General :: Fedora Virtual Terminal Won't Scroll After Switch?

Feb 5, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 12 for some Linux testing. When I switch between virtual terminals (CTRL-f1 Ctrl-f2) I can no longer scroll back in the VT I left and came back to. Any new data created will be scrollable, but i can never get back to before the switch. I'm sure this used to work (several years ago). Was this introduced as a security feature to prevent left over data on VTs from being seen by the wrong eyes? If so, is there a way to get the old functionality back?

General :: Differences Between Shell , Console & Terminal?

Jan 9, 2011

What are the differences between shell , console & terminal?

This probably sounds like a stupid question but I'm having a lot of trouble clearly differentiating between a shell (such as Bourne or bash) and the Terminal application in GNOME. I realise that both are completely different but I can't seem to find a clear answer written in text. Could anyone clearly distinguish between both?

General :: What Are The Differences Between Shell , Console & Terminal

Jul 23, 2011

I have come across the use of the term terminal, virtual terminals/consoles, real-text terminals but do not understand what terminal refers to. Does it refer to the screen that is in-front of me whilst I post this question or does it refer to something specific?EDITI came across a similar post at What are the differences between shell , console & terminal? and it seems to be similar to the one I posted although am still confused about the use of the sentence Decades ago, this was a physical device consisting of little more than a monitor and keyboard. What does this device look like and how is different to a monitor?

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 :: Scroll Tab Vanishes Before Can Click On It To Scroll Down

Jun 3, 2011

The new scroll tab that 11.04 has appears when you hover over the orange area on the scroll bar. The scrolling arrows are gone.Well this scrolling tab often vanishes before I can click on it to scroll down. Is there a way to revert to the old style, like the scrolling mechanism on these forums? It is nice to have the option of the arrows on top and bottom, along with the scroll tab thing.

Fedora :: Looking For A Good Console / Terminal Application?

Jan 2, 2011

Fedora 14 xfce
HP Netbook 210

I am looking for a good and practical console application. I use midnight commander a lot, and I find it frustrating every time I press the F10 key it displays the drop menu items using the terminal. On occasions I make invisible the menu bar, by disabling in the view menu.

So I am looking for a good console application that when I use midnight commander if I press the function key buttons it doesn't display the drop down menu options.

Software :: Desktop / Terminal Emulator And Drop Down Console

Jun 22, 2009

I want to leave KDE (too bloated, got less than 300-400 megs free mem of 4G, mostly consumed by kde&friends) and I need some lightweight replacements for:

1. Desktop: lightweight, highly configurable, with utilities out of the box for: window switching (i.e. fluxbox doesn't have it and it makes me nuts), run command (usually alt+f2, I'm very used to it), virtual desktops.

2. Terminal Emulator: konsole is a very comfortable tool, highly customizable and I like it very much, but again it's very resource expensive. What do I need: no cursor blinking (gnome developers, why do you think it's comfortable? it's killing people), multitab,
utf support, shortcuts customization.

3. And probably a drop-down console like yakuake or tilda (both are consuming too much resources). Requirements are the same as for terminal emulator.

I've spent a week trying to find something fitting this requirements and found nothing.

What I've tried:
fluxbox, openbox, blackbox and other *box:
1. No window switching dialog
2. Awful run dialog (had to hack it so it reports at least something)
3. No window highlights in tray
4. Lots of problems with window focus minor:
- some awkward position dialog on window movement
- hardly customizable - need to change configs. (yes, I want this to be done via mouse and configuration dialog because it is easier and faster)

1. looks like a time traveler from 80's
2. problems with window switching
3. no run dialog (had to make it work with grun)
1. hardly customizable

Terminal emulators:
lxterminal - mostly ok:
1. awful blinking cursor
2. I've got ctrl-shift mapped to language switching and I'm very used to it.

