SUSE :: Schedule Hibernate And Program Start?

Oct 17, 2010

I'm trying to make an old Dell Latitude D505 running OpenSuse 11.3 LXDE download torrents at night between 2 and 6 AM (when I have free bandwidth), but I'm failing at a couple very basic things. The solution is probably very simple, but I can't find it.First: How can I schedule Transmission to start every day at 2AM? I tried with Crontab (using VCron), but I think I'm using the wrong command. When I type "transmission" in a terminal it launches transmission, but when I make a crontab entry with "transmission", nothing happens. Do I need to type the full path to the transmission executable? If so, how can I find that? Or is the problem more likely to have something to do with permissions?Second: Is it possible to schedule hibernation? If so, what command should I use?

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.

Ubuntu :: Calendar / Planner And Schedule Program?

Jan 24, 2011

I was wondering if there was some calendar/planner/schedule program for Ubuntu so that I could input all my class HW/lecture/exam schedules for the semester and be able to keep track of whats due and whats going on? I know I could use Gmail's calendar, but I don't know if I will always have internet and I feel like a stand-alone program would be better.

OpenSUSE Install :: SUSE 11.3 Only 1st Time After Boot Hibernate?

Apr 13, 2011

pm-hibernate and pm-suspend only work the first time after booting into runlevel 5. This behavior is reproducable. pm-hibernate starts out correctly but then hangs the system bevore it gets to save the image from memory to disk. The computer locks up and does not power down.

pm-suspend: on wake up there is no signal on the screen (pm-suspend called from X environment or text terminal shows same result). I spent some time reading information on s2ram s2disk and added the follwing options:

S2RAM_OPTS="-f" in
(display adapter is GForce4 nvidia with the closed source nvidia driver for accel)
splash = n in
/etc/suspend.conf - to get some more information during the suspend / hibernate.

Any ideas to get pm-hibernate / pm-suspend to work more than one time after boot??? Hibernate would be a great start for daily work and for energy saving.

horstausdemwald PS: In runlevel 3 pm-hibernate works various times from a text terminal. Under the same condition pm-suspend leads to a scrambled text terminal after resuming (some help on this: using vga=normal in Grub). The computer continues to work - though without visual aid - when the text terminal is scarambled. For example Runlevel 5 can be called blindly from the text terminal.

SUSE :: Improperly Shutdown Suse - Restore Gnome To Automatically Load The Default User On Start Up

Jun 30, 2010

I am new to Linux and wow, it did not take me long to run into a huge snag. I am running Suse Linux Enterprise 10 on a laptop and by some strange reason the computer froze from overheating and I was forced to shutdown improperly. Once I restarted it booted right to the command prompt when it usually instead boots to the default user. I managed to get gnome running using the "startx gnome" command. But when gnome loads, none of my normal extentions load like my wireless driver, the sound driver, etc. how to restore gnome to automatically load the default user on start up or fix any other damage I might have done? lol

SUSE :: Make A Shortcut For Any Given Program?

Jun 24, 2010

After installing a few packages without a package manager (yast), I was wonding if there is anyway to make a shortcut (or application link or whatever its call) for any given program you install to show up automatically on all users desktops and start menus(for lack of a linux term). For example I installed firefox to a folder in the /opt directory and found that i could drag and drop the shell command to the desktop to make a shortcut, or i could create a new application link on my desktop and point it at firefox. But what If i wanted that to show up for all users somewhere by default? Is there anything like the "all users" desktion winXP or the "public user" in win7?

SUSE :: Unable To Get A Program To Run From The Command Line?

Nov 9, 2010

I have reinstalled Suse 10.1 as dual-boot with Windows XP. I am now unable to get a program to run from the Linux command line. I am familiar with the program and have had it running previously when the machine was Linux-only. Everything else, e.g.Firefox and Office, work fine in Suse.


The problem occurs with all commands - not just this one. is in green on the screen so I assume I should be able to run it - I have never had any problem when it was installed previously.

SUSE :: Starting A Program With Multiple Versions Installed

Feb 11, 2011

I have matlab installed on a network (I am not the administrator) and we usually start the program by typing "matlab", then choosing one of the version options from the menu i.e. typing "n". So because of this, trying to run matlab programs or commands directly like this... matlab -r ProgramName

...does not work. I just get the menu as usual and everything else is ignored. I assume the admin has overridden the matlab command with their own custom script. So my question is can I start a specific version of the program by specifying the folder that the version is in? I thought it might be something like /opt/matlab/version -r programname

this might look foolish, but I am a bit of a linux noob. Let me know if I should just ask my administrator but I thought there might be something easy I am missing.

SUSE / Novell :: No Sound After Start-up?

Sep 17, 2010

I have a default OpenSuse 11.3 system with KDE4 and alsa and an Asrock 4coredual Sata2 motherboard with intergrated audio. I configured audio by yast2 after installation of the system, and it was working. But: anytime I re-start the system, a message pops up after start-up, asking if I really want to remove audio device this and that, and no matter what I choose, there will be no sound.

I can only get sound again by:

- running yast2,
- deleting the audio device configured,
- adding the same device, and setting the volumes again.

It is rather time consuming to manually re-configure (remove and add) audio after each system start-up.Another issue: there is absolutely no way to configure skype to be able to use the microphone input. What I speak into the microphone it goes to the loudspeakers (connected to the front speaker output), but never to skype. The only way to get skype capture mic input is to configure the front speaker as a microphone input device is skype, in which case skype captures all sounds that go to the loudspeakers, but in this case sound is overly distorted. Sometimes muting channels other than Mic and Master in kmix does not work either.

Is there a way to get a working audio in today's developped linux distributions, especially SuSE 11.3, or that is the past, like convenient file managers and useable desktop?
