General :: Make Screen's Statusbar Show The Windows Without The - And $ Characters?

Dec 30, 2010

I have the following in my .screenrc file

hardstatus string '%{= kw}[%{r} %d/%m/%Y %C %A %{w}] [%= %{= kw}%-Lw%{= kW}%{r}%n:%t%?%?%{= kw}%?%+Lw%?%?%= ] [ %{r}%l%{w} ]%{w}%{w}'

and the statusbar shows up as

[ 30/12/2010 8:24 PM ] [ 0$ bash 1-$ bash 2:bash ] [ 0.00 0.03 0.04 ]

I want it like this instead:

[ 30/12/2010 8:24 PM ] [ 0:bash 1:bash 2:bash ] [ 0.00 0.03 0.04 ]

General :: Rsync On Windows To Make It Keep Special Characters In File-names

Sep 2, 2010

We're in the process of implementing an offsite backup of all our servers to a remote Linux server. We're using rsync over ssh.What I've found is that characters such as ±, ¶,´ and £ are replaced on the Linux server with underscores.I don't mind if it changes these characters in the filenames of documents, but when it renames a language pack from Espa±ol.clx to Espa_ol.clx, it could cause issues for us further down the line.

What do I need to do differently to make the special characters copy over correctly? For the initial sync which will take place locally, before the machine is moved offsite, I have SAMBA enabled. I am able to copy files from Windows to the Samba share, retaining the original filename, though it looks different in the Linux directory listing, i.e. têst becomes ƒªstThese files get deleted by rsync when it runs, as it does not match the filenames.

Software :: Terminal And Konsole Windows Show Strange Characters

Oct 1, 2009

When I open a terminal or konsole window, output (either STDOUT or STDERR) sometimes contains funny characters instead of something meaningful. Can someone explain how I might correct this situation?

ANALYSIS:
One very repeatable example involves using the manual page command

Code:
man set... man page output ...upstart - event-based init daemon

In my copy of the output, there are several problems in the very first screen. In the synopsis section, there is "{ value | ?value? ..." Replace the '?' with a lower-case-a-under-a-carat character (a-hat).
I suspect the garble character might be apostrophe in real life.

In other places, I see var?/able or how?/ever or trans?/action where the '?' is again a-hat and the '/' represents end of line or newline. I suspect the garble character might be a hyphen in real life.

All of this suggests that there is a conflict between the character stream written to STDOUT by the man command and the character-display settings (is that "code page" or similar?) of the specific terminal or konsole in use.

In specific, I use konsole v1.6.6 from KDE v3.5.10. In general, I'm running Ubuntu Hardy (v8.04.3 LTS).

General :: Make Windows 7 Network Show Samba Share After VM Is Rebooted/restored?

Jan 18, 2010

On Windows 7, I have VirtualBox running Linux (Ubuntu 8.04), with Samba set up so that the Windows host can access it. But if the virtual machine is shut down & restored, or rebooted, the Windows Network no longer shows it. I've tried refreshing many times, restarting Samba, disabling/enabling the virtual network adapter, and running the succession of commands ipconfig /release, ipconfig /flushdns, & ipconfig /renew, but none worked. As a last resort I could restart the host itself, but is there a better way?

General :: Gnome - Configure The Definition Of "full Screen" To Make Large VNC Windows Behave Nicely On A Dual Screen Setup?

Dec 15, 2010

In my corporate environment, I'm required to run a Windows machine that acquires a VNC session on a machine in the server farm. My windows machine is dual head with different resolution monitors ( 1600x1080 on left and 1920x1200 on right). If I create a VNC session that spans the monitors, then maximizing a window in the VNC session causes it to stretch across both my monitors.

Instead, I want a "maximize" event to behave like it does on my windows machine -- I only want to maximize to the display that the window is on.

How can I define what, what I'll call, "maximize regions"? Regions in the VNC graphical plane where when I click "maximize", the window only expands to the region it currently ( and mostly) resides in.

Can I do this in gnome, X, xrandr, or some other magical interface?

General :: Dzen2 Toolbar / Statusbar Script (Simplified)

Oct 8, 2010

I have simplified (i.e., got rid of the stuff I don't want) dzen2 script:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# Dzen2 toolbar/statusbar execution file.
# Options:
# -xs = which Xinerama screen
# -l = number of lines in slave (dropdown) window
# -u update continually
# -p <n> timed termination; w/o n seconds, persist forever.
# retval: 0 = EOF; 1 = error; or exit:n where n=user-defined retval.
# -e event... -e 'event1=action1:option1:...option<n>,...,action<m>;...;event<l>'
# event... -e 'button1=exec:xterm:firefox;entertitle=uncollapse,unhide;button3=exit'
# Supported events: (see latest README or online docs) .....

