General :: Display The Source Machine During A Remote X Session In The Title Bar?

Aug 8, 2011

In the past, when I open a gvim session on a remote machine, the title bar of gvim would show the machine name in brackets. I am not sure if this was done by the remote gvim itself, or the local window manager. In the past I have used gnome2, although I am currently using unity (and finding it rather frustrating). Is there some setting I can change to always force remote windows to display the source machine?

Software :: Remote X Over SSH / Gnome Session Running On The Client Machine?

Oct 15, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.04 over LAN; I can SSH -X into my server just fine, and am able to launch various applications (Nautilus, Gnome-Terminal, Disk Utility, etc) but I'd really like a Gnome desktop. When I've tried the various StartX commands and gnome-session, but something just isn't clicking. Is there a way to have a 'second' Gnome session running on the client over the first?

To pre-empt some obvious solutions; I don't wish to use VNC, the lag drives me nuts, and I'd like to keep my gnome session running on the client machine if possible. If it's not possible, that's fine; it just seems like there'd be a way to do it?

Ubuntu :: Minimize Nxclient Remote Fullscreen Session Causes Blank Local Display?

Jun 9, 2011

I'm running nxfree to log into my remote xubuntu PC from my local xubuntu laptop since the X protocol was broken.Has been working fine. Recently upgraded from Lucid 32bit to Maverick 64bit Xubuntu.Now when I run nxclient in fullscreen mode, if I minimize the window (or just log out) my local display does not return.I'm left with just the background colour. The windows are still there but not visible. For example I can:* randomly right-click and a menu pertaining to the invisible window appears;* press alt-tab and cycle through the windows but activating one does not display it (it remains invisible);* press ALT-F and bring up the current active (but invisible) application file menu;Basically I press ALT-F and ALT-TAB and close everything and then log out and log back in to restore the windows/panels.

Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0

If I run the same command to an anothermachine which is running Ubuntu 8.04 it works fine and xclock displays on my localmachine. If I run the command "echo $DISPLAY" on newmachine, I see:

Also, I have checked and xauth is installed on newmachine. What setting I have to change on Ubuntu 10.04 to allow remote display of Xwindows programs?

Software :: Set Xterm Title To Gnu Screen Session Name?

May 5, 2009

I usually have several xterms open, with each one running a different gnu screen session. It would be useful if--at a glance--I could see the session name in the xterm title bar. That way I would be able to quickly tell which screen sessions are running in which xterms. This would be very useful when alt-tabbing.

I know that there are termcap, terminfo, and termcapinfo commands available, but I don't know how to use these. I also know that there's an $STY environment variable that stores the session name. Also, I do not want to lose my current "hardstatus alwayslastline" bar. It seems like this should be independent from the xterm title, anyways.

General :: Interactive Ssh Session Through Gateway Machine

Sep 6, 2010

Possible Duplicate:Forward SSH traffic through a middle machine.I am looking to get an interactive ssh session on a remote machine, but must login via a gateway.For example, right now I do the following:

@local % ssh <user>@<gateway>
@gateway % ssh <user>@<remote>

Is it possible to achieve the same thing in a single command from my local machine? I have tried:

@local % ssh <user>@<gateway> 'ssh <user>@<remote>`

From the output i am indeed able to login, but do not get an interactive session. I took inspiration for this attempt from using ssh to run a command remotely.

General :: Ubuntu - Wmctrl Cannot Open Display When Session Initiated Via Ssh+screen

Sep 20, 2010

I'm using wmctrl on an Ubuntu machine to manage windows from a script, that I run inside a (gnu) screen.

If I start the screen session from the local machine, wmctrl works fine, including if I completely close the terminal window and issue the wmctrl commands when connecting to the screen remotely via ssh.
Conversely, if I connect remotely with ssh and start a screen, wmctrl doesn't work (returns "Cannot open display") even if I attach that screen session locally from the Ubuntu Terminal.

I guess there is some hidden screen parameter that doesn't get set in a way that allows accessing the display when it's launched remotely -- any ideas what it is and how to modify it from within a remote ssh-screen session so that that the script can access the windows?

Ubuntu :: Force The Title Of A Window To Display On The Right Side

Jan 24, 2011

I have been messing about with my themes lately and was wondering if it was possible to force the title of a window to display on the right side and have the buttons on the right. I'm already aware of using gconf-edit to change the order and position of the buttons but I can't seem to figure out how to move the title.

Ubuntu :: Display Title Of Running Program When Using Gnome-terminal?

Feb 12, 2011

Usually I open 5 terminals. And since each of those 5 terminals prints it's tile as: "username@username-laptop: ~" It becomes very hard to see what is what. So, I would like my terminal to always change it's title automatically to the program that I am currently using.
So, if I type "irssi", the title of my gnome-terminal-window, should change to: "irssi" for example.

General :: Cannot Remote Display To (ubuntu 9.04) Box?

Mar 12, 2010

I am struggling to figure out why I cannot display GUI applications from one of the Sun Solaris 10 servers (named espresso) on the network over to my local Linux workstation (beluga). Seems to work perfectly fine when I use my other Solaris 8 (stoli) box for display.Here is what I do, the part that works fine:

stoli: xhost+
stoli: rlogin espresso
espresso: setenv DISPLAY stoli:0.0
espresso: oclock

Now trying the same thing over to linux box, beluga, and it fails with message "Error: Can't open display: beluga:0.0":

beluga: xhost+
beluga: rlogin espresso
espresso: setenv DISPLAY beluga:0.0

General :: Ssh - Remote Desktop Into A Machine?

Mar 19, 2010

I have a VPS by my host running on a linux server, and they have given me SSH access. Is it possible to remote desktop into the server, like you can on Windows, so that I can physcially click on things rather than having to use SSH commands?

Surely this must be running on Fedora or Ubuntu etc. so there is some type of OS. You would probably have to install something on the servers end I suppose but just want to know if its possible and what the options are.

General :: Can't Ssh Remote To Fedora 14 Machine?

Feb 28, 2011

I have looked for clues in the sshd.conf etc. But I can't really find anything that give me a hint of why fedora 14 keeps blocking my access.I get all the way into the ssh interface.

login as: xxxxx
xxxxx@xx.xx.85.216's password:
Access denied
xxxxx@xx.xx.85.216's password:
Access denied
xxxxx@xx.xx.85.216's password:

So it's not a firewall problem and the port forwarding is working fine. I am using putty to access the machine remote.Anyone have any ideas of what I need to set in ssh or sshd.conf. I am expecting to login with password not with keys.

Ubuntu :: Window Title Bar Requires Metacity - Replace To Display After Logon

May 27, 2010

Running 10.04 64-bit. After logging on, the title bars around all the windows are missing. Adding "metacity --replace" as a startup command resolves the problem, but something's obviously wrong.

Doesn't occur on my other computer, so probably hardware related.

Slackware :: Display The Full $PROMPT_COMMAND Environment Variable In The Konsole Title Bar?

Mar 18, 2011

IN 3.5.10 I am able to display the full $PROMPT_COMMAND environment variable in the Konsole title bar. Kind of handy and I did not need to display that information in the $PROMPT variable.

In 4.5.5 I am having trouble figuring out how to make that work correctly. The title bar displays only the directory name rather than the full path and user name.


history -a;echo -ne "33]0;${USER}@`uname -n`: ${PWD}07"

All I see in the title bar is:

dirname: bash

I should see:

username@hostname: full path to present working directory
