General :: Skype Auto Closing - Froze / Crash?

May 26, 2011

Any time i try to open skype it closes out fully in 5 seconds (not even in the processes anymore). I don't know why or how OR how to make it stop being so mean to me! i'm running ubuntu 10.4 32bit . I tried to boot it in safe mode and umm.. it froze? or crashed? well it was on the black screen with the blinking dot for like 20 mins before i gave up on it (Hiting enter or esc or anything didn't work). There was a key symbol on my panel before skype acted up(It closed and disabled something.. i've never seen it before). Adobe also crashed, and linux did a small update (nothing with skype).

Apr 22, 2011

I code primarily in jQuery/JavaScript, and I'm looking for a text editor for Linux that has auto-indent and auto-outdent (seems to be tough to find that). Any suggestions? I've checked Gedit, Cream, vim, Bluefish.None of them seem to have this feature.

Ubuntu :: Prevent Application In Terminal From Auto Closing

Jan 15, 2011

I've made custom launchers for programs that can only run in terminal. They open fine within the Terminal window, but it closes right after the program is finished, before I can read the report.

Is there a way to keep the Terminal window open, using launchers? I don't want to manually type the commands after opening a Terminal.

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:
scp someprogram
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.

Software :: Bash Auto Clearing Screen When Closing Application?

Mar 8, 2010

I've wondered for years how it works and how I can change it. For example, opening a document with vim, or opening a man page, and then exiting out of it will sometimes (depending on the distro) clear the screen and leave your prompt at the very top. other times, it leaves the contents of whatever you had open on-screen and your prompt is at the bottom.

General :: Windows - Text / Log Editor With Auto-refresh Support

Feb 8, 2010

I'm looking for a text editor / log manager of some kind that will automatically refresh a file's contents when it changes.

I have a single target log file (e.g. current.log) that is overwritten under certain circumstances and I'd like to be able to leave it displayed and not constantly have to re-open the file to get updates. Much the same as 'tail --follow=name' does in Linux.

I'm using a Windows desktop but it's a remote file so a Linux app would work just as easily.

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

Ubuntu Security :: Ecryptfs Doesn't Auto-decrypt With Auto-login

Jan 6, 2011

I recently installed 32bit maverick and wanted to make it login automatically. I tried enabling auto login from Admin > Login but that didnt work and I was still prompted for my password. Then I went to Users & Groups and changed the password option to Do Not ask for password at login now after I reboot, the user list is shown (only 1 user) and it doesnt ask for password after I click on my username.

However, then it gives a few errors (as i vaguely recall):

1. cannot load .ICE directory in my home directory
2. some error 256 about a gconf-sanity-2 file
3. nautilus cannot load my home directory etc

and then it gets stuck without loading anything (blank wallpaper). i ve tried navigating to my home directory using Alt F2, gksudo nautilus and my home dir contents are encrypted by the ecryptfs (there is a readme.txt file and a shortcut). i have tried to decrypt but it doesnt work... i ve also tried to start/stop gdm, and startx but nothing works. if i stop gdm, then the prompt doesnt recognize my password and keeps on rejecting the commands i enter... I think this has something to do with the home dir not being decrypted due to the dont ask for paswd option... how can i disable the dont ask for pwd without the gui (i can access my / by booting through an external usb).

Networking :: Ethernet Auto-connect / Auto-sense Doesn't Work

Feb 3, 2011

I have noticed that a common issue to several distros is the fact that the networking subsystem doesn't automatically detect the link if an ethernet connection is disconnected and then re-connected to the NIC after boot. If the ethernet cable is connected after the system is up and running, nothing happens - ethtool eth0 shows link detected: no, and you have to restart the network service to let the NIC know that there is in fact a link, and actually connect. I have a Fedora14 (KDE) box with a brand new Asus motherboard with embedded NIC. Everything works great except the auto-detect of a freshly connected ethernet connection if the link is down to begin with.

Am I missing a ethernet link sentinel utility or something, or is this just the way linux works? I have done plenty of research on plenty of posts, and it seems this is a common problem, with no solution other than manually or programatically restarting the network service in a script to detect the link after a disconnect.

