General :: Lost Command Line Prompt After Starting Totem?
Feb 11, 2010
At the Command Line Prompt I am able to start some Applications (such as openoffice.org or evolution) and the command line prompt re-appears after program is launched and I can continue working in that Terminal. However, other Applications, such as Totem or Blackboard will launch from the Terminal but the Prompt does not re-appear. Where Totem is concerned I get a message stating "sha module is deprecated use hashlib module instead". Where Blackboard is concerned the command line does not reappear. I have to use Ctrl + C to get the command line back but this closes the application as well! Or, I have to open a new Terminal. why some applications will start from the command line and others do not? How do you get the prompt back (other than q or Ctrl + c) thanks to all and kindest regards ( I am using Ubuntu 9.04)
I'm running Red Hat Linux 5.4 on HP DL580 server with 16 processors and 64 GB of RAM. I'm connecting to the server remotely through SSH. after entering the password, it takes time to return the command line, if I click ctrl+c during this time, I'll have the command line prompt but not the correct bash prompt (I have to run bash to pass to my correct prompt).I tried to install Apache on the server, ./configure took 4 hours to finish instead of 1 or two minutes, Oracle installation same behavior. Server Disks are mirrored using RAID controller.
I installed Fedora 10 on a pc I built from a barebones package, I have had no problems over the past couple months until recently. When I start up the pc the OS lags on a black screen with the cursor blinking. I have searched forums but I guess since I am a newbie I am still lost in the translations. What I am trying to do is save my files that are on the pc to a DVD-RW or my external hard drive before I have to reinstall the software again.
My questions are as follows: How can I locate the files on the hard drive? When I have the bootable cd-rom inserted I am unable to locate the HDD. How can I transfer my files using the command line prompt? Finally, is it possible just to upgrade to the latest Fedora without losing my files and going through the data recovery process head ache? Or can I reinstall the OS and not lose my files?

Which software of Linux to use for command line running? Since I am using MySQL to run from Linux and want to run Linux, which software to download in Linux? There are multiple ones. Can I run .sh scripts and learn how to operate on Linux using the command line? Also use MySQL as backend on Linux?
I'm studying Information Technology and doing Linux as part of it. One of the questions in my text book is: Describe three different ways to start a command line interpreter when using the Gnome desktop of openSUSE Linux. I can't for the life of me make sense out of it.
I was expecting a gnome window login prompt after installation was done. Instead I am getting a command line login prompt.Am I right expecting a X-Windows login prompt?I login successfully, but I am dropped into a shell (bash) instead of a gnome desktop.

Yesterday i finally got around to installing my graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce 8400M CS) on fedora 12 by using the command yum install kmod-nvidia the terminal then told me that it installed correctly so i rebooted my system. Now when i boot up into fedora, it loads and when the sign in window is about to appear instead my screen shows random colors all over the place. I am hoping someone can tell me how to remove this via the command line prior to actually starting fedora.
I tried a program called BarPanel, which replaces the Gnome Panels. The installation instructions told me to download the program installer (the program installs automatically for Debian/Ubuntu users). Then I had to go to System > Preferences > Sessions to remove the gnome-panel entry and add the BarPanel one. So far so good. On re-starting, the new panels were installed to my desk top in bright green! The problem was that a lot of the icons don't work. The action menu does nothing and there is no entry for Sessions in the System menu, so I can't go back and undo. I have re-installed gnome-panel under Synaptic, without any success. I un-installed BarPanel, so I now don't have any panels at all now! One good thing is that I have Cairo-dock on my desktop, so I have access to several programs, including the terminal.
Can someone out there give me the command line instructions to get the gnome panels back.
After contracting malware on Vista i decided to switch over to Linux and chose to start of with Ubuntu because of the graphical interface. that being said, you have no doubt inferred that i have no coding experience. basically i was hoping to find some nice tutorials and sites for Ubuntu. Also, i did downloaded the suggested programs and patches but im still experiencing problems with Adobe,flash, and and opening .exe files. for the latter, when i click on .exe files it is equivalent of using explorer on windows so i was wondering how to use the command prompt to open them. supposedly linux is susceptible to malware so if you could please suggest a anti -malware program.
This is my first time on this forum. I am a statistician. I am trying to subset a large dataset by specifing the starting & end line. The dataset is pretty large (more than 300 million lines), containing around 1.2 million lines for a person. So I would like to split the dataset into per person consecutively. I tried wrap r codes, but R seems to have to read from top to where I want although I specified that it should skip the lines that other tasks have read. So the memory is increasing with the task ID. Finally I got kicked out by the administer.
I guess that shell may do it much simple and elegently. First I thought of "split" command. But the the file has a header of 10 lines. So I can't split it into even size chuncks.

I'm looking for a way to get my IP address using the command prompt in Linux. I know when you type "ifconfig" you can get your local IP address (i.e. 192.168.0.103), but I'm looking for my IP address that I get from my ISP. How can I get this from Linux without having to visit some website?
