Debian Multimedia :: Skype Starting Every Time When Open Interactive Root Shell

Jan 20, 2015

I recently "upgraded" to the latest skype and now every time I open an interactive root shell, up pops skype. I can close skype then control-C in the terminal window to get the shell I want, but this is annoying to say the least. Maybe my google-foo is off, but all I can find is articles on how to run skype as root, which is no use. I've tried searching the startup files for "skype" (case independant), but so far all I can find is "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/bin/skype" in the root .bashrc which shouldn't be starting the app.

what could be causing this?

OpenSUSE :: Root Trying To Open Flashplayer In KDE Getting Cannot Open Display

Feb 18, 2011

We have a digital signage appliance built on SUSE 11.3 with a LAMP server that uses the flashplayer application to play a .swf file from localhost. It is a AOpen GP7A mini pc that has the nVidia drivers loaded. We have lots of customers that have been running the exact same system for over 6 months (we image the drive for each sale).

For some reason, my last customer is seeing the following problem shown below, and this linux configuration is way over my head. Everything else is working (local LAMP server is working, communicating with our production servers to get information works, etc). I have verified that it is screen 0 that is running (at least it shows with Ctrl-Alt-F7). I thought that it may have occurred because of updating the software with zypper up. I had the customer rebuild from the image being careful not to upgrade the software. The result was the same. The pc is a newer version compared to my bench pc, but there are multiple other customers running that same version just fine. So I am not sure if it is

The command is issued by a php script that is run in a root cron job. As I said, it works great on all other customer pc's including my bench system. I also tried to execute the command on a ssh terminal as the root user with the same result. I also upgraded my bench pc and it still worked properly.

The command being executed is sudo env DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/home/svision/.Xauthority flashplayer http://localhost/flash/sign.swf &

the result (when run in terminal) is: No protocol specified (flashplayer:15077): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

OpenSUSE :: Using Gedit As Root: Gtk-WARNING **: Cannot Open Display

Jan 23, 2011

I've been searching for a permanent solution for some time now, but the threads containing the same error message never seem to be about the same issue.I want to:I'm not trying anything fancy, all I want to do is open a write-protected file with gedit as root, like so:

Code:

# sudo gedit /usr/bin/deadbeef

..but every time I try, no matter the file, I get this error message:

Code:

(gedit: [process #] ): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display

I already know: I can circumvent this by going:

Code:

# xhost +local:root
# sudo su
# export DISPLAY=:0.0

Ubuntu :: Make A Shell Script Run With Root AND Non-root Priveledges?

Jul 28, 2010

I have a bit of a dilemma.

I'm using XFCE and it doesn't by default lock the screen before hibernating. I see this as a bit of a security risk, and as I can't hibernate while the screen is locked, I'm a bit lost as to how to achieve this.

I've begun editing /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh, here's what I have so far code...

If I run with sudo, the system hibernates, but gnome-screensaver will not fire. I can verify this by trying "sudo gnome-screensaver-command --lock". The screen goes black, but is not locked. The screen locks properly without sudo.

So the only solution I can see is to edit /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh in such a way that gnome-screensaver-command runs under the current user, and pm-hibernate is called as root.

Also, when I click the HIBERNATE button in XFCE, how does it call pm-hibernate under root without prompting me for a password? I normally wouldn't be interested in such things, but as it seems relevant to my problem I'm a little more eager to learn

General :: X11 Forwarding - Error: Can't Open Display: <ip Of Display>

Jun 28, 2011

I have the following scenario that doesn't seem to work normally. I have a windows 7 pc from which I am using putty to connect to my other linux servers (all running redhat 5 and 6). So here is the scenario that works and one that does not work. And I'm trying to figure out the one that does not work. Scenario that works:

From windows 7 (putty) I ssh into Linux_Server_1.
echo $DISPLAY
localhost:10.0

I run xclock and I see it pop up on my windows 7 pc. I am using xming on windows 7 to help me populate the display from linux to windows. One that does not work:

From windows 7 (putty) I ssh into Linux_Server_1. Then from Linux_Server_1 I ssh into Linux_Server_2.
echo $DISPLAY
<no output>

I try to setup $DISPLAY with localhost:10.0 or 0.0 or even my windows 7 pc ip address:0.0 ....etc Then when I try to run xclock I doesn't work.

