General :: Copy From 1 Computer To Another With System Shell Commands?

Jun 23, 2011

I want to copy a file (home/remote_computer_user/Desktop/test1.txt) from my remote office computer (a permanent URL + open port) to my home computer (home/home_computer_user/Downloads/).

How can I do this with shell commands in Linux?

My current thoughts:

ssh <user>@<computer1address> -p <port> - gives me a shell on the remote computer
(I think I should use scp, but I dont how exactly how in my case)

What are the exact commands I should use?

OpenSUSE Install :: Commands Make System Boot To Grub Shell Instead Of Grub Menu?

Apr 17, 2010

I started another thread about this to get help booting into openSUSE after Fedora rewrote my bootloader and deleted all other entries. I managed to fix it but I never did find out why the following commands caused my system to boot to the grub shell instead of the grub menu.

root (hd0,3)
setup (hd0)

Can anyone explain to me why these commands caused my system to boot directly to a grub shell? It's as if there were no /boot/grub/menu.lst files for it to use, but after I got everything back to normal, the files were still there.

If it helps, this is how the drive was setup before and now, except Fedora was on /dev/sda4 and has since been deleted.

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 262 2104483+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda2 263 13316 104856255 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 * 13317 14621 10482412+ 83 Linux

General :: What Shell Allows Recalling Commands With Certain Beginning

Sep 14, 2011

Programs like matlab/octave and I'm sure many other ones allow you to start typing a command, and then hit Up to recall the last command that starts with the typed characters. Common linux shell bash doesnot do this. Is there a different shell that does? I'm not asking how to find out the last command, I'm asking if there's a shell that's a little friendlier.

General :: Force The SGUID Even In Copy And Uncompress Commands Automatically?

May 11, 2010

I have a folder and its contents with the following permissions: 2750 (sguid bit). With this I ensure that a newly created file or folder inside that folder will adopt the SGUID. The problem is that if I copy files into that folder, these copied files don't adopt the SGUID. So I have to execute constantly the command: chgrp -R thegroup nameofthefolder everytime I copy or uncompress something into that folder. Is there any way to achieve this (force the SGUID even in copy and uncompress commands) automatically?

General :: Shell Script That Logs Into Another Machine And Executes Some Commands?

Jan 5, 2011

I am trying to write a script that connects to a server and executes some commands on there. Something like this:

telnet remote_machine
cd /home/some_directory
cat a_file_in_current_directory

Unfortunately after login/password I guess the script doesn't jump past the telnet command, until I exit. What do I need to do to make the script start executing commands in the remote shell?

Dec 15, 2010

Is there an easy way to prevent the logging of commands run into syslog as post-shell expansion?

I.e log a command of "ls *.log" as just that, rather than "ls a.log b.log c.log d.log" It makes rather a mess of the log files.

General :: Configure Using Arrow Key To Repeat Previous Shell Commands In Minix?

Jul 20, 2011

I am new to Minix. I'm so impressed by the speed of the system. It looks elegant, I like it. However, I have a question about the shell. In Linux, while using a shell, up and down arrow keys can be used to navigate through previously executed commands. On Minix with the sh shell, I can only get numbers printed out on the screen. I remember I chose a US-std keyboard when installing. Is there any way to use the arrow keys to navigate through previous commands on Minix?

General :: Copy / Paste Output From Shell (not Terminal)?

Jul 15, 2010

I often have issues starting my window manager--xfce. My computer misbehaves in one of 3 ways, one of which is to fail to open X, but generate several screens of info. I want to paste that info to this site, but since I'm in the shell, not the terminal (please correct my vocabulary if it's wrong here), I don't know how to copy and paste the output, since right-clicking doesn't give me a menu. Even if I could copy I'm not sure the information would be accessible in X. Are there any other options?

General :: Shell Script To Shutdown Virtual Machines / Copy And Than Start VM?

Mar 16, 2011

I need to make my 1st ever script to backup VMware workstation VMs to a folder which is then backed up offsite. Here is what I have so far (will be croned):


sudo vmrun -T ws stop "/home/gareth/vmware/NagiosWeb/NagiosWeb.vmx" soft
sudo vmrun -T ws stop "/home/gareth/vmware/UbuntuBackup/UbuntuBackup.vmx" soft
**copy or rsync to /home/gareth/vmware-backup/ dir**


1. Just to confirm, I need to place the above in a file with #!/bin/bash at the top and make it executable.

2. How do I know when the VMs have safely shut down so I can start the copy? I guess I can either a. wait a specified amount of time b. run some sort of if statement to confirm they are off.

3. How do I use Rsync or cp to copy to the backup folder?

4. How will I know the copy is complete so that I can start the VMs again?

General :: Setup A Port Forward From Client Computer's Shell?

Mar 24, 2011

I notice that my bittorrent client is capable of automatically setting up port forwards with my router, and I want to know if I can do the same in a shell script. The reason is, that since my router is stupid and won't let me keep static IP addresses (it seems they forced a DHCP refresh every week to make me want to pay for a more expensive model which doesn't), I need to get my computer to change the port forward to follow my computer's changing internal network IP address. I have a couple of port forward manually entered into my router settings for web interfaces to bittorrent etc, but of course these have a good chance of being invalidated at each DHCP refresh cycle.

Debian :: Run GUI Commands From Shell?

May 22, 2011

The panel plugin from xfce4-mixer has a bug:s icon doesn't update as the volume is changed. This bug has already been reported.One curious thing about it is that, if you right click on the volume icon on the panel, go to 'Settings' (or 'Properties', I don't know, mine is in Portuguese) and then close the window that pops on the screen, the icon is updated.Is it possible to open and close the settings window automatically with a bash script? Like this, I could associate this script with the volume keys of my keyboard, so that the icon is updated as the the volume is changed.

General :: Ubuntu - Cheatsheet For Commands To Save System?

May 20, 2010

I've recently lost my window options, had to somehow manipulate my way to Xchat and ask some people how do I get it back (it was metacity --replace, and after I decided to stop the command and run it in background the X was completely useless so I had to do killall -u user). And that was after the internet connection stopped working for some reason (might've been the ISP).

The thing is, after using linux a long time, I still get the feeling that on dire situations, I don't know the good tricks (stuff like metacity --replace). I feel like a really need like a "rescue" cheatsheet for things like: how to save the X no matter what without pressing reset how to reset the system to "normal state" how to connect to the internet through the command line how to monitor what the X is doing (using ubuntu linux 10.04 btw)
