Ubuntu :: Bash Script For Remote Terminal

Apr 13, 2011

I'm trying to make a cheap bash script that will log me into a remote terminal. When I run the script, it prompts me for a password. I'd like to include the password entry into the bash script. How do I do this?

General :: Bash - Sync Files Between 2 Remote Computers Using Terminal

Jun 25, 2011

I want to be able to synchronise files between 2 remote computers in both directions. Say for example that I want to synchronize my /home/Documents directory with <username>@example.com:/home/Documents What's the easiest way to update the folders in both directions, so that new/updated files on my home computer get transferred to the remote computer, and new/updated files on the remote computer get transferred to my home computer?

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

Ubuntu :: Bash Broken, Lost Functionality In Terminal (gnome-terminal)?

Dec 10, 2010

Linux-goers. I did some research on this, but I am still fairly new to Linux. In Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick), I accidentally overwrote my "/bin/bash" file. Dude, using "sudo" with a small typo can work disasters. Bash is now broken in the Terminal (gnome-terminal). Terminal itself still works fine, technically, but bash is still hosed/broken. Here is what I did to try to fix it: Booted from Ubuntu 10.10 live CD. Mounted my Ubuntu partition and manually copied the good/fresh "bash" file onto my hard drive. Verified copy was successful. Didn't help, as you see. Reinstalled "gnome-terminal" using synaptic package manager. Tried to reinstall bash via synaptic, it failed with error, "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/bash_4.1-2ubuntu4_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 2"

In Terminal, all basic commands work as far as I can tell. ("ls", "pwd", navigation, etc.) Here are some problems:My "username@computername" does not display in the prompt; only the $ sign. Bash keyboard shortcuts such as uparrow and tab do not work. Instead, each inserts a key code. I can't even move the cursor left/right. Aliases (a function of bash and .bashrc) are broken, of course. My sanity level decreases when I use Terminal now. For what it's worth, even with "sudo" I get a "permission denied" error when trying to run Google Chrome! I read something about a ".bashrc" file being a possible problem, but I don't know how to make it work, or the file's proper locations in Ubuntu 10.10. Is there something I can do with a "make" or "apt-get install" command or something?? Could this simply be a permissions problem? Is the link to "/bin/bash", "/bin/sh", or a ".bashrc" file broken? Guide me, oh Linux gurus.

P.S. I always wondered what exactly bash was and how it was different from the basic terminal. LoL, this is an excellent way to demonstrate the difference, and I WANT IT BACK!

Ubuntu Networking :: Bash Script Over SSH On Remote Server

Dec 8, 2010

I've been trying to set up guake to automatically open 2 programs in two different tabs via ssh on my remote server. I have succeeded in doing this, however whenever the last command is run the terminal tab locks up and I can't enter any input, the only command that works is ctrl+c to kill (in this case) iptraf. I think it might be something to do with how I'm sending my ssh password using echo and pipe. This is my script:

Code:
#! /bin/bash
# script to launch multiple guake windows on Network21 local server
guake --rename-tab=Htop21 --execute-command="ssh -t 192.168.1.137 'htop'" &
sleep 5 &&
guake --new-tab=2 --rename-tab=Iptraf21 --execute-command="ssh -t 192.168.1.137 'echo password | sudo -S iptraf'" &

The first and second commands always work, whilst the last one loads iptraf then the cpu maxes out and i can't enter anything unless I kill the program. I've also tried nload and a couple of others, with the same results.

Ubuntu :: Copying File To A Remote Ftp Server With Bash

Jan 10, 2011

I'm hoping to set up a cron job that takes a file and copies it to a remote password protected FTP server. I've got a command that formats the file with the correct name and I've put it in the anacron file in /etc/cron.d (which I think is right, haven't tested it yet).I'm not sure how to copy the file to a remote server though. I do actually have the ftp server bookmarked in my places menu. So is there a simple way of suppling a file path that will put it straight into that folder? The only problem I can see with this is that the connection won't be open continuously, so would need to be re-opened when needed (I could presumably save the password in the keyring so that I don't need to be there to type it in).

Or maybe set up a cron job that connects to and mounts the ftp server a minute before it has to copy the file over?

Programming :: Click 'submit' In A Remote Web Form From Bash?

May 26, 2011

I have created a simple web form which pokes a PHP script:

<form name="update" action="http://www.mysite.com/script.php" method="POST">
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="submit">
</form>

I can easily surf along to the URL [URL] and click the submit button which pokes script.php and everyone's happy. Automating this in iMacros or Selenium - no problem.

