Software :: GUI Dialog Box With Embedded Terminal Window?

Jun 22, 2011

I've been doing some work with BASH over the past few months, building scripts and config files, and quite happy with BASH for the purpose of building and installing distros and packages.

Now though, I'd like to go a little further than gTerm, and have a terminal window within a dialog box so I can click on buttons and set config parameters with a mouse, and watch the progress and send status messages from the script running in BASH in the terminal window back to the dialog box.

Quite a few GUI packages seem to offer the choice to open a terminal window to watch the progress. I am probably working in reverse, in wanting a terminal window to open a containing dialog box, but I'm sure it can be done if I want to go back and adapt my old MS-DOS 286 C skills to Linux.

What I'd prefer is a quick and easy way: to just find a tool like whiptail or zenity or dialog, setup a couple of buttons and a message / progress bar, and dump my BASH script terminal output into a window inside the dialog box.

Can anybody suggest offhand which of these mentioned dialog packages (ie. whiptail dialog zenity) or any others, provide an option to open a terminal window inside a dialog box? Then pass fairly simple variables between the two?

General :: Create A Menu Box Window Using Dialog In Shell Scripting

Feb 3, 2010

I am using Linux on my system. I don't have gui for my system, only console is there.

I have some task to create a menu box window using dialog in shell scripting.

I have to take input from user & save it in a file.

But this should like html form as e.g.

Name - .....................
email id - ..................
phone - ......................
location - ...................

Submit Cancel

Such window should be displayed on console using dialog & then user will enter his information there as Name,email id, phone,etc & submit it, then it gets saved to a file. Here submit & cancle are buttons. I have to do it in bash shell scripting. Or give me some examples like the above with shell script code.

Ubuntu :: No Sound And No Shutdown/restart Options?

May 3, 2010

This is a really weird issue. I'm using 10.04 and on occasion when I boot into Ubuntu the sound doesn't work along with losing the ability to shutdown via the menu. When I click shutdown it just logs out. I need to shut down my PC by using the terminal.

It's strange because the sound and shutdown work as expected most of the time. The issue is seemingly random.

Ubuntu :: Suddenly Unable To Shutdown Or Restart 10.04

May 21, 2010

I installed 10.04 on my old Dell Inspiron 600m laptop. After using it for about an hour, I was suddenly had no option to shutdown or restart the system when logged in on the main and only account. The 'Shut Down' applet on my bar was greyed out and the shutdown option was missing from the system menu.

I removed the 'Shut Down" applet and was unable to re-add it afterwards (wasn't a selection when adding to panel). If I log off, selecting shutdown or restart from the login screen does nothing.

'Sudo shutdown now' will shut it down, though it won't power the system off; it just hangs on an all-white screen.

I saw other posts suggesting Open Office Quickstart was the culprit, though I am not running this.

Ubuntu :: See Console Text On Restart/shutdown?

Aug 4, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 on an IBM Thinkpad T60, when I try to Logoff, Restart, or Shutdown the system just goes to a black screen and I'm forced to do a hard reset to restart the system. I did a reinstall and things seemed to be working fine until I applied updates and reloaded my package list from my previous install then I got the same conditions as before. I suspect that this my be a result of a bad package or update. What I want to know is if their is a way to display console text of the shutdown process so I can see where the system hangs and possibly remove the problem application. I have an AMD 64 bit desktop running with the same package lists and have no issues I suspect it is a hardware specific issue for the laptop or an error with a 32 bit install.

Ubuntu :: Restart - Shutdown Requires Root Password ?

Jan 11, 2010

I have been having a small problem since I upgraded from Jaunty to Karmic, whenever I shutdown or restart, root password is required due to multiple users being logged-in.

I have run ck-list-sessions, however I can not trace where (or what) session 5 is.


Since I have MythTV installed and there was a similar bug, I tried the following solution without any success: [url].

