General :: Application Connects To Net And Then Closes Automatically

Mar 31, 2011

I work from home writing web content, and need the use of an article spinner tool called "The Best spinner". It is an .exe file and I installed it in my Mint Debian edition machine using wine, and everything is fine except for one thing. The app opens out, connects to the net, and then closes automatically. In fact if I check on the internet activity, I can see the app downloading the latest version, but the problem is that always it closes within a few seconds leaving me no other choice other than to log into a windows machine to work on it.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the app a couple of times but it does not seem to have helped. It requires the .net packages in winetricks, and I read that wine does not support net very well, yet the app is installed and even connects to the net. I don't understand the underlying process of how windows apps work in wine. Any work around considering that I never log into windows for anything other than using this app, a workaround means that windows is gone forever from my life.

Ubuntu :: Terminal Closes Automatically Because Of Changed Preferences?

Jul 26, 2010

I can't open my terminal anymore. I changed a preference under the Title and Command tab in the preferences of the GNOME terminal. I put a custom command instead of the normal shell, but after I closed I realized that under the "When Command Exits" menu, I chose "Close Terminal". This means that the terminal closes automatically as soon as the command is done. After I open, it finishes the command and closes. I was wondering whether there is some way to change the terminal preferences from somewhere else or reinstall the terminal, and I obviously can't use terminal commands.

Networking :: Pon Connects Ok To Remote VPN / Cant Get Route Added Automatically

Mar 5, 2010

I have configured a VPN connection to a remote router which connects ok. I can ping the remote router IP, but cannot ping any other IP on their network.I have put this down to needing a route added. I can manually type # route add -net netmask 255.255. 255.0 dev ppp0 and all works like I want it to, but I really need this to be automatic everytime the connection starts.I have tried following URL... but cant get it to work. The file is called /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/routing and has execution priviledges (755) so ive hit a dead end.

Ubuntu :: Kill Application Automatically After Login?

Jan 9, 2011

I am using kvkbd as an onscreen keyboard and I have it set to start on the login screen but after I login I want the keyboard to close and I can not get this to work. At the bottom of /etc/gdm/Init/DefaultI added the line.Code:exec kvkbd&This works great and kvkbd starts up and even puts a panel icon at the bottom of the login screen but after the login the keyboard is still there?I have tried making a launcher and adding it to the startup applications. I wrote a script and put it in the /usr/sbin and /usr/bin and also added a line at the bottom of my /etc/rc.local that should have run that same script to kill kvkbd and nothing. The really weird thing is that the launcher that I made would work if I double clicked on it but if i had it set to run as a startup application it would not work.

General :: Evolution Opens Then Instantly Closes Itself Again?

Apr 24, 2011

Evolution was working properly but now whenever I try to open it the program opens, flashes up on the screen then disappears. If I click on the little envelope at the top of the screen I can get both the compose new message screen and also the contacts to open, but not the main mail program. If I open the contacts screen and click on the mail button to switch to it that way, the program instantly disappears again. I have also tried applications/office/evolution but that has the same result.

Software :: Dual Monitors - Make An Application Automatically Open On Second Monitor?

Jul 20, 2011

I am using Fedora 15 with dual monitors. I want to make an application open automatically on the second monitor. In particular I would like to make Firefox open on the second monitor. For now I am just manually moving Firefox to the second monitor, but if I close it down and open it again, it automatically opens on the first monitor. Is there a way to make it automatically open on the second monitor?

I have two Nvidia cards in my machine. I did have one monitor connected to each video card, but I was unable to get a dual monitor set up to work like this, so I plugged both monitors into one card and the dual monitor set up works fine like. Is there a way to make dual monitors work if you have a monitor connected to each video card? When I had a monitor connected to each video card, I could see the second monitor in the Nvidia settings, but it always disabled it. I could enable it, but it would grey out twin view. After I enabled it, I'll restart the X server, the second monitor would auto disable again.

I'm using Gnome, I don't have the above issue in Xfce4 - it works fine with one monitor connected to each card in Xfce4. However, I want to use Gnome. I've searched, but have not been able to find a solution to either of these issues. I read you can fix the application to launch in a second monitor with wmctrl. I've tried to install it with yum, but I get the message: No package wmctrl available.

