Ubuntu :: Halevt And Permissions, Commands Running But Not Correctly?

Nov 19, 2010

I recently decided to attempt to implement automatically disabling my laptop's touchpad when my external mouse is connected, and I am just about there.Unfortunately, what I suspect to be a permissions problem is stopping me from succeeding.Here's what I have done sofar:Written a Script which will enable or disable the touchpad based upon cli argument (verified to work when called via terminal)Set up a rule for halevt which successfully launches an arbitrary command when the mouse is connected or disconnected (even successfully logging itself)Determined that the script is in fact being called upon device connection (by adding echo statements to the script which are working)When launching halevt, I have even tried running it as my user/group, and with a special config file, all to no avail.Also, here is my command to run halevt:

sudo halevt -u brendon -g brendon -c /home/brendon/.halevt.xml
My .halevt.xml file:

Ubuntu :: Repair Broken HALEVT?

Sep 1, 2011

Is there any way to repair halevt? If I reinstall via synaptic the installation fails with HALevt error 100. Then all installations of any kind report same error. I researched and found a way to remove the app install bug. However, mounting, accessing usb devices is still heavily problematic. I assume halevt needs reinstalling, but seems impossible.

Ubuntu :: Running Commands On Login?

Sep 22, 2010

I have been trying to figure out how to automatically run terminal commands on login. For example, I want to run Firefox on login. When I run 'firefox' in terminal, it opens. This is what I tried:I went to System > Preference > Startup Applications and clicked on 'Add'. I gave it a name, typed 'firefox' into the command field and left the comment blank and added it to the list, making sure that the box was checked.

Ubuntu Servers :: Any Way To See Running Commands With Timestamp?

Jul 26, 2010

I recently hired a new tech guy to start managing our servers. In doing this I went ahead and upgraded all the servers. It has been awhile now since I sent him the details of the new server and the last time I talked to him he was joking around with one of the other clients not realizing how long it took.

I know on other server moves, my old guy could have everything setup and running in a couple days as a good amount of time is waiting for the data to copy over. I am starting to wonder if this guy is going to try and throw a huge bill at me, so I would like to know what hes doing on the server with time stamps just so I can get a idea of how much time he has been logged into the server. Does this server OS have anything like this built in?

Software :: Xclock Running From Start Script Doesn't Display Correctly?

Feb 21, 2011

I recently dist-upgraded from Debian 5 to 6 (squeeze). Since then, the xclock I run from my window manager's start script isn't displaying correctly (it displays only a "0"). The thing is, if I run the same command in my start script in my terminal, it works just fine, as it has always done...

I use this rather "old" X applications because I like my programs simple/not buggy/fast, and it's resulting a rather annoying problem (being that apparently nobody else has it...).
All other programs in my start script (gnome-terminal, emacs, xmodmap, etc) are working with no problems whatsoever.

My window manager: sawfish

Command to run xclock in my start script:

xclock -digital -brief -geometry -0+0
Attached picture:
Top: xclock initialized by start script
Bottom: xclock initialized by terminal

Ok, so I have a few web apps that need to run shell commands. Heres a great example of one:


This is a PHP script getting my system volume. Herein lies the problem... www-data doesn't have permission to do this!

I changed my apache config to use MY account as the web user, and it does in fact work the way I want it to.

Obviously, I dont want to leave apache running as me, and want it to keep using www-data.... heres my question... how can I give permission for www-data to execute certain programs?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Running Script And Commands Through SSH?

Apr 14, 2011

I am trying to run some simulations through SSH from my mac on our university SOLARIS system. My problem is that whenever I want to execute a command I get an error which says "Invalid argument". Maybe I should explain more what I want to do and what I did.Firstly I installed a software which I need to run, I did it through ThinLink, and it seems that it is running fine without a problems. I can execute all commands and scripts. Installed software contains tens of small programs. I have compiled it and assign the PATH to be able to use the software. This was still via ThinLink. Then I wanted to start to use SSH since it should be more secure and also faster for me. When I wanted to do same think as in ThinLink I got the message Invalid argument. For example I run a command which use program gensky. I wrote:

Code: gray1(dava) $ gensky 4 4 4

I got:

Code: -bash: ............/Radiance_install/bin/gensky: Invalid argument (i replaced the path to my home directory by dots) The PATH to the program seams correct but it does not run correctly. With SSH I can log into the remote machine and see all the files which I have on the disk as well as to run standard commands like mkdir etc. But I cannot run the programs which I installed.

