Ubuntu :: Common Terminal Commands Used For Troubleshooting In The Forums?

Aug 8, 2010

I need to know what commands we have people run in the terminal in order to help them troubleshoot their issue. The reason being, is I was reading a thread where someone was stating about how they had to do all this and all that from a terminal and what not and that there should be a GUI Tool.

Well I'm going to make a GUI tool that allows them to obtain all the necessary information (and fixes are possible too) to help with their issue that they're currently having. For example: I know we run lsmod for sound issues, but what other commands do you have them run to check sound, video, network, etc. It will be made in wxPython so that it can be easily sent to others. If it becomes quite useful, then maybe we could get it in the repos.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Commands At The Terminal?

Jan 21, 2010

I am in the process of coverting some video files to motion jpeg (Wii) files with ffmpeg (great program by the way). I have been successful and so the majority of my work is over. My question is simple (I think) but complex to me so... here it goes. Is there a way on one command line to "batch" convert 8 or 9 files together instead of one by one. I just don't know what to put on the command line. I took one UNIX class a long time ago and the terms pipe and such come to mind... but I forget. Any takers? That was I can write what I want the computer to do in the morning and just come back after work and voila...

Ubuntu :: How Does The Terminal Guess What Commands You Want?

Nov 17, 2010

I couldn't really find a general Ubuntu discussion area. So I typed ipconfig and of course it said no such command blah blah blah. What I found interesting was that it provided a list of other commands I may have meant to use, ie. ifconfig. So what's the algorithm used to determine the commands? Is it SOUNDEX or something else?

Ubuntu :: Get Into The Terminal From Keyboard Commands?

May 6, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04 today and wanted to reconfigure so that I could have the desktop cube again. Once I started trying to switch my settings for the cube configuration compiz asked whether I wanted to turn off various features and apparently among them was the control bar on the side and top of the screen. Now I log in to Ubuntu and I get my workspace and that's it. No control bars, just the workspace. I need to know a few things:

1) Has anyone else had this problem?

2) How do I get into the terminal from keyboard commands?

3) What terminal commands do I need to bring back at least the main toolbar so I can access programs.

Ubuntu :: Show Current Commands In Terminal?

Jan 6, 2010

I was wondering if there was a way to show all current actions I am doing in a terminal window? For example if I left a terminal window open on one of my desktops, could I make it display everything I am doing so that when I receive some general error in a program, I could jump over and get some more details. I could also use it to see what commands are actually run when I do certain things.
