General :: Terminal With Options - Save Common Commands To A Hot Key?
Oct 12, 2010
I am looking for a terminal app that will allow me to save my password and maybe set up some sessions since I often log into multiple machines each day. Also is there something out there that will allow me to save common commands to a hot key?
I was trying to navigate by terminal and tried to change directories by typing- cd ./documents and terminal states no such directory. I can only navigate folders that I created with mkdir. Do I need to set permissions somewhere? Yes documents does exist in my home folder and I tried to open others with no luck.
I need to know what commands we have people run in the terminal in order to help them troubleshoot their issue. The reason being, is I was reading a thread where someone was stating about how they had to do all this and all that from a terminal and what not and that there should be a GUI Tool.
Well I'm going to make a GUI tool that allows them to obtain all the necessary information (and fixes are possible too) to help with their issue that they're currently having. For example: I know we run lsmod for sound issues, but what other commands do you have them run to check sound, video, network, etc. It will be made in wxPython so that it can be easily sent to others. If it becomes quite useful, then maybe we could get it in the repos.
I long while ago (when I was in collage) I used VIM a bit. I have not used it since and would like to get back into using it. I remember there being a way to split the screen within VIM to show common commands on the bottom portion of the screen. I've searched a while and cannot find how to set this up.
I've recently lost my window options, had to somehow manipulate my way to Xchat and ask some people how do I get it back (it was metacity --replace, and after I decided to stop the command and run it in background the X was completely useless so I had to do killall -u user). And that was after the internet connection stopped working for some reason (might've been the ISP).
The thing is, after using linux a long time, I still get the feeling that on dire situations, I don't know the good tricks (stuff like metacity --replace). I feel like a really need like a "rescue" cheatsheet for things like: how to save the X no matter what without pressing reset how to reset the system to "normal state" how to connect to the internet through the command line how to monitor what the X is doing (using ubuntu linux 10.04 btw)
I know CD, Apt-Get, and Dir, but besides that I know mostly Command Prompt commands and that's not many, and they seem to differ from Terminal. What are some useful Terminal commands that I should know how to use in times or need?
i don't know if there is a way to check or see the list of commands available to each shell you decide to use, be it BASH,KSH, etc in your terminal. You know how its works in microsoft, in cmd-line or dos, you type HELP and its brings all the commands available for use.
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?
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.
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 started using computer when it was all dos driven so thought i was going to be fine using the terminal in ubuntu the problem i am facing is i can not quite get my head round why is it if i load the terminal. and the first this i type is dir or ls it gives me a list off directories. So why is it if i type cd /pictures i get no such file or directory ? Confused
This also bugging the jebus out off me is i am trying to get into my usb pen drive from the terminal to run a program i have on there.
so i type cd /media then typed ls is displayed New Volume <-- This being the name off my pen drive i have tried every this to get into there but the commands i would use in dos are not playing ball.
Can some one please explain how to get into my usb pen then tell me were i can go read on this as i really can not get my head around this at moment.
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.
is there a Terminal command to open a Target file (same as the one opens when you want to upload a file), let user choose the file and when he clicks open, be able to save his choice?for example:echo "Choose source file"--> command needed to browseand then open or save path to that file
if you do the command conky in terminal, it starts conky ofcourse, but it also shows output to that terminal so you can't do any other commands to that terminal, Is their an option like you can do with the '&' sign in other cases? If you do the '&' sign with conky it still gives output, also the conky -d command gives output...
Is there some way to send commands to another "pseudo terminal" or otherwise access one when the desktop environment has frozen to get a program there to save its data? (i.e. after logging in remotely) I tried "echoing" to "/dev/pts/X" (X = number) but that doesn't seem to work. It just displays whatever is echoed there -- it is not accepted as input.
