Ubuntu :: Show Current Commands In Terminal?

Jan 6, 2010

I was wondering if there was a way to show all current actions I am doing in a terminal window? For example if I left a terminal window open on one of my desktops, could I make it display everything I am doing so that when I receive some general error in a program, I could jump over and get some more details. I could also use it to see what commands are actually run when I do certain things.

Ubuntu :: Show Terminal Commands On Blog?

Apr 20, 2011

I mean, obviously I can just type them out and italicize them or something equally boring, but what I'd like to do is make the code look like it does on these forums.Code:sudo apt-get install html-knowledgeI've been Googling like a mad man (not a euphemism) for the better part of an hour and can't turn up any pertinent results. I thought maybe somebody here could point me in the right direction. I'm tired of my blog posts looking ugly and disorganized when I start typing commands.

Apr 27, 2011

I'm using Opensuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4. When using the task switcher, only programs open on the current desktop are visible. I think it would be handy to have the Launch Bar work in the same fashion.

Is it possible to have the Launch Bar only show programs open on the current desktop?

Ubuntu :: Multiple Commands At The Terminal?

Jan 21, 2010

I am in the process of coverting some video files to motion jpeg (Wii) files with ffmpeg (great program by the way). I have been successful and so the majority of my work is over. My question is simple (I think) but complex to me so... here it goes. Is there a way on one command line to "batch" convert 8 or 9 files together instead of one by one. I just don't know what to put on the command line. I took one UNIX class a long time ago and the terms pipe and such come to mind... but I forget. Any takers? That was I can write what I want the computer to do in the morning and just come back after work and voila...

Ubuntu :: How Does The Terminal Guess What Commands You Want?

Nov 17, 2010

I couldn't really find a general Ubuntu discussion area. So I typed ipconfig and of course it said no such command blah blah blah. What I found interesting was that it provided a list of other commands I may have meant to use, ie. ifconfig. So what's the algorithm used to determine the commands? Is it SOUNDEX or something else?

Ubuntu :: Get Into The Terminal From Keyboard Commands?

May 6, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04 today and wanted to reconfigure so that I could have the desktop cube again. Once I started trying to switch my settings for the cube configuration compiz asked whether I wanted to turn off various features and apparently among them was the control bar on the side and top of the screen. Now I log in to Ubuntu and I get my workspace and that's it. No control bars, just the workspace. I need to know a few things:

1) Has anyone else had this problem?

2) How do I get into the terminal from keyboard commands?

3) What terminal commands do I need to bring back at least the main toolbar so I can access programs.