There are just 2 little problems that I can't solve.
1. It's not exactly at the top of the screen.
2. As you can see in the attachment, the text in time/date/memory/disk_usage is not vertically centered.

General :: Removing The Escape Characters From GNU Screen's Screenlog.%n?

Is it possible to remove the ESC sequences in GNU Screen's output file? Things such as colours, tabs and other escape characters make their way into the log files and become difficult to decipher.

I've tried Dr. Google & Co. as well as reading the manual, but haven't been able to find anything suitable.Perhaps I've overlooked something?

OpenSUSE :: Weird Characters And Missing Texts - Don't Show Any Text At All But Squares Instead

May 22, 2011

I am using a VRS for ftp operations. I have bought it with OpenSuSe 11.3 installed without any Control Panel installed. I have used NX and installed IceWM as windows manager. It works really great. Then system wanted me to upgrade. I did so. After upgrade to 11.4, my programs screwed up. They don't show any text at all but squares instead. I have tried everything i know to fix this but i could not manage to repair it.

My VRS has 512mb RAM , OpenSuse 11.4 (32-Bit) and has no control panel. I use yast through SSH Telnet client (Putty).

General :: Does Non-printing Characters Escape Characters Still Needed For PS1 Definition?

Aug 28, 2011

While modifying the definition of my PS1, I saw that "[" and "]" markers should be added to help bash to compute the right display lenght. Many exemples on the web do not use them or even mention them.I searched for a solution to add them automatically, like with sed, but I didn't find any example.Are they still needed and is there a recommandation not to use sed to define PS1?

General :: Bash - Using Find Or Grep To Locate Filenames With Accented Characters From A Different Encoding System (Windows)

Dec 6, 2010

I tried to tag late onto a question similar to mine on stackoverflow (Find Non-UTF8 Filenames on Linux File System) to elicit further replies, with no luck so far, so here goes again... I have the same problem as the OP in the link above and convmv is a great tool to fix one's own filesystem. My question is therefore academic, but I find it unsatisfactory (in fact I can't believe) that 'find' is not able to find non standard ascii characters.

Is there anyone out there that would know what combination of options to use to find filenames that contain non standard characters on what seems to be a unicode FS, in my case the characters seem to be 8bits extended ascii rather than unicode, the files come from a Windows machine (iso-8859-1) and I regularly need to fetch them. I'd love to see how find and/or grep can do the same as convmv.

General :: Bootloader Does Not Show Up Blank Screen?

Mar 17, 2011

My laptop screen goes blank right after the bios is loaded. Live CDs have no effect either.I installed arch linux to my whole HDD today. Last time I installed ubuntu linux to my whole HDD, the same problem happened.The way I fixed the problem last time was by formatting the HDD with an internal HDD dock and then installing windows with linux dual boot.As I do not want to go through the hassle by installing windows again, and I would be very delighted if anyone had an alternate way. I really want my laptop to be windows free!It seems to me that my laptop is somehow constructed to crash / go blank if no windows partition / boot loader is detected. I have no idea why they would do that, maybe you have a better explanation?

Ubuntu :: Make The Pc Start On Windows Auto, Without Prompting By Showing The Choose System Screen?

Mar 24, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu in my PC, without uninstalling windows coz it`s not really mine, its my father`s. When he saw the boot (like a month later, he REALLY uses the PC...) he went crazy and instantly ordered me to "uninstall that thing". Of course i`m not stupid to do that after a month of seeing how Ubuntu is... I want to know if/how can I make the pc start on windows auto, without prompting by showing the choose system screen, and when i open boot menu (i don`t remember, but i think its F-eight) i have both choices, so I can keep Linux without him knowing.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager App Statusbar Icons?

Oct 14, 2010

Now it supports many of the commercial mobile broadband modems out of the box. Great job!I've just found out, that the nm-app statusbar icons are messed up.Only found this issue in mono-light and mono-dark icon themes in Ubuntu 10.10 -No difference between wifi and mobile broadband connection types. It would be great if it's fixed (checked the symlinks, they point to an emty transparent svg... Would be nice to include cell tower, and connection type icons in the future....)-Connecting always show wireless connecting animation. (IMHO the Gnome-Colors connecting dots were more self explaining)

Ubuntu :: Change Root Password - Typing A Password, No Characters Show Up?

Mar 9, 2010

I'm really new to Linux so this will probably sound like a pretty naive question to most users, but how do you change the root password?To install Java, I have to type # su into Terminal,which then asks for the password.What's weird is that when I start typing a password, no characters show up. I don't know if this is supposed to happen or not.I've found a bunch of different sites on the Internet that explain how to change the root password, but none of them seem to work for my specific work station.

I've got Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit. In the GRUB boot menu, I can choose to boot normal or in recovery mode (I'm led to believe older versions don't have this option).I've tried typing # sudo passwrd into Terminal, but I already have a root password set up apparently, so I can't change it there.
