Is possible (by root of course) to run a command from console, that will be executed on X-session owned by another user on the same linux box/machine ? Example: Can root open xclock for another local user logged into X11 ?
I Have Configure Samba server in Centos, I need give permission like for some user(5User) can able to read and write the particular folder, and again i need give some another user(6user) can only read permission for same folder.
I'm trying to start bash with a command and have it interactive like this:bash -i -c "echo Welcome!"As in, execute the command and allow me to use it as an interactive shell afterwards. (I'm doing something more complicated than echoing, but this doesn't work.)I've tried this from a running gnome-terminal, from one gnome-terminal to a new one withgnome-terminal and from the Alt+F2 program launcher (with "Run in terminal" ticked).
I have a program(that is written by me) which need super user permission to execute it. But I need to let the normal users to execute it without using 'sudo ./executable' and just './executable'. how i can set the program to execute by the normal users without using 'sudo' or password prompting.
I've looked everywhere but I can't find where to change the default box for incoming mail, or am I on the wrong track. It's a nuisance having to change folders and I can't configure wastebin to empty on exit.And I can't get kmail to import from evolution. Do I have to go to the evolution storage and do it manually, and if so, how do I do that?
Any pointers to make a shell script in cronjob or using at to be user interactive. We have a requirement to script a program where it prompts the users in CUI for feedback and capture the output in a text file and act based on the feedback.For eg: At pre-defined time i should prompt the acitve users whether it is ok to shutdown, whose feedback would be captured in a text file. Post which act on the updates in the text file

I want to have a script (tcsh/bash/python) that launches a bunch of gnome-terminals (or 1 with multiple tabs). And I want it to execute a command, but keep the shell interactive. Currently, if you type gnome-terminal then it launches a new interactive shell, but if you give it the execute flag, then it executes the command and quits (or stays open, but non-interactive depending on the users gnome-terminal settings).
I have this command which I want to run automatically before I start working. What the command does is dynamic and different for each shell. It takes arguments. So it's not something I can take care of in a .cshrc type file.
I want to write a function that shall execute periodic. means if i set time 1 sec that function should execute in each 1 sec. let us call that function func1. But i dnt want to wait inside the func1 for that 1 sec. Meanwhile i want to run another function say func2 in background . some thing like less priority function. Whnever the time come to execute the periodic function func1 it has to go to func1 and then again in the waiting time , the second function func2 will resume. I wanted to know how to do it.. Can somebody tell me is it possible using signal in linux.
I am not at all convinced by the idea of giving permissions to read,write and execute as these Learning Management Systems say. Let me know what you people have to say? What is the best practise in such situations? I have to get all these LMS run on same web server.
i am working on this thread: [URL] if it is better to open a file every time i need to write to it or should i keep a file open the whole time and when i am done with the script, close it and sendmail it out?
Or i just thought of this: i could keep concatenating to a string and just sendmail when done.
I adjusted some settings in the desktop settings folder in KDE. I had only one user account on the machine. Next time I rebooted I could not log into KDE (it kept bombing out). I had to log into the console. Finally I managed to create a new account with useradd but this user cannot sudo
My problem is that my home directory is encrypted, so I need a new user with sudo privileges to delete all the kde files and folders in my original users home directory so that I can start with a new KDE setup (which won�t be a bad thing since I tinkered a lot).
How can I add sudo privileges to the new account (I presume I can do it by logging in with my sudo account in a terminal login?
I'm writing a perl script to remove a test database and part of that is of course getting rid of all files. So I wrote this to do the job:
This always results in an "Could not open /u00/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/rdbms/dbs for reading: No such file or directory" (that directory is the one ending with the $spfile_dir variable) message, although that directory exists and the executing user has writing rights on it.
The same behaviour if I create the directory array like this:
The problem does not occur when one of the directories is the only element in the array though. Of course I could copy and paste that part of the script for the second directory, but I don't like that workaround.
$cmd If this script is executed, an error is generated. The reason written was that "The execution fails because the pipe is not expanded and is passed to date as an argument".What is meant by expansion of pipe. When we execute date | wc on the command line, it goes fine.then | is not treated as an argument. Why?
I have been tearing my hair out with this. As part of a backend perl script i am holding the Epoch time as session data using apache session and mysql so i can delete sessions after an expiry period. When I retrieve the time it is about three months old even when i only just set it. The code example below best describes the problem:
I have a question that i want to make a normal user to execute the commands which the root user is able to execute, say if i have a user named siru and when i logged in using siru i cannot run commands like tracert,nmap@loccalhost and all but i can run when i have logged into root account so my question is how to make siru to run the command tracert,nmap@localhost.I have even edited the .bash_profile of siru's home directory from
# .bash_profile # Get the aliases and functions if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
I am currently in a project to set up an LTSP server with 10 thin clients. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic).
Installing server and booting clients are working fine. Now, according to the need, I have to restrict user session numbers and allow resuming previous user session.
I have achieved to do the first one, but still could not able to setup the second one. As per requirement, if some thin can have power failure, the same session should be restored back. I am confused here, if I need to focus on saving xsessions or saving gnome sessions. I am looking for a concrete solution as I am running out of time.
