General :: Remote Desktop With Vinagre On Getting Command Line?
Sep 23, 2010
I'm playing around with trying to access a Fedora 13 system from a Ubuntu 10.04 system. Both are relatively new vanilla installations.I went into System - Preferences - Remote Desktop on the Fedora system and enabled Remote Desktop. When I connect with the Ubuntu system (ssh), I can login, but all I see is an ssh terminal session. I was expecting the desktop environment (GNOME right?) to come up.
I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 on a home server. I can connect to it using vinagre from another computer just fine. However, if I restart the server I can no longer vnc to it because I need to log in (start a gnome session). Is there a way to do this using just vinagre? Do I need to install another vnc server on my home server? The problem is that I don't want to carry a monitor from another room just so I can log in and start a gdm session if the home server gets restarted.
how to enable remote desktop by command line in 10.4 lucid? The command sudo gconftool-2 -s -t bool/desktop /gnome/remote_access/enabled true doesn't work, because when I open /system/pref/remote desktop, it is still not activated.
I am playing around with the idea of being able to use a cloud or instance based service to install Ubuntu 9.10 Server. This will enable me to have remote access via SSH command line.So far, I've installed Ubuntu 9.10 Server + Ubuntu Desktop to a virtual machine. I can access this via SSH and locally via the desktop. However, in the real environment the only access I am going to have initially is via SSH.
I would like to be able to connect using Windows Remote Desktop or VNC (whichever is easier and most importantly - most secure) to the machine.. even though the desktop is on there, I need to somehow configure the remote access all from the command line.I've had a read of various forums and have been trawling support forums for days but can't find a working solution for 9.10 Server or that fits my situation above where I will not have any physical access to the desktop or machine to configure remote desktop. It all has to be done via SSH/command line.
I have a Debian Linux desktop. I want to change the screen's brightness without pressing the brightness button of my monitor. How can I do this? is this possible in command line or is there an application to be installed?
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'm running a 9.1 server. I had the ubuntu-desktop installed for training purposes and I decided to remove it.I followed these steps:URL...Now when I restart the server, I do not have access to my command line. Or more correctly, I dont have a prompt to enter anything into. the last thing it shows on startup is:restarting OpenBSD Secure Shell server sshd.I can login remotely with no issue. Apache is working fine. MYSQL is working fine, Memcached is working fine. But no clue how to manage the server from the server itself.
Just got the new Dual Quad Server and after the installation was completed, It was the destkop edition... Can I get a reference on how to install the "Command Line Only" version of CentOS, OR Can I run the desktop edition and still be able to host VPS's and Web Servers, etc...
What's the best procedure to kill a desktop window from the command line? I'm having the problem on a FC 12-64 machine that using the File Browser window locks up most of the desktop. This might be software problem or it could be due to a defective mouse. I haven't had time to see if other windows cause the same problem. To do that, I'd like to kill the File Browser window.
The only windows that work are terminal windows. So I tried using the command line from a terminal to kill the file browser. When I do a kill -9 on the process involving nautilus, the process dies, the File browser window flickers off and back on, and then a new process involving nautilus appears in the list displayed by ps -ef. Is there a way to kill the File Browser window and make it stay dead?
I installed the latest version off the download site yesterday, when first booting an error message came up that my hardware does not support the most recent desktop environment so I should switch to classic. After a bit of googling I found out how to do this.
The problem is that my hardware really doesn't support the current desktop environmet, I can't get the windows to appear, I just get black rectangles in the middle of the screen instead, so the GUI is inaccessable.
I am looking for instructions on changing the desktop environment from a command line (which I can boot to).
I had chosen automatic logon. Then updated to 10.04. During logout to change Desktop Environment/Session, I noticed that GDM login screen had an option for KDE session although I had not installed KDE. I got curious. So I tried it. System hangs. Restart does not help because somehow gdm proceeds to the KDE session although I did not choose it to be default session. So I had only CLI left.
I got over it by stopping gdm (/etc/init.d/gdm stop) and removing gdm and installing xdm. Anyway, what is the proper way? How to order desktop environment from CLI and/or where is the default desktop environment option written in a file?
I have added an application launcher to my desktop and it works fine. However, I want to be able to feed parameters to the launcher before I launch the application. So, for instance, if the command is normally "/usr/bin/foo something" I want to be able to add the "something" parameter dynamically after clicking the launcher but before the application launches. Is this possible in Fedora?
Is there any way to install a Ubuntu server and access the server remotely via a Ubuntu desktop environment instead of a SSH command line?
I will be installing a Ubuntu server in an office where the office manager will need to be able to do simple things like add/remove users, access filesystems, etc. She can handle these tasks in Ubuntu desktop/GUI, but it is impractical for her to have to learn how to use the CLI terminal to do this stuff.
Will I have to install desktop Ubuntu on the server to do this, or can I install Ubuntu server version and setup another computer Ubuntu desktop to remotely login graphically?
i've gotten my fedora 12 to the point where i can run python3 scripts from command line and can call up python 2.6.2 idle with the command 'idle' from command line. what command will call up python3 (3.1.2 to be exact) idle?
I've set up a low cost box with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx at home behind a router, and managed to get remote access running. My goal is to be able to host a small website and work on it remotely, so I isntalled ftp (vsftpd). When I tried to edit the vsftpd.conf file in Vinagre from work, I could only open it read-only, no surprise. When I tried 'sudo gedit' or 'sudo gedit /etc/vsftpd.conf' from terminal in Vinagre, I received the prompt for the password to elevate privileges (again, expected); however, after I hit Enter, nothing happens. I've tried a bunch of different things, but I can't get it to work. I can stop & start my ftp service with 'sudo service vsftpd stop/start' and it seems to work fine.
Up until now I've been using plink to remotely compile a project I'm working on. But recently the administrator from the remote server updated the distribution and messed up some configurations. My project has a lot of scripts written for tc shell (tcsh), and now the default shell is bash. There is no way to change this. Another problem is that now I need to run newgrp to change my default user group.
So... to work around this problem I've changed my .bashrc to run newgrp and then tcsh. If I do a normal connection using SSH, everything works as expected, but when using plink, or SSH to remotely execute commands, the shell gets stuck on the newgrp command. I think it's because both applications need a return value from newgrp to send the command I need to execute. Remotely running scripts that call a shell also get stuck like newgrp (newgrp also opens a new shell and that's why it gets stuck) my .bashrc is as follows:
user_grp=`id -g` if [ $user_grp != 4919 ]; then newgrp new_group_id else
I know my way around MS Windows much better, but I just don't feel right trying to program something for Android on a Microsoft operating system. I am interested in Android programming so I followed the instructions on [URL] to install the environment on my computer...
I just installed the JDK, SDK, Eclipse successfully (or I assume):
* When I get to Step 4 where I'm supposed to run 'android' it will not run. I get the error message "android: command not found" (I am definitely in the right directory).
** When I double-click it in nautilus, it opens up in gedit. I can set the permissions in nautilus (through the properties - Allow executing file as a program) and get it to work,