Debian Configuration :: Auto-login And Auto-connect To Networks

Jun 3, 2010

I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:

1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work.
2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.

And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?

Ubuntu :: Auto Run (auto Exec) A Script On Mounting A Device?

Mar 16, 2010

I would like to exec a script whenever a user mount a device. The device could be an internal device (for example a partition on a second hard disk) or a removable one (for example a usb hard disk). The script must have sudo capabilities even if the user is not included in the admin group. Is it possible?

The specific question:
I would like to add acl option to a device whenever it is mounted.
I tried fstab but it's changing the behaviour of nautilus see:

[URL]... so I would like to create a script with the command

sudo mount -o remount,acl /media/data
and auto execute it any time data is mounted.

CentOS 5 :: Software RAID Auto Sensing Auto Rebuild Possible?

Jul 23, 2010

I recently installed a server with Software RAID. I tested by powering it down, unplugging one drive and powering it up. Magically, it worked!I found out later that I have to manually add individual devices like md1 to sda2 md2 to sda4. I got all of them added and rebuilt but my question is: Is there a way to make it so that if I "removed" a drive and put it back, the system will senses the new drive and rebuilds based on some internal table?

How to make my GNOME desktop auto recognize the NTFS partition of the USB drive.

On command line I can do the following perfectly:

All files permission on the drive is 777. I can read, I can write, do whatever I want.

But in GNOME Desktop environment, when the USB drive is plugged-in, the partition is auto-mounted with other options:


All files permission on the drive is now 555. I can't write to it anymore. I saw a post earlier having similar mount result, but this one is USB drive though.

So how to configure GDE mount automatically with my intended mount options?

Fedora :: GNU Auto Series Will Not Generate Make Script?

I was tried to compile the brl-cad for my IA32 machine. I install all the GNU auto series (autoconf, automake, libtool). Then I run sh asnstructed by the installation guide. But after the preparation finish, I check my directory. The make script does not exist. And everything broke down here. When I tried to run "make", I got this feed back: make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.(of course, there is no make file)I had run every step by using root account. Hence, there should not be any restriction on operation.

Ubuntu :: How To Make Command Line Auto Run On Boot Up

Dec 20, 2010

In dealing with the Nvidia Powermizer, I have to set it to "Prefer Maximum Power" mode from adaptive mode in order that I can avoid laggy in using my GUI. However, it doesn't save this setting so I have to manually tweak it everytime........

Someone on the web taught me to use the following command line:
nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1
running it in the terminal it will set to the mode I want.

Would I be able to make my computer run the above command in terminal everytime it starts? I tried to put the command in the start up applications and it seems not working.

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount Not Working - How To Make It Work

Jan 26, 2011

I've installed Lubuntu on a Packard Bell EasyNote W3344 D. lsusb displays the usb pen, however it's not automounted. All three options under pcmanfm --> Preferences -- Volume Managment is ticked. I've tried two different usb pens, both formatted fat32 and confirmed working on ordinary Ubuntu. I should add that I previously installed Mint Fluxbox, but eventually reinstalled (choosing Lubuntu) because I wasn't able to enable auto mount of usb pen. Both /mnt and /media remains empty after insertion of the usb pen. Auto mount of optical drive is working properly.

Fedora :: Eclipse Auto-Created Makefile Crashes Make

Dec 11, 2009

I'm just learning to use Eclipse (have previously been a vim+make developer). I created the standard Hello World project following the tutorial. The program compiles fine, but if I build it again without cleaning the project, make aborts with a glibc double free message (pasted below). The same thing happens if I run make in the Debug directory outside eclipse. I don't know make well enough to figure out what the problem is, and to my mind Eclipse shouldn't be generating a buggy makefile anyway.

I've attached a tarfile of the project directory. Download the file and the following sequence of commands should show you the problem:
tar xvzf HelloWorld.tar.gz && cd HelloWorld/Debug && make && make
Also, if you think it would be worthwhile submitting a bugreport to the Fedora Eclipse dev team, let me know where I can do that and I'll be happy to.
