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 :: How To Kill Unresponsive Terminal Application

Feb 7, 2011

I just ran "mysqld" manually in the terminal, but now I can't quit it and go back to bash. I've tried CTRL+C and typing "reset", but neither do anything. Anything I type is just ignored. I've had this numerous times in the past with various operating systems and in various scenario's, hence why I'm seeking the solution. Is there some universal hotkey to quit the currently running application or something? I guess I'm looking for a way to send SIGQUIT, SIGTERM or possibly even a EOF signal?

Ubuntu :: Using A Terminal Application (CLI) As Default In Xubuntu

Jul 8, 2011

I do a lot of torrenting on my xubuntu box, and ever since my introduction to computers, I have become attracted to the command-line way of doing things. My default editor is vi, my default torrent programme is rtorrent, my default gopher client is lynx... you get the idea. My web browsing, and sometimes also my file browsing, however, is always in graphical mode.

As you know, downloading a torrent involves downloading a small file with the extension .torrent. When I clicked on this .torrent file, although I have rtorrent installed, Transmission showed up. Not to insult the Transmission guys, but compared to an ncurses-based torrent client, Transmission is just too bloated. Anyhow, I right-clicked on the file, Open With Other Application, etc.

Into the box that showed up, I typed /usr/bin/rtorrent (the path to my favourite torrent client), and clicked OK. I double-clicked on the torrent file again, and nothing. Transmission didn't show up, but neither did my terminal client. I'm sick of having to go to the Applications menu and firing up the Terminal to torrent a file. I'd like to have the Terminal open up with rtorrent as soon as I double click the file.

Ubuntu :: Prevent Application In Terminal From Auto Closing

Jan 15, 2011

I've made custom launchers for programs that can only run in terminal. They open fine within the Terminal window, but it closes right after the program is finished, before I can read the report.

Is there a way to keep the Terminal window open, using launchers? I don't want to manually type the commands after opening a Terminal.

Fedora :: Add Startup Application From Terminal

Jul 26, 2009

I am quite aware that one can add a startup application to the gnome session by going to System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications (Sessions). But, is there a way to achieve the same thing via the terminal? I want to know because I am writing a simple bash script that installs all of the programs I commonly use. One such program is compiz fusion with fusion-icon.And so I want to add the fusion-icon into the gnome session with my script (strictly within the terminal).

Ubuntu :: Error - Cannot Open Display - 0 - When Opening Any GTK Application From The Terminal

May 13, 2011

For awhile I have had this issue with the command line and every time I try to complete any command that requires GTK graphics, It always returns the error "Error: cannot open display: 0:" The "EXPORT display" command that I normally use to fix this issue is not working. The only issue that I can think might be the cause for this could be my upgrade to natty (which was in fact a clean installation), or when I edited plymouth so that the startup and shutdown animations would match my laptop's native resolution (by the way I would also appreciate it if I could do the same with the startup animation, only the shutdown really works). If anybody know how I could resolve this issue I would greatly appreciate it. Oh and for specifics on my machine, I am using an ASUS N82 with an NVIDIA GEFORCE GT335M graphics card, running Ubuntu 11.04.

Fedora :: Looking For A Good Console / Terminal Application?

Jan 2, 2011

Fedora 14 xfce
HP Netbook 210

I am looking for a good and practical console application. I use midnight commander a lot, and I find it frustrating every time I press the F10 key it displays the drop menu items using the terminal. On occasions I make invisible the menu bar, by disabling in the view menu.

So I am looking for a good console application that when I use midnight commander if I press the function key buttons it doesn't display the drop down menu options.

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 :: 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...
