And it will tell me which desktop my terminal is connected to ( per [URL])

How can I determine what desktop number the current gnome terminal in a gnome session is connected to?

General :: Start Up Gnome Desktop From Remote Terminal?

Jul 27, 2009

I looked around for threads addressing this issue and some have come close to answering it, but I have yet to see a definitive yes or no. Anyway - Here's my issue:

I can SSH into my home computer (Ubuntu 9.04 running Gnome) from work (Win XP Pro) using RealVNC via Putty tunnels. This has been working flawlessly for me for awhile now. I was messing around in the terminal window and accidentally rebooted the linux box (home computer) while I was at work. No big deal I thought. So I re-start the Putty connection, and it is back up in no time. Then I try to start the VNC connection, and no go, connection refused. I remember seeing that in order for the VNC connection to work, I had to be logged into the Gnome desktop already on the Ubuntu box.

Is it possible to log in and start up a Gnome desktop session from the terminal command line in Putty so I can get the VNC connection back?

Ubuntu Networking :: Gnome Desktop Freezes Connected To A Wireless Lan?

Jun 21, 2011

I upgraded Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 on my IBM Thinkpad T41. [URL]... Since I did this, my gnome desktop freezes constantly after I connected to a wireless lan. It doesn't freeze immediately but a couple of minutes later. syslog gave me the hint that it could be a mistake in loading a module for my intel wireless card. syslog:

General :: Determine Number Of Blocks For A Partition?

Jul 1, 2010

Can someone explain how to determine the number of blocks to determine the number of cylinders for a new partition on hard drive.

Why is block size divided by 1024?

I think I understand unit size is the total bytes per cylinder, I get that. I understand the anatomy of the hard drive (i.e. heads, sectors, cylinders.

My problem is, if I need to calculate the number of cylinders needed for let's say a 20G partition on a 120G drive.

General :: Launching TMUX Using Gnome Terminal

Oct 18, 2010

I'm a little confuse regarding how one launches tmux. When I launch my terminal (current gnome-terminal), I would like to have tmux up and running. I'm currently doing this by calling "tmux" in my .zshenv (kind of like .bashrc in bash). This does in fact launch tmux, but has some annoying side effects. First, hitting Ctrl-D to exit the shell, only kills tmux, and leaves the tmux-less gnome-terminal still running. An additional Ctrl-D will kill that as well. Second, when ssh into a box with this setup, I get a second, nested instance of tmux. I don't want tmux to launch again when I ssh. Is this the right approach, how should tmux be launched usually?

General :: Indistinguishable Active Tab In Gnome Terminal?

Jun 24, 2011

I am running Gnome 2.30.2 and Gnome Terminal 3.0.1 on my Debian Sid and recently the active tab became almost indistinguishable from other tabs. It is actually the same colour.Changing the themes didn't help much and only using high contrast theme makes a difference which is the theme I would rather not use.Have been experimenting with ~/.gtkrc-2.0 script but that does not seem to work at all even after restarting X-Server.

style "gnome_terminal_notebook"
#fg[NORMAL] = "#00ff00"

General :: Unable To Launch Gnome-terminal?

Nov 3, 2010

I cannot launch gnome-terminal from the Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal menu. However a gnome-terminal process is created (I can see it in a terminal that I happened to have open) but it doesn't seem to actually run (I have several of these terminals in the ps list now but they haven't actually run as terminals and it's been at least 2 hrs). At first I thought they weren't running at all until I checked (it looked like the Starting Terminal message at the bottom of the gnome GUI ran abnormally long and then terminated so I thought at first that they weren't running at all).

Also it looks like my gnome session is clobbering the CPU: running at or over 80% of cpu time at times (it does change but mostly it is high). All I'm doing is minor web work + updating a file in Open Office - when I noticed this I got out of Open Office and that had no effect. So it looks like application software is running (this was launched from a terminal) but running from the menu seems to result in processes with low priority (that doesn't seem right though). This just started today and my system has been mostly running correctly for a year or so (last year I got an Acer 5532 on sale, wiped it and installed Fedora 11).

General :: Determine The Number Of Physical CPUs Under Both Windows?

