just 1 file, ok just tried it again first time only 1 file second time 4 different files 1st file can't be found. I can't do anything from the command line, is anyone else seeing this odd behaviour ?

Edit: I just installed aterm and gnome terminal found some more files and now can't find them again, aterm seems to be removing the first 4 letters and replacing them with spaces

Fedora :: Can't Find / Display Files In Home Folder In Terminal Or Fm

Feb 23, 2010

I was messing around with fed 12 yesterday (only on a test installation) and i've hit a snag. I installed openbox and tint2, nitrogen, obconf etc so i could have a #!-style session at startup. It all worked fine until i installed pcmanfm and removed nautilus. The problem is that i can't display files in my home directory, either using pcmanfm, a reinstalled nautilus, or in terminals. Every time i try to point a file brower there it just seems to get stuck searching forever, until i kill it. Weirdly in terminator i can do an 'ls' to see visible files, but 'ls -la' causes the problem again.

ps i thought permissions might have something to do with it, so i did a 'chmod -R 777' as root. it changed permissions for quite a lot of the files but then froze again, and now the problem persists.

Fedora :: ANSI BBS In Gnome Terminal ?

Sep 24, 2010

I am a former Sysop of a BBS and currently resurrecting the BBS. I have been looking for a way to get Gnome Terminal in Fedora 13 configured to support ANSI BBS emulation.

Back in the DOS days, we just loaded ANSI.SYS and ran our terminal software (like Procomm Plus or Qmodem), but I am hoping someone has done this and can help me set it up.

I have already tried Qterrm and the "latest" syncterm. Neither of these worked right. Syncterm hasn't been updated since 2009, so I really don't want to mess too much with that one.

I know you can terminal.app in Mac OS X to do it, so I figure we can too. I REALLY want gnome terminal to be the way to do it.

Fedora :: Colors In Gnome Terminal?

Mar 30, 2010

I am using Fedora 8, gnome, a tcsh login shell, and I would like to have my directories and files color coded when I use ls. I have been searching the internet far and wide today looking for ways to do this. I have tried all the ways I could find: edit .bsrc file, edit DIR_COLORS, edit DIR_COLORS.xterm, create .dircolors, edit etc/profile, edit .cshrc file, alias ls --colors, and all combinations of this. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.I use su in my terminal I get the colors for ls. So there must be something up with my user profile? I have tried to edit my terminal profiles and my desktop themes neither worked. Please help! I know this is a trivial issue, but now I am on a mission to figure this out.

Fedora :: Remove A Panel From GNOME In Terminal?

Jul 14, 2010

I created a new panel in Gnome (Fedora 12) and it wasn't showing up right. So I just told it to make another (with the same results), and finally one more. So with the two that are there by default, that's 5 total panels... None of the newly created panels where displaying at all. But after creating the last one the system froze up. Now when I try to boot into fedora my system locks up as it's trying to load GNOME...

Is there any way for me to remove those panels through BASH? So I can just boot to a prompt and get them removed. After that I imagine GNOME will load correctly again...

Fedora :: How To Run Scripts From Gnome Launcher Not In The Terminal

Feb 17, 2011

I want to use the Gnome Launcher to launch a script I made but it will only work if I select "Application in Terminal." It will not launch if I use "Application". I've also noticed that my script will only run in the terminal regardless of how I launch it. Fedora will not let me just double click the file and "Run" the script. I don't want to open a terminal every time I run the script.

Fedora :: Terminal-based Programs Won't Run Because It Can't Find Libtermcap

May 30, 2010

I installed Fedora 12 on a new machine (Intel Core i3) and one of my terminal-based programs won't run because it can't find libtermcap. The specific error is

Quote:

error while loading shared libraries: libtermcap.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I seem to have this problem every other time I install a new Fedora. I tried a few things with old libtermcap files from other machines, and I tried looking around the YUM repository, but nothing seemed to work.

What's the proper way to get the libtermcap libraries for a Fedora 12 machine on an iCore i3?

Fedora :: Gnome-terminal Cursor Bug In Jove Editor?

Apr 3, 2010

I use an ancient text editor - Jove - that I maintain and update myself. It has worked fine on Fedora 6, 7 and 8 under gnome-terminal (known to the Jove editor as xterm). I just installed Fedora 12. When moving around a file being edited, the cursor often 'replicates' itself into a series of blocks (or underlines, depending on the cursor type setting) that seem to correspond to tab-stops. I initially thought it was stumbling on TABs, but it does this weirdness on long strings of blanks, as well. Clearing and redrawing the screen cleans things up until the next movement command.

I _intensively_ checked the code for anything that might be sensitive to the new termcap strings that have come with F12, but nothing. I could live with this if the underline cursor blinked so that I could SEE it in text, but alas, there ain't a blinking cursor. Just found out how to get the cursor blinking on another thread. But, I'd _still_ like go get the 'block' to work right. I compared the termcaps used by Jove in LF8 and LF9 and they were identical. Since the "7-block-wide" cursor bug happens in LF9, 10, 11, and 12 but not in LF8, I can confidently conclude that support for termcap/terminfo has been broken as of Fedora 9. And people ask me why I have four computers. (So I can run F8 F9 and F12 and compare their performance!).

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

Quote:

Cannot start gnome-terminal -t R1 -e 'telnet 127.0.0.1 2000' > /dev/nul/2>&1 &:No such file or directory

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

Quote:

Cannot start xterm -T R1 -e 'telnet 127.0.0.1 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

Fedora :: Opening Gnome-terminal - To Be Performed Only At Login

Jan 17, 2011

I have a 'special script' in my .bashrc file, which I want to be performed only at Login. When I open a terminal (through a gnome launcher <gnome-terminal> as the command) it unfortunately sources .bashrc.

Hence the opening of the terminal runs the 'special script' again.

How can I instruct .bashrc not to do something except when and only when I am logging in? I found a segment of code which is supposed to do what I want but I am not sure of how it works.

Code:

Will this work to put my 'special script' in to ensure that it only runs when it is a login script and not when it is a simple launcher terminal opening?

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.
