General :: Kubuntu 9.10 Boots Only A Command Terminal / Specific Commands To Get The Files?

Nov 6, 2009

In a couple days I plan on changing to opensuse from kubuntu. Anyway in the Kpackagemanager I removed the pulseaudio client (and its dependencies) and it messed up my system a bit. I don't really mind but all I need is to get my files from my home folder off my hdd to an external through usb 2.0. When Kubuntu 9.10 boots now all it is is a command terminal basically and I don't know the specific commands to get the files. Or if I need to reinstall something so that it boots up with a graphical looking UI again.

General :: Boots To Grub Prompt Instead Of Kubuntu?

Feb 9, 2010

I recently installed Kubuntu with the windows installer wubi. Everything has gone fine until today. When i turn on the pc i normally have a prompt to go to windows or kubuntu. I choose Kubuntu and it loads it up. But now it goes to a grub prompt and i have no idea how to fix this or get into Kubuntu.

Things i did before the last reboot that may have caused this.

I edited my swappiness to help speed things up at the advice of many websites.

Example: url

I changed it from 60 to 10. I did this by adding the line "vm.swappiness=10" to the end of sysctl.conf

I noticed that there was a # or something at the beginning of every line in sysctl.conf and i did NOT add it to my line. This is my guess as to why i am having problems.

The other thing i did was some bug updates. Something was popping up down by the clock area and it was asking me to do some bug updates of some sort. I said yes.

Any idea on how i can fix this? As of now i cannot get into kubuntu at all. It just gives me a grub command prompt.

General :: Setting Up User To Use Sudo For Specific Commands?

Jan 17, 2011

I did some digging on the sudo command and I do know the config file is /etc/sudoers Read the manual for sudoers and found out that I must use visudo to edit the file I read some of the examples at the bottom of the file and tried entering my own account in following the example. one of the commands I was trying to allow my account to perform without root login is the mount command So I tried adding this in (kreid8 /bin/mount ALL) I then saved & exited the file and logged out of root and tried sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /media. I got an error saying I had to be root in order to do that But when I use the visudo -l option it shows that I have that privellege. Did I edit the file incorrectly?

Programming :: Bash Command To Remove All Files Within A Specific Folder?

Oct 19, 2010

I want to delete all files within a specific folder without actually deleting the folder, what is a good bash command for this?. I found this one but encountered some errors even though I am executing it within the specific folder:

useratdebian:/home/user/folder# find . -type f -exec rm -rf {} ;
[1] 5052
useratdebian:/home/user/folder# find: missing argument to `-exec'
[1]+ Exit 1 find . -type f -exec rm -rf

The command as it appears is:

find . -type f -exec rm -rf {} ;

how to delete only the files contained within the folder called "folder" for example?

General :: Terminal Commands Running Behind The GUI?

Jan 10, 2010

Recently I gained interest in running command from the terminal, like rhythmbox-client --play-pause and vlc --open, but I could not find the vlc's pause command under vlc. there's a way I can have a terminal display the commands that run when I do some action. For example, when I click on pause in vlc, the terminal should show me what command it used to pause vlc. What's the closest ting I can get to this?

General :: On Kubuntu, Whenever Open The Terminal, Go Straight To ~/Documents?

Jun 29, 2011

Even after changing the file name to Document, Doc, Docs, etc. It always makes it the default directory. It's not a "Deal-Breaker" with me deciding between Ubuntu 11.04 Classic and Kubuntu 11.04, but it's kind of annoying. How do I change it to my home directory *I.E /home/theif519* instead of /home/theif519/Doc* ?

Is there a file I have to edit or something?

General :: Script To Input Commands Into Gnome-terminal?

Nov 24, 2010

I'm trying to get a script to open a gnome-terminal and input commands into it, just as you would typing them in. That way, I can automate commands using bash, even if the terminal is running a non-bash program like telnet, mysql, vim, etc.

So, for instance..

I would like to open telnet to connect to a mud (I'm aware of the security concerns) and input commands through a script.

This way, I can log in, enter name/password, and do some start-game stuff automatically.

This isn't just for a mud, though. I'd like to be able to script inputs for any terminal application... maybe automate vim, mysql, or whatever.

General :: Start Terminal In Specific Folder In Ubuntu 10.10?

Apr 16, 2011

I keep all of my web design work under /var/www/(application_name). Nine times out ten, when I open a terminal, I'm heading to the www folder - cd /var/www. I would love to make that my "home" folder for the terminal, so it would just open there - I know if I ctrl+shift+t to open a new tab it defaults to the same dir, but it would be nice to have the first opened terminal default to there. Is this possible, or is there a better way to go about this?

Now when I start the computer and select ubuntu it goes to a log in screen. I type in my user name and password and all I get is a terminal screen in the top left. If I close this I go through a 'broken screen' and back to the sign in.
