Ubuntu :: Put In Synaptic The Cli Command To Start An Application

Jan 7, 2010

After having installed a certain programme, in my experience it can sometimes be slightly boring if you want to start the application from the terminal, but you can't figure out the right command, which to my knowledge is not always the same as the exact name of the application.

- Is there a way that I do not know to find this "start-up" command ? - Would it be convenient to include this command with the short description of the application as given in Synaptic (shown when selecting a programme in synaptic before marking it for installation etc.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Package Downloaded & Installed Via Synaptic - How To Start

Apr 30, 2010

Interested in trialing Varkon and used Synaptic Package Manager to download and install. According to the [url]...nstalling.html it should be there under 'Applications'. I've looked through them all and no sign of Varkon. I've also tried to see if Varkon was installed so I looked via Ubuntu Software Center under installed software. No sign. Did a file search for Varkon.

Ubuntu :: Synaptic - Apt - Not Placing Correct Command On Launchers ?

May 21, 2011

After a recent update on my Xubuntu 11.04 any new applications I install don't sym-link correctly.

For example if I install a game, we'll call it "game", normally you could just type

Code:

In terminal which is the same command assigned to the launchers in menu. Now that fails and the only way to launch is with full path e.g.

Code:

I'm not sure what changed because applications were installing and launching correctly until now.

Ubuntu :: Start An Application In Terminal?

Apr 29, 2010

I have a binary application that runs only in shell, now I want to open it from another application(Mathematica program) but simply invoking it will start it in memory but not in a shell.

I tryed "bash app" which does not work and "gnome-terminal app" just opens the terminal without launching that application.

Ps: Its the same thing as in Java when you want to invoke a system command like
ping but you need to do it like this .exec("cmd ping") instead of just ping.

Ubuntu :: Bin Application Failed To Start Properly

Nov 27, 2010

I accidentally deleted my bin just after booting up when the bin application failed to start properly. I can still send items to trash (right clicking and select from drop down menu) but I cannot restore them, see the bin icon or drag items to the bin area. It is quite annoying and I would be very grateful for comprehensive instructions on how to restore the bin to full operational functionality.

Ubuntu :: Start A GUI Application On Remote Computer Using Ssh?

Aug 18, 2011

I forgot to run a GUI process on a remote computer. I need to run the application as if I was at the computer i.e the application needs to open on the desktop on the remote computer.

I can connect to the computer through an ssh tunnel via another computer at the remote site and run non GUI based processes using Screen or bring some GUI programs to the computer I'm working from using the ssh -X option, however, this is not what I'm looking to do.

On Windows I used to use a program from sysinterns called PsExec which would let me start applications such as Word on the remote computer and I'm hoping that there is something similar on Linux.

Ubuntu :: Start A Wine Application In 64bit-mode?

Apr 26, 2011

I want to install a 64bit-only application in my wine.But every time i try to load the installer it says that it only works on a 64bit-system.Iv'e tried the 32-version of the app and it works fine.I heard that since version 1.2 wine is able to support 64bits.But how do I force wine to load an app in 64bit-mode? I'm guessing there is an option to the wine command or something. But what is it? can't find anything in the man-page. And a google on the subject only brings up old posts from people who are trying to install wine in 64bit-ubuntu...

General :: Start X Application On Remote Server?

Dec 7, 2010

I've been trying to make a cgi script that starts a program on a server and then shows the program on the servers screen. The cgi script is written in perl. I've been successful in making the program showing up on the screen through ssh by setting $DISPLAY to :0.0, I tried setting it to this in /etc/profile but when the cgi script ran nothing showed up on the screen. I tried having the script running it as a local user with "su - [user] -c [command]", this didn't help either.

In short what I'm trying to accomplish. When I press a button on a web page an slide show is supposed to start on a screen connected to the server.