I want to automate this in a bash cron on the same server - preferably as a one-liner.

I *thought* something like this might work:

Code:
wget --spider --post-data="submit=submit" http://www.mysite.com/wget.html

or

Code:
curl -d "submit=submit" http://www.mysite.com/wget.html

and many variations thereof but no luck.

Is there ANY way I can click the submit button from a Bash command line? Curl, wget, lynx - one of these simply MUST be capable of this.

I do not want to run script.php from the command line - there are loads of relative links etc.

Ubuntu Servers :: View A Physical Terminal On A Remote Screen?

Nov 9, 2010

how to get the terminal displayed on my serverbox to show up in a terminal on my laptop. I have a minecraft server running on ubuntu server edition 10.04 on a headless server. I also have a monitor, but it's a big bulky CRT and my girlfriend doesn't like having a huge amount of stuff tucked behind our chair where the router is (wifi wasn't working right, nor is it stable).

Essentially, when I ssh into the box, it creates a new terminal for me to input things on. That's nice when I need to edit stuff in the background, but when I want to input commands on the server directly, there's no real way to do that without blindly typing on my keyboard on the box itself. Not to mention, I can't see anything if something goes wrong. A friend of mine mentioned the 'screen' command, and that sort of works I guess, but it still doesn't show the minecraft server output, nor let me input.

tl:dr;

is there a way to get a physical terminal output to display on a remote ssh terminal screen?

Ubuntu :: Bash: Determine If Running In Terminal?

Jul 10, 2010

I'm writing a bash script to move files around based on various bits of metadata. For a few reasons, this script will be run regularly both from the terminal, and from the nautilus-scripts folder ("graphically", if you will). What I'm stumped on is having the script defer outputs based on which mode the script is running in. For example, how can I have the script know whether to echo error statements, or pump them out to zenity based on the method of invocation?

Ubuntu :: Bash For Programs Running In Terminal?

Aug 9, 2011

Trying to write a script for desktop launchers that are adaptable to screen resolution. Ideally, the program should:

1. Determine screen resolution:

if "a" use xdotool options window size 1305 x 869 px and move to 135,0
if "b" use xdotool options window size 1545 x 1019 px and move to 135,0

2. Check if program running:

if no, open program, and use "a" or "b" placement options, focus window
if yes, focus window

3. Close script and leave program open (if possible).

Problems arise when trying to use the script on programs that run from and hog the terminal
(e.g. brasero, gcalctool, nautilus)

Here the script will load the program, and nothing else (probably because it still occupies the terminal as it runs)

Code:

gcalctool && xdotool search "calculator" windowmove 135 0

This next command will cause the program to load, move, but it keeps focusing itself like xdotool is running the windowmove function constantly - it keeps focusing itself until script stopped.

Code:

gcalctool & xdotool search "calculator" windowmove 135 0

This had the same effect as the above code, but seems to work as a conditional subscript running when the process is running in the terminal - it just goes infinitely.

Code:

while [1] ; do xdotool search "calculator" windowmove 135 0 done exit

Is there some kind of "if, then" or "while, do" or some kind of conditional I can put in to the script ensure the window is moved only once if the program is running within the terminal? Is there a way to remove the program from the terminal from the script once it's been called?

Ubuntu Security :: Truecrypt - Remote Mount Volume - Or Send Bash Script Remotely?

Apr 1, 2011

I have an Ubuntu 10.04 machine at home and apache setup on it (files are located in a Truecrypt volume). The reason for the web server being that I wanted to access my files wherever I'm at (i.e. hotel, work, hotspots, etc...). So far, it's worked out great for me seeing as a I can http download my files (or stream media files). However, I am often on a public hotspot and I know it's a matter of time before someone finds the webserver on my computer. I have the machine firewalled and password protected (via .htaccess), but either way I don't want people looking in on my computer.

The problem: I have used Truecrypt for a long time and completely trust using the program to encrypt/unencrypt a volume container to store my files. Usually, I would remote desktop into my computer and mount/unmount the volume when I needed it. However, after time it get's really annoying to do this. So I eventually figured out how to setup a bash script to automatically do this for me (which I put on the usb part of my phone). What I wanted to do was to be able send the bash script to my Ubuntu machine (via ftp from my phone) and have Ubuntu automatically run the script. Is this possible? What programs do I need on Ubuntu?

I was thinking about using something like cron, but that is for scheduled times. I don't really have a set time in which I need my files, it's pretty sporadic depending on how much I travel. Thus the need for being able to remotely mount the volume when I need it.

