General :: Can't Input Password In Command Line (ubuntu)?
Sep 19, 2010
When Linux ask for my password in command line,my keyboard becomes unresponsive just for that moment or let me put it this way,until i need to write my password my keyboard is unresponsive,but for all other things is fine.or for example,i can input my password when i have a graphic interface but i can't with command line or i can't login to my computer from command lineexcuse me if my question is doll,i moved from windows to ubuntu just lastweek,( & i am flying high in sky with ubuntu & digging a very deep hole for windows too!!.)
I am writing a script to get hardware information of a particular UNIX machine. To do this, I ftp a shell script (commands to get h/w information) to the target machine and then use SSH to remote the remote script.With FTP, I can pass a password accepted as input the shell script. How can I pass the same password to SSH ? This is because I do not want the user to enter the password twice.
I have the following commande /sbin/fuser -f -u /u/DT01/F010107 1>/tmp/null 2>/tmp/seausr.T0069 when executing as root 'su' this give me all user using the file. but when tried with 'sudo' i am asked with 'user password'. Is ther anyway to simply get the result without having to supply a password and to see all user not only me. (i have the file open also).
It has been happening to me since I started to use this laptop from the company for a linux test bed. Several times a day, when I do something from the command line, for example running an application connecting to another host on the internet, etc,it comes to a freeze and does not come out of it. I can not do anything else than a forced reboot from the power button, because the keyboard and the mouse do not respond. This work laptop is a lenovo W500, running on ubuntu jaunty, release 9.04. I have not encountered this problem before with my personal laptop though. My person laptop is a lenovo X61s, running on ubuntu karmic, release 9.10Should I reinstall the work laptop with some other version of ubuntu? Could it be some hardware problem ? What tools should I use to diagnose
I'm using recordmydesktop for screencasts and currently use pavucontrol to select the monitor as the input source, as shown in many guides across the Internet, but I can't find anything on how to do it from the command line. How can I select a monitor as the audio input source for recordmydesktop from the command line?
I have an executable with input options, like so: Code: ./executable -n 42 -s 42 I've added gcov to the makefiles (compiling with --coverage, -fprofile-arcs, and -ftest-coverage, and linking with -lgcov). It builds fine and creates executable.gcno.
When I try to run gcov, gcov things the options belong to it: Code: $ gcov ./executable -n 42 -s 42 gcov: invalid option -- 's' Usage: gcov [OPTION]... SOURCEFILE... When I use quotes this happens:
While trying to download themes for fedora 12,I get to the end it ask for my PW (in sudo) then says it is incorrect.When in graphic inter phase all my passwords are excepted.I've been reading the linux manuel. but can't find the anwser.If I am to put anouther password in where do I do that and how.
I have Fedora 14 with minimal installation (without graphical interface and so on) and the application I've been working needs to be initialized on boot up. So, I need to disable the login prompt (and password) by command line. How can I do it? I've seen by GUI, but with command line nothing...
I installed Lucid. I used to have Ubuntu 9.10 and to connect my iPod to my laptop's speakers. There was an option in 9.10 in the Sound Options to change the Mic Input into a Line Input. But now unfortunately I can't find it in Lucid have only 2 audio ports in the laptop: Headphone port, Mic port.
I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu 10.04 using the Alternate CD. The machine was wiped, and I used most of the default settings.
I used a thirteen character user id which consisted of mixed case letters and numbers, and an eighteen character password that contains mixed case letters and numbers and a # sign.
When I rebooted, the command-line login would not accept my password. I assumed I had somehow made a mistake, and just wiped the machine again and reinstalled. This time I was very careful with the user name/pw.
Again, the command-line login did not accept my password!
On a hunch, I took an old Ubuntu 7.10 Alternate CD and erased the machine again. I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu. AGAIN --- it will not accept my password even though I'm 100% sure it is correct.
I want to run gsettings list-schemas (which return a list of about 100 names separated by spaces)and somehow direct each name one at a time as the input to this command:gsettings list-recursivelyI've tried it with awk, and standard | piping and also as a string variable strvar=$(gsettings list-schemas) and using the $strvar as the input butam missing something in between I'm sure like for - while or proper syntax of awk etc
I'm basically setting up two sshfs mounts and I have it set up so I run one command but type my password twice.Is there an easy to way to input a password using bash and pass that variable to another process asking for a password?
When I use the scp command, here is a command prompt "Input password:",Now I want to use a one line command to perform the scp command.I tested the "echo "password" | scp xxx email@example.com:/", but failed.
I am an absolute Linux Beginner who is being required to do a bit of admin work because the boss just fired the old linux admin. Unfortunately, one of our employees cannot remember her password to her email account and as such I need to reset it on our linux server.What I want to check is that this email account is actually a linux user account and I simply will reset the password for it using the passwd command from the root login. Is that correct?
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,
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 have a file with two fields of numbers that I want to use as input for another program.
The above code does not work, as I think it would take the whole first and second fields as the input for one particular instance of the program 'inputbashangle'. What I want is to get the first two numbers from the first line of the file 'outfailtest', execute 'inputbashangle' with them, then move on to the first two numbers of the second line for all the lines of 'outfailtest'.
I would like to ask the following: 1) ls -l |grep test -> this will grep every "ls -l" output line 2) ls -1 |xargs grep test -> this will grep every single file with test 3) ls -1 |xargs echo -> this will echo directory list 4) ls -1 |echo -> this does nothing!!!
My question is: how some command can receive input from "both sides" (grep can grep whole output or every single file - xargs, the same is for i.e. wc command). 4) echo does nothing (it's a single echo command).
