On my pc i have ubuntu 10.10 64bit desktop installed.on this pc i have a server running in a terminal.the terminal starts when i boot my pc.the "problem" is that it starts on my primary desktop, the one i see.i have the default amount of desktops: 4 and desktop cube enabled with compiz.now i want that the server starts in full-screen mode on my second desktop, so i can switch to it with ctr-alt arrow if i want to.can this be done ?this is how i start the server:i give this command in start-up applications:
sh "/home/user/Minecraft Server/run_on_startup.sh"
this is the script that starts the gnome terminal:
I wondered if whether there is any way to make the xterm fullscreen and have the same white/purple colors as gnome-terminal in 10.04.I already know how to modify the command for the xterm session, but I want to know what options to give xterm to get the fullscreen white/purple look.
Just did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on my netbook and for some reason when I fullscreen Impress (to play a slide show) it still shows my gnome panel at the top of the screen... Any solutions/suggestions to fix this? I dislike having to remove and re-add my gnome panel to give presentations from my netbook.
Does anyone else have the problem with Natty 64 bit, where when apps are opened up in full screen its not filling the screen properly, until the app in minimized & maximized again? Unity works fine, this is only an issue in classic mode.
gnome-mplayer --fullscreen file.avi opens file in the window, manually I can switch it to fullscreen but I need to start in fullscreen from command linemplayer -f file.avi opens in fullscreen from the beginning but if to play a list it shows desktop between files how to fix the problem with gnome-mplayer?

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!
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.
Is there a terminal emulator which works well in an Ubuntu desktop and provides the following features which Mac OS X's Terminal application has? Re-wrapping text when the window is resized.A Clear¯ command which clears scrollback (as the shell clear does not) and does not clear the cursor's line (typically containing a prompt).
I find xcompmgr more than adequate for making a desktop look pretty modern, and I don't like the more extravagentCompiz gimmicks - but there is one thing that irritates when using xcompmgr which someone here might have worked round.
Rounded window borders don't draw and redraw properly when using the Terminal (gnome-terminal and the LXDE and Xfce ones) or system monitor and moving them from their default place. You get this little white botch at the corners. I'm not massively technical and I'm ambivalent about how much more I want to learn as I have plenty of creative outlets already, but I would like to solve this. Somehow xcompmgr is treating these programs as a different class? It's capable of drawing the window borders properly as it is just these two programs that get botched. Possibly this doesn't get noticed as maybe people usually use xcompmgr with openbox and LXDE and their square window borders. I did do a search but there was nothing matching what I saw.
I'm running CentOS 5.4 on i386 machine with 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5Whenever I login into Gnome, a gnome-termial window comes up. Instantly title says root@localhost before settling with user@localhost with current directory as ~/Downloads. Only happens with my particular user account (normal user), not with root as I tried. I also have KDE, Xfce, Fluxbox as other option at login, but terminal only shows up when I log into Gnome (not kde, xfce or fluxbox)I've done and
1. cronetab -e Nothing there. 2. Don't have ~/.xinitrc ~/.session 3. Nothing in ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile 4. Nothing in /etc/rc.local
I just installed 9.10 and this is my first time using Ubuntu. I was using Kubuntu before and used KPPP with my Verizon USB720 wireless card. It's the type that gets internet access through the cell towers.I installed KPPP but when I try to start it I get this error:
Could not launch KPPP Failed to execute child process (permission denied)
I tried Gnome PPP and it would open but not connect. This is what is in my log files"
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60 --> Cannot get information for serial port. --> Initializing modem.
After doing much searching and reading I figured out to open Gnome PPP from the terminal with sudo. When I do that it works fine. Also KPPP opens that way although I haven't tried it to see if it connects. Although this works it's not a very convenient way to connect. How can I get it to work without doing this?
Is there a way to completely replace my gnome terminal with the lxde terminal (lxterminal)? I use the nautilus open terminal extension quite a bit, and I'd like to set this to use the lxterminal, but I'm not sure how. Is this possible?
I just installed ubuntu 10.04 on our laptop. for convenience I also installed the dutch (gnome) translation and selected Dutch as the default language so all menu's and localisation is suitable for the Netherlands and the misses understands stuff. However I noticed that the gnome terminal is also translated so all output from bash is now in Dutch too. This is really inconvenient since I have been using bash in english on fedora and ubuntu for 10 years now. So is there a way to reconfigure gnome term (bash) to default back to english and leave the GUI in Dutch?
Editing the profile in gnome-terminal has absolutely no effect on the appearance. I can change background color, transparency, image, etc. in the profile edit window, save changes,and the _actual_ terminal appearance does not change at all. I did make sure to switch to the edited profile after editing -- to no avail.The default navy-on-light-blue isn't bad, but the light-green default for executables is effectively completely invisible on the light blue background.Is this a bug? Or does someone have a workaround?FWIW, gnome-terminal in 9.10 was completely customizable
Code: gnome-terminal -x /usr/local/bin/matlab After using MATLAB a few times, I realized that my gnome-terminal icon has actually been replaced with the MATLAB icon, even when I'm running the terminal by itself. Meaning that it shows the MATLAB icon in the taskbar and the Run Applications dialog when I type in gnome-terminal.
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. Anyways i was wondering if it's possible to see pictures in the gnome-terminal. So can we use a framebuffer to see pictures in the default terminal? how to activate the buffer and see the pictures.
I've attached a thumbnail of the terminal i'm talking about
Code:bash: /dev/cgroup/cpu/user/8841/tasks: No such file or directorybash:/dev/cgroup/cpu/user/8841/notify_on_release: No such file or directoryAfter these two lines I get a normal working bash prompt.Could be related: Installed Xubuntu, then installed ubuntu-desktop and removed xubuntu-desktop&all xfce stuff.
A few minutes ago, without any apparent reason, my gnome-terminal started refusing acceptance of lowercase 'L'. When I hit the 'L' key, the menu toggles between visible and hidden. Note, this is lower case 'L', not uppercase.
I've seen lots of posts all over the Internet that advise users to check the "Run command as a login shell" checkbox in GNOME Terminal under Edit->Profile Preferences->Title and Command.
This makes gnome-terminal run bash/csh/tcsh/ksh as a login shell, which it does not do by default. In turn, running gnome-terminal as a login shell sources the system and user login scripts. This sets up things like colored ls etc.
It seems like gnome-terminal should be a login shell by default. Why isn't it? I've never seen a good explanation of why gnome-terminal isn't a login shell. The "Run command as a login shell" checkbox must be unchecked by default for some good reason, right?