General :: Bluetooth Mouse Connects But Not Recognized

Feb 19, 2011

I'm running Debian squeeze on a Fujitsu Lifebook AH550 under kernel revision 2.6.37. For the most part, everything is good, but I can't get my Verbatim Bluetooth mouse (model 96991) to work. It's fine with the Debian 2.6.32 kernel, so I know that the hardware is recognized and any required configuration files are in place. I've evidently missed some kernel configuration parameter, unless perhaps some driver has changed since 2.6.32 which renders my mouse incompatible.If I run bluetooth-properties, I can see that a mouse is configured. I've tried removing that device and adding a new device. The mouse is found immediately, and, according to the dialog, is configured successfully.

General :: Application Called Impact - Paths In Java Application ?

Apr 14, 2010

So, I have this application called Impact, it is an explicit time integration Finite Elements code written in Java...


I untar the pack, and launch the application calling a script, from within the untarred folder,


This launches a gui which allows me to setup a case, which needs some setup file, tipically some *.in and a mesh file, tipically some *.msh.

Other mode of executuion consists of calling the setup file as argument to script ( CLI execution mode, for g33k5 )

My problem is : I have packed the whole stuff into a Slackware .tgz, that places it in /usr/local/Impact, and placed a calling script in /usr/local/bin,



I decided to hack the script from



no avail,


even after adding /usr/local/Impact/bin to PATH... won't go...

I can run this thing from within its directory... but I do not like messing within the directories of my applications, this is why I sent this to /usr/local, and placed a calling script in /usr/local/bin...

General :: Ssh Connection Forces Password Change Then Closes Connection - WARNING: Your Password Has Expired

Feb 16, 2011

On my linux machine, I've enforced a password expiry policy every 45 days. So, today when I tried to ssh to the host, I get the typical "WARNING: Your password has expired". Fine, no big deal. But when I enter my new password and confirm, instead of giving me a login prompt, it tells me passwd all auth tokens updated successfully, then next line, "Connection to <host> closed". I can re-ssh back into that host and all is well from here, but it's a nuisance having to go through the extra step. Is this something in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config somewhere or perhaps a PAM config issue?

Ubuntu :: While Using FTP, Connection Closes Frequently?

Mar 11, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 6.06 and Apache.I connect to the machine via FTP. It seems as if the connection times out every few seconds. If I u/l a file it will take 15 seconds to connect. Once that connection is open I can u/l more files instantly. If I wait a few seconds it closes, then I have to wait another 15 seconds for it to reopen. Any ideas how to make it not time out so frequently?

Debian :: Computer Closes Down Unexpectedly - SystemD?

May 21, 2015

I leave my system in suspend mode overnight and wake it up first thing in the morning. At 9:15 it will automatically run housekeeping scripts via cron and these are completed by 9:30. Some time later I will turn on the monitor and start work. Since moving from Wheezy to Jessie the system has switched off for no apparent reason. I checked the syslog and auth.log and found it completed all it's tasks at 9:30 then started shutting down at 9:35. Relevant extracts from these logs are attached ...

My OS is Jessie 64 bit with Cinnamon on a quite standard Gigabyte desktop with dual core intel processor, 4Gb RAM and SSD drive. It uses NVidia drivers and there were no unusual entries in

Debian Programming :: Command Followed By And Still Closes With Terminal?

Jan 4, 2014

Running debian wheezy. I noticed recently, whenever I fork a process using "&" from a terminal, such as

Code: Select allleafpad &

it starts up, shows the processid in the terminal, but every time when I close the terminal, leafpad gets killed. However, I create a simple bash script,

Code: Select all#!/bin/bash

The script launches leafpad, then exits out leaving leafpad running, as it should. Is what I mentioned above normal? I'm confused, because I think I used to be able to do this in terminal without it depending on the terminal to stay running.

I guess I'm remembering wrong. As it turns out, commands begun on terminal get closed with terminal unless, as mentioned, you use nohup or start subshell. Process hierarchy and tracking etc.