Ubuntu :: Boot Priority Change With Every Restart After Shutdown

Mar 4, 2010

Whenever I start my PC, the information of 'First Boot device' in BIOS changes from hard disk to CD-Rom. It happens with new start, I mean, if I restart my computer after resetting First boot device to hard disk, then priority does not change. Just as I switch on computer, a black screen appears with the message:
CMOS - checksum error - defaults loaded
press F1 to continue, DEL to enter setup

Recently it used to happen, that PC was not reading my hard disk containing GRUB. I have 2 hard disks. I switched the power cables of two hard disks. After that, both hard disks were shown by BIOS but the above mentioned error started appearing. Also grub takes too much time to load. It takes almost 20 seconds. Earlier I was using 'Puppy Linux'. In that, Grub was loading in fraction of second.

Ubuntu :: Installed Kubuntu Desktop And No Shutdown Or Restart In KDE

May 11, 2010

I just recently installed Kubuntu desktop onto Ubuntu and I don't have any shutdown or restart options shown in KDE, but they show up in Gnome. I initially installed Kubuntu using GDM instead of KDM and switched to KDM when I saw that my Gnome taskbars overlayed my KDE taskbars. To switch from GDM to KDM I used the following command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm

After enabling KDM the terminal suggested a command to configure KDM, however I can't remember the command. I ran it and I got a message that KDM was already configured.

Ubuntu :: Hide Verbose Messages On Restart / Shutdown?

Jul 8, 2010

I have Lucid installed on two PCs. The PCs are identical except one uses the on-board Intel G33 video controller while the other has an nvidia 210 video card attached. The nvidia PC restarts/shuts down without showing any console text messages, however the Intel based PC has the following problem. The software on both machines is identical (except for the nvidia packages).

On restart or shutdown on the intel based PC plymouth gives way to a console for 2 or 3 seconds showing the following (none of which are errors as far as i know)...

Broadcast Message from root@xyz-desktop
(unknown) at 11:44 ...
The System is going down for restart NOW!
* Deactivating Swap ...
* Unmounting weak filesystems ...

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Suspend/restart/shutdown/logout Often Freezes?

Oct 21, 2010

Lenovo X200 notebook, 64bit maverick, external monitor connected through DisplayPort, fast SSD drive, encrypted homeI'm almost positive these issues were non existent after installing 10.10RC, but I'm not 100% sure. Maybe I will install it again to check it outAnyway, when I try to suspend/restart/shutdown/logout the system often freezes, showing the console with the similar output:I know this guy is running Ubuntu in VM, but I have very similar ouput, except the last usplash line.But the first line I always have in the output is the infamousQuote:GLIb-WARNING **: getpwid_r(): failed due to unknown user id (0)On a very rare occassion, the system hanged while booting (showing the above glib line as well. But that's quite rare, so I'm not that concerned.

Now, sometimes it does respond to ctrl+alt+delete after freezing, and after I hit this combination, another line appears (from memory):Quote:Init: rc main process killed by TERM signalChecking for running unattended-upgradesBut that's it, I cannot do anything else, only hard reset, which is especially painful when I suspend in the middle of work...There is no interesting information in the logs - a few messages in the kern.log, but nothing I think would show the culpritEDIT: other than that, the machine is very stable and I have no issues with it. It also worked perfectly on lucid 32bit.

Ubuntu :: Remove Shutdown / Restart From Login Screen?

Mar 20, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 (and, on another server, 10.10) and can't seem to figure out how to remove the Shutdown and Restart options from the menu on the bottom right of the login screen.

I've tried

Code: gksudo -u gdm dbus-launch gconf-editor and checking the /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_restart_buttons, but it doesn't do anything even after a reboot. I've also tried the above command as root (without the "-u gdm").

I have also tried adding the following lines to /etc/gdm/custom.conf:

Code: RebootCommand= ShutdownCommand= These seem to have no effect either. Is this a Gnome bug, or am I doing something wrong?
