General :: Triggered Process - Start Automatically When The Desktop Finishes Loading
Jun 29, 2011
I am running Debian Squeeze with icewm as desktop environment. I am trying to start feh automatically when the desktop finishes loading. I have tried crontab -e with @reboot /usr/bin/feh /home/user/photos/ & I think that the best way to do this would be to monitor for the x-session-manag process. The reason I think this would be a good solution is that I killed x-session-manag and it killed my x-session and straight to command line interface.
I want to start process automatically For Ex:- To start snort it need the root user, So here I need a script which will start snort automatically without asking the root user or password.So that I can start snort from anywhere as same as root
I mount a few locations from a VMware virtual machine, but currently every time I start up VMware I need to re-mount the locations once the VMware image has started up fully, which gets tedious. I'd like to be able to mount them automatically when VMware is started.
I generally double-click the .VMX file (which is associated with VMware Player) to launch the virtual machine, but once it has finished loading I would need to run the mount commands manually or execute a bash script that does it.
Is there any way you can think of to have it done automatically? One way I can think of is to start my virtual machine by running a script that starts VMware player, sleeps for a minute or so, then runs the mount command - but setting the right sleep interval would be difficult because this varies a fair bit - and overall, it's a solution that's kinda icky and that I'd like to avoid if there's some better option.
We are having a Linux box with Tcpdump continuously running on it to monitor bunch of sources. Separate Tcpdump process runs in a background for each host for monitoring traffic. I use -w option with it to save the capture in the pcap format to analyze it later. Now what I need is, if the Linux machine gets rebooted amidst of its packet capturing activity, I want tcpdump to automatically start the process again for every host without overwriting previous captures.
Remember: Without overwriting previous captures . . . Basically, I will be keeping all the tcpdump commands in the shell script and will load the script at startup during the linux boot. Is there any way to achieve this case, where by on rebooting, Tcpdump does not overwrite previous captures?
this is not specifically a slackware related question, but since done on 2 slackware boxes... the situation is, i have one box for browsing and other desktop activities and another box acting as router/local server. what i want to achieve is that the router box would look on a nfs mounted folder for new *.torrent files (which i put there from the desktop box) and if there is a new file, it would start downloading it automatically. also a good thing would be if it would notify me when finished.so how would you go about itwhat torrent client would you use and so on? maybe someone has already done something like this?
I have a computation going which takes a long, but uncertain, amount of time. I have another computation which needs to be run, but _after_ the first one is done. I won't be at the computer at that time to manually start the new process. I've done some Googling, and I found how to delay execution by a specific amount of time (e.g. "start process x in exactly 8 minutes from now), but that isn't quite what I want to do. Essentially, I'd like to tell the shell, "When process #nnnn finishes running, then start process x". Is there a way to do this?
I have it configured in the application settings to do that, and I've checked the Startup Applications and indeed it is listed there.However when I start up the icon doesn't appear in the tray and my wallpaper won't change every 10 minutes like it's supposed to until I actually go to System > Preferences and run Desktop Drapes manually.
I've got an older graphics card I'm trying to use. It actually runs fine through the bios and even works when fedora is loading. But once fedora finishes loading half the screen turns into thousands of multicolored horizontal lines.
I have installed "open-SUSE 11.4" on a "500GB Free Agent External Hard Drive". I didn't have any problem in booting since last week that I booted it from my laptop. Also I did it before several times from then when I try to boot it e.g. from an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz" PC the time between loading INITRD and starting boot sequence messages lasts nearly 30 minutes!(i didn't actually measure it but it take a long time in the same order). after starting boot sequence which is showed on monitor everything looks normal. e.g copy of files would be done by speeds between 2MB/s to 30 MB/s depending on the targets.I used to use the external hard derive to boot from different laptops and PC's from start but I didn't have such a problem anytime.
The graphical install goes fine all the way up until it finishes the "Performing Installation" process. Then the screen goes blank. Tried each display option for the install, and finally the text option got me through to completion.So now I've gotten to the command line, and when i try to startkde, i get the message "$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server."I'm not well versed in linux yet, so a lot of these messages don't yet mean much to me. In the course of messing around with this I'm getting the feeling that it's Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 that's causing the problem here.
I use Opensuse 11 with fvwm. How can I get conky start automatically when I start fvwm?
I setup the conky under fvwm session for my Opensuse 11 but it won't start automatically. I am wondering how to write some kind of scripts to force it to start automatically and with a delay about 10 seconds after fvwm starts.
loading zd1211 linux driver after I booted up into BT4. The only command I figure out is tar zxvfZD1211LnxDrv_2_16_0_0.tar. From here I don't know what to do? Can someone give step by step commands to walk me thru the loading process?
I just removed the gnome from the ubuntu 9.10.then i reninstall the xfce4.i am invoking the xfce4 by typing#startxi want to start the xfce4 as usual like the gnome did automatically by asking login window.
I am using Kde 4.4 and I would like to start one of the applications automatically after every login to the system. How can I configure it? I remember I managed to find a dialog window in one of the previous versions, but I can't find it now.
I'm wondering how I start it automatically when I boot up the ubuntu 10.04? especially, when I created the user "postgres", I set a password to it. every time I issued "su - postgres" command, I need to give it a password.
One of our client was complaining that their server was down and mysql and apache services were down. The server is Ubuntu 8.04. When we checked, the permissions of /etc/init.d/mysql and /etc/init.d/apache2 were changed to 644 from 755. How could this be possible?I need your valuable suggestions on how can i monitor whether any malicious intrusions or scripts are running.
I need help adding a nohup command in this command line: su - rhx12 -c "/rhythx/rhythx/bin start /rhythx/rhyth" When I execute the script using root on the command line it works fine. But, when I reboot the server the process doesn't start. This script will go into the etc/init.d and rc2.d directory.
#!/bin/bash case $i in start) su - rhx12 -c "/rhythx/rhythx/bin start /rhythx/rhythx" ;;
I have switched to openbox from Gnome and would now like to stop using Metacity altogether. When I was using metacity I had both a control theme (e.g. gtk theme) and fonts set up how I liked them in gnome-appearance-proporties. When Openbox starts, it gets my window borders up properly (ofc.) but fails to render my fonts properly and uses the wrong gtk theme. I can't find anywhere to specify which gtk theme to use or what method to render my text with. After Openbox is finished doing it's thing, and I run gnome-apperance-properties manually, it will automatically set everything to it's proper value, but I don't want to have to do this as it takes several seconds to preform and I'd rather not have it jury rigged like this.
I want to start recording when someone starts talking, and stop recording when it becomes silent. I guess if there is stream audio processing tool like ImageMagick, so I can strip away blank sections like this:
