Debian Installation :: No Network-Manager - Pull Up The Terminal And Enter A Command To Start?

Sep 1, 2011

I downloaded Debian Stable last night, and everything appear to go smoothly. Today, I booted up the new OS to try it out for the first time. As I was exploring a few of the features, I decided to pull up a web browser. No internet connection.

No big deal, I thought, as I searched around for a way to connect wirelessly. I couldn't find a way to do so. I consulted one of my more Linux savvy friends, who advised me to pull up the terminal and enter a command to start the network-manager. According to the terminal, no such file currently exists on my system.

This is a bit of a conundrum for me, since I am on my university campus with no ethernet cord to attempt a direct connection. Is there any way to get the network-manager onto my computer? Also, did I mess up somewhere in the installation, or did someone not package the file with CD1 for some unknown reason?

Fedora Networking :: Cannot Start GNS3 Gnome-terminal In F13

Nov 18, 2010

I've tried to access the console in vain. Every time I try to, I get this message


Cannot start gnome-terminal -t R1 -e 'telnet 2000' > /dev/nul/2>&1 &:No such file or directory

Then i decided to use the xterm client instead. But still didn't work


Cannot start xterm -T R1 -e 'telnet 2000' >/dev/null 2>&1 &: No such file or directory

The last option I had was using Kconsole (linux kde) but still it doesn't work. And i get the same error message


Cannot start /usr/lib/kde4/bin/konsole --new-tab -p tabtitle=R1 -e telnet 2000 >/dev/null 2>&1 &: No such file or directory

Fedora :: Schedule A Process To Start At A Specific Time (not On Start Up)?

Jan 19, 2010

I'm trying to find how to schedule a process to start at a specific time (not on start up). How would I schedule a process/application to start at a specific time (if it matters, it will be a background process). For instance, have process abc start every weekday at 5am. I've done this for windows many times though have only been using linux regularly for a few months and haven't figured out the best way of doing this.

So far the best solution I have is to create a program that will start on boot and have it check the time and sleep until the required time and then start the required process(es) at the required time(s). But this seems more of a hack since I'd expect there to be a proper way of doing this.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Find The Right Command To Start Another XServer?

Jun 30, 2010

I tried my best on searching for the answer to this question. I couldn't find the right command to start another XServer. Maybe I just don't know how to look for it, or I'm using the wrong keywords. Anyway, what I want to happen is hit CTRL+ALT+F6 (F7 to return to my desktop) and start another XServer to run a full screen game. How do i do that? Is it possible to have multiple instances of X?

By the way, the error says that an instance of x server is already running on display 0 after I have issued this command: Code: startx In case you're wondering why this is my solution, it's because scripting is not my type for automatically making an xserver when I click a game, especially if you'd have to do it for all other games :/ So, let's stick to my idea D unless it's impossible, of course. EDIT: I was able to get a new xserver with xterm in it, but it seems there is no acceleration or some sort >.< OpenLieroX runs at a frame rate of 15 fps or so. Anyone have an idea on how to enable acceleration on openbox?

Debian :: How To Start X Session In New Terminal

Apr 20, 2015

System: Debian 7 Wheezy amd64 - Gnome classic - gdm3

I'm trying to create a new gdm session in tty8, so I can switch between tty7 and tty8 running simultaneously.

How can I accomplish this? I found some website suggesting to run startx and also startx gnome-session -- :1 vt8 Both result in a black screen, blocking the overall system, not allowing me to go to tty1 nor any tty. I have to run REINSUB to restart the system.

# I don't know if tty is the exact term to refer to the CTRL+ALT+Fx virtual terminals.

Debian :: Cannot Start Root Terminal

Apr 13, 2016

After reboot I can start it, no problem here. But if I close root terminal and trying to open it again - it won't open.

If to open it from user terminal, it gives me:

Code: Select allgksu /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator
Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process org.gnome.Terminal exited with status 1

The only thing comes to my mind is that right after installation I opened root terminal and:

- kept a tick on "remember password"
- put a tick on "save in the keyring".

I guess the last tick is the problem. I installed debian 8.4 in virtualbox and specifically kept the tick where it should be and I can start root terminal many times w/o any problem. How I can fix that?

I do realize that I can get root privileges in terminal. I guess it's more about convenience.

I tried to google it, but no luck. Just to name few:

[URL] .......

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Terminal At Kde Start?

Apr 26, 2011

I installed gnome 3.0 through the one installer, and now every time I start kde I get a gnome terminal that says

** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowState' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'
** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowActions' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'
** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowMoveResizeMask' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'

It keeps shrinking everytime I try to expand it a bit, I had to edit > select all and copy to be able to read it. And it sounds like it's trying to play a sound that sounds like welcome, but it gets cut off, it also makes a sound when closing it. I'm assuming this was supposed to be a first time run thing for gnome but it keeps showing up in kde.

Ubuntu :: Get A Terminal To Appear At The Start Up To Ask For The Password

Mar 31, 2010

I've copied a little shell script from the net and when I run it in xfce4-terminal it just works


sudo ./

The problem is that this script needs interaction with the user (entering a password) and I want to run it at the startup. I've put it in the /etc/init.d folder, configured the options but I need to know how you can get a terminal to appear at the start up to ask you for the password.


echo "1. Enter your password

Ubuntu :: Start An Application In Terminal?

Apr 29, 2010

I have a binary application that runs only in shell, now I want to open it from another application(Mathematica program) but simply invoking it will start it in memory but not in a shell.

I tryed "bash app" which does not work and "gnome-terminal app" just opens the terminal without launching that application.

Ps: Its the same thing as in Java when you want to invoke a system command like
ping but you need to do it like this .exec("cmd ping") instead of just ping.