Summary: I need a way for Ubuntu to read a folder every minute or so to check for bash scripts to run. I want to be able to send the bash script via ftp from my phone, have Ubuntu run the script, then delete itself (so as to not store the password). I already know the script in which to mount the Truecrypt volume and how to send the file via ftp from my phone. It's really a matter of what program to use in Ubuntu to find and run the script.

Fedora :: Terminal Comes Up As Csh Not Bash

Apr 20, 2011

I wanted to change my $PATH and my prompt, had some trouble with setting and exporting the variables and found that the shell was csh instead of the bash which I expected. I worked around it by creating a .cshrc which calls bash but don't know what caused the change. I've got as far as seeing that the gnome-terminal command kicks it all off from the Applications>System Tools menu but what happens between there and the terminal popping up?

General :: Bash - Using Terminal Vs KDE?

Mar 18, 2010

Im used to using nautilus within centos but have recently just got a VPS and quickly realising that using a KDE is unacceptable in this environment. Although I do find it so much quicker doing things like folder permissions in KDE rather than typing it all out in the terminal? Everyone I speak to says, use the terminal and I should learn this way as opposed to using the KDE, but theres certain things I just dont get

How is it possible to make quick changes to scripts and viewing them in a browser etc , without a mouse or using KDE? and only using a terminal?? I am wondering how to develop websites just using the terminal?

How can it be quicker to type out/view permissions etc in the terminal when its instant and just a few clicks in the KDE?

General :: Bash Script That Read From File And Ping Remote Host

Feb 13, 2011

Q=What will this do?
A=This will read from /root/Desktop/iplist (or anywhere you want to put the list) after it reads the ip it will ping the ip two times. If the remote host is up then it will write the ip to a log. If the ping fails it will display it on the screen, write the ip to syslog so that you can do remote logging, and last it will send the ip by email to a user or a group of users.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
#wrote by Zach Underwood feb-12-2011
#test and wrote on centos 5.5 with sendmail
rm -f /root/Desktop/iplog #This will remove the good iplog
exec 9</root/Desktop/iplist #put full path the file where ip list is. Make sure that the ips are listed one per line.
while read -u9 ip
do
ping -c 2 $ip > /dev/null 2> /dev/null # ping and discard output
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then # check the exit code
echo "$ip is up" >> /root/Desktop/iplog #write the ip of the hosts that are up
else
echo "$ip is down" # will show on the screen the ips that are not up
logger -p auth.notice "$ip is down" # will write the down host to syslog
echo "$ip is down" | mail -v -s alert user@anydomain.com > /dev/null 2> /dev/null #will send mail users about host down
fi

General :: Capturing Remote Output Locally In Mac Terminal?

Jun 2, 2011

I want local programmatic access to ssh output in Mac Terminal. First, I tried redirecting the output of each command to a file. The file was perfect, but of course it was on the remote server, and an sftp for each command output seemed a little.. Next, I tried to Applescript Terminal, but it only gives access to the currently visible text in a tab (i.e. if half the output has already scrolled out of sight, it doesn't get returned - useless).

Last, I tried piping ssh to tee (e.g. ssh user@host | tee output.txt). This almost worked. I have the output in a local file, but there are a lot of unwanted characters mixed in. For example, every time I hit backspace, there's a ^H in the file. There's also text like "[0m[K" which is harder to get rid of.

General :: Start Up Gnome Desktop From Remote Terminal?

Jul 27, 2009

I looked around for threads addressing this issue and some have come close to answering it, but I have yet to see a definitive yes or no. Anyway - Here's my issue:

Background:
I can SSH into my home computer (Ubuntu 9.04 running Gnome) from work (Win XP Pro) using RealVNC via Putty tunnels. This has been working flawlessly for me for awhile now. I was messing around in the terminal window and accidentally rebooted the linux box (home computer) while I was at work. No big deal I thought. So I re-start the Putty connection, and it is back up in no time. Then I try to start the VNC connection, and no go, connection refused. I remember seeing that in order for the VNC connection to work, I had to be logged into the Gnome desktop already on the Ubuntu box.

Question:
Is it possible to log in and start up a Gnome desktop session from the terminal command line in Putty so I can get the VNC connection back?

Ubuntu :: Short Key To Command Histroy In Terminal Running Bash?

Jan 20, 2011

In windows command prompt, F8 key can cycle through your previously entered commands i.e say you enter "ping google.com" and then "pushd <dir>". Next when you type p and then press F8 brings pushd and next F8 brings ping command. You can then hit enter to execute the corresponding command i.e ping in this case.Is there anything similar in Ubuntu Terminal running bash? Very handy to get back previously entered commands.