I get these error messages: Error: Can't open display: <ip of display>

Also as a side note all our Linux servers are sitting on one subnet. My pc is sitting on another subnet. I use vpn to connect to the subnet where the servers sit from my pc.

Software :: Starting Shell Script In GUI

Jan 9, 2011

I need to start a (bash) script in XFCE or GNOME so that, by double clicking its icon, it opens in a new shell window where it can be stopped with ctrl+c. As it is, when I start it, it runs in background (does not open window), so I need to manually start terminal and kill process. Also I don't see the output and that is important.

Ubuntu :: NTB Freezes Display Turns Off After Starting XFCE?

Nov 10, 2010

I have fresh installation of Ubuntu server upgraded with apt-get dist-upgrade and with XFCE4 installed on my notebook. The problem is whenever I type startxfc, startx or X, the NTB freezes, CRT display connected to docking station/port replicator turns off, LCD in NTB gets black. The system does not respong to any signal, even the alt+sysrq ones. If I even install Xubuntu-desktop, as the X gets loaded every start, system everytime hangs after few seconds and I cannot do anything. Now I reinstalled and tried autoconfiguration with Xorg -configure. If I start the X with this configuration file, the result is still the same. Log at /var/log/X11/ seems to be blank.

Any ideas? Should i try to get drivers for my video card? I thought this is not necessary, the X server should start without anything, even only with basic resolution settings. As I looked, the video card chipset (Intel 82852/82855) is detected in my /root/xorg.conf.new file.

Debian :: Root Access And Desktop Disabled \ Couldn't Open The Root Terminal?

Feb 19, 2011

I was using the latest stable release of Debian, dual-booted alongside Windows Vista, with the GNOME desktop, installed via netinst, trying to build and install a library that I knew and trusted, when suddenly I couldn't open the Root Terminal. I clicked the link (in Applications->Accessories (I think, whatever the top one is)->Root Terminal), and in the taskbar I saw an item that said "Starting Root Terminal". A few seconds later, that went away, but the terminal still wasn't open. I tried the regular user terminal, to see the same thing happen. Unsure of what was happening, I tried restarting my computer, since that's always the first step you should take in computer problems.

When I restarted, GNOME wouldn't start. The screen would flash a bit for a few seconds, then a dialog box would appear over a background of static that said "The greeter application is crashing. Attempting another one...".t would then go back to the DOS-style kernel, wait a second, and then the same thing would happen. After several of that, I would get a blue screen which said something to the effect of "It has been detected that the desktop environment has crashed six times in the past 30 seconds.

Waiting two minutes before trying again." When it did that, I tried logging in as root to assess the problem. I gave it the correct password, but it said that it was an incorrect login. After several tries (to ensure I didn't mistype the password), I logged in as myself. Same problem. I tried the su command, with the correct password, and it said it couldn't authorise it.

After a lengthy conversation with a friend of mine who was very good with computers, he basically summarised that he had no clue, but that his best guess would be a virus. Upon running the Linux installer, I found the Repair option. Not being particularly familiar with Linux, I used it simply to backup my important files onto a flash drive. I then tried running the Install option, in an attempt to simply write over my existing Linux and make it new again. The installer, however, consistently froze up when trying to start the partitioner, on the "Checking disks..." stage. I figured it was a problem with my partition. In my naivete, I simply used the Windows tools to clear that partition... It destroyed GRUB too, so I couldn't run any OS. I figured my computer was pretty well screwed, and at that point just decided to bring it into the shop and have them completely wipe it.

my computer was backed up onto an external hard driven I brought it back, I reinstalled Windows. Upon restart, it said that it was still looking for GRUB, which made no sense to me. After messing around with it a bit, I decided to just reinstall Linux too. To my lack of surprise, that fixed the problem. Both OS' now ran just fine. The first thing I did on Debian was to install the Clam Anti-Virus, which I understood to be one of the best Linux anti-viruses. However, within about 10 hours, got the same problem as originally. I wasn't doing any of the same things, and between the lack of consistency in activities and the fact that I had an anti-virus running,figured it wasn't a virus. Not knowing what to do, I just left it and have been using Windows since.