General :: Terminal Commands Running Behind The GUI?

Jan 10, 2010

Recently I gained interest in running command from the terminal, like rhythmbox-client --play-pause and vlc --open, but I could not find the vlc's pause command under vlc. there's a way I can have a terminal display the commands that run when I do some action. For example, when I click on pause in vlc, the terminal should show me what command it used to pause vlc. What's the closest ting I can get to this?

Software :: Running Two Commands Simultaneously From CLI?

Feb 10, 2009

what i want to do is run two commands (nautilus and gedit) from the command line/shell script at the same time. i can obviously do && between them, but this requires the first app to close before moving on to the second one. i want to run both apps at the same time so i can run gedit with some project files open on it, and nautilus to browse those files/other files.

Software :: SSH: Running Various Commands On A Router?

Jun 18, 2009

I have set up ssh to connect with a RSA key to a router. Now, I want to be able to run a chain of commands on that router the problem is that I can't send them separated with ; cause the router doesn't understand the separation, so I have to send the "<enter>" keys somehow. I tried to do it like this:

( echo ping localhost; echo ping localhost; ) | ssh -i blah user@router

The connection is established, but it gets broken after login and no command is executed. Is there a way I could tell ssh to read a text file where the chain of commands is?

Debian :: Running Admin Commands As Non-root

Apr 4, 2016

I use two separate systems both running Debian 8. On one (my main) I can't do some commands including ping, shutdown and reboot without running them as root user, however on my other system I can ping and reboot as a non-privileged user. The permissions on both systems are the same for /bin/ping and /sbin/systemctl (reboot). I thought at first it was something to do with what groups my main was in, but that doesn't seem to be the gase.

I know I can fix it by setting setuid for both, but my question is why is it different on both machines? Is there a global setting controlling this in /etc or perhaps an icmp setting?

Is this possible?I want to implement a command line type interface for my daemon so I can send it commands that will change the current values of specific variables, and also be able tell the daemon to load/save a config file.The only thing I have found so far is passing arguments to a daemon, but that seems to be a one-time shot when your first starting it.

CentOS 5 :: WGet Commands - Cron Job Not Running

May 25, 2010

I have the following cron configuration in the 'crontab' file:


# run-parts
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly
20 16 * * 1-5 root wget [URL]
07 30 * * 1-5 root wget [URL]
11 30 * * 1-5 root wget [URL]

My focus is on the three WGET commands. The problem is the first one works fine, runs at 4:20 p.m., but the other two never run! If I visit [URL] it works fine but cron never runs it.

General :: Does Running Commands Verbosely Make Them Slower

Jul 20, 2011

I've found myself using the -v flag for lots of applications less and less (especially for trivial stuff like tar and cp). However, when I did and I was, say, unzipping a large file, it would take longer than when I didn't use the -v flag.I assume this is because the terminal has to process the text and I'm filling up whatever buffer it might have. But my question is, does this make the application actually run slower or does it complete in the same amount of time and what I'm seeing is the terminal trying to catch up?

General :: Running Multiple Commands Remotely Via SSH In A Script?

Dec 18, 2009

In a script I am writing I am trying to add logic so that the script can figure out if a remote server uses rpm or dpkg and then run the appropriate command to print a list of installed packages. This works locally, but I need to get it to work through SSH and I have no idea how to do that. The relevant portion of the script is below. It would also be nice to find a way to not need the full path to the executables but I'm not real concerned about that.So anyone know how to make this code work via SSH?

if [ -x /usr/bin/dpkg ]; then
dpkg --get-selections

Programming :: Simple Bash Script Is Not Running All Of The Commands?

Jun 14, 2010

I am running a simple script that I copied from slug.ceca.utc.edu/docs/2009-3-26-linux-server-health.pdf and edited with the names and paths of my own servers. I don't know much about scripting (re: nothing) but I wanted to try and be efficient in my new role as a Linux Sys Admin. The script was saved to root's home directory and runs as part of root's crontab once a week. The script runs with no problem, but it doesn't actually seem to run all of the commands contained within. It skips some in the middle and the end and I don't know why. The script itself is this:

uname -a > /tmp/server.txt
