Fedora :: Add / Remove Startup Items?

Nov 28, 2010

Okay, two packages in question here: sshd and xrdp.

In the /etc/rc.d/rc5.d directory there is a K??sshd link, I'm not really sure why the default is to kill sshd in graphical mode, but it's there. I saw it coincidentally when I went to add an S??xrdp link so that I could have xrdp run when the computer starts. I restarted the computer, and of course, couldn't connect via my Windows Remote Desktop client. A quick ps -e | grep xrdp in a terminal window showed me that xrdp had not, in fact, started.

I hop back in to ??/rc5.d to see if I messed up creating my link and poof. there's no more S??xrdp link, furthermore, the K??sshd link that I had removed was back.

Okay, so Fedora doesn't like you messing with the init links manually... I can dig it, cause there's this nifty gui tool to manage startup items... I go in to that and add entries for sshd and xrdp, calling them via their init scripts so I can make sure everything plays nicely... then restart.

Oh, wait, still no xrdp or sshd running.

If I manually start these servers using their init scripts from a terminal they run fine, no issues, but I don't want to do that, and I think we can all agree that I should't have to. What am I doing wrong? What is the 'proper' way to add servers to the startup process and since entering runlevel 5 apparently kills sshd, how do I prevent that?

Fedora :: Remove Jexec From Startup From A Live CD?

I recently installed Fedora 14 and things were going fine. Until I installed Java SDK (or is it JDK). When I rebooted immediatedly after installing, startup is hanging up on starting; jexec services.

Slackware :: Intel Graphics / Vertical Lines From Xpdf/gv Under Xterm Stick To Xterm Window Making It Unreadable?

Jun 13, 2011

Start xpdf or gv. Click an xterm to be active and slide it over xpdf/gv. Vertical lines from xpdf/gv under the xterm stick to the xterm window above and make it unreadable.

The problem does NOT show with KDE default settings with display effects on but does show in fvwm, xfce etc, and in KDE without effects.

On a system with a Sandy Bridge integrated graphics (i5-2400) the problem went away by downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.13.0. But it was not enough for another system with 945G which needed downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.12.0.

Ubuntu :: Remove A Random App From Startup?

Feb 11, 2010

Karmic - When I start up and log in, a window for KDE Desktop Sharing Invitation automatically pops up.

Closing it doesn't prevent it from popping up on next startup.

There doesn't appear to be any option to "Don't show on startup."

When I go to System -> System Settings -> Advanced -> Autostart, it does not appear under Desktop File. The only thing that appears under "Script File" is gtk2engines... which does not appear to be the issue.

I'm guessing there's a shell command that will give me a more in-depth look at what should and should not run upon startup? Would really like to startup with a clean screen!

Ubuntu :: Remove Mysql From Startup?

May 22, 2010

I have installed mysql server on my Ubuntu Lucid AMD64 desktop. I need to run this service only on need. So I prefer not to have this in startup. So I did the following -

1. Deactivated the row entry by name "mysql" from application BootUp-Manager.

2. Run the application sysv-rc-conf and unchecked the checkboxes for all run levels.

3. Run the command "sudo update-rc.d -f mysql remove". Execution completed successfully.

4. Run the command - "sudo service mysql stop". In return I got a message "mysql stop/waiting".

5. Restarted the desktop.

Now when I read through the task manager, I still see a process by name "mysqld" running. I ran the command as mentioned in # 4 above and got the same response. I wanted to know how do I turn off mysql service running from startup permanently. But I still need to run it as and when required.

Ubuntu :: Remove Application From The Startup

Jan 13, 2011

I am running Unbuntu 10.10 on a HTPC, and also XBMC. With some effort it worked ok, sounds, remote etc. Via systems>preferences I managed to add XBMC to the startup. It now starts when I start the PC. However it sort-of hijacks the PC, so the WiFi does not start among other things. Also I am no longer able to log into the desktop, so I am not able to emove XBMC from the start-up of the computer. If I exit XBMC I get to the log-in screen for the desktop, but when I log in it starts XBMC directly.

