Fedora :: How To Set Auto Complete Feature For SCP

Aug 18, 2010

How do I have an auto completion feature for scp? I often need to 'scp ' a file to a remote server, then I type:

PHP Code:
I'd begin to type tab before or after the input of @. But the available choices are mainly:
@localhost6, @localhost.localdomain, @localhost, etc..

Which file records these hosts name? Second, to execute a program in current directory, I have to type ./program, how can I omit the prefix, or I could type it as I type "octave",etc.

Ubuntu :: Unity Alt-f2 Auto-complete?

May 2, 2011

I'm very much used to typing "evo" for launching evolution, chrom to get chromium etc, when on alt+f2.

Now, in Unity, I get suggestions as icons when typing, but not the "auto-complete" I had in 10.10.

It's annoying to have to use the mouse to select the application to run each time.

Ubuntu :: Auto-complete Not Working On Firefox?

Dec 30, 2010

A very annoying bug has been around for some time now. Auto-complete in the address field on Firefox does not work after Ubuntu resumes after screensaver. What I have to do is to minimise the browser and then maximise it again... it then auto-complete as it should. Surely I cannot be the only one noticing this? I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 3.6.13.

Ubuntu :: Folder Name Auto Complete In Terminal?

Jul 27, 2011

In older versions of ubuntu I could use tab to autocomplete folder names multiple times in one command in a terminal, for example:

tar -cvf myapp.tar --exclude='/var/www/f[TAB]older-name/cache/*' --exclude='/var/www/f[TAB]older-name/sessions/*' /var/www/f[TAB]older-name

Now only the first tab works, is there any way to get this behavior back?

Debian :: No Auto-complete Of E-mail Address Evolution

Aug 11, 2011

Despite enabling the "auto-complete" to complete an e-mail address from my personal Address-book, it doesn't work. After pressing on the "To"-button, no e-mail address is visible in the list of contacts. That is strange since the contacts are visible within the address book itself. However, when I typed the name of a contact within the "Search"-field of the address book, it also shows no result. Strange... Additional info: two days ago I replaced addressbook.db in Debian manually by the addressbook.db from Ubuntu 11.04 (I'm migrating from Ubuntu 11.04 to Debian Squeeze). It seems that there is no connection between the visible contacts in the address book and the rest of the Evolution. How can I solve it?

Fedora :: Prevent Terminal Escape $ Sign In Auto-complete F15?

Jun 15, 2011

I just installed F15 and although different, I like it a lot. One thing I don't like, however, is the default auto-completion of environment variables in the terminal. In F14 and older, if you type for instance


ls $HOME and hit TAB, auto-complete will list the contents of $HOME to search deeper, so to say. But in F15, the terminal automatically escapes the $ sign. If you do the same as above, you get


ls $HOME

instead of


ls /home/benny/

how to change the auto-complete settings of the terminal so that $'s are not escaped anymore?

Ubuntu :: Bash Commands' Auto-complete Not Working For Some Apps?

Jan 15, 2010

I've got an annoying problem that 'man' and some other commands do not auto-complete (via TAB). e.g. typing: man rsyn (TAB, TAB, TAB, etc) will not auto-complete to 'man rsync' however, if i 'sudo -s' & then try the above, 'man' auto-completes everytime. (Directories always auto-complete successfully) My ~/.bashrc contains:


# enable bash completion in interactive shells
if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ] && ! shopt -oq posix; then
. /etc/bash_completion

General :: Move A File To Some Path And Create That Path When It Doesn't Exist?

Oct 8, 2010

I use this command:


find ./ -atime +360

to figure out the files that haven't been accessed since 360 days. The command above will return results like this:


... etc

I'm taking here about tins of directories, thousands of files. I'm looking to find a command that makes me able to move the results above to another path, and to create that path once it doesn't exist like below:


mv /uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext /old-files/uploads/2010/02/some-file-name.ext

But I want the executed command to create this path



If it doesn't exist.

General :: Forcing An Absolute Path Where A Relative Path Is Expected

Feb 21, 2011

I have a program that takes a relative path as input appends it to a some path string to get the actual path.

Now all I can input is the relative path. So if I want to go one level above my input will be ../mypath.

If I know the depth of the path used internally, I can use .. as many times to go to the root directory and then give the absolute path. But suppose I do not know the depth of the directory, can I construct a relative path string such that it considers it as a relative path. One way could be to have enough .. in the path string so that I can force an absolute path for some maximum depth of path.

Is there some path string syntax that I am not aware of but can achieve this?

General :: Tar Is Causing A Complete Freeze?

Jun 13, 2010

I have a very simple bash script that just runs a series of backups using tar; for example, one of the lines reads:tar -czvpf /srv/backups/backup_home.tar.gz /homeThis script is scheduled to run every Friday, but occasionally I will schedule it to run before using 'at'. The script is located on the same disk as the backups are saved, I then transfer them off the machine manually (I've yet to automate this). I am only compressing files that are located on the server's disk, no files are being transferred over the network at all.

The problem is, occasionally it appears to be causing the 'server' I have running all the time to completely freeze. When this happens the machine does not power down and there are no entries in the log that indicate a problem. Everything simply stops until I press the reset button. Note that this issue also happens when you run the script manually and not just when it is run via cron or at.I *think* this might be happening when a large file is being compressed, but I'm not certain.

General :: How To Get Complete Backup Of Whole Computer

Mar 5, 2010

It's about creating a complete backup of my machine. What I want to do is completely backup my whole computer, everything!, because I've got it just right. If something were to go wrong then I want to restore right back to the way the system is right now (from a rescue disk). I know that using dd to do a byte level backup would be best but I read that it's not all that great for restoring the system (HDD's sizes must be the same).

Rsync looks favorite but can it copy the root directory. i.e. "rsync -a / /media/backup/" and all the partitions. I just not sure whether it can do the whole computer. Dump is another tool but it seems to have dependencies to tool versions. And again I don't know if it will do the whole system and how easy it is to restore. There is a tool called FSArchiver that looks to do what I want and it comes part of SystemRescueCd (a bootable CD used to fix computers). It turns out that the backup I'm looking to do is at the file system level where the tools above are really file level backups.

General :: Failure To Complete Installation Of 10.40.1

Sep 11, 2010

.After trying to instal 10.40 as a "guest" of Windows7 in its own partition on drive D I got all the way thru then re-booted to finish the install as requested. At that point after reboot I selected Ubuntu from the boot menu then it hung up after quickly displaying and overwriting some option numbers - probably for GRUB

I uninstalled 10.40 then tried Ubuntu 9.4. It worked better and gave me an option menu after the install reboot. If I chose "normal" it also hung up.I was succesful by chosing one of the other GRUB choices that it gave me.Now everything works but with an older version.