Tried to hack it: cursor - np, key bindings - bunch of problems, I don't know why, but GDK_CONTROL_MASK | GDK_MOD1_MASK doesn't work = tried to find some widget for setting accelerator keys - no luck.

eterm - very nice:
1. no multitabbing that sux...
mrxvt - the best, but doesn't have a utf support

A bunch of other libvte-based terminals with the same bugs:
1. No configuration options (that stupid cursor blinking and keybindings are hardcoded)

Drop down:
1. tilda - too heavy, no key bindings customization
2. yakuake - the best, but too heavy
3. yeahconsole - didn't even start with screams: 10 XError request

Ubuntu :: Scroll Terminal Up/down Line By Line?

Aug 9, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Scrolling the Terminal window up/down works fine using the SHIFT+PAGEUP / PAGEDOWN key combination.

Many times I feel like scrolling the window, line by line to investigate the output minutely. I am wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut to scroll the Terminal up/down line by line?

Moreover, I suddenly happened to discover that SHIFT+CTRL+UP Arrow /DOWN Arrow scrolls my terminal window up and down line by line. I am glad to see that working. But it does not work that way on another Linux system (CentOS), not even on console. So I am not sure if this is a real solution. Is this a configurable item on Linux Terminal to enable / disable this keyboard shortcut?

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse Lost After Update - How To Boot In To Terminal?

Oct 15, 2010

I was working on something important in 11.2 and did a "zypper up" in the terminal in the background. I wasn't paying that much attention to it, I believe it was an update to 11.3. After returning to the computer after about one hour the windows were behaving strangely and the machine wasn't very responsive. I decided to reboot. Now at login I have neither mouse nor keyboard. I have switched the keyboard to PS2 model, no difference. If someone could help me with booting to run level 3 from the grub menu perhaps I could change some settings there to make everything work. I really regret doing the update. It would be very important for me to be able to get back in to machine with spending as little time as possible on this. Could I reverse the update? This machine is very important for me and my family for their daily communication, but currently I have very little time to fix this. My quick fix was to install Kubuntu 10.10 so I could resume working, but I would really need to get back in to 11.2.

Slackware :: User_foo In Text Console Has Not Same Environment As User_foo In GUI Terminal?

Jun 15, 2011

Kernel, slackware 12.0
Xfce 4.4.1

when I open a graphical terminal in the GUI, I appear as being the same user who ran X in order to enter the GUI, say user_foo, as said by whoami. But a program I usually use in a text console as user_foo, gets Command not found here. Furthermore, the name of the dir I am in does not appear in the prompt, whereas it does when in the text console.

I guess this has something to do with enheriting the environment, but don't know wht to do for this to happen. How do I open this GUI terminal? I do so by choosing among one of several ones in the DE main menu. When I click the menu entry, the terminal doesn't ask for a password.

General :: Firefox 3.5.12 Goes Out Of Control When Scroll Down- Fedora 12

Sep 16, 2010

Usually but not always, when I try to scroll down by clicking in the vertical scroll bar - instead of going down approx 1 screen firefox slowly and jerkily and out of control goes all the way to the bottom of the page. If it is a long page I wait a long time.

The wheel on the mouse works fine, moving the vertical scroll handle with the mouse works fine, pushing the down arrow also works fine.

Alternatively - sometimes the vertical scroll works as I expect it to.

Alterntively - when I use Opera it scrolls as I would expect.

General :: How To Avoid Auto Scroll In Xterm

Oct 7, 2010

I'm using Xterm. While running a prog/command if I scroll up and reading something on the screen, the xterm view resets to bottom if there is some output from the running command.

I tried enabling/disabling jump scroll, asynchronous scroll, scroll to bottom on tty output options of Xterm with no avail. In one way or the other way, the screen is scrolling or resetting to bottom if there is some output to screen.

I want to stop this behavior and the scroll should work as if it is in Konsole. The new output to screen should simply add at the bottom and the current viewing point should remain unscrolled. pls let me know if there is any working solution for this xterm problem.