How can I remove it via the terminal? I cannot find a .config directory, any autostart, any .xsession, .xinitrc or anything else that looks like startup-script. How can I get access to my desktop again?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Add/remove Startup Programs

Jan 21, 2010

I'm unable to change startup programs. If I try and add or remove a program, any changes I have made seem to undo themselves. I suspect it might have something to do with being unable to save the session, but I really don't have a clue.

Just in case it makes a difference: I'm actually running Mint (Helena).

Ubuntu :: Remove Transmission Daemon From Startup

Apr 1, 2011

I've tried the following in rc.local but it gets me nowhere:

for((a=0;a<=5;a++)); do
sleep 1 &
[[ $(top -n1 | grep transmission) == *transmission* ]] &&
[[ $(date +%H) -ge 5 ]] && [[ $(date +%H) -lt 23 ]] && /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop done

[[ $(top -n1 | grep transmission) == *transmission* ]] &&
[[ $(date +%H) -ge 5 ]] && [[ $(date +%H) -lt 23 ]] && /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop

Nothing I do can keep this thing from launching, and apparently kill it either.

Fedora :: No Sound With Xterm

Apr 28, 2011

I have a normal computer installed (F14, 32 bits) with a sound card correctly installed. In a normal configuration into runlevel 5, I can play sound and the sound card is visible from the gnome-volume-control window.
I should modify the computer running a naked X server (without window manager and other stuff) and two applications (an xterm and a special application managing sounds). The last application is a text based application and could run on a text console. I have the X server running because I display picture sent from another computer. Currently the computer boots on runlevel 3 and logs in automatically. If I start manually my special application, it runs fine. I create a .xinitrc script with the xterm command and I change the .bashrc calling xinit. Each application runs well independently. My problem is when I try running my special sound application from the xterm window. I have no sound. If a run the gnome-volume-control command, the program shows that no sound card is available.

I suppose the X server removes the original sound configuration of the text mode during its initialization and could not initialize correctly after that the sound card.

how it is possible to initialize the sound card manually into the X server? Do I need running some gnome command before I can call my application?

Ubuntu :: Remove Annoying Drum Sound At Startup?

Jul 6, 2010

How do I remove that annoying drum sound from the login screen.I went to PREFERENCES -> LOGIN SCREEN, but there are no tabs or boxes for sound. Only options to determine who I want to log in.I tried GCONF-EDITOR, and drilled down to /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/settings-manager-plugins/sound/active and unchecked the active box, rebooted, but it still plays that stupid sound. And the box is unchecked if I check it! I've tried the solutions in the forum and nothing seems to kill that annoying sound.I'm still on 9.10 right now, since 10.04 has a nasty screen flicker problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sshd -D At Startup - How To Remove The -D Option

May 19, 2011

Somehow the -D option got tacked on to my sshd when I start up. How do I remove the -D option when sshd is started at boot? I'm guessing I need to edit something in /etc/init.d but not sure what. I checked System->Preferences->Startup Applications and the ssh server daemon isn't listed there. And since it is a command line option /etc/ssh/sshd_config is of no help.

Fedora :: Unable To Set Title On Xterm?

Dec 30, 2009

The usual operations in starting the xterm app don't seem to apply in Fedora 12. I usually prefer to put my own title and other attributes when starting an xterm. But the operation: xterm -T 'Some Title' does not do anything. Instead, the current directory is always displayed in the title bar of the window (on kde). Where is the resource file to disable this default behavior?

Ubuntu :: KDM And GDM Battle At Startup - Both Launch X Servers - Remove Duplication?

Apr 28, 2010

I have both ubuntu and kde-desktop installed, and after trying KDM, switched back to GDM which worked fine for a while (although KDE changed my other gnome settings like usplash and cursors which took a while to change back). A day later, though, when I start up my system, the screen flickers a few times then shows me a message that an x-server is already running, so hit no to try loading it on '0' again or yes to try another number.

If I hit no, it will briefly show me the KDE login screen refresh a few times and go back to the menu. If I hit yes, it refreshes about 7 times and finally shows the gnome login screen. This process takes a long time and I'm not sure is great for my screen.