Sep 9, 2010

When running cat /proc/cpuinfo under Linux, a variety information is kicked-back. For example:

> cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 15
model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 5130 @ 2.00GHz


First, what does all of that actually mean? I see I have a processor 0 and processor 1. Does that mean Linux is reporting both cores of the CPU, or, since it is a VM, the two that I happen to have right now (even if they're on physically different CPUs)?

Second, how can I get a similar information dump form the command line in Windows? Third, is there a way using either platform to determine the number of physical CPUs versus total CPU cores?

General :: Black Backgrounds Appear Grey On Gnome-terminal

May 18, 2010

Running gnome under Ubuntu Lucid

$ env | grep TERM

I had to edit both my .muttrc and my vim colorscheme to change the background color from black to none in order to get a proper black background (or, more accurately, to retain the terminal's default black background). Setting it to black resulted in a dark grey background. This only happens with gnome-terminal; konsole, xterm and rxvt are fine.

General :: Start Server With GUI (kde/gnome) To Terminal By Default?

Jun 13, 2011

I've set up home server, which doesn't have to be as powerful as other servers, so I decided to install GUI because of applications that are alternatives to classical GUI applications in headless version requires more skill/knowledge. However, I don't want server to run GUI always at start (which gnome-desktop package does). I need some configuration in KDE/gnome/xfce (haven't decided) that doesn't start GUI after each start (e.g is required to type startx or equivalent command to start GUI)(off topic: can you also recommend good remote-administration with GUI transport ?)

General :: How To Specify Text Message Color On Gnome Terminal

Aug 11, 2010

OS is CentOS 5.5, and GNOME terminal emulator (v2.16.0). However I regard the question is not related with OS/Gnome version level. My question is whether if color setting is available or not for the text character outputted by kernel (or shell, i.e. Bash). Normally we can specify/modify text character color (and background color) with property setting on the terminal. However, it only takes affect to the text for inputting character, not for outputted character by kernel/shell. For example, when we type a shell command "ls -al <cr>", the text appears with the color along with the terminal property.

Meanwhile, the text message displayed on the console (output message against "ls -al" command), in this case it must be file and/or directory names, will appear with some preset color which we've not preliminarily set. In my case, I set Text color with "White", Background color with "Black". Then I expect the text output message color displayed by kernel/shell would be some brighter color. But the color is "blue" which does not look better brightness against "Black" background. For this situation what I'd like to know is how to set/specify the color outputted by the kernel/shell (or whether or not it is possible to set manually).

General :: Script To Input Commands Into Gnome-terminal?

Nov 24, 2010

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.

General :: Transparency For Terminal -gnome/ubuntu - Zorin ?

Jun 9, 2011

I am currently reading a few different command line tutorials and have my terminal set to almost completely clear. In dreamlinux it made it easy to see what the tutorial said, While still letting me use the terminal as I read. In zorinOS (Ubuntu build using Gnome) I have it set to almost total clear, and what I get for the background is my wallpaper ... Regardless of whether there is a window open or not. The only changes I have made are in the preference settings, and not to any files.

But on the part where I set transparency here are my options (grey is not selectable,[x] is chosen option,{dir} is drop menu, --*---- *=current setting):

General :: Turn Off Font-antialiasing Only For Gnome-terminal But Not For Other Applications?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm running GNOME (gnome-session under xmonad). I want to turn off antialiasing (i.e. use monochrome mode) for fonts in gnome-terminal. But I want to retain antialiasing for other applications, like Firefox. Is this possible?

Antialiasing is great and almost necessary for using Firefox or Chrome. But it makes the fonts in gnome-terminal blurry at sizes around 12 or smaller.

Otherwise, I'll just have to use xterm, which seems not to anti-alias its fonts under any circumstances.

General :: Make Gnome Terminal App Support Output Search?

Oct 2, 2010

Using a default terminal and bash, there is no functionality to search the standard output of commands.

One can gain such functionality using other tools, like emacs shell or screen, but I am wondering why such a useful feature is missing, I do remember a simple C-F used to work in terminals.

Is there a way to make the Gnome terminal app support output search? or is there a better terminal app that support searching output natively?
