Customer asked me to create a menu for linux he also asked me to do this: Open like a command like where a user can execute commands...so for this the users have sudo enabled. The code below works OK. But it has an issue when a command is executed but the command does not need sudo
Like for instance Code: cd / sudo: cd: command not found
How can I allow a user to execute all commands when a command does not need sudo Code: echo -e "Press Control+C to finish" #echo -e " " while true; do read whichcmd?"Insert Command: " sudo $whichcmd done
ssh to a machine on my network open up a terminal (gnome, xterm, whatever) and have it visible on that machines display be able to type and execute commands in that window, from my computer. i have kind of achieved this. on machine A, i ssh to machine B. on machine B, i open up a terminal and execute screen, C-a :multiuser on. on machine A, i execute screen -x and connect to the term on B. everything i type from A or B can be seen. i just want to be able to set this up without having to physically be at machine B. does that make sense?
In gnome terminal it is possible to open multiple tabs with Quote:$ gnome-terminal --tab-with-profile=jake_lardasset --tab-with-profile=virtualsexgranny -x alpineWe got even further....Quote:gnome-terminal --tab-with-profile=james_treesexer --command pymol --tab-with-profile=loverboy13 --command alpineand pymol runs, but not in the tab and alpine runs in the tab.The problem is, that when using a script to check mail it has Quote:gnome-terminal --tab-with-profile=chrissypink --command alpine --tab-with-profile=jake_hugerichard -x ssh email@example.com the other way aroundIs there a simpler way to do this?And why is it not possible to execute ssh with the --command parameter and -x has to be used ,but top and so on can be executed with --command
I am running Centos 5.3. I ran no updates, performed no installs, nor changed any configuration immediately prior to this issue. My problem is this: when I run the command startx (default runlevel 3), it is a long time (5-10 minutes) before Gnome startx, and once it does start applications will not run. Also, when I try to use sudo (from any environment, even ssh), it is a long time (5-10) before the command is executed.
I cannot say for sure, but it seems like this is an intermittent problem. Sometimes X takes a long time to start, but once it starts it will launch programs. Sometimes X takes a long time to launch, but once it starts it will only launch certain programs. Though presently X always takes a long time to start, and I cannot successfully launch any programs.
A while back a had a similar problem to this (x taking long time to start, sudo taking long time to execute) and it ended up being a DNS problem. Unfortunately, I cannot remember exactly what it was and I stupidly did not document it. Maybe this is also DNS related, I don't know.
I don't know what log files to look at for problems with X, Gnome, and sudo taking a long time to start.
When I try execute a variety of basic commands (including ps, ls, ifconfig, locate), I receive the error 'no such file or directory'.
Here are some suggestions that I've found online, that I have tried without success: I did a 'whereis ps' and found the file in the /bin/, and have checked that '/bin' appears when I do 'echo $PATH' I did a filesystem check which showed my hard drive as being clean I tried doing a 'sudo chmod 777 ps' but was told that I dont have permission. I don't think permissions for these files would have changed though (and I can't check as I can't run the 'ls' command).
i am working on some kind of PBX and i have list of telephone numbers inside a file, i have to insert these numbers into the correct command and then telnet to a remote server and execute these commands. i can read the telephone numbers and insert them into the command with no problem, but when i try to insert these commands into the send i face problem. here is the basic code
i can make external loop inside the Bash which read the input file and issue the command and then telnet and execute, but this will make the script connects and disconnects again for each line which cause high load on that server and hardwar problem. i am wondering if there is an option inside the expect interperter which makes the send read directly from a file... somthing like this:
since a recent upgrade to Mandriva 2010.1 I am not able to 'sudo' as administrator or when I use the 'root' password. I am the only user on this machine (Dell Inspiron 530S multi-booted with Window's Vista Home Premium, Ubuntu 10.4, and Mandriva 2010.1). I can get into the 'Manage Users' section of the control center by authenticating as 'root' but I can't access 'sudoers file' from command line.
What you do if the job takes a long time to finish and you don't want to wait.Say, I ssh to a remote server from my laptop and start a long-running job. Then few hours later I ssh again and inspect how did job run, its uotput and etc.
I used Ubuntu for three years and was recently trying Debian and am now giving Fedora a try. When I switched to Linux I was almost computer illiterate. Even now I only know a little about using the terminal. So forgive me for asking such a simple question.I want to install some extra founts that I need, but Fedora is a little different than the systems I am familiar with. I quickly looked through posts in this forum and noticed solutions using long series of terminal commands. With Debian and Ubuntu I added founts by using a nautilus command to get by the permissions (specifically, gksu nautilus). Does Fedora have a similar tool, or must I use the terminal? I want to install quite few founts and do not want to spend a whole day doing it. If terminal is the best solution, I need a little clarification. I saw people using su in their command lines. Does that refer to sudo?
I am backing up data from a remote server onto a local ntfs partition. It seems that the rm -rf and cp -a commands are taking a long time to complete in what should be short, incremental backups.Has anyone had similar problems when backing up to an ntfs partitionHere is my rsnapshot.conf:
how to execute commands on startup. I've added lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, /etc/rc.local, I've put scripts (with extension .sh) into /etc/init.d/ and I've set the executable permission thing on all of them with chmod -x. I *still* can't get anything at all to execute on startup. The truth is, I'm trying to enable multitouch and button tapping automatically when I startup Fedora. I have the commands
Which I want to execute whenever I start Fedora (it's a bit tedious to write them every time, or even to have to execute a script myself whenever I start my computer). Furthermore, if I can figure this out, then I can do all sorts of things. Does anyone have a clear, surefire way in which I can do this? I'm not good with using Linux at all
I am executing a run command in a script after that i need to copy files into a directory which are the inputs for the run,on run a new shell is created and the remaining commands in the script does not execute,wot should i do to execute the remaining commands in the script??
I am trying to determine if I should upgrade PHP's PEAR on my server. I am trying to check the version of PEAR currently installed. I am getting the following error when I use the pear -V command:Warning: realpath(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/tmp) is not within the allowed path(s)(/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php) in System.php on line 459I tried adding /tmp to my php.ini file, but then when I use the pear -V command it doesn't do anything. I do not get any errors or anything.I am also trying to install symfony and have the same situation described above when I use the following command: pear cannel-discover pear.symfony-project.comDoes anyone have any thoughts? If not the solution, does anyone have any suggestions on how to begin troubleshooting this?
I have debian lenny, when I run an application is slow to load (example: iceweacel open and it takes, I can hold him iceweacel work normally), I tried to change from gnome to another and the same thing, went down some services (samba, squid) and nothing. I open a terminal and it takes, I want to duplicate it and do it fast. From a terminal without X (tty1) with root run mc and moves quickly, also run as root "sudo mc" and takes to boot.Any action done with sudo it takes to run.Can not be what it takes to make starting the applications, not the PC because it is new, and from one moment to another I began to pass this
I am trying to get F10 installed on L2 so that I can use the system the same way that I have been using L1 with F8. Specifically, I am using unison (with ssh) to crossload files between the desktop and the laptop. Unison works just fine when executed on the desktop crossloading to the F8 Laptop1. But when trying to do the same on L2, it hangs while trying to contact the server.Attempting to diagnose the problem has led me to ssh.I can use ssh to login to any of my systems from the desktop. E.g.,ssh delta
but attempting to execute a command via ssh simply hangs. E.g.,ssh delta "echo $PATH"
Both ssh login and ssh remote execution work fine when done to the F8 laptop 1.
I have installed tcsh on all systems and my login shell is csh (i.e., tcsh) on all machines.I have spent the better part of the last two days trying to find something but have failed. As far as I can tell, both L1 and L2 are configured identically: firewall disabled selinux disabled and while I have not done a character-by-character comparison of the ssh and sshd configuration files, they appear (visually) to be the same, as shipped with the Fedora distribution.
I need some pointers on where to look for problems, etc.
